In Praise Of Folly

Well, I gave it a shot. But this is formally announcing that my tracks of the decade list was one project too far, so I’m discontinuing these write-ups. While I think some of the posts were good, and I enjoyed doing them all, I didn’t have the commitment I have for Popular and I didn’t have the time to fit it in around the paid writing I do (and, you know, my actual job.)

Apologies to you all, O lovely readers.

There are LOADS of other good end-of-decade blogs out there: I will talk about some of them in another post, probably next week but maybe this.

And what about the remaining 169-ish tracks? Well, starting tomorrow I’m going to turn the @freakytrigger Twitter feed over to listing them with Youtube links, probably at a fair old clip – 7 or 8 a day – so if you want to know what they are, follow that. I will see if Alan can rig up some jiggery-pokery that feeds it to here, too.

And before that you can hear a selection from my top 50 or so at POPTIMISM at the Horse Bar on Friday evening, when we do our end-of-decade roundup.

    Not to worry Tom. If you don’t fail sometimes, how do know you’re doing the right thing the rest of the time?

    Could you put up a full easy-to-find, easy-to-read list at some point please though? I was getting a lot of good stuff from the project, but it was just too bitty to see very much of it.
