I try to post at least twice a month on this blog, but June has been doing a number on me. My weekends have been consistently busy and my post for this month was devolving into a cranky, unfocused rant… and I don’t want to turn this blog into a receptacle for grouchiness. There’s enough of that already, both online and off. I like to keep this place positive, so for this month I’m going to have to sit out.
I do have at least three posts in line for next month, so that should make up for the deficiency this June. There will be the usual short of the month, as well as a birthday tribute to William Wyler and a contribution to the Singin’ in the Rain blogathon hosted by The Classic Movie Muse.
I’m also hoping to put out my first audio commentary up before autumn rolls around. I’ve wanted to record some for a long time now– like ever since the earliest days of my movie geekdom. Listening to the great James Bond commentaries from YouTuber Damn Fool Idealistic Crusade inspired me to finally get off my butt and do one of my own instead of just thinking about it but never actually doing it out of fear of making a fool of myself. For this first one, I’ve picked Wait Until Dark, a 1967 Audrey Hepburn suspense-thriller and one of my favorite films ever. Hopefully, it will be the first of many because there’s nothing I love more than researching and discussing the movies I’m passionate about. And who knows? That might eventually evolve into my making video essays, another long-time wish of mine… but one step at a time.
I guess this is just a long-winded way of saying, I haven’t jumped ship on this blog like I did back in 2015. For the 4.5 people who probably read this website, be at ease.
PS I did not forget about creating a site index page. Hoping to get that done ASAP.
