Now Playing: john morales - the m&m mixes
today i remembered why i love listening to media hacks: the spontaneity of conversation and thought. i just listened to episode #20 and it set off a bunch of thoughts in my head. the seed was planted with episode #19. heard that one while exercising and at one point, mitch joel talked about hearing others say to him, "i don't know who i should blog for." to which he replied, "blog for yourself."
that really resonated with me. i keep saying to myself that i don't have the time to write. actually, i do. the list of daily accomplishments needs to be a shorter list, a more realistic one. jotting down a few thoughts every other day shouldn't be a goal that's out of reach. i dig twitter, but the work day is too swamped to fire off those 140 characters like i did when i first came across it. besides that, i was reminded by mitch and julien smith that a "tweet" is the data equivalent of a fart in the wind: it's there for a period of time, but after that it disappears. and once a tweet disappears, it's very difficult to find again. blog entries, however, have staying power and are far easier to search.
prior to this entry, i wrote another music review for impose magazine and it felt good to stop stalling and just get it done. and every week (or every other week), i've been posting a blog entry over at wfmu's free music archive. been rather consistent with it, too. basically, i need to force myself to go beyond the 140 characters and write. but right now, a brother needs sleep...
