Howdy folks. I’m back again, so here we go.
Well, what can I say about this last week? Let me think… hrm. Well as usual I read some books. Only 6 this time, I’m attempting to slow down a bit after that year of gluttonous reading I did. At least I’m still finding things that I’m interested in reading after all that. Since I added quite a number of authors to the list of people I like reading it has helped. However even then I still have to find others to read. No matter how quickly someone can put out a book I still read faster than anyone, or any 20 can produce. And that’s if I’m not being too picky.
Anyway, the book is coming along smoothly. Already 18 chapters written, and I’m in the middle of the 19th. I expect something like 30 chapters by the end, depending on the length of each, so I’m better than half way done with the first draft. I’ll probably be looking for input from Samantha soon enough, though I should wait until she isn’t so busy. We’ve both jobs, and it’s been rather hectic for both of us recently. So we’ll see.
Anyway, we watched a movie this weekend. Oh dear, what a movie it was. First I’ll say it was better shot than some of the other movies we’ve watched recently. A 1982 movie, and it looks wonderful. I think I just have a love for films of this era, at least well shot ones, so there’s that. But that doesn’t tell you anything, so here’s the title. Sorceress…. oh man. I don’t even know why it’s called that, it’s about twin warrior women. Lots of topless shots, so if you’re in to that sort of thing, or you can ignore it, there’s that. The writing is off the wall, and the acting, especially the main villain is…. well, unique. His delivery reminded me of Norm Macdonald, so not especially threatening even when he’s suppose to be. Maybe it’s just the company I keep when watching these “B” movies that I get enjoyment out of them, so keep that in mind. MST3K this, meaning watching with a group of people not afraid to have fun. Don’t take anything seriously, because really you can’t, it’s dumb. But in my mind an enjoyable way. I think we’ll be quoting this movie for awhile. It’s Vital.
We also watched a few different anime, or at least their first episodes. I don’t think anything grabbed our attention, but there were a few lines that were amusing. I’m guessing we won’t go back to finish any of them. We might just be burnt out, it happens from time to time. I will say I went back and watched an anime called Outbreak Company from an earlier season, and thought it was amusing. Otaku in another world trying to proselytize otaku culture to a fantasy world. Silly, though as with such shows a little ecchi. Meh, it was something stupid to have on while I did other things, and it make me chuckle a few times. The sports episode was especially amusing.
Well, I think that’s it for this time. I hope you all have an enjoyable week.
