I am a music lover who finally got off her duff (or on it, I suppose) and started sharing her opinions about music. I care passionately about music. As a former English major, I was trained to read texts very carefully. As a student of pop culture and post-modernism, I think “text” can mean a lot of different things. Songs are just a different kind of text, to be read with the ears.
I live in Southern California (the greater Long Beach area) with my mother, the memory of my father, my cats, and a lot of CDs & books. I try to stay involved with the rest of the world, so it might bleed into my jukebox on occasion. But that’s part of the joy of music: it matters all the time for all kinds of reasons. I’m going to try to share with others some of the reasons music matters to me.
And it turns out somebody likes me!
