About this Blog

Welcome to Martin’s Musings!

This blog began on September 1, 2005. On that day, and in that first blog post, I didn’t know what I’d be writing about, I just knew I needed an outlet to express myself:

Could be long, rambling entries like this one. Could be reviews of movies or TV shows, comments on albums I buy, rants about things and people I don’t like. Could be short, one-line entries, or they could just be a photo. Maybe I’ll need a gift idea and I’ll put that out to y’all for some suggestions.

That’s pretty much what the blog was — a whole lot of random stuff.

Flash-forward to today, add social media to my mix, and it’s on Martin’s Musings that you’ll find my longer-form thoughts on movies I’ve seen, music I’m listening to, marketing topics that interest me, TV shows I’m watching, places I’m traveling to, random things that annoy or fascinate me, and so much more. Things that can’t fit into a 140-character tweet or a short Facebook update.

Martin’s Musings remains an outlet for me to express myself. It’s a personal blog, not a professional one.

I don’t blog for money. I blog because I want to write.

And I don’t blog every day. I blog when I have something to say.

On that note … Since there’s a bit of unpredictability to when and what I’ll write, make sure you don’t miss anything. If you’re interested in what I have to say, subscribe to the blog by entering your email address in the upper right-hand corner of the screen.

    Hey Martin,

    I really like reading your blog, particularly your Oscar pieces. I have a question that’s been bothering me for a long time, but only recently popped back into my head. In 2007, Jonny Greenwood’s score for There Will Be Blood was deemed ineligible for competition because it featured a track previously recorded, thus not making it an “Original score”, which I understood. Fast forward 4 years and Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross win the Oscar for Original score for The Social Network, despite having In The Hall of the Mountain King as a track on it. Can you shed some light on this as to why that was allowed?
