My name is Chris Baker, I’m the music and entertainment writer for Syracuse.com and the Post Standard. I hate Oxford commas because they’re unnecessary, they’re redundant, and they’re redundant. MusiCuse began as a sounding board for thoughts on the Syracuse music scene, but has evolved into a collection of essays on media, politics and the arts, and how they relate to our everyday lives. The views and opinions represented on this site are mine and mine alone.

Feel free to feed my ego by following me on Twitter. If you’d like to know more about me or yell at me in private, I can be reached via email. Thanks for visiting.
