No real post today, as I have to mentally prepare myself for what's to come next week. "What would that be?", you may ask out loud like a crazy person. Well, read on to find out.
Next week marks the release of the soundtrack to The RZA's directorial debut The Man With The Iron Fists, an album that you two knew I was going to want to write about anyway. To celebrate the occasion, I plan on running Wu-Tang Clan-related write-ups for seven days straight, starting Sunday and ending on Saturday, because that's how a traditional week starts and stops in the United States. I haven't devoted much blog space to the Clan in quite a while (go ahead, check the publication dates of the more recent Wu posts; it's just in your imagination where they seem to own this blog), so I plan on running some reviews for projects that I have gotten requests for over the years (because, yes, a lot of the readers actually do like the Wu-Tang Clan).
Now I'm not stupid; I realize that a lot of you would probably throw yourselves headfirst off of a four-story building before you'll read a week's worth of Wu-Tang Clan-related reviews on a free hip hop blog. Instead of forcing you all to just get over it already and stop being so goddamn dramatic about everything, I actually plan on appeasing you, as well. In addition to seven Wu posts in a row, I also plan on running seven alternate write-ups on those same days. So if you absolutely can't stand the Wu, you have seven other chances to bitch at me regarding my choices and my opinions and my hair or something. If you do love the Clan, then you get fourteen new posts within the span of a week, which is the closest I'll be getting to a "stunt month" for quite a while.
Afterwards, I plan on taking a rest, which I'm sure you'll understand. I don't plan on resting for long, but I will need a recharge.
Now, the albums I plan on writing about have already been selected, so although you may leave suggestions in the comments below, I have no plans on listening to any of them at this time. Just put your trust in me, and everything will be okay. And besides, you'll get more free content that I keep providing for some reason, so everyone wins.
