Farewell, 2014 … you were a strange year.

I had a great time blogging … and more importantly, finding new blogs and bloggers. Thank you to all of you who I met; you are all cool and inspiring. Keep fighting the good fight in 2015.

My highlights as I look back on the year:

PULP3

I had a great time hosting my Pulp Fiction 20th Anniversary blogathonI have a couple of leftover posts that I will put up here in January. Thanks again to everyone who contributed.

I began contributing to 2Paragraphs.com … it’s nice, I’m Chief Entertainment and Culture Correspondent, which is cool as I have never been Chief Anything.

I also loved contributing to other blogs, so thank you to MovieRob, Cinema Parrot Disco, and A World of Film for letting me blather on about stuff.

Of course, it wasn’t all fun and games. I lost two dear friends this year.

And we all bid a sad farewell to a lot of talented people, including James Garner, Lauren Bacall, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Mickey Rooney, Robin Williams, Maya Angelou, Roger Lloyd-Pack, Rik Mayall, Eli Wallach, and Bob Hoskins.

Have a safe and happy and peaceful and blogtastic 2015!
