Current Distractions, July 2018 Edition

July treated me pretty well. I had a chance to go camping for the first time in years, and I've generally been enjoying this summer a lot. It's hard to believe that we're basically entering the last nice month of the year now. (Note: this is applicable mainly to my Saskatchewan readers, of course. Also thanks to global warming, Septembers are often quite mild now, too. Oops.)

I'm sure you won't be surprised to learn that I'm rushing to finish this post considering that that's very typical of me. But I'm going to try to really put in some effort here. I'm also just going to throw out a random aside that part of what I've been trying to achieve when I've been stuck inside on the occasional evening that's way too hot, is to speed up my posting schedule again. I'll let you know if that's successful at all.

Second aside: I have gotten distracted so many times while writing this.. Here's hoping August is better?


Ant-Man and The Wasp
This was good! It wasn't one of the better entries in the MCU, but it was fun to watch. The first instalment was a bit better.

Jessica Jones season 2
Again, not quite as good as the first instalment (in this case, a whole season of tv), but I liked a lot of this. I feel like it's almost convinced me to watch the four (ugh) other Marvel shows on Netflix, but I'm not sure.

Babylon Berlin
Still! It's so much fun, but I'm watching it a little slower because reading subtitles gets a little tiring sometimes. If you want something different, I highly recommend this. It's like 1920s detective noir but in Weimar republic Germany. If that doesn't pique your interest immediately this probably isn't for you.

Star Trek TNG
I've officially made it to season 6!

Last month I'd been lazy and this month I.. kind of have again? I've now swum a cumulative 50km for the year, but my trendline is extremely flat.

I'm thinking I need to write a "podcasts I love" post. In fact I've been thinking about it for a long time. I'm officially adding it to my drafts, and I'll aim to get around to it eventually.
