100th Post. This calls for a celebration!
Big coming to C'mon and Cheer Me Up! Most importantly, we're opening up to new writers. My buddy, Jimbo, will be contributing reviews and other things. Jimbo specializes in hardcore, and knows a ton more about it than I do, so finally all of you hardcore fans will see more of your favorite bands being covered (perhaps).
Next: We now have a Facebook page. If you like the blog, you can check us out over there: http://www.facebook.com/CmonCheerMeUp
Lastly, to celebrate this moment, I've created a Spotify playlist. It's a playlist called Ten Things that I've been working on for a little over a year at this point. The songs are meant to represent ten things that you would like to tell someone, a significant other, a parent, a best friend, a late family member, or even a stranger that affected your life- anyone really- but you never got the chance to tell them. Obviously, some of these songs are personal to me, but if any of this strikes a chord with you I urge you to make your own Ten Things playlist. The lyrics of the whole song don't need to reflect what you want to tell that person- it can even just be a line or two. It might be more helpful than you realize.
Ten Things (you will need Spotify to open this playlist)
I'm aware that there are 11 songs on that playlist. The first track is Paul Baribeau's song, Ten Things, which was the inspiration behind making it in the first place.
And with that, let the good times continue to roll (and cheer us up)!
