Watch 50

A wave of sadness washed over me when I realized this would be my last watch. Amidst all the chaos and uncertainty that’s surrounded these past 50 days, it was comforting to know that no matter what, I had The Meg. This blog has helped my days feel structured and productive during a time when structure and productivity was hard to come by. And I’ll always be grateful for that.

Also, I’ve officially changed my instagram bio to “World’s leading authority on The Meg (2018)”

Once it’s safe to have a large gathering I’m going to do one final (off the record) watch with my friends. Those who were mentioned previously on this blog will receive custom participation t-shirts. And if not me, then somebody will wear the shark onesie I bought off Ebay that didn’t get here in time for the final watch. It. Will. Not. Go. To. Waste.

Photos will be posted here and on instagram (@poguemarch).

Thanks to Kat, Ashley, Alyssa, Kelsey, and my family for joining me on some of the watches. And to my coworkers Gregg and Melissa, who supported and cheered me on as someone might cheer for a Bull Rider (safely from a distance).

A special thanks goes to director Jon Turteltaub for reaching out and sharing his thoughts on this endeavor. That was such an unexpected surprise and I am so grateful for the experience.

See you next time!
