It should be pretty obvious if you read this blog that I am not a professional writer. I'm just a fan of movies and music, and I've been told I have a modicum of ability, so I decided to share my opinions and hopefully expose people to new things.
To that end, I'd like to point out that my older brother, who is responsible for the majority of my musical taste, also maintains his own blog. Named for a Grandaddy song, Now It's On is dedicated mostly to indepedent music and offers up for more content in that field than my own. Unlike me, he has also had some professional writing experience (albeit for smaller sports papers, not music-related).
If you're looking for some honest reviews that don't contain obscure references to hipper, more underground bands than the one being reviewed and Radiohead comparisons (*cough*Pitchfork*cough*), check it out via the sidebar (left) or the handy link in this post.
