Influences

I’d like to take this opportunity to “highlight” one of the blogs on my “blogroll”; Monitor Mix. Monitor Mix is written by a member of Sleater-Kinney, one of the greatest bands out there (on an “indefinite haitus”), and is probably one of the motivations for my beginning to write a blog. Sleater-Kinney and the like, riot bands are another post for another day. But everyone should check out Monitor Mix. She writes about subjects beyond music, too! And it’s hosted by NPR, so how could you possibly go wrong (ha…).The author writes very well about pop culture phenomenon and today, she blogged about trying to find the common roots for rock music – you really have to see what she wrote to understand. This is something I think about a lot but I don’t quite have the extensive knowledge to allow me to come to any conclusions. I can play the “it sounds like” game, but my capabilities only extend so far. Just something to think about…
