If you’re a constant reader, you’ve probably noticed my productivity has dropped a notch (or several) recently. This post was originally supposed to go live at the end of September, and here we are well into October. Well, there’s a reason for that: it’s back-to-school time. I started grad school the day after Labor Day, pursuing a master’s in communications with an emphasis in media studies, and it’s a lot of work. On top of that, the kids are getting older, work is getting busy, we’ve had some recent family emergencies, and life is moving fast. So, posts will probably be closer to once a week; consider anything else a bonus :-). But I haven’t forgotten about my plans to tackle the BBC’s top 100 films of the 21st century (I’m working on my “Mulholland Drive” piece now; it’s complicated), and I’m planning some new features. I’m hoping to get to a few movies in the coming weeks; Ava Duvernay’s “13th” and Nate Parker’s “The Birth of a Nation” are both worthy of some discussion. And I’m sure the election will dredge up some political issues.
But while I haven’t been writing as much, I have been consuming some really fun, great stuff that I can’t wait to talk about. So, let’s get started!
