It’s been a little bit since I’ve written an update about the website and all the bits and pieces associated with it.
First off, it’s been just over a year now that Travis Akbar has been part of the site, pumping out review after review, so a belated congratulations on that anniversary. Travis has just recorded his first and second interviews, both of which will be going up on the site very soon.
Secondly, we’d like to welcome a new writer to the team, Hagan Osborne. Hagan is a Melbourne local who has already punched out a bunch of great reviews, with everything from Terry Gilliam’s latest, to a look at VR events in Melbourne. Welcome to the team!
As for me, well, I’ve been punching out review after review while also quietly working on a few projects behind the scenes that’ll come out a bit later on in the year. Needless to say, there’s always something happening at The Curb. A few things that can be mentioned are that I’ll be running the Q&A session for the Aussie comedy Me & My Left Brain in Perth on May 28th with writer/director/actor Alex Lykos. Also, Perth’s Swancon is coming up soon and I’ll be there making an appearance on some panels.
Elsewhere, Jeanette is still plugging away with her work at Little Pink Typewriter. You can follow all the exploits here, and make sure to keep an eye on her Instagram as well for impending puppy photos.
Now, for the website itself, I’ve added in a few handy things that will help keep up to date with the site, as well as to help get in contact with us.
First of all, there’s a handy rss feed link. Yep, rss feeds aren’t dead, they’re still kicking. I personally use Feedly to keep up to date with website I follow. To follow The Curb, just put in this link to your rss catcher of choice and you’ll have new posts appear there.
But, if an rss feed isn’t your thing, then fear not, we also have a newsletter that’ll help you keep up to date with what’s going on with The Curb. We’ll only send out an email fortnightly, with each newsletter keeping you up to date with reviews, news, interviews, and competitions. Subscribe at the bottom of the website.
Finally, the hard sell!
The Curb is an independent website that runs on the strength of its writing team, as well as whatever funds are leftover from existing. At the moment, all the funds to keep the site running come directly from me, which is why we have a Patreon account to help with the day to day running of the website. Every little bit helps out!
And that’s it! Thanks go out to everyone for visiting The Curb and reading our reviews or articles.
