As a workaholic I recognize that's not always a good thing. There needs to be down time. For me this mainly consists of working out (doing circus), hiking, watching TV shows, movies and reading.
I'm almost done with American Gods and though I loved the book, and books are always so much better, the TV show does not disappoint. Ricky Whittle - WOW, just WOW! Handsome as F, amazing actor and not just another white guy. YES on all counts! The actors on the show are all fantastic! Wonderful execution - and this comes from a die hard Neil Gaiman fan!
I just finished watching Ghost in the Shell and I loved it. Why did it get less than 50% on rotten tomatoes? I also watched and loved the first anime movie back in 1995 and it's times like these I'm happy my memory is not so great when it comes to movies because watching the new version was like Major's memory. Very fuzzy! I love Scarlett Johansson in everything and was super happy to see her in this, however I do believe they should have gotten a Japanese actress - again there really are too many white people in Hollywood. And yes of course it was originally a manga and more complex and all that blah blah but dang did it LOOK GOOD as a movie! I don't need to dissect every little thing anymore and I have a degree in film so if I wanted to, I could.
But now I get to just watch something, enjoy it for what it is, be entertained, turn off my brain for a bit - and then go back to writing.
Tomorrow I will turn my brain off by going out in nature where imagination truly reigns supreme.
