Marketers Gone Wild

When I popped my can of Pringles and read “Design your own can…” I just HAD to!

Are you there, readers? It’s me, Blogret.

First and foremost, I obviously have no idea what I’m doing with this blog. I haven’t updated in how long?! I don’t even remember. EPIC FAIL!

Well, a few things have happened since I did update this last, which was in July when I wrote a nice review about a crappy movie. Oh and I have one draft saved on this thing that says, “Season 4 premier of Weeds was on last night.” I suppose that was a review of some sort, but c’mon, Sharon, you didn’t even italicize the show’s title. And what kind of sentence is that? You work in publishing for craps’ sake – get back on the ball!!! 

I just need to get it out of my system – Showtime is the best cable network right now for series. They’re on the ball with the dramadies that they are producing. Right now, Weeds, Dexter and Californication are my ‘holy trinity’ of current programming. Dexter and Californication both premiered on September 28th and are both two very strong, much anticipated episodes in. Great stuff! Dexter still has me on the edge of my seat and Californication  is still high comedy.

South Park premiered this past Wednesday and let me tell you, watching the “o face” of George Lucas is like staring Lucifer right in the face. Those poor animators. But it was hilarious and I love their biting satire, no matter what the subject matter is.

So, anyone read the news lately?

Housekeeping Decisions

Happy Friday! TG, right? Thanks for those of you who commented on my first blog post, I wrote another one for you to grace your insights with. Thank you in advance and you’re welcome. 🙂

The past few years, I have noticed a trend of me lacking follow-through when it comes to my own ventures, which bothers me on a variety of levels. This is my launch-pad for reawakening my creativity. In the interest of maintaining this blog and garnering readership of it. I have come up with a very basic format:

  1. 2-3 times a week I will create a 200-500 word blog entry.
  2. On the last day of the month, I will give a basic review of any films that I’ve seen in the preceding 30 days. I would also like to include the TV shows that I follow. Since I’m planning such a brief overview, I think this is feasible. Plus, I don’t follow too many shows.
  3. Also, on the last day of the month I will post an essay that will be developed throughout the month concerning an issue in mass media. I particularly enjoy watching films and shows (old and new) and picking out their relevance to the real world and current events.

So, there you have it. I think that those are realistic goals considering that I always am commenting on and picking apart mass media, popular culture and politics, now, I’m going to put it to good use.
