Definite nostalgia, possible plot loss


Oh Dears…you had one single that did well a long time ago.

Stuff always happens in the music world.  Record Store Day has announced this year’s offerings, Lollapalooza has announced this year’s lineup, other people have announced things relating to this year…yada yada.  I’ve been slacking lately on TPS though – the blog itself, and social media.  I kind of know why, but I kind of don’t either.

TPS is three!


These lil’ champs read it every day.  Lil’ champs.

Today is The Perfect Scene’s third birthday.  This blog debuted February 11th, 2014 with stuff I no longer do and references that no longer exist!  It also has remained pretty true, and I think (hope?) gotten a lot better.

The old posts that were broken are fixed!

No getting in the sea just yet!

Earlier this week I decided it was time to fix the old posts that had their format broken when TPS moved from Blogger to WordPress.  After spending hours per day on it since, the job was finished this morning.  So, why not go back and (again) read one or 10 or 189?

Old posts had their format messed in the switch from Blogger to WordPress, so…gotta finally fix that

What I feel like doing instead.

Back in the spring TPS moved from Blogger to WordPress.  No posts were lost during the migration (which is great because some sites do lose stuff), but most of the old ones had their formatting break.  It’s not a huge deal, but it still looks bad for anyone who goes back that far.  I did a couple of page’s worth back when it happened, but I need to do the rest…yeah, that’s the right thing to do right?

This post brought to you by TPS being a total sellout

“Yeah F you man, your older posts were way better!!!1!1”

Not long ago I was approached about doing something that I had to give some thought to.  When I remembered many blogs (and otherwise) do it I thought what the hell, it’d be nice to grow TPS’ monetization potential considering the work I put into it.  So, soon you’ll occasionally see something new here: sponsored posts.

The art of drowning…while trying to honour branding AND correctness

Art of Drowning...
It does feel spooky sometimes…and lights a fire inside!  (Sorry not sorry.)

When you really get into the nuts and bolts of writing, it can be pretty tricky.  As a music blogger there are things to consider beyond just regular proper writing, and in all honesty sometimes it’s a pain.  Some of it is just a general learning curve we all go through, but some can be avoided just by how the artist handles it.

TPS is on the ‘Press

Blogger TPS
Since The Perfect Scene debuted in February 2014 it’s been on Blogger.  Google’s platform is user-friendly and detailed, and really could still serve this site just fine.  But, in the ongoing effort to make TPS better I eventually decided it was time to take complete control of the back end.  That said, welcome to the all-new WordPress TPS!
