Notes, 8/30/20

From Around the Internet

Dinosaur Dracula’s 2020 Halloween Countdown – I spent a bit of time this week preparing for what I want to do in September and October, but it’s nothing compared to what Matt does over at Dinosaur Dracula.

Honestly, most of my time online this past week has been spent reveling in the coming autumn season. I have diversions planned.

I also changed my blog template to something that better handles the features of the Workpress block editor. I’m mostly pleased with it.

Currently Reading

The Lady of the Shroud by Bram Stoker – My Classics Club spin book. I was hoping to finish it by Tuesday to start fresh with my RIP/FrightFall reading, but I’m only about 50% done. It’s slow, but not uncompelling. And it’s perilous and frightful enough to be seasonally appropriate.

Deal Me In

K♣️: “With Virgil Oddum at the East Pole” by Harlan Ellison
On one level, a story about the envy/hatred one artist can have for a superior artist in their own field. On another level, a level reached via an H. G. Wells stepping stone, a tale about colonialism and bring “art” to the “savages.”

About The Weather

Record: 50 days of 110+ temperatures in the Phoenix metro. I’m crossing my fingers and hoping that’s the last of 110+.
