So much for starting off 2019 with a bang…

We have spent the past SIX WEEKS planning our new year’s launch – three brand new shows, a new Patreon structuring, a bunch of new fresh columns…

So of course…disaster hits…

We had JUST wrapped recording on the first new Subject:CINEMA of 2019, our annual preview show…it was fun and hilarious and we knew it was going to be great…

I clicked “save” and the shows supposedly saved…and then…nothing. The screen suddenly went totally black. No noise, no warning, no anything.

Main hard drive failure. TOTAL COMPLETE FAILURE. And I mean failure. There is NOTHING happening inside the box when I turn it on. I can hear it come on, the power supply pumping up, and..the drive lights are black.

Now, thankfully, we had already been planning to get a replacement machine and upgrade our production equipment. And all the files – not  the many programs, but the files – are all backed up in the cloud. Phew!

So now, instead of using this week  while i’m off from work to get things completed and rolling again…I have to spend it getting the new production machine – several weeks before we were ready for it – then repopulating the drive, getting programs reinstalled, etc.

it’s a very frustrating situation, and for some reason, it always happens RIGHT when something HUGE is on the way.

Long story short – i’m not sure what will make it to air later this week. The preview show will be redone next weekend. I may miss Tuesday Digidex this week, but hopefully we’ll be back up and running later in the week.

I’m so sorry guys and gals…how can we ever expect to get anywhere with our Patreon campaign when shit like this happens to us ALL THE TIME?  It just seems like over the past year or so, we just can’t win at ANYTHING…

As Roseanne Roseannadanna used to say, “It’s always SOMETHING…”

See you as soon as we can…and thank goodness for the laptop…
