HAPPY 6-MONTH-AVERSARY TO MELTT

MELTT is six months old today! What the heck!!!

As a relative newcomer to DIY, the crap that I’ve learned over the past six months has been INSANITY. I’ve made many a friend, listened to a TON of music I probably wouldn’t have otherwise, and am now working on a whole frickin’ charity thing??? Who would have thought that an adventure I started as something to do on my boring commute could turn into such a big part of my life, right?

There are so many people I’d like to thank for helping me out along the way, and I know I can’t remember all, but here’s a start: Alex from Chatterbot Records for working with me while I was still a lil’ baby music magazine, Henderson & everyone else from The Alternative for being supportive of my various endeavors, everyone at AGL Sounds, Zach from The Platypus for dreaming big and working hard, Save Face for keeping me involved in writing about music when I was just about ready to quit, all of the people I’ve had on to do guest playlists, Future Teens for taking the LEAD DIY signs on tour and generally being great, and Hannah Feldman for keeping me from grounded when I go on big idea-rants. In addition, thanks to Isaac, Bri, Ilana, Jhanna, and Jordi for, like, making awesome music and being my friends.

I did a thing today where I made a playlist that has a song from any playlist that’s been posted on MELTT (it’s 117 songs long.) Here’s who it’s featuring, but honestly I don’t have the energy to link everyone here, so just catch it on twitter:
