A Word From The Management

Good day/evening/morn -

I just wanted to give everyone an update on the goings-on (or lack thereof) in and around Shiny Grey Monotone Land.

It has been dully noted that postings have slowed to a trickle as of late, and for that I apologize. Rest assured, I still feel strongly about the format of this website, and the concept of spreading un(der)heard music around the globe, and I will continue to keep the proverbial home fires burning, hopefully with greater consistency in the near term.

You may, or may not, have noticed that I'm sort of running the ship on my own these days, and that's certainly not by choice. Ipecac, our fearless leader, started this blog so many moons ago and was nice enough to invite me on board to contribute. Well, for reasons not entirely clear, and not entirely my business, Ipecac is taking an internet timeout and may return one day soon, or may never be seen or heard from again. Don't know, but I hope he's back in the fold before too long. As for the other contributors, over the years they appear to surface in cycles, every few weeks or so, and since it's a volunteer network of autonomous individuals who have never so much as seen each other, well, it's difficult to forecast when their posts will begin anew. Again, I hope it's sooner rather than later.

If I had the power to deputize new contributors into the team, I would. But I don't. So I won't.

Excuses aside, I thought it my duty to grant the reading audience some sort of reasoning as to the state of the blog (as it were), and let you know of my intentions at least, to keep it running. I hope you all continue to stick with it, and let me (us) know how you like or don't like it.

I have a whole slew of compilations that I want to post from the brief "internet radio" show that we were running a couple years back that are really good (they stay in rotation on my iPod for exercise, driving, etc), I just need to get them back onto my computer. Maybe this weekend I'll finally get to it.
I'm also trying to get to as many of the re-uploads as I have the energy to do, just bear with it, chances are if you requested something, it's on it's way...it's long and mysterious way.

And there you have it. Shiny Grey Monotone circa 2012 is still a "thing", and will move into the future as a "thing" so long as there's "things" to post about...and that "thing" really shouldn't be a "thing" know should it.

Onward and upward,

If you can imagine someone behind you, gently pushing you forward AND trying to go through her pockets, that'll be me. Carry on.
