It is with the greatest reverence that with this issue, Long Distance Listening Party comes to an end, at least in its current form. Iâ€™ve begun another venture that deserves to be prioritized at this time but hope to continue here whenever I can, especially if that Ween interview ever materializes. So this isnâ€™t necessarily a goodbye to me, just to Long Distance Listening Party.
LDLP has been a big part of my life over the last year. This newspaper has been a platform for me to interview some of my most highly respected artists and musicians and led me to finding therapeutic catharsis through sharing and joking about some of the more difficult times in my life. At its height, it led me to questioning the existence of extra terrestrial life. Also, there was a time when I think I accidentally uncovered a criminal conspiracy but weâ€™ll let that one lie.
To put it more succinctly, this column has been a means for my own personal growth, both to document it and enable it.
Okay now, Iâ€™m going to turn off my â€śPresident resigning after a sex scandalâ€ť voice and talk with you all about some music one last time.
Iâ€™ll leave you all some advice: next time you see an article titled something like â€śTopanga Elementary to take Children on Thanksgiving Charitable Field Trip to Skid Row,â€ť maybe check to see if the piece was written by me before writing your local councilman.
I love you all dearly. If youâ€™d like to keep an eye on my next project, I invite you to follow me on Instagram @mygumsarebleeding.
