I've already gone as sentimental as I should when his departure was announced last month, but today is the first day of indieWIRE without Eugene Hernandez and it just didn't seem appropriate to let that go by without a little note here. It really truly just ain't going to be same without you.

For the fourth time in this blog's history, I have the honor of congratulating my dear Winona Ryder on making it through another year of her conflicted fourth decade. The accidental beard of my boyhood, Ms. Ryder is 39 years old today. And once again, I plea with some casting director out there to take notice of the fabulosity that was her small role in "Black Swan" and give her a role thats beyond some shitty Ron Howard romantic comedy where she plays Kevin James' cheating girlfriend.

I've failed to mention the horrifying suicide of Rutgers University student Tyler Clementi yet on this blog, or the attention it has brought to the fact that LGBT-related suicide and violence are an epidemic in the United States and around the world. My excuse is that the tragedy happened in the midst of some intense traveling on my end, so there simply wasn't time to write about it in the manner it deserved. I also felt that by the time I had a moment to write about it, anything I really had to say was already being said. Take this tweet by Harvey Fierstein, which perfectly encapsulates my basic feelings on the subject:

In the past couple of weeks, a lot has gone down at indieWIRE. First, Eugene Hernandez announced he would be stepping down from his role at indieWIRE for a deserved new gig at the Film Society of Lincoln Center. Then, Todd McCarthy got hired as the chief film critic at The Hollywood Reporter, leaving his "Deep Focus" blog here at iW as a result. And now, it " TARGET="_blank">has been announced that Anne Thompson would be taking a new role as iW's Editor at Large. And while there are still many more developments to follow in the coming weeks, I figured this might be a good time to stop and take it in for a second.

So today the indie film world got a bit of a shock. Eugene Hernandez announced he would be stepping down from his role at indieWIRE for a deserved new gig at the Film Society of Lincoln Center. I sincerely and warmly send my congrats, but it's definitely bittersweet.

In my Berlin daze, I forgot to blog a happy birthday message to my dearest employer and friend, indieWIRE, who turned 14 last week. But since today is an even bigger day for ol' iW, I figured I do so belatedly before additionally congratulating them on some big news: Peter Bogdanovich will soon launch his own site as part of the indieWIRE Network of blogs and websites (called, yes, "Blogdanovich"), AND Chris Campbell has just joined us as the lead writer for the new Spout.com, a site that iW acquired earlier this year. A warm welcome to both. Additionally, indieWIRE has formally unveiled a number of new and enhanced ways to read our content anytime: Our new mobile site can be found at http://www.mobile.indiewire.com. So it's all very exciting, and I'm proud to be continuing my own now 4-year relationship with iW and look forward to whatever exciting evolution is in store in the coming years.

Before I return to regularly scheduled blogging (mainly end-of-decade/end-of-year lists, of which I'm seriously lagging behind), I figured I should get some final Dubai-related thoughts out of the way.
