Cold as fuck here in Providence, and across most of the Eastern Seaboard. Here the temperature's currently 39˚F, but it feels like it's 21˚F. Fortunately, we got the storm windows closed, sealing ourselves in for the winter. It's raining, and we have a wind advisory until 6 p.m., with gusts up to 50 mph. There were apparently snow flurries earlier. One day, I will live somewhere that has so monotonously warm a climate that I will never have cause to mention the temperature. Please.

I fucking hate this shit.

Yesterday, I managed a paltry three pages on Alabaster: The Good, the Bad, and the Bird. But that was better than the two days before, when I got nothing at all written. This series is holding up my work on other, far more important projects. I'm struggling to get issue #2 finished before we leave for D.C. on Thursday. And I have to be out one day, getting ready to go, so that's only four days I have to finish. There are only twelve pages left to write. I only need to do 3.25 pages a day. ONLY. Which should be a breeze, but I know it won't.

Anyway.

Last night, we finished watching American Horror Story: Coven, and it was superb. I loved it pretty much unconditionally. I was lukewarm on Season One, I hated Season Two, and I'm very much enjoying Season Four. So, perhaps after Asylum someone took Ryan Murphy aside and explained that Season Two felt like a monkey flinging shit at the walls just to see what would stick.

Please have a look at the current eBay auctions and at Spooky's Etsy shop. Thank you!

This is the tenth year that we've ignored the time change, opting to remain on Daylight Savings Time, thus hanging onto more afternoon. It works for me.

From Winter,
Aunt Beast

I live somewhere kind of like that, except when it gets up to 112 Fahrenheit, which is worth mentioning. But there's also always people dressed inappropriately that draw comment from me, too.

I intend to watch that show, it sounds good.

I hope you get caught up with Doctor Who at some point despite your initial dislike for the Twelfth Doctor's first season--I thought of you when I watched last night's episode which used the "Death is not the end" line and I wondered if Steven Moffat's been watching True Detective.

I am currently in the middle of Banshee Chapter. The wit and flow of American Horror Story: Coven was truly my favourite of the completed seasons. Asylum had a moment or two, even with the surreal musical number, but by far is it the least of all four. I can't tear myself away from this season's clown and carny lore.

I would say you belong in Arizona. Majority of the year its between sixty and eighty and daylight savings isn't done. However I don't know how you feel about the three or four months of one hundred and twenty degree weather.

Coven has been my favorite, but Freak Show may replace it. I've enjoyed that they've given the actors who are "differentlife great roles with meat in them. Unless the show goes totally batpoo, it's got me.

And you do need to watch a few more episodes to make judgement on Capaldi's performance. He's given the Doctor an edge. You see him trying to be a "good man" but knowing that he will always be an alien. He's seen and experienced too much. "Listen," "Mummy on the Orient Express," and "Flatline" are worth catching up on. I'm reserving judgement on "Dark Water" as it's part one of a two-parter.

That does perfectly describe American Horror Story: Asylum.

random thought
Your mention of eBay auctions and Etsy reminded me...have you heard of Patreon? More than a few creators in the indie game scene / writers are starting to use it as a way to get modest monthly support from fans. I know you have Sirenia and such, but you might want to check it out!

I watched the first two episodes of Season Two of American Horror Story and was so disgusted I did not bother with the rest. I liked season 3. Probably because of my interest in neopaganism. Kathy Bates was the best thing about it. Season four showcases the entire cast. What a great show.

I LOVED Coven - LOVED it...and I don't watch a LOT of TV - But I have been a pagan since childhood (really I was brought up in a pagan family) And Jessica, Kathy, Emma Roberts, and uh oh yes STEVIE...yeah I'm like Misty Day that way..just a twirlin'and listening to rock and roll in my gypset home...and I'm liking freakshow very much as well. Circus history has also been always one of my things...The second season, Asylum was a LEETLE too disturbing for me..and if you knew of my disturbance threshold - that's a lot.
