HI GUYS! I miss you! You are all looking mighty fine from the studio in Hollywood.
Michael, this is a kind post, and yes it was a very exciting moment, as you can see in the smile that’s about to split my head in two. Meanwhile, you remain the man. Let’s stage our own reunion at an OutKast show. It will be very meta. (And with you present, very metal.)
I wasn’t sure how I’d feel visiting the ‘Gum purely as a content consumer these past months, but I can say that, from this side of the divide, this place is as attractive in substance and commitment to the new (and the news) as it is in personality: A site for sore eyes. (You get it.) Contributing changed my life, and being a regular visitor enhances it immeasurably, perpetually.
MISS YOU // LOVE YOU.

Nathan, thank you for this. My only hope that week was that the horrendous incident could be something of a turning point, and the fact that Stereogum was able to be an agent in that made me love it, and what we’ve built here, even more than I’d thought possible. Appreciate your engagement and the note, man. Also, this is my first comment on Stereogum as a Los Angeleno, so here’s to that, and to you.
Thanks, Luke! Appreciate you taking the (endless) time to make it through all of those (many, many) words. Stereogum’s a special space, happy you’ve found it. Best to US!
Cerebrus, this is a vote of confidence I won’t forget — thank you for it. It was always a pleasure.
Much respect in return, donnytilla. It’s hard to stay hard in light of such heartwarming words, BUT I’LL FIND A WAY.
Raptor Jesus! I remember that night, we were standing in front of Beerland. You should know that whenever I’ve seen your handle here, I’ve thought back to that night and imagined your comments being spoken out of your actual head (or how I remembered it) and this was a good thing! My overarching sense impression of you was positive, though I could see the effects of the day you’d had, which is probably why our interaction was on the shorter side. But you’ve always been lucid and a great community member here, so thanks for that, and thanks for being good to me. Godspeed to you, too, dude.
Truth, dreamgalaxies. That JD can take you places (even if at times it only appears like that place is in the red). Thanks for the wishes, also!
Well, I did in this. So that’s a start!
Thanks, Burke. As for revolt, this video gives a sense of what I’ll do there. Appreciate the wishes.
I can think of no higher compliment. Or license for namechanging. Utmost appreciation, KIDCHAIR.
This is a gift, and I won’t abuse it. Thanks, Andrew.
Thanks, homesickalien. And thanks for being particularly cool to me all these years.
Noted, always. Thanks mickrandom26.
Respect, Ben. Cheers. (I could watch this gif forever.)(I have been.)
The Dr. Who gif got me, too. THANKS HAIRY CORGAN!
Sloth, thank man. It has been an age, literally. Thanks for being around, and thanks re: Revolt. I’ll make it something we can all be proud of.
Appreciate this, formerragequitter. I can barely get over Gabe’s leaving myself. Thank YOU for making this site your go-to, and I appreciate the wishes! Promise to make it good.
Respect, tdc. Will try to keep fighting that good fight, I’m happy it’s resonated with you. Thanks!
Broydrick, this is a genuinely moving blurb and your .gif has burrowed its way into my heart. Thank you for the years.
THANKS AMBARELLA, for following along and for being kind. see you on the small screen?
rob, thank you for this, and for reading.
hey michael_, i appreciate the kindness and the words. and it’s worth mentioning that our first comment section interaction, and that week’s Shut Up, Dude, are actually a couple of my fondest memories from my time here, so thank you for that, too.
thank you, old thompson. i appreciate you dusting off the old commenter account. stick around! and watch cable also. appreciate the note man.
R. Jeezy, I did catch your comment, and I will reply there. (I remember our encounter well!)
This is a more general note, though, especially after reading this:
