I know I haven’t posted in quite awhile, but I’m regaining the interest I once had for blogging. Believe it or not, I’ve been going through a lot since I posted last. Like a lot of mental obstacles. Now on to more pertinent matters. This weekend marked the launch of two very important things if you are a media gobbler: The release of Pokemon X and Y for Nintendo 3DS, and the season premiere of The Walking Dead.
Pokemon X and Y are a bit of nostalgia from my younger days. This game has brought back everything that I loved about Pokemon, and added a lot of new relevant things. I’m not the leading expert on Pokemon, considering the last one I really played was Pokemon Blue on the GameBoy Color back in 1998, but I feel right at home with this new game, especially since I get to pick some of the original starters. Now I understand most of you probably aren’t Pokemon people, but I’ve got one more thing to say about it. I went to the midnight release, and there were more college students who had bought Pokemon over children whose parents had bought them Pokemon.
Tonight was the premiere of The Walking Dead, the leading show on AMC network about the zombie apocalypse. I have been waiting for this premiere since the end of last season. You may not be a big fan of the whole “zombie apocalypse” thing but I highly recommend watching it. It is not only a good story, but also beautiful film work. I notice that kind of stuff because I am a film student. That’s another argument for another day.
In other words, while I did disappear for awhile, I am now back from the dead. I’m not going to promise that I’m going to post regularly, but I’m going to post more often, just whenever the muse hits me and I feel like I want to write. I need to get my writing up to par of that of the best screenwriters if I want to make a name for myself. Back on subject, I’m back, and better than ever.
