Movie Reviews...

So once upon a time I ran this movie review blog called Quick & Dirty Movie Reviews.  I had fun putting it together, and apparently it has over 13 thousand all-time hits, if I believe the stats.  Of course, most of those hits are from porn-related search results, with the most popular being "Anita Briem's nipples" (which is in response to search results for this post).  There wasn't actually anything "dirty" about the site, but I wrote it in a different voice than what I usually do.

The other fun part was that there was nothing serious about it whatsoever.  Most of the time I wrote what I truly thought about a film, distilled from wordiness and right to the point - plus some sort of joke that seemed witty to me at the time of writing it.  Other times I exaggerated what I thought about certain films, which was fun too.

The point of this post: I've been feeling restless creatively.  A lot of it has to do with that short story anthology I'm trying to complete (I'm getting frustrated - love the story concepts, but not my execution), but the other bits of it is that I've realized (yet again) that I have more fun writing "quasi non-fiction".  I call it quasi non-fiction because while I am expressing my personal opinions, I am doing so through a specific character, and not really as myself.

Boy am I long-winded.  So I think I'm going to pick this up again, but this time I'm going to use Tumblr.  I don't know if there are any mechanisms in existence to transfer a Wordpress Blog to Tumblr, but if not then I will just start from scratch.  Because there is no way I'm re-typing all of those reviews.
