what have i become?

i've noticed that this site is (perhaps subconsciously) veering towards audioblog or mp3-blog territory, which is fine with me. i'm not a critic or a music journalist, but i know what i like and sometimes i can coherently explain why i like it. i've always loved music and my tastes have changed and expanded, especially in the last ten years or so (note the country music appreciation, mentioned earlier this month).

in the past, i've used this forum (and the old "personal status" page on my website) as a way to clear my head and air out a few grievances
(i think the disclaimer i used to have said something like "i type this crap out so i won't have to purchase an automatic weapon and plan a trip to a crowded shopping mall") because i was practically the only person who read it. i know i don't have thousands of hits a day, and that's not something i'm really looking for, but it's clear that i'm not alone here anymore. therefore, i'll probably try to cut the shit out because i'm not a whiner or a hater (well, at least i try not to be) and nobody wants to see my dirty laundry.

the point i'm trying to make is that any mp3s i post will likely be through yousendit.com links. those are available for seven (7) days or a finite number of downloads (i think it's twenty or twenty-five)(don't you hate these goddamn parenthetical asides?). i'm just posting random (generally independent) shit that i like, so if you like it as well, why not take a chance and purchase the disc. i guess that's it.

peace,
jamie ^_^

Hey, it's your blog, you should be able to put down what you like. A bit of catharsis in between the tunes is fine.

If I read about some bloke in SF going postal with an automatic weapon in a local independant record store I'd feel guilty! ;-)
