Stream of Consciousness #3

Looky here, I had nothing planned again so you get another one of these posts where I spew words out at random and see if anything comes out coherent at all.  People seemed to enjoy the last two of these posts I made so hopefully these aren’t too annoying.

This time I’ll be writing while listening to my Lucifer playlist.  So if any of this sounds suspiciously like fan fiction for Lucifer, well… that might be why.  Here we go.

Story Idea – Demon’s Lullaby

The title of this story may look familiar if you’ve been following my blog for a long time.  I did write a version of this story back in 2015, but now I’m doing a new version which is significantly different and I think much better.  It certainly reflects who I am as a writer now over back then (with its themes and such).

If you like magic, fantasy, or comedy, this will probably be of interest to you.

Movie Review – A Monster Calls

Last year I read a book entitled A Monster Calls, which when I read the synopsis sounded like it was right up my alley.  Monsters and nightmares are kind of my thing in case that wasn’t obvious by now.  But what I got when I read the story was something entirely unexpected and it became one of my favorite books ever just like that.  It was a story that dealt with emotions and loss in a way that I had never seen before and I loved it dearly.

And then one day I happened to find out they were making a movie based on this book and I got incredibly excited.  Finally, for once I could see a movie based on a book where I read the book first even before I knew about the movie.  That doesn’t happen like… ever.  And I just saw that movie this past week so I’m going to give my thoughts on it now.

Episode Analysis – Lucifer 1×01: Pilot

I’ve been meaning to do this for quite some time now.  Lucifer is a much deeper show than people might give it credit for and every time I watch the show I just see layers and layers of theme and great characterization and I love every second of it.  I’ve marathoned the first season multiple times (4-5 or more all the way through) and now I’m gonna do it again, but this time I’m going to look deeply at each episode and see what I can get out of it and then post it here.

Warning: Spoilers ahead.

Game Review – Pokemon Red/Blue/Yellow

So a little backstory on this first: when I was a kid I never played the Pokemon games (as I never had a Gameboy of any kind), but I did watch the show quite a bit.  Even though I stopped watching the show after awhile, when I was an older teen I got back into Pokemon and, after getting an emulator, I got the first generation of Pokemon games.  However, I never was able to beat them, either due to how long the games took and eventually losing interest, or some other reason, I’m not sure what it was, but after the newest Pokemon games came out (those being Sun and Moon), I decided I wanted to try playing these ones once more, and finally I made it to the end.

Now while I did play the Blue version for this review, I have played a bit of Red and Yellow as well so I know what they’re like, but just to make things clear: I’ve only completed Pokemon Blue, and I probably will not venture into beating the other two because I really see no point.  Also, I would have played Yellow for this except for the fact that in Yellow you’re stuck with a stupid Pikachu following you around the entire game and it refuses to evolve into a Raichu, which is one of my favorite, so screw you Pikachu, that’s why I played Blue.
