April shananigans bring May... flannigans?

With the Evil Shananigans blog now running for more than 2 years and me having chewed up and spit out (apparently) 214 posts, I find myself hitting a wall.  This blog has been a fantastic writing outlet for me, as well as a great way to further connect with one of the most important things in my life; music.  For you, hopefully it's at least brought a few cheap laughs and the odd good music find.

However, recently, I find myself struggling for inspiration.  Posts have become forced.  Music has lost some love.  Shananigans have become less cheeky and fun... more cruel and tragic.  As such, to spice things up, I've decided to slightly change the format of this blog for the month of April.  While the past two years have been a *somewhat* proper review of new bands providing *very basic* historical information and *abysmal at best* descriptions of tunes... I've found that my best posts have always involved a more personal edge.

So to hell with whatever shred of integrity I had left.  Out the door with proper sentences and  logical progression.  For the month of April, I want to get to the core of what music means to me and why I'm listening to, what I listen to.  Each post will be a very brief description of why I've been listening to a tune that day and what it means to me.  Each tune will be a projection of my personality, and my day.  This format will likely mean that I may post more often, however, there will likely be less obscure music, and things are likely to get a lot more random.

You've been warned.

I'll continue to post videos and audio links through the website, so if you've been reading the republished versions though facebook, and have yet to figure out that you need to click the link at the bottom to hear the tunes... man must these posts have been boring.

Until then... enjoy the music.  I know I will.
