Housekeeping: A Brief Note of Minor Import

ShareShare on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterShare on Google+Share on LinkedInEmail this to someoneShare on StumbleUpon

Serving as this here rag’s editor and director of day-to-day operations couldn’t possibly be a better hobby-gone-wild. For the past 17 months it’s truly been a pleasure to serve as a part of your regular team of Internet sherpas, but man is this shit time-consuming — you people are fucking relentless. So as my real job heaps more and more occupational shenanigans on my proverbial and literal desks, I must make like Johnny Savage the day before Red, White & Blaine and unexpectedly quit the show.


Hidden Track, however, will thrive without the dead weight. The prolific and hyper-informative Scotty B will take the reins as editor beginning tomorrow morning, and several clever writers have already joined the cause. It’ll be business as usual at HT HQ, and I know you’ll continue to enjoy the chicanery contained on these pages. Well, that’s if you enjoyed it in the first place, which, well, you never know. I’ll be posting here and there, but today I turn in my keys to the store. So stick around; there are good times ahead. Onward and upward, folks. You’ve all smelled terrific.

    So does this mean the return of Slack LaLane? Or will we really have to find someone else to kick around?

    Ace, you will be missed. I have enjoyed your thoughts over the past year and a half. For your sake, I hope you are not the Craig Kilbourn of Hidden Track.

    You the man Ace. Time-consuming huh? I would have gone with the ever popular, “Going to Med School”, but whatever… 🙂

    This is like that time I came home from school and walked in on Daddy and someone who wasn’t mommy having sex. Only worse. First Slack Lalane and now you’ve up and left HT. How disappointing. Good luck, keep The Sly Oyster posted on where we can read you.

    Choosing some ol’ dude name Lou over your faithful flock of readers? Man, get your priorities straight.

    In all seriousness, thanks for the laughs over the past year and a half. I know we will be in good hands with Scotty B. Lookin’ forward to HT 2.0
