Two things,

First. Sorry for the sudden shift of the site from Blogger to WordPress. I hadn’t intended to leave blogger, but when I upgraded to the new version I found that I couldn’t log in with my Google account from third party apps. Not wanting to wait until either ecto or MacJournal got up to speed with Blogger’s change and knowing that I’d never get around to writing anything if I was forced to use the web interface, I made a split second decision to try out WordPress. I got it up and running on this site pretty quickly, liked what I saw and decided to just screw it and made the change.

The major pains of the move should be behind us. Let me know if you have any problems. Hopefully people can comment on these entries with out any problems (someone please try) if you do have problems. Drop me an email at mattwsweeney over at gmail.com. BTW, the feedburner feed has been fixed. I still need to create an about page, but that should be it.

Second, there’s no review today because I’m trying something new. Usually my reviews are sketched out in my head and then largely written in one swoop. I go back and do a little editing, but most of that is concerned with correcting errors caused by my inability to type as fast as I think (I also have problems talking as fast as I think, which leads to me sometimes sounding like an idiot. May be I just need to think slower…).

Tonight though, I’m trying to actually sit down, listen to an album and make notes on it while I do so. Then, I’ll come back later and write a review of the album. My hope is that this will lead to more focused reviews (he says while eyeing his reviews so far). Once the review is posted, please post any thoughts you have. This is really the first time I’ve tried something like this and I’m interested to get some reaction on it.

Of course, first I need to write the review and post it. Hopefully tomorrow.

Till then.
