The Month in Review: January 2015 | Jan. 30, 2015


by InRO Staff, etc. (Intro’d by Sam C. Mac)

January saw inactivity from this site, while our focus shifted to two distinct projects: Kicking the Canon, the site of our retrospective series on the best films and albums of the last century, and In Review Online: The Outpost, the new home of all our contemporary film and music reviews.

With this re-gifting of the torch comes an era of great change here at InRO, one I can’t entirely divulge, yet. Suffice it to say, let’s have a moment of silence for what we have been as we anxiously await what we will become... In preparation for all this, the InRO site proper will be going dark for about a month or so—all the more reason to follow this new project, then, which offers not only a sense of ... [Read More]
