So George is making my website. But he’s also making me write one of these infernal blog things. It’s not that I’m resistant to the idea; it’s just that I’m kinda busy, and I’m worried about making another commitment. Okay, let’s be honest. It’s probably more a case of not wanting to put effort into something that has the potential of making even less impact on the world than the stuff I’m actually working on. There’s a lot of chatter out there. And frankly, I don’t know where everyone finds the time for all that blogging and pintering and twitting and whatever else you’re all so engaged in while you’re walking into traffic. Hey, this is fun.
So I guess the idea is that I’m supposed to post these little dispatches (about what, who knows) on a regular basis, to provide the undiscriminating reader a glimpse into the molar-shattering thrillride that is being a sequestered composer. AND lyricist. (Honestly, the excitement never ends.) If the intrigue of lost files, elusive rhymes and broken guitar strings isn’t part of your day-to-day, I’ll try not to get too technical. And if we get bored, maybe I’ll just post some cat videos. Until then, be thankful that I do not yet know how to do this.
I can remember when it took quadruple the time to create sheet music on a computer than it did by hand – while blindfolded, with a different song playing in the background – and now I live for my devices, so I guess they’re here to stay. (This just in.) So…why not. Welcome to my blog, earthlings.
And yes, I know that pintering and twitting are not real things. Come on, now.
