“It must be weird not having anybody come on you.” – Showgirls
And after nearly five years of writing tens of thousands of posts here in the Royal We, it feels weird writing this one in the first person. As of today, I will be stepping down from the day-to-day editorial oversight of Fleshbot and will be assuming the august title of Founding Editor on the masthead to your left. It’s something to be proud of; I just hope that the Current Fiscal Unpleasantness won’t preclude my being assigned half-naked interns to pick up whatever papers that “accidentally” fall off my desk. It’s amazing how one gets used to certain perks after a while.
In any case, it’s been a fun ride, and I’m happy to know that my very capable colleague and pal Lux will be steering it from this point on. And I hope you’ll all be sticking around for a long time to, yes, come–we, and I, couldn’t have done it without you.
