What’s Up 2019: Week 43

Tranquil Dreams (46)

A crazy week has gone by! Its made blogging very abnormal and made it essentially impossible to get back into the Halloween marathon. Luckily, there’s Toronto After Dark and that was 95% horror and I had angled some horror stuff to go up. Either way, lets see whats up the past week!

READING

Murder in Montague Falls

  • Murder in Montague Falls by Russ Colchamiro, Sawney Hutton & Patrick Thomas

Currently reading: Legends of Exile

Its seems I have been in a phase of multistories in books as Murder in Montague Falls ended and my review goes up next week which was three stories set in this location. The book currently being read is also somewhat like that with a setting and four stories in Legends of Exile. I literally just started it so too early to say too much about it.

PLAYING

case 23

  • Cube Escape: Case 23 (Review)

Currently playing: Cube Escape: The Mill

I am working on the next Mobile Games Roundup and the second half of Cube Escape series right now. I am a tad stuck with Cube Escape: The Mill, which was one that I had trouble with the first time I played it also. However, I am trying to do these without any help or walkthroughs and just figure it out so definitely get back. Although, I have my eye on the release of Afterparty as its highly considered as the next review podcast for Game Warp. We will see!

Since I was watching all shorts except for one film from the week before that I realized that I forgot to add in, I did banner of my faves. Toronto After Dark has some great short films. The majority are impressive and very fun. Its also very diverse in topics and angles sometimes into sci-fi, even had superheroes plus all kinds of horror. I always appreciate creativity and great cinematography and a lot of these had those elements in spade and some projects that I would hope will expand to some feature films on their great premise.

BINGING

fated to love you

  • Gilmore Girls (Season 2, Rewatch) Review
  • Fated to Love You (2007, Rewatch)

Currently binging: Soft Memory, When I Grow Up, Relation Ship, Creepshow, Bromance, Super Nova Games 2

When I’m busy with work and overtime, my main focus drops to rewatching stuff so that its more background noise than requiring much of my own focus. Hence why Gilmore Girls has popped by on the radar (not that it really needs a reason for a rewatch other than its pure satisfaction and fun times). I’ve been trying to also go through my unreviewed TV series from the past year and decided to give Fated to Love You a rewatch as well. This viewing has actually brought to continue the Taiwanese series catch-up and went on to start Bromance which I happen to watch on my downtime when all the other series I’m currently watching, airing weekly is out of the way.

Along with that new beginning, I also started up Super Nova Games 2, which is a season 2 for this sports competition done by Tencent for its up and coming talent (singers, idols, actors, hosts, etc.).

That’s it for this What’s Up!
