Still trying to make fewer excuses for the decrese in service and provide more content for the NYC rep film symbiote. The scene is changing, the tech is changing, dear god even my voice is changing, and I even recorded a song with Greg, Marcia, Bobby, Cindy and Jan to commemorate! I didn't intentionally put Jan last, it just seemed like where she'd wanna be. So if you're a regular follower of all things Nitrate Stock, there has definitely been a halt to some services, like my Twitter feed and the Facebook page. but if ya stick with, I promise to repurpose these and all other outlets for a more streamlined experience for you, the pale-skinned movie fanatic whose popcorn butter is 2% blood!
