Right now I'm feeling more productive and focused than I have since I started this blog. I know some of you are getting a little bored of the constant stream of daytime TV bootage. I feel your pain, but for the first time I know what I'm going to do tomorrow. In the past I'd waste hours figuring out what I was going to post. I'd start down one direction and then get side-tracked or decide it wasn't really worth it or get distracted by any number of shiny objects. There were days when I'd sit here for 2 hours and wouldn't have a single new thing to post.
These compilation clips I'm making are the culmination of countless of hours of work I did during the winter. Much of the time I was plagued by doubts that I'd ever really do anything with the 100's of gigabytes I was transferring from DVR to hard-drive. And now that I'm actually marching through them it feels great. A couple of days ago I decided I'd just go through the clips chronologically. When it's time to work on the blog, I know I stopped working on the the clips from Oct 27 (the day I transferred them, NOT the air-date which is lost) and I move on to the clips from the 28th. It's liberating and productive and maybe the end result is a little monotonous. Someday I'm certain to get tired of it and move on to prime-time action shows and feature films (vintage and new). I'll still take some detours with other clips that catch my fancy, but man, this really feels good right now.
