Blog is about Synths, cats, music, movies and life. That’s my tagline. It’s about artists helping other artists, regardless of medium. I’ll find a way for you to contribute if you’re interested. It’s about my learning process, gear reviews, and random musings. I have one contributor who’s big on horror movie reviews. Her name is Eve.
A genuine lack of musicians in my area inspired me to start my blog. I had no one to work with or share what I’d written, so I said the hell with it and bought a domain. Since then, I’ve been hunting down fellow musicians for interviews and their stories. Many are happy for the exposure.
As my contributor puts it, it’s mutually beneficial and we get to remain an ‘underground’ and ‘cutting edge’ site. Also, I’m inspired by my love of synths. As a Musician with a bum right arm, these doo-dads keep me going. I can keep writing without the pain drumming was causing me.
Well, essentially I wanted my blog to represent a number of things:
Be a conduit for debates on contemporary issues.
A means of connecting with fellow creatives
A library of all my shorts stories, film reviews and think pieces etc.
Finally, and most importantly, a form of self-expression. My mind is constantly overflowing with thoughts and ideas, and I felt that creating a blog was the best way of getting them all out before I exploded.
I believe classic film is good for you, like expensive chocolate or a day at the spa. I write about old movies – some of ’em are classics, and some definitely are not. I have a bad habit of commenting on films as I’m watching them.
My loved ones finally said, “You should blog about your astute observations instead of telling us.” However, they used a more colorful phrase than “astute observations”… and I’ve been blogging ever since.
