Gonna have to shut down

Oh well, the site is breaking, spambots are now attacking the contact form sending nonsense emails 60 times a day, lulu.com has erased the Go For The GOLD projects (yeah I have the source files, but not the motivation to re-upload old books to print for a new stash to sell when there is no reason to), and the site has been inactive for at least most of the last 2-3 years as priorities have shifted, tumblr killed blogs and then promptly shat its own bed, and nobody has read blogs for 10 years, I guess. Anyway, meathaus.com can sign off with “We had a good run.” Thanks for reading!

As a random internet non-robot I would like to say thanks for existing – I discovered some amazing artists via Meathaüs over the years.

There is a WordPress plugin WP2Static that can convert your site to a static site, so the content is all there but no more troublesome spam. Obvs hosting costs would still apply but static hosting might be cheaper.

Just an idea anyway, nothing has to last forever!

I’m so sorry to hear that. Meathaus was one of my favorite blogs. Just so you know, you have a fan in Manila and you’re welcome to our zine shop once we’re all allowed to fly international again.

Thanks Chris! Meathaus was fab! Thanks for all the great art you’ve shared over the years. Wishing you all the best!

P.S. Still haven’t shut down, obviously. Just removed the contact form, killed the store offerings, and so on. So the site still sits, and contemplates itself.

In response to Mag, I’ve been lurking this site as long as I can remember. :/

Thanks, Chris. You’ve given us so much. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

Also, I will pay a monthly subscription if you ever decide to bring the site back. lol
