- 🥳 Last Saturday was Luna’s 5yo birthday party
- 🛫 On Monday we woke up early, worked from home then headed out to the airport.
- 🌱 Tuesday, is field day.
- ✈️ After all day on the field, I get dropped off at the airport.
- 🛬 I arrived at midnight, slept about 3 hours.
- 🎂 Wednesday, was Luna’s birthday celebration at her pre-school. We had juice 🧃 and donuts 🍩.
- 📷 next up, downtown lunch with Luna, Marley, and Mom, street photography with Luna’s new camera (and mine until it died)
- 🤒 Late evening, Luna gets sick (sad trombone)
- 👨🏻⚕️💻 Thus, on Thursday and Friday I was busy working from home and being a nurse.
We are 5 episodes in already. Luna finds it somewhat scary, but almost anything and everything is scary for her. And still, she won’t stop watching and asking for one more episode.
Well, it’s been a week, for sure, well ever since last Saturday.
📺 TV shows watched
📺 Onimusha (2023) - ★★★★☆
Finished it this week, pretty cool but didn’t love it.
📺 BLUE EYE SAMURAI (2023) - ★★★★★
Only two episodes in and I am loving this show. There’s good stuff in here.
📺 Monarch: Legacy of Monsters (2023) - ★★★★★
I am a sucker for anything Godzilla-related so obviously I was going to watch this. Watched the first two episodes and I am excited to see where this is going.
🎮 Video games currently playing
🎮 Gunbrella (2023) - ★★★★★
Finished it and had lots of fun playing it.
I think I am about 60% completed on this one.
🎵 Music piques
I love a good fantasy story, like Lord of The Rings, The Wheel Of Time, etc. As long as is on visual media, like TV shows, movies, graphic novels, and even video games. But whenever I try to read (or listen to books on tape), I can’t get into them as much as I try or would love to. Not sure is maybe to a lack of imagination or attention span or just the fact that I am very visual. Or perhaps is the fact that many times these stories start slow? Compared to a thriller like The Terminal List series.
Currently, I am listening to The Sword of Kaigen: A Theonite War Story by M. L. Wang I am about 3 hours or so in and the first two were, well I felt like I was forcing myself to stick to it, until it finally got more interesting, to me. Apart from anything from Neil Gaiman’s, every fantasy book (or book on tape) that I start, I end up dropping or forgetting about.
Now, any of those fantasy books that I’ve ever tried and dropped, make them a motion picture show adaptation, and I’ll be all over them!
That being said, it is also a shame, because there are so many good stories out there that will never make it to any visual media.
Monarch: Legacy of Monsters gets a new trailer!
I am so excited, November 17th can’t come any sooner!
Exclusively on Apple TV+, obviously.
This Animated motion-picture show has been on my radar for a long while, I see it every time I open Max. Today I finally decided to give it a go. I have to say, it is quite something. It is savage, it is violent, and even cruel at times. There is no dialogue, everything is conveyed in “body’ language, eye emotes, grunts, and roars. The art is very comic-book-like, in fact, that’s how the show feels as if you were watching an animated comic-book.
Similar to Dragon Ball, My Adventures With Superman features a constant sense of escalation where Superman grows stronger with time and experience and gains new abilities, only to find those abilities tested by ever-stronger opponents. Though as Wyatt explained, as much as the show draws from Dragon Ball, that sense of escalation has always been a part of the Superman comics. The crime-fighting Superman of the early Golden Age stories is hardly the all-powerful defender of the DC Universe he's become.
My entire life, I have been a Superman fan, and ever since a teenager, a Dragon Ball Z fan. I am very eager to watch this and see what they do with this iteration of Superman.
📺 Anne Rice’s Mayfair Witches (2023) - ★★★★★
If the rest of the series is at least like the first episode, this will be a must watch.
In a post-apocalyptic future humans live in peace with androids in a domed city. However, a strange series of murders has intruded into bored inspector Re-l Mayer’s life.
watched the first episode and i’m kind of hooked
Found a new anime show to obsess over. Currently watching it on Crunchyroll.
