Long Overdue: New Blog

I suppose I really should have started a new blog as soon as I started reviewing operas. I wasn't quite cognizant at the time of just how into operas I was going to get, and the extent to which they'd devour this blog here. So, now everything in its proper place. I'm going to delete all the opera posts here (if they're still here as you're reading this), because I've transferred them all (with comments!) to the new blog.  This blog is coming like a ghost blog, but it seems like the best way to do things.

I wasn't sure what to call it: I kind of wanted to go super-minimalistic and just get opera.blogspot.com, but no surprise, that wasn't available. What IS a little more irritating is why it isn't available: somebody started a blog with the subtitle "about operaperformances," but it's totally blank: not a single post.  Operas? Nope. Operareview? Taken. Operareviews? You guessed it. Ultimately, I decided that it would be a good idea to emphasize the fact that mine is in fact the only opera blog on the internet, so it's called The Only Opera Blog. Please enjoy.

Boy, Chick Tracts and Mallard Fillmore, those take me back. I can't believe how fixated I used to be on awful garbage. Maybe I'll revisit one or the other someday out of morbid curiosity. Did you know that Mallard Fillmore isn't even being written by the drunken reprobate Bruce Tinsley anymore? Who the HELL decided that Mallard Fillmore needed to continue, come hell or high water? Though actually, the new version seems...well, I haven't done a comprehensive survey, but not as bad. Only occasionally vaguely right-wing, as far as I can tell.
