2017 Armitage Weekly Round-up #16

So, Pilgrimage is out and reviews are in. Strangely, not that much resonance on tumblr. Or maybe not strange – small premiere with no wide release. I’ve been voraciously gobbling up the reviews – both from fans and from media – constantly veering between horror (“good grief, I’m not that much into guts ‘n’ gore”) and irrepressible…

This Day in 201? …

Sunday is meant to be a day of rest, but I am working today because I was too lazy to fulfill my duties on Friday and write an article that is due for publication on Monday morning. Lately I have gotten into the habit of sweetening stressful work days by posting on my blog – hoping…

Disclosure 1: I am *not* a US citizen, but I believe that world politics are significantly shaped…
