New Blog, All Music, All the Time

Hello, there.

When I started this blog, I had mentioned that I wanted to discuss three things: hockey, random stuff that makes me a fascinating fellow, and music.

Hockey? Check.

Randomness? Check.

Music? Not quite.

I wrote a few posts about a few different musical things. One was about heavy metal as a genre, another was about Avenged Sevenfold's album, "Nightmare," and the other was about my favorite album of all time, The Who's "Quadrophenia". None of them really fit with what I'd been doing previously on this blog.

Because of this, I'm creating a separate blog for divulging my deepest, darkest thoughts on music. This one will still be going, but I feel that not being able to write about music would be a mistake for me, so I'm doing this, as well. I feel that I know a lot about hockey, but I also feel that I know twice as much about music.

I'd like to eventually turn writing into a career of sorts, or at least have it make up a large part of my career, and I think that making a second blog about music, where I can sort of challenge myself to be serious, is a good idea for practice. It's difficult for me to do that, and most of my posts on this blog look like a snarky college student's attempt at talking smack on everything around me, or an attempt to just make fun of myself.

Therefore, I've created "Over The Wills And Far Away," which is my extremely lame attempt to turn a Led Zeppelin classic into a cheesy name for my blog. I'll admit, I took the idea from a blog I used to read, called "Houses of the Hockey" ("Houses of the Holy," by Led Zeppelin (1973), was the inspiration there). What a terrible name I've given this new place. It'll change, but that's what I'm going with for right now, so deal with it.

The URL for the site is

Don't go there yet, because there's nothing to see right now. I have to set up, format, and write a post first. I'll let you know when that is. EDIT: IT'S UP AND RUNNING

Anyways, thanks for faking interest for my sake! Or maybe, just mayyyyybe, you really enjoy my writing. If you're in the latter category, you're probably my Mother, but it's nice all the same.

And remember....
