In the meantime, I’ve written for Canadian Screenwriter, TV, Eh?, and Canuxploitation (okay, Canuxploitation’s blog section, but that’s just splitting hairs.) URBMN was always in the back of my mind, but the real reason I needed to update this site is simple: you can’t be invited to industry functions as media, if your site hasn’t been updated. This makes me read like a selfish asshole, but it’s the truth. It’s awkward at best when I represent other people.
After spending quite a few months writing for other people, and using Google+ as my sounding post for industry bunkum, I find my current strategy just doesn’t work. At heart, I want to work in the television industry, not observe from the sidelines. No one respects you from the sidelines. Working in television is a dream I’ve had since I was a child, in the late 1980s.
Unfortunately, my last post was pretty much a “fuck you” to the Canadian television industry. Fry that up with a can of hash. You don’t want to read my complaints. I don’t want to read my complaints. Things won’t be what they were at URBMN…for however long the site’s name stays URBMN, anyway.
I’m still not sure what URBMN (or its successor site, if/when that becomes a reality) will be in the future. It’s amazing that this site is still active in 2012, given that it started life as a metal music review site/proto-blog called Unbelievably Retarded. Why I’ve wasted a whole decade on this thing, is a question I don’t want to answer. I turned the comments off for this post, anyway. Let’s not speculate.
All I can say is, expect changes. I can’t give a specific date or direction – yet. URBMN’s still here, and I haven’t forgotten about it entirely. For some reason, sweetposer.com still gets around 50,000 visits a month. I might as well give you readers a reason to care about what I do, again.
