It’s been a little quiet around here… Too quiet, I know. But I’ve been hunting
wabbits edits, revising my novel. So that’s coming along.
Happily, my blogging hiatus is nearly over, though; I have a slew of posts planned, and a wee bit of “free” time opening up soon, because (drum roll) the Star Trek Animated Series Re-Watch has just concluded! It’s been a hell of a ride*, and fortunately the series ended on a high note with “The Counter-Clock Incident.” You can read our reflections on the entire series here, and of course, check out all our reviews of the cartoon and the original series over at The Viewscreen.
“What’s next?” you might ask. I’ll pretend you did, anyway. Torie and I are planning to continue our Star Trek re-watch with the films, probably beginning in September. In the meantime, we’ll have a few open discussion threads running on the site and we’re hosting virtual viewing parties for the movies so we can share the delights and pain of the even and odd installments, respectively. So let us know if you’d like to join us for Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan on Saturday, August 27 at 2 p.m.
It hasn’t been all work and no play, even if it often feels that way. I finally started The Legend of Zelda: The Ocarina of Time (on the Wii)–not much progress yet, but it’s fun–and have been working my way through Mad Men and Skins (UK) and various other shows whenever I can justify the downtime. I’ve also been reading great books, most recently The Demon’s Surrender by Sarah Rees Brennan, The Curse of the Wendigo by Rick Yancey and The Magicians by Lev Grossman (finally!).
So what have you been up to while I’ve been gone? Have any good television or book recommendations?
*That could really mean anything, right? Take it however you like.
