Amazon’s trying to make ‘Prime Day’ a thing again.

More power to them and everything, but I don’t think that I’ve ever actually bought anything on ‘Prime Day.’ Usually I go look, and discover that it’s all mostly junk that I don’t particularly want and/or need, at a discount that’s fairly meh anyway. I feel that this is not really compatible with Amazon’s apparent desire to make July 15th an international holiday. Maybe they’re just humoring Jeff Bezos? Because this has all the hallmarks of an operation that is put on solely because the boss insisted.

But don’t mind me. Prime Day away! …Hey, look: neo-hipster sarcasm and too-cool-for-this-stuff is all very well, but referral fees are referral fees.

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.
