The Sticking Point is slowly creeping back to life. In the next several weeks (I'll try to post a relaunch date as soon as I can), the site will return with a new design and a new function. Those of you who liked the Friday 10 concept will, I hope, like what will be happening here.
In short, each Friday post will feature the ten-song writeups you're already familiar with, plus a podcast/internet radio broadcast I'll host featuring the week's 10 songs. (I'll supply a link to USendIt, where you can download these Sticking Pointcasts for free.) Sure it will be a lot of music-nerd/fanboy stuff and the occasional rant against human weakness, but for tolerating that (and the grating sound of mi voz) you'll be rewarded with some of the best songs in the history of recorded sound. No lie.
The format won't be entirely random tracks, like the F10s were; instead, I'll choose four or five songs that I just have to share -- the stuff you've got to hear, and another four or five will be tracks my iTunes spun randomly. If that sounds good, then cool. I hope this works. There's a terabyte-worth of amazing music I've heard since the last time I wrote TSP, and I can't wait to get it in your ears.
And another thing: Thanks to all the diehards who continued to visit this URL and emailed to ask if and when it might pick up again.
