I may only just beginning my Sanderson deep dive but even I know talking about how great he is at the magic is not exactly a hot take. But despite some trepidation about this book I was intrigued by the magic mystery more than enough to forgive its flaws.
Spoilers for Wandavision and Spiderman actually below! Along with some way off based theaters and why we should all live our alt-reality lives once in a while. Minus the mind-controlled neighbors of course.
Meet Cassie Bowden: She drinks and makes terrible decisions and then she drinks some more to help her get through her terrible decisions. And I have to say I think Kaley Cuoco was perfect for this role because in other hands she might be maddening but I actually… love her.
Directed By: Andrew Patterson
Okay anything alien related or even just weird and out there and I am in right now. So I had to watch The Vast of Night about a switchboard operator and DJ in small town New Mexico who pick up some strange noises and stumble upon a possible conspiracy.
As much as I enjoyed Jame’s white board of audience questions (and him and Darcy being our stand-in’s) to me the humor missed one very important question I think anyone in universe would have…

For the $20 is was still more than worth a rental.
I’m a bit torn on Vision after Episode 3. Not that I like him more here than any of the movies cause that’s true but what he is here is a whole other question.
The Project was one of my most anticipated reads this year. One of my all time favorite authors and two of my favorite book subjects: sister relationships and cults.
And in the grand old expectation game I came away kind of cold. Nothing hitting like I expected it to.
