Navigational Notes

Everybody: It hasn't escaped my notice that in recent weeks (or longer), the tendency has been for Zoilus posts to consist of meaty facts about Toronto events and little about the larger music world. There's a reason for that: First, there's a lot going on here; and, second, my attention is mostly on other projects and I'm not writing the discursive excursions and reactions to general musical issues that give the site its meat. The latter situation will change when the book is done, but that's a couple of months away. But in general, I feel this site fills two functions, one for folks who live here and one for those who don't. Upcoming is a redesign that will make it work better for you, wherever you are. Meanwhile, a little patience while we conceive that hybrid structure. And thanks for sticking around either way.

I echo John - the combination of the two is exactly what stands out as being so great. Thanks and keep it up!

Thanks for your reaction, John. The plan is to do it in such a way that you'll be free to read the site the way you do now, but also have the option of reading it without the local event announcements etc. But it'll never consist of treating all local music as if it's only of local interest.

Please don't segregate the local from the global! I don't read all the local posts thoroughly, but some of them I do, and I'm always happy they're there, always interested.

John Oswald may be a local musician to you, but he's a global musician to me. And one never knows when someone will cross from one to the other for someone.
