I blogged every day in September, which is pretty remarkable considering that in seven years of blogging the only other month I posted every day was last November, during NaBloPoMo … and then my honor was at stake!
September’s major feature was a retrospective series of my favorite recordings from Trio Seasons 1-4. Each of the sixteen songs I featured was remastered from their prior Real Audio format and presented as 192kbs mp3s. In the process, I also uploaded remastered mp3 versions of the entirety of Trio Season 1. Further remastered seasons will follow in the coming months.
My Trio flashback only accounted for half of my posts, so what else did I spend every day blogging about? Eloquent cab drivers. Why a link is often not enough. Imagining myself as Britney’s image consultant. An epiphany. Why I don’t like Heroes. A brand new version of “Standing“. My birthday, and the path to Arcati Crisis‘s debut at the Tin Angel. Six consecutive happy hours. Other stuff, too.
I also read and linked to a slew of great blogs, including perennial favorites like Coolfer, Kottke, Largehearted Boy, Make You Go Hmm, and Scott Andrew; more recent fixations including Confessions of a Pioneer Woman, Debbi Millman, Ethicurean, Fresh Arrival, Harvard Avenue, MLarson, Schnozzfest, Telescreen, What If No One’s Watching, and You’re Doing It Wrong; and new finds such as Akkam’s Razor, A Brief Message, Communication Nation, A Girl About Philly, Shorpy, Smogr, Some Velvet Blog, Unclutterer, and The Yellow Stereo.
As always, I appreciate your attentive eyes and ears; I hope you plan to stick with me through October.
