As a creative person I find it very difficult to focus on many different things at once. I have many interests, and I want to do and accomplish just about everything, but I only have two real passions in life: politics and music.
As you can see, I have suffered a four-month-long writer’s block. I blame Bush.
But in all seriousness, ever since I moved to Washington, I have been consumed by politics 15 hours a day, and this blog quickly turned from something I enjoyed doing into something I had to do. And as any rebel would know, I don’t like being told what to do. So I haven’t done it. I’m hoping that through this medium I can merge my two passions, while still being relevant. I can analyze politics through music, whether it be present or past. I can have political posts and musical posts or a fusion of the two.
I realize that some people aren’t going to be happy with this, and maybe some references will get lost on the audience, but almost every song in rock history can be interpreted into some kind of political statement. I think there’s an untapped resource there that I intend the tap the hell out of.
I’m so unbelievably thankful I have people out there… patriots willing to be patient and follow me along this journey. I hope you’ll stick with me through this transition.
I know it’s the peak of the election season, but let’s have a little change of pace.
