This is a quick note for those who frequent Silver Emulsion and might be wondering where all that shiny new content is that usually appears here at an alarming rate. Simply put: shit happens. Many things all came together over the last two weeks to make this lack of content possible. So thank God, Satan, the Universe, the Buddha, Mother Earth, Gaia, or whatever deity you believe or don’t believe in for finally quieting my diarrhea of the mouth about movies. Sincere apologies to anyone out there following one of my review series, but know that I am going to resurrect myself from this dead period and be back to posting as normal as soon as possible.
Last week saw a dip in my posts by half (and the two I did post were both written a couple weeks prior), and this week is shaping up to be one of complete unplanned hiatus. I do hope to back in some capacity next week, as I have a lot of interesting things on the table. Things like the latest film from Lloyd Kaufman and Troma (Return to Nukem High), my Blind Spot for this month (Scorsese’s debut film), and a huge stack of 2013 titles (The Grandmaster, 12 Years a Slave, Blue Jasmine, Escape Plan, Thor 2: The Revenge, etc. etc). I also have a book to review and a magazine to review, in addition to all those wonderful review series films I’m dying to get to. So yeah, things are coming. When? Sometime. Thanks for your patience.
To keep the fires stoked and warm while I’m not doing much of anything here, Stephen will have a review up on Wednesday as usual. So be nice and heap lots of traffic and comments on it when it drops.
Hope things are OK with you Will and this ‘unplanned hiatus’ ends up well.
Things are OK for the most part. Things always happen and force me into short periods like this, but I’ve always been able to keep the flow of at least 1-2 reviews coming despite whatever roadblocks life gives me. I’m hoping to be back a little next week, but it might not be till the week after. We shall see. Thanks for the support, as always!
It happens, all right. And blogging is naturally a lower priority than real life concerns. Take care of what you need to take care of, and your readers will still be here when you’re able to pick back up again.
Yeah, as much as I love having this site, it’s definitely a lower priority than real life issues. I have a tendency to put all my free time into it, though, so when I’m not doing it I go a little crazy because I feel like I’m getting behind in all the things I want to do. But in the end, it doesn’t matter. Reviews will come when they come, it’s not like the world is holding itself together based on my content coming out like clockwork! Thanks for the support!
And in an odd moment of coincidence, yesterday (when this post went up) saw the site set a new record for highest number of visits in one day! Not because of this post or anything, just a coincidence. Maybe I should stop posting more often!
Thor 2: The Revenge. That made me chuckle. Come back soon, refreshed and ready, dude!!
Hahaha, right on. I’m always happy to deliver some larfs. I’m still uncertain about next week, but I will definitely have at least one post. I promised to participate in a baseball blogathon, so that post will be up Sunday. I wonder what baseball movie it might be, out of the sea of movies about America’s pastime?
Wouldn’t worry about it man, I’ve gone months before and think it does wonders to not write for a while and jump back on after a break! Good to see things are back on track.
Thanks for the words of encouragement. I do feel stronger coming back after the little break, so it might become a more regular thing.
