Happy New Year 2015

Time again to bestir oneself and actually put in some effort towards maintaining this blog... so many favorites have gone into hiatus or quit due to Circumstances -- Life, REAL Life, tends to get into the way at the worst possible moments, and then it's easy to forget that one has access to any creative outlet, especially if there's little to no financial benefit involved.

So, this year, There Is A Plan, of sorts... look for the annual 'Guilty of Being WHITE' slate to come around in February. I'm also planning to look more at films that actually NEED some boosting, so I'll try to keep up with that - and not hitting the Usual Suspects who've been discovered by some site looking for clickbait.

I also write for 366 Weird Movies, so there might be some crossover with that site this year -- particularly regarding filmmaker Andrzej Zulawski, whose films I'll be doing a retrospective of. Another retrospective planned will be for Kevin Willmott, who's due for some wider exposure.

Also look for Tru-Life tales of working in lo/no budget filmmaking; "Lo(Budget)Life", which would've ideally been the next print issue of the original zine.
