The Carnival Row teaser trailer.

Victorian faeriepunk? You have my attention, Carnival Row:

Will there be brawling? I feel that there should be brawling. And perhaps a troll or two. And maybe some elixirs — still, I’m sure that Amazon knows its business best. Coming out August 30th whether it does, or not.

Obligatory Holiday Shilling, Part One: Amazon!

Have you done your Christmas shopping yet?  Well, you still have almost two weeks!  And why not do your shopping via Amazon?  Remember: click that link on my (or someone else’s, of course) site to generate that sweet, sweet, sweet Amazon Associate referral cash!  Every little bit helps.

It’s Cyber Monday!

So, I dunno, buy stuff via this link.  Or, if you see other people with an Amazon link up and they look worse off than me (roughly 99.74% of the planet, if I did the calculations correctly), buy stuff via them.  I’m cheerfully mercenary, but I’m not awful.

Bunch of Netflix/Amazon series I *could* be watching.

Black Mirror, Altered Carbon, Disenchantment, Dragon Prince, Black Lightning, the Marvelous Mrs. Maisel*, Electric Dreams… anybody got an opinion?  Or an alternative suggestion? Obviously, I like the SF genre; but if something is really, really good (and also funny) I’ll think about something more mainstream.  Note: everything on here I can watch without subscribing to anything, so I’m not all that interested in spending more money or anything.

Thoughts?

*…What?  I heard it was good.

The new ‘Jack Ryan’ Superbowl ad.

I keep looking at this, and scratching my head.

It doesn’t look like it’s bad, exactly. The actor doesn’t not look like Jack Ryan, or at least he looks like what Jack Ryan could possibly look like.  I’m fine with that.

Amazon ends double-paywalled Anime Strike service.

It’s all Amazon Prime now. Come, I will conceal nothing from you: I watch very little anime.  My gaming group will occasionally watch some in lieu of a game if players can’t make a session, which is why I’m getting caught up again on Hayao Miyazaki. But I don’t have time to watch all the good stuff in that genre, either. However, I know that some of my readers would probably like to hear that they can now get Anime Strike’s library free with their Prime membership, so… there you go.
