On Why I Chose Music Criticism over Movie and Sports Writing

I love to write about the things I’m passionate about, not the things I know barely anything about.

My whole life sports never really did it for me as I never did well at sports when I was younger, and some of the people who bullied me were the “jock” types. I’m glad sports culture as a whole can give people a greater sense of unity and belonging though.

Speaking of people that seek belonging, as a video gamer and comic book fan my expectations have constantly been betrayed by the money hungry story butchering giant known as Hollywood. The Resident Evil films were unfaithful to the game (as are most video game based movies). However, I will say comic book.movies have gotten much better.

I will always love basketball and a great Simon Pegg comedy, but I will be the guy making sarcastic commentaries on the Billboard Top 100 songs as those songs are never repetitive and totally have great lyrical depth to their meaning.
