This is the third incarnation of this blog. In the first two I was bent on sharing my ROIO's with the world and, for a while at least, I was fairly successful. However these endeavours took up way too much of my time and I needed to walk away from them. This time I am seeking to accomplish something a different.
I envision this blog as a place to share what I feel passionately about. That certainly includes, but is not limited to, music, politics, pop culture, pretty much life in general. You need to know that I am a middle-aged teacher from Long Island that is a registered independent that leans a bit right of center. This should help when reading my thoughts on the state of things in America.
Music is central to my life. I've been a music "junkie" as long as I can remember. The first album that I got was Elton John's "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road" back in 1973 or 74. My first concert was Kiss and I've bought thousands of albums and CD's and seen hundreds of shows since then.
If you are looking for download links for the albums I review here, well look elsewhere. All links will be to the artists web site or one of the commercial services such as Amazon. No judgements here on downloading, it's just not my intention with this blog.
So if you have found me somehow, leave a comment, let me know what you think, and welcome.
