Hi, my name’s Dave.

(Hi Dave!)

You may remember me from such adventures as: the last few years and generally stealthing around like a motherfucker while letting Jom take all the blame for the real shit that went down.

Last year, I counted in Christmas with 12 days of excellent (and some not so excellent, but topical) Christmas songs. I’d intended to reprise the series this year but, as one or two of you might have noticed, I’ve taken my leave from this place, and Christmas seems as good a time as any to say a formal goodbye and let you know I’m not going to be back.

I won’t patronise you all by saying it’s been a pleasure. Mederating Sputnik is a labour of love but it is hard and, ultimately, unrewarding work. I have had good times taking care of this place over the years, but I urge you to spare a thought for Trey, Jom and Chan. They do an incredible amount of work that you never see – every single instance of bullshit you pull falls squarely on their shoulders and quite frankly they’ve all got more important things in their lives.

Well, not Chan.

But seriously, I’d like to leave on a positive note. Sputnik is a great place to learn – it’s afforded me the tools to become a professional writer and I’m sure I won’t be the only one. Sputnik was built on a sense of community and atmosphere whereby anybody was prepared to criticise anyone else and we all improved as a result. I hope this ethos won’t be lost.

As my parting gift, I offer you Dolph Lundgren’s Party Dungeon: my new favourite metal band. Here they are covering Mariah Carey’s ‘All I Want For Christmas’ in a way that only they can. Bye.

Wow. I just want to say,

I have enjoyed every one of your incarnations from splat to Donnelly and everything in between. Your Elvis reviews, unhealthy love for Britney and skills with the pen have made this place what it is. You've afforded a great deal of effort and patience towards the cause of Sputnik and I applaud you for that.

I am certain I speak for everybody when I say it has been your legacy that has given so many of us a reason to be here.

I wish you all the best Dave. And thank you again.

Merry Christmas, Jake

Last Christmas, I gave you my heart, and the very next day, you fucked a line cook from Applebee's.

Jom

I'm going to prank call your ass so hard every day. One day it's going to be Todd Lurfondlur; the next Mike Hunt-Hertz. Possibly Igar Guljiz will make an appearance soliciting mail-order brides from Scandinavia.

Merry Christmas, you filthy animal, and have a Happy New Year.
