Summertime on the Couch

Hi all! Well, I’ve taken a semi-break recently, but I have now been given the gift of time. Yes folks, the kids are on summer break and even though this blogger has a full-time job, the lack of school commitments frees up lots of my time.

I hope to catch up on some of the summer films that are quickly building up on my “must see” list. With all my personal commitments, films on my list like: Thor, Bridesmaids and Everything Must Go, appear to have passed me by. I may need to sneak in some double, or even triple feature days in order to catch up. I must say that the crop of summer films does appear to be more interesting than in recent years.

Spending time sprucing up my blog is also high on my list. Of course the first order of business is more posts. I have tons of new music to review and a stack of books waiting to be read and hopefully loved.

I will be reviving Tuesday’s Song of the Week. If you have any songs you’d like to turn me on to, I’d love to hear your suggestions.

I’m also starting a new feature called Movie/Book-Combo. This will be a review of the movie AND book. First up will be my review of Never Let Me Go.

You can also expect some physical changes to the blog. Some time ago I set up pages, but I never had time to work on them. Over the summer months I will begin to catalog my reviews for easier access for you. I will also update my severely sparse “About Me” page. When I visit other blogs, I notice their pages are rich and full of information that helps me get a sense of who they are. I realize my page is lacking and I’ll be rectifying that soon.

Lastly, I’m taking part in the SITS summer group of 31 Days To Build A Blog. I did this once before and I learned a lot and met many new blog friends. Some of my posts will be related to this project.

I hope everyone’s summer is getting off to a great start. I’ll be on my couch, but also walking in the sunshine, eating ice cream and drinking cold beer. I hope you’ll stop by now and then and let me know what you’re up to!

Thanks for the Update. I like that you have some new features coming up. I'm doing a similar re-struction myself. I especially look forward to the movie and film combo.

Finally you don't need to rush from the couch to see X-men First Class I found very disappointing unfortunately. Save your money for Super 8 instead.

I'll be looking forward to your new stuff too!
If I had my way I'd run out right now and see Super 8, but I have some family things to tend to.
