So… yeah… it has been a while since I last added something to my blog. Oops. So much for keeping a strict and rigorous schedule. Though as I have stated many times before this is basically how I operate in day to day life. I would like to say that I have ordered The Writers Workbook from Amazon so with luck it will be here in a few weeks for me to focus my attention on.
I have a love/hate relationship with TV. I love watching the shows but I hate how shows I enjoy get cut down in their prime. Pushing Daisies and Firefly are two shows that I will forever point to as shows that ended far to soon. More so Pushing Daisies as it was for me one of the few truly original stories on TV, and it hurt when ABC thrust in the knife and killed it. And they tore the wound wide when they twisted the knife and decided not to show the last few episodes. And now NBC has canceled Life and there is a very strong possibility that Reaper won’t see a third season. To me this is just unacceptable. Especially when drivel like American Idol and just about every damn reality TV series keeps on rolling.
In a few weeks the Ghostbusters video game will be released. My excitement for this is somewhere been enthusiastic and frothing demand. Also there are a few games on my radar for the rest of the year. I have had a love affair with Bioware since I played the original Neverwinter Nights and Knights of the Old Republic; so it should come as no surprised that I am looking forward to Dragon Age: Origins and Mass Effect 2. Infinity Ward has just released the trailer for Modern Warfare 2, and I must say I am enthralled with what I’ve seen. There is also Brutal Legend coming out in October that I am giddy with anticipation over. Halo: ODST is the anomaly as I should be excited but I’m not. I’ll wait until I see some more information about the game before making any judgment.
I have also recently been to Video Games Live as they passed through Regina a few weeks back. Sold out show, ton of fun, and I hope they come back in the near future. Was definitely a great birthday present.
With that I shall take my leave until I remember to post again. With luck I will find the old prologue to the novel that I have decided to cut and add it hear. Other than that I shall continue to play Call of Duty 4 online with Halo 3 in there sometime. And maybe exercise some. That would be a change in the right direction I think.
