It is, once again, that time of year where I must say goodbye, but this time it seems for a bit longer than I anticipated. My inactivity as a grad student has gotten my access to the studio revoked, so it seems like this will be more than my normal Brett Favre-esque retirement where I end up coming back next May.
As for the title of the show this week (which is actually my aborted playlist from a few weeks back when my recording interface decided to stop cooperating), kind of shifts the show in the direction I had been anticipating going upon returning next year until these recent developments. Note that it just doesn't have stoner rock/metal/doom, but a variety of metal bands that have used drug-based themes in their music, so it is a much more diverse playlist than I've had in the last 2 years.
As for the future of this podcast, I will be trying with every best effort to maintain an every other week schedule of uploading an archive of old shows from the early to mid 2000's, long before the Gateway to Oblivion, that I have stashed in a drawer under my bed. Should be interesting to say the least.
Keep listening, and I promise to keep going. Hopefully, I'll be back on the air live and with new episodes if/when I pursue my master's degree.
