For anyone who’s been reading for a while (and is therefore a liar (I kid, I kid)), or who’s been reading my archives (I’m so sorry) will know that for a while I had a bit of a movie review thing going on. Using review writing as an excuse to force myself to watch “must-see” movies that I’ve failed to catch the first time (or even the reruns) basically.
There were a few problems with this system. Firstly, my preference was to require a co-host, played grudgingly by my brother. Secondly, it required a set time every week, and as I shouldn’t have to tell you, things can quite easily lose priority over other things (life, death, football; you know: the essentials). Keeping that in mind, I’ve reinvented the “Movie Night” concept into a more forgiving one: AntiCinema (because my username is Antitonic, you see. I’m nothing if not clever). Not being tied to a set time allows for life and its respective drains to happen when they need to. Also, I’m capable of watching things independently, so my brother can do what he actually wants, rather than feel obligated my by irreverence.
So what’s the TL;DR of it? Well, on one hand, I think it’s rather dismissive to just not read something; on the other it means (hopefully) more writing, just when I feel like it. So, yay.

I assume there’s some time-screwery happening? Or did Death just straight murder a child? Was it a dark favour for the grandmother?
Is she the demons?
I tried to imply that it was simply Becky’s time…
That’s fair. I think I’ve been conditioned to expect a wibbly border or something similar, like using a cloudy border for dreams, because my first impression was that Death was running distraction allowing the car to get close enough.
Either way, I’m loving the series.

Anonymous said: Technically not a question, but I thought I should say this anyway. Thank you. Thank you for being you. I've had some rather down times of late, and some darker moments in the past, but watching your streams and reading this blog never fails to cheer me up and inspire me. So as "fannish" as this sounds, again: thank you.
As someone who has spent a lot of time in life’s valleys myself, it is very heartwarming to hear little messages like this. It’s a very humbling experience, because when you grow convinced that you’re a worthless tryhard and conflicting evidence like this comes floating along unbidden… Well, it makes it difficult to sustain the illusion that I’m doing as badly as I often think.
