1. I read Artemis Fowl: The Atlantis Complex twice after it came out this month. It's a good book, but my initial reaction was "there's not enough Artemis in it". He's pretty much absent in Chapters 2 through 5, because he's unconscious for one chapter, Orion Fowl takes over Artemis role for another, and the other two chapters are Butler and Juliet having adventures on the other side of the world.
Yes, Juliet is back. I liked the chapters starring Butler and Juliet, mainly because they let us see the big brother side of Butler that we rarely get to see. For a big scary guy, Butler's just an old softie.
I liked the book better the second time around, though, when I knew what was going to happen.
2. Nancy Drew: Secrets Can Kill Remastered starts being delivered this week, according to the last Nancy Drew newsletter. I'm looking forward to my copy!
I checked out a copy of the original game from the library, just in case. Maybe I should make my own video that compares the original game to the re-release. That could be interesting!
3. I went to the teen meeting last Sunday. One of the girls there is named Capella, but she says I'm the first person to ever shout, "Do it, Rockapella!" at her.
For those of you who don't know, at the end of every episode of Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?, the studio audience would shout, "Do it, Rockapella!". At that point, the band would sing the theme song while the ending credits played. Sort of like this:
I still have Rockapella's "Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?" tape.
