Shutting off the lights...

Thanks to all of you who made running this site for the past three and a half years worth all the effort, energy, and time I put into it. Hopefully, I've introduced you to some quality music in that time, and you, in turn, have shared good music with others. It only works if it's a circle, after all.

Don't worry about me, I'll keep listening and talking and thinking about my favorite music, just not to an audience of strangers, at least not for a long while. I might show up again down the road, though not at this address ( always left much to be desired), but for now it's time for me to move on and find different things to do with my time. It'll be strange not to have ECEU in my life any more, but I'm convinced that, in the end, it's for the best.

I'll be shutting the doors on this place for good in just a bit, but please know that your comments and emails and community were always deeply appreciated by me, and allowed me to keep doing this even when I felt like I didn't have the energy left for it any more. It was an honor to share my love of music, films, and words with you, and I hope it meant something to at least a few of you as well.

(If you leave me your email address on this post, or email me directly, I'll be sure to add you to my list of people to notify if/when I start up another site in the future.)

So it goes.

I'm sad to see you go. You were my inspiration for switching my blog to only 100% legal mp3s years ago, and I've enjoyed all of your posts (both music and other topics).

If you ever want to write about anything (music, movies, tv, books, whatever) for Muruch, I would be happy to post it. Just comment or email me (addy on my site).

Good luck with whatever you do in the future, and please let me know if you start another bloge elsewhere.

I have purchased Usmle Step 1 from and i am pretty much satisfied from their prices and service. On the top of all, after sale service is unprecedented. So if someone is looking to purchase used books for usmle exam preparation then I would suggest them to check this website.
