What Kind of Year Has It Been?

Posted in Uncategorized on December 31, 2011 by Bronzethumb

So. 2011.

I graduated university, moved out, went overseas, hit a convention, sold a story, got a part-time job, got fired from a part-time job, and started drinking scotch and black coffee (not together, mind).

Last year seemed like it was marked out by things coming to an end. This one was all about change. “Tumultuous” is the word I keep using. There’s almost nothing in my life right now that’s the same as it was twelve months ago. And for all the things that depressed me and made me feel like crap, it’s been good change. It’s been a good year.

I’m hoping this is part of a pattern. The old stuff comes to an end. Everything changes. And then everything settles into new stuff. So that’s why I’m not making New Year’s Resolutions, beyond the things I’ve been resolved to do since I had the vaguest semblance of self-awareness. Instead, I think 2012 is going to be about finding equilibrium. Finding a good groove and settling into it.

Happy New Year.

Posted in Lost in Retrospect with tags , , on July 24, 2010 by Bronzethumb

The beginning of a long, long, long run of weak Kate episodes, and not even a few brilliant dramatic scenes and some exploration of the Hatch can keep this one out of the negative column.

And at Critical Myth, there’s “Legacies and Letdowns”, where the crew talk about The Prisoner, Haven, Burn Notice, True Blood, Mad Men and Being Human.

Have a listen, and I hope you enjoy.

Lost in Retrospect: The Other 48 Days

Posted in Lost in Retrospect with tags , , on July 18, 2010 by Bronzethumb

This was an interesting episode, a mix of the new and interesting with the old and redundant, fantastic characters and less-than-stellar ones, and ultimately gets on the must-see list because of its important mythological developments.
