And so it ends...

Friends, alas I just got a new job and I'm moving to Japan, so the blog is coming to an end. I've had a great time over the past year and a half, it's been awesome sharing music with all of you. I started this back in September '07 to share some albums with friends back home while I was at school on the East coast, and then it just sort of exploded. Based on the statistics from the site, over 153,000 people have visited, and what I'm most proud of are the 18,000+ that are returning visitors. Take care of yourselves, and maybe I'll unknowingly meet some of you at a show.

Thanks for visiting, and all the support. If you find a great band or album, make sure you tell everyone you know. Oh, and go to shows, and buy vinyl.

-Lucas

PS:
The blog will be up for a few days, so grab what you want.

When you say "The blog will be up for a few days, so grab what you want.", do you mean you're gonna delete the blog? Leave it up I say, even if you won't update anymore. Don't let all that uploading go to waste!

Well thanks for the music and all the best for your career. :)

i've been tuning in to this blog since september and have to say you've definitely helped to enlarge my music collection. and you're reviews are always honest and genuine, without being tainted with genre bias or snobbery. thanks for all the recommendations, and good luck for the future.
