Time for an introduction to those who are wondering who the hell runs this blog and why doesn’t this person follow back. Home base is a meta love story. When John encouraged us to try out this mode of communication, I had high hopes that he isn’t some hyper-narcissistic dude (he’s no such thing) who might appreciate learning what some of his fans are thinking about when our minds aren’t on him (rare I know). Balancing this with the drive to learn about his career as a musician, I chose to make a separate Tumblr to archive what might be some of his best moments. More analytical discourse regarding what he says or does is scattered throughout my home base.
Regarding following…what I’ve seen from many of the JM fam is a high frequency of posting on a day to day basis, much of which is John related. I love him as much as you all but also found Tumblr to be useful in tracking current events and a whole slew of topics that have been of interest for years but that aren’t a common thread with the people I interact with on a day to day basis. Sustainability, philosophy and history of religion, documentary films about these topics along with our current financial mess. Then there is the landscape photography. I love all of this and have precious little time to spend on Tumblr with a full time job so hopefully you can understand. What I would like to do is show everyone I follow on this blog so that you all can connect. We are a work in progress.
Some of you might know that this moment at the United Center a year ago including Stop This Train blended with of all songs, Homeward Bound changed everything.
