Ross M: Conceptually Gross DJ Profile

Well, I'm 44 years old.  So there's that.  My first favorite band was Men At Work.  I grew up in the bay area in the 80's so from an early age I got into metal but in my early 20's I turned more to indie rock (Superchunk, Dinosaur Jr, etc).  Since then I have dabbled in as many genres as I could find.  I used to read the All Music Guide like the bible.  In the last few years I've really come back around to my metal roots and generally am listening to mostly heavy music. 
I am completely untrained and un-schooled.  I have written for a few online blogs and I would describe my writting style as wildly tangential.  But I write reviews and such from a very personal perspective and as I'd want to read others.  There are plenty of blogs out there so I always felt like I'd rather be casual and funny rather than overly scholarly.  Music is fun, man.
