With A Closing Door, Another Surely Opens

Wow… 2020 was one crazy year, huh?

But let’s face it, you all knew that. We’ve all lived through the same insanity with the same ups and downs. It’s given us a lot of time to reflect and that goes for me as well. I’ve thought a lot about things going forward and I’ve come to a decision: I am retiring from my Reel Snippets.

This is not a decision I’ve made lightly, but it’s one that I feel has been a long time coming. Even before work dried up from the pandemic, I’ve been struggling with them for some time. I saw both Onward and Sonic the Hedgehog before the big lockdown, but whenever I tried to write something… nothing came. Even though the writing wouldn’t go on the page, it was already on the wall — this ride was coming to an end.

Part of it might be that I grew tired of looking at movies under a critical lens. Another part might be that life is too short and I really, REALLY don’t want to spend chunks of it on Adam f***ing Sandler movies. Either way, I can’t say that I’m truly sad about it, though. Everything in life comes in peaks, valleys, and cycles, so I’m kind of at peace with that. I don’t really know why this happened. All I know is that it’s time to move on to other projects. And believe me… I have some good projects cooking.

On a similar note, I am also going to be unlaunching my Patreon for the time being. Not only is it not fair to charge people for effectively nothing, but some of my projects are going to require that I don’t get any income on them, so I need to cover my bases. Honestly, it’s not much of a hassle. I’ve already declined payments for months at a time and taking down a Patreon page doesn’t have to be permanent.

Take care, one and all. And don’t worry… I’ll be back before you know it.

    It has been a fun ride. Rest assured that Reel Snippets brought me a lot of grins, some true chuckles and even the occasional belly laugh. RS brought me to see movies that were not on any of my lists. It was wonderful to watch your writing sharpen and to read in awe of the breadth of your knowledge about film and popular culture. Thanks for the journey and I can’t wait to see where you go next.
