As I mentioned last night, I watched Cosmos. I felt like it spent too much time trying to wow us with visual effects, and not enough on text. More fluff than content. I hate how that is the modern model.
I know everyone is going wild for it -- and I'm glad it exists. But I was disappointed.
Plus it had the unusual effect on me of making me feel small and unimportant -- which I don't think was the intended message.
I wonder if the old Cosmos is still available? I loved that show.
I don't know if I'll make it through the day before some teaser headline or another gives away the ending of True Detective. I don't need much of a hint, because my brain just works that way.
And it seems to be working that way even more since I've been writing. Both Linda and I are figuring out TV plots way more often and way sooner than before.
Speaking of True Detective. I noticed that many copies of The King in Yellow are available on ebooks. (I'm assuming it is legal domain now.) I remember picking this book up 40 years ago and thinking it was a little too gothic and old-fashioned for my taste at the time.
Weird it should become a best-seller after all these years...
Went to see Frozen. I have to admit, I kind of squirmed at how "cute" it was. I mean, I really didn't want to roll my eyes, but couldn't help it.
But I don't think that movie was made for me, what?
It was a very uplifting movie though, and Linda and I came out of it feeling good. We've been to less movies since we've been writing.
Watched a South African movie called Stander. Did you know that Thomas Jane can act? No? Me neither. But he can.
