The Thomas Crown Chronicles says goodbye

After an incredible 2 plus years, I will be closing The Thomas Crown Chronicles doors for good. It's definitely been an amazing adventure from a simple idea to something bigger than I ever imagined and I've enjoyed (almost) every minute of it. It was never my intent to keep this site open even this long as I knew sooner or later, as it grew, politics would slowly start eating away at the fun (and freedom) of just being Timbaland fans. Despite that though, I have not a single regret and would do it all over in a heartbeat.

My thanks goes out to all the contributors who sent in music, news, info, samples, and anything at all related to Timbaland. My intention of the site was always to make it as interactive as possible and you all succeeded far beyond my wildest dreams. HUGE thanks goes out to my team, Roderick, Czar, Big A, and Nick. Without you this site wouldn't be what it is today and I would never have even thought of starting it without your Timbo teachings throughout the years. I will always be your padawan.

But I want to give the most thanks to all of you around the world who supported The Chronicles for years, months, even hours. From fans to managers, Romanians to Iranians, you all took a small blog and launched it into becoming the biggest Timbaland website in the world and (arguably) one of the best music sites as well. My appreciation and gratitude will continue for a lifetime.

Despite the closure, I will keep this site as well as the old site open as Timbaland Archives if you will. A lot of blood, sweat, and tears went into The Chronicles and I hope it continues to be a source for the new generation of Timbaland fans.

Don't be a drone!
