Yep, it's a day late. And yep, I haven't been posting much this week. It's been a wild week, filled mostly with articles on digital preservation for library class and busy, busy days at work with a hit show. My low level of posting will probably continue over the next few weeks until class is finished the first week of May. I have some reviews of Gus Openshaw's Whale Killing Journal and DC Noir coming as soon as possible.
