Welcome Back to The Reeler

I had a crazy dream last night in which I was wearing pants about six sizes too big for me, and I was kind of sluggishly running in them, half-sweating, half-crying, curious how long and how fast I could keep it up, committed at any rate because the alternative meant being underdressed, and God knows that is just no choice at all. I wonder what it meant.

Anyway, sleep was fun while it lasted, but now I am back and I brought the new-and-ostensibly-improved Reeler Web site with me. As mentioned previously, nothing much has changed except that I have accrued extra piles of crap that I will never get done. But it all still pertains to the sphere of New York cinema that you have (hopefully) been following here for a while now, where the city's films, filmmakers and events will receive an increasingly comprehensive look as the site accommodates extra contributors and content.

In addition to the great new features and reviews sections, I am excited to have installed another pair of blogs beside this old whipping post: One for devoted coverage of premieres and events; and the other focusing on the dozens upon dozens of New York-area film festivals overlapping year-round. The blogs also feature daily updated events and festival calendars, each representing The Reeler's inaugural forays into legitimate reader service. I knew I would get around to it eventually.

Anyhow, have a poke around as the site shakes out its bugs and moves into its own. Huge thanks to Barry Hoggard at Tristan Media for his diligent, patient engineering work here, and loving thanks to the generous folks whose faith in The Reeler helped establish its independence. And of course, thanks to you, kind reader, for continuing to drop in and indulge me with your company. Here's hoping we have plenty more to talk about in the future.
