Happy Birthday, Cinema Viewfinder, Courtesy of Rubén Blades and the Fania All Stars

by Tony Dayoub

As Mark Twain said, "The reports of my death are greatly exaggerated." In fact, my disappearance can be explained by my laptop's badly timed decision to implode last week. So as I try to piece together my mini-database, the blogs I follow, my all-important bookmarks and the like, allow me to take a moment to tout the 3rd anniversary of this blog.

I'd also like to acknowledge the momentous events in Egypt and the Middle East, an area where a significant amount of my readers live. Stay safe, and know that the whole world watches you.

I plan on updating the site with a new review soon. Until then.

Ack. Sorry to hear of your technology woes. Looking forward to the more regular posting to resume.

That sucks, Tony. Sorry to hear about your computer. That's happened to my desktop before, and it's amazing how much it consumes your life when you're trying to get another computer up and running.

Happy blogiversary, though! We share the same blog birthday. Looking forward to 2011 at Cinema Viewfinder (and another great Labor Day blogathon!)

Tony, I hate to disagree, but I read of your death in The New York Times and they are never wrong. Sorry, but you're dead.

Now then, that doesn't mean you can't have a fulfilling undead existence as a blogger as exemplified by this very post and I look forward to your many "beyond the grave" postings to come.

And Happy Anniversary on your third year!

Thanks for your loyalty, Ryan. It was great meeting you in person last year.

Kevin, happy anniversary to you! I've got some catching up with my blog reading because of the laptop mishap, but I'll chime in ASAP over at your site.

Greg, I'm glad my passing from the earthly plane has no effect on your desire to read my musings. It does give me better access to our deceased legends, hence my recent shift in focus to classic movies. I'm sure it will be even more useful in formulating my upcoming contribution to your preservation blogathon!
