Every once in a while, we take the time out to thank our readers for coming here, and give you an update on what’s happening behind the scenes. So thanks, everybody, for stopping by. And thanks especially to the people who keep us in line by posting comments to the articles.
And we should also thank our message board community that’s growing larger and more vocal every day. It’s very cool for us to see people get involved in this, and we’re proud to be able to host so many thoughtful, interesting conversation.
And if you’ve ever felt like you wanted to add something, but resisted because you were afraid you’d sound stupid, all I can say is that, personally, I sound stupid at least half the time, and most everybody else around here sounds stupid only slightly less than that. But that’s okay. It’s fun to think about and argue about and rant about music, musicians and the music industry.
Also, we’ve got to thank the people who’ve bought our t-shirts and stuff and those who placed ads. You’ve kept us from having to turn tricks out on the street. (And we’d really have to hustle because we ain’t pretty—except for Johnny.) So thanks.
And while I’m at it, I’d also like to say what up to one of the early inspirations for Glorious Noise, a site called us|against|them, who went offline for a long, long time but recently came back into action. Back in the day, they turned us on to cool things like the Live365 radio stream (R.I.P.), the moreover.com news feed, and the three-column layout. Go back in time via the Wayback Machine: u|a|t from March 2001, GLONO from the same month. Ha.
On that embarrassing note, I’m outta here…
