I wanted to apologize for the lack of posts lately.
A year ago, Comet moved to Elkin, N.C. to work at my first reporting job at the Elkin Tribune, which I discussed in a the post Jessica Pickens: Girl Reporter.
A year later, I’ve moved on to a new job. Coming full circle, I’m now working in Shelby, N.C. at the newspaper I interned during the summer of 2010 when Comet Over Hollywood was born.
Do to the moving and lack of internet, I haven’t been able to continue the Classics in the Carolinas series.
In other exciting news, Turner Classic movies spotlighted Comet on their Twitter and Facebook page! In a moment of procrastination during packing, I took this photo:
I first started subscribing to the Turner Classic Movie Now Playing Guide in October 2003 and am currently still a subscriber. Since then I have kept every Now Playing Guide because of the great articles and covers, that usually feature the Star of the Month.
I posted the photo on Twitter and was retweeted by TCM and then put on their Facebook page and labeled as a “Super Fan” – A welcome treat to a bittersweet move.
Do you subscribe to the TCM Now Playing Guide? Have you kept them? What is your favorite cover?
Check out the Comet Over Hollywood Facebook page or follow on Twitter at @HollywoodComet.
You should have said in your tweet that you don’t currently have TCM – That’s still true, isn’t it? I like Claude Rains from November 1998 and Kay Francis’ cover from 2010? (Can’t remember the month). I saw it immediately in your “spread.”
Hope the move is going well. From the look of that photo, you definitely are your grandmother’s granddaughter! *wink*
Great photo of Cary Grant “helping you move”.
Since you’re working in Shelby, are you going to do a story about its most famous filmmaker: Earl Owensby?
That’s a lot of hats, young lady! The price of exquisite style. Poor Mr. Grant is almost certain to loose a little something off the top, alas. Still, he looks happy to help! A new adventure for you – such fun! Best of luck!!
Thank you for posting the picture of your Now Playing guides – I just used it to justify my own collection to my husband 🙂
You lucky folk in America. Here in the UK we have a very pale shadow of the US TCM. All these magazines look terrific.
Do you know anyone else who has a collection of Now Playing? I am looking to purchase some old issues.
