It’s a bit quiet around here innit? Unfortunately the pressures and distractions of the real world have rendered me with little time to maintain a decent blog. Running a blog is an order of magnitude harder and more time consuming than I ever dreamed it could be (Cosmo Lee put it far better than I ever could in his recent sign-off). It’s taken me a while to admit it to myself, but The Inevitable Nose is dead. It’s been a magical ride that’s taken me many places, introduced me to countless new people and taught me about writing, criticism, music, life – it literally shifted my worldview. I’ve come a long way, although I still don’t claim to be a good blogger/writer/critic, I’ve got a LOT to learn. I wish I had something more profound to say – something philosophical to sign-off with – but alas, the dimise of this blog was somewhat mundane, and thus so is this epistle. Perhaps in the future I’ll try my hand a blogging again, or whatever new-fangled innovation replaces it.
In the meantime, I’m not disappearing completely. I still love discovering new music and sharing it with other people, I just don’t have the time to write verbose articles on the subject. So, in a Doctor Who style regeneration, I’m going shortform, changing identity (the moniker ‘The Inevitable Nose’ was rather flippantly selected and is something I largely regret doing) and moving to Facebook (and maybe Twitter and some other places). Henceforth I shall be known as The Eschatologist, and I can be found here, please join me.
