Happy America Day, everybody.
Hope you’re eating some wieners and drinking some ice cold Narragansett lager (only if you’re of legal age and always in moderation). After all, today is a holiday, one that comes about as often as one of my blog posts.
This post is about changing that.
I find that I’ve hogtied and hamstrung myself with the kinds of posts I make. Everything so far has been a relatively dense look at the making and reception of a movie or a stylistic comparison between films and filmmakers. I used that framework to make sure whatever I wrote was worthwhile, that I wasn’t just writing to write (which isn’t devoid of merit, though not necessarily to the reader). On account, I’ve doubted my way out of more posts than I’d care to admit. I attempted some themed reviews, but I managed to talk my way out of continuing those, too.
I have no excuses for my paltry output, at least none valid.
So from here on out, I’ll be writing a lot more standard reviews and general opinions about trends in film and filmmaking.
Why did I feel the need to write all this out to you?
Because I try to write like the world is reading, like this is a real site with a real audience. So on this, our Independence Day, I declare I’ll be turning out more stuff from now on.
If I don’t, somebody, I don’t know, step on my foot or something. It’ll get the point across.
In the mean time, throw in a movie, make some Kool-Aid and listen to the drunk neighbors blowing up the sky.
Just don’t go in the water.
