A few words of explanation

Hello.....hope everyone's post-Christmas finds them well. I had a joyous one myself, one of the best
in my memory, for a variety or reasons.....BUT what I want to talk about is this here blog. In general, I take pride in trying to post at least a LITTLE something every single day.....once in a while, say, if I'm hospitalized with some mystery ailment or something, I'll miss a few days, but I DO like to offer SOMETHING up for you guys to share almost everyday......

On Christmas Eve, I wrote up the Opeth post, dragged out my CD's.......and discovered that everyone of them (except one, I think) was created from FLAC files.....That is a pain, because most FLAC albums have to be split in half, ie 2 seprate uploads, and in the case of someone like Opeth, who specialize in 15+ minute opus-like material, it can require three splits......now, Opeth has like ten studio albums (maybe more, I'd count but I don't care), and I had the three double Live albums as well, so we had about 16 discs worth of material, afer splittng them to get them under the maximum allowable 200mb/upload limit, I was at over FORTY uploads for this post.

OK, didn't give it a LOT of thought, BUT THEN my internet connection went screwey.....slow as hell
for uploads......finally got someone to look at it Saturday (all the while uploading slowly the Opeth), it still isn't as fast as it SHOULD be but it's useable......right now, sunday night, I have EXACTLY TWO more files to upload and Opeth will be in the books.....anyway, for some reason, I had a Grand Funk Railroad thing written up, and in thinking I could keep the daily posting going, I put THAT up on Xmas night......well, I'm still dicking around with Opeth....want to get THAT finished before the GFR (NOT Flac files, MP3's which should be painless and I hope to get up yet tonight....I still have ONE more week off of work!).....so, by the time I take my sleeping pills tonight, I am hoping both Opeth and GFR are DONE and ready for your consumption, should you so desire......

Now, here's the exciting part, a new blog friend "Dave Sez" is sending us a BUNCH of great Jam stuff, he's already sent some, when he gets it all sent, he'll be guesting over PART THREE (!) of "Here Comes the Jam", and all of us need to thank him profusely for all the great Jam stuff that I didn't have to share with everyone.....as I've said before that is HOW I WANT this to work.....bunch of people who WANT TO SHARE their music collections, if SHARING isn't your thing. you are, I think, in the wrong place. SHARING is what this site is ALL ABOUT, and PLEASE, if you personally have anything interesting, PLEASE post it in my comments section (or email to me if you prefer).....By now everyone knows the turf this blog hits upon.....punk, metal, stoner, psych, garage, and, really, anything weird.

Got another sleep study tomorrow night, as they attempt to cure my apnea (it's "complex" apnea,
YAY!)......and then we have New Years Eve, etc, but I will get, by then, Opeth, GFR, hopefully the Jam Part 3 all done, and get on to the next thing, which may (or may NOT be) Blodwyn Pig (just a thought!)

I AM still working on the blog, have not abandoned you guys......love you all, and hope you don't stop visiting simply due to a combination of circumstances that has slowed me down just a hair.....thing should get back to normal soon, and all will be you know, like way cool and stuff!

Tonight for photo-decoration of the blog I feature Vikki Blows.....I have NO IDEA who she is but obviously that name is HARD HARD HARD to resist.......Hi Vikki! Love ya!~
