Side Ponytail is a pop blog that dates to 9/9/09. I’m not one for manifestos and I blog mainly for myself, so this isn’t much of a mission statement. I blog about music that I like, mostly indie rock and pop, and occasionally add in a smattering of cultural criticism (though that’s not always so well received, as I’ve found.)
I’m a 23 year old working in higher education administration. I’m partial to 7”s, mystery novels, and TV shows set in imaginary high schools in California. Longtime favorite albums include: You Think It’s Like This But Really It’s Like This (Mirah), Go Sailor (Go Sailor), Exile in Guyville (Liz Phair), Personal Best (Team Dresch), and Bee Thousand (Guided By Voices.)
I do accept music for review, but very often neglect to write about things that people send to me (unless they strike me as something really special.) Please don’t be offended if you send me something and I don’t write about it.
