Well then. Short version. Not dead. Bit mean, springing it on you like that, I know. Could have given you a heart attack, probably still will. In my defense it was very funny. okay it's not a great defense

So, last night I got to see the season premiere of sherlock.  I've been really careful  about avoiding spoilers for this season. Unless you've been living under a rock, you know that last season ended with Sherlock jumping to his apparent death, goaded on by his obsessive enemy Moreiry to commit suicide to save all those he held dear from being murdered. It was a gut wrenching scene, and one hell of a cliffhanger.  Of course, everyone know he didn't die (This show IS called Sherlock,  not Watson), but how he survived that fall had fun coming up  with all sorts of  theories ..

If this is to end in fire, then we will all burn together!....... Or why the fandom hasn't completely fled the room yet.

So.... after a freaking MONTH, I FINALLY got to see The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.  It been a rough start to the year.

Anyway.. Thoughts.

This is NOT the Lord Of The Rings movies.  Granted, the book that PJ had to work with was way thinner than LOTRs.  It was basically a childrens book. It's lighter in tone and less descriptive than LOTRs.  So he could take a LOT of  libraries.  And boy did he take them.

Granted, if you are ever just mildly familiar with the geek scene, you heard this all before, so I won't bore ya with a rehash of all that. Instead... A list of what did and didn't work for me

2013, in brief, still glimpses

I've desised to do a "year in photos" post.  Probably will do better at summing up the year then I can in words, if my last post is anything to go by. 

Warning, VERY photo heavy.
