I come in peace, bloggers. Just a casual post to check in with you and let you know what I have in store on my blog for the coming month or two.
This is the first announcement I have given, since the great blackout of 2014, so I am pleased to say that my blog has finally stabilised. While it has been a bumpy road, I have got some vague form of a routine back to my blog with articles being posted almost daily. One of the bigger changes is that I often do not post anything on a Sunday these days. This has become something akin to my day off, which lightens my load a little bit. Also, today this announcement will take the place of any music articles. I’d rather come up with something substantial than having to force something out onto writing, as I think you only deserve my posts that have had nothing but my undivided attention. I know that this means that my site has become very review-based, and I don’t really do dissections of movies anymore, but I don’t really have the time to come up with anything overtly original.
My schedule is going to be jam-packed over the summer with three jobs splitting my time. My main job is at a supermarket, which I am disliking more and more every day. I understand that it is not the kind of job I am meant to particularly enjoy and its purpose is to pay the bills, but it often sucks up time that I do not have. My second job is working with children with special needs. This job I love to pieces, but it is getting very demanding as of late and I might have to spend evenings swatting up on various medical conditions. Also, just around the corner is a potential third job, which I really cannot divulge any information on, as it is not my place to say. It could turn into nothing, but it is where my true passion for working lies and I am exciting to be a part of it. Then, there is of course this blog, which I try to squeeze into my life wherever I can. The standard article takes little time to write, but when I have to watch entire television seasons and the latest movies, it does become a very time-consuming project. I have absolutely no intention of giving it up, but I also need to make time for a fifth thing, my creative writing which could hopefully lead to more long-term employment. The irritating thing is that I had a week of free time to work on my extra-curricular writing, but I met a hot girl and… well, I lost a lot of time in her bed. No regrets.
But I am determined that this will not beat me. I have so much on the horizon and I am far too invested to just throw the Oracle of Film away, especially when it nearly crashed a few months ago. Tomorrow is the Question of the Month article, which is always an absolute blast to be a part of. This will be followed by review after review of current movies, TV and games, with a few classics I have been meaning to write about for a long time thrown in for good measure. June will of course feature a review of the fourth season of Game of Thrones, which is so beyond awesome, it needs a new word. Is SuperCinemaParrotDiscoExpealadoscious taken? Also, hopefully around August time, I will be focusing on some TV round-up of the year? I have decided that my blog shall recognise Fall, as the start of a new year in terms of TV, as it is easier to talk about the seasons, when they have all drawn to a close. We shall have Best Actor/Actress of 2014, Best Stand-Alone Episode, and a lot more. I am excited for that and the clear winners might not have it in the bag.
This is all on top of entries I have prepared for other blogathons. You saw my article for Zoe, but I have the Silver Screen Serenade and Shitfest coming up. My project for Cara could very well be the most fun and awesome thing I have made for WordPress yet. I cannot wait to share it with you.
Lot of love,
Luke ‘Slave to the Rhythm’ Abbott
