Teaser Trailer for The Expendables 2

If you regularly read this blog, you probably like action movies.  And if you like action movies, you probably saw, if not enjoyed, Sylvester Stallone's Neo-Retro 2010 powerhouse The Expendables.  It might not have been perfect, but it was as close as you're going to get these days to a "new" 80's action movie, with a lot of veteran actors as well as a few new faces.

Well, Stallone's doing it again, and this time, we're seeing even more 80's action actors lock and load.  Here's the teaser trailer for The Expendables 2...

I gotta admit, seeing Norris and van Damme is pretty awesome, and we're finally putting guns in the hands of Willis and Schwarzenegger.  Not exactly sure where this movie is going to take us, but I'll sure be along for the ride.

Crawling out from underneath the Work Rock

So a couple of you might have noticed that, well...I disappeared.

I won't get into the gory details, but long story short, my tiny department of 3 dropped to a department of 2 (and, let's be honest, it's really more a department of 1.25...).  My workload and responsibilities increased a lot this fall, and coupled with a few other hiccups here and there, my time for writing, blogging, or really anything else that was fun went away.

But now, I think it is safe to say that if I'm not entirely back to my usual level of writing and posting, I'm making a concerted effort to get there.  I have a lot of editing work to do on my larger writing projects, and I've got a couple of short story ideas in the pipe.

I've also got a lot of book reviews I'd love to get out there, so hopefully this week i can put a few of those out for reading, and get the ol' Blogger grindstone milling away once again.

Gotta say, it feels good to be back.
