Don’t Mind the Fire
Greetings, friends.
I guess we’ll call this a bonus issue, since it’s sent only a couple of days after the first one… The regular schedule will definitely be weekly, but I’m just having way too much fun putting these together right now. I hope you enjoy it.
Until next week (for real this time),
Rian.

📖 Quote of the week
From Red Sister by Mark Lawrence:
“Blood is always a failure.” Sister Tallow’s glance flickered to Nona. “Often the failure of the sister who holds the sword. Sometimes of those who send her into conflict. Or sometimes the failure lies years back, in the hands of someone who missed an opportunity for peace, who saw a chance to avert a distant violence and did not take it … or who failed to see that chance.”
📺 Video of the week
Alex Honnold Breaks Down Iconic Rock Climbing Scenes
This video from the Free Solo guy is so good. He looks at how realistic climbing scenes are in movies. I knew Vertical Limit was bad, but I didn’t realize it was this bad (I can’t help it, I still love the movie though). I also forgot that Star Trek V has an excellent climbing scene.
