Just a quick note to let you know that after a delay due to some technical issues — we would explain, but we don’t understand ourselves — we’ve now begun uploading the remainder of the old Fast Forward archives that we were gifted by the wonderful Mr. Gary Davies.
By the time you read this, hopefully most if not all of the remaining 18,000+ stories, interviews, reviews and even horoscopes and Video Vulture bequeathed unto us will be now available in our FFWD REW section. Or, if there was something specific you were looking for from the last decade or so of the beloved Calgary weekly, please use the handy-dandy search feature and scroll away.
Please note that there are still a few glitches we need to work through, with none of the photos or illustrations having uploaded, and some of the listings appearing as articles — we’ll work on cleaning that up in the coming weeks. Also, for some strange reason, none of the commas from the stories made it in the transition — so very, very weird — so if you run across what you think is a run-on sentence, that likely is not the fault of the fine author, but the unknowable land of com-pu-tors.
If you have any questions or concerns, please email us at email@example.com and let us know.
Again, it’s not perfect, but we’re doing what we can do to preserve a pretty important part of the city’s social and cultural history.
