this is my (mostly) music blog. i wanted a space where i could wax poetically about all the bands and artists i love. (my heart and my cd collection is v. v. big.) you'll also find a smattering of writing related things, since that's what i'm doing these days, along with other pop culture miscellanea.
things you need to know: i live in chicago, but i used to live in new york city. i go to a lot of shows. i stopped being ashamed of my musical tastes a long time ago. the first time i heard "eleanor rigby" by the beatles, i was nine years old and i still get goosebumps when i hear those opening strings. i sing - trained in opera, musical theater, and everything in between.
