THE SINISTER SIX: Six years ago today, yours truly put up his first posting on this here web log, which naturally prompts a small bit of introspection. If you'd told me six years back that I'd be sitting in the low desert of Arizona, typing the words I am today, I'd have scoffed. But here we are. It's definitely been a year that I don't want to repeat again: looking for a new job, ultimately finding one, moving into a new home across the country. "May you live in interesting times," indeed.
We love where we've landed, though the unresolved home sale situation back in Illinois still puts a major crimp in our resources. Haven't been spending money on a lot of pop culture stuff in the past six months - been primarily relying on review materials that have been sent my way through my capacity as writer (and quasi-official comics review editor) for Blogcritics. ("I've always been dependent on the kindness of p.r. flacks.") My big hope, of course, is for us to sell the ol' Normal home and see the return of some discretionary income. But I don't see that situation changing this week.
Be that as it may, I still plan on continuing the Gadabout into the "foreseeable" future. So to those of you who've made a point of regularly stopping by, let me extend my thanks. Now I've got a Fleshtones review to get back to finishing . . .
P.S. And happy eight year anniversary to the redoubtable neilalien!
