A lot of things seem to keep me from blogging. For one thing, I have a list of jobs and projects that are all late, all time-critical, and all require hours, and often days, to complete. For another thing, I have this amazing, smart, gorgeous creature living with me and I know I’m a workaholic. One of the big things that broke my relationship with K was the way I withdrew into work as a survival mechanism. I’m not going to allow that to happen this time, so I force myself to stop most nights. Call it a day, and curl up with her on the couch.

Has that made it even harder to get some work things done in a reasonable amount of time? Yes. Is it worth it? Undeniably.

The fact is, I just blog less when I’m happy. And with only tiny exceptions, since about, oh, August 15th of last year, I’ve been happier than I can remember in a long time. Look at that. It’s only taken me 46 years to start getting my priorities in order.

So, yeah, keeping up with the blog usually falls by the wayside. I should just start micro-blogging. Posting a line or two every day to see if my brain is still functioning. Bob knows, I think of things in the car all the time. I just fear that they’ll expand, like goldfish, to fill the time available to them. Maybe I’ll give it a shot, and we’ll see.

In the meantime, I thought I’d post one of those neat catch-up blogs that list all the things I could have written about, but didn’t (in no particular order):

  • This girl. Crazy about her. Never experienced anything like it. Don’t be jealous; just sayin’.
  • I’m incredibly happy with Cowboys & Engines, and proud of my amazing cast and crew. Ya’all are gonna love it when it’s finished.
  • Which is going to be a while yet, so calm down. There are a LOT of FX, and I want them done right. Takes time.
  • Monuments Men. What a huge pile of shit. No, really, really awful.
  • Do people actually give a fuck about the goddamned Ninja Turtles movie? REALLY? What is wrong with you people?
  • Malaysia Airlines 370. It’s gone. Don’t get distracted by the search in the Indian Ocean. It’s not there. Someone fucking stole it and landed it in Afghanistan. We’ll be seeing that thing again some day, don’t you fret.
  • I swear religious people have gotten even stupider than they used to be. This bullshit about Cosmos… Do you REALLY expect a real scientist to give your little fairytale about the Big Invisible Man in the Sky EQUAL FUCKING TIME?!? Even Rupert Murdoch isn’t an evil prick to THAT extent. Shut the hell and fuck up.
  • House of Cards is goddamned awesome.
  • So was Newsroom season 2.
  • I’m really starting to think the adult industry won’t survive long enough to be run out of California by AHF.
  • As I’m editing the final episodes of The Money $hot for the first time, I’m remembering what a GREAT show it was.
  • Have mentioned the Girl? Jesus wept…
  • Grand Budapest Hotel was beautiful and tangy and ever-so-slightly evil. Classic Wes Anderson.
  • The DC Universe is now completely FUBAR.
  • Godzilla looks freakin’ AWESOME.
  • Jupiter Ascending looks embarrassing.
  • The new Spider-Man… BLAH BLAH BLAH Transformers BLAH BLAH BLAH Fast & Fury-something… oh, who cares?
  • I want Fox & Sony to lose their rights to the Marvel Characters they own so badly it makes my teeth hurt.
  • That being said, Disney has wrecked Pixar beyond repair.
  • JJ Abrams will never be okay with me.
  • JJ Abrams is a fucking artist compared to Zack Snyder.
  • Richard Hatch might be just about the nicest guy I’ve ever met.
  • Have I mentioned that she plays Magic? Plays it WELL? And she’s EXCITED about Winter Soldier?
  • Oh, also, she’s as twisted as I am. No, really, and an even bigger sexual predator. You should see the things we send each other…
  • An adult film I’m very proud of is finally being released here in the US. I’m kind of excited by this.

I could do this forever, but you aren’t being punished. Apart from that, let me close by saying there’s big stuff coming this year. On a lot of fronts. Keep watching this space, and I’ll try to find time to tell you about it.

Whatcha think?
