Beset by blogger’s block

Happy Friday, all!

No post today as yours truly is beset with a blogger’s block again, happens once in a while y’see, especially when I haven’t seen any new flick in a week! (I have The Kite Runner DVD that’s been on my counter top for six days yet, waiting to be popped into the player). Between an 8-5 workweek, gym classes, errands, chores, etc., etc., whether I like it or not, this thing called life inevitably gets in the way of my bloggin’ time …

I’m sooo looking forward to weekend after the first long work week following the holiday break. I long to unplug and recharge my bloggin’ juice, perhaps take my laptop to a local cafe or bookstore, now that my newish Macbook actually has a functional battery. The number of drafts on my WordPress dashboard continue to climb, some of them are probably stale by now, but there are still reviews to finish, top-ten lists to muse about, even a new FlixChatter ‘series’ in the works, inspired by a fellow blogger that’ll be revealed in due time.

But, but… my writer’s block wasn’t in vain, as I ended up discovering this nifty site called The Auteurs.

the•au•teurs
-n.  [thē ō-tûrs’, thē ō-tœrs’]
1. an online movie theater where you watch, discover, and discuss auteur cinema.
2. a new social experience.

I plan to peruse the site more thoroughly real soon, sounds like a perfect resource for someone like me. Funny enough, Rockerdad just mentioned about the Criterion collection, which happens to be one of their partners. I really enjoyed scanning their picks of movie posters of the week (there’s a link to view their picks of Best of the Decade which totally floored me). If I had my way, I’d cover our entertainment room downstairs with a bunch of these. I might snatch the Art & Copy one for my cube, and the Bright Star one with its lush and vivid colors is one I can stare at for hours.

So, enjoy your weekend, folks, we might finally check out Up in the Air. How about you? Any movie(s) you’re gonna catch this weekend?

    You’re a one person content machine all while holding down a full time job and a blissful marriage. A day of rest or two is well deserved. Bravo!

    1. Awww… thanks for the compliment. I plan on sleeping in a bit on Saturday, watch a movie or two… and hopefully find ample time to blog. This is a great hobby, but I guess ‘life’ still takes priority y’know… as it should! Have a fabulous weekend to you!

    1. Oh no, I definitely can’t take that credit, M. Apparently it’s an old term as there are tens of thousands of results on Google when I typed that in =)

  2. I might be repeating myself…but any time I feel uninspired, I take a few minutes and read what my fellow bloggers are writing a little closer than usual. Usually, after a few minutes, I’ll come across something that sparks a thought.

    Try it sometime!

    As for this weekend, I’m finally seeing SHERLOCK HOLMES. I’ll also be spending it finishing my review of A SINGLE MAN (after procrastinating for a week) and cobbling together episode no. four of my podcast.

    Hope your weekend is a good’n!

    1. Thanks for the tip, Hatter, that’s definitely helpful. There are in fact several posts I wrote that are inspired by other bloggers or movie sites. The challenge is mostly on putting down my ideas down on paper, which explains the 30+ drafts left unfinished 😦 I hope this weekend I get my bloggin’ juice back, he..he…

      Curious to hear your thoughts on Sherlock Holmes. I hope I’ll have a new review come Monday if I do get to see Up in the Air. Have a good one, too!

  3. I suffered from Blogger’s blog over the Christmas and New Year period. I need to watch The Road and Its Complicated at the cinema, which I think I may do on Monday. I still have to catch up with Sherlock Holmes too.

    1. I took some time off around Christmas so I had plenty of time to blog, but once the routine starts to occupy your life, I just get a brain freeze 🙂 Or maybe it’s the insanely cold weather that literally freeze my brain… excuses, excuses! he…he.. Anyway, I’m looking forward to hear your take on Sherlock Holmes!

    1. I just need extra hours in a day… or just better time management, he..he.. I feel pretty good Sunday afternoon as I got some time to blog. Btw, I’m starting a new series based on your post. You’ll find out which one that it 😉
