Quick status update

posted by Eivind on February 14, 2011, at 11:40 pm

Hey guys,

I feel called to give you a short status update on the progression of certain things on this website. First of all, I re-watched The Fisher King for  the first time in forever on Friday and the movie is germinating in my subconscious as we speak. There's a lot of great stuff there. I think it will be a really cool review.

Then there is the video for the Warrior archetype. I have been meaning to finish it for a long time. This is the reason why I'm writing actually since I feel a bit bad for not having completed it yet. All the raw material is ready and I have color- and sound-adjusted the somewhat dodgy raw material (same as for the King video). I have been wanting to up the production quality of it a bit, featuring music, movie clips and text popups, but this is taking longer than I had anticipated.

The main reason is that I've had to resume full time work for the month of February to not go bust. Making time for Masculinity Movies work is a huge financial strain on my life and that is why things are not progressing anywhere near as quickly as I would like.

Well,  I just wanted to tell you about this. Also, don't forget that I've set up the community site for you guys. The Tribe has about 30 members now and is a bit slow, but shows promise. That also takes time. Come to think of it, I'm friggin' proud of the stuff I manage to do with the meagre time and resources I have at my disposal. Yeah, I just tuned into that and I feel that deeply. Fuck, no reason to feel guilty - I'm doing my best to bring you the best I have to offer. I'm fucking dedicated to this stuff. I'm not going anywhere. So please stick around.

So thank you for your patience - the meat will come soon. I will have Fridays off again in March.

    I’m consistently astounded at the quantity and quality of work you’ve done just in the time since I first visited this site and made your acquaintance last summer. I also know those financial strain and time and resource issues all too well, as I’m dealing with them myself all the time.

    When you have so many ideas and so much to offer, those constraints can feel all the more acute, frustrating, and oppressive, and it can be very easy to lose sight of what you’ve done already. I’m glad you were able to tune into some feelings of pride and appreciation for what you’ve accomplished so far, ’cause what you’ve accomplished so far is pretty great! And there is a lot more to come, in the proper time.

    Thanks, Rick – that feels good to hear.

    And yeah, I totally got the better of my subtle masochist voice there. I’m doing a lot to be proud of. I’m not going to wallow in not having completed *everything*.

    Yes, there is more to come. Thanks for reminding me.
