Hey guys, Euge here. Here is where I talk about why there’s been no new podcasts for a while, and to be fair, it is 100% my fault. So let’s go back a bit.
Earlier this year, … well no, a while ago, I have been sort of thinking about moving to take advantage of some opportunities to do some work beyond music, with students and universities, with non-profits and charities - to kinda take the skillset I’d learned in doing music and being full-time, independently creative for the past 4 years and try to see if I could do more than that. This past year, some opportunities arose that I had to consider; while at the same time, I was dating someone in the Philadelphia area. The stars aligned, and I decided I should move.
What started as a move where I had the full intention of continuing the Gossiper with Chris in some capacity, turned into a summer of having a hard time locking a place down, requiring me to be away from home for longer than I originally intended. I also had a slew of shows across the midwest and northeast to do. And I also was trying to live some semblance of a normal life between home and my friends and my girlfriend and my family. Add on top of that, my movers quit on me about 3 weeks from my move date, and well, things kinda tended to fall apart.
So we haven’t had a new podcast, and I’ve barely had time to even sit down and write this (I just got back from four days at Otakon, where I did two shows, judged a talent contest, did a panel, and tabled all weekend). All the while, meeting people on the road, seeing people tweet about the new season (which I haven’t even watched), and wondering where we are, and why we’ve been gone. It’s my bad. And I’m sorry for that.
I’m sorry to Chris too, because I know that a weird, unbreakable bond that in many ways, the podcast formed has been unceremoniously cut short because of my own needs, wants, desires, or life situations. I miss doing the podcast. I don’t want to rule out that we will never do it again in the future. Just right now, I honestly can’t handle the responsibility of recording it, editing it, and having any kind of a headspace to do anything except get my home in order, get started on a ton of new projects for some things I truly believe in, and try my best to be healthy in body and mind while this huge transition happens.
So where does that leave us? I’m not honestly sure. We still have your sketches. We still have our archives up. You can still follow me and Chris on twitter and talk to us. And we still love loving things.
Just right now, the podcast isn’t going to be around. I’m sorry for that. I truly am. I miss you guys, and we miss talking about stuff.
So that’s the update. Hope this answers some questions, and sorry I couldn’t get this kind of a post up earlier.
