State of the Onion address

I’m sure you guys are familiar enough with my ambitions to know there’s what I plan to do, what I’d like to do and what I’m going to do and sometimes none of these are the same thing.


I had no idea that starting a blog was going to be this difficult. I mean, I knew it was going to be a challenge to work full time, do my charity work and take care of generic life stuff like eating. There are times when I just really don’t feel like doing a specific episode or doing a certain post, but I feel like I owe it my readers (all three of you) to try my best.

I know I promised certain posts in the past and there were some I really wanted to do that never got beyond the planning stage. All I can do is beg forgiveness, for not writing that post I told you I was gonna do, and then, didn’t do.

Posts like:

A recap and review of Sens8

An analysis of my favorite fight scenes from Daredevil

A character analysis on Crowley and his Demonic Performance

A rundown of the hottest Men of Color in SFF, which I did start but had to scrap halfway through because I totally lost my point.

Okay, so we have a hiatus coming up for the holidays and those posts along with several others are the ones I had planned to do and here is what I really, really wanted to do,  and planned months ago:

The Blob (1958) Vs The Blob (1988) review

Fright Night (1987)  Vs Fright Night (2011) review

Various Horror  and Martial Arts movies and TV shows, but you get my meaning. Too much ambition.

Well’ here’s what I’m going to do. I’m going to try to knock at least a few of these out of my blogging queue during the hiatus. I know! I know! I’ve made these promises before (and probably will again next month) but seriously, the hiatus for most of the Fall shows lasts about two months (we’re not even going to discuss the shows coming in January) so that gives me plenty of time to renege on my current promise to get you that Crowley character analysis because I was busy obsessing about something else, (like Hannibal.)


Okay, this I can actually promise: In the next two days, there will be a review of Supernatural and American Horror Story. Next week, there will be a review of The walking Dead and Into the Badlands.


Two promises I hope I can keep.

    I think you’re doing great! You’re prolific, and you have high standards for yourself so you don’t just throw up any old blog post to fill space. You want your posts to be quality, and they are. So kudos!
    There’s something to be said for follow-through, but life happens. Part of the fun of blogging is that it’s not a job and nobody’s standing over you with a stick, unless you make that person yourself. You shouldn’t even make your readers into those people, because then it becomes this dreadful obligation.
    Have fun, set goals and follow through on some of them, but don’t beat yourself up if you can’t meet all of them.

    1. Great advice.
      I’ve got the fun part down. I never lack for ideas, so that’s not a problem, but i do have to work on that horribly guilty feeling I get when I tell everyone I’m going to do a post on something and I don’t get it done.
      Iknow, Iknow.
      Lkeke,just relax, ,breathe, its going to be okay.
