Programming Notes

I'm taking a few days off. 

Liberty I've become so accustomed to the day-in, day-out, routine I've developed of consuming the news and info that's out there and processing it into this blog that the idea of taking some time off almost seems more stressful than just sitting back and continuing to work. I guess that's a good reason to step away from the computer for a bit.

But you won't be left alone here. For the next few days you'll have an excellent guest — Steve Pep — bringing you the news, culture, and whatever he decides to float your way. He'll likely be on a slightly different schedule than you're used to here — but you'll hear from him soon.

Steve writes a media-focused blog called Soup Cans. Please be kind to him, enjoy, and check back in often. I'll be back soon.

  4. Andy, take ALL the time you want. I can't thank you enough for all you bring to me each and every day. I'm here, often hourly, just to read your latest words. You make me laugh, cry, and I pump my fist with gay pride so often I want you to know it. Your work here at Towleroad is GREATLY appreciated. Enjoy yourself and we'll read you when you get back.

  6. Andy- You go have some well deserved R & R. I have been reading your blog everyday for years (at least 6) and I cannot recall you ever taking time off. Thank you for all that you do.

  8. Take NOTHING electronic or it's cheating. If you could live with out it at birth, you can survive with out it now.

    Come back refreshed; then you can plug that thyangy cable into that thyangy port at the back of your neck!

  9. Take your much deserved time off, we'll be missing you but you really need to take some time for yourself.

  10. Enjoy your break. Go wild! Miss you while you're gone.

  11. You MUST be tired if you're taking a break!

    Good for you, step away from the world and go throw a snowball, but, I agree that you must pretend it's 1890 an turn off the electronics.

    Maybe when you come back:

    Maggie Gallagher will have come out as a Lesbian (Finally).

    Charlie Crist will be dating Lance Bass ( any surprise there?).

    Harold Ford Jr will be against Gay Marriage (Meaning he's running for a senate seat in South Dakota).

    Mika will have made a listenable CD (no, you won't be away that long).

    Grabbinnescum will have renounced his inner racist ( and pigs will have landed on the iced over shores of the River Hades).

    Whatever, relax Mijo, relax.

  14. Enjoy and relax! I have definitely noticed that the times when posts were made crept to be more round the clock every day. While I love all the info, I know it must take its toll on you. Take it easy. We'll be here when you get back. XOXO, Scott

    Derek, you're hired. Somehow the news is just more interesting when you're around. Next time we should swap out the front page at his ip address and really give him a surprise.
