It’s probably going to be pretty quiet on this blog for a while. I’m focusing my efforts on getting in shape, so my blogging is currently happening on my fitness blog. Head on over and check it out at ChunkeeMonkee.
The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 5,500 times in 2011. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 5 trips to carry that many people.
It will come as no surprise to most of you that my life, such as it is, hasn’t been on a very good trajectory for quite some time. I’ve made numerous plans to remedy this, many of which you can find on this very blog. The thing about plans is that they’re easy to make but they’re hard to implement. There are a lot of factors in my life, both internal and external, that make it difficult to implement change. That’s not an excuse, at the end of the day I’m responsible for everything I’ve said or done, or not done as the case may be. Continue reading ‘So this is me at the end of 2011’
As many of you already know, I released my edit of Star Wars: Episode I on my birthday this year. I held a couple of screenings and it was pretty successful so far as I could tell. Plans for Episodes II and III were placed on hold until the release of the blu rays. Anyway, today I received an email from someone who downloaded my edit. You know, it’s great when your friends like something you’ve done, but there’s something very validating when someone you don’t know, who has no reason to spare your feelings on the matter, comes forward and tells you you’ve done good. So I’m pretty happy right now. Let me share with you!
first let me say THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! I just watched The Gathering Storm with 3 close star wars geeks and we adored it.
Adoration is too weak a work. We were absolutely gaga. ANd all the OT throw backs: power converters, etc. Man, you are someone really special.
We geeked out to every single moment that you touched. Wow, I am so thrilled to now be able to show Ep. I to someone and have them say “that was pretty good!” becuase they will never know what the original was like, nor should they.
Pags, you have a true talent and I am so grateful that someone can do this: make it watchable. AN A LIKEABLE JAR-JAR!?? Brilliant!
Second, let me say how god-damned (or gosh-darned if you’re religious) excited I am for you ep II and II, because, as you know, they suck so bad it hurts. I don’t know how you could improve them but I’m so so so jazzed to find out.
I’m looking forward to anything you post with great interest!
Thanks Dave, I’m glad you liked it 🙂
Recently I took in the premier of Green Lantern. To put it kindly, it was not all one could have hoped for from a Green Lantern movie. This article will not be about the Green Lantern. This article is about Superman, because green is not a power, it’s a colour. Continue reading ‘The Man of Steel’
