I am sitting here printing out the stats of AOT and PC from this year, and we are definitely down from 2006. The good news is that 2006 was amazing, so being down from that doesn't mean we are done selling water and T-shirts while giving away our music*.
I know that we as Americans are having a rough year.
I know the world is having a rough year.
But, I sincerely hope that we can actually bring forth positive changes in the upcoming year.
