First post

Hi, welcome to my homey little site. If you have followed my personal online projects in the past, then welcome back. This is the sixth or seventh blog/site I’ve launched; I can’t remember them all. The only one worth mentioning is Plug One, a site I managed between 2006 and 2011, and which remains archived online.

Over the next few months and beyond, I will add reviews from my 15-plus career as a music journalist. I also hope to write some new ones specifically for this site as time permits, but more likely I will add freelance reviews that I think are good enough for posterity. Unlike past projects, I won’t be using any pseudonyms. It’s just me and my words. My current inspiration for Critical Minded is Pauline Kael’s 5001 Nights at the Movies, and the way it serves as a virtual history of her movie-going life. I hope to use this as a repository for my years of listening to and reviewing hip-hop music “and other errata.” However, experience has taught me that goals often change over time.
