Or will I hate myself intolerably for doing so?
It's your posts in here I can't stand!!!!!!!111!!!!!!!
and think you really will update it regularly.
I started a third one yesterday... I could berate myself for throwing more useless information at the internet that three people will read, but I felt like writing, so I don't care.
who the fuck do they think reads them? Who's interested in the opinion of some completely random person on whatever CD's they just bought? I DON'T UNDERSTAND
sometimes I email radio DJs and say "Hey, check out this band!", and they usually will before going on to play them on their show. Then they'll send me an email back saying "Thanks for the recommendation! Don't be shy to send any more my way!" or something like that. Except I am shy, and as much as I love my favourite small bands getting the exposure they need and deserve, I feel a bit uncomfortable turning myself into a vigilante publicist for them. If I had a blog which I updated regularly, that problem would be circumvented. It would still be lame, but at least I wouldn't feel that way every time I wrote an entry.
but don't want competition. Do it?
It's marginally more fulfilling than posting on here and only about three people will read it anyway. I don't hate myself for doing it but I suppose you might if self loathing is your bag, I dunno if it is.
Nah, I think enough people know about The Ting Tings as it is.
do it !
Go on then
As long as its a cover for your communist preachings
You red bastard
Its good fun for the first year or so of doing music reviews and writing in mine and various friends experience. But the moment you feel the need to HAVE to start doing things like this, the enthusiasm will wear off and you'll go off of music listening for a while.
Well, that's what me and a few of my mates found. Maybe you're different...
I don't plan to anyway. I'm just planning to post links to MySpaces and stuff, maybe with a brief description of each band.
that's dull. you write good. you should try to do some proper reviews and stuff, or just ramble a bit, like you do in your other blog, only about music
I doubt there'll be any reviews though. Too much efforrrrrt.
although i probably wouldn't read it, i don't really read any blogs
I like to read lots of blogs as I have to much time on my hands.
I really enjoy doing my ones, I just like talkin shit about music. Now I got this ace dubstep one on the go as well and I'm getting some super exciting fresh stuff through to talk about its a bit good.
felt pretty ill/lazy so didn't make it anywhere, sorry dude. wanna go see action beat tomorrow/today/tuesday?
DiS thing was pritty shit. Internet Forever were good though (y)

were ice sea dead people not good? they sounded really tight on myspace
so I did likewise. Wanted to see them but couldn't really be arsed with hanging around by myself.
We put them on in London on Friday - they are rad. Don Vito are probably supporting too - they're noisy.
