From Cincinnati outward, Midcoast is a blog collaboration from the heartland of our great country to its farthest shores.

I’ve grown weary of the people with t-shirts that say ‘music is my life-blood’ or something of that sentiment. Of course it is, I would quip if I were loose-lipped. I’m under the impression that, like sex, music is a requirement of sustaining a normal level of life and a sane one at that.
My name is Corey Bennett and music is my life-blood.
So are my friends, and some semblance of community I have out here in the Queen City.
Ignoring the sarcastic remark, I do believe in music and am a strong supporter of the local music scene here in Cincinnati. More on that later.
Moving on, I am college graduate in the ways of English Literature, though it by no means defines, or ends the idea of my being. I am part of a school of thought that wants to redefine this idea of being an English Major — I feel it more enlightening in relation to spirituality than a test of comprehension. That’s for another article.
Rather than state what I bring to midcoast, or the MC, or what-have-you, I would rather much post content – and renew my bio vowels then.
Through the lens of self-criticism, I am somebody who is good at many things, but never has honed any one, or set of things, and mastered them. It leaves me with unfinished drafts, scribbles and doodles, choruses without verses, or vice-versa. I want to be a musician, a writer, an actor, a summer camp counselor; I want to be all of these things at once, and until I become one or all of them, I remain a serious wanna-be, not a poser in today’s youth slanders, but a dreamer stuck in the dream.
Let midcoast be something of a breaking out of sorts in relation to the dream. I’ve always wanted to do something with these brilliant minds I share this page with. And now they are giving me a chance to do so. I thank you guys.
Teacher-man at University of Cincinnati (for now). Writer, horse enthusiast, etc. I like food, movies, books, music, art (you know the type).
Midcoast is the place where I’m forced to focus on the fleeting ideas in my head long enough to write something cohesive. It’s a way to keep me from forgetting in a venue where 6-10 beautiful people will see it.
Cook, drink, repeat. I am a cook, and cooking is what I do for a living, also. I have an ego that is completely unearned and blown completely out of proportion. I have been described by enthusiastic drunk people as “a really funny guy.” If something bad happens in my life, but I think that it’s funny, I won’t care. One day eventually, I’m going to write a thorough essay about what it is like to be addicted to alcohol, and it will probably be really depressing. I’m really into the song Sentimental by Porcupine Tree right now.
