The Blog into Mystery 2014 Year-End Three Paragraph Spectacular!
Another year for the site is in the books. It’s hard to believe, but in 2015 we’ll be marking the fifth year of blogintomystery.com’s storied existence — an anniversary that will be celebrated by upwards of zero people, granted, but still. When I started this thing back in the sepia-toned year of 2010, I didn’t know what I was doing, nor did I know how long I could keep it up. I still don’t know those answers, but I think I’m at least getting the hang of this internet commentary thing, at long last. I hope those of you who have visited consistently during this span have enjoyed what you’ve seen.
This year got off to a late start, as I took a few months off to recharge my batteries after a long and stressful move of the BiM World Headquarters from a dinky apartment to a dinky condo. But once we got up and running there was some good content to be had. We reviewed some movies, including the most recent Marvel movie masterpieces, Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Guardians of the Galaxy. (And we started getting ginned up for next year’s Ultron-infused Avengers installment.) We rejuvenated the Trading Card Set of the Week feature, and looked at bubble gum cards for properties as diverse as 21 Jump Street, Batman and Spinal Tap. We started up the Sunday Stupid feature. And, of course, there were the comics. President Superman. Spider-Man and condoms. Jeffrey Dahmer. As usual, everything under the sun.
What’s coming up in 2015? More of the same. More movies. More cards. And more comics, the stapled newsprint backbone of this site’s content. I hope you come along and pop in when you have the chance. This is something I enjoy doing, and that anyone else takes some small measure of joy out of it is gravy. Rich, thick gravy. A Happy New Year and a rousing “Excelsior!” to all.
