Rocketboom dies on the launchpad

Magical Wednesday Update: Rocketboom still a dud, bloggers running out of headline puns. (But this post is still worth reading.)

Stop toying with us, Rocketboom! Days after host Amanda Congdon left, the video blog was still a no-show on Monday. This morning the front page promised "Rocketboom 2.0." Now the 'Boom taunts viewers with a fake-out shot and a message from producer Andrew Baron:

Hold it, hombre. Andy makes it sound like Amanda was carrying the entire show in her little arms. What was it he said yesterday?

Fact: Over 95% of the directed episodes in the history of Rocketboom were directed by me.

Fact: I have edited well over 50% of all of the episodes.

Fact: I have Produced every single episode.

Fact: I have Published every single episode.

Fact: I have found/picked over 90% of all of the stories that we have ever used.

Fact: Don't talk the talk if you can't walk the walk.
