In which The DurAnorak, writer of reviews both glittering and scathing, lover of music both alternative and mainstream, enthusiast of bands both old and new, gives herself somewhere to write as much as she likes about music, and gives you wonderful people something else to read. The main journal is at duranorak - only music here.
Goodness knows I'll have enough to write here anyway, because I am never without some form of musical something to squeak or rage about, but if there's anything you'd like to see me write about, do drop me a comment or an e-mail or something. I'll review anything you like, hunt down anything you want if I can, answer any questions you have, whatever.
I don't know as much music as Pandora, but I do operate free outside the US. :)
Incidentally, and for the purposes, mostly, of showing off like nobody's business, I keep a (still not quite complete) list of my music collection here if you're curious.
