This site is devoted to musings about music, film, theatre and sundry artistic pursuits. More specifically, it’s about things that have made an indelible impression on my memory for a plethora of reasons that will become apparent if you decide to take the plunge, and and squeeze through the ‘S’ bend of my mind. It’s also a kind of archive, which allows me to keep track of my patterns of consumption. As a member of the privileged bourgeois class, I get to see and hear a lot of shit, which generally passes through my brain like a dose of the runs. This blog is one way of ensuring I reflect on what I do in my leisure time. I want to be an active spectator, damn it! I intend to post short pieces regularly, but if a topic inspires me to produce something lengthy it will get its own page. So, essay length posts will appear in the drop-down menu from time to time.
I worship in a broad church, brothers and sisters. I appreciate all genres, and my tastes are as eclectic as the world itself. From the low moans and hollers of the Mississippi delta, to the electric thrash of industrial wastelands, from jungle toms to orchestral tympani, from guttural wails to transcendent angelic harmonies, I listen to all sorts of shit. I also try to keep abreast of what’s happening in the world of film, television and theatre. So, abandon prejudice and preconceptions, all ye that enter here.
Welcome to my world.
