Sunny today, and it's currently 64˚F. There is supposed to be rain on Memorial Day, but the tourists will not be dissuaded, here at the Yankee version of Daytona Beach, Florida. Low sixties Fahrenheit and rainy? Why, that's goddamn bikini weather, ya'll.

Last night, we finally started watching American Gods and made it through the first three episodes. God, this show is brilliant, Bryan Fuller at his most poetic, surreal, balls to the wall brilliant. At long last, someone is doing Neil's work justice. The scene with Ananzi on the slave ship, that's one of the best scenes I've ever seen on television. And Fuller has this wonderful way with blood. I think no one has ever done blood as splendidly as Bryan Fuller does blood. Really, American Gods was the only good part of yesterday. Well, except for the leftover birthday lasagna. That was pretty damn good, too.

Later Taters,

American Gods
I've read it a couple of times. I'm looking forward to seeing the show.

A description I well understand.

I had watched the first 2 episodes of "American Gods" via Prime at more leisure but then binged the last 3 episodes on Sunday morning, and paying for it the rest of the day. But oh, I could not stop watching. It is brilliant, and yes Fuller has a wonderful way w. blood. Pleased to see Neil's work done so well.
