My Goodness This Blog Has Been Inactive


Hi there. Heh-heh.

I've lost count now. Which number of apologia is this to make amends for inactive blog posting?

What a year. 2016 was the time I had pledged to make a fresh new start, and that didn't happen for a multitude of reasons. I then resolved to start 2017 with a clean slate and renewed sense of purpose, albeit a little late. Since December 28, I was laid up with a cold, and therefore everything in my current roster had to be pushed back several weeks. I'm still getting caught up on celebrating the holidays with relatives!

As noted on my sister blog Mount Unwatched (itself dormant also due to reasons above),  Honest Ed's closed for good on December 31. With it, went most of the adjacent businesses on Markham St. Favourite haunts such as Suspect Video, The Beguiling, and Butler's Pantry have shuttered, or are dispersing to other locations, all in the name of "progress". Just what we need: more overpriced condos, more frozen yogurt places. Yippee!  And so, culturally, last year, was like watching the slow but certain death of a loved one. Perhaps the cessation of that lifeblood is what has inspired me more to continue what I used to do, to keep that culture alive!

Thanks for taking the trip with us. More real soon.
