Well, autumn has begun (officially, right, or am I early?) and this is quite frankly the beginning of the best time of the year, award's season. It's not merely the fact that the best films of the year are about to be released or the frantic explosion of Oscar anticipation is about to overcome all of us, but autumn/winter is just my favorite time of year, period. Give me a sweater and an overpriced coffee and a stroll through the city with my wife and kids in tow and the stars above my head and I'm set.
September is going to be a really busy month for me, but sadly it may be really quite (at least in parts) here on the blog. I am finally taking my clan to Disney World, and we embark here in just nine days, so come next Thursday, it's going to be SILENT on this blog for almost two weeks. Vacationing is always so bittersweet for me. I literally cut off the outside world (although, I have Twitter now, so be on the lookout for updates on my meet and greets with the princesses) and so I can't really talk to you guys about anything.
BUT, I do have some cool stuff planned for the blog this month, especially the end of the month. Before I leave (hopefully), I have two special Top Tens planned, a Fisti Awards ceremony (1997, baby), another one nearly wrapped up (but that may have to wait until I return), an early Blind Spot review (coming later this week) and I do plan on ripping Transcendence a new one sometime this week.
Wish me luck.
When I get back, two very special things are happening. First, we have the Recast-athon happening! If you haven't heard of it, take a gander here. PLEASE play along. This is a very important subject, one that I feel needs to be discussed. Also, Twice a Best Actress is happening! We have a really awesome panel with three returning bloggers (myself included) and three newbies! It looks to be a really promising discussion to carry us through the beginning of Oscar season. I'm so thankful to my fellow bloggers for being so willing to play along.
And guess what...they BOTH happen on September, 26th!!!
So, there is the rundown for the month of September. I'm so happy to spend it with my blogging community, and I hope you all can follow along and participate, especially in the Recast-athon!
