Sorry for the delay...

Hey everybody, Noel here. I wanted to apologize to everyone for how sporadic our posts have become with increasingly long delays, as well as explain a bit about what's going on. No, the blog isn't dead, and nor are we abandoning our watch-through of Starman.

For the last 20 years, my mother and I have been taking care of my disable sister at home, with me working full time as her care attendant. Sadly, things have gotten to a point where we need to sell the house. This week, we just completed the long and draining process of moving my sister into a group care home (oof, the separation anxiety), and now I'm sorting through stuff and packing in prep for my own pending move while also looking for a new job for the first time in nearly two decades. With this bottleneck of my free time, all my projects have slowed to a crawl, some to a complete halt, but once things settle, we can get everything rolling up again soon. This site especially is one I have much fondness for and I don't want to leave everyone hanging. I just have a lot of things I need to sort out of the way first.

Thanks everybody for your patience and for continuing to read along. And to Tony for sticking with me. We should have a new post going up in just the next week or two as Tony's already finished his portion. After that, there probably will be some more delays, but within the next month or two, I should finally have a firm enough footing on the next chapter of my life that I can maintain a schedule again.

Hi Noel, so sorry to hear of your setbacks. That is very sad. I hope all works out well for you, your Mom and your sister. 20 years is a long time to have taken care of someone who is disabled. I am sure that it took lots of patience and devotion from you. Please send her my well wishes, and I hope she gets great care at her new home.

I haven't checked your board much either recently, but I haven't forgotten, and last month I did get caught up with your reviews on Starman.

Hope you see you back soon.

Thanks, Ray. I really appreciate it. Things have actually been moving along pretty well over the last few weeks, so hopefully won't be too much longer before I'm settled in enough to get rolling again.

Just found this site the other day. Sorry to hear about your troubles.

Please, don't let this blog fall into the shadows of nothingness. I'm still rolling thorough your 80's and early 90's nostalgia and loving it.

Thanks so much for making this blog!

Thanks, Richard. Glad you're enjoying our archives. We haven't completely given up on the blog, I just haven't figured out how to work it into my significantly reduce free time yet, especially as I've got a few podcasts running that need a lot of attention. The Showcase will be back someday, if only to wrap up the projects we left hanging, just don't know when yet.
