This morning, I walked through the streets of Seattle through a fog. This is not a metaphor. A thick mist of haze settled over Seattle. This would be expected in December, but somewhat surprising in August. The sky is grey straight out of Necromancer like a television tuned to a dead channel.
Contract work at the Mouse continues to amaze me. I love working with happy people. It changes your entire day.
I’ve managed to get ahead for once with my freelance fiction writing. I am working on a story due at the end of September. This one is moving by quickly. I see to have more of an affinity for supernatural horror.
I am under a number of different NDAs for various projects. When I am able, I’ll make a couple of announcements. I’m very pleased to be working with a couple of intellectual properties that I simply adore. Work isn’t really work if you love it.
It was very hot this weekend. I couldn’t work out, but I did walk around outside for a while.
I managed to see The Dark Knight Rises. It wasn’t good as The Dark Knight. I thought Hathaway stole the show. The main two villains didn’t work for me. Bane always bores me. Talia could have been so much better as a character. I think the addition of Catwoman diminished her screen time and the possibility for her redemption. That said, I enjoyed watching the movie. Comic book movies continue to improve in quality and we’re seeing a renaissance previously unimagined at a time when Ghostbusters was the best genre movie around.
The big surprise is the excitement I feel about the new Man of Steel movie. This parody captures a lot of my feelings towards Superman. It might be that the All-Star Superman limited series changed that for me. I love Morrison’s Superman and I hope that one day I get a chance to write the character. I am very excited by this movie after seeing the trailer. Superman can be an amazing character as proven by Grant Morrison.
I need to do some research for some of these projects coming up this year. I won’t complain as I am loving it. I have good friends and family supporting me. I will be very happy to have a writing room all to myself. Thus far, I have enjoyed 2012. I have hopes that it will continue to be an awesome year.
