Blogging About Blogging

Every once in awhile, I like to go through all the sticky notes that are on my ancient monitor, which is nothing more than a reconstituted Zenith Color TV from the 1970s.

Anyway, here are various items of interest, and are mostly posted...for self-promotion, primarily. Just a few matters about the blog that I wanted to bring to your attention, before the usual caffeine-driven rantings and ravings.
  • When the current season of Doctor Who finishes, I'll take a break, but I'm looking for feedback on the next TV series/DVD watching and blogging feature. If you look at the sidebar on the right (past the Hypno Kitty), and scroll down to the bottom the gray area, there's a Blogger poll for you to take. Yes, I take requests, and like hearing from people who read this blog.
  • In addition, I'm also thinking of starting a "Five Questions" feature, where every so often, I e-mail one of my fellow bloggers and ask five seemingly random questions, and give an appropriate amount of turnaround time for answers. (The things I do for content...). Anyway, if you're interested, please feel free to e-mail me at blogspot (at) gmail (dot) com or leave a comment.
  • If you're planning on being at Wizard World Chicago on June 28th (that Saturday), please let me know - I'll swing by and visit your booth/meet you for a beverage/whatever you wish.
  • Wow, it's the first TV Party/Public Domain Drive-In Crossover! Worlds will live! Worlds will die! Roger will eat Oreos! Exclamation points will be used gratuitously!
  • And on that note, I would like to apologize for the layout of the column - I used Google Docs to write it, and it seemed to have been garbled in translation. Please do not hold it against myself or Chuck. But nonetheless, it's a fun read.
  • Speaking of word processing, new Open Office is Out!
  • I was going to post about Cloverfield, but didn't think it was worth the effort. Short form - Cloverfield is a movie in love with its own cleverness. It's a traditional monster movie script done with shaky cam. A real disappointment.
  • Finally, I don't like doing this because it smacks too much of PBS Pledge Drives - that, and I know we're all hurting financially. If you'd like to support this blog, please feel free to purchase an item from the Amazon.com store. In addition, one piece of web software I use is Backpackit - it's a company out of Chicago, and it's kind of like a mini-wiki. Fortunately, there is a free version (so you can try it before you buy it), and I use it to organize work and blog related stuff. If you'd like to check it out, click here.
Thanks for reading, and be sure to check out the blog this Saturday, where I not only review the latest Who episode...but I bash a Who author at the same time!

Unless you're doing the U.K. version of Cracker, don't bovver.

Ooh, you want Movies in 15 Minutes' Cloverfield review!

And she just did The Happening, too!

Actually, I am leaning towards the UK version of Cracker...especially since the US version is mostly taken from the UK version.
