Or is it Mew News? Or Meow News?
Got the second dose of the Astra Zeneca vaccine today. Most people who got the second dose of AZ already said that there were no or almost no side effects, but, of course, I’m not them, so I’m waiting to see what will it be like for me.
And that’s why the current mood is:
Any other news?
The story I sent to a contest wasn’t chosen (which is, to be honest, what happens almost every time I send a story to a contest, so I’m used to it), so I posted it on my blog in Serbian. I know, I know, I could have tried offering it to someone else, but I’m lazy.
And other than that, it’s the usual. Well, right now, I’m resting after the vaccine, but other than that, it’s working, reading, watching stuff…
Currently reading: Necronomicon by H. P. Lovecraft. To be more specific, one of the local versions of Best of Lovecraft, the third edition. I’ve read those stories before (and, if you’ve ever read Lovecraft, you know what I’m reading, too), but I was inspired to grab this book after the graphic novel I had read before that.
Recently read: H. P. Lovecraft’s At The Mountains of Madness by Gou Tanabe. It’s got 4 parts, or 2, depending on the edition, and it’s great. I mean, as an adaptation, it’s pretty good; visually, it’s really, really good, and the illustrations spreading over 2 pages are brilliant.
And we’re talking about showing unimaginable horrors, among other things. And strange areas that make people feel uneasy, at best. And… Well, if you’ve read At the Mountains of Madness, you know the tone and the mood this graphic novel is meant to show…and it succeeds.
Go on and read it. Stare at it. Love it.
Speaking of love…
Currently watching: Love, Death & Robots, season 2. I’m about halfway through, and so far, Snow in the Desert is the best episode. Animation is beautiful, and the story is…well, it succeeds in telling a lot about human condition in just 15 minutes, about loneliness, about being different, about…I’m not going to spoil it for you, go on and watch it.
Overall, I’d say that the first season was better, but this one is still good, and well worth your time.
Currently working on: right now, resting, otherwise, work, when there’s any. And in the meantime, struggling with my TBR pile, but you’re probably all familiar with that. So many books, never enough time…
That’s it for now (I’ve managed not to have another belated post, yay!), see you next time!
