I should be in bed! Instead, I’ve spent the last hour and a half importing the reviews from the old site, customizing the navigation, working out the kinks in the design and writing up my first album review.
I had a hell of a time with it, but all album reviews are up and ready! Five or so of the album reviews wouldn’t import correctly, but that’s an issue for another day.
I’m working on implementing a new directory of free, legal albums. There are countless thousands of free albums scattered across the internet, and they should be more accessible to a wider range of the indie-listening public! For example: did you know that Explosions in the Sky’s The Rescue was released as a free download? Or that Brian Jonestown Massacre released virtually every album as free downloads?)
I’ve also started to cover some concert information there to your right. These are all exclusive to Buffalo, New York right, specifically Soundlab and Tralf. I think this may end up being a page unto itself with added new York venues, and possibly automated updates and an RSS feed. Just a thought.
