Closing Time

Updated 10/16/2017: Yes I managed to an update. No I’m not returning regular (not that anyone watches this space anymore to care). But this is my baby. I gotta take care of it :)

I came to an epiphany of sorts. It’s a painful one to be sure.

I’ve been writing online for over 20 years. At it’s peak this Website saw over 5k visitors per day, and a robust commentary. Slowly, by attrition waged on me by responsibilities that has declined to next to zilch save for spammers.

I simply don’t have time to do this anymore. Further as The Armorer once said, the muse has left me.

Unfortunately for me these days I spend more time in airports than I do anywhere else. It’s an unpleasant realization that when I am inspired to write something I’m usually 2,000 miles from a place that I can.

Combined with my fear of losing my job if I post something that someone determines is a “micro aggression”, “racist”, “sexist”, or any other wonderful reason to be offended that the ne’er lived can come up with, and its not worth the efforts.

Will I return? Maybe. Hopefully. I’m still on Twitter (because I can run it from my phone). I’m still on Tumblr as well. I do not intend to shut down the site because…well, frankly hope springs eternal and there is still a lot here to love.

But today’s world is not kind to those who attempt to freely speak their mind, or whom disagree with any status quo. Its a sorry state of affairs to be sure.

Yes I am fully aware that doing this surrenders to the bastards. Unfortunately, I have bills to pay, an education to finish, and a life to lead, and those things are more easily done in my own way out of the *cough* limelight *hack* that is the Internet.

Ciao!

Starting gunshot

As I alluded to earlier I’ll be away most of this morning.

Going to be a very busy day from the onset. I’ll announce the results as soon as I have them. As the esteemed Ralph Waldo Emerson once said “It was a high counsel that I once heard given to a young person, ‘Always do what you are afraid to do.’”. Thusly today I go forth to do what I have been afraid to do thus far.

Meanwhile don’t forget to join me tonight via the RockyTopTalk Podcast as we talk Missouri State University and University of Tennessee Basketball, coaches and other points of interest.

Ya’ll be good, and try not to spill anything on the carpet will ya?

PSA: Transcendental

Got some changes coming round here.

We are in the last week of our Irish dedication, and I hope you have enjoyed our stories of Ireland, as well as the music and quotes from the country as well.

The big change is up in the air. We ask that you cross your fingers. It is something I, at least, have been striving for a very long time to gain a footing within. Because of this, there is a high possibility that our blogging may experience a transition in the near future. Some things are happening in my career that may make blogging either more common, or regular. Currently I try to have posts up by no later than 9 am. That time may shift to extremely early, or conversely extremely late.

However while the transition takes place we may go a few days without a post. We are not quitting. Careers just take precedence you know?

Otherwise continue to expect your College Sports coverage, political analysis, cigar reviews and other material of eclectic interest you have come to know and love.
