Yes, it’s true. I haven’t been posting much actually written by, um, me, lately. Mostly because of the pressures of moving (ooh, the Brodys finally bought a new house – yay!), health issues (ooh, all gone – yay!), house guests (ooh, still here – yay!), and coming up with the moolah to pay for it all (ooh, also still here – holy crap!) but my personal non-New Year’s resolution is to write more for TVWriter™ so I’m back for as long as you’ll have me.

(No, munchman, the “you” in the above paragraph isn’t you. It’s everyone else, AKA the wonderful visitors to this site.)

I’m a little out of practice, so let’s consider this post a kind of warm-up. Some fun stuff that’ll enable me to slide into tougher subjects in the coming weeks.

Jalopnik.Com

Paragraph 1 notwithstanding, I want this:

fordgt

Although I might settle for this:

chevy

Slashfilm

I’m not a zombie fan, not in films, TV, nor real life. But I’m definitely going to watch this new show:

See? I really do watch TV…and many times I genuinely like it.

More to come. (Yeah, that’s a warning.)
