Hello Thursday morning. We're supposed to have record breaking temps today. As always, I have a wait and see attitude. The sky is overcast and there is a whopper of a winter storm crossing the state just above us. Originally we were supposed to climb into the upper 70s (F), that no longer seems to be the case, so revisions are being made to the forecast as I type.
There was a slight hiccup in getting paperback version of The Body on the Lawn set up in Barnes & Noble. I was sounding a lot like Bobby Tussel yesterday when I found out they only accept pdf photos for cover art. I have no problem converting a jpeg to a pdf, however there are limitations when it comes to sizing. Windows will create fairly standard page sizes, however the template requires a photo 5.895 inches, a size that is not on the menu. To blunt my frustration, I went downstairs and killed a number of robots in Atomic Heart. After that, I quietly subscribed to Adobe which will permit me to convert any jpeg to a pdf in any size my little heart desires.
I went to see Ant Man and The Wasp last evening. It's entertaining, for the most part. Except for a few scenes at the beginning and end, you're in a CGI Universe. I watched a Scottish reviewer call it shite. Well, it isn't, not really. The Marvel Studios has the formula for turning comic books into hit movies down pat. They will only change it if forced to. That being said, I didn't think Paul Rudd was nearly as funny as he's been in the past. Part of the success for the Ant Man series depends upon his comedic talents. Because they weren't there, I noticed other things, like the fact that his head is so much bigger than his body. Cory Stoll has a supporting role and he has the same problem: big head, little body. If you have Disney, you might want to wait until this one streams.
