380 albums in 3 years!

December 1, 2018

1001albums

I started the 1001albumsin10years project on December 1st, 2011.

So theoretically, given the domain name, I should have been be up to album 701/1001 by December 1st of this year.

So at 621/1001, I’ve fallen slightly (maybe slightly more than slightly!) behind, but it still feels like the 10 year goal is attainable.

The progress so far:

My vision for the eighth blogging year?

Start getting back on pace!

In the new calendar year, because I’ve been enjoying putting them together & hearing your wordplay-filled results, I’m planning on doing another set of weekly quizzes, Artist of the Week part III!

So once again, starting in January, the goal will be to explore another set of 50 artists over 50 weeks.

And more importantly, each post will feature an “Artist of the Week III” logo by Sarca.

*Spoiler Alert* – I’m sure it will be another magnificent Sarca creation!

Verbalize the Positive

Thank you all for being a part of the first 7 fiscal years of this musical adventure!

    Looking forward to another great year of blogging from Geoff. As Rob Schneider says: “You can do it!!!!”

  5. Nice job and happy birthday my friend!

  6. Dude this is fantastic! You’re doing so well on hearing all of this music! Also, long live the quizzes. Also I was chuffed to see Leonard as a fave in the 80s. As it should be! 😉 Here’s to another year of awesomeness, Geoff-style!

  7. So is this the original 1001 that you are sticking too or will you be adding new albums? Also well done sleeping to things I move around like a moth to a flame

    • My thanks Neil – and yes, it’s the original 2005 edition. So by the year 2021, I’ll be all caught up to the year 2005!

  8. Amazing. 7 years is quite a feat. All the best for year 8, Geoff.

  9. A man with a plan. I’m also listening to various 1001 albums but not as goal-oriented as you. Fine job so far!

  10. I got a sneak peak at Sarca’s logo! It’s gooooood…..
