i have an important announcement to make
here is the short: postrockpaperscissors will become a bi-weekly podcast until it is slowly phased out.
here is the long: you read that right, postrockpaperscissors is coming to an end. before you say “noooo!” i figure i’ll explain why.
well, this show has been going on for four years now dating back to when we were on the radio. i had a lot of fun along the way. met a lot of great bands. played a lot of great music. however, every time i wanted to end the show, i had people telling me that i shouldn’t. so i didn’t. i just kept chugging along.
basically, i’m a nice guy. always have been. i don’t like to disappoint others and i love to see them when they’re happy. that’s just the way i’m built. but for once i’m going to have to disappoint someone.
see, this show has been going on for a long time. i’ve done as much as i possibly could with it. it’s time to move on. i have a long list of things i want to do with my life. and i can safely cross this one out and move to the next.
hopefully, you all can understand this. i’m very thankful to all of you who have been listening to the show. it really means a lot to me. and i hope this show has meant a bit to you as well.
i am planning to end the show at episode 30, so don’t go away just yet! that will leave you with 30 podcasts plus a bunch of older shows to listen to at archive.org. hopefully that will suffice.
finally, i hope this podcast ending is not a discouraging note. rather, i hope someone will be inspired to start their own podcast. all it takes is a mic and an imagination. i’m sure you all have the latter. the former isn’t too hard to attain either. so hopefully, with the end of this podcast will come a newer and better one from someone else.
thanks everyone for listening.
Too bad! But I understand. Will ceep listening until the end!
That is sad news. I just started listening and I was really enjoying the episodes.
I’m still only on episode 7, so I have lots of episodes to enjoy though.
Let us rather call this ‘the end of the beginning’ then.
man thats sad news
i totally know where you’re coming from, and it was always inevitable… but dude 😦
gonna be hard without you!
i’m psyched about these final shows now!
Frowny Face. 😦 .
I don’t suppose this means you’ll be doing another sort of podcast/radio show, on another genre of music, does it?
No, i don’t see myself doing anything podcast related after this. At least not in the near future.
I probably should have stated in my post that my ending the show is not due to a lack of interest in the music. I enjoy it just as much as ever i did.
Sorry to hear the show is ending. I just started listening several months ago and really dug it.
However, I understand and wish you all the best for the future.
Maybe you could leave us with places to go too look for awesome post-rock? maybe sites you use, or labels to watch?
maybe other podcasts you’ve come across and would recommend?
please don’t leave us in the dark!
afterthepostrock, thesilentballet, sordo, and captaincrawl are pretty much everything i use. you can check the links section for some other sources you may find useful.
awesome! cheers dude!
Well, all good things must come to an end. You should know that this podcast is EASILY the finest music podcast I have ever encountered. Most other ones have maybe a 15% hit ratio and I enjoy damn near everything you’ve ever played. I just got chills down my spine during the Network sample in Spoken Word.
Best of luck in your endeavors.
