I like to write. And what I like most about writing is characterization. I have recently — bizarrely — become completely obsessed with the characters from the movie Thor, especially Loki. Imagine my delight to find there are others out there similarly intrigued! And as I watched Thor for, oh, around the 10th time in a span of 2-3 weeks and decided I’d like to watch it while taking notes (!), I thought, well, it would be fun to share those notes. Now, mind you, I don’t think any of my friends have seen Thor even once, much less approaching a dozen. So who am I to share it with? And suddenly a blog seemed like a good idea. I hope fellow Thor enthusiasts will find this and enjoy it and hopefully leave some comments (PG only, please). I will also hopefully getting around to posting links to favorite interviews and such.
I didn’t want to name this blog after Loki, or Thor — who after all already have their own Facebook pages and such! — because although I know it doesn’t seem so, ultimately this isn’t really about those characters, per se. It’s about characters and characterization more broadly. Eventually, maybe, I’ll be onto a new character obsession and that will go here too. Then again, maybe not. I’m not bored watching Thor yet.
