Let’s Rewrite History

The 365 challenge? What was that?

I dumped the idea. Bands don’t send me CDs to be mentioned as one of 365. They want my opinions of the release, something they can quote in their press section. Most of the pieces were half way to a review anyway (and have now been turned into such). I did enjoy being able to talk about some of my long time favourites so I may figure out a way to continue doing that.

I also found that I can write nearly an entry a day. If I can just write a review every day or two then maybe I can keep on top of the review pile a bit better than I have been doing. Of course reviews may not be as considered as say the Tom Leach one which, although fairly short, took about 150 song listens (LastFM undercounts by the way).

  2. Hi Daniel.

    I actually had the luxury of a night off last night (the internet conection kept dropping) and it was a bit of a relief. Two reviews tonight (Don’s Mobile Barbers and another Blogdritic one), a number of past 365 entries converted to reviews.

    And always in my thoughts: Karma Pilot. You have always made music that I need to listen to a lot before I can write an opinion (partly because it isn’t what I normally listen to). I think to do Summer 1999 justice I would need a few years of listening.
