ROCKthusiast Does #MWE for AJoMT (Day 28)

Before anyone starts asking “#MWE, WTF?”, the hashtag stands for Music Writing Exercise, and is the brainchild of Gary Suarez, freelancer about the Internet who hatched this idea five years ago.

As a way of improving one’s writing and expanding musical horizons at the same time, the premise is simply to listen an album you have never heard before every single day in February, and tweet about it.

Like Homer Simpson said that time he tried to give his sailor talk the old heave-ho as put forward by his stupid sexy neighbour Ned Flanders, self-improvement has always been a passion of mine, so I. Am. Game!

For the next 28 days I will update this article with all my #MWE tweets for posterity. Would love to know what Alan’s readers think of my choices in the comments below, if you have any suggestions of what to stream and see me review (open for absolutely anything), or if anyone else is taking this challenge. Here goes nothing!

About the Author

Gilles LeBlanc literally fell into “alternative rock” wayyy back at Lollapalooza 1992, where he got caught in his first mosh pit watching some band named Pearl Jam. Since then, he’s spent the better part of his life looking for music to match the liberating rush he felt that day, with a particular chest-beating emphasis on stuff coming out of his native Canada. It took him awhile, but Gilles now writes feverishly about all things that rock (and or roll) through his ROCKthusiast alter ego.
