If you’ve looked around on my site or check my Twitter and Facebook pages, you will have seen links to a very cool music blog called MusicNerdery.com. The website is the brainchild of Ericka Simone, whose love of music is expressed in the people she works with/for and the content on her website. However, not content with the things as is, she and MusicNerdery.com are about to take things to the next level beginning on the 1st of January, 2011.
If the URL isn’t a hint, allow me to explain. Ericka loves music, she geeks out in the same way Anthony Bourdain geeks out about finding a prime cut of his favorite meat. She gets nerdy because there’s a confidence in her work that comes from an understanding of the music she listens to, a willingness to listen to not only what’s there, but what may be hidden. Music Nerdery represents the music nerd in you and all of us, and she welcomes any and all to pay a visit. The website is active now, so head there, browse, and make it a part of your daily web surfing routine. Then follow her on Twitter at @MusicNerdery or @EmpressEricka.
Doing searches on Twitter can lead to some pretty interesting things, and for me it lead to the discovery of a blog by record collector, audiophile,and music fan Atane Ofiaja (@atane), who has his own website/blog called The Sophisticated Audiophile. He just started it in January, but on his about page he says his intent is to make it “a haven, and one stop junction for the intelligent audiophile. One that values fidelity and excellent sound reproduction in music.” For those who are new to records and turntables, this is a look at how you can enhance your listening experience with some of the best equipment out there, this would be a few steps higher from the norm.
You can find it by clicking to Atane.net.
Kanye West is letting people know he’s not just about the gift of gab or having good promotional people, but that he is a man of the world. He doesn’t mind sharing his views, so check it out over @ http://www.kanyeuniversecity.com/blog/.
