-- has it really been a year since my last update? I suppose it
has! The last update was on a Friday the 13th. Eerie and foreboding!
I decided to toss up an update
I'd been letting fester on my drive for a little bit after a
kick-in-the-ass from a fan who asked when another update would be
up. Well, here it is! As is usually happens when a writer alienates
his fans, I wouldn't doubt the redebut is only going to meet the
eyes of about three or four people.
This particular update pays
homage to the smoke monster/man in black of "Lost" fame. I miss
looking forward to that show, but I have to say that I'm
disappointed in its ending. I was actually hoping for many more
answers than were given. Bah!
I've looked for a new hole to
fill the void left by Jack, Sayid, Locke, Kate, and Sawyer. "Persons
Unknown" was a joke; the acting was horrible and I had to wait the
entire season before it actually got remotely interesting ("level 2"
was on a ship?).
So far, "The Walking Dead" shows
promise. I'm a big fan of settings involving utter hopelessness of
returning to normalcy, such as in "War of the Worlds." This weekend,
Yeah, I could go on and on about
that stuff, but I'll cut it short so I have something to write about
Back on the subject of alienation
(haw, haw -- see what I did there?), I'll need folks to spread the
word. If you do a search on Facebook for my email address,
jackson(at)lifeinplasticpants(dot)com, you'll come across my page.
Poke around long enough, and you'll also find the official Life In
Plastic Pants fan page.
