There’s no denying it: July has fairly lean month in terms on content. There’s been a lot going on behind-the-scenes and several articles had to be put on the back burner. The biggest issue has been my impending move, which has naturally resulted in lots of packing and apartment hunting. Longtime readers know I’ve had scheduling issues in the past and usually this is the part when I assure you that things will be back to normal within a month or so. But that isn’t the case this time. Although the Freaky Tiki Surf-ari will proceed as planned (as will Music to Haunt By) and hopefully my participation in Halloween countdown won’t be impacted too badly, I’m not sure how September or any of the months to follow will play out.
Why the change? Well, it all comes down to my free time. For the majority of GdL16’s existence, I was either working weekends or working at home and able to set my own schedule. But once I move, there’s going to be lots of job hunting that will hopefully end in either a part or full time job during the week. But that’s not the only factor when it comes to free time. I’ve been living in near isolation out in the middle of nowhere for the site’s entire existence and you had better believe I’m going to be spending more time with other people the split second I relocate. Don’t get me wrong, I’ll still be working as hard as I can on the site. It’s just that I might not always do five posts per month like I usually do. But when I can’t, at least you’ll have cool guest posts from Zombos’ Closet and Propnomicon to check out (in addition to material by the rest of the Local).
Hell, I might even be able to multitask! I was flipping through DigBoston (which is directly responsible for this article) recently and it made me realize just how much great horror stuff can be found in Massachusetts. In addition to classics being screened at the Harvard Film Archive, Brattle and Coolidge Corner theatres, the Sinclair books acts like Mondo Zombie Boogaloo, Man Or Astro-Man? and Goblin quite regularly! So stay tuned, because things are bound to get real interesting in the future.
