    Looking Back

    1) I loved this article in the latest issue of TWC. It seems to me it's right on the money of how this particular approach to fanworks has been both overlooked and what it means that there's been no focus on it.

    It also has made me want to re-read my own doctoral thesis for the first time since it was finished. Read more... )

    2) Speaking of the TWC article, I hadn't seen this news story quoted before but it was an interesting read. I particularly loved the conclusion that these older fans obsessed with the future were pretty unconnected to the actual future of their fandoms.

    2) Thanks to Paula for sending me a tip on this documentary about the NY Public Library system. Hopefully it will come to Netflix or someplace I can see it.

    3) Thanks to the free Starz week through Comcast, I watched all of the White Princess. I don't have much to say about it as I think it was a watered down version of the White Queen, which seemed to do more with costuming and production values, as well as writing, than this one. Two things are particularly odd Read more... )

    4) I was also able to finish off Black Sails. I think it ended at the right time. Read more... )

    Honestly, I'm pretty surprised that this series hasn't gotten way more attention or credit.

    5) Speaking of Black Sails, a friend has gotten as enthusiastic (perhaps even more so) about it as I have, and I thought of some pirate-style necklaces I could make for her. Here are some, along with a few others I put together recently. Read more... )

    SPIKE: Um ... there's something I got to tell you. About showing you Riley in that place.
    SPIKE: I didn't mean to ... (long pause) Anyway, I know you're feeling all betrayed -- by him, not me.
    SPIKE: I was trying to help, you know. Not like I made him be there, after all. Actually trying to help you. Best intentions.
    SPIKE: I mean, you know, pretty state you'd be in, thinking things are all right while he's toddling halfway round the bend.
    SPIKE: Oh, I'll insult him if I want to! I'm the one who's on your side! Me! Doing you a favor! (And you, being dead petty about it -- me, getting nothing but your hatred and your venom and - you ungrateful bitch!
    SPIKE: Bitch!
    SPIKE: Buffy ... there's something I wanted to tell you.

    WILLOW: You don't know me?
    XANDER: Not a clue.
    WILLOW: But you were just all like, (imitating him) 'oh, hey.'
    XANDER: Yeah, 'cause I thought you were a girl and I'd remember, but...
    WILLOW: (grabs her breasts) Well, I am a girl! I'm ... not sure ... who I am exactly, but...
    XANDER: (yelling) Okay, why was I on the ground? And why are you all staring at me? Is this some kind of psych test? Am I getting paid for this?

    Tell me you want to receive a letter by leaving a snail mail address below. (Comments are screened, of course!) If you don't mind, also mention something you like about getting letters. Do you love decorative stationary? Want a stamp with an animal on it? Or concerning content--tidbits about daily life, a favourite poem, an explanation of a German thing that always puzzled you? A nonsensical drawing?

    1) A friend emailed me Tuesday telling me her father had died the night before. This is no longer an unusual circumstance as she's the fourth friend of mine to lose one or both parents already, while another has a mother in a nursing home and a sixth's parents are in clear decline. I lost my own father at 22 as part of a slow decline and my mother 12 years later very suddenly. Read more... )

    2) I saw a tweet regarding climate change denial which said in response to this, "So, when's the time? Xavier? Zooey?"

    3) The news that students who binge on online course content do better than those who don't hardly seems surprising. Chances are if you're binging you're either more interested in the content or more motivated in completing the course. I also suspect that it's easier to go through quickly because better students find the material to be easier and thus finish quicker.

    4) So it seems that news outlets are finally deciding that the Daily Show's format is one of the best ways to get news across and have started doing comedy videos. And what's even more amazing is that it isn't name checked once in that article.

    5) Speaking of the Daily Show's legacy, at least the creative Emmys are more on point with their awards. I got a particular laugh out of this win: Read more... )

    SPIKE: Okay, is it bigger than a breadbox?
    HARMONY: (smiling) No. Four left.
    SPIKE: So it's smaller than a breadbox.
    HARMONY: (giggling) No! Only three!
    SPIKE: (quietly annoyed) Harmony ... is it a sodding breadbox?
    HARMONY: (clapping and laughing) Yes! Oh my god! Someone's blondie bear is a twenty-question genius!

    BUFFY: Dawn listen to me. Listen. I love you. I will *always* love you. This is the work I have to do. Tell Giles... Tell Giles I figured it out. And... I'm okay. Give my love to my friends. You have to take care of them now -- you have to take care of each other. You have to be strong. Dawn, the hardest thing in this world is to live in it. Be brave. Live. For me.

    GILES: (smiles) I was trying to avoid a scene, really.
    WILLOW: (pulling a brightly decorative 'Bon Voyage' sign out from behind her) Like we'd make a scene...
    GILES: Not you. Me.

    Missing Out

    1) Alert to any The Magicians fans out there -- Lev Grossman did an online chat this weekend with some interesting details about the creation (and adaptation) of the books. Plus, this great quote:

    Janita Burgess: So there we go. Writing fanfic helps you grow as a person. =)

    *levgrossman: I believe that!

    2) Speaking of people who hadn't grown as a person, I watched Young Adult, a Diablo Cody movie with Charlize Theron. It's about a YA author, though there's not a whole lot about the work in the movie as opposed to the ticking biological clock as a central plotline. Read more... )

    3) I find the future predicted for broadcast radio in this report to be entirely plausible (though when they say radio, they seem to be focusing on music, which leads me to wonder if news/talk might not become the dominant form of content). Read more... )

    4) This look at which social media outlets people are getting their news from had some odd conclusions about growth. Granted it singled out the sites where there was double digit growth but Tumblr jumped 8 points in a year which seems rather significant. Read more... )

    5) "A recently leaked Facebook document indicated that the company had been touting to advertisers its ability to determine teens’ emotional state based on their on-site behavior, and even to pinpoint “moments when young people need a confidence boost.” Facebook acknowledged that the document was real, but denied that it offers “tools to target people based on their emotional state.” Have Smartphones Destroyed a Generation?
