The third Soft Spectrum album has been released, and like its predecessors, it's a showcase for chill, a genre -- at least, I think it's a genre -- that I have found welcoming in the past. The series is presided over by Kyoga, who has composed some stuff that makes the hair stand up on the back of my neck.
Also like its predecessors, it's a charity affair: the $5 they're asking for the ten tracks will go to Bronies For Good. (As is my wont, I tossed in slightly more.) If you go for this sort of thing, here's where you get it.

If I'm interpreting the new status indicators correctly — and who says I am? — I got to my 1000th favorite this weekend. Assuming I'm running my usual pace, this means I've read somewhere around 1800 stories in the last 27 months. (Blatant selection bias: I'm far more likely to start a story if something about it suggests I'll want to keep up with it.)
The most recent addition is flawed and would benefit from a proofreader, but the premise — earth pony seeks a mechanical means of flight — appealed to me.

So I tried out knighty's new stats suite, and I'm not sure which surprised me more: having had 21,750 chapter reads, or being in the top 3000 (barely) in follower count. Neither of these is a world-beater, exactly, but I still suffer from How Can Anyone Bear To Read This Stuff? Syndrome.

The major disadvantage of the lack of pegasi out here on the plain is that we're basically stuck with what the air masses in the sky end up doing, and what they're doing at the moment is giving me 50-mph winds and rain approximately the velocity of an automated car wash, albeit without any of that Anti-Spotting Rinse stuff. (Well, that and the tragedy of leading a pony-less existence, as I did for the first 57 years of my life.)
If you don't hear from me for a rather long while, assume I've been spun into orbit by the whirling winds.
