 Listening to Physical Kids Weekly, a podcast on The Magicians, which focuses on the TV series, and am really enjoying it. They made some nice points about how Quentin is not a good narrator to himself and that is likely why I hadn't really liked him when reading the books or watching the series. I still don't like the tone Lev Grossman brings to his books, but I need to reevaluate Quentin as a person now.

 This weekend Sabine takes the spotlight in Star Wars Rebels and I am already seeing people complaining about it on Tumblr; complaining about how Ezra was supposed to be the main character and how an ancient Mandalorian jedi is a Gary Sue. Oh noes, the story focus shifts to something else for a few episodes.

Anyway, onto the positive, I just finished Three Parts Dead by Max Gladstone, and holy shit do I have a new favorite world. Amazing world building and characters. I'm on the fence if I want to read the books in order of publication or as the series internal chronology.

 I think I broke through the OOM bloke, at least for Izana, and should be EPing soon as I have just one more I want to write that is completely my own scene.

GAH! I've two canon OOMs I want to write (Izana and Touji) but I just can't write them.

I might just EP them and forget about writing up the canon.

 Dear Muse, please come out to play? That blank digital page isn't all that intimidating really.

This year I am going to endeavor to avoid negative or complaining posts. I know sometimes it is good to vent, but I think I will try to at least of think of something positive when I do feel the need to vent.

My back is still being a bother, though mostly in the mornings now. Which has lead to a morning of fail for me. Bleck.

Decided to stick with my current pup roister and not look for anyone new. I think the urge I was having was the new pup high instead of any real need to have someone new. So that's a thing.

Still need to go through the Clone Wars seasons and come up with a beat sheet for which episodes/stories I want to cover with Ahsoka.

Still need to write the next bit of canon for Touji and Izana and Pino.

Still need to make notes or story ideas I have, as well as a character outline for a necromancer OC I have kicking around in my head; as well as her demonologist BFF.

Still need to get my back not hurting/aching so I can focus and feel up to playing and writing.

 Today's adventure: Woke up at 4am and had such trouble getting out of bed with my back to go use the bathroom, decided to stay awake and woke out the bunched up muscles. This is an hour and a half before my usual time getting up. I fear how my day will be going.

 I picked up The Unstoppable Wasp today, as well as last week's Spider-Woman. Wasp was really good and I love the art and the character. I am worried she is going to develop into a manic pixie dreamgirl, but I have hopes. Spider-woman was harsh and emotionally honest, and I have to say I am impressed with the direction the writer has taken.

Whelp, back is better though still tender. I am at work and things are slow. Maybe I'll feel up to threading in a bit, having trouble focusing so maybe not.

Warlock Holmes continues to entertain, though it has definitely turned towards the silly. Not as good as Pratchett or Monty Python but still entertaining.

Next book will be Bloodlines which is waiting for me at the library to pick up tonight. Looking forward to a book focused on Leia.

ETA: Her Ladyship has taken a job petsitting for the new neighbors. This is both a good thing (she is getting exposure to the less fun sides of pet ownership. "He ate the cat's poop, Dad. I am so triggered!") and bad as she is still only a 14 year old and so I keep helping her out, doing the early morning shift, cleaning up gross things, and such.

New goal for 2017: consciously enjoy being who I am in the present moment

 Happy birthday to me! I think my goals for the year will be simple:
1-Write
2-Make art
3-Keep exercising and fuck the numbers that measure my gravitational metric.

 Just read Jennifer Walter's new comic and daaamn. She has taken over the Hulk title and she's dealing with a lot of anger and trauma, shifting from sensational back towards savage. Very much looking forward to what is in store. She's also still practicing super hero law and the story seems to include cases from her practice, which is just awesome.

I also started reading/listening to Warlock Holmes--A Study in Brimstone, which so far is a lot of fun. Imagine the more quirky, modern take on Sherlock Holmes and then make him a sorcerer instead of a proto-forensic scientist. So far I'd say this Holmes is more like RDJ's Holmes than Cumberbatch's. Oh, and Moriarty seems to be a spirit or demon guide to Holmes.

Also, the Overwatch rabbit hole.

 I've already done more this morning, as far as number of projects go, than I usually get/do in a day. And there are more coming, and I still have the stack of "Not so urgent" projects to wrap up.

I think I might have to re-EP Eliot just to blow off some steam.
