Yes, it’s been a long time, hasn’t it? But here we are, at the end of all things as far as Right Thinking from the Left Coast is concerned…at least in its current iteration. I simply can’t let it go without one last respectful music thread.
This site has not only brought me tremendous enjoyment through reading and debating, but also numerous friendships. For those of you who don’t already stay in touch with me on social media, I do hope you’ll come around eventually.
More than that, I can’t say. For two reasons: 1. I’m not very sentimental and 2. I don’t have the sense that it’s really all over. We simply enjoy
conversing in good-natured fellowship hating and haranguing the shit out of each other too much. We’ll see what comes next.
Moving on, growing up, and change are all a part of life. It’s really up to you if you want to commemorate the end or the possibility of a new beginning. Sure, all things must come to an end but even in death there can be rebirth. We can have some songs about that. This doesn’t have to be a tear-jerker thread!
Also, please feel free to post music from those many artists we lost in the last year.
God bless you all and thank you for reading, debating, and even influencing me over the years. You fuckers.

I sincerely hope I didn’t forget anyone in my legendary carelessness, though I’m sure I totally did. Hit me up with a “hey, dickhead” in the comments and you’ll be rightfully included. Unless I disagree with the “rightful” part.
