...Well, at least it's the moment we've been waiting for anyway: the revised Gallery is now OPEN to the public. We still have a few more photos coming to us soon and screenshots of other movies that will be added over time, but this is a vast majority available to the public now. We'll also be working to make some of the smaller pixel photos larger and similar in size to some of the screen and publicity shots. Alas, that may come after the holidays!
We're housing it offsite in a venue that is easy, fun, allows for fan comments of individual photos, and allows us to change settings quickly as needed, by creating password-access galleries for mature audiences, changing backgrounds and other technical dynamics and so on and so forth. Right now, though, it's all-access-all-the-time. We're excited to finally have one place for all photos; if you enjoy it as much as we do, feel free to let us know at the site!
We also added the new trailer to Made of Honor (it's only a teaser really since Kevin, oddly enough, doesn't actually get speaking time) and should have an older, but interesting, Scotland Magazine article (about Kevin's early family life) up before the latest "Journeyman" episode airs this week. By the way, if you aren't watching "Journeyman" and you have an opportunity to do so, well, we just don't know what to think of you. We may be a little biased because of Kevin, but it also really is THAT good. We love this show so don't forget to watch!
Now for even more non-subliminal plugs, we're continuing to receive fan submissions for Kevin's Christmas care package via various methods. If you want to take part in the project but have a different method in mind than those listed, run it by us and we'll do what we can to help. We understand the 1 month deadline is strict, especially for people relying on mailing options outside the U.S. (and there are MANY of you, which is fantastic), but we also needed to take care of things before everyone disperses for Christmas. Remember that you can write to the William Morris Agency address (see the fan forum for details) at any time while Kevin is in the States as well.
Finally, we want to issue a warm welcome and introduction to Leanne, our new moderator of the Kevin McKidd Online message board and chatroom, which is linked in the Fan Forum area of this site. A long-time fan of Kevin's, she is graciously volunteering her computer background and expertise (while also being full-time mom to a 2 year old; we're in awe). Like so many fans, she also resides outside the States, which lends creedance to how important it is to us that we make this site beneficial for Kevin fans and friends around the globe. She has already made some helpful changes and will be instrumental in helping us so that we continue to update news, photos, and multimedia in a timely manner. The message board will also become an integral part of fan fun activities in 2008; those that register their name and email address through the board will be the first to know of any global contest or official Kevin McKidd Online fan interactive in future (completely spam-free, occasional emails when warranted, of course; we don't like spam either).
Whew, it's been a productive vacation. Now where's that turkey....
