This Little Blog of Mine, I'm Gonna Let It Die

Ain't it funny how time slips away? Its been a year already since I began polluting the blogosphere. You'd think by now I'd have become better, but nope, its still amateur hour here in the BlastFurniss. Just be happy you don't have to pay a cover charge to get in.

I started this blog on a whim and I had no idea what I was gonna do with it. Originally, I was gonna go for the real serious stuff and that lasted maybe a day. Then I turned it into a USA Today type blog with news, sports and entertainment and then it hit me, no one likes USA Today. Finally it turned into this little hodgepodge of crap with more of an emphasis on music and I think its worked out much better. Traffic picked up considerably in January and March set a record for hits. Traffic since has stayed pretty constant. I'm shocked that people who don't know me have read this stuff but I appreciate them dropping in. I have a big ego and I enjoy having an audience.

To get to the point of this long winded post, I'm shutting down the blog in June. But that doesn't mean I'm leaving the intergoogles...Oh no, my friends....just wait till you see whats coming next. We're talking full out, balls to the wall, dot com action (whatever the hell that means).....Within the next week or two there will be a major press release (no seriously...there's gonna be a major press release) to announce what I'm gonna be up to.

It ain't easy some days to blog on your get sick, you get tired, you get writers block (you think I'd have put this up today if I could have thought of something else to write on?) I'm fortunate to have found the perfect partner to conquer the internet with...this man is the Seals to my Crofts, the Jagger to my Richards, the Gene to my Paul, the Shields to my Yarnell, the Captain to my Tennille....he is Lemmy to my Fast Eddie.....He is the one, the only, the legendary, Tony award winning, ya wanna be like him but ya can't, O.M.O.M.

As for what we're gonna be up to, you'll just have to wait for the press release. I've given away more than I intended to....although if you're clever enough, you might discover the name of our project somewhere here on the main page.

In the meantime, we'll finish up Mayhem and move on to the month of Jewne where each day I'll feature a tune by a Jewish performer, including that much discussed, and thought lost clip of Barbara Streisand dueting with Lemmy back in 1978.

That's it for today....remember if you're driving thru a crosswalk and you see anyone from Fleetwood Mac crossing the street, floor it!

...The Kevin Cronin to my Gary Richradth. Where you are the circa-1978 Cronin and I'm more the Behind The Music era, bloated, drunk and semi incoherent Gary Richradth.

I'm tracking down Gerri Miller to craft the press release...

I'm glad you made the Cronin-Ricrath referernce rather than the dreaded Dennis DeYoung to Tommy Shaw.

I think Gerri Miller has been in the witness protection program hiding from Lonn Friend and Shawn Card. Sludge went after her big time in their prime.
