When you’re born, your parents give you a name. The majority stick with it, but sometimes you need to move on.
Road to Nowhere is a funky little number by Talking Heads that is deceptive in it’s catchiness: it’s actually a song about death. I always loved the duality – a message about how we view mortality sugar-coated within a catchy pop tune.
That’s why it seemed a great name for a blog. The destination is the same for all of us, it’s how we get there and what we do with our lot that makes us different.
That was then. This is now. Time to move on.
I considered other song titles as I’m a music addict:
- What You Need – a powerful piece of rock from INXS
- I Hear Motion – stunningly hypnotic alt-rock from The Models
- Learnalilgivinanlovin – a modern mantra for happy living by Gotye
But this blog was meant to help me reconnect with my creativity, so I needed to brainstorm.
Who am I and what is this blog’s purpose?
As a member of the “common people” I hope to unveil hidden gems, kick up ideas, and stir conversations.
Bit long for a blog name, so after much word association, the inauspicious Rabble-Rousing was born.
My tagline? Rambunctious reviews, rants and ramblings.
From my recent posts, you should be able to see if I’ve got the description right. If you agree (or especially if you disagree), let me know.
Let’s raise some hell 🙂
