The End

This is the end of the Hydrogen Cafe. I don't really have the motivation or the muse to do it anymore. Thanks to everyone who listened and to all who made such positive comments over the years.

Sad to hear that, but thanks for all what you did in the past. I've been one of the silent followers of your output and always enjoyed it.

Sad news, but I understand you were thinking this for a while and don't blame you if the ruse isn't there. This blog was one of my major inspirations to make ambient mixes myself. I hope you keep it online so at least fans can remember your efforts and make new ones. :)

Really sad news. I really liked your mixes and was really looking forward to "Music for Stargazing Vol 3". But I understand your position and just wanted to say thanks for everything. :(

I'm saddened for sure. As, like one other stated, your 'Music For Stargazing' series was just great. I really enjoyed what you did, and I thank you for sharing it with us!! Good luck with your endeavors.

This is such a shame. I first started listening to this blog when i was 17 and it was mostly responsible for getting me into ambient music. 'Book Of Dreams' is an amazing mix i still listen to and remember. 'A Perfect Rainy Day Thinking of Old Memories'
is still in my 2 gig mp3 player today!

Thankyou for the many fantastic mixes over the years.

Thank you so much for all of the beautiful, deep and wonderfil mixes.

I listen to them often.

Be well and be happy in whatever you do in the future.

Damn. Sorry to hear it. Hadn't been back here in awhile since there weren't any current updates. You, Low Light Mixes, and Sleepbot have made me spend a ton of money on CDs that I probably would have never heard.

You say it's the end. Well here's hoping after being away from it for some time you find the strength and drive to do it again. You really did some stellar mixes and I appreciate all of your hard work.

As they say "Everything that has a beginning... has an end." But that end is a new beginning as well. Here's to you... looking forward to some day hearing your mixes again. Thanks...

I once pay for a cup of coffee, like $20, but the coffee was delicious, it was so delicious that I almost cry when I finish ;D

I wish you all the best.

l feel like l am talking to the ghost in the machine,you may never see this post but l had to say thanks for the very fine mixes and wish you well ...may the star always shine in your backyard

Devin said...

I, like many others have followed this blog for years. I've checked in on it from time to time, always enjoying your work.

But this time...to see it long gone, makes me feel like I missed something beautiful passing in the night.

Your mixes helped me write when I could not and hope that someday I would produce something as fueled organically as your work.

You will not be forgotten,

Devin

tonepoet said...

I still check back here sometimes in hope that you are once again posting amazing mixes. We miss you!

Alex said...

I remember getting into your mixes, you really helped me get into a lot of different music that I wouldn't listen to in a million years. It helped me through some tough times and then some. Here is for hoping that one day you will continue to do what you do because judging by the other comments, we all appreciate your work. While I didn't check your blog every day, I did a few times a year and I just found out about all of this; I will continue to do so hoping that I will get lucky. Whatever happens, you and this blog will not be forgotten.

Farewell,
-Alex
P.S. For now!!

Had my iPod on shuffle and "The Dharma Bums" came across. What a good mix. Miss your work and I hope you're still doing well.
