For anyone who knows me, the past five months have been crazy with a new addition to my family which is part of the reason why I haven't been posting here regularly. But now that kids are back in school and things are a bit more settled at home, I think it's time to resume.
A Side Quest
You've probably noted that the original plan for my quest here was to write a poem for every Best Picture Oscar winner and it has proven difficult as the inspiration comes and goes. Which is why I have embarked on a side quest (you know every great video game has those) to watch every Oscar nominee from this past year.
As of today, I have seen 48 out of the 62 films nominated for the most recent Academy Awards. That amounts to 77% of the total films and I have seen all films in 10 out of the 24 categories awarded.
Along with this side quest, I also had some new ideas of things to do to bring you dear reader along with me on the journey. One of the ideas I had was to build out some online courses to guide readers through the process of watching all of the films in a given category and discussing them in some manner.
More to come on this as my plans continue to evolve. I think I may start with a short course on watching all of the Best Picture nominees from this past year and determine if there is a desire for people to participate.
If you are interested in participating in this experiment, drop me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
