“The Road Goes Ever On and On…”
Hey there Crawl Spacers! There’s a couple of past due items that we need to get to. For one – the “Make Mine Married, Marvel!” Contest. We’re actually over a month past the deadline, and I’ll apologize for that. I’m working 65+ hours a week right now – including Saturdays – and I just haven’t had the free time to devote to All Things Crawl Space. Brad “JoMo” Douglas is compiling the entries and I’ll be announcing the winner as soon as is possible.
More below the break…
Second – Fight Club. It’s been almost two months since I’ve been able to get a new Fight Club match going, and Season Three has gone on hiatus. I wish I could give you a timetable as to when I’ll be able to get back to it but I honestly can’t say right now. Effective immediately, Deputy Commissioner AmFan15 is now ‘the Commish.’ He will handle Fight Club for you Crawl Space girls & boys from here on out. He’s done a great job as Deputy Commissioner and I know he will do a great job as the new Big Cheese. Fight Club will now be open to the masses and not restricted to posts by the Commissioner. It will truly belong to “the People.” So commence with the fisticuffs and have fun!
But what about that bedrock foundation of brotherhood and solidarity known as the Mighty Delta House? I’m giving the reins – and the keys to the President’s suite – to Delta House co-founder stillanerd. Please don’t forget to pay the electric bill; the blender in the Tiki Bar depends on it!
“But George! This sounds like… goodbye?!”
That brings me to the last bit of news. This one’s hard for me to get through. For a couple of different reasons, including my demanding work schedule, I turned in my resignation to Brad as a Crawl Space podcast panelist today. It’s not an easy decision for me but unfortunately right now it’s the best one. I’ve had more good times and great memories being at the site and doing the podcast than I could ever possibly count.
To Brad Douglas – I am beyond thankful to you for giving me the opportunity to be involved with the site for as long as I have been. You’re a great guy and a tremendous friend. Keep doing things your way, pal. All the best for the future.
To Kevin Cushing – Thanks very much for all the kind things you’ve said about me over the years and thanks for all the laughs and good times you’ve given me on the site. The world doesn’t know what you have planned for it yet and I doubt it’s ready! Keep being awesome bud.
To J.R. Fettinger – Ah, my old friend. I will miss hearing your curmudgeonly wisdom and insight. I can’t count the number of times I was sure I knew how you would react to this or that and you still found ways to surprise me with how you saw things. Take care, Spider-Yoda!
To BertoneBeatle – Thanks for all the fun times and wackiness over the last few years – especially Spider-Jeopardy. And thanks for all the time and effort you throw into doing things for the site. I don’t think most Crawl Spacers realize just how much that is.
To Donomark – We didn’t always see eye to eye but damn do I respect you. In many ways we’re so extremely different yet we’ve always found a way to enjoy each other’s company. I’ll miss interacting with you quite a bit. Take care, my young friend!
To CrazyChris – I enjoyed the back and forth we used to have and the laughs that would often come from it. You’re someone who makes others “earn it,” almost across the board. Keep that up and never give anyone a pass.
To All Crawl Spacers – Thanks again for all the support, all the camaraderie and all the shenanigans. I’ll miss hearing your thoughts and seeing stories and events through the prism of the reader. Please keep demanding a better Spider-Man and always keep Marvel honest.
I now float out across the transom towards that great Crawl Space in the sky to join Michael Bailey and Stella. I will pop in from time to time when I can… maybe in the Comics forum over at Delta House, maybe in “teh Fight Clubz.”
Until then, I’m ‘East Bound and Down.’ 10-4!
All My Best,
