Posting always slows down a bit in December – family stuff and weather-induced lethargy – but it has slowed down a bit more than usual owing to various off-site blogging activities. Here are a few of the things I’ve been doing when I haven’t been doing things here.
- Contributing to the ongoing Top 100 Albums of the Decade countdown (now entering the Top 20!) over at The 9513. It’s a great read overall, and there are two more blurbs from me in each of the remaining installments, so go get caught up now if you’ve somehow managed to miss it.
- Obsessively tracking the Top 100 Albums of the Decade countdown at Country Universe, bristling at every mention of Underwood and the Flatts. Just kidding (sorta). Great read so far, gang.
- Behind-the-scenes work on other upcoming The 9513 stuff.
- Contributing to The Bird List, whose purpose will become clear in, oh, the next week or so.
- Writing my first ever song parody for Farce the Music, a spoof of “Family Tradition.” Not sure if the end result is any good, but the process gave me a whole new respect for what Trailer does.
- A few silly end-of-year lists and such for this site. Stay tuned!
