Movin' On Up: Why I Haven't Been (and Won't Be) Updating This Blog

UPDATE: You should also come see my stuff over at

I started this blog for one reason: I have an insatiable urge to write about movies. In a perfect world, I'd be able to sustain myself by doing just that. The world isn't perfect, but it has gotten a little easier to tolerate over the past year.

Since last September, I've become a regular contributor over at, and that has been a dream come true. It's a movie site that I've been reading for over ten years, and now I've become a significant member of its crew. I've been doing my best to make the site the kind of place I'd want to read regarding movie news, editorials, op-eds, and columns. We now have a sizable team of writers over at CHUD, and we're in the process of doing some really special stuff that will be coming over the horizon shortly.

I'll also be starting my first freelance review gig for my local paper The News-Press doing play reviews. That gig will start in about a month, and I'm unbelievably excited about it.

And, as you few readers may know, I do a weekly podcast called The Drew Reviews Podcast. While there have been new episodes, I haven't had the time or the memory to post them here due to my other duties.

Add to all this a regular job that I work at for 40 hours a week and you can see how crazy my life can be.

So, as of now, I won't be updating this blog. All the stuff I would be writing on here (movie reviews, op-eds, columns) will be at CHUD, so follow that link above to check that stuff out as well as other great writings from other talented contributors. As far as the podcast goes, the best way to stay updated with it is to subscribe to it. You can do that via SoundCloud or iTunes, and also by following us on Twitter @thedrewreviews.

For anyone who has read this blog, I want to thank you immensely. It's helped me get one step closer to actually fulfilling what I want out of life, and that's all one can really hope for in this less than perfect world.
