Please accept my fond excuses: News March 2021

Hey there, tonstant weader. Sorry for the break. Just taking care of some personal stuff. Nothing intertwined with the geopolitical landscape; just personal stuff. Trust me, you wouldn’t be interested.

I will say this. Someone needs to tell the neighbors that dog shit does not go in the blue recycle barrel. That’s for recyclables. It says so on the lid. I understand that the color coding might be difficult for some people to grasp, seeing as how there are more than one colors to remember. At best you’re being really hopeful that your dog’s shit is, somehow, recyclable. At worst, I’m pretty sure it’s illegal.

I think. I don’t know. I’m not a lawyer. However, I am apparently powerless to control my surroundings. Whatever.

Greetings all. It’s your favorite D-list media reviewer who reads way too much into thrillers. The Golden Globes happened relativey recently, so I guess it’s the time of year when this blog will go through its best of 2020 lists. Anime fans take heart, cos your list is coming up first. Anime was one of the most accessible mediums in 2020, so we went a little nuts.

That list will likely be followed by the movies – the ones we were able to see. Trust me, the list is nothing like last year’s, which was unnervingly exhaustive. We still got in some quality thrillers though, so if you’ve been dying to see what you should have seen, stick around.

Last will be video games, which is definitely going to feel a little shrunken. Maybe we should say “selective.” I’ll explain when we get there. Suffice to say it’ll be closer to a compound review than a best-to-worst list, but there will still be some things to talk about.

I take a couple of months off to return and tell you I’ll be doing something I do every year anyway, but then I don’t actually do it – I just tell you about it. That’s not very satisfying. I’m sorry.

What else can we talk about? There was an anime I had been thinking of doing an episode-by-episode analysis of, but in order to do the sympathetic reviewing-episodes-in-the-order-they-aired-10-years-ago thing I should have started in January. I dropped the ball that no one knew I was carrying. I’m still figuring out what to do with that one.

In the meantime, I found some creaky old horror movies and creaky old mystery games that are worth a few words. I sense a month of retro reviews in the not too distant future.

And, hey, we’re truly in a new decade now, despite all those line-cutters who put together “best of the decade” lists in 2020. I, who so well know the nature of your soul, recognize that’s what you’ve been waiting for: the same list but in 2021. So maybe that’s coming up too.

That’s all I got. What are you hoping to accomplish in 2021, tonstant weader? You can comment below. Or just wait until I get back with some actual content. Either way.
