What I watched: I mainlined the last season of Bosch, all in one evening (staying up way too late). It was just that good. They wrapped up the show and the characters in a satisfactory fashion, leaving room for a spin off which is in the works by iMDB, featuring Bosch, his daughter, and attorney “Money” Chandler. I am guessing that everyone is familiar with this show, and I hesitate to share this season’s plots because I do not want to spoil it for you. Based on the twenty-book-series by Michael Connelly (written from 1992 to this year), featuring police detective Hieronymus “Harry” Bosch, the show is well-written with fully explored characters and excellent cinematography. Here is a clip from this final season:
What I read: It was another good book week; however, all the books are far into their series, and one really should start at the beginning. The Untamed Moon (Wilde Justice Book 7) (by Jenn Stark, who bills herself as a “Woo Sherpa”) advances the drama of the Tarot-based “connected” magic users vs. the evil magic users. The books have clever uses of Tarot, as a basis for plot lines, as a tool for divination, and as a structure for ruling entities. The Wilde Justice series follows Stark’s Immortal Vegas Series, featuring the same characters; the lead is a female treasure and antiquities hunter of occult artifacts. Sort of a female Indiana Jones, but with more magic and mysticism, better looking characters, and cooler clothing.
I also read book five in Jennifer Ashley’s Below the Stairs series, Death at the Crystal Palace. The series is evolving into more mystery with fewer Victorian food descriptions. For me, that is not a plus, but it is still a good read from a working-class viewpoint.
What I listened to this week: FRogers – Terrifically Amusing but Lacking Vocal Horsepower (I really like this song and artist); Cinemagraph – Smiling Face; and The Notwist – Where You Find Me (which ever so vaguely reminded me of Modest Mouse and/or the oughts in music, so here is a bonus song).
So, darling DeadSplinterites, how was your week? We are back to hibernation, after two weekends of being out and about. And what of you? Is there fun in your future? What have you watched, read, or listened to? Please tell us how you are and what you are up to these days!
