To Whom It May Concern...

Hey Devoted Readers/Random Stumble-Upon-ers/Casual Skimmers:

Obviously, I haven't lived up to my word about getting this blog up and running again. There are a couple of reasons for this:

1) My job: Work as the editor of The Daily Nexus's Artsweek section means I have a lot of writing to do. In addition to my regular courseload. And my other job slinging espresso doesn't help. But, this means if you have a CD you're trying to promote, or a film, or what have you, I would totally love to include it in the paper. It's a daily circulation of 20,000 here at UC Santa Barbara, which is much ridiculously bigger than my average readership here at MLGF, at peak.

2) I've been listening to a lot of older stuff lately, moreso than new music. The last couple of months have been a delicious smorgasboard of Elvis Costello, Buzzcocks, Television Personalities, the JAMC, the Field Mice, blah blah blah.

3) Internet connection difficulties. GAH!!!

But anyway, I want to get this going again! It's been too, too long. In the meantime, feel free to keep sending me albums to review. If they don't end up posted here, they'll definitely be considered for review in the newspaper. And we're trying to get the Nexus website to be more interactive. Maybe get a blog running connected to that site, or something. Check back here soon. Something is stirring! E-mail me if you're interested in submitting stuff. I've got a new address. Or you can check the paper's mailing address by visiting the newspaper's website.

Thanks, guys!
