Happy Birthday To Us: sort of. NYLPM is six months old, which seems to be rather a long time in the ever-changing world of online pop sites. It certainly feels like months longer. Thanks to the contributors and just as importantly to the readers, and thanks to all the indie rock sites who link to us despite our continual pokings at that noble artform. I’ve come into contact with some very interesting and entertaining people via NYLPM, and I hope I’ve interested and entertained a bit in turn. There’s a discussion set up in the forum for improvement suggestions and ideas for new features, and that’s frankly enough gushing. Back to the links: here’s music.com’s vapid Pop Star Birthdays.
