Blogger reminisce...

This goes back a bit to when I noticed Sad Songs For Dirty Lovers was gone.

Don't know if the sites were googlified or the blog owner simply moved on with life but it got me thinking about other blogs that have disappeared.

Below are some of the blogs that have been significant in helping me discover new music.  I can't even begin to tell you the countless hours I spent surfing the web searching, discovering, seeking and absorbing new music that helped me break free of the musical confines of my youth.

You know times have changed when a "history" article is written about music blogging.  This indicates not only a level of recognition but a level of maturity.  It will be interesting to see where it all evolves to from here.

I'll add to the list as I remember, discover or am otherwise reminded.

Please feel free to add to the list if you remember any that are embedded with us in the music they shared:

everythingonmyipod (of course)
Hypnotic Breaks (my first full immersion into dub techno)
Sad Songs For Dirty Lovers
Difficult Listening (aka (source of the 4AD Rare Tracks compilation)

P.S. Should things change here just remember that I hadtocallitsomethingelse.


  1. Aren't u a little depressive here. Things change - people grow and enters new paths.

  2. You are absolutely correct. I suppose the tone was triggered by yet another c_pyr_ght notice. Upon reflection I realize that it comes with the territory.

    I do know from my experience with EOMI that blogs often get shut down and it can sap the energy out of the blogger. Other blogs have met similar fates.

    But you are right that sometimes folks just move on with life.

    I'll soften up the title a bit. It's meant to be more sentimental than depressive.

    Thanks for pointing it out!
