Home From The Hospital

Leave a comment

Hey, kids;

Hello, everyone. Yes, I finally got out of the hospital on Friday and needed two days to recover enough to post anything. This will be my last post for the next week or so as I continue to recover from my stay. I want to be able to give you the best content I can.

So what happened? Apparently I was dealing with something called diculitus. I don’t know if that’s the right spelling because the internet gives me little on that name but will flood my search with diverticulitus which isn’t what I asked for! Stupid internet. While I still need to take antibiotic to flush it out that means I’m not completely cured yet. I also have to get use to being awake and getting my strength back. Still, I’m happy to be home.

As I stated, BW Media Spotlight and The Clutter Reports will remain on hiatus until I’m ready to give my full attention to articles, comics, and video creations. I may write a few things if I’m bored, which Patreon supporters will get to see when they’re done, while BW readers will have to wait until I have a full week of stuff to ease me back into operation.

Meanwhile, The Clutter Reports will have to wait until I’m strong enough to work on projects. I still have those two big ones I need to get done but I’m already losing optical focus as I get to this paragraph. My hope on both sites is to only be gone another week, but this is my first hospital stay since joining the blogosphere and almost a week longer than my longest hospital visits so I can’t say for certain. Hope to review again soon.

Special Christmas Video Review: Yes Virginia, There Is A Santa Claus

I don’t actually own this one but I would love to. The footage for my review came from online. However, of the fictional tellings of how Virginia O’Malley was driven to write to the New York Sun and ask her famous question, this is my favorite. So this year you get an obscure Christmas special I don’t own. We’ll see you for some big projects in 2016 so Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from The Clutter Reports.

Quick Project: Moving The Switch Box

Leave a comment

switch box 1

I had a distracting week due to things that took priority, so I only had time for one quick project. Pardon how dark the picture are, as they are in a dark corner of the studio.

I have a switch box (I’m not sure what the official term is at the moment) that allows me to go between TV, VCR (where the Atari 800 is hooked up to), NES, and CD-I depending on what I want to watch or play. During an earlier project I found the wires were so messed up (as TV wires tend to get) that I decided to move the thing to an easier to get to location, and then that got stalled. You can see it in the allegedly temporary spot so I could get to the back of the box and test things out. Then I didn’t have a chance to put it in a better spot. This week’s mini-project was to finally fix that.

Transformers Christmas Tree 2015

1 Comment

It’s time again to set up that green thing, put a bunch of colored lights and little balls on it, and put toy robots around it. It’s become a tradition to take the Transformers I have on the TV (where I put the Nativity set) and put them into a festive event around the tree. This year I thought I’d explain my little story. Just ignore Death Star Darth Vader. I just didn’t have anywhere else to put him. I did get a bit more space this year since at least one clutter-clearing project worked to my advantage. The TV tray is finally free of clutter and while that may change I can use it as a more stable tree display spot. This makes me happy.

Web Comic Organizing

Odd to put this logo on THIS site. However, fighting off the remnants of a cold this week meant I didn’t do much this week. However, I’ve let this project (and as a result this site) slip by for too long this year so I thought I’d get some more virtual clutter done. That makes this another short report.

More Virtual Clutter Cleaning

This week’s project didn’t go as well as I’d hoped, and I need to figure out why. I decided to go virtual this week and clean some unnecessary stuff from the computer’s hard drive, hoping to clean up space. Important pictures were burned to a CD I already have prepared for such things, I went through the downloads and various media files and got rid of what I didn’t need, but for some reason my hard drive is still really full. I need to figure out what I have on there that’s taking up all of that space. I did a reinstall in the last year or two (everything’s a blur these days) so I’m hoping some new virus didn’t show up. This is a mystery I need to figure out but my time is really cluttered lately and trying to organize that is a lot harder than opening floor space. Weak report this week but it’s all I have.

Another sick day

I only just realized that I didn’t post anything here this week and totally should. My clutter cleaning project hit a snag with a Crohn’s flareup. A minor one but I was still out of action and am just now recovering. So I’m sorry there was no post this week. NEXT week I have to do the next phase of my comic organizing project because there’s a particular series I have to find for my daily comic reviews over on the other site. So there should be a lot to talk about soon.

I’m as tired of missing these this year as you are, probably more. Although I have made some strides this year, I’ve had more important things to deal with, as you can see by looking at the January and February postings. It’s not been a good year. But let me make up for this skip with some articles to check out.
