Melbourne, let’s comedy

So there’s only slightly more than a week left to the Melbourne International Comedy Festival. I think the past year in Melbourne, I’ve started to really be into comedy e.g. dragging friends with me to attend comedy nights and watching panel shows (and sometimes, regrettably, Aussie TV) just for my favourite comedians. Whenever I start talking to friends about the comedy fest, they would go, “Whoa, I didn’t know you were so into comedy.” Me either! Sometimes, when I start singing a David O’ Doherty song on Shakira to myself, that’s when I know I’m in for the long haul.

Here’s kinda of a mid-festival wrap up to what I’ve seen, and what I hope to see:

This is now a writing blog

I suppose this can be sorta a general service announcement – in the next few weeks, I’m gonna be revamping Screen Appeals. I’ve gotten lazy/forgetful etc. in maintaining this blog, and it has pretty much become a quote blog (ugh) and I really want to change that.

Screen Appeals will no longer be solely my writings about movies and TV, but my writing in general. This means, expect some comedy reviews, theatre things, and perhaps, more personal updates as well (like with uni or my internships). It sounds like I’m diluting it a bit, but hopefully, by doing so, I’ll actually update.

I’m quite pleased with some of the stuff I’ve written on here, so I do want to keep this blog instead of starting afresh. So, think of this as a new stage of Screen Appeals. I’ll still write about movies and TV, but also more things.
