I'm just gonna do this and pretend like I've always been doing it. Otherwise, I'll just keep putting it off, like I have been, becoming increasingly intimidated by every existing blog's increasing length (and knitting, and knitting...).
Let's hope that this is a rare excursion into metablogging for me. Let's also hope it's the last time I use "blog" as a verb at all, ever.
Anyway, I intend fourfour to be a collection of my interests, particularly of the pop-culture sort, specifically those of the musical variety and especially that which has the 4/4 stomp. My baby girl's name is house music (the post-acid period of '89-'94 is my fav), but I love disco almost as much. My taste doesn't stop there (I'm an avid fan of electronic music, including contemporary R&B, in particular). But my main intention with fourfour is to write about and share things the ever-snappy world of musical journalism deems too old to cover (i.e. EVERYTHING), since I frequently get my timeliness on in print (via MAGNET, BUST and The Miami New Times, among places). In addition to my words, I'll be posting MP3s and, whenever I can get my shit together, my own vinyl mixes.
Thanks for stopping by. I got percussions you're gonna like.
