Hey, there. How’s it going?
I’ve been silent for quite a while on this site that used to be mine. Right now, it seems like it belongs more to the people who comment on the site, because I’ve been MIA so long that I’ve become more like the host emeritus. Hopefully that won’t last forever.
Life is busy. Good, but busy. I’m at that point where my wife and I are in the cycle of get up, go to work, come home, play with the baby, do chores, go to bed, and repeat. Further complicating matters is the fact that we decided one day last month that because interest rates are on their way back up, now might be the time to buy a new house. So we did.
We’re now mired in that process of loan and real estate paperwork and the annoying thing of having to make sure our current house is presentable at any given moment so we can sell the damn thing. Then we’ll get to pack and move — all while trying to figure out how all that works while having a 6-month-old. We’ll get it done. But I fear September is going to make me want to hit the bourbon. I prefer Maker’s Mark, but usually buy Jim Beam because I’m cheap.
So things are happening. Obviously, I haven’t blogged in months and I’m way late on my Star Trek Into Darkness review. That kind of got pushed aside. You shouldn’t read into my lateness as a reflection upon my opinion of the movie. I’ll write it after the Blu-ray comes out and I have a chance to watch it again as a refresher. I’m not promising the review will be done right after the DVD/BD release, but I’ll try not to sit on it forever. Although September may be bad given the whole move thing.
Rest assured, I read the comments on Jammer’s Reviews every day — usually on my smartphone while walking between meetings at work, on my lunch hour, or before bed. One of the best things I ever did for the site was to make a mobile-friendly version that included the comments. Hey, I’m not just the creator of the Jammer’s Reviews website — I’m also a user!
So keep the comments coming. No, I haven’t read the STID comments yet. That’s going to be one hell of a catch-up project, as it looks like that thread is closing in on 500 now. Hopefully people haven’t been total a-holes in there while making their rhetorical points. But if they have, my apologies for not being in their to moderate.
I’ll be back.
