Rock ‘n’ roll never sleeps… but rock ‘n’ roll bloggers do (occasionally).
It’s March Break here in beautiful BC, and with nine precious days off of work, I figure it’s high time I tear myself away from my iPad for a change and get reacquainted with my family. So, barring any bombshell news from The Airborne Toxic Event that distracts me from my eagerly anticipated life of laziness, I’ve got nothin’ for ya this week. Sorry.
But I know that hungry TATE fans demand to be fed. Your steady diet of TATE minutiae will return next week, I promise. In the meantime, just in case you need a morsel, I’ll resort to that time tested blogging tactic: the recap post.
It seems that the most popular posts on This Is Nowhere (and certainly my favorite ones to write) are those that drill down into a particular song. Never does the tag line “a little less profound” seem more apt than when I’m attempting to get beneath the surface of one of Mikel Jollett’s lyrical masterpieces and put into words what it means to me. But it sure is fun to try.
So, ICYMI, here’s a listing of song analysis posts written over the past nine months. If you haven’t already perused them, I’d be honored if you’d check them out. There are many more to come. If you’ve got a song you’d like to see covered in the future, please leave your suggestion in the comments below!
