It’s been a week of milestones: My 40th birthday. Two years of my being stay-at-home Dad. And now, another one…
THE KMA’S 1000th POST!
It seems hard to believe, in a way. But then, you think of all the blather we’ve slapped up here (Aaron being the overwhelming majority guilty party on that score), it’s also not all that surprising.
We could have hit this milestone a while back, but we’ve seemed to go in first and starts. Consistency in postings hasn’t always been the name of the game. Many months only had one or two posts. Now, Aaron has made a concerted (pun intended) effort to have a post for every day of 2014 (so far), and that’s admirable, but it hasn’t always been so. Then again, there were periods with multiple posts per day, so go figure. Be it all what it may be, we’re here now and it is what it is.
Here are some KMA stats, as of our 1000th post:

Wow. This is really awesome. When you see the numbers like that, it really puts things into perspective. And all this from a couple of guys voluntarily putting up stuff about music for shits and giggles.
Thanks to all of you for reading, commenting, following, lurking, passing through, heckling… all of you! Thanks! We’d be nothing but two guys firing things into the ether to no one at all without you.
Music is still very much keeping us alive.
Here’s to the next 1000 posts!
