So Long And Thanks For All The Fish!

To all the writers, contributors, podcasters, and community members on ROWTHREE.COM:

We would like to thank you for making RowThree such as special space to shoot the shit about movies, cinema, soundtracks, directors, cinematographers, editors, mega-franchises, and poster art. It has been just a hairs breadth over a Decade since RowThree.com swung open its doors, and invited the internet in to sit down and have a movie discussion. In that time, a community blossomed, friendships were made, arguments were had, viewing recommendations were made and ideas were discussed. We were happy to play host to the writers, talkers and cue-card artists that have livened up the place.

What started with a few amateur writers assembling (John Allison, Jonathan Burdick, Andrew James, Marina Antunes and Kurt Halfyard) to consolidate their blogs into a community space has resulted in over 10,000 articles and 100,000 comments, hundreds of archived episodes of The Cinecast, Mamo!, After The Credits, and a potpourri of other podcast efforts. They will all locked and preserved in this space for a couple years. Feel free to enjoy them.

You can find Marina & The After The Credits players over at their new site: ATCPOD.CA
You can find the Mamo! Matt’s over at the Modern Superior Podcast Network with their DeathWatch podcast, as well as other side projects.
You can find Ariel Fisher also over at Modern Superior with A Frame Apart
You can find David Brook and his writing over at BluePrintReview.
You can find Matthew Gamble at Where The Long Tail Ends.
You can find Andrew very active at his Letteboxd Account.
You can find Kurt’s writing over at Screen Anarchy.
If you are itching for that Cinecast/Rowthree vibe, there is an effort underway to resurrect The Movie Club Podcast in the new year and put out episodes on a monthly schedule.

It was a privilege and a blast to work and play in this space. Cheers.

Welcome to Jandy Stone.

jandystoneYou may have seen a couple of reviews around Rowthree (and it’s kissing cousin, Morepop) over the past few days written by a Ms. Jandy Stone. We would like to take this opportunity and formally welcome her to the Row Three community and very much look forward to her contributions and conversation. She is a fan of Anna Karina, has watched Bela Tarr’s Satantango (in one sitting?), and has all of her pop culture (high and low) bases covered. Some academics in there too. The combination makes me all warm and fuzzy inside. She also runs a sharply designed website of her own, The-Frame. (More on Jandy in the About Section of Rowthree)

It is nice to have another female voice on the site.

So all of you out there, casual and regular readers alike, give some warm hellos.
