What’s Up 2019 Week 8: Slowly back to normal…

What's Up

Welcome to Week 8! February’s almost over and its incredible to think about that. As the Valentine’s marathon is more of a romance marathon in its last leg, movies have slowed down a little as I got back into the groove of both gaming and TV series again. Reading is doing pretty well also. Things are back to their normal balance and its pretty refreshing even if it feels like the Valentine’s marathon’s  last leg is a bit hindered. However, I am enjoying the themed month and thinking of doing that more frequently.

READING

one flew through the dragon heart

  • One Flew Through The Dragon Heart by C.S. Johnson (Review)

Currently reading: The Princess and the Peacock

Wrapped up One Flew Through the Dragon Heart finally. It really had nothing to do with the book itself as you can see in the review (link above). The blog tour is currently happening. The book had a nice subgenre that I don’t read enough of: steampunk. There was really one thing that bothered me a lot but then in the sum of things, it turned out to be a fun little adventure. Its the first book in a series so it’ll be nice to see where it heads next. The current read is also from C.S. Johnson but is a novella so I’m blasting through it rather quickly. So far, The Princess and the Peacock is interesting to say the least. I’ll gather more thoughts probably in the second half (which I’m about to get to).

PLAYING

mortal kombat x

  • Mortal Kombat XL [Story mode]

Currently playing: Eastshade

After a few weeks, much longer than anticipated, of having my playing game as Mortal Kombat X, I have finally moved on with life. Its been a fun game though and a fitting one which helped decrease a lot of frustration via video games. It did have its difficult moments because I’m not good at fighting games but then, its kind of obviously seeing as I took a 4 hours campaign and doubled the time to finish it. Oh well, its how things are. As long as it had its entertainment value.

WATCHING

Secret

  • Remember Me (Review)
  • Ken Jeong: You Complete Me, Ho!
  • Sicario: Day of the Soldado (2018)
  • Secret

Look at this list! I almost am not used to seeing it so short however, it was nice to take a moment to not just watch movies everyday on turbo mode. Its always nice to catch up with newly released comedy shows. Ken Jeong is a comedian that I do enjoy more and more over the years. He’s not my favorite but this comedy show was pretty good. There were some bits that truly worked out very hilarious. As for movies, things were fairly average. Every movie had their issues that broke it a little but as low as 2007’s Jay Chou directorial debut Secret was rated, I connected with it the most and appreciated what it was trying to achieve. Review coming up for that one in the next double feature (probably later today).

BINGING

  • Super-Vocal (Season 1, 2018)

Currently binging: My Amazing Boyfriend 2, The Singer 2019, My Little One (Season 2), Miss Rose

The big binge was finally catching up with Super Vocal, which is a new Chinese operatic music competition that just ended in January 2019. I’ll do a binge of it soon but all the factors work out really well here. I do hope that they keep this as annual thing because it has so many cool things. I found it through the Super Vocal quartet that joined into The Singer 2019. However, the entire thing is pretty fun and I’m a big fan of this type of music even if I don’t listen to it very often.

That’s it for this What’s Up!
Its been colorful and fun to say the least!
