two three (three and a half?) months really seem like a long time?
The last time this simple little blog had a new post was two months ago, but it seems so much longer than that. This may have something to do with the fact that my last post, a shitty attempt at live-blogging what turned out to be an awful Oscars show, was posted in late February. As time went by, and as I tried and tried to think of things to write, I couldn’t come up with anything, and simple procrastination turned into a hiatus, and I was starting to feel like the site was finally done for.
But as I left The Media Experiment for dead, I started discovering some great new pieces of pop culture geekery. Since February, I’ve experienced the joys of Breaking Bad and Community. I’ve found some great new bands to listen to, especially this cool little group from Canada called Meligrove Band. I’ve played awesome games like Borderlands, I’ve read superb books like Olympos, and I’ve even found the time to do other meaningless things, like graduate from high school and officially decide on going to the University of Missouri, starting this fall.
I guess the point I’m trying to make here is that while silly little blogs will stop moving, the rest of the world doesn’t. And as the world doesn’t stop, neither does entertainment. So really, there is no reason to actually kill this blog, even if a break from covering the whole wide world of time-wasting was worth it.
So, with all of that behind us, it’s time for the folks here at TME to get back to what we do best, and that’s providing amateur analysis and praise/criticism/irrational hatred to the world of media entertainment.
I speak for Jimmy, Emily, Trevor, and Jackie when I say: we’re back (at least for the summer), and it feels very good.
I now leave you with iPug
