You may be a lover but you ain't no dancer

I think (hope) I'm finally back in business. Firstly, as Special K mentioned, my PC died on me (don't they always?). After I got that up and running again, my usual problems (with health and such) really messed me up. It has been an extremely frustrating time for me, falling further and further behind and not being able to do a damn thing about it. But that's just the way life is; you have to take the bad with the good. I'm glad to now be getting back into taking some good again!
Buttonhole's Assistant Editor, Australian Ninja, did a superb job of filling in while I was gone. He went on a preposterously prolific reviewing rampage! Thanks, Ninja, for making sure our readers still had some cool stuff to read at Buttonhole whilst old Sammy was all screwed up. From now on, when I am sick, or busy or away for any other reasons, Aussie Ninja will help by posting not only his own reviews and articles, but also those from some of our other crew (thus making him our "Assistant Editor" in every sense of the title). He and I had actually intended this to be the case for quite some time but, due to circumstances beyond either of our control, we've only just been able bring the plan to fruition.
On the topic of our content and contributors, we're hoping to get back to presenting you with more material from a wider range of authors. For example, Ichibod is returning to help with our anime coverage and Hatchy will be here again with some more music reviews. If all goes according to plan, they should be joined by a few other people who are set to make their triumphant Buttonhole returns (or debuts). More content, from a wider array of writers, sounds good to me. As the saying goes, "variety is the spice of life", so I am most pleased about these developments.
Another thing I'm pleased about is a certain "super-heroic" fellow I'll be introducing to everyone in the very near future. His name is Captain Buttonhole and he shall be this website's official mascot. I think you're going to like him. As a matter of fact, he confidently assures me that everyone will love him. He boasted to me about his intentions to "make a huge an impact and shake things up around here". We shall see. But, when Captain Buttonhole does appear, he will be providing our readers with some chances to win some cool free stuff - that kind of thing always goes over pretty well.
Before I forget, when my PC was down I lost a few messages from my Buttonhole email account. So if anyone sent something & didn't hear back from me, that's the most likely reason. Please do send them again, because I love hearing from you guys and I always try to reply to readers & help out as best I can with any questions.
That'll do it for now. Thanks for all being so cool.
