Current Distractions, March 2017 Edition

Spring is my favourite season even though spring in Saskatchewan is ugly, and this year is no different. We're still in the cold part of spring where more snow is a very real possibility at any time, but I'm feeling optimistic about this summer for various reasons. I have a trip booked right smack dab in the middle of it, and I'm hoping to visit various Canadian National Historic Sites and parks over the course of the next several months as well. I also am in the very early stages of planning some landscaping projects for this year.

I'm trying to make the best use possible of my spring surge of energy, and I also think I'm going to cancel my internet connection over the summer, to make sure I won't binge watch Netflix when the weather is nice.


Borgia: Faith and Fear (season 1)

Star Trek TNG

The Knick (season 2)
It feels like I'm the only person who watches this show, which is a shame because it's terrific. I had to avert my eyes a ton this season. It seems the show's been cancelled as of a few days ago, which is a shame.

Finally. I'm surprised I managed to avoid all spoilers for this movie. I really liked it.

Kong: Skull Island
A movie with amazing style and pretty good substance as well. The soundtrack was great, and it was full of big explosions. The story was pretty good, too, as far as I was concerned.

Bone Tomahawk
I'd heard a lot of good things about this movie and tried to watch it alone but the early scenes are really tense and I chickened out, so I ended up making my brother and sister watch it with me. It is a good movie, with the most intriguing tonal shifts I've ever experienced in a film. I was a bit concerned it would turn out to be super racist, but it narrowly avoids that.


I've been taking an extended break from my personal Twitter account (I've been updating the one for this 'ere blog as sporadically as ever). I just deleted the personal instagram account that I was using for about a month before being hacked. I'm now basically just on Litsy (twohectobooks! it's like bookstagram but less pretentious!) and occasionally signing in to Facebook because that one's the hardest one to opt out of completely. My life has been so much better with less social media in it. This is of course not great for promoting the blog more or anything, but no one was ever going to read it anyway.
