Welcome to the Friday Free For All, where I’ll post things that don’t seem to fit anywhere else.This week on the Free for All: Spotify melts my face, FX’s ‘FARGO’ looks pretty interesting, and I’m finally starting to get my online platform together (I think).
First off, some entertainment: This little earwig showed up on my Spotify suggestions a couple of weeks ago, and I couldn’t stop listening to it. I found the official video, and couldn’t stop watching it. I’ve embedded both the official video and the video for a pretty cool live performance. Forgive me if this was a huge song years ago…I don’t follow music as much as I used to.
Next up is the new FX show, ‘FARGO’, starring Angelina Jolie’s Ex husband and Younger Bilbo Watson. It’s based on the movie of the same name directed by the Coen Brothers. I’ve never seen the original movie (something I’ll rectify this weekend), but the show promises to be its own thing. Since FX has a decent pedigree and ‘Justified’ just wrapped its season, I’m looking for something new to watch on Tuesdays. Here’s a seven minute look at the pilot:
WARNING: BUZZWORDS INCOMING!
So, as far as my ‘Online Platform’ and ‘Social Media Presence’ is concerned, its been lacking as of late. Actually, it was never there to begin with. That changes now! Prepare yourself, Internet, to be BLITZED!
Actually, no. I won’t be blitzing anything. I will be keeping a more rigid schedule. And I’m telling people about this schedule because it’ll add pressure to keep to said schedule.
Mondays will belong to my Vicarious Viewing series of reviews. Currently, I’m reviewing ‘Game of Thrones’, but I may throw something else in there at some point. Perhaps a review about a certain giant, radioactive behemoth. Who knows.
Wednesdays belong to ‘Works in Progress’, where I’ll share a bit of writing for you all to set to the torch (I know you want to, but you don’t. Why? It’s the only way I’m going to get better…) or a drawing or something. A few friends of mine from school and I are also planning out a video project, so expect news on that.
Fridays are Free for All. I don’t know what I’ll do. It could be something KRAZY! But probably not. I’m much too evenly keeled for that.
Saturdays and Sundays are workdays. That’s when I’ll be putting together most of my content.
As for Tuesdays and Thursdays, those belong to my project over on a tumblr account I opened a year ago and finally figured out something to do with. It’s called the “Blackwood Gazette”, and it’s a fake news blog that takes place in my fictional ‘Blackwood Empire’ setting (remember Mass Effect 2’s Cerberus Network? No? Well…then…think of The Onion). I haven’t figured a way to embed a tumblr feed on WordPress, so any tips with that will be greatly appreciated. In the mean time I’ll just link them into the Free for All.
So the challenge has been set…I must stick to this schedule. I WILL stick to this schedule! (One week later…)
Until then, have a good weekend, all!
