The Black Dog Newsletter August 13 – September 3rd “Taking a Break Edition!”



Just wanted to say thanks to all who shot us great ideas on how to keep on keepin’ on last week. Some really good suggestions that we’re mulling over. We want to be able to provide all of you fine folks with the best selection of world cinema around for a long long time. That said, I’ll be stepping out of my writing pants for a brief respite so there won’t be another newsletter until the beginning of September. Oh stop it, you’ll be fine!
