I was originally going to title this post "Sorry, folks! Blog's closed! Moose out front should have told you!" But a Google search revealed that pretty much everyone who has ever shut down their blog ever has used that gag. So...
Anyway, for anyone still reading, this probably doesn't come as a surprise. The blog's been on life support for over a year, and aside from the odd muscle twitch here and there in the form of a post, it's pretty clear the patient isn't going to recover. So the plug's getting pulled.
I actually decided to do this a couple of years ago. I'd had a good run, but the novelty had worn off, and besides, with Twitter, why bother pounding out a 1,000 word blog post when I could just condense whatever dumb thought I wanted to express into 140 characters or less?
But I kept finding reasons to not to. If nothing else, I wanted to keep it going until the final Batman film came out (I'd link to the post, but...I mean, it's right below this one. Seriously, four blog posts used to be a week's output. Now, it's all of 2012.) In retrospect, this was a mistake, and I should have ended it before it just withered. I think I put it off for as long as I have in the hopes my enthusiasm for it might come back, but it hasn't.
I'm not completely going away. I'm still on Twitter, and because writing about horror movies is the one thing I still sort of enjoy, I'm re-opening Zombie Cinema, my horror movie blog which until recently, I hadn't posted to since 2007.
So, thanks for reading. Thanks for commenting. See you around.
