Hiatus!





For various reasons, I need an extended break from the blogosphere, so that is what I'll do. I'm considering moving to a new place, I'm tired of living in a small flat, where I can't play music like I want to, and have to put up with noise from neighbours. I also have a stack of 50+ unread books, which I have neglected.

I'll probably still rate films on letterboxd, and will answer comments on previous posts. Just don't expect any new blog posts in the upcoming weeks. Commenting on other sites I'm taking a break from. I'll be back for year-end lists in December or January.

In case you're interested, I've compiled a list of movies I want to catch up on in 2014 and beyond.


In my absence, why not visit these other great film blogs, who also do monthly recaps:
Flixchatter
Inspired Ground
To The Movies And Back
I Love That Film
Lime Reviews
The Warning Sign
U, Me and Films
Surrender to the Void
The Cinematic Spectacle
Time Well Spent
Tips from Chip
Lights Camera Reaction
Let's be splendid about this
The Matinee (weekly recaps)


I'll miss you. Take care everyone!
Chris

    3. @Cristi B: Have fun with joining the LAMB! Twitter is worth considering, if you want your blog to gain more exposure. I tweet all my blogposts, and gain hits that way.

    4. I'll take that into consideration.

    1. @Pete Turner: Thanks, it will be weird with the change. But I ’ll be back for year-end lists, and next year for a few marathons(favorite short films for sure), but I don’t know if I’ll be blogging every week in 2014.

  6. Have a good break :) Sometimes a little time off and just getting yourself sorted is a whole lot more important than blogging. Sometimes ;)

    See you on the otherside!

    1. @Jaina: Thanks! I agree, got to sort out the big issues, and updating the blog is secondary. See you in 2014!

    1. @Andina: I’m well thanks, hope you are too. It will be great to have a bit more space, when I move to a new place. I’m working on the year-end lists, and look forward to yours!
      Every Christmas and birthday my pile of unread books gets bigger, got to work on that :)

I’ve been working on my year-end lists, and will be the same as previous years: Top 100 songs(spread out this time into ten posts), favorite albums of 2013, fav old movies seen, and fav new films seen.
