Well, this isn’t exactly a happy ending—  and least not for me— but the Silent Movie Blog has come to the end of the reel.

Some of you have been on board for the whole three years, while others have only just now found it, now that it’s all over. My thanks to all of you. I’m grateful for all your feedback and comments. I’m especially grateful that you’ve been so slow to take offense at the uninspired wisecracks and inappropriate content on display here. I’d rather endure another screening of Napoleon than irritate any of you (whoops, apologies to Mr. Brownlow). The blog’s readership has risen steadily throughout its existence, and is now at an all-time high, which tells me you’ve generally liked what you’ve seen, or that you’ve been hoping for more Laurel and Hardy porno comics (sorry, I only have the one).

In the future, you can find me amongst the participants of Michael Gebert’s outstanding forum Nitrateville, an indispensable resource for everyone who loves silent movies and early talkies. I hope you’ll join us, if you aren’t already there.

Thanks again!
