Mea Culpa - State Of The Blog Address

I think I would have shamed my patron saints of rock n roll, The Hold Steady, tonight. I broke my own cardinal rule. I dropped the ball. I went negative.

My whole reason for starting this blog(aside from it being a fun way to kill time while at the office) was simply to share songs that I love with as many people as possible. No advertising, no agenda, no real game plan. I just wanted to sort of use this as a soundtrack to my life. A sounding board for my thoughts, in the most literal sense. Everything I do, everything I think, everything I feel has a song attached to it...for better or worse. I am forever thinking in song lyrics and my mind instantly attaches a song to any situation I find myself in. It's a blessing and a curse. Actually, it's all blessing.

But every now and again I find myself in mid-sentence, bad mouthing a band or a song, and that should never happen here. Sure, there are bands I don't like. But I don't need to broadcast it here. Stay positive.. Those two words are now officially my mission statement. The Hold Steady almost taught me. I should NEVER doubt Craig Finn. Ever.

And since I am on the subject of the blog, I just wanted to say a gigantic THANK YOU to anyone and everyone who has stumbled across this site and taken the time to read these ramblings. And an extra special thanks to those who take the time to comment. Even if i am too scatter-brained, or otherwise unavailable, to respond...I appreciate the comments so much. There is just SO much stuff floating around here on this interweb we to think that anyone takes the time to come and check out what I have to say...means the world to me.

You are loved.

Stay Positive
