A bunch of half ideas for a Friday
- There is a dead raccoon out on Route 16, just past the intersection with Highway 2, and there is a dead squirrel at the end off the block going towards Broadway. Nothing much else to say about either, other than I wonder how many places that set of specific place location descriptions could fit.
- Caught up with the previous season of Gotham and you really do have to enjoy how much fun the actors, writers, and even the art directors are having with this show. The goal of the show seems to be show how this city stuck in some deranged 1980s meets 1930s time period not only makes sense for where Batman would be from, but would welcome him as a protector. I lost count the number of times the main police precinct has been assaulted, this season. As we used to say on the podcast, this show is a good kind of crazy. Hope they don’t get reined in.
- Finished up Cara Te Ipsum, a long running web comic that itself just finished its run. I think there is a longer post about it, but for a web comic that I started reading daily, supported through 5 Kickstarters, and have both liked and have been frustrated by it had an interesting ending. Any work that sticks with me enough to be frustrating is usually doing something right.
- I subscribe to Lightspeed and Clarkesworld, both are monthly science fiction and fantasy literary magazines, and got way behind on both, been catching up and reading a lot of short stories of late. I do wonder how the song is surpassing the album as the default unit of music, while the novel is clearly dominant over the short story; in genre or not, interesting enough; while long form television ascendant for awhile, I feel like it might be ready for movies to make a run at.
