Oops, lost track of time again.

We've been watching The Man in the High Castle all week. Highly recommended. The concept was neat, but what sold me was seeing the intro, since The Sound of Music is a childhood favorite of mine, and their use of Edelweiss made a strong impression on me. The Atlantic produced a short article on that, which is much smarter than my commentary would have been. (I also would've been less optimistic in my reading. :D)

Guess I have to read the book now.

We're convinced there's great potential in a spin-off involving certain shenanigans that star Frank and the antique shop dealer, whose name I've forgotten. I'd watch it.

We'll get back to our Wes Anderson binge while we're waiting.

I've been reading a lot to make up for last year's foot-dragging - currently Murakami's 1Q84, and before that I read both the Hunger Games and the Divergent trilogies, finally, after just about everybody else. Also, history books. And a fucking jury summons! That's good reading, right? I'm just about done typing italic tags, so I'll leave it there.

I set a word count goal for the year. There's an almost zero chance you're going to see anything I'm writing, so I'll spare you. It's a lot less satisfying than producing a story every week, though. Long goals are boring. And there's too much time for me to dwell on negativity.

I'm curious about your word goal.

(And I never made it past the first paragraph of The Hunger Games so at least you beat me to it. XD)

What did you think of the Divergent trilogy? My little sister is trying to get me to read it but I ~can't be bothered~ because I apparently won't touch anything that wasn't first passed down orally for 500 years in Anglo-Saxon. (But I did like most of Hunger Games, actually.)
