How do you measure 19 years?

I feel compelled to write some reflections on the occasion of Oasis shutting down after 19 years, but it’s hard to find the right words.

I’m 46 now, and 27 when I started this site in 1995, so it seems like there should be some profound summation or insightful conclusion, especially when you consider that this site launched the same year as Amazon, and three years before Google.

But that’s probably why the right sentiment eludes me. The world has changed so much since then, and so much for the better, that Oasis no longer having a major role to play is cause for celebration. Not sadness.

Oasis countdown...

As of today:


Countdown Clocks

At that point, the site will become static.

What this mean is that on December 1 (or thereabouts), you will no longer be able to log in to Oasis. At some point after December 1, the site will come back online as a static record, but probably not completely intact.

Normale

So here we go again, "this one time in Southtown". I think it was a week ago at this point, I was playing in the "studio" and working on new material. It was going pretty good, but nothing mind blowing. Then... "JUST LEAVE!", I stop playing and I'm like "right when I'm playing guitar there's a damn street fight".

Obligatory 'Site is ending' post.

I didn't think I'd feel so surreal about it all, but I guess it just hit me. I wonder how many people are checking in often like I am to watch the site crumble away? Kinda like a viking funeral. Gentle pushes off into the great beyond in a silent blaze or something cheesy and poetic.

9 days and counting

As I right this there are only nine days left until oasis closes. I purpose we all come to this website on the day it closes and right a final good bye entry. Just a suggestion. Does any one know any similar websites? I suppose this website is closing down due to recent rise in popularity of other social media so I'm looking for something similar to replace it ( not that any one could truly recreate such a website)

E T N A H (No Pussyfooting)

I don't really know where to start with this, but I've been doing some thinking about him, going on some walks alone. Ever since around September of last year, I've been getting really negative feelings about and because of him, and I've just been wqlkig them off.
