I got to watch the CW’s Black Lightning last night and wow, was it way better than the trailers made it look. The trailers were kind of campy and not great looking FX-wise, and while the show could still use a bit of work on the costume design and FX, the writing itself and the characters were really excellent. I think this is gonna be a new must-watch.
Okay, guys, I read “Fire and Fury” so you don’t have to. It’s about what you’d expect: 300 pages of “Dear gawd, these people are so ridiculously stupid.”
I’m not sure what exactly it is about Mercedes Lackey’s Heralds of Valdemar books, but I’ve always enjoyed them. They’re not profound works of great literature or anything. They’re not bad at all, but they are a bit fluffy in places. I’m pretty sure they’re young adult books, although I can’t remember ever seeing them branded that way.
I don’t do New Year’s resolutions. A resolution is a thing you’re absolutely going to do and I mean, life is crazy. There’s no telling how things are going to shake out. It’s setting yourself up for failure. I do New Year’s goals. These are things I’m going to work on.
