Changes

Hello!

It's been some time, but this place is now going through some changes. The biggest one being that I will keep it active, and consistently so. Despite my absence here, my passion for film, games, music and the arts hasn't diminished in the slightest. I've got much more to share, and a lot of lost time to make up for.

As I've grown in appreciation and knowledge of the film industry, I see how little I knew when I began here. Following that, I'm aware that what I now know is still embarrassingly small, and I will keep pursuing this passion. This is the reason behind the site's change in name and design. I want to improve both my thoughts and their vehicle. The design itself is still improving (and will soon feature the artistic talents of my partner), but I don't want to put this off any longer.

Off-white. I must give credit to a good friend of mine for the name. Sam Jenne is an author in his own ingenious way, and a fantastic voice of advice. I ended up using this name because of this site's nature. It's not the white standard of every media site, but it's also not an individual color of the spectrum. It draws from film, books, music, games, and potentially more media in the future. Off-white isn't a radical hue, but it can take different forms and appeal to different readers, depending on the subject matter. Off-white is also a deviation from the normal, and I hope to make it unique and informative.

Now, for some necessary business. I owe an apology to Andrew of Brother Oliver. After reviewing his first release, Stubborn Fool, I'd agreed to give him some coverage of his sophomore album, Kudzu. That was several months ago. This will be the first review published on Off-white. The second will be of an interesting project he released, titled Glamdring. I encourage you to check them out: http://www.forthrightrecords.com/

That's all for now, but I will have fresh words here before a week has passed. Thank you for reading, and I hope you'll share this new leg of the journey with me!
