While I’m averaging one post per month on this site since moving to Seattle, that doesn’t mean I don’t have anything going on. Quite the opposite, and so I thought I’d take a few minutes tonight to update some of my current and future projects heading into the fall.
The Corn Connection
I’m delighted to write that over the past couple of months I’ve been doing some great work with the team at Venganza Media, creating content and promotions for Now Playing Podcast.
Having just wrapped up assisting host Arnie Carvalho on his The 40-Year-Old Critic series, I’m focusing on a series of articles to tie into the show’s current Children of the Corn Retrospective Series. The articles, titled The Corn Connection, identify actors and actresses from the horror franchise and show listeners where they can be found in the Now Playing Podcast archives. It’s not easy, as most of those direct-to-video Corn sequels lack, to put it politely, stars.
As of this writing, the series has covered the first Corn film and three of its sequels. I’m looking forward to this week’s entry: Children of the Corn V: Fields of Terror.
Boulder is that way, so let’s go
One of the most exciting events on my calendar is next month’s CMG Innovation Summit in Boulder, Colorado. This is an annual conference organized by my employer, Cox Media Group. Each year, a handful of employees from around the company are brought together to discuss and generate ideas for the future of media. I’m thrilled to be selected, and I’ll be updating everything that happens during the conference here, and on Twitter and Facebook.
Halloween is coming
This afternoon, while driving around the University District, I noticed the leaves were changing color. I haven’t seen that in more than a decade. I’m am so looking forward to experiencing fall again; and with fall comes Halloween.
I started a new Tumblr project in October 2012 called 31 Days Til Halloween, where I would post a single Halloween-themed item every day for the entire month. I repeated this last year, and plan to launch the project again when October 1 rolls around. I just need to narrow the idea; the first year it was anything Halloween-related, last year it was scary songs. When I figure out what I’m doing this year I’ll post the link on this site.
