Well the other day the great Broke Down Engine went off the rails and out of the blogosphere.
But someone was watching carefully, and took some detailed snapshots.
The nefarious privateer known as “Grapeseeder” seems to have a knack for crafting impeccable look-alikes (he even looks like me!). He salvaged a complete map of the treasure from the burning Broken Down Engine, before it disappeared.
He has also offered to let me begin unloading my chests full of musical treasure onto his blog-ship. So links may begin to disappear from this blogship soon (in order to stay afloat in these tempestuous waters), but fear not, they’ll resurface over at the Trout Mask Replicator.
Make sure you bookmark it too, because this post may self-destruct after a period of time, if things get too hot.
You see, Broke Down Engine is just the latest in a series of recent blog-closures. And I’d rather not see the Grapevine be next, because there’s a lot of work in it and I consider it a valuable resource to the community (links or no). So when you don’t see a link you’re looking for, check at the Replicator before asking after it in the comments. It doesn’t pay to advertise pillaged booty.
I hope you understand the writing between the lines here. I know it may be difficult for some of the international readers, but those who want to figure it out will.
Enjoy. I’ll be posting again soon.
