Just a few more days until the 10th anniversary of A Year of Songs

The countdown to a full decade of impromptu, often terminally sloppy, mostly acoustic versions of the 165 or so songs I’ll let go out in public continues. Another teaser vid…

PS… If things feel a bit more sprightly, pages seem to load a log faster, they should. I optimized some code and got a surprising improvement in performance. This is what happens when the mechanic finally stops neglecting his own jalopy.


Countdown to the never-before, never-again AYoS 10 Year Anniverery

Nine days from now, on the 2015 Autumnal Equinox, Wednesday, September 23, A Year of Songs will be 10 years old.

After over 400 posts that included 300 songs — that were downloaded over a half million times from — I admit, I had let the pace slack. OK, I put a landing page randomizer on it so people would see something different every time they visited and pretended that was close enough for blogland.

But, of course… the caged bird must sing. If you can call it singing…



In addition to writing songs, I also massacre classics…

Ten days from now, on the 2015 Autumnal Equinox, Wednesday, September 23,* A Year of Songs will be 10 years old.

We don’t want to give away too much, but let’s just say that we’ll** be cranking out new content, both music and microfiction, and doing a massive overhaul of the site to make it more streamlined. (In other words, we want it to work better on the stunted little mobile devices most of us now use to view the web.)

More details in coming days.


* Specifically the Fall Equinox will occur at 1:22 a.m. PDT here in coastal California.

** We habitually use the ‘royal’ we. We know it’s lame. We can’t help ourselves. Maybe we’ll try to quit in the next ten days… We’ll just have to see. Frankly, we’re not sanguine about our chances on that. Safety in imaginary numbers.
