Plans for Next Few Months

Even though things haven't been hopping and bopping on here, my brain has been zapping with many article ideas. Some of these article ideas are ones that I hope to be able to convince a well paying magazine or site to be its host. There are others that I know will live much happier here and so that is where they will be posted. The point is that there will be lots to read from me over the next several months.

Here are a few things you can expect to see on the blog over the next few months:

There will be timely theatrical reviews for the big motion picture events this July in Spider-Man: Homecoming, War for the Planet of the Apes, and of course the biggest of them all, Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets.

I will be upping the retro movie reviews including not just written version of what will be on the podcast over the next two months, but as well, in-depth reviews of the first four Alien movies.

This may not happen until near the end of August, but I will be starting the weekly serialized fiction story that I've been squawking about this year.

I've had a piece about the rising adversity between liberals and conservatives that I'm finally going to gut out and post. I'll also have some Trump stuff that mainly revolves around his obsession with media and how the state of journalism has caused many of the issues but not the way Trump claims.

Like above, I will be writing more pieces that are pop culture focused but not specifically movies. One of the more complex pieces that I'm working through is how when a celebrity is accused of a crime like rape and even when the evidence is irrefutable, some circles treat them like the victim just because they liked their TV show.

I have several personal pieces about parenting that have been germinating and stewing. The big one is my own working through the fact that my little boy is heading into Grade 1 and how that is a much bigger deal for me than him. I'm hoping to write a lot more honest and personal pieces over the next few months.

I want to start channelling the type of pieces that I wrote on here from 2010 to 2013. I want to do more humour pieces or things that are outright bizarre, but also more reflection on all the zaniness that is going around this world.

I have tribute pieces that are in some cases years old that I want to write because it is the best way I process things. I will definitely have some pieces on Carrie Fisher, Shirley Temple, and Roddy Piper.

A bunch of other stuff that is super secret, mostly because I can't remember it at the moment. I can't give specific dates for when stuff will arrive because currently, all these pieces just exist inside my head and may turn out very differently once the writing process begins.
