Wow. Where did the summer go? I pretty much missed the entire month of July as far as blogging goes. I’ve been really busy with quite a few things, such as my work on my book. I have been working on that at the Historical Society mainly on Saturdays since they are open on Saturdays during the summer. I have also been working on some ideas for YouTube videos because I haven’t posted any new videos on there in a little over a month. Don’t forget I am still new to the world of Internet video making, but I am starting to find my footing.
Of course, it’s not like I have been idle these last few weeks. For one thing, I finally tried my hand at BlogTV and it was almost a near disaster. Thankfully, towards the end I started to get the hang of it and I did end up with at least one new subscriber for my YouTube channel. I haven’t really been able to do another show, partly due to technical difficulties and the fact that both timing and the weather have not been on my side. That and the fact that I had to go out and buy another tripod. So hopefully, soon, I will be able to go back and do another show, probably in the next week or two.
On the first week that I was at the Historical Society during their summer hours, I decided to bring my camcorder along because I had to film a lecture that I was planning to put on my Chester and Grace site, but once I got it home and uploaded it to the computer, it didn’t come out. An hour of footage and all I got was a white screen. I tried to break it down with the Movie Maker but it was no good. In the end, I had to get rid of the whole thing.
Also in July on opening night as a matter of fact, I went to see “The Dark Knight” in Little Falls. It was really awesome and lived up to the hype as being the biggest film of the summer mainly because of Heath Ledger as the Joker. It has also done excellent box office. It broke the record set by “Spider-Man 3” the year before and now people are saying that it has a shot at dethroning “Titanic” as the biggest film of all time. That is quite an accomplishment for a “Batman” movie.
I got an extra day off from work last night. I had arranged to take a personal day off from work so I could go and see a play. However, I ended up not going because of the fact that the play I wanted to go see was actually in Utica. So I just took advantage of the day off, even though I have to go back tonight, and you know how I feel about.
So, that is pretty much it from my end. I know I have been away for a while, but I hope to have some more things up soon.
I arrived at the theater in Little Falls at 6:15 that night for the 7:00 showing and as it was with “Transformers”, I was able to get there ahead of the crowd. However, unlike “Transformers,” this was the second night that the movie was in theaters so I wasn’t the first one to plunk down money to see it. It did draw a huge crowd, most notably nostalgia-seekers who grew up on the original three movies like I did.
And my verdict on the latest movie, which is set in the 50’s, is that the movie was excellent. It definitely lives up to the hype that it is one of the summer’s biggest movies and it definitely is a worthy addition to the whole saga, especially for the die-hard fans who grew up on Indy such as myself. I am sort of bummed that it is getting some bad reviews especially when it debuted at Cannes last week. I thought that while it wasn’t as good as “Raiders of the Lost Ark,” it was definitely on par with “Last Crusade” and worlds better than “Temple of Doom.”
Today, I got to go to some more yard sales and I got some more clothes. There wasn’t really too much selection. I went to one in Herkimer, two in Mohawk, and one in Ilion. Actually, Herkimer is going to be having a village-wide yard sale in June. I also tried to put in for vacation time from work for the third week in June. I hope that I put the request in before they made the schedule up. And I do believe they approved my request for a personal day on August 4 so I can go see that play in Ilion that day.
This week on my to-do list includes deciding to put up a live video either today or tomorrow. I think I’ll do a movie review.
Oh, yeah, by the way. Indy didn’t literally save my life. I just decided to put that as an interesting title.
Well, another weekend off from work is almost over. It was like this weekend went by really fast. As I write this, it is about an hour and a half away from Sunday morning and I have been online pretty much all day.
As of Friday, Blackcatloner has officially added yet another job to his resume in addition to Wally World associate, Internet blogger, and YouTube moviemaker: I am also a lawn mower person. That afternoon, I mowed the lawn for the Historical Society and made some extra bucks. Shortly after that, I went to Wally World and got two “Indiana Jones” movies. The other day, the first three movies came out individually on DVD and that was something I was waiting for. I got “Raiders of the Lost Ark” and “Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.” Next Friday, I’m planning to go see the new movie because it comes out next weekend.
I found out that I can take a personal day on any day before inventory but not vacation time. I put in for the first Monday in August so I can go see another play at Ilion Little Theater. It’s not part of their regular program season, but it’s part of their After Dark Productions. I can also take vacation time during the second and third weeks in July, but it doesn’t seem likely that I’ll get it. I’ll have to wait until either late August or September to take it.
