about this blog
Schrödinger’s Blog is a music blog which offers reviews and samples of current independent music. Sometimes I like to, for the sake of context, review some older material, but more than anything the blog acts as a mechanism for me to organize my thoughts about new material; the main focus being that most of the music is good.
I don’t bother writing up a lot of poor reviews, simply because its exhaustive and not especially constructive to rehash in detail something I didn’t enjoy. As a result, most things that show up here I either liked, or were from artists I had previously enjoyed. If you see something missing, I’m always on the prowl for new music, so feel free to contact me.
A Bit of History
I started blogging way, way back in the summer of 2002, when not a lot of people really even knew what a “blog” was. Granted, at the time I was 14, and the content didn’t amount to a great deal. My experiences were mediocre at best, and my vocabulary even worse. In time, the blog matured a little, and by the time I headed off to University I decided it was time to shut down that project and begin a new one. This was the first incarnation of “Schrödinger’s Blog,” whose content was still just random musings, punctuated by the occasional rant or tirade.
In the summer 2009, the format was changed. For years, I’d used the titles of songs for the entry headers, and during college I’d even begun compiling “Best Of 20XX” lists of my favorite albums. The format change came when I realized this was really my favorite part of blogging, so why not do it “full time”? So while the blog itself is actually quite old, the music-format is in fact quite new.
As For Me?
I’m a graduate student of physics studying in Boston, MA (USA). I enjoy listening to music and playing with computers (hardware and web-applications, mostly), as well as following current political events. The latter two occasionally bleed into the blog, but I have a tough enough time just keeping up with the music, much less the daily developments in the other two areas.
