This Just In: the Magic Cyclops says "no more!"

The Quad-City-Mad-Man is calling it quits! and after reading his reasons, I can see why. After a post detailing how Bender's Tavern has allegedly ripped him off, he posted this today:

Current mood:THE END OF AN ERA

9 yrs+? 1000 + shows and I've done more then most. After Tonight's hate filled evening which people wanted to fight me, and yelled at me .. and mind you these are grown adults. The evening ended with me being spat upon. Really?! Seriously?! Grown Adults?! So I will play the remaining shows I have comign up and unless the show is great but I'm never offered those shows anyway so I'm done playing live. I'm not going to quit cyclops just try and take it in more a media drivin' direction. Because no matter how many times I think people will "get ot" they just simply do not and are just not smart enough to takea joke. Sad really, but I new this going in because I listen to Devo. People are getting dumber. Are you?! I'm too old and smart for this shirt. This year the shows I've played have just gotten worst and worst leading us up to tonight and I can't take it anymore. Plus none of my friends ever come out to the show so it is just hate filled weirdos .Enough.

Saaaaaaaad :(, but I don't blame him. Check out his last shows:
