Year Three

Sooo…. Year Three.




It wasn’t like I didn’t have the best of intentions to complete Year Three… I promise!  As much as I tried to play catch up – postdating as best I could to finish Year Two – I just seemed to fall out of it either because of work, laziness, lack of interest, etc. I was determined to at least get six months completed for 2014 which would close out Year Two. But there was no way I could continue doing that for Year Three. It’ll just be a phantom zone of ideas. A no man’s land. A negative zone.

Doesn’t mean I didn’t take notes! Down below is a list of notes I compiled as I played catch up, ranging from July 2014 to September 2014. Most of these topics would have become site posts or even TDR podcasts themselves. And I would’ve kept with the regular monthly posts such as Timeline Tuesday and Previews, as well as the weekly New Comics Wednesday. Included in the list are all of the podcast appearances to date as well. 

And now with July 2, 2015 being the start of Year Four… maybe… MAYBE… things might go differently.

We’ll see…. PJR

  1. So what exactly is your comment on Sherry Jackson about (was that on Twitter)? Reading that reminded me of my recent reaction to Marianna Hill, who played Helen Noel in Dagger of the Mind. Even though I’ve seen these episodes dozens of times, as I’ve been rewatching them now, I am struck by different things than when I was younger. In this case, it was Hill’s chemistry with Shatner and the playfulness and coyness that she was able to convey on screen–it kind of surprised me actually. Plus, she’s just cute.

    Holy cats! That WW drop was astounding! I would’ve broken many things if that would’ve been me. Also, I love the things you curate from the Internet. You seem to be able to find really interesting things to look at.

      1. Eric – Just that Sherry Jackson had me swooning while watching the episode. Haha. I’m usually so caught up in watching out for the Star Trek mythos bits that it was fun to be distracted by her. I love how the original series so lives in the era it was created. Not all of the characters mesh, but yes, I agree – some of the are well done. Thanks for the IDW heads up!
