I don't know about dissapointing, but I see the break up happening. The lyrics of Deja make me think he already hated touring constantly, and another major release will only amplify that.

7. No one gets fired at AP.net.
17. MewithoutYou releases one of the most inspiring albums of 2006.
23. Max Bemis returns and writes an album even better than “Is A Real Boy.”
24. Thursday will rule the world once again.

Interesting.

I like how you were one of the few who did actual predictions for next year. Good list, and it's cool to have you as part of the staff.
