7 readers left to 5,000!! Be 5,000, get a hug from me.

And sometime in the next week or 2, we will have a new logo and a new look to the site, which, if all works out, will look very cool indeed.

Submit yo' essays!!

and yes, Jeff's essay on Get Lonely really opens up the album, though I have to say his essay on WSABH took that LP to a different level for me.

Hey, so there is kind of a new format now to SYC. I'm still playing with it, so any comments, recommendations on how it looks, whether you like the new title and logo, etc., would be more than welcome. Also, with this format, I think the cover and DIY video section is a little more visible, and I'd like to try to populate that some more. So, other than essays, if you have a good cover that you did, or a DIY video of an MG's song, please submit it. Would love to see what you have to offer.

Grazie.

ps. edited to add: if there are any computer geeks who can match the background color of the bird logo and the new SYC title to the new kinda mustardy background, I'd really be grateful if you'd let me know. this whole interwebs things has maxxed out my intellect long ago.

Have you got larger versions of the bird/SYC images? Though they might stand out better as they are in any case.

just read the Get Lonely review and i'm so fucking happy that i finally have somewhere to point all the stupid naysayers to show them how wrong they are about that album

fever, that was yours right? thank you thank you for writing about it so beautifully. [/quote]

Aw, thank you, sir. I'm a bit overwhelmed by the positive response to those two SYC pieces, especially considering how drunk I had to get to write them. Easily the most personal music writing I've done.

We belong dead.

loving the new look btw!

WC, any reason you chose Blogger to post the essays and not Wordpress? I'm just wondering because in my experience Wordpress is a lot more customizable.

The site looks great! Reading a couple essays I missed, all brilliant. I may be working on a tMG essay for [url=http://pcasacas.org/]a conference on pop culture[/url] in the next couple of months, so that's a possibility.

hey, i didn't see this before. i don't know why i used blogger. it's just what i knew. i have been a little frustrated with its customizability, if that's a word.
