In which a group of graying eternal amateurs discuss their passions, interests and obsessions, among them: movies, art, politics, evolutionary biology, taxes, writing, computers, these kids these days, and lousy educations.

Another Self-Promotional Break

Michael Blowhard writes:

Dear Blowhards --

That webseries I helped make? More people are enjoying it. A well-known horror-movie blog says this: "Snappy and sexy ... The characters are colorful and over the top ... Addictive ... I am completely and totally hooked."

If you'd like a link to the series' website -- so far only the trailer can be watched (Episode One goes up next week) -- shoot me an email at michaelblowhard-at-that-gmaily-place. Our goal (I mean, of course, in addition to being entertaining) was to use the webseries format as a way to revive the '70s-style Midnight Movie. So if you don't like naughty words, scrappy production values, gratuitous nudity, and daffy ideas, I urge you to skip our production.

Now back to our regular programming.

Michael, I know you wrote a little about the process of making this movie some time back, but have you thought of writing a longer post (or series of posts) about how you did it? Having seen the trailer, I would be interested to read about it.

You are outing yourself here in a way I can't recall your having done previously, though strangely I do recall having seen that uxorious dude's page before.

Why did you decide to be anonymous in the first place? Has it affected your writing? Does it still seem important?

I look forward to checking out the trailer when I get home next week (right now I'm sitting on an island dock leeching wireless from a hotel).

I may have to tell the Founding Fathers about you.
