Transcribing Season 4- How are we going?

Hi everyone! I hope you are all staying well.
I need to review how we are all going with Season 4 transcripts. Transcripts help me to get blog posts written more quickly and are a HUUUUUGE help.


I thank everyone who has been contributing to writing SMK transcripts. This walk wouldn’t be happening without you! thankyou2


I can’t promise the walk is going to continue on consistently now till the end of Season 4, but I can tell you I have more blog post writing time, and covering episodes in less detail now means I can increase my speed in writing. Therefore, I need to check in with how people are progressing so transcripts are ready to go. So far, I’m nearing the end of writing Photo Finish, and it looks like  next 4 episodes are all transcribed, so things are looking really good!

I’d like to check in with how everyone is going transcribing episodes beyond Any Number Can Play –  Sometimes life happens and we can’t get done what we thought we could. That’s okay. If this is you – don’t worry just let us know and someone else can maybe step in and help out. No pressure – SMK is for fun!

I’ll be slowly checking in with each of you who has volunteered, individually and via email, to see how you are going.. Or feel free to respond here if you like.

[I gotta use this meme again, because well.. he looks so good!]

Announcement–The Walk continues: Season 4, Episode 6: Night Crawler starts 1 December 2019!

Hi Everyone!

Get Ready – December 1st, 2019 the walk through Night Crawler is happening!!!

After such a long hiatus I hope that we can all reconnect here together! Who will be joining us in real time as we walk through Night Crawler together hmm? If you are out there please say hi!!

This blog is moving to an ‘episode event’ format. The walk through Night Crawler will commence 1st December 2019. We may continue with Night Crawler into January 2020. I don’t know when the next episode ‘Billy’s Lost Weekend’ will commence, it may or may not be straight after – I’ll need to see how I go.. I’ll keep you updated!

I’m happy to go with the flow and just enjoy with you all – no schedule to follow. Just fun! So, we’ll see how we go… I think some episodes or scenes can stimulate more discussion than others – so I like to keep the walking pace adaptable..

Real life demands mean we’ll continue with this ‘event’ format for the foreseeable future.  I am committed to walking through every smk episode! In between walks through new episodes, feel free to explore previous episodes as the conversation never really ends it just keeps on going! Smile 

I relish any time I can get to indulge my love of this show and engage with you all along the way, and am forever grateful to you wonderful people who stop by here and share their love for this fabulous little 80’s show that aired just a few years with us all. Thanks everyone! JWWM wouldn’t be here if not for you!!!! thankyou2

See you back here on December 1st!

Hey JWWM followers!! As a newer follower of JWWM, I think it would be really fun to connect with those of you who have been part of the walk for years and also engage newer folks like me who didn’t come by JWWM until later on. I had an idea about something while we “just wait with Iwsod” , and threw this idea out to her. She suggested I add a comment to the blog to see how much interest we may have in this approach.

So…would any of you be interested in simultaneously and as collectively as possible going on a re-walk through an episode’s posts (or multiple episodes)? I’ve been going through a few throughout the last several weeks while I watched through the series in revised order (which is fabulous, and thanks to all who added to making it). But I watched it so fast I wasn’t able to keep up the same pace with JWWM and would love to go back to some episodes to kinda simmer on them some more. We could collectively decide on maybe an episode a week?…Watch it if possible, and go back through all the posts/comments for that episode, adding comments as we go through it that week, if so inclined? It has been really awesome to think through and appreciate everyone’s viewpoints on those eps I have binge-commented on recently, and would love to find a way to keep our “walk”ing legs active before we get back to Nightcrawler…

Anyhoo, what are your thoughts? Please share your thoughts by replying to this comment if you would like to re-visit maybe an episode a week or so, and if you have any suggestions for an episode or groupings of episodes or something….

Looking forward to hearing from you!!!

 

  • Nancy | November 5, 2018 at 1:16 pmBack in early September, after Gilby57 posted that she was in S1 going through the episodes, I’ve been doing the same, albeit slowly as RL permits. Like you, I am using the brilliant revised order, making comments along the way. Next for me is “I am not now, nor have I …”That being said, count me in, you have a great idea. An episode per week sounds incredibly ambitious as we are headed into Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year holidays. An episode each month perhaps?

     

    • iwsod | November 5, 2018 at 6:59 pm would you guys like me to publish a little post about this – so you have a post to comment on and discuss plans?
      I can do a super quick post and leave you guys to organise yourselves if you like.. just let me know. [If you are happy just to keep using this post that’s cool too]
      Great idea Amandarambler – and hiya Nancy – I’m so glad you are commenting along the way

       

      • Amandarambler | November 5, 2018 at 10:36 pmYay!!!!! So happy to hear from everyone!! Iwsod, whatever is the easiest way for you for this discussion to continue sounds great to me!Also, to everyone, I’m loving your thoughts and excited to get the ball rolling to form a plan! I’m thinking we could select episodes at random, not necessarily have to do back to back episodes in order – maybe skip around some, maybe highlight a couple per season or select eps that have a general theme – favorites, non-favorites, ALCE around Christmas?, excessive dimple or Duffy sightings, etc. (Not saying we would do ALL that I just suggested, but throwing out grouped ideas…”noodles” to work with, to quote Quidd…

         

  • Cindy Davis | November 5, 2018 at 2:17 pmHey I am in, I might be able to convince Clagjanet to run through it again.  
  • Gilby57 | November 5, 2018 at 8:13 pm |Great Idea! But as mentioned the Holidaze are coming so maybe we could start with an Episode every 2 weeks? And then when the January Blahs set in we could do an Episode a week. Just a suggestion. Not sure how to phrase this? Gilby57 is a He, Yes that is Me. 
  • sara | November 5, 2018 at 11:28 pmI’m in. The most I’ve been able to do these days is read and ‘like’ but I’m on board.  
  • clagjanet | November 6, 2018 at 1:48 amI’m in! 
  • jule | November 6, 2018 at 2:53 am
    Sounds like a lovely idea! I may not be able to comment much but I will definitely follow with glee!

    Discuss away – who wants to be involved.. and how you’d like to go about it. [real life means I will likely only be able to participate sporadically!] I’ll leave it in your hands guys! Iwsod.
