No splashes, no waves

It's been a very long time since I've last posted, but for good reason.  The 17th Annual St. Louis International Film Festival wrapped up this past Sunday and I was incredibly busy with that: 15 straight days of 12 hours or more (prepping the fest, run supplies around, introducing films, wrangling volunteers, the list goes on) leaves little time for giving insight on the TV shows which influenced me when I was younger.  I doubt I post much of anything over the weekend.  I'd rather unwind and spend more time in the world than on the computer.  I know I'll be doing a few family things, playing the traditional Thanksgiving hockey game, and going the movies quite a bit.  I should be back blogging in full force come December as I already have a few screenings on the agenda (the new Punisher, The Reader, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button).  Until then, have a fun time eating a lot of food and stay warm out there.

Catch A Wave!

A radio wave that is.  This Friday, from 12 noon till 2pm, I'll be appearing on Thomas Crone's radio program, "Silver Tray."  We'll be discussing all things film fest.  Tune in and check it out (or wait for the podcast and check it out).

Also, don't expect too many blogs over the next 11 days, I'll be a little busy, but you are in my cyber heart.
Big T hard at work.

Now You're A Man

So, as I fill out a volunteer shift sheet, I ponder/reflect on the action/inaction of my life. The good, the bad, the ugly - the times when I have acted as a responsible member of society (particularly in an attempt to make sense of our plight as humans) and the other times when I have been, well, let's just say morally ambiguous. In first grade, I spent a lot of time "in the corner," which would usually result in me bawling my eyes out.

Sometimes I find myself thinking I should be doing more, but doing more of what?  Could I really be that languid and apathetic?  Has the life I have led made my ambitions somnolent?

Vote Propaganda

So, the election is over but I wanted to post this last week sometime (I've been absent, but more on that later). Still, the images are available for your viewing pleasure. Just click the pic for the gallery. Some are really neat, playful, engaging or smart. Others are retreaded hack jobs.
