The local one is gone. I decided to write an essay in memory of it and the multitude that have closed which I've loved. The essay was pretty long. I'll need to edit and clean it up a bit but it was deeply personal writing.

It was decent day. I'll miss the bookstore but in the closing weeks I've gotten ten good books from the store for around 20 bucks.

- The first two volumes of Twelve Kingdoms (Sea of Shadow and Sea of Wind).
- Battle Royale.
- Alas, Babylon
- Sighs of Haruhi Suzumiya
- Deepsix by Jack McDevitt
- Ice Land by Betsy Tobin
- A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius
- Rainbow's End by Vernor Vinge
- The Box (short stories) by Richard Matheson

Farewell bookstore ;_;...
A fun show. There were some episodes that were kinda filler-y and there were some plotlines that kinda vanished. I wanted to see everyone do a ballad in the Ballad episode.

The show is rather close in style to Freaks & Geeks from the 90's where Seth Rogan first showed up (on anything significant). I could see these actors getting famous in films.

The soul of the show seems to be focused on Artie (the wheelchair kid) and Kurt (the flamingly gay kid). Finn is interesting though but he is so inconsistent. Same as Rachel is so full of herself in that Tracy Flick from Election sort of way. She's ordained herself to being a star. While she does kinda learn some play-by-the-team stuff, she's still very full of herself.

Quinn Fabray, the pregnant cheerleader, definitely went through the most interesting transition from a stone cold bitchy type singing "Sing A Little Prayer" in the second episode to...well, at least a very thoughtful and interesting and honest character.

It had a good sort of first act end.
