In the first time in close to a year, I visited X-Entertainment today to read the sad news that the site has been dead for months now. This is a sad (albeit late) moment.
Both Weird Jon and I have been long-time fans of the site X-Entertainment.com (referred to as X-E from here on). It might be said that its Halloween Countdown was the inspiration for our own, and that it’s poignant commentary and humor that celebrated all things that we value here at GdL16 might have been a big influence on us years before we even bothered to sign up for a blogger account.
It was the recent sign-up for the 2012 Halloween Countdown that brought me back to see the recent posts by Matt about how X-E has been retired. He started last year’s countdown in September and I wanted to see if he was doing the same. Alas, the poor boy decided to put the site into the garage for good. After being associated with Ugo.com, going out on its own and providing over a decade’s worth of humor, Matt (founder and writer of X-E) has decided to rebrand himself with the new website, DinosaurDracula.com. He seems to be updating more frequently.
X-E isn’t going down. It’ll still be up so the articles and archives will remain available. Plus, why have someone squat on the domain and take a lucrative brand that Matt has spent so much time building up? But for new content, head over to DinosaurDracula.com.
