The Skyline, Still Among the Living [3/10/2008 05:09:00 PM]:
Yeah, of late the future of fabled local music-scenester blog The Skyline Network
was looking a mite shaky, and frankly, folks were worried, including me. TSN's ADR
knows more about H-town's indie-rock-etc. scene than, well, pretty much anybody, and the thought of his well-written, insanely in-depth glimpses of the H-town musical underbelly going away Houmidity
-style left many in a cold sweat. Seriously -- the site's where I
go to find out what heck's going on w/bands in this town (well, there and the Hands Up board
, pretty much).
Thankfully, though, ADR's popped his head back up to let all & sundry know that no, he's not dead, not on paternity leave (as one rumor suggested), and not giving up the site -- he's just been swamped w/The Day Job lately. Which, honestly, is a feeling I myself know all too damn well (anybody remember the "Dark Period" from '04-'05 or so?). I've often wondered how in the hell ADR managed to do the site and the job what pays the bills, and it turns out that, yes, he is indeed human like the rest of us. Kinda comforting, in a way.
At any rate, I'm very glad to hear that Skyline/ADR aren't going to die an untimely death, at least not yet. The site's a serious boon to The Scene as a whole and has done more to kick yours truly in the ass & get my shit together than anything since, uh, well, I dunno what. At any rate, this is good news for all, Rudyard's graffiti be damned.
