Welcome to the All-New, All-Different (Sorta) Hello, I Must Be Going / Semi-Sabbatical Post: Summer & Early Fall Edition

It was the 1930 film, Animal Crackers, where the great Groucho Marx sang the song, "Hello, I Must Be Going." It went a little like this: "Hello, I must be going, I cannot stay, I came to say, I must be going. I'm glad I came, but just the same, I must be going." With that being said, I must now take this song as my own, and bid all my blogging fans, my faithful readers and true believers, a fond and tearful farewell. Okay okay, stop your weeping. I'm not really going away. Well, I am...sorta. But not for long, and not completely. Please allow me to explain further.

You see, as many of you may already know, I am currently at work on a book. That's right, a book! It's title is "Forgotten TV: 101 TV Shows You've Probably Never Heard Of." Please pardon the prepository ending of the subtitle. I may fix that in post production. Anyhoo, I am writing this book on TV shows that have been forgotten throughout time, some wrongfully forgotten, others rightfully so (check out an earlier post about this book), and I plan on having it done and ready to go by the beginning of October, at the latest. After that, with a hopeful publication date of early 2016. If anyone will publish the damn thing that is. But those are worries for after I finish writing the book. For now, I need to focus most of my so-called creative energy (all 'dem flowin' juices) on finally finishing said book. And in doing that, I must take a semi-sabbatical from All Things Kevyn. But only a semi-sabbatical, not a full blown walk-away. So, for the next fifteen weeks, aka the Summer and early Fall, I will be working a lot on my book, and very little on this blog. I know, it's sad. You won't have your All Things Kevyn fix 3 or 4 times a week like you are used to. Instead, over the next fifteen week semi-sabbatical, you will only get that fix ten times. That's right, just ten posts over the next fifteen weeks, not counting this one. Now do not worry, these will be ten fun posts. It's quality, not quantity, and all that jazz. Mostly, other than a birthday post next week, these will be top ten lists or something of that ilk. So, ya got that going for ya.

Anyhoo, please allow me to bid you all a (slight) farewell, and say, hello, I must be going...for now. Like I said, I will be seeing you ten times over the next fifteen weeks. And you can still check me out on Facebook and Twitter, and all those outlets. Come October, when I am finally finished with the aforementioned book-a-roonie, I will get back to a regular blogging schedule of 3 to 4 posts per week. All the old regulars will be back. The Alphabet Game. The 11 Question Interview. People Who Need To Be Punched in the Face. The Heavenly Body of the Week. Film & TV reviews galore. All the fun stuff. Until then, take it easy, enjoy my ten Summer/Early Fall posts, and check me out on Facebook and Twitter. Oh, and put aside a few bucks to buy my new book when it comes out. Ya know ya wanna. That's it gang. See ya 'round the web.


  1. I will look forward to this book! One has to take some time away to get certain things done so look forward to your posts and congrats on the goal for October!

  2. I'm looking forward to the book as well. I dig pop culture in all its weird forms. If you plan on doing self-pubbed, go for either Amazon or Lulu.
