Deadline Looming! Big Changes Ahead!

Hi everybody,

I have been meaning to write this for some time. 

First, I want to sincerely thank all the readers who have stuck with me this year, when I have had much less time to devote to the blog. I appreciate it so much. 

Right now, my semester is starting at my college, where I am Department Chair for Humanities and Social Sciences -- and hey, I'm teaching a horror film class this fall, as well as Intro to Communication and Public Speaking! 

But also, I have a book deadline approaching September 1st. 

I'm afraid that with all these responsibilities, the pickings here have been slimmer than I would prefer. Right now everything is at a fever pitch, and the blog has suffered for it.

So, I just want everybody to know what has been going on.

However, I can see the light at the end of the tunnel, and am looking forward to September.  I am planning a major revamp, redesign, and rethink of the blog as I head into its fifteenth year. So basically, I'm recommitting to this form, and this conversation about popular culture. 

I think it is time to put to bed some categories of blog that I have been doing for eight or nine years (since my last rethink), and thus offer a new array of choices, both in video and written form. So I'm still going to write about films, TV shows, and toys, just change things up a bit in terms of how it is presented.

So, long story short: If you can hang with me and the blog in its current form for about one more month, it is my plan that things will pick up again, and we move to 3.0.  There will still be Kolchak and Saturday morning posts up, as well as other intermittent ones, in the meantime.

But look for some positive changes, and more content, when my deadline is passed and the semester is in progress.

Thank you again, for sticking around, and for your friendship. Now back to the show...



  1. Hello John,

    This "reboot" of your blog sounds wonderful! It has been a long journey of your engaging thoughts posted here and I will continue to be a participant.


  2. Hey John,

    Looking forward to any changes and planning to stick with you for the long haul! I can relate...time has been scarce these days for me as well. I've truly enjoyed your writing and will enjoy it in the future, too!


  3. Hey, John--

    I hope whatever changes you make, your terrific archive of posts remains available! I look forward to your refresh. What's the book?
