More about the above (*) later, but I have a deadline so I just want to say Thanks to the readers (if you're out there) and I hope you'll keep coming back! Seems like only yesterday but it's been lots of fun blogging here and on the cfb's sisters, continuum horror and Ina's (70s) horror.
There's tons to catch up on--dead ass links to resolve and a mast head to possiblely redesign-- coming up in future. I tell ya this makes me very happy--who'd a thunk it! I'm looking forward to expanding and improving the blogs!
Here's a birthday clip from my faves Key and Peele, who I haven't written about here yet. I love this sketch and it comically embodies many of the cinema, race, art and cultural concerns that have fuelled this blog for a 1/2 decade!
