Casabloga: Introduction

There is a list I have been wanting to make for a long time, but I didn’t know how to do it. It’s a list of the greatest movies of all time (in my opinion). I always felt a mere list wouldn’t be be enough. So it occurred to me the other day to not just make a list, but to explain why I felt each title deserved to be on the list. It was going to be a Facebook status, but when I decided to expand it, it was going to be a Facebook Note. But then I decided that each title should have it’s own entry… I felt this was too big for a mere Note.

Then I remembered this blog. I haven’t posted since October, as I hadn’t had luck finding things to post about. I didn’t want to post the movie posts because up to this point I had only written facts, not opinions. But then I remembered that my very first post in this blog was a review of the Psycho sequels.

Not to mention the subtitle of this blog is, “The Blog About Whatever”. Limiting what I can post about isn’t posting about “whatever”, it’s posting about a specific topic. So now I shall use this blog more now that I’ve freed my mind of that trap. The next posts will be a series I’ll call Casabloga, because I like cheesy jokes.

The first review will be Charlie Chaplin’s City Lights.

About Trevor Boot

I’ve been officially writing since 2004, when I was 15, but I started writing for fun now and then in 2001, when I was 12. I mostly wrote short stories and poems, but then in 2008, I wrote my first novel, titled Xangsburgh. Before this, my writing never really had any direction. I would just write independent stories that had no connection with each other, so I always had to start over from scratch. With Xangsburgh, I had a fictional city I could base all my stories in, with the stories building on each other. For me, that made writing easier, because now I don’t have to start from scratch every time. I could use Sheriff Brock without having to introduce him every time. In 2011, I realized I really enjoyed taking pictures. Several of my friends would comment that my pictures were near-professional quality. So on top of my writing, I’m also an amateur photographer. In 2014, I published Xangsburgh, as well as a photo book with some of my favourite photos I have taken, and a book of poems I’ve written between 2001 and 2013.
