Thanks to everyone for your patience. As Ari noted yesterday when he kindly took on some posting responsibilities, I've been forced to move from my apartment because of the extraordinary power outages in NYC due to Hurricane Sandy. So, I've checked into a hotel with my boyfriend and will be posting updates from here for the time being (right now I'm blogging from the bathroom while my bf sleeps in the other room – see a photo at my twitter @andytowle). That said, things may still not be happening on the schedule you've come to expect.
I hope everyone displaced by Sandy has found a warm and safe place to stay. Many thanks and best wishes to you all.
