(Glang. Glangalangalangalang.) Nobody does it better. Makes me feel sad for the rest. Nobody does it quite the way you do, baby baby... darlin YOU'RE THE BEST.

doctornecessiter has been consistently posting great posts on FanFare which lead to great discussions.

Thanks for the outstanding series of posts for the bond_club.

Obligatory. (Also obligatory.)

Seconding that doctornecessiter is the best and Bond Club has been great! I am both thrilled to share Spectre with my fellow Bond Club members and sad that Bond Club will end with Spectre...at least for now...because

JAMES BOND WILL RETURN

PSA: the best Metafilter comment ever about James Bond.

I saw the best headline on reddit:

"With Spectre only one week away: What is your least favorite James Bond movie? And why is it 'Die Another Day'?"

OMG: so bond_club could now do the books as well?

It could indeed! But we should probably mostly talk about books stuff in the books thread; I didn't mean to distract from the radness that has been the ongoing bond_club posting doctornecessiter has been getting up to.

This is so great, I'm glad so many are enjoying the posts! A small group of us have been getting together weekly to watch the movies in advance of the posts...The last few years I've been watching the series roughly annually, but usually they end up being on the background while I'm doing other things around the house...It's been really refreshing to pace myself and give each one proper attention, along with some folks who haven't seen all of them. I love that that group and the participants in the posts have remained fairly consistent through the whole series since May.

You might have noticed lately that the post goes up on Thursday mornings but then several hours/days go by before I chime in on the threads myself...I've recently started a new job at which I don't have the opportunity to do much Mefi-participating during the week day -- previously my prime time, but I've very much enjoyed reading the threads.

Home stretch for the official movies, everyone! I've read a couple of the books and have a few more handy, but if bond_club is going to continue into the books (which it most definitely should) I should probably pass the baton to someone with a better sense of that series (like, for instance, I don't know...After Fleming, is there anything worth digging into?).

I haven't popped into all of the threads but as a lifetime Bond fan (they were movies I watched with my dad on TV when I was little) the series has been a delight to me. Thanks for setting it up!

And now I'm singing Carly Simon in my head.

Thanks.

I've had that damn song looping in my head for a week now. It's very well done actually. I thought Carly Simon wrote it but turns out the lyrics are by Carole Bayer Sager.

Excellent.

Spectre. That's a wrap, I guess - until the next Bond film. Brilliant.
