FS.net's Alex is Moving to Los Angeles!

Alex is moving to Los Angeles! I thought I'd let all of our faithful readers know that I'm moving this weekend from my humble home in Colorado Springs, Colorado to Los Angeles, California! I've been looking forward to moving for over a year and will finally be driving out all weekend long. Don't worry, this won't mean any major changes are coming. If anything, this will mean we'll be bringing you even more fantastic interviews, better feature articles, and more of the content you want to see. In addition to my move this weekend, I'm already preparing to hit the road again next week for a whirlwind tour starting at the Telluride Film Festival, then the Toronto Film Festival, then the Fantastic Fest in Austin, Texas.
If anyone is curious, my apartment is actually located in Sherman Oaks. I'm moving with a good friend named Harry from Colorado who'll be my roommate out here. If there are any LA locals who read the site, be sure to shoot me an e-mail and maybe we can get some drinks or lunch sometime. And if anyone else is curious, I'm not a newbie to LA. I've been there at least 20 times in the last two years (literally) since starting FS.net and I've come to appreciate the city, which is why I'm heading there. I'm not moving to try and become and actor or any of that, I'm moving because I've wanted to move somewhere and LA works best. At least we really will be able to connect Hollywood to its audience now!
I do have one request: I'm worried that it might be tough to stay connected with mainstream (e.g. non-Hollywood) moviegoers and the moviegoing experience outside of LA that I've come to love hear in Colorado. So I'm hoping that my loyal readers will help keep me grounded and in touch with the cinematic world that isn't entirely wrapped up in ego and looks. Otherwise, see you in LA!
