Hey, all. Sorry I haven’t posted for most of this year. 2012 started off rather badly for me – I got hit by a car while walking home after dark on New Year’s Day, and I wound up needing surgery for a broken tibia after having my painful and unsupportive knee misdiagnosed as a sprain by my local ER. I guess I fell out of the habit of posting while in rehab (for my leg!), and I apologize for slacking off. I haven’t stopped reading books, listening to music, or watching interesting DVDs and the occasional in-theatre movie.
James Clemens is a good fantasy writer, though I think I prefer the mystery/thrillers he writes as James Rollins. I’ve only read one of his Clemens books so far, so time will tell. The Disney/Pixar movie Brave truly rocks, and I love the vocal-casting choices.
I’ve also belatedly become a fan of Joss Whedon. I don’t know if I’ll be getting into Buffy or Angel, but Firefly and Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog are bright and shiny. I got into Firefly because a friend of mine is running a role-playing game based in that universe. I remember hearing about the series years ago when it was on TV (boo for its only getting one season), but I have no idea why I didn’t watch it at the time.
