365 Albums - Admitting Defeat

This was the wrong time in my life to attempt this.

It would have been better to do it a year or two ago when I was still childless...or in about 18 years when he leaves for college.

I went into this knowing how big a commitment it would really be. Seven albums a week, digested enough to say something about them on this blog? It got to be overwhelming.

It also became a chore. Music is on my short list of things in life that I never want to become a chore.

I wanted to make it a point to experience new music, but this was a little too much.

So I'm throwing in the towel. Three or four a week is much more reasonable. But then it'd be 247 albums. Or whatever.

But 365 Albums is done. Maybe I'll bring back the Roundup. Or maybe I'll just post a brief blurb about what I'm listening to this week without being so concerned with numbers. I dunno. Give me a little bit to think about that.

It was nice while it lasted. But I can't keep up. Not with a little one in the house. So I'll try something else.
