On the Necessity of the Pop Music Blog

Take a look at this sweaty guy.

He is me.

This picture illuminates why I want to write this blog. It's the visual equivalent of how much I care about popular music.

I think about it all the time, and I want to discuss it with like-minded folks.

Which would be you.

Won't you join me as I roam the pop landscape? There's so much ground to cover, from rock to rap, from college folkies to all the dead hippies whose records my parents still love.

I want this website to be a place for thoughtful, exuberant discussions of pop. Let's discuss how we both feel and think about the songs, albums, and artists that matter.

Anything goes except rudeness, name-calling, or an inability to see that other people are allowed to disagree with your opinion. Beyond that, the gates are open. Let the discussion begin.

Note : I only deleted Laura's comment because it referred to a version of this post that was later deleted.

Out of context, Laura's comment would have made no sense. In context, though, it was hilarious. Trust me.

Please tell me you have some Old 97's. If not, we must rectify this immediately.

Sadly, I do not own any music by Old 97's. I have heard of them, though. Do tell me more!
