Act 1. No. 1 - The Arrival of 1/8 Escape

Life is filled with ups and downs (think sine curve) and music is the universal medium, outside of certain recreational drugs, through which we can celebrate the highs and escape the reality of the lows.

Well, I have finally decided to start a blog to chronicle, share, and receive wider input on my exploration of music. I created this blog as a way to share songs/artists/albums/music events (and whatever else I feel like talking about that is music related) as I continue on my musical journey. I am not a musician but I believe that the more you love music, the more music you love. As such, I'm always looking for new music to explore so please feel free to leave recommendations of songs/artists/albums in the comments on this or any future post.

The title of this post was inspired by the title of Act 1. No.4 (Arrival of Drosselmeyer) from the popular ballet "The Nutcracker"...the music for which was composed by Tchaikovsky.

--If you like music by Tchaikovsky then you may want to try music from Jean Sibelius, Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov, Sergei Prokofiev, Antonin Dvorak.

--For more music by Wale get your hands on his last mix tape. In the meantime you can try this, this, or his feature on The Roots' 2008 album.


  1. Not a musician? I do believe you own one guitar. That's gotta' count for something. I tuned it once.

  2. Meh. Not sure that owning an instrument qualifies me as a musician. It's something I'd like to work on this year though :)
