The last six months to a year have been an absolute blur of life and change. I met a terrific lady, lost my job, moved home, moved out to Colorado without a job, moved in with that terrific lady I mentioned before and, finally, got a new job. I am not someone who likes change and uncertainty, and yet that’s what the last while of my life has been, though now things are more certain and better than they’ve been in quite some time.
While music is still important to me, I don’t have the time and energy to dig through the endless amounts of not very good stuff every day to find that one song I believe in. Some days there’s not a lot of digging involved- someone just releases something awesome- but it’s seemed more and more like an obligation lately and less like something fun to do, which was the whole point of this blog to begin with. I suppose I’m very lucky that it took 3+ years for it to get to this point.
Anyhow, when I originally started the blog I had this grand idea that I could hunt down something every day to post, and for a good while I did. Then I started to only do things on weekdays (and maybe a post on the weekends), because, well because that’s just what felt like what I wanted to do.
So, where does that bring us? Well, where it brings us is here: I’m not at all interested in killing the site, but what I am going to do is switch to posting only on Monday’s (because Monday Links is one of my favorite things to put together) and when something catches my ear (I am still deaf in my left ear, that hasn’t changed) that I think you need to hear. Oh, and mixes. Those will still be here. There will be some weeks when maybe I’m posting every day, because the week is fruitful and your ears should be happy during those weeks. There may be some weeks where maybe it’s just Monday Links and that’s it, because sometimes the world is cruel. Who knows. What I’m hoping for is that this will lead to a) a site that is focused more on good songs and putting those good songs in the ears of the few people who stop by here every day and b) a happier life.
This was a whole lot of words for a change that really isn’t all that much of a change. If you like what’s posted here then there will still be those good types of things posted here, because good music deserves to be shared. And because I like you. Yep, you.
Thanks for sticking around here and all those things for the last 3+ years. I appreciate it more than I can say. I’ll be seeing you soon (just not today, cause I couldn’t find a song).
