    Man I almost missed it. Glad I checked in this morning. Mr. Ellis, your presence will be sorely missed on this board. But I will continue to hunt down your writing. In the past 2 years I have almost completely stopped buying and reading comics. I still search out your work and read it and will continue to do so. It was easy when you were regularly telling us what was coming up. You also pointed to to some other great books that I have enjoyed. I need to find a new pusher.

    Under the gun too, as it's Sunday morning here.

    I lurk far more than I should, but I want to thank you for spearheading the only genre based forum I've found that doesn't assault me with negativity. Trying to remove as much of that from my life as I can, and coming here to read people talking about the things we love helps with that.

    What did I do this week? Worked, which included leading the Ghost Walk and the Hollywood Tour of downtown Wilmington, NC. The first one is difficult for a skeptic, but I try to make it fun, although tips have been slow. The second is more fun, but the kids who want to see nothing but One Tree Hill and Dawson's Creek locations make me weary. Does no one want to see Dean Stockwell's brothel from Blue Velvet? Apparently not.

    The rest of this year means hopefully finishing my first screenplay, and finding a way to mount a production of Bogosian's TALK RADIO, bowing in 2012 (fingers crossed).

    Please don't be a stranger. This WAS very much your forum no matter what the original intent, and I hope you pop in a bit, as I don't think it would be inappropriate.

    I will continue to look at anything with your name on it, Sir.

    And thank you for Planetary.

    Here's me at the Ghost Walk if I can upload this correctly.

    For me Whitechapel was where I first started to really interact with the internet in any real way.
    Sure, I used email and I searched for things but until Whitechapel I never really engaged.
    Here I've met amazing people, been introduced to stunning art and music, learned to read again just for the pure enjoyment of it, been able to ask questions of artists and performers and people of all kinds without fear of being dismissed or condescended to, read some of the most heart-breakingly honest stories, been inspired to try things and think things I'd have never thought to otherwise, felt included and never been bored.
    For sharing your lives and your interests with me and letting me share mine, I thank every single person on Whitechapel.

    Warren, thank you for letting me know this sort of world is out here and I love that I stumbled onto it because I was following the worlds you showed me in your writing.
    I think the biggest thing I take away from your benevolent dictatorship is that the world is a more interesting place when people get excited about making or learning things and then share that passion and its products with others.
    That and to never click on something when you say not to click on it. Ever.
