First of all, thanks for all the emails, comments and tweets. I especially want to call out the people who compared it to a breakup. I woke up the next day feeling guilty and remembering all the good times ... so yeah, pretty much nailed that one.
Anyway, I missed a couple housekeeping things in that last post. First of all, for the folks wondering about Tommy's next gig, I'll post the info here so people on a desert island right now will know where to go. For everyone else, though, the easiest thing to do will just be following @lawlornfl on twitter. You'll hear it there first. (@bountybowl and @shlynch will echo chamber it too, I'm sure.)
I also spent some time playing with twitter this weekend, since I was pretty much trapped and the walls were closing in (more on that below). I'm honestly not sure what my long-term commitment to the medium will be -- although I'm enjoying reading things from the folks I know here as commenters -- but you may want to throw a follow out to @igglesblog, just in case there's ever news. Please note that unlike the last week of the blog, I'm not foreshadowing anything with this announcement.
Finally, there was a little consternation in the comments about the "real" reason things were shutting down here. Hopefully this is clarifying:
