Bald Move 10th Anniversary

Hey guys and gals, wanted to take this moment to mark this date, March 24th, 2010, as the officially official 10th anniversary of Bald Move. Wish it were under more joyful circumstances, but even as somber and scary as the times were living in are... It's important to say thank you. I would have never ever believed this would happen to us, and it's all due to your word of mouth, support, sharing, subscribing, all these individual acts lead up to us doing this crazy thing for a decade. Bald Move accidentally became the longest job I've ever held at some point. It's amazing to think we almost gave up 2 years into it, and pivoted to TV talk on a total lark. 

Thanks for appreciating and supporting our weird blend of spices that make up Bald Move. I appreciate the folks who have been around from the beginning (I know 2 or 3 of you exist!), the second beginning (BrBa S4!), and even people discovering us last week. With all your help, we can do it for 10 more.

    10 years! So that would be gifts of tin or aluminum?
    Congratulations.

    I've been throwing hearts all over your social media posts today.  Here's another. :heart:
    Thank you for the last 6 (?) years since I started listening to you. (I think I joined the club for the first time 5 yrs ago and I was listening for a while before that.)  So many laughs, so many fun memories.  10 years of success couldn't have happened to two greater guys.  Here's to another 10.

    I want to let everyone who has supported us over the years know just how grateful I am. Even during the stressful times (and there have been many), Bald Move has been the most personally rewarding thing in my life. This experience wouldn't have been possible without all of you. Thank you for 10 amazing years!

  • A huge congrats to you guys. I only found you guys probably about 3 years or so ago but Bald Move instantly found it's way into my daily routine. I can't wait to see what craziness the next 10 years of Bald Move brings. Cheers guys.

    Congrats on ten years! I've been here close to 7, only officially about 5 once I realized how much free content I was getting and felt guilty. You guys have gotten better and better and with the addition of Cecily and Alexis, it's changed the game entirely.

    And thank you for cultivating a great community of fans! I don't personally know anyone on these forums but I've been interacting with so many good folks over the years they start to kinda feel like friends. Maybe that's weird, I don't know and I don't really care.  :)

  • Happy anniversary Bald Move. Thanks for 10 years of great entertainment.

    Been listening since the Night's Watch Podcast and have loved every minute of it. You guys almost single handedly transformed me from a Fox News Conservative into a bleeding heart, Bernie loving liberal. For that I will be forever grateful!

  • Season 4 of breaking bad I discovered Bald Move and many a commute, flight and long walk have been made easier with your good humour and great insights. Long may it continue!

    I worked out I’ve been kicking around for about 8 years - since about halfway through S2 of The Walking Dead, I think. 

    I’ve outgrown most of the TV and movie stuff, but I’m still in for the occasional show and of course the lunches and Swizzbold. 

    Edit: And all my kids in the forum!

    Oh, we braggin'? Let me in!  :D  I've been listening for 9 years. I have an email dated 2011, and didn't start BB until right after season 3 aired in 2010. It's not likely I found the podcast that year.

    You know, being a member of the Bald Move community has been pretty high up there for me, and I can imagine for others as well. It's one thing to be personally rewarded, it's a whole different ball game to inadvertently provide that amount of satisfaction to others.

    Started listening on Stitcher back in the Breaking Good days, and plan on being here until the wheels fall off.

    I have no idea how long I've been listening for. I do remember listening to the Night's Watch - so at least that long.

    Knowing that the Bald Move team is out there and making their dream a reality is a constant source of good feelings for me. While it's totally an asymmetrical relationship, I can't help but be happy for my Bald Move friends. That goes for the friends I've made in the community too. 

    Even in this uncertain time, there are many luxuries that will get the axe before my support for Bald Move.

    Congratulations on steering your own destiny.

    Have you ever discussed this transition from whatever you were doing before to TV Talk in a video - especially if you discussed what failed in the first 2 years?   If so, where can I find it?

    What we did before was Blue Yonder. You can listen to all 77 episodes here: http://baldmove.com/category/blue-yonder-mp3/

    It was just "2-3 dudes, talking about generic nerdy dude shit" that was already a saturated market when we tried it 10 years ago. It didn't fail, we just never got beyond an audience of 250-500, which was fun, but not something you could pay bills from, ya know?

    I'm not sure if we've formally discussed it. We probably did in some of those later BYs, or one of our Q/A streams. We did talk about it a bit on today's LWJ&A...

    You never know what a search for Game of Thrones podcasts on iTunes circa 2012/2013 will find you. I remember when Mad Brew left and I heard Jim for the first time thinking "Who the hell is this guy?" What a rabbit hole we've all gone down together listening to you all over the years. And I cannot be happier that we did. Thank you.
