So, somethings have been going on in the background recently. There is a new blog in the tsuibhne.net circle. It's not quite ready to go prime time yet, but I'll throw up a link when it is.
The new blog will feature a new writer, my friend Ali. Ali and I have been chatting back and forth for a couple of months now, and he was the prime source for a lot of the Islam stuff that's been posted recently. Because of this, I'm going to hold off on posting things, and instead leave it up to him. I've got high hopes for Ali's blog. I'm not kidding when I say this guy's got material coming out his ears. Originally, I was going to just post his stuff here, but quickly found myself buried underneath a ton of material, and I made the call to just give him the tools to do it himself.
This space is also going over a little change. You'll notice the change in look. I've finally got the stylesheet working, and I decided to take things back to the default. There's still a little more work that needs to be done, but this will probably be the general idea for the near future.
Content wise, hopefully things will pick up a little bit around here. I'm starting a new contract on the 22nd, and things are going to depend on how much that kicks my ass, but I do have some things in mind that I want to post about. Mostly, music. I've been eating up the catalog over at Tzadik Records. And I've got a feeling that I'm going to be equally taken with the selection at Eclipse Records, Improvised Music of Japan, and Sonore. There's probably also a few other labels I need to check out.
Yes, ladies and gentlemen, I have finally taken the plunge into out and out fucked up music, and I'm loving it. I still dig a good pop song, and acctually spent today listening to The Kingston Trio. And the Neil Diamond and Cat Stevens are still on my ipod. I'm just expanding things.
So, hopefully, in the near future, you'll see posts concerning Painkiller, Naked City, another Ruins album, a Ruins and Derek Bailey album, Improvised Music of Japan 2002-2003, and a few other things, that are still coming in the mail.
Oh, and tsuibhne.net is going to get a total over haul in the near future. Right down to it's purpose and function. I'll talk about that more though when it launches. I'm thinking about getting a new domain name for that project, we'll see though.Posted by Matt at September 11, 2003 11:48 PM
