The Streetlamp Blog - Two years old and still going strong
The Streetlamp Team enjoyed a day out in Glasgow today; visiting some of the exhibitions and events which are part of the Glasgow International Festival of Visual Art. As is our custom, we enjoyed a break from the galleries/exhibition spaces and grabbed a bite to eat in Glasgow's best music venue/vegetarian and vegan cafe The 13th Note. As we dined, under the watchful gaze of the Note's Alex Harvey portrait, the sound of The Smith's Please, Please, Please, Let Me Get What I Want drifted from the jukebox and Gordon, pointing out the Twin Peaks quote above said machine, remarked;
"You know, this pub could have been designed just for me. It's my dream pub."
The above scenario should hopefully paint a picture of almost perfect contentment and, without wanting to be hubristic, I hope you'll agree that The Streetlamp team deserve their moment of fulfillment, as today is the second anniversary of our very first blog post. Since that tentative start, the blog has found its niche among the thronging crowds of music blogs jostling for attention, and has taken off in a way that none of us involved in it could have ever imagined. We have now had around 75,000 individual page views for our home made articles on music, film, art and politics and enjoy comments and encouragement from every corner of the globe. That being so, we'd like to wish ourselves a Happy Birthday and extend a heartfelt Thank You to every one of you, The Streetlamp readers. To help us do that, here's Annalie Prime with a short song:
