Well hey there blog and the people who read it. Been a while, mostly because my need to discuss media has been channeled elsewhere for the past few weeks. This semester I’m working as a columnist for The Daily Trojan, with an article running every Friday in a series called “Fandomination.” Here’s a piece on Whedon, for instance. There are five or six others, so far. It’s fairly basic, informational stuff so that people who aren’t already indoctrinated with devotion to the things I love can learn a little and, hopefully, check it all out for themselves.
More exciting, though, is something new I’ve started with a few friends—The Post Credits Podcast. We talk about newly released movies, though we’ll branch out whenever we have something else we’d like to discuss. It’s been really fun so far, and I think it’s genuinely enjoyable to listen to if you’re open to this sort of thing. I’ve spent a lot of time listening to podcasts like this, and there’s no question that I’ve wanted to try my own hand at doing one for quite a while. It’s very fortunate that I have like-minded friends to do it with, and so far I’m pretty happy with the content. Hopefully a lot more to come. If you’re at all interested, check it out! Even better—rate, review, and subscribe to us on iTunes. Oh, and any emails sent to firstname.lastname@example.org will get discussed on the show.
Beyond that, everything’s been going well. Breaking Bad was excellent. Fall TV is back in force. Movies are starting to live up to my expectations after a largely disappointing summer season. I’m making my way through a giant stack of literature that I’m sure I’ll write about in depth here as I progress. Just finished season three of Buffy last night, and I’ll have thoughts on that posted soon.
So that’s what’s new with me.
