What in the world happened to ITR??: 2012 In Review

Posted: January 3, 2013 by Is This Revolutionary? in Album

Before I can tell you that story, I have to tell you this story. I started here as a freshman in college to help out my friend Ricky (E.) write this blog. I didn’t realize this, but he helped me more than I helped him. This became an outlet for me, allowing me to express my love for this genre of music while meeting new people. It became like a sort of business without any revenue, what we called “semi-serious” blogging. E. left us in August 2011 and it’s been hard to fill his shoes.

All right, so what really happened this year is a lot of behind-the-scenes personal stuff. Firstly, the failed ITR? Renovation that ended up costing a lot more than I had been told/imagined. I’m kind of keeping your money company in the bank with my own personal money until we have enough money to actually renovate. I promise, I haven’t spent a dime, and if anyone really, truly wants it back, I’m more than happy to return it and fix this myself. It’s just a bitch, it’s a labor of love, and I still really want to see this through.

Second, I’m one guy. Really the only permanent member of the ITR? staff, my tenure here has been plagued with inconsistency. I love the guy like my brother still, but Ricky’s posts weren’t of the same quality we like to put out here at ITR?. Joe left us in mid-2011, and may his soul rest in peace. So now our team consists of a sporadic Anthony, A & I. You’d think that’d be enough, but it isn’t. I promise you’ll see a lot more of me this year.

All right, so now for the good news, I’m going to get us back on track. Expect the new Gifts From Enola tomorrow.
