Change Is a Comin'
I've been toying with the idea of revamping this blog. One of the biggest issues I have when writing about music is the proliferation of new bands these days. DIY is taking over the world, and now anyone can become a musician, promoter, and overnight sensation. I just read an article this morning about how 3D printers may one day become a home-based option—meaning you could design yourself a pair of socks or a new cooking pan on your computer and "print" either at home, avoiding a trip to the store, or even design yourself a car online and have it printed at the local car dealership. Manufacturing as we know it would be dead. The old music industry is already dead. I can't keep up with grassroots rock, and my posts feel a tad formulaic, as in, This band is from Portland and sounds like this other band from North Carolina....
I love music. I love writing. But I'm boring myself lately with writing about music.
I think I just need to tweak a few things...possibly the entire blog.
