It’s been a little over a year since this modest corner of the Web got launched anew as a fully independent entity complete with Facebook and Twitter platforms (please subscribe!), and I feel now would be a good time to take stock of what’s been going on at The Dreamersedge and where we’re headed. Since the site’s creation, we’ve gradually moved from weekly updates to posting exclusive new material every other day, so we’ve got lots of exciting announcements to make this month.
As many of you know, September is premiere season for North American television networks, and we mean to keep our long-standing couch potato tradition of discussing the new series coming out. Like last year, we plan on posting a critique of some of the major pilots (those that interest us at any rate) within one week of their respective broadcasts. We’ve already got the ball rolling with TNT’s Major Crimes, and you can expect more in-depth articles on Revolution and Go On to name a few.
This is not to say we’re going to put our weekly movie reviews on hold. Regular readers may have noticed we’ve been keeping up to date with the latest theatrical releases, and that’s not going to stop. Our video game reviewer, Nick, will also continue his Metroid retrospective, writing about each entry he’s played throughout the years, and you can expect more literary critiques from Chris, who’s in the midst of his own long-term endeavour: the Dark Tower Project, for which he’s been going through every Gunslinger novel by Stephen King.
Interested in something more summary? One of our most successful experiments this year has been the Contributor Picks column, in which the various writers on the site share their recommendations for a given subject. This month’s topic is labour, scheduled for Labour Day of course, so please stay tuned as more contributors join our ranks, including recurrent co-hosts Éric Leroux and Frank Pominville from the DE Podcast.
Oh, have I mentioned the DE Podcast is back? To prevent any unforeseen hiatus this year (we know you hate those), we’ve recorded a few episodes in advance. This season’s theme is the best and worst in cinematic history. We’ll be listing our top and bottom movies from each decade, starting from the aughts and going all the way back to film’s humble beginnings (or to whenever you need us to stop discussing silent features you’ll never see anyway). We’re also planning a special audio review of The Cabin in the Woods to coincide with its DVD release.
If you’ve got any request or suggestion, please let us know in the comments section below. You can also write us privately using the form here. We’re always looking for feedback. Incidentally, we’re also looking to boost up our social media subscriptions, so please click here to follow us on Tweeter or here to like us on Facebook, and don’t be shy about posting your thoughts. The Dreamersedge is, after all, where fiction becomes conversation!
