Hey, everyone! Vic here to announce that I will be taking a bit of a break from posting new reviews for the rest of the summer and quite possibly most of the fall. My family’s summer has been very busy with various outdoor activities like picnics, trips, cook-outs and visits to beaches along Lake Ontario.
As many who live here, in Rochester or Western New York already know, the summers are short and if you don’t take advantage of the great weather, you’ll blink and it will already be October. Like we say here: “Rochester has 2 Seasons. Winter and Construction.”
The other, even more exciting reason, would be that my wife and I are house hunting, and what all of you home owners already know, is that it is a grueling, tiring, exhaustive process but with the greatest reward in the end. After we decide on a home, the move and settling in will be taking up most of my time.
So, in the meantime, I will be doing some other types of posts to fill in a bit. I may re-edit some older reviews, do some Top 5 or 10 lists, whip up some On The Set or Behind the Scenes posts or have some of my great contributors help out during my hiatus.
My sincerest thanks to everyone who drops by on a regular basis to like my posts, leave comments and feedback as well as sharing and re-tweeting on social media. I cannot stress enough how grateful and appreciative I am for the support and interaction. You are all the best followers, readers, and blogger brothers and sisters that a normal everyday shmoe like me and my small modest blog could ever have. I will keep you all posted and updated on any new movie reviews that are on the way.
Once things settle down, I will have drafts ready to post for some of the following movies:
Rob the Mob
They Came Together
Doc of the Dead
Wolf Creek 2
Cold Prey II
In The Blood
Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and more!
So stay tuned, please stay in touch and thanks so very much for stopping by ‘The Den!
All the Best,
Best to you, Vic 🙂
Thanks Michael. I’ll stay in touch, man! 🙂
Have a great summer break Vic 😀
Thanks Paul! You as well. I appreciate all of the support and feedback. I will stay in touch! 🙂
Cheers Vic 😀
Looking forward to Snowpiercer Vic. The graphic novel is awesome, but I suspect the movie is less so.
Haven’t read the GN yet but I have seen some panels. I may get it from my library to check out. The film is quite good but I know some do prefer the GN overall to the movie.
Thanks for checking in, Maurice. I’ve appreciated all of your support and feedback, man! 🙂
As a fellow Northern New Yorker, I understand this sentiment very week. I’ve been a lot more lax with my posting as well for the very same reason. 😉 Best of luck in your house hunting, hope you find a really great place!
Thanks Billy! I really appreciate it. So far, house hunting has been quite fun but anxious to finally get all of the red tape over with so I can look forward to the actual move.
I’ll stay in touch, man!
Have a great summer and hope the weather out there is treating you well. 🙂
Thanks! The weather so far, after that last bad rain storm we had, is pretty good. Much less humidity and the beaches have been so much fun.
I appreciate you checking in. Thanks very much for all of your support and feedback 😉
Sounds like you have great plans, and I look forward to your return to the internet world of movie analysis!
Thanks John! I hope to get things wrapped up as soon as possible but we still have a ways to go and we have a bunch of activities on top of that, that are still to come.
Thanks for all of your support on my page, John. It is very appreciated and I’ll stay in touch!
Bring on Snowpiercer. I really need to see that. Best of luck to you.
Snowpiercer it is! I’ll make that my first review when I get back. Thanks for the well wishes and for always checking in. I appreciate it!
Cool. Have fun man and good luck with the house hunting 😀
I will, Tim! I will keep you posted, man and thanks for the well wishes and for always stopping in. You rock!
sounds exciting Vic! good luck with the house hunting and enjoy the great summer weather, just make sure to send me your review for the Hitchcock blogathan before you sign off 🙂
cant wait to see what you have done!
Will do, Rob! I have started a draft and I will try to bang out the rest later next week. I’ll do my best and keep you posted.
Thanks for the well wishes, Rob and for all of your support on my page. Enjoy the rest of your weekend, man! 🙂
Good luck to you, Vic, and your home search! While I’ll miss reading your reviews over the summer, I look forward to your future projects, once you get back in the swing of things.
Even though some things won’t grind to a total halt on the blog, I just need some time off to recharge and get other things taken care of (like the house search).
One other being that I enjoy my summer with the family. Sometimes, it felt as if it were actual work getting content up on the page instead of it being a casual and fun hobby to enjoy and share with others.
Often, I would find myself rushing or urging myself to watch movies that were current or new just to have new content. It felt really strange. So I had to stop and take a step back. So what if everyone else gets all of the new flicks reviewed and dissected. I have a long list of films to get to but I’ve learned that they can wait.
I’m learning that I don’t have to always keep up with the Joneses, you know?
I have always appreciated your support on my blog and of course, on Twitter, where you have been a great friend. I will get into the swing of things very soon! Thanks for the well wishes, Barry. I truly appreciate it 🙂
No need to explain a thing. Just enjoy yourself, indulge in some photography, and I hope that perfect homestead finds your family soon. Much success!
Thanks, Bill. Always great to hear from you brother! I will definitely stay in touch and keep you posted. Getting ever closer to getting that new DSLR, too 🙂
Thanks for the kind words, my man. I really appreciate your support and friendship!
As long as you make sure to come back! Got it?!?!?! 😉
Absolutely! 😀 I love doing all of this way too much to never return, haha.
Funny thing, too. Last night before logging off my laptop, I thought: Man, I need to check in on Keith’s page. I haven’t dropped by in a while! I usually try to catch up with everyone at least once a week but I’ve been so darn busy.
I will definitely stay in touch, Keith. It was great hearing from you. Enjoy the rest of your week, bro! Thanks for checking in 🙂
Hey I understand. Life happens. Good luck on the house hunting. Hopefully the stress level won’t get too high.
Thanks, Keith! So far the experience has been quite positive but sometimes really exhaustive.
What keeps me going is having faith and keeping my eye on the prize for the long run. My family is very excited, too. So it’s all good.
So far, the stress levels are pretty low (for now, lol). 🙂
Best of luck on your house hunting, Vic! Have a great summer.
Thanks Eric! Things are looking good. I appreciate the kind words!
Good luck on the house hunting! Or have you already found one in the intervening time?
Thanks Josh! Yes, we have narrowed in on one home and we are shooting for the closing in late August. Thanks very kindly for the well wishes 🙂
Awesome! I’m sure you’ll love having your place!
