Hello & welcome to What It Is! This is a column that I’ve been telling myself I should start for awhile (ever since Matt asked me to contribute to the site!) but just haven’t really known what to talk about — then it hit me: talk about what I always talk about MUSIC! I’m not really sure where this will go but I plan to make this a weekly addition to your Kittysneezes fix and will probably address whatever I want!
For those of you new to the site you can look around at what I’ve written already to get an idea about what you can expect, or if your to lazy to do that then let me lay it out right here: I’m an obsessed record collector who is about to start his senior year at Seattle University where I’m majoring in Journalism. Along with record collecting comes a certain disposition for being an all around music junkie and that describes me pretty well, but I will say that Hip Hop is where my heart truly lies.
I went through a certain period of time getting more music that I will probably ever be able to listen to (but you can bet I will try!) and that stuff is pretty much what rules the airwaves of my IPod. When at home I generally am listening to records trying to dub my collection into my computer so as to not have to travel with it for awhile (I’m young & I want to see the world. Unfortunately records don’t lend themselves well to that goal).
So that’s me in a nutshell ? sure there are lots of other little intricacies but do you really want to hear about them? I thought not. I will deliver thoughts on music, society and anything else that is on my mind every Friday from now until the end of time (ok that might be a bit of an exaggeration). If you feel so inclined you are welcome to email me and berate me with your hate mail (maybe it’s to early to expect love?) or you can even travel to www.thefinds.blogspot.com and see what kind of records I’m collecting ? I will be taking the month of September off from diggin (read: the art of cultivating pieces of vinyl from bins and placing them into my personal collection) so you will be getting random pictures from the past for a little while but I guarantee you it won’t be boring ? if you are interested in vinyl that is!
Till next time stay up and let me know what you want to see here as it’s as much your space as it is mine… Hell, you can even sign up and start a column called What It Isn’t and just mock me, I don’t care. I’m here to deliver the goods and that’s what it is, till next week, peace!
