First post.

Well I finally decided to take the plunge and start a blog. And surprise,'s a music blog. Anyway, as soon as the holidays are over, I will try to allocate some time to updating this thing on a semi-regular basis. I'm kinda of new to this, not quite sure how everything works, haven't made any blogger friends it's kinda like the first day of school. Except I didn't get any new clothes or a Trapper Keeper. Stay tuned, hopefully I won't fuck this up.
