Well...

Dear friends, as most of you with an IQ over 17 have gathered, I'm out of blogging since quite some time now. I've totally stopped participating in the share net in all ways and have neglected this blog for good; I even forgot to celebrate its 4th birthday. I actually spend less and less time online, as I find it too exhausting and distracting. I must be getting really old.


The truth is that, putting aside my already busy schedule (see: family life, day job, part-time job #2), I've finally decided to devote my virtually non-existent and oh so precious free time to meddle again with music production. And yes, if the stars are right, even to fulfill a project I have in mind since I was 20+ (aaargh, has it been that long? anyway...) To go along with that, I try to sort out my house, starting from the record collection, a challenge for the brave indeed. Which I'm halfway through btw, yet the hard 50% is ahead of me and I'm sorting vinyl only...

I tried to build a new blog from scratch in order to post my to-be vinyl rips as I had so pompously announced, yet didn't even managed to come to the end of that - too many distractions, so little time. When it came to ripping, I did a dozen of tests; yet, due to a (totally silly) mistake I had to get rid of everything I had recorded - and that was another blow.

And then it just dawned to me that OK, failing always annoys me (I'm that type of guy...) still there is time to do certain stuff and there is time to fold back and gather your strength; to think about your life and organize your space and time, or even to do completely different things. I simply have to sort out my life a bit before I can get back on any track. For how long, I really don't know. After all, Time Is Time, as they say in Zion.

So. I plan on leaving this blog intact, for as long as it takes them (?) to take it down - or until my RS premiums expire for good, which will surely come first. I'll think about what I'll do with it when the time comes. Some links are already off anyway, yet even thinking about digging those CDs out and ripping them... Maybe I'll keep the blog inactive with a possible comeback in mind, maybe I'll just let it rot or just sweep it like a sand mandala.

On the other hand, if someone is interested in running it, in keeping it going, best thing you can do is to send me an e-mail or comment here and we can possibly arrange it. Only serious proposals, as they say in the ads; I may be about to quit this blog, yet I still feel close to it...

So, dear friends. I feel this is not the last we'll hear of each other. Still, since Life has its magnificent twists now and then and we never know where we will land after the ride, I bid you farewell in advance and hope the best for you and your people.

Love Is The Law, Love Under Will.

Understood...completely...you've left your mark.

Others will carry on in your stead.

As someone once twittered:

Watching MTV Cribs makes me feel better about downloading music off the internet.
