Vlog: On the Death of my Robotech Blog and Starting a New Series.

On the off chance you don’t want to watch the video above, here’s what you need to know going forward:

1) I’m going to be doing these little videos once a week for the foreseeable future. The idea is that I’m going to try and chronicle where I’m going and what I’m doing for the next year, maybe longer. Hopefully where I’m going and what I’m doing is going to be interesting. I know I have plans, some of which I spilled on Twitter months ago, and some of which I’m spilling now.

2) In the immediate future, starting next week, I’m going to be writing about Robotech again. God knows I’ve written enough about Robotech that everyone should be SICK of me writing about Robotech. I’m tackling the TV series again from the start, with the intent that THIS time I’ll actually make it through the whole thing. In order to facilitate that, I’m going to try and be brief, maybe one or two paragraphs. Let’s see how long I hold myself to that. (It’s not going to be the “ten bullet points of several paragraphs apiece” monster “365 Days of Robotech” was laid out to be, at least, that’s for sure.) No interruptions to talk about old, crummy comic books, no getting side-tracked. Five days a week, so with the same rhythm that you’d have with the show in daily syndication back in the mid-to-late 1980’s. I will set aside some time to talk about Robotech II: The Sentinels and Robotech: The Shadow Chronicles some weekend, too.

I’ll probably start watching the show and writing these this weekend after work, get a few under my belt. If I can keep watching a couple of episodes a day, this shouldn’t take very much time at all. As I always say, though, fingers crossed on that.
