For the benefit of my unauthorized biographer

I don’t know if there’s any reader demand for more information about who I am, but during my years on LJ I’ve thrown some biographical info and similar stuff up here. There’s my profile, of course, but I was interested in a list of posts where I shared more details, so here it is:

There’s also my SAQ tag. SAQ stands for “Seldom Asked Questions.” I may come up with an FAQ someday, but it’ll probably be all questions about my beard. SAQ is more interesting, longer pieces about my past. Well, I hope they’re more interesting; they are for sure longer, though.


About songdogmi

I'm a longhaired almost-hippie stuck in the inner suburbs of a major rust-belt metropolis who's thoughtful, creative, and kind of geeky. In exchange for a paycheck I run around in a cubicle maze most days. When I escape, I play music, hang out in coffee houses, dink around on the computer, take naps, and think I should be off in the woods somewhere. Every once in a while I get in my car and drive far, far away, though I've always come back so far.

    No Beatles, Pink Floyd, Yes, Jethro Tull, Yardbirds, Renaissance, or Who albums on that list? 😉

    I don’t mind turning gray, either, as I was often called “Babyface” in high school.
    I like that it makes me look older.

    I like driving in snowfalls, too-it’s kind of magical!

    I think the oldest car I’ve ever ridden in was a 1950’s Rolls Royce.

    I’d love to go for a ride in a 1934 Duesenberg, though!

      I was 8 when the Beatles broke up, and my parents didn’t play pop music on the radio much, so I didn’t hear them much. Of course I couldn’t escape them when I did control my own radio, but it’s like all of their songs are kind of soaked into my brain. I don’t think any one Beatles album changed my life, though I believe Sgt. Pepper is the best rock album, period.

      The others you mentioned were never bands I liked much at all. Bands from the late 60s to early 80s I did like included the Moody Blues, the Eagles, Dire Straits, Electric Light Orchestra, Supertramp, Bob Seger & the Silver Bullet Band, Fleetwood Mac, and Lynyrd Skynyrd.

        I like ALL those groups, especially The Moody Blues!

        Everything they made from DAYS OF FUTURE PASSED to SEVENTH SOJOURN was incredible!

      • songdogmi says:

        Those are the best Moodies albums. But then you get to the end of Seventh Sojourn and the song “I’m Just a Singer in a Rock and Roll Band” and that’s where you realize everything’s gonna change from there on out. The later albums are good, but they’re different.

      • maxauburn says:

        I didn’t care as much for their sound after SOJOURN, but am thankful for those 7 fantastic albums!

    Thanks for linking me to those … lots of fun to read. (And Medora, North Dakota … wow. 🙂

    Anyhow, I feel like a much better-equipped stalker, now. :-p
