Farewell & Adieu

Folks, it's the news you have been dreading. From January 2020 The Fast Picture Show will cease trading in its current format, so get your stocks and shares sold when you have the chance. This is the Last Post and chorus.

Unfortunately, my other responsibilities as a philanthropist, astronaut, criminal mastermind, spy, deep sea diver and compulsive liar mean I don't have the time to maintain the site at the high standard you have become accustomed to. If you are insane enough to want to follow my adventures in film, I'll still keep a record here with the Letterboxd guys. Nonetheless, this site will remain in place until it is put out of its misery, both for posterity and as a cautionary tale to historians about letting people with no experience loose on the Internet. Still, it's been a good run and there were even times I thought it was quite good, although those days were few and far between. Maybe, one day, when there are no fields round here anymore, you'll look back and think 'I remember that site - it wasn't so bad'. Well, it's a nice dream to hold onto.....

So look, if you're browsing the site sometime, thanks for the adventure, now go and have a new one. And you might see me round, but not if I see you first. Although in case I don't see ya, good afternoon, good evening and goodnight. So live long and prosperyou stay. I go. No following. If you do, you'll regret it. Maybe not today, and maybe not tomorrow, but soon, and for the rest of your life. I know it's gonna be so hard to say goodbye, I love you all too. But remember, I'll be right here, because, well, I need the eggs. We'll meet again, I'm sure, O captain, my captain, so be excellent to each other, and Party on, dudesSee you in the next life.
