150 posts!

We’ve hit 150 posts on MBF!

We’ve come a long way since April 7th, 2010.

Sasha’s first post was about Arcade Fire’s music video for Neighborhood #1 – Tunnels. My first post was chock-full of songs that I was crazy about. Since starting the blog, I’d like to think we’ve evolved. We went through a name change (née Songs From Last Night, a name chosen by dear Cary) and a few background makeovers worthy of a bad TLC show. Of course, I have lots of dreams for the blog in the future.

Someday soon, I’d like to host mp3s on our own server instead of relying on the links of others. I’d also like to have a personalized header instead of that big, bland text – it’s like leaving your bedroom walls painted white after you move in. No tanks. I’d also love to have enough readership to make a little dent on Hypemachine. I hope we can become the little hobbyblog that could!

I’m excited to see what this guy has whipped up for our avatars. I requested to be drawn with a lion’s pelt or a bowtie – I think that stems from my secret desire to be a member of MGMT.

To celebrate, here’s my favourite track of the moment:
MP3: Hello – Martin Solveig feat. Dragonette

Cheers, Sasha. Here’s to 150 more!
