Sunny today, and it may reach 84˚F. Currently, it's 82˚F.

Yesterday, I managed to write 1,026 words on the piece that has no title. In promise, Sirenia Digest #126 (July) is coming. Eventually.

Please have a look at the current eBay auctions. Thank you.

Sitting out on the front stoop last night, having a cigarette, I saw one of the most dramatic – maybe the most dramatic – shooting star of my life, in the southwest sky. It actually flared yellow orange.

Last night we watch both Man of Steel (2013) and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2015). And I actually liked both, but then I usually do enjoy Zack Snyder. Michael Shannon as General Zod was inspired, and, really, it numbers as one of the best screen portrayals of a comic-book villain ever. All in all Man of Steel is the better film, and, truth be told, I'd have been happy if the whole thing could have taken place in the twilight of Krypton.

I'm slowly working my way through Confessions of a Five-Chambered Heart, rather like I did with The Ammonite Violin & Others a few years back. It's very strange, reading my own writing like that.

The Krypton segment of Man of Steel was my favorite part of the film.

Whenever I see or hear Michael Shannon's name, I want to rewatch Take Shelter again.
