I know it’s for sad reasons. But thanks.
Most views and visitors since the start of the year!
Awright awright. Back on it after rage outburst. Found out I made a single twitchy-finger error that caused all the problems. Even found out something similar made my NY Times log-ins a pain. Just the sort of tiny-problem annoyance that makes life more jagged now. Imagine 40 years ago it was a serious problem if you didn’t sign your name exactly the same way alla time.
All this reset-your-password stuff seemed reasonable until it went ba-na-nas. I got a new password and then that wasn’t right and after adjustments that wasn’t’ right and so screw it. I have an online presence without social media. Which I gather is kinda the current cool thing, so I’m there — like usual.
This message cannot be stated often or loud enough. Never have I gotten so much scattershot information (especially about music) that is irrelevant to what I do or like. Never have I felt that I’m missing out on so much of what I do like or need to know.
Third year of decline in overall visitors and views of the Miles To Go blog (I do still regard the Donna Douglas blowup as distorting). Maybe it’s the decline of blogs as cool new things, or I’m not as fanatic about posting (2017 not as full of disasters as 2016, but this fall and winter have been hit by a couple terrible personal events — not to me), or that I never do nothin’ to make anything viral.
Whatever, I’ve become a quality over quantity poster and am pleased to note that one of the type of posts that jumped up this year is “The Air Is Still and the Light Is Cool,” which are recommendations of less-well-known albums from the past that I adore.
Got one coming up tomorrow, I think.
Why is Fuck Buddy Rich such a popular post? Aside from the eternal appropriates of its sentiment.
