Getting started.....

“It's a terrible thing, I think, in life to wait until you're ready. I have this feeling now that actually no one is ever ready to do anything. There's almost no such thing as ready. There's only now. And you may as well do it now. I mean, I say that confidently as if I'm about to go bungee jumping or something - I'm not. I'm not a crazed risk taker. But I do think that, generally speaking, now is as good a time as any.” (Hugh Laurie)

I've thought about doing a music blog for ages. But I never really knew what approach I wanted to take with it. Straight reviews? How it affects me personally? Just links to other music news with my own comments? I still have no idea! I'm definitely probably "not ready" but here it goes anyway! After all, it is just a music blog, not rocket science. So, here's me....just making up the rules as I go along.

Anybody who knows me, knows how much I love music. I have way over a thousand cds and a husband who, instead of divorcing me because I won't stop buying music, has insured my cd collection instead. True love, ha!
I love alternative rock, though I occasionally open my mind a little wider. Last week, an old friend that I used to work with at a cd store referred to me as a "crazy dictator" because I always took over the music in the shop. I won't name names.....but I know that Bubba meant it in the most affectionate way possible. Oops! 

So, it starts here. And I'm just keeping my fingers crossed that Hugh Laurie was right!
