Break Out The Crates


My online bff 4evah, Cormac Brown, he blogs (I can't even refer to it in the past tense, I'm that twisted up inside) WriteProcrastinator, has shut down... for good. He's breaking up with us. Sure, we can still find him on Bad Lieutenants Wife and Cormac Writes. Still. It's not the same. Not only was Cormac the first commenter I got on All The Way From Oy to Vey, his blog has dished up some of my favorite series, Separated at Birth, SAB, SAB, SAB, Blog Rebus, yarns about SF and a few of his favorite local artists, Zhan Wang, Liz Hickok and so much more. He's delightful and hysterical, a gem of a person and blogger. He plugs all of our nonsense all of the time. He's incredibly supportive and the menschiest of mensches-- and now he's going bye-bye.

I am bluewjewin' it hard on this one. In his final post, the images have left me as forlorn as the post.

Cormac, you will be missed more than you know. I am pining already.

I am speechless...or is it "typeless?" Thank you, Katie-lah.

Cormac, you are missed hard!

Tanya Espanya said...

Yeah, and I just tried commenting over there, dude, and you were all, denied...only open to team members, etc.

My comment was:

This is all my fault! I hate myself for ignoring you and I hate you for letting me ignore you.

I can't wait to see what you enter in my contest.

that is all.

His blog fell victim to real life is what he claimed to me. Here's the funny thing, though--now I actually read more of his writing, so that's a good thing.

I do miss that blog though.

I'm a bit sad myself.

The monkey will always be here for you my little Jewess.

Right, Teeny! Our Cormac is super happy. We are super happy for him. I think he disabled comments. I will hock him to check the comments he's gotten here. You know how I do.

Katie Schwartz said...

I know, Frannygirl. I felt the same way until we dished hard about it. You must visit him at http://cormacwrites.blogspot.com for a fix and to read his short stories... They kick ass.

I was, too, Bethyboo. I was super Rokeach (Jewish death *shiva* candle) and crate ready.

Katie Schwartz said...

Thank you, monkeymuffin. You rock.

Melinda June said...

Amen, sistah. I'm refusing to delete the link from my blogroll.
