Both parts are well-worth listening to!

So, what have you been up to media-wise?
So, what’ve you been up to media-wise?
Library things on my bookshelves have been building up. That’s partially my fault because of camp taking up 40 out of my 168 hours in a week (not counting sleep, of course) for the last six weeks, but that’s now at an end. However, in the last six weeks, I’ve made it through two books (not counting the four trades that I finished - in issue form, that is) - Mur Lafferty’s ‘The Shambling Guide to New York City’ and Stephen King’s latest, ‘Joyland’, both of which I enjoyed, the former for its quirky nature and the latter for its exploration of 20-something nostalgia in a 1970s knock-off amusement park setting. I’ll have more thoughts on both it and ‘Ocean at the End of the Lane’ once I actually pick it off my shelf and dig into it, which I haven’t yet, even though it’s closing in on two months since I got the book at Neil’s tour stop.
Anyway, library things have been building up on my shelves a little. There have been items I’ve had to return, like the first volume of ‘The Graphic Canon’ (because, honestly, a book that size isn’t easily portable for public consumption; it’s essentially an oversized coffee table book). I currently have:
And that’s not including ‘Hunger’, season 5 of ‘The West Wing’ (one episode in), and ‘House of Cards’. And I should also mention that I FINALLY picked up my copy of ‘Clash of Kings’ after finishing ‘Joyland’ because it was (one of) the most portable books on my shelves, but now I’ll probably have to put it down … the question here is, where do I start?
So remember those monthly Media Recap type posts I started at the beginning of the year and fell behind on? Well, be prepared for a whole bunch from the last few months! Today is the last few months in movies (in theaters and on DVD/TV). Tomorrow is TV shows.

So, what have you been watching lately?
“For the last 20 years of my life, I’ve been wearing something unrecognizable. I’ve been acting for 20 years now and I’ve been under the radar.”- Doug Jones
what a dapper gent aaaa
I have seen all of these. Never knew who he was.
and now I love him
Doug Jones is one badass movie monster actor. All the respect!
Me today, but the movie is ‘Les Miserables’ and I’m saving room for the Doctor Who Christmas special.
Anyways, a Merry Christmas to all!
April: Game of Thrones season 2, Cabin In The Woods
May: Avengers, Dark Shadows, Men In Black 3, Moonrise Kingdom
June: Prometheus, Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter (kinda), Brave
July: The Amazing Spider-Man, The Dark Knight Rises
August: The Bourne Legacy, ParaNorman
September: Argo (mainly because of the talent), Looper (FINALLY!)
October: Frankenweenie, The Gangster Squad (again, the talent), Alex Cross (Kinda, namely because I’m familiar with most of the books … and I hope that this adaptation turns out better than the Morgan Freeman ones. Honestly, get the age right!)
November: Wreck-It Ralph, Skyfall, Rise of the Guardians (again, the talent)
December: Les Mis, The Hobbit (goes without saying … and in 3D), Django Unchained, The Great Gatsby (probably not in 3D, though)
Not as many as last year … but eh, it’s not a big deal. Pretty good count overall, I’d say.
In Theaters (in the order of viewing)
On DVD (in the order of viewing)
Not counting or tallying re-watches this year, but the few I can think of include Monsters, Inc., Up, and Little Rascals.
*gently pokes with a stick* *whispers* Hey … new video … featuring 3D glasses, talk about loading film cameras, “50/50”, and the “Breaking Dawn Part 1” trailer.
Oh, hey, new vlog about my thoughts on the end of the Potter era!
