The ol' Spontaneous Hiatus

Hello, if there are any readers left out there. I haven't written anything in a while. I had a video project I was working on for like a year, which self-destructed recently (hard drive, bed-shit). I've been working on a personal project that I've been keeping a bit closer to my chest than usual, but if the right time ever comes, I'll post something about it on here.

I'm still an occasional photographer, but I haven't been taken with my most recent work in that area.

I'm working very hard on a critical piece on Dark Souls 2, for the ol' Berfrois, who have published some of my work before. That should be emerging pretty soon. I'll put an update up here.

The closest thing I have to a BotD-exclusive piece is a long review I've written of Lone Survivor (2013), which I found kind of off-putting. I'll post that pretty soon, I think.

I might start thinking in blogging-terms again, if possible... I've gotten a couple actual real comments recently, and if something else goes up in Berfrois, it will be very embarrassing to have an empty blog at the end of the link in my profile.

Having furnished a probably-irrelevant update, I shall sign off. Cheerio the Internet!

Well, damn glad to see you're at it again. I'll be looking forward to reading more of your work.

I'm going to try to start blogging again as I have decided to change positions. The district offered me the chance to start a new, open-curriculum , gifted english class for 9th and 10th graders at the HS. I've been at Creative Expressions with 7th and 8th graders for 20 years or so. It's the child I gave birth to. I'm hoping it can survive on its own.

So the new curriculum...I'm going to try to blog my trials and tribulations with that. Aside from my summer classes, I've not taught "English qua English" in 20 years. So we'll see how I do.

(I read the Twitter reviews...I need time to watch movies! Any suggestions for 9th and 10th grade gifted kids that will challenge, link to universal themes/big ideas?)
