In Retrospect, Perhaps Not So Convenient

A long time ago, I felt that perhaps I could expand into another medium. The idea was to create a web series called "All Too Convenient," one where I reviewed TV shows and movies, me being the picky creature that I am. So I tried to make that happen, and despite some interesting lessons, it didn't really work out. As a second attempt, I tried to simply create another blog out of it, but again, it just didn't take. A few months after that, I tried to launch the blog again - but this time with a different approach. Rather than write in a serious fashion, I decided I'd let my humor run wild, and see how that worked. The main idea was to spend…

Interviewing Cosplayers at Dragon*Con 2012

It's no secret that I've been less active with this blog, as of late. I won't go into the details, but I've been putting a lot of time and effort into a certain project, one that I can't yet reveal. What I can say is that it's something that I've been working on for a very long time, and I'm really looking forward to introducing it in the near future. Today, however, I'm happy to announce that I'll be releasing a series of interviews that I hosted from Dragon*Con 2012. I've always wanted to expand into video, and this turned out to be a great way to do so. You may recall that I've previously mentioned wanting to start a web series, and even posted…

Learning All The Things

Over the past month, I've been working with Joseph Pereira to create a web-based review show. Primarily intended for YouTube, the show is titled "All Too Convenient", and will start with us reviewing the first season of a particular TV series. At this moment, we have one episode completed; however, due to the comments we have received, we decided to return to the drawing board, and start anew. It was a tough decision to make, mainly because it took us a month to get one episode fully edited and ready to go. This delay was largely due to Joseph's hectic schedule, as it interfered with his ability to edit the video. His job was further complicated by the fact that the episode was scripted, and…

Introducing All Due Credit

When I write for this blog, I don't always write a post from start to finish, and publish it immediately. Usually, I have to review it multiple times myself, and in certain cases, I decide I want someone else to take a look at it too. In these cases, I typically send the post to one of my friends first, and I await their feedback. At the end of the day, their input allows me to ensure that my content meets a certain standard of quality. Given the significance of their aid, I felt I needed a way to publically thank them, per post.¬†Faced with that idea, I did what any Wordpress user would do - I looked for a suitable plugin within Wordpress's fantastic…
