Summary for the month of Nov 2017

Here’s a summary of activity for November, 2017.

I didn’t get as many reviews and things done this month as I had hoped. Mostly this last month has been the beginning of feeling like hibernating, but I’ve managed to reach my reading challenge of 50 books read this year over on Goodreads, so, you know, at that rate, I’ve only got two more decades of reading in just my stack of to-be-read books. At some point, maybe already, I will have more books in just my to-read stack than I will be able to finish in whatever life time I have left … But, the cats are getting more and more cosy and comfy, and there’s plenty of hot tea, so it’s okay. I’m also almost at a 300 day streak on DuoLingo which is cool. I’m currently working on German, though I’ve also been doing High Valyrian for extra fun. We’ll keep on keepin’ on!

There are actually seven cats in this picture

A Darkness Surrounds Him

Outcast, Vol. 1: A Darkness Surrounds Him by Robert Kirkman, Paul Azaceta, &al., collects the first issues in an interesting new story in just as dark and depressing a world as Kirkman’s The Walking Dead and the show. It’s an interesting take on possession horror, but here’s the thing: I’ve gotten tired of the depressing and awful trudge through mud that is The Walking Dead, and that’s not even mentioning the unappealing-to-me descent fully into torture porn, so the promise of another whole series just as persistently relentlessly repetitively rotten and dark just doesn’t do it for me. Beyond the gore in this one, given the way exorcism horror goes, more torture porn is sure to come as well. It’s not bad. It’s actually good at what it does. I just have trouble finding a way to want to go further in either story. But, if you’ve got the wanderlust for more dark travels without respite, this would no doubt appeal. For myself, I enjoyed it for a while, and again here, but I’ve moved on.
