It's a New Dawn, It's a New Day....
Today is the first day of the New Year!
There's a few things coming up that I am looking forward to, detailed here....
Well here we are! There's some things that I am looking forward to, so I'll do my best to list it all here. This posting is mostly a list, so it will be random and unorganized. I will apply structure where applicable.
- 2015 Ottawa Comic Con. There are some trades I'm after I'll be on the hunt for. There is not a comprehensive guest list announced yet, so here's hoping for some good panels and guests that will not solely dedicated to one particular fandom.
- Nova Scotia. My lovely lady and I will visit Nova Scotia at some point for ourselves, sightseeing, and visiting some of my family.
- a new job. Let's just say that I am in need of a new job, and would definitely appreciate one sooner rather than late. No less than 3 months, and no overnights (rotating sleep schedules is not good for one's health)
- publishing something. It's been a while since I've spoken about writing here. What with all these crazy hacks going on, I'm keeping mum. I hope to publish something in the coming year if I can. I will let you know of more info once applicable.
- Some Books. Novels, as well as some graphic novels. There is a Walking Dead hardcover coming out in the fall, as is custom, a new Dark Tower trade coming in March (perhaps one or two more through the year), some Batman. For books, there's The Art of the Lord of the Rings (Tolkien's artwork), The Empty Throne by Bernard Cornwell [in the format I get], The Slow Regard of Silent Things [in paperback] by Patrick Rothfuss, The Spider's War, the finale by Daniel Abraham, Golden Son by Pierce Brown, hopefully The Winds of Winter by George R.R. Martin, and whatever other surprises come, though I don't plan to buy a lot of books - print novels - this year.
- video games. As of now, there's at least one I plan to get: The Legend of Zelda (u) coming in November!
- blu-rays. I'm sure I'll buy a few throughout the year, but one I know I will buy is The Hobbit extended edition trilogy.
- TV shows. new episodes of: Downton Abbey, House of Cards, Vikings, Game of Thrones, Mad Men, Sherlock, and catching up on others.
- movies. There's a few, but the big ones I'm looking forward to are Avengers 2, Spectre, Mission Impossible 5, Mockingjay: Part 2 and The Hateful Eight.
- a new computer. I'm thinking either an Alienware or ASUS laptop.
- a new phone. iPhone 64GB .
- beer. I'm always discovering new breweries, or my favourite ones brew new...ah, brews. Next up on my list to buy is St. Bernardus Abt. 12.
...and whatever positive things life throws my way. That's about it for now, though....
