A Proper Introduction
I was supposed to start this a loooooooong time ago, but I never had the chance to.
Okay, that was a bluff. I had several chances to do so, but I never willed myself to see it through because I didn't have any idea what to tackle in my would-be blurbs. Over the past few weeks however, the idea of getting this blog thing underway had been an incessant voice in my head, nagging away at my senses every chance it got. And finally, I felt the urge to start tapping away on my keyboard and letting out whatever idea synchronizes with my fingers.
Seeing as it is the first entry I'm writing for a defined string of blog entries, I figured it would be best to start with the most basic takeoff point for virtually anything: the introduction.
By now, you've probably already seen some of the previously published entries on the site written by myself and my fellow DIG Radio jocks. As examples for instance, there's that post by April talking about the rigors of preparing for a wedding and marriage in general; Shanen's entry about the portraits she drew of the people she has met and dreamt of meeting to thank them for the music they have given to the world; my first encounter with Offbeat Cafe, and Kim's thoughts about watching the Red Hot Chili Peppers live in Hong Kong a few months ago. If you haven't seen them yet, I suggest you skim (yes, skim, not even read, because I know us Internet-browsing types tend to have short attention spans) these entries to get an idea of what we've done.
Some of you are probably wondering why we dabble with writing now as well when we're essentially jocks. First off, we'd like to believe we're creative, so why not? Second, we figured it would be a nice added touch to the entire Internet-based radio platform we're currently on, so we'd give it a whirl and see how we'll do.
And this is me personally doing just that. For my part, most of the succeeding entries you're going to see from me will consist of thoughts, ideas, and other stuff I have seen and will see in my forays into the crazy world of the live music circuit. Do expect a mix of pensive, weird, downright factual and, ocassionally, stand-offish entries from my end. Hey, I'm human just like you, so I think I'm entitled to some emotions as well, right?
In any case, I think that's about enough for this first blurb. Let's see where things go from here.
