Here it is: a blog.
A couple of friends have suggested that I should find some output for my interests, and starting a blog has been on my mind for a while, so I’ve decided to give it a try and see how it goes.
It looks very basic at the minute. I just wanted to get the thing set up to start with and get some content on here, and then I can start altering and obsessing over the appearance.
It’ll mostly be comic book, film and television related. When I’m not at work, I spend most of my time either reading or watching something, so this is my attempt at trying to turn it into something constructive.
I’ve been needing a ‘project’ of some kind for a while, pretty much since I graduated from University. They won’t be the most articulate write ups you’ll read online, especially at first, but they’ll be an open and honest opinion.
The first ‘column’ I’m going to be doing is a retrospective look at every comic book movie since Blade (and then onto X-men, and then Spider-man and so forth). The reason I’m starting with Blade and not an earlier comic book movie (like Superman: The Movie or Batman & Robin), is because I consider it the starting point for the current trend of Hollywood superhero/comic book movies. There’s more than 4 each year now, and they’re usually the top grossing film of their respective year of release (and some of them are actually pretty good). They’ll be reviews/semi-commentaries/as many bad snarky terrible jokes I can think of.
Also, some comic book movies (like Blade) I have not seen in a really long time, so it should be interesting.
There’ll also be posts on other stuff. I’m going to aim for 1 a week. Maybe a few more if I come up with a good idea.
So if I look back in a year from now and I have 52 posts about rubbish that no one has read, I’ll know I’ve done good.
