I loved Pitch Black and all the Riddick back story and lore, but I loved the Necromongers the most. And the lack of Necros in this story greatly dissapoints me. The story that should continue after Chronicles seems obvious to me, and yet they’re trying to recreate Pitch Black instead.
A little unedited verbal essay where I show off my nerditude on Pi, what I love about Star Wars, and where I unbox (gasp!) the special edition figure of a Colonial Marine fighting an Alien in a Powerloader. Fun!
After a mostly comic book based summer, and the worst low period in box office history in four years, I’m ready for the new season to start! Already seen Resident Evil: Retribution, it was an “ok” start. So here’s what I’m looking forward to:
Looper – The first original science fiction we’ve had worth seeing in a looooong time!
Paranormal Activity 4 – Probably won’t get a resolution, but looks better then the last “in the 80’s” attempt, bleh.
Silent Hill: Revelation
This Must Be the Place
Killing Them Softly
Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning – Jean-Claude Van Damme, Dolph Lundgren, SIGN ME UP!
Years ago I was accepted into a creative writing magnet high school. I enjoyed every second of it, felt like I learned a lot, but mostly walked away thinking it’d never be worth publishing because writing is so hard to make a successful full time job.
Flash forward to now and I have dozens of manuscripts, outlines, and character maps laid out that are only collecting dust. Then the other day I pulled one out that is 10 years old and just started typing.
It’s a fantasy epic that has half a dozen main characters, languages, cultures and a few sub plots to supplement the big picture. In two days I’ve written 5000 words and edited 4000 of them. Apparently my worries of picking back up the creative spark were unfounded. I wanted my first officially finished book to be a science fiction, but this one is coming out a little quicker then I expected so I’m not going to complain.
So in addition to sewing, burlesque, online sales, and pug care-giving, I am now writing again to hopefully publish. *raises glass* Here’s to motivation and preservation!
PROMETHEUS- I’m really getting worried people. How can so many bad reviews still have such a high rating? I’m so nervous overthis, I feel like I’m going to throw up. I don’t think I can take 2 more days of waiting. http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/prometheus_2012/
Went to an estate sale today of a Hollywood illustrator and his copy writter wife. The majority of the work was from between the 50s to early 70s, when he started illustrating National Lampoon’s Norman Rockwell style spoof covers. I grabbed all the ORIGINAL artwork I could afford, which wasn’t much, but SUPER COOL.
