The End Times

Tonight's the last night for our old set. After the show ends, we begin crating up pieces for storage. They'll strike the set completely early next week while we tape shows in the Tech Live studio. The show will be dark tomorrow and all next week. The programs we're taping next week will air in October while we rehearse on the new set which is supposed to be completed by then. The new set is much more modern, lighter and airy, and will be much easier for us to work with. I'll miss the basement, though. I have so many fond memories here, going all the way back to our first shows in May 1998. I am trying to get a hold of Kate to get her into the studio tonight to join us for the farewell. It would be nice to have a last dance with her on the old set. It's also the end of the line for the Screen Savers Theme and the show open. We're shooting a new open today and tomorrow.

I'm looking at the changes with some sadness. The two shows I created on ZDTV are no longer recognizably mine, for better or for worse. I guess I should feel lucky to have had four amazing years doing this. I have no idea what the next four years hold - or how big a role I'll have in the development of these shows - but for the time being I'm here and The Screen Savers will keep doing the best Geek TV we know how, whether we're in the basement or not. If these walls could talk...
