Brian - Welcome to the slightly thinner Growing Bored For A Living!

During Scott's downtime from the Internet, I wanted to do something good for the blog while I was at the wheel. So I went back - waaaay back, up to five years - and thinned out posts with dead links. When I started, Growing Bored was up around 1725 posts. I've managed to whittle it down to around 1050 posts. So, the blog is about a third smaller now. Thankfully, I got Scott's blessing, and I ran with it.

While having these posts around attracted hits, it also gave Scott headaches, like innumerable re-up requests. This was especially true of the "Best ____ Post Ever" and psych series posts.

We've had a definite increase in readership the last 6-10 months, and I wanted the daily read count to more accurately reflect what we have up, not what used to be. And rest assured, I wrote down everything that got deleted in a master list, should Scott get the urge to upload something again. Just don't ask him about the Hendrix!

So, I invite you to go way back in the blog and poke around. I haven't taken care of every dead post, but I've gotten many of them. There's still live links going all the way back to his Le Tigre post in early 2013.

Going through all that, I noticed some trends, and I have a pretty good sense now of what hasn't been posted around here. That's what I want to devote the next few months to: jazz, blues, soul, funk, etc. Basically, I'm gonna blacken things up around here! That's meant two ways, since we could use some far-out extreme metal too.

There will still be random cover projects and comedy, don't worry. Gonna get into soundtracks some more, too. You guys seemed to like that last batch. And the Big Guy should be getting his internet back soon, so things will resume en masse I'm sure.

And hey....if you guys do go way back and find something else that's dead, come back here and let me know, OK?
