I'm a fag! I'm a fag! I quit the blog!

I'm bumping this back up to the top again. I ended up posting a couple of frivolous posts after this one, but then I got sick of looking at them.

For a number of reasons, most of them about as small and pissy as you could imagine, I've decided to pull the sheet over this blog for now. I'm not planning on going away for good; I'll still keep reading all of the other blogs that I like, and it's a pretty good bet that I'll return with a different project (note: new project is now up) a few months down the road.

I'm going to keep this site like it is now indefinitely-- mostly for the sake of the archives and the outgoing links, so that people's Google searches and Technorati ratings don't get screwed up ('cuz Lord knows that's so damn important).

If you came here looking in particular for a story or a photo, like of a Russian player or some stupid band or some shit like that, just enter the search words you're looking for in the box next to the orange "B" up top, and whatever posts contain those words should pop up. Just no more "Sidney Crosby is gay" searches, or I'm gonna start crackin' skulls.

If you're new around here and want to get a look at what all the lack of fuss was about, I've compiled a sample mix of 20 or posts from the last few months of the blog, which you can browse by clicking here.

The March '07 archive is particularly awesome (that's dry humor, bub-- see what you missed?), so you can check that out if you want, also.

UPDATE - Can't Stop The Bleeding and Jerseys and Hockey Love had some nice words regarding my demise, and for that I thank them.

A note of explanation for our Canadian readers: Sometimes in Sick Teen, if Norb used a band photo after one of the guys in the band had quit, he'd draw a word balloon above that guy's head reading "I'm a fag! I'm a fag! I quit the band!" The above is not an original Norb word balloon, but my own slavish imitation.

EDIT 1/29/10 - And now Photobucket made me take it down! Ha ha!
