Happy New Year, Everyone!
HAPPY NEW YEAR, EVERYONE!
Hey folks, Aaron of the KMA here…
For the past few months, you may have noticed that my Reading and Commenting has been reduced to wee waves when I get a moment. Not nearly enough for me, as I want to read all your posts… And speaking of posts, I’ve cut mine down to those little brief barfs that quite probably don’t do justice to anything I’m hearing.
Life. Is. Busy. Because all the everything. You know how it goes, the never-ending cycle. I always seemed to manage time for this stuff before, but lately it’s all been kicking my ass.
We’ve also, recently, had three plumbing emergencies in a row, here at the house. So, much fun was had dealing with contractors and plumbers. Ugh. Most frightening, some of the water damage was just on the other side of the wall from the Man Cave. Oh no! But oh yes it’s true. Gah! And so began the immediate move of the collection to the next room over. But then we decided to re-paint both rooms as we went, so it’s all in flux, half done and half waiting to go, one wall at a time as we get time. Gah.
I’m not much one for New Years’ Resolutions. In my experience they’re crap and no one sticks to them. Gyms, for example, are packed in January and back to normal volume by February. Etc. For me, it just has to be a clear decision to do something, made at the right time when it needed to be made, and then I’ll do it. So I actually made several decisions a long while back, and have been doing some of the things since October. I have slowly been setting myself up to get the rest underway since then (in the midst of all the other stuff life threw this way), and I’m simply going to use January 1 (today) as a start date because it’s neat and tidy. Baby steps. So…
2019 will be the year of the vinyl. In moving things around, I realized that I have so much goodness here. I know 1537 will approve. I know Bop said I need a new needle and I’m on it when I notice it needs it. So, as I work away on a million things, I will drop the needle. Cool. The brevity will likely continue. I might even get to hone it! Make an art of it… I will cover other stuff too, as I hear/read it, but LP is 2019’s default format. I can dig it.
I will (eventually) catch up on all your posts. By December even (haha) I should be all caught up. Also, the KMA has some background work that needs doing. If I have nothing else to do (haha) I’ll chip away at that. You won’t even notice it – few go back to the old stuff very often, anyway. But it’s bugged me a long while, and I’ll know it’s done, complete.
That’s enough, I’d say. It will take me all year, but who cares? Let’s give ‘er!
HAPPY NEW YEAR, DEAR CONSTANT READERS! We are gonna rock 2019, I just know it.
TURN IT ON AND TURN IT UP.
