Brown is really good in the Sherlock Holmes movie thing (Enola Holmes, I think?). It's a fun flick and she's so different from her Eleven character that I appreciate her acting chops a lot more now....

If you get your way, though, there's nobody left but Hopper and Murray. :D And Eleven, who would probably kill them both anyway. :D

Oh wait, and Dustin. Yeah, he stays. And Steve's hair.

Borrowed the e-book with no wait/hold from the Philadelphia public library. I'm ready! Just finished another piece of fiction yesterday so I'll start in on this next.

I can get Triggerfish Twist right away. The Charm School has a two-week wait. Perdido Street Station has a 7-8 week wait.

I thought, since it was free, that it was only the garden area, but it really was a few full hours of fun for me. And I'm still not done with The Witness. It just got frustrating and I felt as if I'd...

Re: MoFo Book Club: July 2022

I kinda put this down about midway in. That "elegant writing" was starting to feel self-important, and the storyline was annoying me, for some reason. Partly, I tend to dislike how "Christians" are...

For fans of The Witness game, there's a free-to-play clever send-up called The Looker. I'm still in the main garden area, but I've laughed out loud too many times to count already. Check it out on...

Oddly, I like this season way better than the hot mess of season 3. Watch a recap, then dive into at least one episode of season 4. I do have some theories, and at least this season feels more like...

Re: Westworld: Season 4

(sigh) I'm still the only one watching this? Without spoilers, as we're now four episodes in, let me just say this: I find this show's ability to tell the story in a discombobulated, non-linear way...

I think I know why you're saying this, if you mean this because it's a prequel so we know how things ultimately end. But all prequels have this issue, and yet I don't typically let that bother me. If...

Re: The Rings of Power (Amazon Series)

I'm more optimistic with that trailer. And I'm more okay with them telling offshoot stories of their own making. But there is still caution. It looks absolutely beautiful, though. That's a start, but...

I am thinking the same thing. But I also know there is a fine line between elegant writing and self-absorbed "look at meee!" writing. He's skating on the right side so far. So far. (I'm about 21%...

The napkin thing seems to be universal. Drive-thrus are ridiculous these days. You're lucky to get a straw for your drink, let alone more than one napkin. And you always have to ask for a ketchup...

You can tell the Kindle readers versus the print readers: "I'm on page 56!" "I'm 7% done!" :)

Actually, that's about where I am: 7% through. A very odd book to start late at night while you're...
