I admit…I’m not an easy person to understand. I’m what some may call “complex.”
I could sit here and type up little things about me. BUT…I won’t. I’m going to let my writing speak for itself — be an enigma for a while.
I can’t lie…I definitely typed up a list of things I could tell you about myself — things I am and things I’m not. As I read it back, it honestly sounded like a therapy session. As much as I see writing as a form of therapy for me, some things are better left unsaid. I was ready to tell all in ways I never have before. Everyone who knows those important details about me has learned them. Not because I told them, but because they cared to learn.
Think about this like dating: you don’t show up to a first date and start spilling every single detail about yourself. And if you didn’t already scare the person off spilling all on the the first date, there wouldn’t be anything left to talk about the second date. A little intrigue is good…keep them guessing and wanting more.
Slowly but surely, I’ll share. Occasionally, I’ll directly share intimate parts about myself. Sometimes I may not be so direct, and you’ll just have to infer from other articles. I may be sharing my story, my opinions, and my interests; but, truthfully, this blog isn’t about me. It’s about the bigger picture, the takeaways from each article… whether it’s appreciating the meaning behind art forms or supporting the LGBTQ+ community.
It all boils down to this: I’m a wearer of many hats. I’m not just one thing and neither is this blog.
Soooo…whoever’s reading this: if you care to learn more, keep reading. And if not, so be it. Just like dating, sometimes people stick around and some don’t…no biggie.
A Writer, But Not A Critic
Let’s make one thing perfectly clear: I’m not a music critic.
I analyze music, I don’t critique it…there’s a difference. I write about the music I like, the music which moves me. You won’t see me write about the songs or albums that I don’t like. If I don’t like something: I simply let it be, leave it off my site, and move on.
My reasoning is simple: music is subjective. Just because I don’t like something doesn’t mean you won’t. I don’t appreciate the entirety of the critic business for this reason. I’m not going to sit here and tear an artist’s prized work to shreds simply because it’s not to my taste. Just because it isn’t for me doesn’t mean it’s bad music.
I don’t let a critic’s reviews sway my opinion about an album or a song or a musical style. There have been plenty of poorly reviewed albums which I have loved. So don’t let critics poison a piece of work before you give it a chance…you may lose out on the music that is meant for you.
