Good Vibrations is a blog about music fandom.
When I started, I tried my hand at amateur music criticism. But it just wasn’t fun. The format was too restrictive; the risk of sounding lame was too great.
Then I decided to write about music from the perspective of a fan. After all, I named the blog in honor of my favorite band, The Beach Boys. So why not create a forum for me and other music lovers to fan out over what we’re passionate about?
By scanning past posts, you’ll see content ranging from more conventional album reviews to listicles and meditations on who the nicest rapper might be. It’s not the most informative reading. But it’s more fun than pretending I have the knowledge and credibility to formally criticize music.
This site will is also a collaborative effort. From time to time, you’ll see articles and posts others have written, which give you, fair reader, a break from my tedious prose. If you’re interested in contributing, please contact me at email@example.com.
