We are now closing out year two of this little experiment, which I suppose moves it from the realm of experiment into something I’m actually doing for like, real now, especially considering I wrote a whole subset of Highlander posts and wrote real, actual software for it that is now in its second major version. I’m a little surprised by that, and a little surprised at the continued evolution of this blog over the almost twelve years of its existence. But the day has been fun thus far, so I think I shall continue. YTD stats: January: February: March: : 4 books; 4 fiction (1,450 p.) / 3 videos; 1 movies (2.6 h.); 2 TV seasons (15.2 h.) April: : […]

Apparently it’s been a year since I’ve done a computer game post. For that you can probably blame Payday 2, which I should also probably blog one of these days, but for the moment let’s talk about Dishonored, another game entirely.

Maybe it’s useful to ask why I have done this thing.

Season 5 is the strange beast of Highlander. On the one hand, herein are the absolute best episodes filmed in six years of the show, all one after the other like, in the best string of creative energy the show ever experienced. The writers experimented with comedy and epic, with plenty of the deep, introspective plots that are the best part of this series. Unfortunately, they also experimented with some stuff that wasn’t so hot. There’s a lot of magical and mystical elements in Season 5, and as I’ve said previously, most of them don’t work very well in a show like Highlander. That has not changed. Unfortunately, nobody told the writers that. Oh, how I wish they had. Oh […]
