I wanted to take a minute to wish everyone a safe New Year’s Eve tonight. I hope everyone has a fun evening. If you’d like to join the community as the clock strikes twelve, our forums are the place to be.
Thank you to everyone that visited this website over the past year. Here’s to 2020.
I just wanted to take a moment to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and happy holidays. I hope everyone is having a wonderful day and enjoying some good food and drinks. We will be on a more relaxed posting schedule over the next few days, as the music industry is basically in hibernation right now. All of us are working on finalizing our best of the year lists and we’ll have those to share with you the week of January 6th.
I know the holidays can also be a difficult time for many, just know that our community is here for you and there’s a bunch of resources online if you need someone to talk to.
Sergio Anello of The Early November has shared the holiday song “Santa, For What It’s Worth” on Soundcloud.

Kacey Musgraves’s Christmas special is now up on streaming services and available to stream on Amazon Prime.
Today is Thanksgiving here in the states so we will be on a much relaxed posting schedule today. I hope everyone has a wonderful day and you get to stuff your face with your favorite foods.
Today is the 4th of July holiday so we will be on a more relaxed posting schedule. I hope everyone has a safe and enjoyable day and we’ll be back to our regular schedule when we release our “Best of 2019 (So Far)” feature with all of our mid-year best of lists tomorrow.
I’ll be spending some time with the friends and doing a little bbq and baseball watching.

Today is Martin Luther King Jr. day, and I recommend really reading what he wrote and talked about:
My friends, I must say to you that we have not made a single gain in civil rights without determined legal and nonviolent pressure. Lamentably, it is an historical fact that privileged groups seldom give up their privileges voluntarily. Individuals may see the moral light and voluntarily give up their unjust posture; but, as Reinhold Niebuhr has reminded us, groups tend to be more immoral than individuals.
We know through painful experience that freedom is never voluntarily given by the oppressor; it must be demanded by the oppressed. Frankly, I have yet to engage in a direct action campaign that was “well timed” in the view of those who have not suffered unduly from the disease of segregation. For years now I have heard the word “Wait!” It rings in the ear of every Negro with piercing familiarity. This “Wait” has almost always meant “Never.” We must come to see, with one of our distinguished jurists, that “justice too long delayed is justice denied.”

Thank you to everyone that visited this website over the past year. We’re hard at work on our year end lists recapping 2018, and are aiming to publish them early next week. Here’s to 2019.
