Killing Time – December 29, 2014 “Happy Holidays”


Veteran fans of KT are running through the streets, tearing at their eyeballs at the lack of order.  We do MY FAVORITE SCENE on Tuesdays and KILLING TIME on Thursdays!  WHAT MADNESS HAVE THE ALIGNING STARS BEGOT?  Well, let’s all take a breath, firstly.  There.  Wasn’t that ten kegs of fun?  Now here’s the thing.  The holidays for a person who has just lost a spouse are supposed to be legendarily bad.  That’s a complete untruth.  Imagine taking your heart our of your chest with something akin to a melon baller and then playing hackysack with it for weeks.  That’s about 10% of how bad it actually is.  So bad that I nearly didn’t even get to The Hobbit!  THE HOBBIT!  Ok, do we see the gravity of the sitch?  It, being the holidays, is mostly looking back, retrospectives and lists of the best of the year and I feel there are a lot of films I need to see before I can fairly compose one.  I’m also traveling to the Baltimore area, where the harbor is one of the most beautiful spots in America and two blocks over you remember that Homicide and The Wire were both set in Baltimore.  I’m going to be traveling with my second family, with whom I’m currently staying in the balmy climes of NE Ohio (motto “What’s that glowing orb in the sky?”).  This isn’t an official hiatus.  In fact, I’d be surprised if I went the week without posting to my KT peeps.  We had a huge year for growth despite my life exploding in September and had roughly 140k hits to the 40k we had in 2013.  We’re going to bulid on that in the new year and I have plans to use this blog to sharpen my writing and to force myself into a routine of dialogue over the lands that lie second star to the right and straight over the rainbow that we all love to lose ourselves in.  I’m off to Maryland and I’ll talk to you soon.
