The End of the Destruction

Filed under: Blog Status,Blogosphere — Robert @ 11:06 am

Even the most prolific of bloggers grow weary and seek rest, and it is my sad duty to inform you that Amp, Colfax, Daran and myself have reached that point. After a series of e-mail conversations, we have decided to retire this blog and pursue individual projects. Herewith a rundown of the changes, and the roles we will be playing from now on.

Although Off Colfax plans to still file the occasional dispatch, he will have little time to write for blogs, having signed on with the 4th Infantry Division as an embedded reporter for the Denver Post. OC will be heading to Iraq in the next couple of months (travel permits and his security screening permitting), and we will be doing a fundraiser for his body armor, new laptop, etc., in coming days. Keep your eyes peeled.

Ampersand has indicated that he plans to give up writing and activism in favor of developing his growing network of hardcore pornography sites. While I disagree strongly with his participation in this industry, of course, I am always glad to see a left-liberal becoming more involved with the business community and learning how things actually operate. I forecast happy days of Republican-voting, tax-decrying, and lazy-worker-bashing from Amp.

Daran, of course, is getting married and says that his new commitment to sharing everything in his life with a woman will not leave him the energy to continue writing. Best of luck to the Darans!

As for your humble correspondent, as many of you know, while writing and computers have been hobbies and avocations of mine for many years, it’s always been musical theater that holds my heart. I will be moving with my family to New York City to break into show business – and of course, I’ll be blogging about it! Details on the new blog site to come.

It’s been a wonderful experience writing for all of you good people, and I know that all of us will miss the interactions and discussions we’ve had here. Thank you for your past support, and God bless you, every one!



  1. I guess this will be my last comment on this blog, then. I will be lobbying to be recognized as the new ruler of the planet Krull, myself.

  2. I…
    No, my ironometer is not working this Monday morning. I cannot tell how much of that was tongue-in-cheek. So, goodbye…
    I guess…

  3. The plausibility of the first two scenarios — an embedded reporter and a porn king — those I could accept. But the musical theater thing was just too much. My own modest ambition? … to wander off and join the circus, of course!

  4. Oh, and um, BTW, did anyone notice the date of the post?

    Brutus wandered off to join the circus!

  7. April Fools!!

    I was with you until you said Amp was going to start hardcore porn sites.

  8. Highly humorous that folks believed my section.

    Highly humorous indeed.

    However, I would have it said that I would rather be embedded with one of the Coast Guard cutters stationed in the Gulf. That would be an interesting assignment indeed.
