Merry Christmas, Happy New Year and what can Santa Rob bring you next year?


It’s that time again everyone. Time for my annual Festivus break, whatever Festivus is. I have minimal plans to blog until January 5th – there certainly won’t be a Daily News until then – so I’ll see you all back here on that date. Behave though since I’ll be watching.

But, as is our new tradition, let’s take this as an opportunity to have a reader survey. What sorts of things would you like to see on this here blog in 2009? More of the same, less of the same, or something completely different? At the very least, a blog software upgrade some time in the New Year should give you the ability to sign in with your Blogger or Facebook account, so you don’t need to ask for that.

Anyway, leave your requests below in the comments and I’ll decide what gets the chop and what stays alive when I get back. Ali Larter and Joanna Page are staying, of course, and do I need to even discuss the popularity of Sitting Tennant? I think not.

In the meantime, a Merry Christmas/Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year to you all and thanks as always to everyone who’s left a comment for livening up the place!

I’ve edited Dreamwatch, Sprocket and Cambridge Film Festival Daily; been technical editor for TV producers magazine Televisual; reviewed films for the short-lived newspaper Cambridge Insider; written features for the even shorter-lived newspaper Soho Independent; and was regularly sarcastic about television on the blink-and-you-missed-it “web site for urban hedonists” The Tribe.
