I haven't really been in the mindset of blogging. Makes me feel bad to neglect this thing after all the ridiculous nonsense I've posted before.
I continue to have credit card misadventures. The less said about them, the better. I think I have a way around the problem, but the solution has been imperfect so I continue to explore my options.
I've started "The Shadow of What was Lost" by James Islington. Interesting world and magic system. I'm engaged in the story thus far.
Re-watched "The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies". It's got some video-game-like fun, but it's appalling what savage abuse they did to Tolkien's story.
With California's drought continuing to be crazy, I'm trying to remember all those tricks from my childhood during the last big drought. Not fun. Time for a rain dance.
Started watching "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." again after missing a few eps. The show's starting to hit a rut, but I do like elements of it. Go Inhumans!
I've fallen out of the habit of watching "Arrow" and "The Flash". Caught some eps this week. It's nice to see little has changed. They're still entertaining trash. Can't say the same for "Gotham", but that's mainly 'cause I think I can't get my head around the heavy tweaks to the Batman mythology in the show. I don't think there needs to be a "Batman as a tween-ager" show. Ever.
