Reviews of ‘Charming’ and ’[Rec2]’ forthcoming.
I am reading ‘The Mortal Instruments Book One: City of Bone’.
So flintlock fantasy is the in thing now?
Read casting info for 'Arrow' season 2. Interesting.
Did some more reminiscing about comics of yesteryear. Comics which had stories like ‘Valda’ (immortal super powered girl and her magic crystal have adventures), ‘Angel’ (saintly invalid heads into the Victorian East End to save the poor), ‘Hateful Hattie’ (a girl in a cruel orphanage is the secret patron of her fellow orphans), ‘T for Trouble’ (I recall the name but not the plot) and ‘The Honourable SJ’ (an aristocrat’s daughter is a school bully who keeps getting expelled and moving to a new school over and over and over and over again.)
There was also ‘Cold as Charity’ (snotty madam travels around Victorian England trusting no-one), ‘Watch Out, She’s a Witch’ (girl keeps faking she is a witch), ‘The Girl Who Came Back’ (a girl’s spirit lingers in her old house as she wonders what happened to her, where her family is and why her beloved koala bear hair clip was left behind) and ‘The Survivors’ (bald aliens who look like Studio 54 rejects have conquered the land. Three plucky kids travel to London gaining a fistful of seeds along the way, the aliens are defeated somehow, people do a dance of joy and the three kids and their parents become farmers with just the fistful of seeds.) Ah the days of yore.
“They put me in Kansas. Me.”
“Vanished, simply vanished.”
“He smiled. Inwardly, of course.”
“He’s bleeding in there!”
“Whatever secrets, whatever wonders lay through there would remain there. Untouchable and unknowable.”
‘Mother Love’ (book) Quotes:
“Put one of those gorgons on the sofa, mooning and moaning and reading romantic novels and eating chocolates, and make her queen of a dreary little set of provincial toadies, because her husband made more money than theirs did.”
“Her ears were fine-tuned to insult and disrespect, because she had suffered so much of both.”
‘The Mortal Instruments Book One: City of Bones’ Quotes:
“You were shacking up with some dyed-blond wannabe goth.”
“I’m sure he has a fairly stringent policy about random teenagers lurking in his shrubbery.”
“As if he half-expected her to tell him none of it was true and Jace was actually a dangerous escaped lunatic she’d decided to befriend on humanitarian grounds.”
“Everything makes Valentine suspicious.”
