So Long, Farewell, Auf Wiedersehen, Adieu: Stabert Out

So, Tuesday will be my last day at the Nashville Scene. I'm heading back to my hometown in the great Yankee north to campaign for Barack Obama until the election. I know you're all reeling from the devastation—who will we call incompetent now?!—but I'm excited about the next step in this crazy little thing called life.

We'll always have the memories: American Idol, people thinking I'm a dude, people bashing me for talking about my feelings—or my tepid embrace of Third Eye Blind. Oh, and there was also the occasional blip of support from out there in the Internet wilderness.

I hope at least some of you have enjoyed what I've done here—or at least enjoyed getting worked up about it—I certainly enjoyed doing it. After the election, I'll be back in town for at least a little while, so don't be surprised if you see the occasional androgynous byline in the pages of the paper. Also, stay tuned for my last hurrah: a double feature on the Drive-By Truckers and The Hold Steady in advance of their show at the Ryman (which I now have to miss for the sake of our democracy, tear).

So long suckas. Be good, and make sure to vote.
