  1. Just wanted to say, Jonny, that I've really come to depend on you for these TCM updates. You're doin' the Lord's work here, sir...or whatever eldritch entity it is to which you offer up sacrifices. Thanks!

  2. Thanks for the recognition, senski! I've become enamored with TCM as of late. As for my eldritch entity, let's go with Moloch. If it's good enough for Allen Ginsberg, and it's good enough for Dexter Morgan, then by golly, it should be good enough for me!
