1 Years of Outer Space Gamelan, or 50,000+ Page Views Can't Be Wrong...Can They?

Especially since a good 75% of those page views are just me.
It was actually yesterday that this blog turned 1, but I only realized it today. Indeed, on May 16, 2006, I posted an embryonic review of Merzbow's "Turmeric" that I never went back and re-touched. 221 posts later (equalling roughly 250 reviews - that's it?!) I still haven't gotten tired of writing, though I'm sure some of you have gotten tired of reading. Nevertheless, a heartfelt thank you to anybody who reads this, or posts comments, or writes emails, or sends in things to be written about, or puts a link to it on their blog, or tells someone else about it. My updating schedule has been pretty spotty lately but regular daily posts should resume next week for good...I hope. Anyway I'll be back to post something tomorrow, but I'll have you know Monday is a holiday in Canadaland so I'll also be enjoying the long weekend. Sit tight till then, and again, thanks.
I can't explain the album cover I used up there for this post. It just felt right.

i just stumbled across your blog a few months ago, i don't even remember what it was in reference to but ever since that night i bookmarked it and have come back daily as well. We enjoy lots of the same stuff so it's always good to hear your take on things, plus your reviews have steered me towards some cool shit that i might have missed otherwise. here's to another year reviewing records.
