"blog for yourself..."
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...
