this one too:
Last night was a real dozer. You should have been here. You'd have been all like, "Dude, stop screaming at your wife at the top of your lungs. It's like 11:30 at night." And then you'd have been all like, "Dude, stop sawing across your throat with that sharp knife." Then you'd have totally been like, "Dude, your wife is beating the hell out of you because you're having a nervous breakdown." Then you'd have been like, "Dude, your wife called your parents and now your mom is on the phone crying and you're still screaming your lungs out that your wife is trying to kill you." Then you'd have gone, "Dude, your nose is bleeding all over the place. And don't step on that glass that fell and broke on the floor when your wife slammed the cabinet drawer to stop you from taking out another knife. And your wife wants to take you to the hospital to be put on suicide watch, but you just keep screaming." That's what you would have done. Hell, if it were up to YOUR ass, I wouldn't have woken up this morning with a busted nose, black eye, fat lip, huge bloody gashes across my neck and what appears to be a bruised bitemark on my shoulder. And I'll have you know that NONE of the wild swings I took at my wife connected, though I did get my hands around her throat and strangle her for a few seconds at one point. The bottom line is that I thought my marriage was coming to an end, and when you have half a bottle of Ketel One in your tummy, that's tough to deal with. But alas, things are better today and my marriage appears all the stronger for its wear. Starlog Diary Entry 05.25.04 - Beam Me Up, Captain Funny-Ears!

This seemed inevitable from the last time I visited his site about a year or so ago. Good to see him getting his life in order.

Arbuckle otm though, up until all that shit started popping up on his Facebook I thought it was all part of his "thing".

right, the whole "I spend way too much time on this" was pretty confusing given that most of his recent reviews (like, last 2 years) have been pretty half-assed and tend to talk more about his dog than the music, which I think explains why he had to take it upon himself to quit
that said I'm sure the site will still get occassional updates. if he's really as OCD as he appears to be he's not just going to let the Fall continue to pump out albums, unreviewed

I loved his reviews, he was one of the first reviewers I ever really read. I even sent in for his band's music, the Low Maintenance Perennials. Really great psychedelic lofi pop stuff, there!

loved his reviews. granted I often came out of them learning more about him than teh record he was reviewing, but it was pure entertainment. i didn't go there for the reviews...I went for the LOLZ.

the thing about his wife just leaving him was a bit of a shocker.
Really. That stuff reads like High Fidelity crossed with La Maman et la Putain
