I'm still working on the commenting situation -- Disqus is still in place for comments and I'm working with them to re-thread all of my old posts. I'll keep y'all posted, but again: all comments have been preserved, they just aren't in the proper threads.
Meanwhile, I've decided to get rid of the superfluous "extra blog" for yearly lists and will instead continue to update yearly lists on the main site -- each relevant post (from 2005-present) is on the side bar under "Ongoing Yearly Lists."
I'm working on a big (final?) teenpop project for what will basically be my only decade commentary -- more details as events warrant.
I do think I'll cull my Best Albums That No One Else Has Mentioned and post that some time in the new year. Also forthcoming is a hugely insanely massive post on 2004.
