My plans tonight… fighting off my cats attempts to shuffle my puzzle pieces while watching Wes Andersons great film The Grand Budapest
Tonight’s double feature is Alien Versus Predator and its sequel AvP:Requim. It was on my mind to watch these as a certain Versus ( well just the V really ) has been deviding the Internet. Figured I’d revisit to check my memory of these. They’re … Continue reading Yes. I’m watching these on purpose
Enjoy your earworm for today!
Never thought I’d see the live action day….
Kidding. I’m going Hollywood style and doing a soft reboot 🤗 My take on the Hollywood has always been at a distance, often movies that I have seen but not too much “ruined my childhood” reactions. Until that Ghostbusters trailer… I’m not saying I won’t like it, … Continue reading Let’s reboot this blog!
Currently occupying much of my time reading Isaac Asimov’s Foundation book series in a sort of book club. Well, since it’s just me and one other person it’s more of a book duel. This series has been some of the best science fiction I’ve ever … Continue reading Built on a solid Foundation
I love the martian. Not the bipedal green one, well maybe the manhunting one, but the Andy Wier book The Martian.
So I recently picked up the novel to read for the first time. I love a book I have not read. That’s because it was recommended highly and I went the audiobook route. A really well done one, with the narrator doing different inflections and voices ( while not going comical ).
Then news came that Ridley Scott was making a movie, starring Matt Damon as the martian himself, Mark Watney. I saw it opening day and loved it! Also they gave me a Ares III mission patch. So I am basically done my astronaut training and am ready to get my ass to Mars.
So… long story short I am reading the book now. On sale at Walmart and only now have I decided to physically read it. So far I am still loving something so familiar. Will let you know what I choose as my favourtie medium. So far the lack of character acting hurts the sections taking place on Earth. It’s just not written as well as Watney’s log entries. I would consider petitioning for a digital version that was ONLY the log entries might be interesting for rereads. For just his PoV.
K, I am going back to read it and will give a follow up later. DFTBA
