Can you believe it?
I definitely can’t believe it.
The #Bond_age_ project has traversed the 23-film Bond franchise twice, plus 11 or so detours for IMPOSTORS! and Proto-#Bonds. TWICE! I feel like Jeremy Piven’s character in Grosse Pointe Blank. TEN YEARS!!! TEEEN YEEEEEARS!!! Except, of course, substitute two times. TWO TIMES! Whenever I hit these landmarks I get a little teary-eyed thinking about all the great live tweets and amazing people I’ve met on Twitter because of this project that started on a whim back in November of 2012.
After Skyfall, however, I’m going to take a little bit of a break from the rigors of #Bond_age_ hosting to tackle the laborious writing side of the project. #Bond_age_ isn’t over, but we’re going to be trying some new things while I focus on finishing the essays and compiling the book. @GregMcCambley begins his #Bond_age_TV series. We’ll do some more IMPOSTORS! and a #Proto, hosted by @MiddParent and @NitrateDiva. Keep a close eye on the schedule for the coming months. And if you have an idea about something you want to do, let me know. This project was always about the community.
All that said, this Wednesday, February 19th, it’s SKYFALL DAY, the unofficial semi-yearly-ish holiday of the #Bond_age_ project. We’ll celebrate Bond all day long, capped off with the main attraction, the live tweet of Bond #23, Skyfall at 9pm EST. Follow #SKYFALL hashtag.
