The Music Banter Members' Journals Update Thread, July 2017
I'm certainly in no position to be criticising, given the fact that I've stopped all my journals, but still, I have to say, only nine journals updated in a month, and two of them are new ones only started very recently? Just as well I didn't try to keep doing this on a weekly basis. Anyway, let's get on with July's update, such as it is, shall we?
1blankmind Does Whatever He Damn Well Pleases and it seems what he pleases recently is to review albums in a Batlord style. This month there's JME's Integrity, and he has more lined up, including one from ICP! Oh Batty, you devil!
First of those two new journals comes from Dylstew, who, after some time lurking and occasionally posting, has been getting more active recently. Dylstew's Post-Hardcore Journey. kicks off with reviews of Sonic Youth, Minutemen and Naked Raygun.
Wow! For a moment there the world just warped and slipped through the looking glass! I thought Exo was reviewing a Yes album! But no, it's some band called Osibisa, whose logo looks very Roger Dean-inspired. On Exo's Saved Section you'll also find Covet, Clem Beats and That Handsome Devil. No, not Exo: well, I'm sure he is handsome but, you know, just not my type...
Competent bosses, clever marketing and high wages: none of these things can be found in A Classy B*stard's 9 to 5, but a lot of fun stories sure can.
Another new journal then in Micshazam's album and song picks, where you'll find Cristina Branco, La Yegros, Waltari and a whole lot more.
Mord's Musical Odyssey has been rebranded to Museum Musica, but you'll still find the usual mix of great and eclectic music there that you're used to finding. This month there's Richard Dawson, Marvin Gaye, Mastodon and more.
OccultHawk has decided to call time on Experimental Music on Spotify Worth Checking Out. That is all. Please restrain yourselves. All sharp objects will be taken away as a precaution. Counsellors are standing by for your calls.
And finally, a very sad and heartbreaking message of loss from Pet_Sounds on The Scrap Heap. We're all here for you, man.
Given the dearth of entries here, and while I understand some of you really put a lot of effort into your journals, it seems redundant for me to do anything like Post of the Month, so I'm just going to leave it here. This is getting less and less fun to do, and not just because I'm no longer contributing to my own journals. It just seems that if not dying, then the journal section certainly is in the ICU. I can't say anything; normally I'd be throwing entries into my journals and exorting you to do the same, but I can hardly preach when I've locked up my pulpit, can I? Nevertheless, if things don't improve it may not be worth my continuing with this update. I guess it's up to you guys.
With a Faery hand in hand;
For the world's more full of weeping than you can understand.
W.B Yeats, The Stolen Child.

I'm actually pretty proud of what I put together on the experimental journal
it's a convenient resource and showcases a lot over underexposed music
Desperate for pussy, his face a contortion,
listening to The Contortions as he jerks off to an abortion.
