On blogging

You'll notice I haven't put anything on the blog recently, at all, not even a review of 2001: A Space Odyssey which I finally watched, but aside from the cultural references ("I'm sorry Dave, I can't let you do that") it really takes far too long, with long sequences with almost nothing happening, characters that are introduced and never seen again, blatant breaking of any space protocols (like talking while doing work outside the craft) and an ending that makes no sense. After all, Stanley Kubrick was a total madman. Part of this is I feel it's useless to complain, fairly useless to post personal memories or thoughts, etc etc. Heck, I rarely even post on Facebook these days, and my most recent posts have been mostly been food-related posts (sangria, chicken and waffles)

However, not all is lost, as I've been updated other parts. I've been back updating Brazos Buildings & Businesses after an extended hiatus, am updating the games list with new titles, namely Eric the Unready, which I disliked, and The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, which I really liked, though as of the publication of this blog post, there's no link to the Zelda page from the Games page.

Since finishing Console Wars, I've stalled out on good books. Neuromancer struck out, and while trying to (re?)read The Chronicles of Narnia isn't a bad deal, they go by too quickly and I still wish I could get something truly engrossing like Console Wars again, which actually made me dislike the 'Net for a while.
