I don't watch The Crown and on paper this is good casting (better than Kristen Stewart in that upcoming movie) but she's a bit too...tall...to be playing Diana heh.

After just watching the (great) first episode of Lovecraft Country, it appears HBO will still has quite a few things to look forward to this fall. Gonna check out The Third Day, The Undoing, and We Are Who We Are. Good to see the fall TV season won't be a complete loss due to production on most shows being held back (although we're about to slowly start getting movies back to make up for that a bit).

This is somewhat old news, but I literally just found out about it a couple of hours ago:

 

 

Man, Big Finish really IS relentless.  Even beyond Tom Baker, I was positive they would never ever ever land Eccles.  

 

Yet here we are.

 

...

 

Those lunches really are legendary over at Big Finish Towers after all! :o

But then there will be a gap before TV shows can return. Few have resumed production and they will run out of content soon. Exceptions: a few reality shows and soap operas, and TV series shot in Canada (or other countries doing relatively well).

We could have had Succession and Barry in that lineup too 😕 

(and the new Whedon show, but I’m not big on that guy’s work in general, lol)

This is true (the Emmys next year will probably face the same potential problem the Oscars are this year unless everything returns in time for June 1) but hey, might as well accept what we can at the moment.

Wonder if this time next year we will be talking about the effects that massive political uprisings and near civil war conditions in the US are having on theater business.

Things I'm thankful for:

1. That my state has not shut down this summer

2. That, by my own advocating, my primary care appt that was gonna be canceled this summer, was kept (after having been canceled in April)

3. That referred specialists are also available for in person appts and tests can now be run

4. That movie theaters, with their spacing and cleaning requirements, are now gonna be world's safer for me than before, at least for the short term.

 

So, in 2020, I knew my health was not great this spring, but a little fatigue - whatevs...not an emergency, but not great and needing to be looked at...but Covid...so, it waited a few months...and now...

 

Well, as an early 40's female with zero family history, I now have Chronic Lymphoid Leukemia (also known as Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia).  For a month, I've known this diagnosis was coming, but it still sucks.  In good news, you normally die from infection and illness (not the actual cancer), and you're incredibly susceptible to both, so all the Covid precautions and the washing of the hands - you now aren't just doing it for Covid folks and yourself, but Leukemia folks, too...

 

PS - This is a jackpot diagnosis.  It is more rare for me to get diagnosed with this, that it would have been to die from Covid at my age.  And there's nothing you can do in life to stop it from coming, and nor is it yet curable.  So, I'm gonna spend the next few years enjoying as much of life as available in the bubble, b/c it will be world's safer for me (and my family) now than when we go back to ignoring sniffles and getting together in cramped packs.  As a favor to me, forever try to avoid the 1st (although feel free to do #2, b/c I'll have to avoid those when we get post-Covid anyway)...

 

So, just a reminder - you gotta live the life you have without being stupid about it...and you don't really fully ever control your health - sometimes, sh&t just happens.  

 

PPS - I'm so thankful I only had to wait a few months for the diagnosis, not a few years, since I do have a few markers that might make treatment more necessary sooner vs later...I still have tons of staging testing to do this month and next before I know how bad the prognosis is, but unlike my parents, I do know I won't be stage 4 right away (or stage 3, so we're looking at stage 0-2), so there's that blessing...and I'm gonna enjoy my movie night tomorrow in my practically empty AMC theater with my mask and hope I get a bunch more under the protective policies in place before they, or my health, go away:)...
