Well, well, well. We nearly let the day slip past without acknowledging an unexpected milestone: Slicing Up Eyeballs, the very website you’re now perusing, turned 10 years old today. With an asterisk, of course, considering that ill-fated hiatus we took from May 2015 to February 2017.
Just a quick note for you “Dark Wave” listeners out there: This weekend’s usual Sunday night show is being pre-empted by New Year’s Eve programming on Sirius XM’s 1st Wave, but we’ll be back on the air with the darker side of classic alternative at the usual time in the New Year, starting on Jan. 7.
We end the year at Slicing Up Eyeballs HQ by looking back at the past 12 months — or in this case, the 10½ since our relaunch — to see what’s been of most interest to you, our readers. In 2017, that included news about R.E.M., Morrissey, The Cure, Depeche Mode and more. Check out our full Top 20 list right here.
Hello. If you’re a regular visitor to Slicing Up Eyeballs, you may have noticed that the site had been down for more than a day, and has now reverted to an old, pre-resurrection backup. We’re currently working with our hosting company to get things fixed.
As mentioned yesterday, Slicing Up Eyeballs founder/editor Matt Sebastian is guesting on the Rockin’ the Suburbs podcast, and following Monday’s discussion of this website and ’80s college rock, come today’s episode about “Dark Wave,” the show he hosts every week on Sirius XM satellite radio’s 1st Wave channel.
Slicing Up Eyeballs founder/editor Matt Sebastian is the guest on today’s episode of the excellent Rockin’ the Suburbs podcast, a five-day-a-week show hosted by Jim Lenahan and Patrick Foster that’s billed as “two (not so) ordinary men talking about their lifelong obsessions with music.”
