Save the kitten!

I hate to resort to threats, but it's come to this. SoundRoots has been receiving a record number of hits and downloads. At the end of June, we had to take some content offline because we'd hit our bandwidth ceiling. That pains us, because we're here to help spread the word about global culture, specifically new music that has crept into our hearts. And just reading about the music isn't fun, I know.

That's not the bad part, though. We can always get more bandwidth, or find another way of hosting the files. The bad part is that as hits have skyrocketed, comments have plummeted.orange kitten soup - photo ©Scott Allan Stevens Dropped like a wet emu tied to a rock that's duck-taped to an anvil. And that, my friends, is most discouraging. We understand that some visitors may not have time to respond to the offerings on SoundRoots. But others of you, we're sure, really care.

Now you have even more reason to care. Because if we don't start getting comments by the end of the weekend, it's kitten soup for everyone. Really. We're not kidding.*

So take a moment to leave a comment. Tell us what you like, what you don't like, what you'd like to see covered on SoundRoots, or why you think our complete failure to even mention Shakira's name somewhere in our 500+ postings over the years is a travesty of the highest order.

Otherwise, well...I'm cutting up some potatoes and carrots right now.

*Okay, we are. But only about the soup. And only because we're vegetarian.
