My first inclination was to use this introductory space to wax philosophical about change, the Midwestern and parental tendency to take care of others before self, why hobbies matter, the difficulties of file management in the digital age, failure, benign neglect, the relationship of lubricants to wheels that have audible friction, and of course the adjustment of expectations in the face of larger patterns repeated disappointment.
But I won’t. Instead I’ll be brief and offer a handful of unassailable facts:
-It has been a solid five months between mixes and as such there are rough patches.
-After six years I have retired the old intro to the show.
-My iPod had to be reset to blank and that carefully curated collection of songs is gone (also six years old).
-I’m working to digitize my entire CD collection and am about 80% done. This has caused me to hold off on almost every music related project (including rebuilding the iPod and conjuring a new intro).
-There is a theme to this show.
-My plan is to be back to a weekly show but I can’t guarantee that.
