A blog written by a couple of guys and gals writing from work and home, trying to find a way to make the days go by slightly faster. We bicker, fight, argue, bullshit, laud and damn anything we might find of interest or amusement. It started out with mostly talking about movies, but these days we write about whatever we feel like.
For a blog written by a bunch of people with nothing better to do, it’s odd how many have read it.

Regular contributors (in order of number of blog posts written)
Recently relocated to Chicago from the hellhole of Dallas, and loving every minute of being there, even the hour-long “L” rides. Saw 130+ movies in theaters each of the last two years, and will easily blow by that this year, given the vast array of reperatory screenings available in Chicago (see constantly updated list here). Writes a weekly post of movies opening in his hometown (i.e., Chicago), and film reviews when he feels like it. Stridently liberal, and always looking for the chance to exploit your xenophobic and Christofascist tendencies ready for a political argument. Currently unemployed. Job offers and other email can be sent to brian_goneelsewhere-AT-yahoo-DOT-com.
Location: Vegas, Baby!
I’m much older than the other whippersnappers here, a baby boomer. I tend to be more snobbish about film, disdaining a lot of the multiplex fare for “cinema.” My favorite films: Woody Allen’s oeuvre (up until about 1990), The Godfather, The Graduate, A Hard Day’s Night, Pulp Fiction.
Politics: Well, George McGovern was my political hero. I’m also a prickly atheist.
Occupation: Poised to be an English teacher in Las Vegas. For many years I was an editor at Penthouse Magazine.
My role on this blog seems to be writing lots of reviews and being the resident Oscar maven.

I comment on other people’s comments. Christofascist? I’ll have to get back to you.

Is an infrequent but regular poster on film (averages about one post a month). His contributions could be best summed up as a mixture of film/actor reviews and reflections (and documentation) on cinema history.

Filmman, an independent filmmaker/photographer based in the Northeastern US, was one of our most prolific commenters. He departed under mysterious circumstances in the Summer of 2014 after severing all social media connections to the Gone Elsewhere team without explanation. He even deleted us on Goodreads. Who takes the time to delete someone on Goodreads?
Used to post here but left in something of a fit in 2008. Then proceded to remove all his posts and comments. If you’re reading some of our old comments and don’t understand who or what we’re talking about, then we’re most likely speaking to jaydro. That’s the excuse we use anyway.
