Okay guys, so here’s the real of my situation. I’m under a stay at home order by my local government, in case you haven’t been reading my new blog section, listening to or watching the news or have been living under a rock for the past seven weeks. All non-essential businesses have been ordered to shut down.
This is also happening on both coasts of the country. This means that nothing is shipping out of the country and nothing is coming in…like comic books, graphic novels and such.
My comic book store has been closed and it looks like it will be through the month of April. Now, I have a HUGE stockpile of comics that I can still read and review. But I won’t be able to get anything new until the owners and I figure out some sort of shipping arrangement or something. My standard pick-up order is fairly extensive so shipping would be rather costly unless it was one of those flat rate box deals.
Anyway, I also cannot go to the movie store and buy any new movies to review. Again, I have a fair amount to still get through and review for you, but with no way of knowing how long this way of life will last, I don’t know when I will be able to replenish my resources. Regular shipping on online shopping and eBay has slowed way down already and if that is going to be the only way to get a lot of things for a while, things might get a little bumpy.
But don’t you worry. I want you guys to have something fun to read and do while you are all cooped up as well. The good news is a lot of the movies I have and choose to review are older and can usually be found online somewhere to watch. I will do my best to try to find links or suggestions of where to find the movies if I can so you can watch while you are asked to stay at home as well.
I also will be doing my best to post as often as I can to keep new content coming. Please keep in mind I am the only one doing everything on this website so have a little patience. I just want to publish the best content I can for you, my readers.
Lastly, I am going to take this moment to extend my deepest wishes to all of you, hoping that you stay safe, stay healthy, take care of yourselves and loved ones. Remember that we are all in this together. We all live in this nation. We all share the burden of responsibility to care for each other and we share the burden of responsibility in the failure of that care. Each of us can and should be doing our part, what is being asked of us, the common sense exercises that will save countless lives. Including yours and mine.
I appreciate ALL of you for being loyal fans. I have some ideas for a new section coming up this month for Horror TV. I hope you guys and gals will get a kick out of the new stuff.
Thank you all so much.
