Gee, did you notice the first month of the year is half over already? How did that happen so quickly?
You know, Battle of the Bands has been going on a long, long, long, long, long . . well, maybe not THAT long time. Started by then ex-pat FAR AWAY EYES, then supported by everyone's favorite fascist Stephen T McCarthy, and joined by many, many music enthusiasts over its blogging history. Through good times and sad times, wacky and weird, classic and rock and hip hop and raggae blues; this group has risen to the challenge twice a month.
I've posted for the BotB more often than not, until lately. So nice to see some new faces hanging out, and new tastes in music; plus those old timers (not necessarily OLD timers Lee) and their steady bop. I've enjoyed this variety show, and made some good friends along the way; but its time for me to join the ranks of those that have
My excuses run from sooooo so busy, to the "I really should be writing," but eventually is probably more like I've run out of ideas. A combination of all expected justifications, but boils down to this being my last post - for the Battles. For a while anyways.
Not the last time I'll visit all the BotB participants, as time allows. As mentioned, I've made some awesome friends with this competition series, and I prefer reading/listening to posts rather than crafting them lately.
Life being what it is, I'm intending to focus what free time I have (between procrastination tactics and writing related commitments) on actual WRITING. Its been a couple years since I had anything published, and I just bet if I sat down and wrote out some of those stories, then let my CPs nit pik out the flaws and submitted to ezines, I might feel that writing gratification again. Maybe. I'll start with the Lost and Found blogfest on Feb 1 - meaning I better get something written soon or that deadline will pass me by too.
My song pick today isn't a battle. I'd probably forget (as always) to return to post the votes and winners. And wowzers, do you know how many sappy or f**k you leaving/goodbye/farewell songs are out there? I'm not dying, going away forever, or pissed at my BotB relationship! Have we had a blast or what? So I'm sparing y'all that with just a simple song that imparts the sentiment "yo, don't forget to come back for regular posts; I'll see you for your's too!"
Later Folks. See ya around the virtual studios.
