So, earlier this year (ie like a month ago) I was rather frusterated with myself. I felt I wasn't happy and every thing was a chore and I wasn't even enjoying the this I used to enjoy. Always a bummer. And eventually i just got tired of hearing myself bitch all the freakin time. And when you are tired of hearing you bitch, you know others must be exhausted by it as well.
I got to thinking "what is something I would enjoy doing that is not required for me to do for school or work?" Basically, I was (and still kinda am) looking for a hobby. (which i think is kind of a weird thing, you don't really go hobby hunting, do you? I've always felt hobbies kind of sneak up on you.) And then it hit me and hit me hard. I love television. and I love talking with my brother about television. and we are really big nerds about it too. So, I proposed that we start a blog about the good shows on t.v. not the reality shows or the game shows, but quality scripted shows that we love. (Bones, Friday Night Lights, Leverage, Modern Family. ...) Then we realized that most of the shows that we love are actually no longer on the air.( Buffy, Kitchen Confidential, the O.C. (ok they can't all be winners)) but who cares! I'm actually really excited for it, but I can't tell he thinks it's still a joke. Kinda like how we're compiling the dream cast for the Y: The Last Man movie. (which we totally agree that it would make a better mini series) I'm contemplating starting the blog anyway after finals are over and letting him come on board if he wants to afterward.
Only thing is I sure there are million different blogs all revolving around the same idea, cause if there's one thing I've learned from art school, it's that there are a finite amount of ideas, just an infinite way of producing it. Look at the connection between a facebook status and twitter. I just need to have a niche or a new angle towards the idea.
ho hum...Also, this week I came up a great idea for a restaurant name: Square one. As in "we're back at square one." I think it's funny, but then I like puns, so what does that tell you?
