It Takes Faith.

First and foremost, I would like to say that I have reached my 900th post! It is true that I have slacked off since towards the end of last year, and then ever since I began my newest job, but I have a feeling that will be changing. I have been blogging for quiet a few years now; I think that it will actually have been 3 years comes this August, and my website has been around for over 4 years now. I remember I started doing all of this to promote my fantasy trilogy, and I feel like I was able to accomplish that goal somewhat, but I really have no clue. I was lazy today and didn't do any editing for Book II, but I am hoping to make up for that tomorrow. Some excellent news though is that I am taking one of the final steps to re-normalizing my life in that that I am moving out of my sister and brother in-law's basement, and into my own apartment at last! It's taken me longer than I had wanted, but the timetable was what I had been anticipating would happen. I am so relieved and excited, and it's a rather spectacular space as well. Furnishing it is going to be a pain though, because I have to get all new stuff since I had to give pretty much everything away in San Diego. Little by little though I will regain everything. It was a long week though, despite being quite productive at work, concerning which I am getting better and better. There is still much territory that needs to be discovered and so many things that I do not know at my place of employment, but in due time that will all settle itself out. Now, I began watching the epic mini-series "The Bible" the other day, and honestly I'm not that impressed. The visuals I have to admit are quite lovely, most of the time; I was especially fond of the creation segment. I also really enjoyed the part about Abraham, but for the most part the acting is dreadful and the dialog makes you want to cringe. The sets are usually quite pitiful, and whoever the casting director was should have been shot. For something that takes place entirely in the Middle East, you would think that they would recruit talent from that area, but no everyone is British. I have so far only watched the first disc, and I'm not overly impressed. It's nice to see the Bible brought to life in such a way, but at the same time I was expecting so much more. However, the biggest and best bright spot of the entire thing so far is the music by Hans Zimmer, Lisa Gerard, and Lorne Balfe. I love this music. It is full of passion, emotion, and something very deep...almost spiritual. I definitely recommend it. I could go on critiquing it in so many ways, but I won't and I think I painted enough of a picture. Despite my better judgement, I'm going to continue watching it, and see how much I want to pull my hair out by the end. Well there it is everyone. Have an excellent weekend.
