Ooooh, look what came in the mail today. It’s the latest collection from my very favorite short fiction writer, Ted Chiang. His Stories of You Life and Others (published 1998) is one of my top-shelf go-to reads – and I believe one of the stories in that collection was adapted to the big screen as Arrival. Anyway, looking forward to reading this…soon.
There’s about a month to go on this production – approximately two weeks shooting the final two-episode block, and then another two on location in The Hammer. And then it’s about three months of post-production.
Tomorrow, I am off to physio for my right arm. The doctor diagnosed it as tennis elbow. My physio guy informed me that “tennis elbow” is an all-encompassing term and suspects it may be a tendon issue. Hopefully, treatment will address said issue eventually. If not, I have a choice between cortisone injections or a stem cell treatment. Just hearing the process of how the stem cells are harvested was enough to make me opt for the cortisone. Or I can just ask Akemi for a nightly therapeutic massage.
Hey, isn’t history fun?

Imagine. If his name had been William Dominovski he could have gone with the whole dominoes theme and called himself Dominator.
