We’ve grown a lot as a blog in the past nine months or so. We’re averaging around 1000 hits per day now, and we’re thankful to all of you who come here to read whatever we churn out – whether that was from Day 1 or you just found us this past week. Because of the growth we’ve seen, we’re making the move to our own site – one that’s not hosted on WordPress. Everything is set up for the most part, but we need to get into the nuts and bolts of the posts – moving links, etc.
In order to do that, we’re going to cease posting for this week (September 27-October 4) so that we can focus on making sure everything is up and running at the new site – which will be located at http://tympanogram.com/ if you couldn’t guess. If you go there now, there’s just a boring page letting you know that we will be there.
So, with that said, we’ve got some work to do. Thank you for visiting as frequently as you all do, and we look forward to seeing you all over at the new digs. Update your feeds, bookmarks, etc. Tell your friends. We’re looking forward to seeing you on October 5 over at the new place.
Andy and Dave
p.s. If you really wanted to know what to get this week, we recommend The Avett Brothers’ new album – I and Love and You. There’s not much else that piques our interest. For good measure, here’s a track for you:
The Avett Brothers – Will You Return? (mp3) from Emotionalism
Dave and I have been slacking on trying to get face time with bands coming to the Rochester area. Over the next month, however, there is a spate of good concerts coming, so we’re going to try our best to talk to at least one of the bands. Here’s what we’re going to try and get ourselves to, although we can’t make promises.
June 13 – Blind Pilot & Local Natives
June 14 – The Avett Brothers
June 17 – Passion Pit
Anyone else in the Buffalo/Rochester/Syracuse area we’re missing? That’s a particularly busy long weekend.
Passion Pit – Little Secrets (mp3) from Manners
Local Natives – Airplanes (mp3)
Thanks to Elisabeth Kubler-Ross, we all have the ability to pinpoint exactly how far along we are in the grieving process when we experience a catastrophic loss in our life. With today being Friday the 13th, and also the Day Before Valentine’s Day, we’re going to examine the 5 Stages of Break-Up Grief through the majesty of song. We’ll be in better moods tomorrow considering we both have significant others, but if you have been made recently single, this post is for you.
