My summer plans...

While still doing some work from home, I have enough set up to spend more time on other things. I happened to notice that my 'anime' folder has no fewer than 4,965 files/episodes in it, many I have never seen. As I have mentioned elsewhere, I have issues that tend to trip me up over actually watching any of my shows, even for dvds I have had over 20 years -_-;
While it may mean nothing to people here, I will probably be able to get thru things better if I record them. (I have noticed that I read a lot more now that I keep track of my reading in 'Goodreads' for example).
I pondered where to start, at one point thinking to go thru chronologically.. then I happened to see a folder by itself, and decided to start with 'Mysterious Cities of Gold' as the show I have put off watching the longest. I watched it on Nickelodeon waaaay back when, but always missed certain episodes as it cycled thru the season. As this show has been on my 'to do' list since I first saw it around 1986, it seemed a good place to start. 4 episodes in so far and enjoying it. I hope to keep updating this just to keep pushing myself along.

I have a DVD backlog about that long with things I've owned for almost that long, same with material on my external HD. Farscape is my evening show before I fall asleep for right now, then I need to get back into finishing Twin Peaks. Anime should be in that at some point.

I got little projects to work on, even some panels that i'll go ahead and submit to AWA just on the side that the con may still happen.

I've never watched Mysterious Cities of Gold, but it does look interesting. Also, that theme song is FANTASTIC.

I like this thread idea...I have a lot of plans at the moment, but it's probably a good idea to write them down and keep track of them!

Yeah, I have quite the backlog and always bouncing around here or there. I do find that some way of tracking (I use MyAnimeList) per episode watching of series helps keep track, especially if it is not on a streaming platform. Mostly because I often will start something, watch a few episodes, start something else and never come back to the first thing after quite some time :lol:

Mysterious Cities of Gold has been one of those titles I've heard a lot of good things about but since we didn't have cable until the early 1990s, we missed they part of the heyday of Nickelodeon.

I wish I could watch new (to me) anime while I was working. I often have to focus too much on my work that anime is hard for me to watch new-to-me. Usually if I am watching anime while I work, it's something I've seen six dozen times.
