Re: What's the last book you read?

Heredity: A Very Short Introduction.

What a useless, steaming pile of ideological nitwittery.

What I was after was a refresher on the mechanics of hereditary in organisms; what I got was a lot of bilge about race, class and gender.

Ugh.

Re: Last Television Show Watched

Well, I watched it from a disc, but an episode of Firefly last night. "Our Mrs. Reynolds," if memory serves, episode 1.7.

Since, well, I have watched a little news.

Okay, a short fan-fic, which is...I'm not exactly sure what. No matter the title, I guarantee it contains no spoilers whatsoever. So worry not.

Re: What SW are you looking forward the most 2019?

I'm not entirely sure which line is the Vintage (isn't there more than one Hasbro 3.75" line at the moment?), but I think I have that figure in the 6" Black Series. It sounds like the line where they re-release past figures. I don't want to pay $80+ for the previous release, so I'm looking forward ...

The TV stuff doesn't grab me; the prospect of E IX fills me with dread...or revulsion, depending on whether I'm feeling optimistic or pessimistic at the time.

Kong: Skull Island. Not as bad as I was expecting. In fact, more entertaining than The Last Jedi. Much more. Nonsensical, to be sure, but entertaining enough for a diversion while preparing and eating dinner.

Colossus , by D. F. Jones. A moldy oldie from 1966. It never gives any specific date indications in the course of 220+ pages, but hints at events taking place round the turn of the century--that is, the 20th becoming the 21st. It tells the story of a runaway supercomputer--well, two of them really-...
