Pay attention to me, you sons of bitches!

Good. Hi. Hello.

I, my good folks who let blog headlines tell them what to do, am in a quandarry. I spiffle. A kerfuffle. Um. Other nonsense words of similar implications. With double consonants.

I haven't seen a movie properly for quite a few weeks. It's...empty-making? Is that a thing? Too bad, it is now.

Maybe it's been the start of school. Maybe the extinguishment of my soul (the two go hand-in-hand, after all). Maybe it's been my sudden time-suck of a hobby, comic books (the DC reboot certainly isn't helping jack shit). Maybe it's some other shit I haven't had the foresight to pull out my ass. But, you know. As it goes.

So. I apologize for lack of worthwhile (or any) content. Because I can't very well turn this into a all-Nightwing-all-the-time blog. That's Tumblr territory. No, sir, all I can do is wait for that bit of movie-moodifying (word. Patented. As of now. Deal with it) to strike. I know. Baited breath.

Meanwhile, you all have been quite busy. I shall investigate! I SHALL!

Or I will. If you want to rain on my Ye Olde Parade.

I feel your pain -- the same empty-making thing happened to me last spring before graduation, when schoolwork got really intense. It's disorienting and hard to cope with.

Good luck getting back on the movie train!

I find that if you can manage school and a blog you are way more time-efficient than most people.

As much as I miss your delicious movie posts I understand that there are other things besides blogging! I hope things get less stressful/empty-making soon!

Andreas, Fitz, Alex: Oh, my darlings, how you care.

Castor: Shut up, yes you will.

Simon, we're all in the same boat-I just realized the only movies of note I've seen all Summer were Scream 4 and Insidious. School is more important than anything, though, (saith the guy who never finished college).

Take a break from movie watching! Indulge in it. And eat something unhealthy.

Yeah, Si' I took a post-9/11 sabbatical because a) I couldn't write, and didn't want to write about what i'd seen, b) I didn't want to see anything muchly, c) my heart was broken in several places, and d) finding a job was the most pervasive thing on my mind.

And...everything resolved. Have I seen anything? Nah, not much. But, I'm getting out there...um...tomorrow. Sill, the DCnU, I'm sure, has enough distress in it to set those brain-cells a scrambling into criticality. Reason enough to be content, me thinks.
