Welcome, How Do I Do

Somehow I am finding this difficult to write.  It’s been years since I’ve been taunting myself with the idea of writing a blog.  Two years, to be exact, is the amount of time my parents have been taunting me with the idea of writing a blog.  And yet, here I am, twenty-four, living in New York City, trying to pursue a career in screenwriting, and writing a blog.

I’m a little formal, so let me just say “Welcome!”  I’ll try to keep to a posting schedule of Tuesdays and Fridays, but nothing is guaranteed.  I’ve messed with the idea of keeping it one subject based.  Food.  Movies.  But everything started lumping together.  Then I did a video essay.  It is awesome, but making one is a lot of work.  I could dive into the details on how I downloaded a virus on my laptop while working on it, but I won’t go there.  There are only a few months where I can really dig deep into my favorite topic: the Oscars.  Not enough to sustain a blog and compete with the likes of Scott Feinberg or the entire team of IndieWire.  So here I am, contemplating, and afraid of falling behind.  (Yes, I do get a bit pessimistic from time to time.)  So out of a long wait of when to launch, and what to launch it with, and what to talk about, this is it.  It is a combination of all the above.  My lack of interest in summer blockbusters is somewhat unique, as I would rather spend the hot summer months seeing an indie over the latest MCU feature, so that’s my spin.  But I have an interest in some blockbusters (Ghostbusters reboot anyone?), so it’s up to you to decide if it’s offbeat enough.

This is just me.  Being me.  Writing what I want to write about.

So in anticipation of something real to come out on Friday, here is the video essay I made as part of my post production class at Long Island University – Brooklyn four months ago.  It gives you the sense of what I like and don’t like.  Enjoy!
