"I Should Run, On The Double"

Riddle me this, Batman - what is worse than re-running one Alex-less episode of Modern Family?

"Is It Asking Too Much"

So, you may be asking (but probably not), what are my questions for Season 9 about Alex?  Glad you asked (or didn't).  I'm not ready to answer them yet (probably when we get to September I'll guess on a few) but here's at least some of them:

"Answer, Answer Me Do"

Season 9 officially starts on September 27th.  It will probably still be a few weeks before we find out if Alex has any serious kind of role in it.

I'll probably start speeding up the posting frequency again in the next week or so.

"Hot Summer Nights" (?)

I'm almost to the point where I'm going to just type random words every couple of weeks (or just type "Alex" repeatedly)  - that's how little there is going on right now:

Ariel was overlooked again for an Emmy (not at all a surprise given how little she had to do this past season).

Nothing new at all about Dog Years (please don't this be going virtually straight to video).

And. strangely enough, no word on the date of Modern Family's Season 9 opening night (September 20th or September 27th are the two most likely, but it is not out of the realm of possibility that it could get pushed backed to October).

Finally, on the re-run front, there are doubleheaders (9:00 and 10:00) the next two Wednesdays, with some rather all over the place choices (in terms of episode order).  "Weathering Heights" and "A Tale of Three Cities" (again?!?) this week, "Grab It!" and "Snow Ball" next week.

At least August is almost here - news should pick up once filming resumes then.   And maybe I'll finally get ambitious enough to write that post I hinted about a month ago.

"That Summer Day That I Recall"

No, this isn't that post I hinted at a couple of weeks ago - I'm still trying to get motivated to do that one.

"So Hello From The Other Side"

OK, I'm not really at/in any other side right now, but since that song randomly popped up on my playlist today1, I'd figured I'd use it for my yearly "it's June, there's no news but I wanted to let everyone know I'm still here" post.  So there's that.

I am starting to worry though about whether or not Dog Years will actually show up in a theater here any time soon, or even at all.  Since it made the film festival rounds a couple of months ago there's been no word whether or not it's going to be sent out nationally, and the Twitter account has been inactive for more than a month.

[EDIT - Hey! What do you know! My reverse psychology worked again! (Yeah, right.)  Mere minutes after I posted I found this article - apparently a small film distributor called A24 and DirecTV are co- distributing the movie in North America.  No details yet as to what they will do with it.]

As for Alex, the only thing I have is the next two weeks have re-runs with two of her stories - "Five Minutes" this week, then back to "A Stereotypical Day" next week.

I'll be back in a couple of weeks - I have something in mind but it's not a big deal.
1 Yes, I'll admit it - I have not one, but two Adele songs ("Rumour Has It" being the other, though I haven't played that one in years) on my iPod.  But in my defense I still have more than more than ten times as many Avril Lavigne songs on there.
