Via The Madness Within, here's the meme where we recap the blog year by highlighting the first sentence in the first post for each month:
January: It's the eve of the every-four-year Presidential Caucuses in the state of Iowa.
February: Or to phrase it in English, my overly large MP3 collection (>25,000 MP3s) was causing iTunes to overheat my PC.
April: 'Revolution 9,' by Alarm Will Sound -- New York Magazine Classical Music Review "Alarm Will Sound turns the Beatles’ “Revolution 9”—this is not a joke—into chamber music."
May: I've changed how I organize my reed reading in Bloglines.
June: My Fickle Ears Dig It: Identity "we tend to accept the premise that it is better to say "do this" than..."don't do that." Nevertheless, this mode of thinking tends to go out the window when tuba players approach repertoire that predates the tuba, especially anything by J.S. Bach."
