Other Ten Percent 11/18/13

Nov 18 2013

So in the past week (from my POV, time moves differently for us both now remember) my parents have both been sick and Nikki has been sick and now I have a tickle in the back of my throat that never seems to become MORE than that but also has me in a state of constant paranoia as I try and avoid getting sick before Jane’s party on Saturday night (again, time moves differently) which so far seems to be going well but WHO KNOWS really.

Cabin in the Woods director could pen new Daredevil series
Maybe if I pin all my hopes for Marvel TV on stuff like this Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will get really good now that I’ve finally given up. It worked for Dollhouse.

Netflix Rolls Out a Redesigned “Cinematic” Interface for TV-Connected Devices
This standardization does not seem to have hit my console yet but maybe Netflix just forgot the Wii U was a thing? That seems depressingly plausible.

Some of this is kinda entry level comparative analysis but there’s also some interesting stuff about their different approaches to story.
