New site

For those of you who don’t know, I’m writing for another media website these days. I’m still doing Blunt Talk for Geekbinge, but am doing American Horror Story: Hotel for 411Mania. I was assigned to do South Park for them as well.
Yeah, that’s two shows on one night. Something I used to try to avoid (though not well).

The hard part?

I only have 90 minutes from the time a show ends to make pictures, upload them to a 3rd party site (they don’t let writers upload pics to the site), write, post, and format the whole review with an additional tl:dr paragraph.

That’s probably going to be okay for South Park. But my habit it to spend 2 1/2 to 3 hours on review for a show that’s an hour long (or more, since AHS has a habit of running between 10-30 minutes over). I worry that my reviews won’t be as good as readers are used to.

Also, 411Mania gets a lot more traffic. Commenters seem to be mostly dudes, and the sort who immediately get personal when they disagree with you. As such, I’m not engaging in the comments–with anyone. That’s almost a drag, because I love a passionate discussion between fans. But I’m not going to validate bullshit with a response.

In other news, I need a haircut.
The chick I like doesn’t have any appts open for at least 4 weeks. Just as well, since the cabs to her place cost more than the damn haircut. I’ll probably just go to the mall. I’m in the mood for a super short cut.
