 Forgot to post this over here yesterday.. some thoughts on comics currently:

I'm reaching the end of my rope with DC books lately. DC 52 Future’s End is really pointless. Too many characters. And just so many books that are already struggling storywise are forced to put in some weird story “from the future” for an issue? And half of them were mad depressing as hell. It’s crazy how they've sucked the life out of their universe. Linewide outside of a very few books I enjoy, everything else I can’t stand. And even the ones I like (Superman/Wonder Woman for example) I can understand why others wouldn't. It's all hilarious in a sad way. (Yet i'm super excited for their TV/Movie/Animation ventures so it's a weird state for the DCU).

Now books I like and look forward to every month and think you should read:

Lazarus - Find this dystopian future situation quite interesting with families ruling the world and I’m fond of Forever Carlyle. Love the mystery unfolding for her about who she is and her place in the family.

Solar Man of the Atom - Father/Daughter space adventure! Of course it’s more complicated than that as the dad has basically laid a heavy burden on his daughter with what he’s done and he’s along for the ride as her ghost/power spirit annoyance. Love reading this. Might be my favorite monthly book right now.

The Wicked + The Divine - I’m still not completely clear on what’s going on in this book but gods reborn and being big popular sensations up to no good seems to be the gist of it. I love the art though oh so much and the main? storyline with Lucifer and Laura.

Year 5 of Let's pretend I actually watch shows and don't fall miserably behind on everything (but last year I actually did a remarkable job of seeing nearly every new show although 75% of them were cancelled. lol :( ) ( 2010 - 2011 - 2012 - 2013 )

Codes: BOLD (Excited for) ITALICS (Wishful Thinking)
SUNDAY

  • 730PM Bob's Burgers S5, FOX (Currently watching S3)

  • 8PM Once Upon a Time S4, ABC (Haven't seen past 1x06)

  • 830PM Brooklyn Nine-Nine S2, FOX (All caught up. Weird move to Sunday though.)

  • 10PM CSI S15, CBS (Legacy Show. The finale was uninspired.)

MONDAY

  • 8PM Gotham S1, FOX (Curious and nervous to see how the mythology gets interpreted.)

  • 9PM Sleepy Hollow S2, FOX (Haven't watched but plan to catch up shortly)

TUESDAY

  • 8PM NCIS S12, CBS (Legacy show. Revitalized with the Bishop addition. Needed some young blood.)

  • 8PM The Flash S1, CW (Not a fan of the suit but hopeful for the series. Can't wait.)

  • 9PM Marvel's Agents of SHIELD S2, ABC (Was an enjoyable show, can't think of an episode that I didn't care for. Maybe Ward's past?)

  • 9PM NCIS: New Orleans S1, CBS (Spinoff. Scott Bakula. Will give the first season a try.)

  • 9PM New Girl S4, FOX (The show may have hit its peak in S2. With Coach's return, the show feels spread thin with too many characters.)

  • 10PM Forever S1, ABC (Wasn't expecting to watch this show but the previews caught me. Seems like an immortal Sherlock Holmes?)

WEDNESDAY

  • 8PM Arrow S3, CW (Almost done with S1, will probably catch up before Thanksgiving?)

THURSDAY

  • 8PM Bones S10, FOX (This show is starting to get a bit of the whole lather, rinse & repeat repetitiveness to it. Still not fond of domestic Booth/Bones)

  • 9PM Reign S2, CW (This show puzzles me. I hated the pilot but gifs and posts on tumblr make me want to give it another chance. Maybe.)

  • 10PM Elementary S3, CBS (Still a solid show that more people should watch.)

  • 10PM How to Get Away With Murder S1, ABC (The damn tv preview is catchy as hell. I don't know if i want to try it or not.)

FRIDAY

  • 9PM Hawaii Five-0 S5, CBS (Legacy show. I was ready to give up last year but then it sucked me back in somehow.)

  • 10PM Constantine S1, NBC (Curious to see how this goes. Never read the comic or watched the movie. Will give it a chance though.)


MID-SEASON

  • Galavant S1, ABC (The preview online was hilarious. Hope the show is as fun as that.)

  • Agent Carter S1, ABC (I enjoyed the character in the films, will see how it goes on TV.)

  • Hart of Dixie S4, CW (Onto S2 in my catchup. Really liked Season 1, reminded me of oldschool WB shows.)

  • iZombie S1, CW (I never read the comic but I really like the premise. Could be fun.)

 Continuing my summer binge watch catch up plans, I’ve seen over 2 seasons of New Girl and am now halfway through Season 3, and after a healthy break of a few months I’ve picked back up Shameless to see the latest season and am halfway through that as well.
 
First, New Girl.
  • I think Winston is my favorite character now. Him and the whole cat thing, every episode I find myself enjoying his scenes the most. Nick had been my favorite but since coupling with Jess, he just isn’t the same funny character.
  • And Schmidt, I really had liked the twist of hooking up with Cece during Season 1 and getting serious about her but the way they broke that up in S2 & S3 has been more sad than funny and ever since they started doing flashbacks of Schmidt in his fat years, his damn chin looks huge all the time and is distracting me.
  • And Coach. I had really liked him in the pilot but now that he’s back, it just doesn’t feel right. There’s almost too many people now. I’ve noticed less Cece as a result.
Second Shameless.
  • There’s been less, depravity this season, which I’m thankful for, but also I really didn’t like the choices they had Fiona make. Sure she’s had bad taste in men, but she has for the most part been the responsible Gallagher for the most part, and for her to squander her best situation in years/ever so easily … it just didn’t feel true to the character. More like the show making sure that things didn’t get too good for the family and to bring it all back to hell.
  • This seemed to be a recurring theme, like Ian’s return, making choices that he wouldn’t seem to make to bring him back and most likely in even worse shape. And its these odd circumstances that I’m sure are going to pull Lip back away from his escape to college.
  • I think Vee and Kevin are my favorite characters, and the hilarity that is going on with the baby situation and subletting to Mickey and his Russian girls, the confrontation with Stan’s son - they are definitely carrying the lighter side of the show.

I've been horrible about keeping this journal up to date but I haven't really been doing any original posts on tumblr, mostly reblogging. I have been posting reviews of my first watches of films so that will probably make its way over here too but I'll try to do some more commentary in the future. Now some comments on the TV I've been catching up on this past month since the new stuff has mostly ended.
  • Marvel Agents of SHIELD - I’m still catching up on the show. I just finished 1.16 “End of the Beginning” and still liking the show but I think this is where Captain America 2 gets tied-in next and I haven’t seen that yet so might have to wait awhile to finish.
  • Hart of Dixie - Just finished Season 1. It is so funny how much this feels like old WB show. Even had an episode where a singer popped in to perform. I really liked everything about this show, helped me tolerate all the triangles going on lol. Reminded me of when I enjoyed Everwood.
  • Bob’s Burgers - Finished Season 2. Tumblr pushed me to finally watch it. This is such a good show. I think there’s only been one or two episodes that just were bad.
  • Shameless - Finished Season 3, anxious to start season 4 after hearing all the reactions from friends when it was airing. It’s hard to say how I feel about this show, I care about some of the characters but wow, horrible things happen a lot.

Also on my to-see list this summer but I’ve not started yet:
True Detective
Black Sails
Sleepy Hollow
Vikings
Orphan Black

It’s that time of year again. Porn Battle is starting back up and right now it’s prompt submission time.
I’ll be contributing prompts at least. I hope to find time to write a story or two as well.

Finally saw MIB3 this past week and how could you not come out of that film totally behind the Team OK ship? Yeah, it sort of flubs with the storyline of the first film and the love that K left behind, but 2 sort of showed that was a flawed relationship given how they dumped that to bring K back.
But that aside, Young Agent O and Young Agent K were so adorable.

 As I was going through my old fic tags to properly tag my [community profile] fandom_stocking drabble, I came to realize several things, one there's quite a few friends I've lost on here over the years, which is sad to think about, but on a lighter note. I was surprised to notice that Man of Steel's release didn't rejuvenate the 12days_of_clois  community. I remember how Superman Returns really sparked that place for awhile but I'm just guessing most of the people that were there have just moved on? It's a shame, can't say I've really been aware of Man of Steel fic in the same way.

Two Creative Goals for 2014: A Daily Drawble & Write 1k words a day. Originally I was going to do a chapter a day or 3k words a day but to be honest I don't know how long chapters would be and roughly it takes me 2 hours to get over 1k depending on the idea/progress I've made. I wanted to make the goal specific, a realistic length and to publicly announce it. I don't care if its original work,fic, song writing or even blogging/commentary on something I just want to write. And I just want to be able to draw decently. That would be nice. Practice makes perfect. So making an effort to do just that.

 The stockings went live earlier this week and I was really excited to find some great fic recs, a shipping graphic and a drabble in mine! Had to share the sweet story that was written so more eyes see it.

Can I have this dance? by [personal profile] navaan . It's DCU Dick/Babs, a bit of quiet domesticity. I miss those two, so this was a nice gift.

 I'm participating in Fandom Stocking this year. Here's mine.
There are tons of stockings hung so browse around and see where you feel you can contribute. I'm focused on the upcoming Faberry fandom week at the moment but will be spending the latter part of this month on filling some stockings if I can.
It's been forever since I've done something fandomy like this so I'm hoping it kickstarts me out of my writing funk/malaise I've been in.
