No Posts Makes Lopes A Dull Girl
I haven't posted recently because I wanted newcomers to the blog to see my movie before they caught a gander of anything else. Life has been pretty hectic, and yet static all the same. I've been running around doing errands (getting money and a smog check for my car registration, taking care of a sick kitty that went to the emergency room, and all the little things in between) and been absolutely stagnant creatively. I worked on some drawings, but need to go into school or Kinko's to scan them (and after drawing them, discovered I'd run out of paper...yeesh). In the interim, I've been making notes on a post I'd like to do about female characters - specifically protagonists - in animation. That'll get posted once I get a moment to breathe a bit.
I'm reading (and probably going to finish today) The Fabulous Clipjoint by Frederic Brown as a recommendation from the Kunz. It's a clean, easy read with a lot of neat language that harangues and pulls and plummets all at once - very good stuff. The crime is mildly interesting, but the characters are the real treat - complex, yet tidy in description and execution. This will be my Kindle read while I wait out the twenty (or thirty, or forty) minute smog check today. I gotta say, knowing what percentage of a book I've read doesn't compare to having good old-fashioned page numbers.
