There seems to be a small but devoted JC fanbase on Tumblr, so I decided to get myself one -- GeistWorks.

In other news, I'm finally up to date on Castle. The recent Halloween episode at the convention was superb.

Books:

I decided to actively read the Dresden Files in order to catch up to the very latest book, Cold Days. I'm slowly working my way through Ghost Story right now which is harder to read because my second favourite character hasn't turned up yet, and probably won't.

Anyway, here are my reviews for all the books I've read in the past month and a bit in the order I read them:

Johannes Cabal: The Detective, Johannes Cabal: The Fear Institute, M.R. James: The Haunted Dolls' House and Other Ghost Stories, Volume 2, Dexter: Darkly Dreaming Dexter, Dresden Files: Grave Peril #3, Dresden Files: Summer Knight #4, Dresden Files: Blood Rites #6, Dresden Files: Dead Beat #7, Dresden Files: Turn Coat #11, Dresden Files: Changes #12, and Roberts: The Dragon With The Girl Tattoo.

Film:

I went to see Skyfall and Argo recently. I imagine that you've already seen Skyfall if you were planning on it. All I have to say is that 1) I liked Q, but I don't ship him with Bond and 2) I felt a little inadequate with Bond going "Omigod, I can only do ten pull-ups and fifty push-ups *sob*."

Argo was really good. Surprising, considering Ben Affleck directed and starred in it. I was already interested in the basic premise, but I was impressed by how taut the final scenes were.

Next: The Hobbit.

Life:

I performed impro at a theatre in front of a paying audience a few weeks ago. Felt good to be back. I'm also close to finishing a novel I've been working on and I don't think it's too bad, for once.

I hope everyone's okay and safe, particularly with things like Sandy hitting the US.

I don't really understand tumblr! I have been following various blogs for a while but actually posting in my own ... I feel old, I don't want to try to figure out another social networking interface ._. Even though there is stuff I want to reblog.

what? 32 is young! obviously these people need to work with seniors more.

Hm, that's a pretty good rubric for determining if comething should be reblogged. Have to remember that, once I actually have time to waste on tumblr. one more day one more day one more day.

eh, well, 'kid boomerang' is also a canon nickname for Captain Boomerang II/Jr, so it's possible that the tag won't reference me at all? *shrugs*

oh, man, I'm sorry. I didn't mean for that comment to come across that way, I meant that I am 32? And I am certainly not old or feel the need to term myself "years young." And I have worked with a number of people in their 50s and 60s ("seniors") and they are really not that old, and are in fact still quite active and creative and that using that phrasing "years young" is rather telling of the fact that they have not, or the tumblr-people would realize that you really aren't "old" at age thirty nor is your age something to be regretful over. My fiancee often comes home lamenting how young some of the vets she takes care of are -- and she's talking about veterans in their sixties, because she works with patients who are often well into 80s and 90s who are perfectly mentally spry. It just makes it really obvious that the people who made tumblr don't have connection with generations previous to them, or they would realize how subjective "youth" is.

Long ramble over, tldr; did not mean to offend, actually I think we are just about the same age?

Many things about tumblr are terrible it seems. Even people who have been on it for years seem to complain about this, so it looks like familiarity probably won't erase those annoyances with the UI.
