Things have been hectic lately, and none of it has to do with creative things. ^_- Thanksgiving and Hanukkah were literally back to back this year, eating up any free time I might have for the computer. Now that the Lights Fez is coming to a close in a few, I have Christmas to gear up for [my spouse is not kosher], which means another few weeks of going into the bank, then coming home in time to eat, shop, or holiday visit. I did go back to the gym today for the first time in a week. 0_0 I felt so guilty about not going, and of course I think I gained all my weight back between the booze and fried food. I’ll get back to the business of things the week of December 20. I’ll be home with free time then, and will spend it at the computer; there’s royalties to be paid that week, and loose ends to tie up with the German publisher.
Writing has been impossible these days. I’ve touched up a few scenes on some project notes while at work, but again—it’s been near impossible to sit down and actually “write” anything. I’ve not tweeted much either, but I try to check in over there and at Facebook every now and then.
Last night’s ep of Walking Dead was a disappointment. >_< So far the series is working for me, but I’m officially sick of the extra character development that Shane is getting. He never worked as a character in the books – which is why he died early. Come on Frank, really? While I did enjoy the teaser scene leading into the ep, and I like the whole ‘this is your brain on zombie-virus’ scene, overall the whole episode bored me. I did nearly loose my shit when it looked like they might kill off Andrea. Next to Michonne – she’s my favorite character. Speaking of which—Michonne better show up next season! Terrier’s season ender was cool. It does leave me hanging though—they better not cancel that show, I mean it. Burn Notice is getting back to its old ways, which is always cool for me. For awhile there, like Sons of Anarchy—it started losing my interest. I did manage to catch the finale of Sons, and I think it tied up nicely. Agent Stahl got what she deserved; it’s very rare that I like a female character that’s a total jackass, but man—it was cool watching her get down to business. She was a heartless machine, until it came time to die. Bang. Karma.
I got a sneak peak at Sundance Channels ‘Girls who Like Boys who Like Boys‘. I’m tried to like it, I did. I loved my bro and was a big part of his life–which put me right smack dab in the middle of a social life filled with gay men–and this ep just seemed…unrealistic? Apparently, reality shows like this are only interesting when everyone involved is white collar, a creative type, or earns six figures. There’s no real people here, just cosmetic drama. Have times changed that much since the 90’s? Maybe so…Maybe it will grow on me and I’ll feel compelled to watch– like Real Housewives of New Jersey, Jersey Shore, Pawn Stars, and car accidents I pass by on major highways.
Last night’s game was excellent. I was rooting for the Ravens, and even though they lost— Steelers played a good game, despite Mcfadden fouling every ten minutes. WTF dude, forget the rules or what? Little tot Flacco did an amazing fake in the first half of the game that was impressive—but there was no coming back once Polamalu sacked him. The Steelers smelled the end of the game and got serious. Boo.
Been trying to keep up with comics – Damian’s Robin heading the Titans? The inaugural scene was quite entertaining; as always though, Rose’s Ravager is set up to be the hot head-jerk and Cassandra Sandsmark’s Wonder Girl is suddenly a newly developed example of maturity. When did Cassandra turn into Saint Donna of Troy? =_=;
