Milestones and Other Assorted Goodness

So wow, we just hit 70,000 hits today. That’s like, alot. I know it’s not really a milestone, but it feels good to know that other people actually read this, because I know I cant refresh my computer quick enough to get that many views. I just really wanted to say thanks to everyone who reads this here blog, and everyone who has helped us so far. I really would like to give a special thank you to Derek of GWFAS (and he’s going to be surprised that I thanked him because I give him endless shit). He really got me into all sorts of new music, and I owe alot of this to him, even though I never credit him.

This post really has no meaning other than to really thank all of you for consistently reading All Things Go and leaving the comments. The comments really help us make decisions about bands to post and what you’re interested in, so please leave more of them. It’s also nice to see where you all are coming from, so I might add a frappr. If you have any suggestions as to possible changes or additions to this here blog, let me know in the comments or by sending an email to allthingsgoblog@gmail.com. We also need more suggestions for Themed Thursday, so get to brainstorming.

Also, since five of the six of us (all but Adrian) are seniors at the same high school, we will all be going on a “senior project” for the last two weeks of school (May 22nd-June 3rd), and our project is All Things Go. We will be going to see as many shows in the DC, Baltimore, Philadelphia, and New York area as we can in those two weeks, and will be aggressively writing here at All Things Go. If any of you know of any good shows we can’t miss in those areas, please let us know through the comments. Also, we will be having a contest coming up soon, so get excited for that.

AND, just in case any of you were interested, we have all made our college decisions! Everett will be attending the fine institution of Williams College. Ryan will join forces with Derek at the University of Virginia. Austin will explore the west coast at USF (San Francisco, not South Florida). Alex will be kickin’ it with the indie kids over at Bard, and yours truly will be freezing his ass off at the University of Wisconsin. We will keep the dream alive.

Thanks again from all of us at All Things Go, and keep reading. It boosts my ego like none other.

-Zack

    You guys are awesome, congratulations on all your college acceptances and on just being ridiculously adorable. And you guys did a cute job photoshopping me into the bottom of that pyramid, because I of course would never let myself be involved in such an embarassing situation.

  2. Austin! says:

    Derek…dont front, you totally were in love with that pyramid

  3. Anonymous says:

    aww how sweet. I followed links over from GWFAS, so you’ve got Derek to thank for that too! I love reading all the interactions between you lads. oh and the music, well that’s just a bonus..

  4. Everett says:

    awh yeah i’m at the top of the pyramid

  5. Alex says:

    Man sometimes we really do stupid things… What ever happened to the rest of those pictures?

    good to know ATG has a soul

  7. Alex says:

    Oh we have a soul alright. But in reality it is much more twisted and dark than anything you could possibly want to think of. I shit you not.

    And really Zack already said it on our behalf, but once again thank you all for reading. It makes me feel important and want to keep on living just a little longer… Sike! I’m not suicidal, just sad.

    Sunset Rubdown- May 23rd in Philly

  9. Ryan says:

    Anyone notice that I’m not in the picture….Or that i really don’t post often…..Or that i don’t have a very diverse taste in music. My bad y’all. I’ll get more free time soon.

  10. Adrian says:

    On a completely random note…does anybody remember Yikes pencils? They were crazy!

  11. Derek says:

    Hahaha Adrian, Yikes! were the shit. I liked the erasers too. But yeah, those were some crazy-ass pencils. It’s comments like these that are why I keep you around (that and the copious amounts of HJs).

  12. Austin! says:

    i love me some Harold Jordans.

  13. Ian says:

    Thanks guys for introducing me to some awesome music… The indie scene in South Africa is so fuckin’ small that you’re really my only connection to what’s going on over there.

  14. Tom says:

    keep up with the good work. you’re one of the great new blogs i regularly read.

    one suggestion: more mixtapes. i love those kind of things.

  15. Monica says:

    well that’s damn awesome boys. 70,000 and we all know it won’t stop. this music-blog thing is blowing up, but you boys will always be my home page.

    congrats on the college acceptances. college is the best time of your life, have fun.

  16. brian says:

    Congrats on coming to UW! You won’t regret it, it’s the perfect combination of top-notch academics, a crazy social scene, and loads of great sports. Not to mention the fact that it’s surrounded by loads of water. It’s a great city with loads of things to do. You’ll frequently hear students and alums say that there is no other place they’d rather have gone to school.

    If you want to start following the Madison music scene a little before the fall, check out Muzzle of Bees. Ryan runs a tight ship.

  17. mjrc says:

    it’s really pretty scary how much i like the same kind of music as you boys. but it’s the great way you write about stuff that i love the most. keep it up!

    oh, and i’d definitely second that sunset rubdown recommendation.

  18. Amanda says:

    all i know is the walkmen which sound be good. thanks for makin this website its how i update my itunes i can’t tell u how much my music has changed in the last years and you guys really help

  19. Anonymous says:

    sorry, but i just MUST know. will you guys be updating the blog nextyear from college? if not, i may just have to find a new music blog. GASP!

  20. Anonymous says:

    Thanks for the music guys! Keep in the good work!

  21. Alex says:

    I am willing to bet lots and lots of money that we will continue to update while we are in college. If not, I am going to force us to start a Counter Strike/WOW group so that we can continue our wacky and crazy times together.

  22. Jimmy says:

    Your senior project is spectacular. Enjoy college, it’s a bitch if you don’t get the work done. 😉
