Hi Jared. No, that's right. I kind of got sick of the whole fb and blog world there for a bit. The lack of most peoples' interest in participating in dialogue about alternative cinema finally got to me I guess. You post a hundred posts about fun, wild, exiting and rare stuff and nobody gives two shits. Hardly never a comment, nothing, zilch. Six years ago, when I initially took my writing online I thought it would be a two-way thing (in contradiction to the one-way thing a fanzine is) and that's exactly how it was for a long time. But lately, the past couple of years, it's gone downhill if you ask me. Even here on CH. On dvdmaniacs too. The few fans of MM style cinema spew out post after post and ... nothing. The only blog comments I get these days are from people who beg me to put my stuff on torrent sites. So I got a little discouraged with it all and by complete chance I discovered that there's an alive and healthy horror community on YT. I thought I'd try it out for a while but it was never meant as a substitute for my presence on fb or posting on blogs. It's basically my cottage away from the city. I don't doubt I'll make a return to the (lonely) world of blogging (or fb) but for now it's "Psychotronic Broadcasting" that is fun to do. About seeing my mug; Yeah, I wasn't sure about going on there all out in the open to begin with. I thought about using the ol'e paperbag but then I thought "ahh sod it!". The accent: You are actually the very first to comment on it! Believe it or not but although I did stay on and off in OZ from 1991-96 it was much more living in London that gave me the accent, haha (the fact that I had an Aussie gf for 10 yrs helped a bit as well). It's weird but three years in London and I didn't have one single British friend. But lots of Aussie and Kiwi friends. For a full year I lived and worked at an Aussie/Kiwi hotel. Down under English was all I heard. In the heart of London. :wacko:Jared wrote: Hey Jack! So this is what you've been up to! Haven't seen you much in the usual places of late. I will check out the videos when I have more time. But it's interesting to finally see your face and hear your voice! I notice you speak English with a rather Aussie-tinged accent! I didn't expect that, although I think I was aware you lived there for a time.
I hope you are well!
