Music Blog + Routine = Betterpants!

Modern life is repetition.  Modern life is repetition.

Song randomly playing at the beginning of this post: "I Wanna Be Adored" by The Stone Roses

I know this girl named Angela who has the nickname of "Angiepants".  I wake up in the middle of the night often thinking both about how awesome that nickname is and lamenting the fact that I didn't come up with it first.  Anyway, the addition of "pants" to pretty much any name or adjective simply makes it better.  This is science.  And so as a man in constant pursuit of self-actualization, I am looking for ways to be "betterpants".  One way I can accomplish this is by making a plan--a routine if you will--for this blog.  It'll keep me writing, keep me thinking, and keep me betterpantsing all up in this place. 

There will be four "staple posts" per week:

     A.  The Sunday Record--Every Sunday I get up out of bed whenever and before I do almost anything
           else, I put on an album to listen to.  It sets the tone, it makes me think of my life, my week, my regrets,
           my hopes, my breakfast, etc.  Anyway, this is a treasured part of my week and one of the few things
           I get right about my life.  So now, I'll do the same thing, except I'll let you know what it is and write
           about the album and blah, blah.  Just like the "Workout Playlist of the Week", maybe you'll discover
           something new, re-discover something or whatever.
     B.  Workout Playlist of the Week (Monday)--Scroll down or see here for an explanation.
     C.  Music Humane Society Thursdays--Highlighting a great album you should go get before it gets put
           to death and we have to make a huge billboard with a sad animal face and you feel really, really guilty.
           Yeah, still figuring it out but the point is that there are albums old and new, classic and unknown, that
           you should just get because I said so and I don't ask you for much.
     D.  Album Covers as Art (Wednesday)--This is an easy one.  There are an endless supply of amazing,
           disturbing, thoughtful, sexual, completely unique album covers out there.  At the very least, I might
           give you an idea for some new iPhone wallpaper each week.

Anyway, there will be plenty of random thrown in as well, I'm sure.  And of course, this schedule is subject to change due to work, the opportunity to successfully or unsuccessfully pursue sex, or my untimely death or incapacitation.  That is all.  Enjoy your Saturday.  See you bright and early tomorrow.  Or sometime tomorrow.  The schedule is set.  Now that I've put it out there like this, I'm less likely to stray from posting.  I wouldn't want to disappoint both of you reading this.  Even though I probably will.

    1. Damn you.
    2. Me being a designer coupled with my music obsession could easily turn me into a valuable resource for your D category of posts. I have a lot of knowledge on this subject. ;)
