On this, the anniversary of my birth (I think it’s time to stop telling the Internet how old I am, which is a bit of a giveaway as to my age anyway) it’s time to reflect a little, at least for a minute or two.
There. That was enjoyable.
There was a time when I considered making this blog a Rocky-only blog that would feature posts on Apollo Creed, the third and fourth Rocky movies versus the first two, and Apollo Creed. I soon found out I had enough trouble writing on my blog regularly without worrying about making Rocky-specific content.
However, I do think I’ll be ferrying some this way soon. Some ideas on Rocky-based content:
- Why “Where’s your hat?” is the best line in the first Rocky movie
- Apollo Creed, the best character in the Rocky series
- Burt Young is amazing
- Rocky 3 is a kids’ movie (this is a recent realization for me)
- I find Rocky 4 enjoyable mostly because I’m a professional historian
There. That should do it for a while. Blogging is an odd thing, you know. I find it intimidating because I want my posts to be good, but I rarely have time to sit down and write anything much longer than five hundred words. There’s also so much great stuff out there. I’m going to write a blog post soon on my favourite line of dialogue in the whole series and I doubt I’ll make a single point that comes close to the marvellous insight into storytelling that the Hulk shares with his readers on a regular basis. Still, that’s the beauty of blogs: democracy in action.
At least I check my work for typos. Be grateful, Internet!
