Personal responsibility

There are lots of things I want to do. Creative type things. So this blog is about to be a repository of such things. Hopefully it’ll make a little more accountable for generating content. So no more just movie reviews, but just things I make.

I also want to revive my list feature, but those are best done in the heat of the moment, not after cooled consideration.

Review: reviews

I think my reviews aren’t so good so far. I’m really just typing out thoughts without any kind of structure. I don’t necessarily have a review format, but I’m not sure I want a format (e.g. review plot, characters, acting, etc. in order) versus something a little more free flowing. I’m still just back into this, so I’m playing it by ear and I’m hopeful that something will materialize at some point.

New stuff

Okay, so once again, maybe because the new year rolled around, maybe because it’s just caught my interest again, but I’m going to try to keep this blog running a little better. I’m not promising anything, but I hope to post at least twice a week. Ambitious, I know. At the very least I’m going to post a review of every movie I watch. And perhaps select TV shows too. Not so much because there’s a dearth of review sites or that I think I could do it better. But mainly as a way to put down my thoughts on said viewing and catalog said thoughts. So here’s to hoping this re-found focus will continue on (if you’re betting, I’m putting the over/under on number of weeks before I stop at 4. Better to bet the under… but I’m TRYING.)

I need to blog more

It’s a little pathetic how much less I blog these days. I was thinking of writing a ranting piece on a wired article I read but lost steam. Though now that the tweets appear here I guess that’s kind of a solution/compromise.

Almost already missed a day

Jeez, the rebirth of (This Might Interest) Maybe just me was almost short lived.

Umm, here’s Gladwell’s latest piece from the New Yorker about criminal profilers.

What I take from it (gross oversimplification here) is that they are nothing more than palm readers.

Happy Thanksgiving folks.  If I bother finishing setting up my computer (I installed Leopard on my PowerBook last night) (i.e. download and installing ecto) perhaps I’ll blog over the holiday break.  Not to say no ecto prohibits me from blogging since I’ll have wifi accessibility.  Hmm, maybe I’ll jump onto Twitter for real this weekend, and figure out a way to update my twitter to my blog.  Since it’s easier for me to twitter via my phone when I’m not in a wifi hotspot, than to blog… ugh, already too complex.

edit: Kottke doing the Twitter already!  Can’t lift any more than I already do from the man himself, so no Twitter on the blog.
