Stay tuned

I know I promised TV and movie reviews.  And that none have yet appeared.  Please be patient.  This is only day 2 of this blog.  In time, they will come.  I need to spend time watching said movies and TV shows first before I can blog about them.  And then I have to decide which of those movies and TV shows I actually feel like writing about.

In the mean time, here are some examples of the types of posts that may later appear on this blog…

Well these particular posts won’t appear on this blog.  Because they already appear on my other blog.  Having them appear on multiple blogs would just be overkill.  I suppose I could always delete them from there and recreate them here, since this blog would be a more fitting place for them.  I imagine they would feel more at home here.  But they probably don’t want to be destroyed either.  If I redo them here, they would no longer be their original selves, they would be like clones.  It just wouldn’t be the same.  I suppose they shall just have to remain where they are now, even though they might not completely fit in.  They will just have to learn to make do.

Think of this post as a sort of commercial break between shows.  Or rather, as a preview before the movie.  Yes, that makes more sense.  Sometimes the previews are good and sometimes they aren’t.  You have no way of knowing really.  You just have to take that chance and sit through them in order to pass the time for what you actually came for.  Or you could always kill that time getting popcorn or just show up late with the intention of skipping them.  But then you run the risk of a lousy seat.  And I’m pretty sure you’ll want to have a good seat for when you’re reading my blog.

Professional TV Watcher

This is my second blog.  My first blog is random and unnewsworthy.  Literally.  That’s what I called it.  But I wanted to dedicate one specifically to writing about TV shows and movies.  That way I can finally say that yes, I do indeed have a theme and a topic that I write about.  It’s not so random anymore.  Though it may still be unnewsworthy.  But I’ll let the readers make that decision.

I’ve always hated it when people ask what my interests and hobbies are, or what I like to do in my spare time.  I could never come up with an answer.  I always just wanted to say that I like watching movies.  And I like watching TV.  But for some reason that sounded lame.  Why though?  If that’s what I like to do, why should I be ashamed of it?  People have book clubs, I’ve always thought there should be TV watching clubs as well.  Are there?  If they do exist then I would certainly like to know.

I remember several years ago, watching the show Greed on the game show network.  Sadly, I no longer get this channel.  I feel very deprived by the fact that this is lacking in my life.  Greed was similar to Who Wants to Be a Millionaire, except that there was a team of people answering the questions instead of just one person.  This made things more interesting.  Before the game begins, host Chuck Woolery would ask the contestants a bit about themselves.  I remember one man said he was a journalist.  And that he watched 10 hours of TV a day.  And that he considered those 10 hours of TV to be part of his work, since that’s what he wrote about.  I had found my role model.  Ever since then, that has been my dream job.  To spend the day watching TV.  I know that 10 hours is a lot, but I’m sure I could handle it.  It’s a tough job, but someone’s got to do it, right?

I’m not sure how one gets into the business of watching TV professionally.  Perhaps I should list it on my resume as one of my skills?  Will that give me some sort of an edge perhaps?  And then one day the right person will see it and take notice and request my services.  Because I’m that good.  I think I’m capable of watching TV better than the average person.  I’ve always been an excellent multitasker and I believe this quality will be an advantage to me while watching TV.  As a matter of fact, I’m watching TV while writing this post.  Impressive, no?
