Or, more appropriately, hello again.
If you’re reading this, then you’ve read my final video column for Starweek, and you’ve probably read a few others before that, so I’d like to start by saying, very simply …
Thanks for being my reader. Thanks for letting me praise the stuff that I’ve loved, and thanks for letting me rant about the stuff that I hated, and thanks for telling me, on several occasions, that my column was the first thing you turned to in Starweek every Saturday.
And for the three or four of you who were kind enough to say my Starweek column was the only reason they got the Star on Saturday … well, feel free to cancel your subscription. (Hi, Mom.)
I’m hoping to resuscitate the column elsewhere in the not-too-distant future — syndication’s a possibility, but anybody with a newspaper is certainly welcome to contact me. And in the meantime, I’m still very much around; if you live in Toronto, Vancouver or Ottawa you can find me in the pages of Metro newspapers, and I’m still reviewing DVDs at Tribune Media Services’ entertainment site Zap2it.com .
Oh, and if you have Rogers Digital Cable, turn on channel 01; the odds are pretty good you’ll see me reviewing movies for Your World This Week. (If you see Vanessa Farquharson doing it, it’s my week off.)
And now I have this blog thing. This is version 1.0, and I’m still not sure what it’s going to be when it grows up. But I hope you’ll be a part of it. I hope you’ll help shape the conversation.
So, again, thanks for following the column, and thanks for coming here.
Thanks for reading, is what I’m saying.
