About TDoL

Welcome. You’ve unearthed The Days of Lore, a website based in Portland, Oregon, operated by writer, editor and journalist Mark Lore. It’s a repository for his half-witted opinions on music, culture, life, and everything in between. There’s a little something here for everyone, although he’ll probably just talk about his records a lot.

The Days of Lore started as a column in a northern California alt-weekly back in 2005, and became a music-focused blog a few years later. TDoL‘s untimely demise in 2015 coincided with the author becoming a full-time father and putting on 30 pounds–give or take 10. But he’s not dead yet.
