I get my Yuletide assignment.

I dive back into [canon redacted].

I get ridiculously excited.

(Possibly I start typing a first draft as fast as my fingers can carry me.)

And then I want to talk about it all the time, because I have remembered how much I love [fandom redacted], and how incredibly cool [fandom redacted] is, and all of the things I want to say about [fandom redacted], and of course I can't say any of those things at all.

*grin*

I expect this will happen once I get a song in mind for my Festivid, too...

Yuletide!

Yuletide assignments have gone out! Without revealing your fandom, how do you feel about yours?

I am very excited about writing for my fandom! But if you are participating in Yuletide and have not yet written a "Dear Yuletide Writer" letter, please write a letter and link it in the link post below. You don't have to get into tons of detail, but a little about what you like about the fandom and maybe a few areas you'd be interested in seeing explored in a story would be nice. Also, if you requested two characters who have an ambiguous relationship in canon, it would be great to know whether you see them as lovers, friends, friends with unresolved sexual tension, etc.

Here's a link to my Dear Yuletide writer letter. Here's a link to the page where you can link to your letters.

Book list )

Linear extrapolation to year's end says 146 books. That's on the orde of 12 books per month remaining and this does, on a superficial glance, seem reasonable. If it'll happen is, well, a bit early to say. However, there's travel planned for both November and December and travel is a typical "drives the book count up" trigger.

This post about code-switching and being a multicultural individual (which is not the same thing as living in a multicultural society, though they often go hand-in-hand) makes my heart sing. ([personal profile] mijra, heads-up.)

It's been years since I've had a crush on anyone, but this short, almost philosophical piece on crushes charmed me. The crush reveals how willing we are to allow details to suggest a whole. We allow the arch of someone’s eyebrow to suggest a personality. We take the way a person puts more weight on their right leg as they stand listening to a colleague as an indication of a witty independence of mind. Or their way of lowering their head seems proof of a complex shyness and sensitivity. From a few cues only, you anticipate years of happiness, buoyed by profound mutual sympathy.

Canada's Jian Ghomeshi scandal has now made international news, so I have no reason to link to the basics (if you are curious and don't already know, plug "jian ghomeshi" into google's "news" feature for the latest). But reading post-firing between the lines of this old profile-but-not-quite-a-puff-piece is really fascinating, and this Do You Know About Jian blogpost is excellent.

This is a great piece about the limits of Dutch-style tolerance when it comes to discrimination issues (and a well-known linguist colleague gets a hat-tip!).

Speaking of Dutchies, the Dutch seem to have invented a potato that can be fed by sea water! I wonder how it tastes?

The Change Blog on "the embarrassing way I got into the best shape of my life." This is EXACTLY how it worked for me, though I put it differently: I exercise every day, but I never do anything for my regular-exercise-time that's at all hard. (Ever. No exceptions. Even when I'm feeling all motivated and eager to do something extra.)

Speaking of exercise by doing only things that are easy for me, I really really want a treadmill desk at work. Thinking seriously about it now!

Also health-related, but on the level of food, This. Is. Fascinating: Apparently, letting freshly cooked pasta cool and then reheating it before eating it makes your body absorb it differently, which is a good trick for calorie-counters, but also for people who would prefer eating tonnes of fibre to tonnes of the kind of carbohydrates that make you feel hungry again right away.

I am about the furthest thing possible from a gamer, but this #gamergate piece (written by a former American football player) is just delightful.

So many linguists are writing smart things about language variation (and against prescriptivism) for popular audiences lately! This one is really good, but this one is even better.

Vox's Todd VanDerWerff thinks you should binge-watch Manhattan now that its great first season is over, and SO DO I. It's my favourite new show of the year.

Yum.

Email from somebody who is research assistant to A Clueless Senior Academic, on a wholly-work-related topic, to my home address.

Am prepared to bet that ACSA said to research assistant, contact the knowledgeable and helpful Dr Oursin with this question about a specific collection of archives -

Without, however, giving the RA my work email contact, so no doubt they googled for me and got my personal website.

RA does not write very well (mutter, grumble, shakes antimacassar, what are young scholars today coming to).

On the surface, the question is, are bits of the collection missing, which yes, there are certain things not there, this is the nature of personal papers, they seldom survive in their entirety -

But I suspect that what the question is REALLY about is concerning a ripperology-type sensationalist factoid about the person in question and have the records of person's (alleged) SEKKRIT DODGY RESEARCH been expurgated? And not why no luv-letters, family holiday snaps, etc.

waking up in LA

Apparently LAX have a rule that no one can stand in the security queue more than 45 minutes. So an hour after my flight arrived they called out all the people who'd travelled on it and moved us to the very front, shuffling us between every queue, even the ones for US citizens only. I was put with a guy I'd never met and told that he was my "new friend" and then the border officer, looking confused about how I'd gone up to his desk alone after chatting with some bloke, separate from the main queue, asked if we had exchanged numbers. I never expected border guards to be wannabe matchmakers.

Anyway, at about 4am by my body clock I arrived at my friends' place, to be greeted with a "How tired are you?", followed by, "Great, we're going adventuring!" We got a cab and went on the haunted hayride and wandered through a dark mazemaze. There were thousands of people and the costumes and special effects were amazing. I was surprised at how many people seemed genuinely scared by third rate actors jumping out at them, but was having a great time anyway.

And it was a good idea. We got back at around 8am by my body clock, I was given melatonin and slept almost uninterrupted for 8 hours. And could have slept more. I'm wary to say that staying awake for 27 hours straight has avoided jet lag, but it may have done .

Mom: What about fun? Don't you want to do anything? How about we make a banana bread? Or...

I really don't get it. I'm bleary as hell. My brain keeps trying to crash. (No, I don't know why. I had 11 hours of sleep yesterday and almost my usual 9 last night. I've just been feeling exhausted for at least the last week. Today is, so far, significantly worse. These things happen.) Mom has dealt with (and watched me trying to deal with and accompanied me to dozens of specialists trying to help me deal with) my sleeping disorders and the problems they cause for decades. How in the name of His Noodliness does she not get the message? It's not hard. "I'm too tired to deal with anything, including normal conversation. Go away."

A year or so ago, I almost had her trained to at least ask if I'm up to conversation before monologing at me with an overwhelming flood of words, but then she went to go visit her uncle on the other side of the country and all the progress I'd made vanished. I'm at a loss here.

Screw it. I'm hitting the couch.

I mainlined all of Alpha House season 2 as soon as it came out. It was incredibly delightful, with a joke complexity density rivaling Arrested Development or 30 Rock. Highlights

-Senator Laffer owning an authentic Bush.

-The whole Mormon soaking thing. A slow build leading to an unbelievably hilarious series of images.

-Senator Bettencourt miserably registers voters in North Philadelphia, knowing that every voter he registers will be a vote against him.

-Janel Moloney as a Republican Senator. Let me repeat that. DONNA MOSS, REPUBLICAN SENATOR. Yelling at Bradley Whitford. Working while on a treadmill in her office... IN HEELS. Wielding a pistol in the Capitol in a bold stand for gun rights.

-EVERYTHING JOHN GOODMAN DID. THE REALITY SHOW. THE BONFIRE. THE DISARMAMENT. THE FRONT PORCH CAMPAIGN. THE CIRCLE OF CIVILITY. THE HUSTLE FOR SEXUAL ASSAULT LEGISLATION. JOHN GOODMAN IS A COMIC GOD.



I'm watching Gotham- I don't think I mentioned, but of course I couldn't resist. It's a pretty bankrupt premise that I'm still waiting to see what the point is, but so far I'm enjoying it despite its sort of pointlessness. Penguin is wonderful, Fish Moony is amazing, and I'm liking that Jim Gordon is so ethically compromised already, though in the wake of this most recent episode it remains to be seen how far they're willing to take that. They brought things to a head much faster than I thought they would, which is a relief, and yet it beggars the question of where the writers think they're taking this show.



I'm watching Agents of SHIELD still, of course. I've been mostly disappointed by S2 so far, though the most recent episode was my favorite by far. Mockingbird is great! Mack is great! I want my FitzSimmons back together. I still wish Agents of SHIELD were the FitzSimmons show. But the show is plagued by the difficulty of juggling all the new characters and character relationships. Coulson/Skye was the heart of Season 1 emotionally, and Director Coulson/Agent Skye in this season has been just completely adrift. There have been episodes in this season that, with all of the new dynamics being juggled, saw the plot get completely botched. The Agent May vs. Agent May fight was great but it was surrounded by probably the most wretchedly dumb writing the show has ever seen, in which any questions about whether May could trust Coulson and vice versa were sabotaged by the stupidity of the dialogue.


I finished the Wheel of Time about a month ago. I'm not sure what to say about it because it is so big and powerful a literary achievement that it's hard to get a grasp on its significance. Ten thousand pages or more, hundreds of characters, dozens of plotlines, all maneuvered, sometimes clumsily and sometimes brilliantly, toward a single climax lasting most of a thousand pages. A climax that manages to tie up an immense number of loose ends without seeming forced, yet certainly not an effortless climax. The Wheel of Time is impressive because it is enjoyable in spite of its many faults, because somehow over the course of its tremendous length, the good outweighs the bad more often than not.

Some observations:

-Brandon Sanderson could never quite get Mat Cauthon right, especially his sense of humor. But he did a pretty amazing job of writing Mat Cauthon, gambling general, in the finale given that handicap.

-The metathematics of the Wheel of Time are pretty central to its point... The heroes of the Horn spinning out in every generation, the Dragon reborn again and again to fight the same battle over and over again against the Shadow, names translated into new myths with every Age, Tel'Aran'Rhiod as the one constant- the world of dreams, the world of storytellers, the world where if you believe something more strongly than someone else, your story is imposed on the world.

Given this, the point of Rand's ending is that he gets to live a life that isn't part of a story now. But I still want that story desperately, because of my love of metanarrative. I want to know what life is like for a messiah after he has provided salvation, after he is not longer ta'veren. I guess I need to read The Name of Wind now, eh?



I've also been lightly bingeing on Meg Cabot, when I don't want to think. All of her non-Princess Diary stuff is weirdly fascinating. She blends genre fiction with teen romance as well as anybody. The Airheads series is really dark and kind of awesome.


And lastly, I did a reread of Jill Pinkwater's Buffalo Brenda, a seminal book of my childhood and an anthem to weirdness and letting your imagination introduce you to new and exciting fun that always makes me laugh and laugh and laugh.

I'm really bad at going to bed at a sensible time. I tell myself that I need to be in bed by 11.30, and with the lights out and trying to sleep by midnight, but as that time rolls around there's always an urgent need to play just one more level of my game, or read just one more chapter of my book. Last night was particularly bad, and I didn't make it to bed until nearly five, which when I'm getting up at sevenish is not something my body can cope with now I'm no longer quite so young as I once was. Usually it's better than that, but one-thirty or two is not uncommon, and I'm starting to resent being tired all the time.

Anyone else struggle with this, and if so, any suggestions more useful than "apply more willpower"?

12 hours until I have to decide if I dare do nanowrimo. My head is filling with worldbuilding ideas, but no plot. Are fictional encyclopedias a thing yet?

More seriously, I'm less rushed off my feet than most years, but I'm busy with lots of stuff, I'm not sure I can devote enough time this month to writing a whole novel. But I do want to devote more time to blitzing on a hobby for a little bit, especially ones where I have something to show for it afterwards.

Who ended up doing yuletide this year?

Is anyone trying NaNoWriMo?

(Usual disclaimer: Every year when people talk about nanowrimo someone gets really defensive and says "everyone who does NaNoWriMo thinks a 50k word unedited novel is a path to instant published success". I don't know anyone who thinks that, if you want to debunk that idea, please go find someone who believes it and don't try to persuade me :))

Santa Olivia by Jacqueline Carey

Oct. 31st, 2014 09:59 am
jack: (Default)
[personal profile] jack
Santa Olivia is an urban fantasy by author Jacqueline Carey, used to writing the high-fantasy Kushiel books. Except it's not technically urban fantasy because the changes are covert genetic modification which is enhanced strength and speed described as "a bit like being a werewolf" rather than magic, but it feels very much the same.

A plague ravages north and central america, and war reignites over the depopulated border territories, and American throws up a permanent military cordon is thrown up north of the border. But it traps in a small town, where the survivors of the plague aren't allowed out either way, and are kept secret from the outside, and the town exists in an uncomfortable symbiosis with the army base.

The story charts one of the genetically modified soldiers, a woman from the town who falls in love with him, but is primarily about her son and daughter.

The werewolf character is described as literally missing the emotion of fear, not typically a good thing, and this is tackled head on in how it might apply to a child of all ages.

There's a recurring boxing subtheme, which I found handled very well. I think that was where I picked up the recommendation; someone said the boxing had been researched and was reasonably realistic.

At Los Angeles airport they seriously need organisational help. They don't have enough kiosks open in one section so they are counting people out of randomly chosen places from that queue - 10 or 20 at a time - and putting them in other queues.

Today [livejournal.com profile] tiger_spot and I were going to make carrot caramels together, as per [livejournal.com profile] rushthatspeaks's recipe, because who wouldn't?

Tragically, we had to abandon the notion due to "lack of time" (aka a marginally embarrassing failure to read the recipe properly beforehand). So instead I baked bread and made sriracha. As usual this has left me with a gruesomely spattered T-shirt, very sore hands and about a pound of ground-up fermented chilli pulp, the residue of seeds and skin and membraneous matter that won't be forced through a conical sieve no matter how hard you hurt your hands. It's still delicious, and usually I put it in a jar and label it and leave it in the fridge to be added to chillies by the judicious spoonful if I ever remember to do that. This time, though, I have a new project in mind. I reckon it'll make a magnificent base for kimchi. And I can even use the same container I fermented the chillies in. Thrift, thrift, Horatio!

But I'm sad about the caramels. Must salvage that intention, some day we're better prepared.

So let's face it, I'm totally in love with Agents of SHIELD spoiler )

2. Sleepy Hollow

I still adore Abbie and Ichabod, but I wish the writers focused more on the things that made Season One so great: the Mills Sisters; this show's man-out-of-time; the sense of place we got for Sleepy Hollow.

Then again -- shallowness alert -- everybody in the young generation remains amazingly attractive. A+ casting. (Didn't hurt that other night Lyndie Greenwood favorited my fawning Jenny Mills tweet. Aw, yeah.)

3. The Good Wife

My favorite show, even though the last two episodes weren't favorites. To be this strong and sharp, this funny and dark, this innovative in the sixth season? Kudos to the Kings. Nomen set omen.

If only they give casting spoiler only ).

Harry Potter et le Prisonier d'Azkaban: Character voices less annoying this time! Rejoice!

Unmade (The Lynburn Legacy, #3)Unmade by Sarah Rees Brennan

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


I think I need to get used to the fact that I will never agree with SRB about what is a good ending to a disturbing dubiously-consensual telepathic love bonding plot, and just embrace the fact that I adore all the twists and turns along the way.

Also: family! Snark! Sarcastic lesbians! Yes good. These books are nowhere near as compelling as the Demon's Lexicon trilogy, IMHO, but they are delightful and I shall read them again.

Marvel Superhero Team-Up anthology: This was full of lulz, from the hilariously homoerotic (Cable and Deadpool visit Intercourse, PA, and lie to one another) to the almost-incomprehensible-without-backstory (something involving Black Panther, hot girls, a white guy, and aliens) and the utterly absurd (three vikings looking like they walked out of Asterix comics try to rescue a maiden's imperilled fiancé and get into several fights. The maiden finds her own fiancé. One of the Vikings, known as somethingorother the Vast, defeats people by virtue of superior body mass). I kinda liked a complex X-men episode which I didn't understand (Wolverine is angry at some guy for breaking some girl's heart and therefore gets him into a fight?), because two of its less-explored bits involved lady superheroes having angst and either comforting one another, or fighting robots. The manpain and bar fights were unnecessary, more ladies crying and smashing robots please.

Also, I am pleased to report that Wolverine informed us that standard NYC business insurance covers superhero damage.

For work, I just finished Silence, a delightful 13th c cross-dressing romance. It's great! The contrast between the prologue, a passionate romantic story involving a guy who killed a dragon and a girl who cured him, and the main plot, in terms of treatment of marriage, sexual and romantic attraction, and... well, women, basically, is fascinating and will go into thesis.

To Read Next: For work, a chunk of the Vulgate Estoire Merlin, which I spent several days trying to track down (ie, i knew it EXISTED, but not what title it had been published under or when), and finally succeeded thanks to archive.org. For funsies... perhaps Burial Rites, which Jo has loaned to me.

The first post-referendum poll for Scottish Westminster voting intentions shows Labour in total meltdown North of the border.

SNP: 52%, Labour: 23%, Conservatives 10%, Lib-Dems and Greens: 6% each.

If this keeps up then Labour are going to get four Scottish seats, Lib-Dems one, and the rest of them will go SNP.

Which means it's remarkably likely that any party that wants power following the election is going to have to form a coalition with the SNP.

This is going to be _hilarious_.

(I have no idea if this level of support will continue. I will enjoy watching the political classes panic about it though.)
