In the good ole summertime
I turned in my grades a few days ago, which means the summer is here for me. I know, I know … the hard life of a teacher. I won’t even try to explain how much I actually will be working, just on a much more self-directed schedule than during the academic year.
Instead, let’s talk bidness: My goal this summer is to review an album a week. There’s a stack of cds head high on the floor of my office at home, so there’s no way I’ll get to all of them. But a weekly review seems like a decent way to ground the conversation over the summer in the core product and music we’re all interested in. If you’ve spent any time here at all, you know I approach reviewing a little more comprehensively than a lot of people. Reviews are a lot of work for me … listening and relistening, making up my mind, changing it, and then changing it back again for different reasons, and finally articulating myself more or less coherently (I hope).
So we’ll see how it goes. Let me know of you have particular requests. Timeliness of the release doesn’t matter much to me. In fact, I often prefer to review stuff that people have had time to listen to and think about.Email this Post
