So, a revelation hit me like a ton of bricks last night: there is nothing going on. I mean, music-wise. Sure, the summer tours are chugging along, but this was expected. Rock the Bayou is in two weeks, and that will basically signal the end to concert season. Still, it seems like there hasn't been much activity in the Glam world recently. Maybe it's the post-Rocklahoma letdown, or the dog days of summer...but I swear...there just hasn't been anything exciting to talk about. Sure, there was the feud between Poison and Def Leppard, but that was more ridiculous than news.
I feel like all the music websites have been quiet. You know, Metal Sludge, Blabbermouth... there are not many albums coming out in the immediate few weeks.
Is it me, or does the music world feel like it is in a rut? I scan music websites many times throughout the day. I'd rather break stories than just repost, but if I think you'll really like something, I pop it up here. I've noticed you like enterprise journalism more than interviews and reviews. If you're not familiar, enterprise reporting is basically when I create stories out of thin air. You know, talk off the cuff. Anyway, I haven't even found much worth reposting as of late.
Back to the rut. I feel like I haven't read anything interesting in weeks on Myspace, either. Usually I get tidbits for stories just from scanning bulletins. Not lately. I wonder if this is because everyone is on vacation? After all, summer is one perpetual holiday.
Please tell me I'm not the only one that feels stuck in a music rut?
