July 19th, 2000-January 2nd, 2014

For over 13 years, My Big, Black Cock was the story of Scott Crawford, the funniest man alive. (They killed the last one.) Along the way, it’s been some other stuff, as well. The site was formally retired on January 2nd, 2014. but left up in its original form for about three years after its retirement, perhaps as a cautionary tale, perhaps because I was resistant to self-censorship or most other types of censorship. What I ended up deciding recently was, that, while I would never deny things I wrote, said or thought when I was younger and had less empathy laying around, I also don’t want someone who’s currently in that state coming across something from this site, without the benefit of context, and deciding it’s the greatest idea anyone’s ever had, when I feel very differently about a lot of what’s been said here over the years. I know who I was, and I’d never seek to bullshit anyone about who or what that was, or deny the things that person got wrong. On the other hand, I’m not really jazzed about continuing to put the ideas of younger, not-quite-as-wise me out into the world, where people can identify and empathize with them, without knowing that I might not still do so, or knowing where I stand on these things now. Yeah, I got some stuff right back then, but plenty of it was seriously cringeworthy, too. So, in light of all that, I’ve taken everything down except this final message.

It is possible that some more of what was written here may re-appear at my current site, scottcrawford.org, as I get around to re-reading it (most of the band interviews are already available here), but I’ll tell you, on my first pass through it, while it seemed like a good idea at the time, little of it was of what I’d view as having lasting value.

I should also mention that I am accepting offers on this domain name, but they’d need to be substantial offers at this point. Start by figuring that I’ve been paying for this domain registration and hosting for nearly 17 years, and work up from there.

If you were a friend of this web site, thanks, and I hope that you’re doing well. Come visit me at my current site.
