Look, I Made a Blog

Hi there.  Welcome to my shiny new blog.

When I first joined twitter, I used it mainly as a tool to follow celebrities I like.  I myself rarely tweeted - but as I started tweeting, I became more interested in following local folks, and occasionally joining local conversations.  I've also started reading a bunch of local blogs, and these often leave me thinking: I can write better than they can.  (Not you, of course; your blog is perfection.)  I also had the opportunity to do some blogging for the Calgary International Film Festival as a volunteer, and I really enjoyed that.  So I thought I'd experiment with blogging again.

I've been in Calgary for nearly a decade - I like this city so much that I actually moved here twice.  My main blogging interest is pop culture, particularly movies and television.  I plan on talking about stuff going on in Calgary as well.  I'm not starting this blog with a particular agenda - although I do have lots of ideas - so let's just see where it takes us.  Say hello in the comments, write me an email, insult me on twitter, whatever you want!

(Also, for the next little while, pardon the mess.  I'm still experimenting with the formatting and adding features and all that fun stuff.  It's like moving into a new house!)

First things first: here is a picture of my dog:
