Well friends, it seems that the almighty dollar wins and the Katman loses.
I just cannot keep up with the escalating price of new cigars.
The market is out of control. Manufacturers are foisting subpar cigars at ridiculous prices on the smoking public.
I have around 50+ cigars left in my humidor and probably a couple weeks, or so, of reviews left.
When they are gone, so am I. I won’t be buying cigars even for my own use.
I won’t shut the site down but I won’t be adding new reviews except when the occasional opportunity arises and my sponsors send me cigars.
It’s been a fun ride.
I plan to focus on my music. There is a realistic opportunity in the making that I might find myself on the road traveling with my musical partner of 35 years, Rick Tunstall.
Rick lives in Virginia and he has sent me digital software so I can record my bass lines for his songs on my computer. At the moment, Rick has over 24,000 Likes on his Face Book page which seems to have captivated an Asian market.
This is a photo of both the software that allows me to turn my computer into a complete recording studio and the red box is an audio interface that allows me to hook my bass up to the system. It is a simple version of the big stuff but then I only need to mix my bass line, not mix the songs:
We are currently working on a second CD and fingers crossed that we can hit the road this summer, or fall, to promote the albums.
I want to thank everyone for their support and friendship. I’ve made some great friends through my site that otherwise would never have happened.
Today is not goodbye.
Just wanted to give you a heads up that I will be directing my focus elsewhere very soon.
I will miss it terribly. And expect the first few months, without cigars, a little like detoxing.
I want to thank the wonderful manufacturers and online stores that supported me. They are a rare breed who got the Katman. Good people, all.
I will cherish the next few weeks I have left to bring you my reviews.
So all the best to you and remember there are some great reviewers out there. They won’t tell you about the debauchery of rock n roll, but they are very good at what they do.
