Good Night, Lost Boy(s)

I launched this blog a little over 5 years ago and have had so, so much fun with it. But I can't be a lost boy forever (though don't take this as a suggestion I'm anything close to a "found man" today... more like semi-lost man-boy), and honestly I've been phoning it in a bit the past little while anyway, largely out of the simple fact that I don't have the time and energy I did back when it started. So after 2,392 posts, I'm letting it go.  When things you once loved doing start feeling like just another notch on a to-do list, it's time to re-assess. Though I will definitely miss the occasional inspired opportunity to make a silly list or inappropriate rant.

Huge thanks to my former bosses and present and future friends Eugene Hernandez and Brian Brooks for encouraging me to start the blog in the first place...  and to Daniel D'Amours, Austin Dale, Stephen Dunn, Mark Ambrose Harris, Matt Knott, Brad Horvath, Derek Marchewka, Pedro Marum, Oliver Skinner, Bryce Renninger, Nigel Smith and Hayden Wright for contributing to this blog since it opened up to include multiple contributors a year or so ago... and to Meagan Durlak and Sebastian Speier for making the lovely logo.

I took a stroll down memory lane in the midst of a snowy Boxing Day, and listed some of my favourite entries below to send things off nostalgically.

Happy rest of 2012s, all... xo Peter

    Well done Pierre with the blog. You were always a rock star!

    Wow, I remember that night our car got impounded! We were at a Magnolia party so so far up in the mountains during Sundance and I looked out the window and saw a tow truck drive off with our car. So, off to some little town out in the snow we went to get our car back. A few hundred dollars later (cash only - but conveniently an ATM was located right there) we drove back to Park City. Didn't we also manage a late night photo shoot outside as well? At least the impound people were pretty nice.
