    For the record, Steve is bass, Ken is guitar and Justin drums.

    It seemed appropriate, although your facial hair made you a better fit for Ginger.

    “Paul wasn’t the Walrus — I was just saying that to be nice — but I was really the Walrus!”

    Well, now that you are signing off, it’s time for a shameless plus for the opening band…

    Like Frosty the Snowman, we may be back again one day, but in a somewhat different format.

      Would you care to stop by and talk about the dreaded year end lists?

    Your time frame is tricky for me (unless you can do it by phone) and generally impossible for Justin most of the time. But I am not against the idea, though I’m a few viewings shy of a list yet.

    This was somewhat disappointing news. I rather enjoyed Ken and Justin’s witty banter, as well as the chance to hear Ken *audibly* complain about bad movies. Was I the only one? I might have been the only one.

    Well, it’s hard to say, but there must have been a few others — just not enough.
