Signing Off....

The Spy-Fi Channel is going off the air for a while.

As much as I love spy movies, television shows and fiction - and brother, I love them a lot - I really haven't had much to say/write about the genre lately. And as for keeping up with the latest spy news or reviewing flicks and books, well, frankly, my fellow C.OB.RA.S. are much better at it and do a more in-depth job of it.

But mostly, it's because, for whatever reasons, my pop culture obsession of late has been more focused on the science fiction television shows and movies that I grew up with as a child in the 1970s, and less with the spy-fi I discovered in my teens. When I get the itch to blog, it's that science fiction stuff that seems to be on my mind lately, and I've been writing about it over on my Space: 1970 blog.

That site is devoted to my first pop culture love affair - shows and movies like Star Trek, Star Wars, Logan's Run, Battlestar Galactica, Space: 1999, etc. - and I guess as I hit my mid-Forties, my nostalgia for that "first love" has become pretty strong. My nostalgic time-traveling has also seemed to strike a chord with a larger number of people - the Space: 1970 blog has, by far, the largest following/readership of anything I write for the web.

Now, I never completely abandon a blog, and I will still post here occasionally, but I can't promise any sort of regular updates. For the foreseeable future, most of my blogging will be over at Space: 1970 and my personal blog, Atomic Pulp. Knowing me, though, sooner or later I'll get in my "spy mode" again, and this blog will come in from the cold with a vengeance.

Now, I don't know how many people even visit this site these days, nor how many of you guys have any interest in 1970's-era sci-fi, but if anyone wants to drop by over on my other site, I'd love to see you there.

Thanks to all my readers & followers for your support over the last year or so, and especially to my fellow C.OB.R.A.S. It's been great.

The Spy-Fi Channel will return....
