CATCH US IN THE CITY OF ROSES
Extratone is headed West.
Despite our petty qualms with Portland’s population, Hawthorn and I will be packing the entirety of Extratone’s assets into my old Jaguar tonight, and departing West from Columbia this afternoon. It’s sudden, yes, but was preempted in March’s Editor’s Letter, and will be elaborated in this month’s (which is late again.)
In that letter, I promised a revisitation of my Midwestern origins before we left. Spring/Summer 2017 eventually came to be known as Yokel Edition, but we don’t have nearly as much to show for it as I would’ve liked. There was our Futureland episode on Columbia’s True/False Film Festival, The Movie Closet’s episode on Missouri-made films, and Eryn and I’s failed go at launching a podcast about our local adventures.
There’s a part of me that’d like to insist upon the likelihood of our coming back to it, one day, but the chances are slim. I hope you’ll come to see the change as a good thing, though. The viability of our local coverage in Columbia has always been doubtful and unwanted, but we hope the Northwest will prove to be as Fresh as we’d like it to be.
Regardless, the possibilities are exciting. More details to come.
