17th September 2004 - around about teatime (quote anyone?) we had our 1,000,000th visitor. Not bad for something a Cockney bastard knocked up in a week in a bid to get freebies out of film companies? If only it were true of course.
The truth... The Spinning Image is in its fourth year now (though I hasten to add we've had that million hits in little over a year.). That week of development has turned into more like months and I can see it's obviously never-ending.
I guess I should thank those that have made it possible... choke... ahem... Graeme Clark (from A Summer Place which started the ball rolling (and who's still going strong over 500 reviews later - does this man sleep?); Steve Langton whose enthusiasm for film is amazing, and can always find a silver lining in any black cloud; Daniel Auty for pulling some real gems out of the bag (yeah - we had the first Kill Bill review in the UK and weren't the rest sick!). I shouldn't leave out our newer reviewers either... Wayne, Pablo, Jason et al... but really... I think all that needs to be said is thank you all... and let's get to the 2M mark in half the time!
