Is it Friday afternoon yet? This has been one of those weeks that started out OK, then went into a bit of a slide. There’s been a little extra stress at work the past two days, and I realized that I managed to miss seeing Rise of the Planet of the Apes in the same way I missed The Tempest and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 this past winter: I wanted to go, and I had access to a movie theatre, I just didn’t seriously think about making time to go until it was too late. Oh well. It won’t quite be the same, but I’ll probably see about borrowing a copy when it comes out on DVD. Hopefully I’ll get my heine in gear to see Anonymous – the historical drama centered around the Oxfordian view of the Shakespeare Authorship Question – Oxfordians are convinced that Edward De Vere, Earl of Oxford, was the true author of the plays attributed to Will Shakespeare, The Man from Stratford.
At this point, I’m really looking forward to NY ComiCon, which is 2 weeks away. I bought my ticket for the Saturday, and I understand that two friends of mine are going to be attending that day as well! Maybe I’ll get to meet up with them for a bit when I’m not trying to get Peter Mayhew and Stephen Lang’s autographs or just wandering and passing out Lunacon 2012 bookmarks. I also heard from another friend that Rockapella is going to be performing in Manhattan in early January. You may remember that a few months ago I was getting more excited about seeing Rockapella perform live at Fairfield University in Connecticut than I was about the Royal Wedding. Jeff Thacher, Human Drum Set, truly rocks my worn-out socks!
