Either he's dead or my watch has stopped!

What I know about Gerry Carpenter is he is truly sensitive to films and filmmaking, plus his kindness, helpfulness, thoughtfulmess...and friendliness; a true human being and gentleman.  I am one of the few that quarrelled with that board, a contrite prodigal son that Gerry welcomed back,  I'll be damned if it wasn't the greatest board...ever!

Sheesh...I'm feeling the love here guys!  Tearing up at work...at least my cubicle is not one of the prime destinations in the office so I can sniffle in peace.  Seriously I guess didn't know how much everyone cared.  Thanks all.

Nathan,  I'm still undecided about the ultimate fate of Scifilm.org, but I am working with and/or inviting everyone who has contributed content in the past to find a new home for their writings on the Internet.   

I've received several offers to archive the site wholesale that are much appreciated.  However, I think I would rather see Scifilm spores dessiminate throughout the Internet that can grow into their own fungal sites than simply freeze-dry the dessicated carcass of the old Scifilm.  Some like Jase's TV Files may take a bit longer to germinate, but sometimes patience is required for good things to come to pass.  Some may never be seen again, but I'm not sure that's necessarily a bad thing.  Time will tell.

One thing is for damn sure, no cybersquatter is getting my domain (unless they pay me a hell of a lot of money for it!).

Sorry to see another good site going away. Scifilm was a highly informative site and I enjoyed the reviews tremendously because they were written with great respect to the genre.

"Nooo!!! The Paaaiiinnn!!!"

While I'm registered to post at any number of websites, Gerry's was one of the few that I visited on a weekly basis.

And to Gerry, it was fun while it lasted. Thank-you. I am sure that all of us here are hoping you will do well at whatever you do next. And stop by here on occasion, so we know you aren't dead yet.

So Gerry, is your webmaster address still functioning? I ask because Dr. Mality (those familiar with Scifilm know to whom I'm referring, Doc's site and Message board can be found at www.wormwoodchronicles.com ) has told me his most recent e-mails to you have been returned and I haven't heard back from you on the latest e-mail I sent out either. I know it might just be you've been too busy to check it but I thought I ask now as I'm about to take off for a week or two on a working trip (tomorrow morning to be exact) so you'd know Doc was trying to get in touch with you in case you don't already know them details.

Yeah, it's still working.  I'm not sure what the problem is.  You can always PM me through this board.  I haven't gotten any e-mails from you or Doc in a while.  I tried registering for Doc's Wormboard, but never got an activation message.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
