New Year, New Look

Hey y’all, Aaron here. As you may recall, I’ve been toying with the idea of brevity on the KMA for a while now, so I am taking the turning of the new year as a great opportunity to try it. Each record will receive distilled thoughts in a (hopefully) concise paragraph.

It’ll often seem alphabetical, as I go through my iTunes, but that’ll get broken up as I also hear new additions, and jump formats from MP3-CD-LP-cassette, and go back to listening to CDs in the Office (our Subaru) with my daughter when school fires back up on the 5th.

In the case of an artist having more than one album in a post, I will listen objectively and comment on each’s own merits while avoiding undue comparison.

I may still break out the longer posts if it feels warranted, such as in the case of gratitude posts for gifts, or maybe if I get possessed of the notion of doing more artist series, but by and large I want to try to tighten things down quite a bit. I’ll look forward to your thoughts on the new approach!

NB. James, of course, is not obligated to participate in this experiment at all, and will bring his own awesomeness in his own way, and on his own schedule!

2015, y’all. Let’s give ‘er!

    I like the ‘less is more’ philosophy – I can’t remember which speaker had the quote but I enjoyed the line “I’m sorry for the length, I didn’t have time to make it shorter!”

      Less definitely can be more! The thing is to try to compress everything I have into such a short space… it’s tough!

      The internets attribute Blaise Pascal with saying “I have only made this letter longer because I have not had the time to make it shorter.(Letter 16, 1657)'”.

      Also, apparently, Mark Twain said “‘I didn’t have time to write a short letter, so I wrote a long one instead.'”

      Thank you, Googles!

      HAPPY NEW YEAR Mike! I hope this year brings you and Jenn all the awesome you can handle, and then some more!

      Naw, James doesn’t have to play along with my whims. He does what he does and it’s awesome. He’s the glue that makes the KMA rock. I am the fibberty jibbit! 🙂

        LOL! That’s a great way to put out!

        Thanks buddy, we are both ready to GIVE ER in the new year. In fact I’m given’er right now! Just finished the first forthcoming WTF post for 2015 🙂
