Who's loving you? CLLCT is.

Still toying with if/how to restart the blog, but I needed to check in with a link to yet another fun Collective Family (CLLCT) tribute project: Our Bad: A Michael Jackson Tribute Compilation, which you can download at that page. It features the work of few of my favorite songwriting/songsharing-obsessed Internet (and somewhat beyond) friends, James Eric, Tinyfolk, iron like nylon and more. If you hear anything you like, you might want to spend a little time (mintues, hours, days, weeks, months?) checking out the work of those featuring their music on CLLCT. I know I have and consider it a great resource for good free music by people who love to write and share music. Long live bedroom rock. Or folk. Or whatever. All of it.

Also: James Eric and Erin Vogel cover Wilco's Yankee Hotel Foxtrot.

There was nothing in the world that I ever wanted more.

Still working out the details of the new blog in the midst of my job hunt, etc. Until then, I just couldn't wait to share this:

Question for fellow blogger types who've abandoned Blogger.

I'm thinking of moving the site away from Blogger before restarting because I hear that, even in cases where permission has been granted to host an MP3, they've removed them. Where should I look to move and/or what program can I use with my own domain/host that has similarly easy-to-navigate templates and less Big Brotherism?

It lives?

Cough, cough. Is this thing on?

Just more than a year ago I stopped blogging here in the hope that my life would move me in a direction to decide whether I was going to start up again or not. I stopped the blog because it seemed a little frivolous in light of the real-life crap that was going on in my life. And a lot was going on then and even more went on. I was sick, I was underemployed, I eventually relocated from Chicago to Bloomington, IN, in the hope of assisting my ill father who died a few weeks later, in April my best friend committed suicide. My health is better, but I'm still underemployed and have lost two of my favorite people in the world. But I'm doing fine. Better than fine, most days.

So, yeah, life just continues to throw shit at me and I'm taking it pretty well, I think, and now it seems kind of silly not to have a fun, cover-filled diversion. I'm currently deciding if the potentially revived Copy, Right? will be just as it was or if I'll reinvent it somehow. Admittedly, I have been too preoccupied with all of the aforementioned stuff to even pay attention to cover songs or my fellow cover bloggers in the past year or more so I might not be cutting-edge. I can live with that. I still have tens of thousands of covers piled up I've never shared, and I'm sure there are a slew of awful and/or awesome gems in there.

Aaaaaanyhow, I'm thinking a return is imminent, probably by the beginning of July. Keep your eyes peeled.

ETA: Apologies in advance if every old C,R? post shows up in your blogroll/feed reader in the next few days. I'm unhiding them. And, no, I unfortunately cannot reupload the hundreds of songs I'd posted back in the day. Sorry.
