With the blog’s return to the world of all things interneting this past week I feel it’s important to bring this little thing back up to speed. While I won’t waste my time updating you on the entire last 2+ months of forgotten watches I’ll just stick to the week at hand.
A day late but still interested in keeping my weekly log going. If nothing else this feature should keep my fingers nimble in typing.
It’s been a weird week for me. I can actually say that for the last seven days I’ve found myself not at the cinema and beginning to question why I obsess so much about going there. It’s not that I’m taking a break from movies, as much as I keep wondering why I’m not taking a break from my cinema. If you listen to my podcast (TUMP) then you’ve heard me and my cohosts over the years talk about our local cinema, Carib 5, and how much we hate it. Oddly enough my most recent complaints aren’t so much about their service — which I’ve come to terms with rather than saying it’s improved with in any way — but rather just about it’s location and how I constantly feel like going there. There isn’t a minute that I spend walking from the car park to the box office or in the opposite direction that I’m not accosted by all the things I hate about Kingston. That being: redundant security guards that don’t really do anything; or street vendors that don’t seem to realize I have zero interest in them; or beggars who have begun to recognize me — because I’m that one white guy they see every week — and begin to make me feel guilty directly about everything; or the occasionally other patron who can’t seem to figure out how a line works.
It’s another week out and the blog got super neglected. While I definitely made some headway with a post that I’m hoping to tidy up tomorrow for a midweek publish I definitely failed to produce this week. I did get The Movies You Love up again with the latest episode where I talked to Shane about The Graduate as well as a post about podcasting where my friend decided to hit me up for tips and tricks of the trade which oddly enough lots of people loved to my surprise. Not like I thought I knew a thing or too.
I'm Andrew, a software developer/all around technologist by day and a film enthusiast by night. I grew up on the silly things of Star Wars, Indiana Jones, The Three Amigos and Nightmare on Elm Street, so it makes perfect sense to me to have my love for film become ever expanding by the minute.
I started writing about film somewhere about 2005 on Facebook, and slowly but surely I moved on to blogging here on the internet. I've been featured with a few other publications along the way and am always looking for the opportunity to do more with this passion of mine.
So enjoy the words, listen to the many podcasts I'll do in the years to come, and let me know what you think.
