THE MANDALORIAN continues with the Not Sucking.

I just pretty much took the day off after the dentist, but episode 2 of THE MANDALORIAN dropped, so I watched it. It was good! Observations, in no particular order:

  • I like how Jawas are just pretty much utter sh*ts in this show. Not even villains; just really, really kick-worthy.
  • I hope they never take off this guy’s helmet. He’s great even without it.
  • Yeah, binge-watching is overrated. The dropping of episodes in a steady drip and not a flood? It’s working, here.
  • The background music’s pretty good.
  • And, not to make this completely unalloyed fanboy-ism: as my wife noted, this dude has a bad habit of dragging his bounties with him, even when it would be hideously inappropriate.

All in all, you just might like this.

Today is a bye day for NaNoWriMo.

Dentist appointment this morning: spent a couple of hours getting a new temporary crown. The anesthesia is now wearing off, which is fun. I’m not in pain, exactly: but I feel scraped. I got takeout coming and I’m gonna eat it and I’m going to take things easy for the rest of the day.

There IS a God in Israel: John M. Ford will be coming back into print.

The linked article below is to Slate, but I will break a minor rule and say that you should read the Slate article anyway. It is not a very Slatish article, and the person who wrote it apparently at least help start the process of getting John M. Ford’s books back into print, so credit where credit’s due. I will forgive a lot from the person who got us access to Ford’s unfinished works, up to and including unarmed bank robbery.

Via @GenevieveCogman, who has a book out! Well, OK, The Secret Chapter is out in England. Here we have to wait until January.

The Vaesen Nordic Horror Roleplaying Kickstarter.

Vaesen is from the same guy who did Tales From The Loop. Nordic Gothic horror roleplaying. Looks real fun, in that horror RPG kind of way.

NaNoWriMo, 11/14/2019: 1805/28170.

Days like this are why I have a buffer: not quite my daily number, but I had some leeway. I may also have to cut some of today’s out, as it’s feeling like it drags a little. Snippet here.

The absolutely less frightening new SONIC THE HEDGEHOG trailer.

This new SONIC THE HEDGEHOG look is such an improvement that it makes you wonder what in God’s name they were thinking the first time.

Irresponsible Rumor Alert: Casey & Andy movie adaption to come to big screen?

Mayyyyyyyyybe probably not, but I’m always up for a certain amount of irresponsible rumor-mongering.

According to Deadline, Lord Miller’s Oscar-winning filmmakers Phil Lord and Chris Miller (Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse) are developing an original idea from The Martian and Artemis author Andy Weir in addition to the graphic novel Cheshire Crossing.

Plot details are being kept under wraps, but the untitled project has been described as another problem-solving science fiction adventure.
