The Allure of Boulder Escapism

We are living in some strange times. I got to thinking about the site today and how I haven’t posted anything since January. This has to be the longest four months of my life, and I know that I’m not alone.

So what have I been up to? Well, since I work in a hospital, I’ve been staying plenty busy at work. When I’m not working and thinking about COVID-19, I’ve been doing what everyone else has. Watching TV & movies, playing video games, reading books, etc. I re-watched the main Indiana Jones trilogy, which continue to be the gold standard for everything adventure films should be. Globe-trotting and boulder escapism have never seemed more alluring.  Under that same category I watched the John Wick trilogy, which rock harder than I could have ever dreamed.

I’ve been gaming like a fiend as well, writing features for my Medium publication. It’s called Game Loot, and it’s an experiment. I’ve mentioned several times that I’ve wanted to write about games, and I figured the most fun way to do so is to try out Medium! I have mixed feelings, but I plan on sticking with it at least until December or January of next year.

I’ve been catching up on my reading as well, and I’m using this thread to capture my thoughts on what I’m reading through-out the year. Lots of good horror, lots of good fiction.

Last thing before I wrap this up: I’ve got a couple stories I’m actively working on. Even though the world is a mess, publications always need work. As always, when stuff drops I’ll post about it on here.

Quick ranking (best to the very absolute worst): Raiders, Temple of Doom, Last Crusade, Crystal Skull

post script: I put together a flash story. It’s a small thing, hidden away on my Letterboxd account. I hope you like it. The spring always needs more ghost stories.
