In the end it all became far too much work and dealing with internet trolls was a hassle. So I stopped the web stuff and semi "retired" from the hobby. I do still write for a biannual magazine called Grindhouse Purgatory which you can get from Amazon.com (cheap plug!). But the internet was/is dead to me.
So why the Blog? Occasionally I still get the itch to write a review or rant about something that annoys me. I figure that a Blog is the perfect solution. I don't have any deadlines or people counting on me. When writing for other sites I always felt some pressure to make sure I had an article or review ready to go for them. And running my own site was even worse because I got screeners constantly and I didn't want to disappoint or let them down by not covering what was sent. A crappy little blog that no one will likely ever read and that comes with no deadlines or pressure seems like a great way to go.
So here we are. Well I suppose we might be a stretch. But if you are reading this then I hope you enjoy it. I can assure you that I've had fun watching movies, reviewing, and ranting about them.
