The Richter Scales: Men Who Blog

Anyone ever wonder why singing is such a release? On the worst of days, I can sing on the way home and feel a little better a short 20 minutes later. People sing in the car, sing in the shower, sing along to tunes in a club (where else do you sing?). It's like dancing but I think does it for even more people (and you can do it in less space).

OK...this site is brilliant. A complete geneological survey of modern popular music. At least, the electronic kind, which is most of it. Trace the development of Trance, Hardcore, Techno all the way from Disco, Funk, and HipHop, complete with audio samples and snarky commentary. Come spend a few hours at

Ishkur's Guide to Electronic Music.

OK. This isn't exactly your typical blog entry, but I can't send email to the group from my remote access in Boston. Vince is running rehearsal this Thursday, and this is what I think should be worked on.

Song of the day: "I Wonder Why the Wonderfalls", the theme from the TV show Wonderfalls (on tonight, BTW), sung by XTC's Andy Partridge. The show itself is, frankly, no great shakes, despite all the critics' gushing; but the song is infectious. In a good way. Surf on over to http://www.fox.com/wonderfalls/ and click on "watch the music video" (evil Flash Player 7 required) to see what I mean.
It's alive!


The bad news is, rehearsal last night was cancelled due to poor attendance. The good news is, it gave me time to put the finishing touches on our brand spankin' new BLOG. Enjoy.

So, my good buddy Sarah Bunting (from www.tomatonation.com and televisionwithoutpity.com) has chosen www.richterscales.com as the "site of the week" at tomatonation. And she says she still has "I Got Mail" going through her head. Poor girl.

Hey, while your here, why don't you go visit her sites and see what her deal is.

This is my first blog - I guess that makes me a Blog virgin - so, please be gentle
Is this thing on ... hello? hello?
Hey guys. I just got hosed from a production of Into The Woods. Didn't even get a callback. (Might have had something to do with the several dozen conflicts I put down on the audition sheet, including a conflict with one of the performances.)
Kudos to Matt and Curtis for creating our blog. Gold stars go to both of you!

Hey hey. It looks like we might actually have a blog going here. How absolutely fascinating.
