...Fellow Gingerologists... I Hereby Declare...

...THE SUMMER OF GINGER!!!
...now WHAT, you may be thinking, does The Summer of Ginger entail?

...well...

...here's the deal. As of late, I have been QUITE dissatisfied with the 'output' of this blog... I figure y'all are as well... SO...

Summer begins in full tomorrow (or today, depending upon where on the orb you reside)... the season has more or less 90 days in it... Ginger made 70+ feature films... see where this is headed? Hu REALLY needs to roll thru the GingerCatalog in toto, just... BECAUSE...

Roughly... a GingerFilm a day for viewing, which is always a great thing... ...but, additionally, whichever GingerFilm is chosen for a given day, its accompanying blog will get some love as well in the form of added pics and other stuff to 'update', until hopefully all GingerBlogs are in fair shape...

OK, well... what's in it for you, or me, you are probably saying... um... not sure, except, I'll be posting some stuff pretty much each day... most likely random musings from the film viewed the night before...

...SO... ...beginning tomorrow... I'll be choosing the first GingerFilm from the 'deck' of cards I created specifically for this event from old unused Rolodex cards (yeah, I spare NO expense, y'all... ...and actually, I was just surprised that Spell Check actually caught "Rolodex" at all...)  ...so we'll see what shakes out...

Stay Tuned, y'all...

KIG!
