The Future Forecast for United By Rocket Science

Whether you've noticed or not. United By Rocket Science has, for the most part. been inactive for a few months. With Dave spending most of his spare time hauling vinyl to and from record shows and my side project Document Fanzine. There hasn't been much inspiration or initiative to work on this blog. With jobs, family, travel and just plain other things to do. United By Rocket Science has moved from the forefront to the back burner. The decision to delete our Facebook page earlier this year was mine alone and one I personally felt was a long time coming. Over time, maintaining it became a frustrating time suckage that was as frustrating as it was disappointing.

In conversations as recent as today with friend and co-creator Dave G. It seems that his time with the blog has come to a respectful end. And while I leave the door open to any future inclusion on his part. I honesty doubt there will be.  Expecting otherwise on my part would be both unrealistic and selfish. 

In December I will be heading to Japan to spend time with my extended family and hopefully have the opportunity to mentally detox. (No news, TV, Social Media, Distractions) My hope is that, when I return I will be able to make a decision on whether or not to move forward with U.B.R.S on my own. Until then, I'm not really sure I can or even want to. Until then, thanks to the many people who contributed over the years and those who supported us be reading, following, spreading the word and providing us with material to review. It's been a fun four years. James Damion

Be sure to stop in to check out a little side project I've got going called Document. With it's many features and simple layout Document is in many ways a tribute to the print fanzines many of us older kids grew up with. There are interviews, reviews, photography and lots of fun features.
