Top 5 Wednesday: Most Recent Additions To Your Wish List

Oh gosh, when was the last time that I did a Top 5 Wednesday post? According to my calendar, it was March. Now I can’t vouch for April or May, but I’m pretty damn sure that I couldn’t relate to  any of June’s topics. July though? Only my own poor timing could stop me from doing any of these.

Everything on today’s list is coming from Amazon, because that’s where I’m most likely to build a wish list. GoodReads is great for tracking my reading, but my To-Read list doesn’t make much of a distinction between what’s already in my library and what’s still in the store waiting for me to buy it. I could clean it up a bit, but all of the secondary lists are connected to the three main ones, so it’s never as clean as you want it to be.

In any case, here are the most recent additions to my Amazon wish list (for books):

MNEK Is My Greatest Musical Find

Bold words, right? But you have to understand where I’m coming from.

Way back in 2014, I taught at a high school that managed to block just about every music app except SoundCloud. For me this was terribly unacceptable because my personal music library could only do so much. So I downloaded SoundCloud and made it work. At some point in the Fall of 2014, I found MNEK’s “The Rhythm” and my whole life changed.

Talking Heads

Ever since I started listening to podcasts, my goal has been to actually get on one. I eventually want to have one of my own, but I figured being on someone else’s would at least start the process. Last month, my dream came true and I got to guest on 2 podcasts and one video cast all within a 3 week timeframe.

Here’s the results:

Last Month In Comics – June 2016

One of these days, I’m going to sort myself out about these Week/Month in Comics posts. But, as long as you’re still here with me, here’s the rundown for June. Please note that everything on this list is directly from my subscriptions, with no added titles. So if you’re looking for a review of Future Quest #2, it won’t be found here as I did not add it to my box.

 

Now, some of you might remember that Rebirth and Civil War II recently started, so a lot of the comics on my list were noticeably affected. These things were neither good or bad; they just kind of worked, if only for the sake of continuity.

The Hill You Choose To Die On

Recently, I wrote a post for Fandom Following called “Blind Fandom”, as part of an ongoing “Adventures In Fangirling” series. The intention of the post was to talk about how one should be aware of the things that go on both in their fandoms and the franchises that those fandoms are centered around. However, the comments ended up devolving into both a critique and defense of the way that the site I write for criticizes Game of Thrones. So that brought me to this thought: when arguing about fandom, even before you decide to pick your battle, you have to be sure that this particular fandom is the hill you want to die on.

#FridayReads

This week (and last) I read a ton of trades that I thought were just amazing. So I rounded them all up, and put them here.

This Month In Comics – May 2016

Hey All!

I am back again with the whole of my May pull list: 16 issues from 16 different comics. I refuse to call this Last Month In Comics because I wrote majority of it while we were still in May, and June starts on New Comic Book Day. Deal with it.

This (last) month, two of my favorite comics ended! Also, Steve Rogers came back as a White Supremacist, and I actually liked a Cyborg issue. Crazy month, this May was.

Let’s begin!

In My Room

So I’m a couple of days behind with Every Day Inspiration, and I wanted to do Day Six because of how it connects to something later on down the road.

I write in my room because it’s my safe space. The walls are a light blue, and the furniture is a mahogany brown. I’m surrounded by my books, music, movies, and everything else that comforts me. Sometimes I feel like I’m in here too much, but I’m also at my most comfortable here. So I think it just depends.

Last Month In Comics – April 2016 pt. 2

So last month, I was not able to review all of my April pull list because of personal issues. Thankfully, this month I got all of my comics, and am now able to play catch up.

I will more than likely be doing a big round up post for the May installment of “This Month In Comics”, but that won’t be until sometime after next Wednesday. I don’t like the idea of these posts being so close together.

April saw the end of a few arcs, and even one series, as well as a writer change for a title that is somehow managing to survive the reboot. With DC Rebirth right around the corner, I expect a few places on my pull list will be emptying out in order to accommodate some new additions. While I don’t agree with the ending of some of these books, I’m optimistic about beginning the newer ones.
