I don’t talk about it all that often around here, but Watership Down is one of my very favorite books of all time. I mean, anyone who has been reading me for a while can probably list some things I’m a fan of, right? Star Wars, various comic books, etcetera.
I have a Watership Down tattoo. I don’t have any superhero or Star Wars tattoos, although the inscription on the One Ring from Lord of the Rings is wrapped around my left calf. I’m enough of a fan of this book that I have a tattoo of El-Ahrairah from the 1978 movie on my left shoulder blade. So I’m gonna be paying very close attention to this BBC miniseries. I am … cautiously optimistic about the first trailer? The animation’s not great. It may not even be good, if I’m being honest. Okay. It’s hraka. But maybe it’s not done yet.
But a shiver went down my spine at the line all the world will be your enemy. And right now that’s all I need. I’m in, guys. But I hope y’all did this right.
(If you’re wondering if I have anything to say about the other trailer that came out yesterday, yes, yes in fact I do, but I’m hoping to combine that with the Avengers 4 trailer that supposedly is coming out later this week. We’ll see.
I had two different people look at me today and say “Is it always like this?” in reference to my job. One was my boss. The other was a student. The answer was yes. Yes, it is always like this. Every day. And y’all are lucky that I am the greatest gatdamb multitasker on the planet, or shit would never, ever get done. And that’s all I have to say about that. It was a very, very, very long day, but it ended with Chipotle and I have something to look forward to soon, so hell with it. Tomorrow’s new comic book day. Let yesterday burn and throw it in a fire.
