Class Tonight...

Got to see Beowulf with John and... well... I didn't like it much.

Ah well. It was very pretty and quite the adventure and very... Gaiman, I guess.

Sometimes Gaiman's sense of story, which works so well in print and on the page in text just... doesn't work in movies for me. I'm not sure why, but I think it's one of the reasons the 200 didn't work for me that well, either. Something that's moving in graphic novels is... over the top when in motion. Something about it just doesn't translate well for me.

Ah well.

I have the next chapter of Thorn and Ash partially done, but I'm going to have to go to dinner and class. Maybe I can get it out after I get back. Bah...
