You’ve probably noticed there were no new posts the past two days. I’ve been deliberating about this blog, trying to figure out where to go with it.
A little over a year ago, I started the euneJeune daily for a few reasons, none of which are still relevant. But, along the way, this blog took on a life of its own.
I’ve taken a few hiatuses and even once or twice declared it over.
But, after thinking about it long and hard, I’m sad to declare this blog will end next Friday, April 30th.
Starting tomorrow, there will be only six more posts. I’ll concentrate my efforts on relaying the important things I’ve learned in the past year, after 230 posts and almost 30,000 hits.
I hope those of you who have loyally visited here everyday will appreciate the last several entries. Again, thanks for reading. Come back tomorrow for some more.

Not much else to say about Bob Schneider but that, lyrically, he’s pretty fucking awesome. Take a listen to “Metal and Steel.”
→ Despite my erroneous prediction, the Philadelphia Flyers are up 3 games to 1 on the New Jersey Devils. I’m headed over to my best friend Harv’s place tonight to watch what I hope is the series clincher between the two teams. Just learned the Flyers job is going to be a bit harder since they’re lost forwards Simon Gagne and Jeff Carter. Let’s hope this isn’t a replay of 2000.
→ Who brought this shit to Philadelphia? I’m dismayed.
