This website is growing remarkably personal. Originally it was going to be mainly about music, interspersed with the odd rant, but really the truth is that I don't really want to write about music so much as just write
in general. I constantly feel the need to frame my thoughts
in my head, as if for posterity. Whether it's "how would I review this song" or "how will I remember this moment in fifteen years" is largely irrelevant. And you know, it's kinda funny how we have this grand public speaker existing only in our heads, pontificating wildly to an audience of exactly one. Surely, I think, my mind deserves more than this. And when Fred
speaks about reaching out to the largest of possible audience, this is what I think he actually means. I think it is fairly easy to establish that we waste our intelligence on ourselves. More troubling is the question of whether the fiercely personal thoughts that plague us in our most private moments are not also somehow diminished by that very privacy. I'd like to think that as humans we are all thinking about more different things than ever before, but sadly we seem to be sharing less of it all the time. Do blogs fight this? Maybe, maybe not. But I feel like fighting it somehow, if only in this small way, and if only because I like the inherent drama of lost causes.
