Rebirth (timotheories August 2016)
I’m sure you’ve heard this expression once or twice before, dear readers, but I’m gonna throw it at you again, because it’s relevant for today’s topic.
A lot can change in a month.
You can be on top of the world one minute, and then you’re struggling for air the next. After all, nothing in life is certain, except for death and the occasional rebirth. It happens all the time in comic books after all.
And for one well considered reason or another, the comic book movie train won’t stop, so for all intents and purposes, it is a fantastic time to be a fan of the genre.
Which is why it’s important to talk about another kind of rebirth. Yeah, that’s right you sneaky monkeys, I’m gonna share what’s happening during the month of August on timotheories. We’ve already had a post about covering off the importance of professionalism in relation to your creative brand, a review of the excellent film Whiplash, and a review of Michael Kiwanuka’s soul album Love & Hate. But I know you’re already wondering what’s next.
So let us get the disclaimer out of the way, then we can dive right on in and go over the schedule.
*Disclaimer* As always, every week I purchase an album and movie one week ahead of the actual review release and while I have the best intentions, I don’t always get what I want… so if you follow me on instagram (@timotheories) you can actually see what’s coming.
Awesome sauce, let’s get to it then:

The year of all killer, no filler continues friends! Nothing quite like laying it all on the line and getting right to the point. Without this strategy I wouldn’t be able to reinvigorate the weekly grind quite so easy.
For starters, you definitely won’t want to miss episode eight of Cross Talk. Chris and I decided to bring K. G. Singh back as a regular staffer and this time we’ll chat about what distinguishes a re-watchable movie from a quality movie. Awesome sauce, as was already mentioned.
On top of that, I realized I initially promised an interview with Brad Fehr didn’t I? But instead I snuck in a nice teaser. Well don’t be alarmed, because the full length interview is coming out this Sunday AND I’ll even share another interview with grad student Megan Warkentin. Her interview will be all about exploration, or to put it another way, an excellent opportunity to consider opportunity.
Now it might seem like we’ve covered it all, but I think my next plan is to drop that Just In Time Games series into your lap, but we’re not quite there yet. We’ve got lots of test footage, and a decent amount of see games sampled, so the anticipation will continue to build. I know, I’m being a little flaky, but I promise it’ll be worth it.
And those are all of the theories I can come up with for now friends. Please leave some comments, to let us know what you want to see in coming months and subscribe to the blog too!
