I've Been Plotting and Planning...


During my recent hiatus from the site, I have been adjusting some of my plans in regards to the blog.  A few things have been delayed, others will continue forward with only minor disruption, and a couple of brand new ideas have sprung to mind.

I was hoping to launch my "Radio TCoT" project this October, but I will have to delay that until the end of May.  Until then, I'll use the time to learn and tinker with my sound editing software so that when I DO launch the podcast, I can present you with a decent product.

With the new computer, I can once again resume work on "Project Terror Wear"- which is what I've named the ongoing development of hoodie and t-shirt designs for the site.  I have a couple of designs already created, and am working on getting them actually produced for sale.  I'll be posting sneek peaks of these designs over time, and will keep you all updated on this project.

The first new "episode" of "What Movie Wednesday" will take place October 3rd- and I'm excited about it.  I've really missed having people vote on the movies I watch and tweet to.  Also, keep your eyes open at the end of May for a "Special Announcement" regarding this feature!

One new project is my new blog, "Life in the Corner."  With this blog, I'll be gving everyone a look at the life of a blogger and reviewer.  You'll get a glimpse at the behind the scenes of what I do here at "The Corner of Terror," as well as away from the desk.  I'm hoping that it'll be as interesting and entertaining as what I do here.  My first entry there will be on October 8th!

Okay, so there's a quick update on the things I've got on the go right now.  I hope you're all as excited about the days, weeks, months ahead as I am!

Gremlins and the Deluge...


It has been a long 2 1/2 months since my last blog post here.  For that, I am sincerely sorry.

July 15, which saw my last blog post, also saw us get flooded.  A valve on the hot water tank broke, and the water spread throughout the basement.  The damage amounted to the following items:
  • The bathroom lino had to be replaced;
  • The sink cabinet had to be replaced;
  • The kitchen lino had to be replaced;
  • The kitchen cabinets had to be replaced;
  • The carpet outside the bathroom had to be replaced;
  • The carpet by the laundry room had to be replaced;
  • The living room carpet had to be replaced;
  • The carpet in the two bedrooms had to be replaced; and
  • A good chunk of the wall in my bedroom had to be replaced.
That wouldn't have been so bad if I hadn't been plagued by computer problems as well.  Those included:
  • Hard drives not being detected;
  • Read disk errors with the hard drive;
  • Blue screens of death;
  • Computer freezing up;
  • Sound card problems (including one instance of the "Scooby Doo Theme" suddenly being converted into dubstep); and
  • Boot disk errors.
Since it would've been unfair to you to put you through constant postponments of "What Movie Wednesday" (I had to do that two weeks in a row if I remember correctly), and potentially sporadic postings, I felt it was best to put "The Corner of Terror" on hold until these problems could be resolved.

Well, as of this post, the bulk of the situation has been fixed.  I have a new computer, so I can actually start doing my reviews and "What Movie Wednesday" feature again at least.  Soon- we're hoping by the 28th or so, my room will be finished- which means I can then move back into it (rather than sleeping in the downstairs living room surrounded by boxes, etc) and can then begin work again on a few other projects as well- which I'll discuss a bit more in my next post.

For now however, let me say that it's great to be back.  I've really missed posting here, and I'm looking forward to getting fully into the swing of it again!
