This Blog Needs an Enema

Yeah...so...how ya been? Look, obviously, I've been in this situation before. In the last five posts, probably half of them have been explanations/excuses. Well, here's another one, but I'll just make it as inclusive as possible so any time there's another late post after an absence, you can just refer to this one post instead of me cluttering the feed with them, though I hope there won't be much need to in the future.

In the face of a shit economy and the eternal battle of family health problems, life hasn't been easy, as I'm sure it hasn't been for many others so I'm not going to run on and whine when I know you have your problems and so does the next guy and neither one of you need to hear someone else's. Anyway, such things obviously eat at any such writing time, as much as I hate it. I'm currently hanging around New York for a few months in the hope for a new job and a new place to live. In the meantime, I find I have the time to work on writing projects again, finally.

So, expect more posts coming again for at least the foreseeable future, though they will be slightly retooled. The idea to write about every new movie I saw was a good one, but under the weight of time and obligations, it became a foolish one. I have an entire notebook filled with notes and lists of what I watched in the hopes of writing about them and there's just no way I'll ever be able to catch up. Plus, I found myself sacrificing quality for quantity, trying to get through as many blurbs in as short a time as possible. I think out of that whole Road to 500 business, there was about three write-ups I actually feel were decent, and I have no idea why, but the Hellhounds one still strikes me as funny. (It reminds me of a post I saw by Tycho of Penny Arcade fame where he commented on one of the strips by saying it was one of those fleeting examples of quality writing he wished he could attain every time he touched ink to paper, or digits to pixels in our current state I guess.) But, moving on, I'm going to selectively pick what will be written and go a little more in-depth in the writing, as well as carrying on with the various features I had planned as I think they'll be fun.

Finally, if you're reading this, thank you for coming back, and I hope we'll both be here for a while.

  1. I feel the same way about my site. What started out as a 2 man project became one, me, and then we picked up another dude, who posted a handful of times, then it was back to only me. And, I have yet to find any inspiration to write about anything lately, even though I still drudge through tons of movies. I saw your site referenced on Freddy In Space, so thought I'd check it out. Good work, keep it up.
