Now, a few months ago I talked about starting immediately on my next big blog project, The Near-Apocalypse of '09 as soon as The Very Soil was done. That's not happening for a couple of reasons. First of all, the DCAU is both enough older than Madoka or Friendship Is Magic, and distributed over a long enough period of time, that something like a true psychochronography is possible for it. I therefore wish to attempt one--and that requires a lot more advance research and planning than more traditional forms of analysis. I'm just not ready to start yet! Second, there is another project I want to do--the very nature of which requires that I not publicly discuss what it is until it's complete--and there's no way I can do it, My Little Po-Mo, and Near-Apocalypse at the same time.
So, the current plan is that Wednesdays will become normal "thought of the day" days. I'm building a backlog of Thoughts About Utena Episodes I posted at Mark Watches, so I'll probably use those for the first few Wednesdays. Maybe I'll dedicate them to variable-length musings on anime or something, but they won't have any "official" recurring feature. Fridays will continue to be Fiction Fridays, and I'm going to be sticking as much as I can to Felda and her adventures. Sundays will be My Little Po-Mo until I run out of episodes, at which point they will become The Near-Apocalypse of '09.
Finally, a bit of near-future planning: I'm busy Saturday and can't do the liveblog. Options are:
- Skip this week.
- The usual thing where you folks do it and post it in a comment, and then I come behind and do my own liveblog later.
- Move it two hours earlier.
