So I’ve avoided discussing music (except for in a cinematic context) on this blog since its inception. I feel it’s appropriate that I have, since I feel any publication (even an insignificant little blog like this one) covering too many mediums becomes cluttered unless done correctly; I don’t have the capabilities to create a multiple medium blog, mostly because my technical prowess within the digital realm is lacking. I’m not a digital Neanderthal by any means but I’m not as computer savvy as others. However, my desire for a music blog has not subsided and after much deliberation I’ve decided I should stretch myself and embark on a blog discussing music.
Enter Aural Abortions. Although I don’t claim authorship of this little piece of cyberspace, I do endorse it. This little blog will chronicle what I feel are some of the best pieces of music around, facilitating their circulation. Although this blog doesn’t distribute a thing, it does inform those interested about a variety of wonderful little pieces of music that have become part of the aural zeitgeist since the beginnings of audio recordings. Whether it’s punk, hardcore, metal, experimental, old blues, old jazz, soundtracks, rock, or just about anything else, Aural Abortions will cover it. Expect posts almost daily too.
As soon as I figure out a way to incorporate Aural Abortions into Abortions For All I will but for the moment it’ll act as a standalone blog, drifting through cyberspace and spreading the gospel about some amazing little pieces of music (mostly originally on vinyl) that has graced my turntable and made countless others happy. So please, check out this site and explore the music it endorses. Thank you.
Also, expect posts in the next few days regarding Showgirls, The Adjustment Bureau, The Lost Boys, and many others. I just finished my thesis defense (and I passed) and aside from a few final assignments before graduation (including work on a piece for actual publication in an academic journal) I will soon have more free time on my hands.
