I think it’s been over a year since I posted on Tumblr. I think I’ve come back sporadically to stalk some people here and there, and to see funny things, but for the most part I’ve avoided it. Partly because I couldn’t be bothered, partly because I couldn’t think of anything exciting to post, and partly because whenever I did post, it felt like I was shouting into a storm.
I have a great desire to be heard, and to be acknowledged, and so in the world of social media, where my tweets go unread, my Facebook updates go unliked, and my Tumblr posts go unblogged, I felt as though I didn’t have any impact. And I probably didn’t, which is fair. The internet is a big place.
However, I’ve been inspired by a very good friend to start again, as I posted music quite often, and she enjoys my taste (a rare quality among my friends, it seems) so if I can remember, I’ll be posting music that I enjoy and that I think other people will enjoy on a semi-regular basis, as well as providing weekly updates or random musings.
We’ll see how long this lasts.
First up, we’ll have five ambient/new age music songs. Then probably five folktronica kind of songs. Then the one after is up to you!
I’ve done a thing on metal before, but I’m going to do another set of videos on all kinds of things I didn’t do. It’ll be pretty awesome. Bear in mind, though, it’s going to be a whole host of random stuff, and it’ll probably be pretty inaccessible unless you’re already a metal fan. Just a heads up.
