Fuck. Maybe shutting the site down May 11 is a good idea, seeing as it’s happening just in time for the return of Disturbed.

Enabler Announce Album, Meek Is Murder Dates

Enabler

In 20 days, this site goes bye-bye. If you were to ask me how I feel about that, I’d say “Bummed.” Sure, it’s a lot of work to run a blog. But some small part of me foolishly figured I had actually amassed some sort of a small fan-base, but when push came to shove, […]
