This week was busy and for the first time in quite a while I put together a nice string of blog posts. I hope to continue that this week as I near my birthday on Thursday.
I may have motivated myself to get some writing done this week but, reading wise I am still mostly stalled. I did wrap up Final Fantasy: Ultimania Archive Volume 1 but I’m still stalled about two thirds of the way through Finder Keepers.

My wife and I went out and saw Crazy Rich Asians, which was pretty much your standard rom-com but well done enough that we both enjoyed the two hour run time. I also watched a short animated anthology film called Extraordinary Tales which focused on a quintet of Edgar Allen Poe stories. I wrote about this on Wednesday for Hump Day Horror. And finally, I watched Wishmaster. I’ve seen the film before but didn’t remember most of it. It is… OK. I’ll have more to say on this Wednesday’s horror post.

After completing a few games last week, I only wrapped up 2064: Read Only Memories INTEGRAL. My review of that went up on Friday. Other than that I’ve started Shenmue and Castlevania: Circle of the Moon. One of those games is good. Hint: It’s not Shenmue.
