Musicwhore.org is going on extended hiatus

I’m going to take a break from updating this site for a while.

Back in March, I learned my position at the University of Washington was eliminated. My last day in the office is May 1.

Of course, I’m writing this entry a month ahead of that date, so by the time it’s published, I could very well have found new employment.

Regardless, I need to concentrate on that job search. You’ll know I’ve found one when the site returns. I’ll continue to post Purchase Log updates.

See you then!

It’s time to recharge for 2018

Somehow I managed to keep up a publishing schedule through one of the busiest quarter’s I’ve encountered in my remedial academic career. Yes, that’s right — I’ve been juggling school, work, music projects and this blog.

So now it’s time to recharge a bit and give 2018 a chance to unfold its musical offerings.

New entries fire up again in February.

Musicwhore.org is taking a break in September 2017

As you all know, I try to write my entries ahead of time, so it’s the middle of August as I write this entry.

Summer has been busy with entertaining visitors and playing tourist. As a result, I haven’t been preparing any entries for September.

So I’m going to let the month go without updates. It probably won’t be till September when I can get around to writing more entries.

See you then!

Musicwhore.org goes on summer holiday

By the time you read this announcement, I would have wrapped up my vacation in July. Because I write my entries ahead of time, you wouldn’t have noticed a thing … until now.

I took a week off to visit family in Hawaii, and another week to recover from that visit. Now I’m facing a large project at work starting to ramp up.

So I’m taking a break from updating this site, which means August will be a barren month.

Entries should resume in September.

Meta: It looks like a break, but really, it’s work

After a sputtering relaunch in 2014, I finally achieved a bit of a groove in 2015. The decision to publish weekly is just the right pace for me, and in reality, I would stockpile entries for weeks at a time, then dole them out one by one.

This method allowed me large chunks of time to enjoy listening to music for the joy of it instead of trying to find content for this site. In this way, new entries would show up on the site at regular intervals, even if my work on them happened in spurts.

Well, I’ve run out of entries.

I’ve been taking some music classes, studying Japanese on my own and even did a bit of travelling this past fall, which squeezed out time to write. Rather than scramble to fill January, I’m going to let the site go a bit barren for the rest of the month.

New weekly entries will resume in February.
