Shhhh, Don't tell anyone I'm posting again...

Well, after way too long between actively blogging, I'm back, with renewed commitment to actually putting more words out there on the internet.

Because we all know that there's not enough folks with superiority complexes exclaiming the rightness of their own viewpoint on the internet.

And in case you happen to be wondering just what it has been that I've been doing with my mounds and mounds of free time, I present to you, the flowchart which I apparently live my life by.

No, seriously.

Anyways, I've once more have gotten on the SF bandwagon, and feel that I know have time to actually write interesting, to me at least, articles on things that... well interest me.

Now, before I get any further into this, I've got a confession to make. It's something so dark, dreary and despicable, I'm almost ashamed that I done it in the first place.

I've read Twilight.

I know, hard to believe, but yes, I've actually managed to snicker through read all 4 novels.

I mean, it's like the worst FanFic written by 14 year old girls out there--all over the top mush with no true bearing on reality or relationships in general.

And that's even BEFORE I get started on the climatic battle at the end of the fourth, and final, novel of the series.

This is one of those things that one wishes they could unread. Which is saying something, because I didn't feel that way about Where the Heart Is or any random Nicholas Sparks novels I've read through the years.

Oh well. In other book news, I've read the second of that unalterably boring book series, Coruscant Knights, and will try to generate a review when that portion of my brain finally wakes up.

Then my brother-in-law was kind enough to hand me over his entire set of the Inheritance Cycle (Eragon, Eldest and the new novel, Brisinger). The lucky dog got a Kindle--though I'm still not certain that I'd want one just due to the DRM involved. You'd think that Amazon, and their DRM-Free music store, would sell DRM free eBooks that would work on any eBook Reader out there, alas though.

But that's off-topic, or at least a rant for another day.

On the proverbial idiot box, we get the first of the Clone Wars cartoon episodes this Friday. I'm still hesitant over these, as the movie really, really reeked. Then that's coupled with the whole thing that we already know what's going to happen and it's a nice recipe for absolutely no danger for the characters.

Of more importance, is the new SciFi series Sanctuary. This I'm somewhat excited about--but then again, I was kind of excited about Fringe as well, and was left really underwhelmed by that series. For those who don't know Sanctuary stars SG-1's Amanda Tapping, and started life as a web-based episodic video series. Which is utterly cool on just the geek principle involved.

Anyways, that's enough rambling for one evening. It's time to go watch some anime.
