Normally, I’m thrilled when people agree with me. But finding out that Steve Lewis had the same reaction to Boston Blackie that I did kinda bums me out.
David Thomson on the ten extraordinary minutes of film for which the late Barry Nelson should be remembered.
Because Rosemarie can’t get enough of him, I give you MC Nuts.
Miscellaneous: Another Year, Another Blogiversary
Wednesday marks three, count ‘em, three years of what a friend of mine has shorthanded to VK-dot-C. Not bad, considering the average lifespan of a blog. (Starting one and then neglecting it? Who would do such a thing?)
The site has evolved over that time. I don’t post every day, or even every other day, any more. And believe it or not, I don’t post about every book I read or movie I see, either. It only seems that way. Somehow, though, I find enough to blather about.
Occasionally I’ll tell myself that it’s time to mix it up. Change the layout of the site, or at least the photos on each page. But life and work intrude, and I never seem to get around to it. The look of the page hasn’t changed in three years, and it may not for three more.
Speaking of work, I’ve got some I should be doing. So I’m going to steal a bit from Ken Levine and ask you to do a little writing. If you’re a regular or semi-regular reader, leave a comment. Say who you are and where you’re from, what you like or what you don’t like about the place. Or you can just say “Hi” to let me know you’re there. (NOTE: Family and friends are not exempt from this request. In fact, I’m relying on you to do your part. You don’t want me to be embarrassed, do you?)
As always, thanks for stopping by. I’ll do what I can to keep it interesting around here.
