Alright. First up, here’s the roundup of Superbowl commercials. I loved the ones from GM, Paramount+ (even if we don’t need yet another streaming service), Bud Light lemons, Fivr, Klarna (just because Maya Rudoulph) and of course, the beautiful, beautiful, Michael B. Jordan for Alexa:
Clue, which had at one point been adapted into a comic series, is not becoming an animated show. We’ll have to see how this goes.
In politics, the GOP is spending its time, across the country, trying to restrict voting. Because that’s the only way they win (but they are very, very good at this, and this is a huge threat).
In exciting news, John Fetterman is running for Senate!
And lastly today, a new preview for The Nevers, which looks like a neat Victorian era Magicians, kind of. I’m excited for it!
Alright, let’s see what we have today. First up, the second season of Zombies, Run! was just released. I’m still working my way through their training program and season 1, but it really is an awesome way to get into running:
Goodreads has a good article up about the elimination of the Middleman in book sales and publishing. Am I the only one who is scared about the loss of book stores? Don’t get me wrong, I tend to buy a lot of books from both book stores and Amazon. But I like my experience better at the store. I can ask the sales associates for their recommendations, take my time, and maybe even write a book (we’re thinking of doing our NaNoWriMo write-ins at Barnes and Noble this year).
And additionally, I can’t quite figure out where Goodreads is coming from, it’s almost as if they’re advocating for what Amazing is saying, get rid of the middle man and let everyone publish themselves. The commenters bring up the valid point that without the publishing houses, how else will all the horrible books be taken out of the pile.
Anyway, it’s an interesting read, and it’s a scary, busy time in publishing, that’s for sure.
