There are over 2300 reviews and 200 podcasts in the archive, so get to reading (and listening)!

An End of Sorts

This is probably going to come as a big surprise to most readers, but as of the end of the 2008 calendar year, I'm going to quit updating this site.

I've been writing reviews here for over 10 years now, and although I still largely enjoy doing it, I need to move in a slightly different direction.

Essentially, I'm going to be moving shop over to my shinier, new site Something Excellent (http://www.somethingexcellent.com/) and only writing about things that I really enjoy. Comments will be open for every post and I'll plan on updating every week (and maybe more). To help drive traffic there, I've posted my year-end mixes on that site instead... :)

This site and the entire archive of reviews and podcasts will stay up here indefinitely. I'm very proud of them and lots of people still stumble onto the site via search engines, so hopefully they'll still be a resource for some time.

I've posted my favorite albums for the year list (on the lists page) and will again be taking reader submissions for theirs as well (see readers list linked from the same page).

As always, thanks for reading. If you want to read a longer post I wrote about this site (or write me an epitaph), go here:

Also, please stop by my new site. I think it will be fun.

The update schedule

Just a couple podcast reviews to close out things out this week...

I'll be posting year-end lists and other stuff before the year comes to a close.

Things winding down...

I'll try this again. Feel free to talk about anything and everything and hopefully the spam doesn't get out of control again. Only 4 weeks left for 2008!
