For me, TV soundtracks and commercials have replaced radio as one of the places to find cool new songs. I have several shows for which I regularly have auto-Shazam fired up.
Last night, we watched the season premiere of Shameless. That show always has interesting music. I got four new artists from watching and listening to one hour of TV. Good deal.
All along, all I’ve really wanted to be is a writer. So now I tell people that’s what I am, even though I haven’t earned a dime being a writer.
That being said, I’ll confess that once a day, every day, I wish I was still a musician. That was the one time in my life when I was cool.
