The Velvet Café

A room for thoughts about movies

The lazy days are coming to an end

Hello, hello, hello!

Testing, testing… ahem. OK, let’s give this a try. Is there anybody out there?

I guess not. It doesn’t take more than a few weeks of radio silence from a blog before you consider it gone and move to some other place for drinks and banter about movies. Honestly I don’t blame you; I’m just the same.

Well, I know there’s at least one reader out there who is waiting for a sign of life, Klep who has followed me on my blogging adventures for years. He even wrote me a worried letter. So this is for you: I assure you I haven’t stopped blogging and everything is just fine.

I’ve just been on a long needed vacation and I was too busy before I left to even put a note on the door as I usually do on my blogging holidays. I’m sorry about that.

Two weeks in the remote, Wi-Fi free parts of Provence was just what I needed and I enjoyed it so much that I extended my absence from the webs a little bit further, allowing myself to thrive in the mood of summer laziness. But enough is enough.

Ordinary posting will be resumed shortly as soon as I’ve done some cleaning up in this place. Three weeks of absence and it looks like a mess.

My passion for movies is as strong as ever. I’ve watched a whole bunch of films I have yet to write about and I can’t wait to hear your thoughts on them. Expect zombies, men of steel and a whole bunch of criminal young women to appear hear in the next few days.

Now allow me to offer you a drink on the house while you’re waiting. Cheers!

  1. Welcome back, Jessica! … You really haven’t missed much – one of the worst summers in years.

    • Thank you! Well, we’ve got a somewhat different scheduling of movies in Sweden. Some movies that were shown long time ago in other places open here now, others won’t open for some time. But yeah, the block busters haven’t been all that good, have they? Apart from Star Trek. I loved that!

  3. Cool. Glad you had a good time 🙂 I’m currently in the airport myself. Traveling for work, though

    • Hey there! Travelling for work isn’t the worst, provided you can sneak in a little bit of time for yourself.

  4. Fantastic Jessica! It has been a while! Hope you had a great vacation and I can’t wait to read your new stuff!

    • Hey there! It’s been a while, though time has passed very quickly for me, as it does when you’re on a vacation…

  5. Woo! Welcome back! I’m glad you were able to enjoy the break.

    • Thank you! I certainly did, but it’s nice to be back too, catching up as much as I manage (a reader with 600+ unread posts is a bit daunting.)

  6. I’m adding this to my list of grievances against the French. Glad to see you’re back!

  7. I noticed your absence too and just regularly kept checking my mailbox for new posts. Happy to see you are back and had a well deserved holiday!
