    Friday, April 10, 2009
    I have an announcement to make:

    My life has experienced quite a number of changes over the last few months. Some are drastic, some are tragic; all of them have had a profound impact on my life. I am not the same person I was a year ago; heck, I'm not the same person I was two months ago. I see life in a different way now; things that once meant a lot to me, they don't hold quite the same excitement and enthusiasm.

    That's the case with this particular website. There's a reason I've not updated in quite some time, and part of it has to do with a general unhappiness with the whole concept of what this website was. It started off as an interview-only website, but then it wasn't. The reasons for that, we won't go into. But suffice to say, my affections for what I was doing here have changed. It wasn't intentional; these things just happen.

    So that's why I've decided to retire this site. Seems like it's already passed, honestly.


    But today's Good Friday, and with the tragedy of the day comes the hope of tomorrow. Apt, this day, because I have not stopped writing. In fact, I just created a brand new site, with a different focus, a different state of mind, and one that represents the common theme that has prevailed through PPR and Mundane Sounds: my profound love of music. This website will go live on Monday, May 4, 2009, and I will announce it that day, and will hope to see you there!I'm excited about it, and I hope you join me for it. It's a different sort of thing, and I think you will like what I am doing.

    So please check back here on Monday, May 4, 2009, and I hope you have a wonderful Easter weekend. Thank you for investing your time with me over the past decade. Has it really been that long?

    Love,
    Joseph Kyle
