Getting back into the swing . . .

I've been trying to get everything back to what passes for normal around here after the holidays, my grandfather's passing, the funeral, getting back to Oregon, Brenda's further treatments for her rheumatoid arthritis, bringing back the Mail Order Zombie podcast, etc., etc., etc. I haven't posted too much here this month outside of my annual What I Read and What I Watched lists.

This past Thursday, we relaunched our Mail Order Zombie podcast. Over the past few months, I've been going over several different ways to bring the show back - going back to weekly, a once-a-month-dedicated episode for post-apocalyptic movies/media content, more segments, more polish, more work, more time away from "real life," etc., etc., etc. Eventually, Bren and I decided that in order to better facilitate our other away-from-the-microphone goals and projects, Mail Order Zombie is going to be a biweekly show. (Of course, our monthly Dead Letter Awards show will be a more produced show, and that will be in March.)

The monthly 1951 Down Place podcast has been a lot of fun, and I don't see its monthly shcedule changing any time soon. I'm really enjoying talking about Hammer Films with my friends Casey and Scott, and that's not going to change any time sooon.

On the writing-front, I'm regrouping and getting my head screwed back on straight after the Arizona trip. I set a game plan for myself for the Mail Order Zombie hiatus, and while I didn't follow that game plan (for a number of different reasons), I'm okay with where I'm at now with my various works-in-progress.

In fact, if you'll excuse me for a moment, I need to work on one of those projects right now.
