The end of the-lfb.com has been a long time coming. It’s kind of amazing it survived past the end of 2013, when founder Eoin Breathnach and the majority of the site’s initial writers abandoned it. Attempts to recruit new long-term contributors were ultimately unsuccessful. Major thanks go to Dean Ricciardi and Steve Duffy for sticking with the site all this time.
But eventually it’s time for all of us to move on. Writing, editing, and moderating The-LFB has been something I’ve done in my spare time when I’m not doing schoolwork (which as a film student overlaps with much of my creative work). But I’m about to graduate, and with the need to get a paying job in addition to time for my creative endeavors, I don’t have the time or effort to keep up the site. Dean’s also ready to move on after two years of weekly articles on a site that’s generally failed to reach a larger audience. Steve has projects of his own, hoping to create a new site similar to The-LFB with fresh talent and stronger financial backing.
We hope you’ve enjoyed our site these past two years.
