Hello. I’m Flipdog, aka LastGnomeStanding, aka El-Ronus Mariachi, aka Jason, aka Daddy depending on how you encounter me and who you are when you encounter me. Admittedly, one of them is not widely used.
This blog exists because I can’t believe I’m the only person who gets excited about the music that I shall be posting, which is spread far and wide across the stylistic landscape. I don’t have an intended audience. I assume everybody’s taste is as varied as mine. Who knows? Maybe it’s wider. But anyway, hopefully a reader will go away having been made aware of some music that they may not have been aware of previously, and they will be glad for that service. Mostly, the music I post will be relatively contemporary to the day that I posted it, simply because of my own habits of listening, but I reserve the right to delve into the archives of my mind when it is convenient for me to so do.
I’ve recently decided to suspend commentary on the posts, since experience shows me that I cannot adequately convey useful information about the music that cannot be provided by simply listening to the music, which is almost always embedded in the post. I’m still in two minds as to whether to include non-sequiturial words to accompany the music. I suspect that may depend on what mood I’m in.
As a dabbler in the art myself, you may see from what angle I have arrived here by having a listen, should you so choose. My website and my bandcamp will give you an idea of both where I’m at now, and where I’ve been in the last some years. I don’t do any other kind of social media, and have no immediate plans to.
Every now and again, however, I intend to do a sort of ‘macro-post’ whereby I’ll be trying to make a larger point, by indulging in opinions.
Also, I automatically assume intelligence in my audience; for this reason I shall not be giving nods, hints and winks when my tongue is in my cheek. I remain a firm believer in ‘if you treat people like children, they act like children…’ – and yes, I do have children.
Also, I have a young sister blog called Seeds of Syntropy.
