up the task at hand?

am i really a blogger? i've had some form of blog, on and off, since about 2001. let us discuss this. in 2001, i had just move to nyc. oh, my were full of light. sure he WTC had falling, barley a week before i moved in. it was surreal. to have watched it on tv, then to be there. to smell it. i would constantly go out. me with my then new digital camera. i still have the same camera be the way. though its on its death bed. at this time i started up the haphasard site "space-computer.com". as a document of me in nyc. blogs were not really around as we know them today. so everything had to be done by hand. the site had pictures, record reviews, interviews! writtings.. all kinds of useless stuff. it was fun to do, and seemed exciting. so much was going on, how could i not?
then, i finally started working. it was hard to find a job in the months right after the WTC thing. but, i finally did. i moved to queens, from brooklyn. and started my 9 to 9.. this left little time for space-computer. and the parting it required. it slowly fell off.. about this time. i would have extra free time on my hand in the middle of the day. early afternoon or so. a friend of mine. had recently moved to tokyo. and didn't have much to do. so we started to write for the record label abcdefg*records, out of nagoya. we attacked and analized pop music, and japanese indies. it was fun. but alot of work for my counterpart. as it was done in japanese. and i can't write, and, speak japanese. as with most things on the web. thats slowly faded, and finally stopped too. i can't remember so much, of what happened next. i'm sure there was some other failed attempt at a blog in there.. then one day. i got a demo cd from micro mach machine, and decided it was time to start my own record label. at this time usagi chang did not exsist. there was nothing, in my mind, to fill that void. i quickly added macdonald duck eclair to the bill. i was full of some kind of blissfull dillusion, that people still like vinly. and dammit, nothing is cooler then some tricked out 7". packaging i say! well, i'm getting off topic. so, with that, had to a website for said label. and, with that. i had a website blog.. but referred to as a "diary", ala japanese style blog. i actualy did this for over a year. but, it was pretty useless. i didn't really want to get into any subject, as i didn't want to alienate possible fans. i didn't feel it was my business to mix my views, and the labels. it was a lame duck blog. and now we get to this. i'm not sure if i'm up to the task. i'm not a writer, of words, never have been. but i feel some odd internet peer pressure to have one. i'm sure no one know's about this one yet. and, that might not change. i think i'll have to pick a subject.. and attack it head on. but what could it be? music is what i know.. but i already post record reviews here.. what to do.
