You may ask yourself, what does any of this have to do with music critic Robert Christgau? Especially the metal writing. Truth be told, the relationship may be tangential; this blog does not stick to his particular taste set. But I share with the Dean many of the same philosophical ideals and approaches to writing and thinking about music, so the title remains appropriate.

Who am I? I am a former (reformed?) musicologist. I wrote about Christgau in my academic work, and plan to write about him some more here (eventually). In the meantime, here are some lists! Lots of lists. Too many lists.
