About Me

Terence Towles Canote is a pop culture buff, nostalgia critic, television historian, and classic film buff. He was one of the original members of #TCMParty, the group of Turner Classic Movies fans who live tweet to films on the channel using that hashtag. On April 11 2015 he had the honour of introducing A Hard Day's Night (1964) on TCM with host Ben Mankiewicz as a Fan Favourite. He has contributed to Capper's Weekly, The Old Cowboy Picture Show, Silhouette Magazine, and other small press publications.

It was on June 4 2014 that Terence Towles Canote launched A Shroud of Thoughts. From the beginning the blog was dedicated to popular culture, although over time it would develop a definite emphasis on nostalgia. Today A Shroud of Thoughts is dedicated primarily to movies, television, print media, and music from the past.
