I have made a blog! I have done so for several reasons, the primary one being that I wanted to create a portfolio for myself – to store and preserve my writing; considering that I plan to pursue (a) graduate degree(s) in Film Studies, and hope to one day be writing or teaching professionally, I think sharing my writing over the internet is a beneficial first step.
Thus far, each post on this site has been published for archival purposes. They are, at once, a reference for myself, as well as a vehicle for onlookers to travel back and discover my earliest documents; therefore, not only do these posts buttress my writing history – and, by extension, my writing ability and development – they provide visitors plenty of material to surf through, even at this early stage.
It goes without saying that this is a film blog – essays, reviews, and lists; however, I may occasionally post on another subject. Regardless, this site is conceived on the basis of aesthetic appreciation, so all posts will deal with the valuing of some sensory-type object of experience, such as music, television, or, quite possibly, liquor (wines, whiskies, and ales).
So, without further ado, welcome to my site – hope you like it!
