Skip down a bit if you want to just hit up the reflections portion of the post.
I was originally going to go with Starship's song "Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now", but after much deliberation I realized something. Firstly, I really strongly dislike 80s Pop. Secondly, the song is much more suited for my S post for next year, yeah? But mostly because theme wise, this song kinda fits my blog's feel more, ya dig?
The song has a really bouncy beat to it that really just pulled me in right from the "Y'all can't f*ck with us" line. It set the tone of the song straight out the gate and from there on out it just grooved right through the rest of it. As per usual, Krizz manages to nail his flow as usual. A steady feature in a lot of Tech's songs you pretty much know what you're getting from him.
As I've said for the last couple years, as a daily blog already the A to Z isn't as big an issue for me as it would be for a bi-weekly or monthly blogger. The hardest part of the month continues to be freaking Q and X honestly. The first year I did albums and out of the 6 albums I found that begin with the letter X, 2 of them belong to Mushroomhead. That's straight up ridiculous honestly.
But honestly my favorite part of this is that people actually will visit and comment on my blog. Due to not budgeting my time too well I don't really comment on too many blogs. I said I'd be better last year, but apparently I lied. Maybe next year, right?
This brings me to the List. If you participated the A to Z this year you'll know that the facilitators decided to axe the list from years past since it was really hard to keep up with on their end from a maintenance standpoint. That made a lot of sense to me, and while I was sad I wasn't gonna be able to cash in on those free page views that I was getting before it's not like I can blame anybody but myself on that front.
Dude, some of those guys got way more annoyed than they needed to. It reminded me of people who ask an artist to paint them something. When they get quoted a price and the first thing they shoot back with is "It can't really be that hard, that's ridiculous. Can't you do it for *less* amount?" That's what everybody who was talking about how the list couldn't be that hard to maintain sounded to me. They never had to monitor 1000+ blogs to make sure the ones who weren't active were removed from the list, so they don't get a vote.
Honestly this turned out great. I noticed a lot of comments when I actually was active on other people's blogs, I almost managed to get my name out a little, and some people found me cause I got added to somebody's personal list. That was my favorite part honestly, I managed to get myself added on somebody's watch list. I'm curious to see how long that lasts since I don't exactly post music that is widely loved by the blogging community.
What kind of music do you punks like anyway? I keep hearing that what I post "isn't my scene" or "Just not my cup of tea", but only one person actually posted what they listen to. I love interactions where I get to talk about music, so gimme something to talk about, eh?
Heck, if you stick around as a reader and occasional commenter I'll even post music you'd like on purpose. That's a pretty dope offer, eh?
Happy A to Z guys, see a pile of you next year, and hopefully throughout this year.
