Four years ago today, we launched This is NOT Greatest Site, the parent site of the Blog-Tick Phenomenon. How much we've grown since then! Now, we are home to more than 400 lyric translations, and scores of articles, both translated and original, about the Japanese music scene. Warm thanks to all our not greatest fans and supporters around the globe! When we started, we had no idea we'd get so big or go so global. We deeply appreciate all your letters, and all your hyper love.
However, as some of you may have noticed, Not Greatest Site seems to have entered into a misty zone where we haven't been updating. Part of the problem is, as a two-person team, our time is limited. I sincerely apologize to all of you whose requests I haven't been able to fill. At the moment, I don't have the freedom to take on any big projects, but I hope to get those requests for individual songs done at some point before the next ice age (who knows, what with climate change and all, that might be sooner than you think!) Currently, Kame and I are working on building a new version of the site, and it's taking longer than usual. But though you may be wondering at this point if we're dream or truth, have no fear, you haven't miscast us. Even if NGS doesn't update, we are not dead, we're simply okaying ourselves to fly high once more. We will be back...just like the Terminator (except cuter.) We're planning on having a brilliant future for future.
In the meantime, what can you do to help us, you ask? Enjoy the blog! Tell your friends about the blog! Become a follower of the blog! Link the blog on all your home pages! Also, if you have any small requests or ideas for things to put on the blog, just drop me a line at themadaristocrat [at] gmail [dot] com. I can't promise I can fill all your requests, but I'd like to provide content that people would like to read. Happy birthday to us!
