My blog has been selected as a Featured Typepad Blog, which means that there will be many people clicking on this site for the first time, exclaiming "Ew! Classical music?!," and clicking away. I am not the famous comic-book Alex Ross, nor am I the dead Scots golfer. Here is an article that says what I'm more or less about as a writer, here is some stuff on rock/pop, here are some fine, fine music blogs, and here is a list of recordings that might make a good introduction to "classical music," which I have decided to rename Awesome Music.
