outside the blogosphere

Not much to report this week! I cleaned a lot, watched a lot of movies, and practiced some solid self-care. I guess this is one of those times where no news is good news. 😊

reading this weekend…

I want to start Darkdawn tonight, but only after I finish some library loans & at least one ARC from the following list:
📚 Dahlia Black
📚 Shout
📚 The Work of Art
📚 Outer Order, Inner Calm
📚 How to Manage Your Home without Losing Your Mind

what I watched

🎥 Martyrs (2015; US remake) [Prime] This was TERRIBLE. It’s the only movie on Letterboxd I’ve literally given half a star. Skip this and go for the French original.
🎥 Cabin Fever (2016; remake) [Netflix] Pretty bad.
🎥 Don’t Knock Twice (2016) [Netflix] This one was just okay.
🎥 Jeepers Creepers (2001; rewatch[personal library] I’ve seen this one a million times and it’s still fun.
🎥 Terrified (2017) [Shudder] Holy shit, this was so weird but AMAZING! I really recommend this if you don’t mind non-English horror with subtitles.
🎥 Hell House, LLC (2015) [Prime] My favorite watch of the week. It’s a found footage “documentary” about a haunted house disaster and it had me so creeped out.
🎥 Pokemon: Detective Pikachu (2019) [Redbox] This was honestly SO freaking cute.

what I listened to

* these are my favorite songs of the week!

🎵 Lacuna Coil — ‘Losing My Religion’ cover (I hate the original song, but this cover is amazing.)
🎵 Evanescence — Spotify’s ‘My Immortal’ radio station (a 2-day obsession with revisiting this song led me to the Spotify radio station, which was pretty solid.)

what I played


🎮 Final Fantasy X — I finally started another game — my SEVENTH (7TH!!!) play-through of FFX. This is the first time I’ve played the PC version on a computer that can run it without skipping during cutscenes and it’s been amazing. 😂

    That is some epic devotion to FFX, playing it seven times! I loved the game, looking forward to my 3rd playthrough hopefully sometime this year. 😀

    I got Final Fantasy X remaster on Switch and hope to play it soon 🙂 also are you a Lacuna Coil fan?! If so, have you heard their new song “Layers of Time” yet? Great post

      I just realized the Switch is the only version of FFX I don’t have! I might have to fix that. 😂😂😂 And I have not but I’ll definitely look it up! Thank you for the recommendation! ❤
