Ryan asked me to put up this note for him, apologizing that he’s going to miss a week on this blog. He’s busy on a shoot. I think he said he was going to recreate a scene from Silence of the Lambs where the killer is trying on some clothes in front of a full-length mirror. I think that’s what he said, though I could be mistaken.
My shaky memory aside, Ryan will be back here next week in his regularly scheduled slot, keeping us updated on the machinations of getting critical thinking onto television. Some of us slack and do it from the comfort of our Aeron chairs with endless mochas at our elbow, but guys like Ryan actually have to get out into the real world and do the physical labor and artistic gymnastics that translate our musings into the media that the real world consumes.
So go get ‘em, Ryan, and we’ll see you back here next week.
