Stuff I’ve Read, Watched, Done #16 – November 23, 2020

I’ve actually done some media-related work since the last time I wrote one of these posts. Wow!

I helped draw this face on this watermelon, for example

Notable Numbers

So, around the same time as I embarked on my Fictional Initials project, I also started this, a post about Notable Numbers.  My goal was to find a Notable Number which had some personal bearing in my life or in my pop culture appreciation, which could also be understood by others.  I decided that my range limit to this would be from 1 to 10,000.

Stuff I’ve Read, Watched, Done #9 – April 21, 2020

Another day, another remote gathering using Zoom or Starleaf.

And in between adjusting for how to do work in our socially distant world, there is also random bouts of entertainment.  Probably the highlight for us in this category over the past week is Pride & Prejudice, the English TV show from 1995.

Stuff I’ve Read, Watched, Done #7 – April 6, 2020

And as we enter into another week of the coronavirus-generated lockdown (or in my case, near-lockdown), and I’d say this is the week that TV and movie viewing has really kicked into a new gear in my family.  We’re doing lots of other things as well–including lots of working with my ministry team in Youth With A Mission Perth and trying to figure out how to move forward in light of all the necessary restrictions.

Stuff I’ve Read, Watched, Done #6 – Mar 30, 2020

Well, it’s a crazy old life we live these days.  Here in Perth, in the midst of the coronavirus crisis, we’re in a near-total lockdown–allowed to go outside for a few particular reasons but for the most part advised strongly to stay indoors.  I continue to work remotely, a lot of which involves having digital meetings.

Stuff I’ve Read, Watched, Done #5 – Mar 22, 2020

Well, as everyone knows, we’re living in some crazy times, full of lots of challenge and  and pain and sadness.  For me, nothing has gone really bad, it’s just highly inconvenient.  But like many of us suffering in the more removed version of these trials, I’m actually pretty comfortable and certainly not suffering in any meaningful way.

So things like television viewing has remained pretty consistent, or even increased a bit.

Stuff I’ve Read, Watched, Done #2 – Feb 29, 2020

It’s Week 2 of where I just talk about all the bits and pieces of the week which haven’t (and probably won’t) make it into their own articles. My intention is to do this every week as a form of logging and journaling, but we’ll see how that goes.

100 Years, 100 Creators – Part 8 (Final)

Over a few posts, I’ve been choosing different creators or creative teams–novelist, composer, scriptwriter, comic book artist, etc–who have influenced or inspired me, and in most cases brought me a lot of enjoyment.
