This has been a long time coming, folks. I’m sorry to say, but as of April first, 2009, the Van Gogh-Goghs are no more. We’re calling it quits and breaking up. We’ve milked this cow for all she’s worth, and all our yanking won’t squeeze another drop out. We don’t perform, we don’t write, and we don’t update our site (as you may have noticed). We’ve drifted apart as colleagues, collaborators, and even friends. We have newer, bigger, more important things on our plates these days. Adult things: raising our new babies, attending graduate school, running businesses- where are we supposed to find the time for this nonsense anymore? It used to be fun, and now it’s a chore: and that is a sign to stop we can no longer ignore. All good things come to an end, that’s just how it goes. It was fun, we loved ya, now beat it, amscray.
Don’t weep, my friends, we’ll always have Paris. Also, it makes you look like a total wuss.
