2009: The Blog/ Blob

documents a year of listening, at times other forms of cultural consumption, and in rarer cases writings about the ensuing experiences, specifically focusing on the "sharity" phenomenon that made its mark in the latter half of the decade, hundreds (thousands?) of blogs giving away digital copies of experimental music that - for the most part, the exceptions drawing justified ire - had been dificult to find.

A few articles originally published here are now featured in edited/ amended form as part of a larger essay on the "Aughts" at Sweet Pea.

Please begin reading the Blog/ Blob with the essay, "'Sharity' Doesn't Begin at Home."
