2008 to 2009, and Media-Watch, 2008

It's 2009, y'all. And, really, I'm quite pleased. There were some incredibly bright spots in 2008 (meeting Desmond Reddick and DZ live and in person at the Lovecraft Film Festival, attending Zompire for the first time, launching Mail Order Zombie, making my first fiction sale, continued success as a columnist for Paperback Reader, just to name a few examples), but there really were quite a few downers that I'm happy to put behind me. Add to this that Brenda and I have some solid plans and goals for 2009 that I'm eager to attack (more writing, more podcasting, career advancement, steps toward better health, etc.), and I'm very happy that today is January 1st, 2009 . . . even if I did sleep in MUCH later than I meant to (and I didn't even drink last night!).

One of the things I did last year was track how many movies I watched. I'm not entirely sure why, but I thought it would be interesting, and then I did the same thing with the books and even magazines I read.*

* There is a possibility that I missed one or two items along the way.

** I did not include trade paperbacks/graphic novels in my ilst of books read. This is only because I failed to keep an accurate record of this for 2008.

*** I only included magazines of which I've read more than 3/4 of their contents.



And, hey, remember when I started listing my Top 50 Reasons I'm a Horror Fan? And I only got through Reasons 21-50 (here, here and here)? I'll be finishing this up within the next week or so . . .
