A guy who lives in the San Francisco Bay Area. I've edited Wikipedia on and off since about 2007, when I was in high school. Most of my work so far has been about music I like—or liked in high school, at least—but I've expanded my frontiers a little bit since then, notably branching out to write about a major environmental disaster and a Weird Twitter account or two. My username is an anagram of my first and last name, and now I'm stuck with it (even though I think it's a bit goofy now)—I'd prefer to go by BLZ on here and I sign my posts with that acronym.

I recently put together a list of music/film books I own to give a general idea of my interests. Feel free to ask me about any of my books if there's a topic area you're interested in writing about. I also have access to Rock's Backpages and JSTOR (through the great Wikipedia Library Program), Westlaw (which also has a huge database of old news stories kinda like, plus a San Francisco Public Library card.

today and tonight
Thank you for quality articles such as Slay Tracks (1933–1969) and Smashing Pumpkins songs Today and Tonight, for a pure user page mentioning only articles, quality and people, for recognizing notability and bringing an article "up to such high quality before nominating ... where no further work ... was required to meet the criteria", - you are an awesome Wikipedian!
