Between Bob's Vlogs, the FaceBook page, twitter, www. monkeyjoke.com, www.thetwoandonly.com and actual duties for the up coming filming I'm in overload. The blog is getting the short shrift of this involvement.
That is a shame as far as I am concerned. The blog is where I get to think about more than just this performance. If I am not blogging about the show then there is a tug from the capitalist inside of me that says I need to spend the energy in promotion. The problem with all of this social media and Internet traffic is the microscopic attention span of the participants. It seems if you don't post something most every day you get lost in the avalanche. And although I think that pictures of cats doing funny things is entertaining, there are just so many that I can absorb in a day.
The traditional ways of promoting a show or event have changed so radically in the last few years all solid templates are out of date. It used to be if you could afford a big ad in the local news it was good as gold for attendance. With print media struggling it is not as good of an investment as it once was.
All this to say that I miss being able to write about anything that I want to in this blog. It just gets pushed to the back of the "to do list".
So if there are any readers still checking this blog, it will soon return to normal. There are only a few weeks before the shoot.
Thanks for hanging in there, if you are, keep checking the Jjtwoandonly facebook page for more up to the minute information. It may be that I have to keep my ramblings to 140 characters and tweet rather than blog. I'm not sure that I could ever be that succinct and economical with my words but if that becomes the attention span of the general public, I guess that is progress.
More later from these same venues of communication.
As you were,
