The few of you who follow me may or may not be aware that, until very recently, I “moonlighted” as a contributing reviewer for Sputnikmusic, which used to be a fantastic user based resource for discovering new music and gaining a better viewpoint on more popular stuff, but has since devolved into a moderately useful resource for new music, news, and opinions cluttered with an increasingly ridiculous user base that does basically nothing but attempt to one up everybody else and win internet points (if such things really exist). So, to fulfill my need for vomiting my opinions on music but avoid the general idiocy of said userbase (and since most of the people I regularly communicate with from Sputnik either follow me here or interact with me on Fakebook) I’m going to slowly start phasing this into what will probably amount to just another nearly exclusively music based blog that will feature nothing but bitching and moaning about the current state of music. JUST WHAT THE WORLD NEEDS! Basically what this means is the ratio of funny pictures of cats/adventure time related posts to music related posts will start to shift, and I will probably post more often. Hooray!
PS: I still encourage people to use Sputnikmusic as a resource, just be wary of the increasing number of trolls, though it’s nowhere near as bad as punknews or pitchfork…yet.
We get it, Paris was depressing in the early 1800s. Six full pages of describing this middle-aged widow’s house is not 100% necessary to frame your narrative. You could have stopped four pages ago at the “emaciated fruit tree” bit.
