I think maybe we started the site during the decline of interest in music writing and haven't officially shut it down due to the "never say never" factor (Tom still writes some reviews for his reissue site). I think one major thing changed over the last five years, when you're curious about music now it takes a search engine to find an audio sample, often even for arcane items. So ultimately the audience for Outer Music was small and could only be grown by the drive and catharses that I'd mostly spent when I wrote for Exposé and Gnosis. Ultimately I'd have to find some way to relight the pilot and I think the energy I have to do that (not to mention resources) goes to my incense site and other interests now.

I've been meaning to do this for a long time but the thought of having to port all the old blog entries manually was too intimidating. But it ended up not being too difficult after all, so here we are. BTW... I miss Outer Music Diary :( But definitely understand the overload factor... Thanks Mike!
