November is finally wrapping up and much to my chagrin I don’t have much to show for it, at least here on Culture War Reporters. There was of course the interview I conducted with ex-porn star Christopher Zeischegg on the 7th, which I remain immensely proud of, but since then my regular offerings have been less than sparse.
The reason for that being the return of CBS’s 2 Broke Girls, a sitcom that I’ve been reviewing since 2013. Given that the timeslot has been moved to Thursday nights, that robs me of the hours I would normally devote to my Friday blog posts. Excuses aside, this all leaves me feeling not unlike Peter Jackson on the set of The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies–
-because, like Peter Jackson, I found myself with a lack of time in which to prepare. Unlike Peter Jackson, however, my blog posts were not to be penned by Guillermo del Toro, and I did not have to scramble to write them once the acclaimed filmmaker dropped out. I don’t have any great excuses, is what I’m saying.
All that being said next week I’m planning on giving us all a break in preparation to wrapping things up in December. Gordon may still deliver on that post he promised, but in general I have every intention of doing what I can to make sure I can deliver content that meets my own standards as 2015 comes to a close. In the planning stages are [hopefully] one more interview, a book review, and a post on violence and video games that may or may not be growing more outdated with every passing week.
Apologies on my part, and here’s to my becoming a better editor in 2016.
So this has been a weird week. On Monday we had Gordon essentially mourning the destruction of a priceless historical site, with Kat covering how grateful she was for her loving husband just two days later. Emotions have been running a little bit high around here, to say the least.
On my side of things I have just barely been keeping it together with my family’s return to North America, and unfortunately this is the week where I let things slide a little bit. I’m also expecting some new life-changing events by the end of next month. On that note, there should also be some very cool changes on this blog as of . . . October, maybe! All credit goes to Kat on that, but I need to do my side of things and work on it as well.
At this point I also have more blog post ideas than I know what to do with, so I have no excuses in this upcoming month. Thank you for reading. Below is a video game gif for your troubles, because that’s how life feels sometimes:
Man, I really do not enjoy doing this. As I said in my post explaining why Wednesday’s post was missing, I now have a job. This has been a difficult adjustment as far as the blog is concerned since my work hours don’t leave me a lot of time to put posts together.
That being said, sorry for nothing on Friday, as well as no explanation at that point.
I’m going to do everything I can to ensure that there will be a Surprise Witness this Wednesday, as well as a Fame Day and a Friday post both written by yours truly. Sorry again, everyone, and thank you for understanding. Here is a baseball gif to end things off on a good note.
Although we did write a post for today, even I, dear readers, thought the quality was too poor for us to publish it. Instead, Evan (who hasn’t been feeling well) and I took it out into the woods and shot it. I’d like to tell you that we gave it a decent burial, but that would be a lie. The coyotes are gonna be eating good tonight.
I know it’s been said before, but how is Sam still fat? Dude’s gotta be burning 5,000 calories a day…
The point is, readers, there will be no E&G Talk this Wednesday (though you should remember to check out Kat’s post). No words can ever describe how ashamed we are of ourselves, which is why the almighty has given us gifs.
We really are sorry.
It’s 8 in the morning. I’m trying to rack my brain for a topic that I can write about in a little under an hour, because I have a meeting I have to go to at 10. Then I realize, wait, we’ve already hit our five required posts for the week-
Since our E> was a day late this week I also wrote a post about the Indiana Jones movies to fill in a little, so that means we’re where we already should be on a Friday morning.
I’d like to apologize again as the founder of this blog for things being so shaky this week. Gordon had more or less a good excuse for posting late on Monday, but I didn’t really for not being online to write E> with him on Tuesday night.
Suffice to say, I’m sorry. Maybe I’ll put a post up later tonight, but the more likely [and probably wiser] option is that I’ll try to write ahead for next week and do some of the posts that take a little more research. Thanks, as usual, for tuning in. Maybe skim the archives for anything you find interesting?
EDIT: Actually, now that I’ve started reviewing 2 Broke Girls every week we put up six posts, but I still feel bad.
Due to unforeseen circumstances [visiting Hamilton to visit a friend to celebrate our birthdays] there will be no post today. Sorry if you’re one of the few people who check this blog often for some quality reading material.
Today’s “Evan and Gordon Talk” will be posted later tonight. We discussed our topic and wrote our post yesterday, but were ultimately unhappy with the results.
Apologies for the delay, and we’ll be back on our regularly scheduled programming soon enough.
