    Rothfuss XIV: The Slow Regard of Luna Lovegood

    At the reading I attended when the second book was released he said that the whole trilogy had become about the framing story, and that at the end of the framing story, the real story would be ready to start. Of course he's zigged and zagged a lot more since then. I would have video of this but he asked everyone to turn off video cameras because he re-uses jokes and schtick and he doesn't want future readings ruined. In hindsight, I wish I'd kept rolling.

    Oh No

    Dude, some more warning in the title would have been good. Some of us just ate.

    Oscar News: Popular Film Category

    Slowly evolving into the Kids' Choice Awards. I think the Razzies have more integrity than the Oscars.

    July '18 Reading - What We Read in the Shadows

    I much prefer the stick figure cartoon version of Ulysses called "Ulysses For Dummies"

    July '18 Reading - What We Read in the Shadows

    I am reading the new Alex Verus novel. These books are short, but at least he cranks out one a year on a pretty regular schedule.

    ...make your own discovery. *cough*

    Goodkind 55: Back in the Dick Life Again

    I find that it's best to not act like a dick and just politely suggest some other authors they should try. I think Harry Potter is utter garbage, but it's because I've read hundreds of much better books. It's hard to make people dislike something just because you say so...it's better to help them make their own discoveries without tearing them down in the process.

    Rothfuss XIV: The Slow Regard of Luna Lovegood

    The amazon prime ads all have Luna Lovegood toys/figures in them. I was going to make a joke that Rothfuss needs a Funko Pop of himself, but in someways, he *is* a Funko Pop.

    June '18 Reading - Something something witty.

    Yeah, I only learned about his house construction woes during the AMA and frankly it explained a lot! Brief Cases is worth it if you haven't read the other stories. I was so Dresden starved that I went on a quest to get all of the anthologies that had Dresden short stories, and so I had read everything in Brief Cases except the new one.

    June '18 Reading - Something something witty.

    Picked up the new Jim Butcher Dresden short story collection Brief Cases. Unlike Side Jobs, where I hadn't read most of the stories, only the new story Zoo Day was actually new to me this time around. A couple of the stories were 7 or 8 years old. It was a little disappointing overall to be honest. At least Jim has his house situation finally resolved and he can get back to work.

    What Artists Do You Truly Regret Never Getting To See?

    The one that burns me most is that I could have seen Buddy Miles, but decided not to go because the person going with me bailed at the last minute. He died a couple months later.
  12. I'm trying to figure out how the show-changes can reconcile with the book version of the Behemoth plot.

    SOLO: A Spoiler Story (contains spoilers)

    Solo was fun, only slightly pretentious in parts, and was well cast and tightly plotted. It didn't shit on established characters and had a good balance of humor and thrills. It's actually a little sad that the movie to be hit by the opening weekend fan boycott was this one. Once the opening weekend numbers sag and the word gets out that the movie is flopping, it always seems to snowball. It's a shame, it's a fine movie, maybe fluffier than Rogue One, but Harrison Ford's coaching of the lead seems to have helped. Emilia Clarke was as bland as I expected. I wasn't horribly surprised by the Maul appearance. I remembered that he had become a crime lord in the clone wars cartoon. I wonder if they will re-hash his appearances in Rebels with the inevitable Obi Wan movie at all.

    I haven't been able to think about Sherlock the same way since watching that "Sherlock Is Garbage" video on YouTube. The author of that video put into (many) words the things I couldn't quite describe that made me uneasy about the show the more I watched it. He also nails what has bothered me about Dr. Who since Moffat took over.
