So let get get to the big news right away: I’m officially planning on retiring from music reviewing. Yeah, really. I did say before that there’s going to be a time where I’m not going to be doing this anymore and that time is quickly coming. My heart isn’t in it to do this anymore and I want to move on to the next stage of my life, which is making comic books. I’m currently working on improving myself as an artist and writer and I’m developing a comic book that I plan to release sometime next summer or fall. But there are lists that I want to do before I make my retirement official. First is the Worst and Best lists of 2020 that will continue as scheduled. Then, in the first two months of 2021, I will release two final lists and my final posts on this blog: the Worst Number One Songs list and the Best Number One Songs list. I’ll be looking back at 60+ years of Billboard history and put together the best and worst of all the songs that hit number one on the Hot 100. It is unfortunate that I won’t be doing this any longer, but my heart and mindset has shifted to a new passion and I wish the best for the new generation of music reviewers. To longtime readers, I thank all of you for keeping me going this long. As for new readers, well, you got hundreds of posts that you can read up on, so have fun with that.
That’s all the updates I have for now. Stay classy, you lovely people.
