FBI criminal profiler Will Graham is recruited to help investigate various murder cases across the Maryland area. Graham works empathetically by assuming the point of view of a killer in order to catch them. This ability’s repercussions puts him under the supervision of Dr. Hannibal Lecter, a well-respected forensic psychiatrist. Lecter is also, it turns out, a cannibalistic serial killer who has killed unhampered for years, and he uses his relationship with Graham to manipulate the FBI and push the boundaries of Graham's fragile sanity.

The food was different this week but still okay.
Played another chapter of the Choose Your Own Adventure game, and did successful talking, even though I have not watched or read much relevant.

Before next meeting there will be a schedule with topics, and possibly posters, so that will be nice. New people would mean new conversation.

But today's conversation was nice.

Catching up on Steven Universe

lannamichaels: "For Shame!" "For the revolution!" (hamilton - for the revolution)
[personal profile] lannamichaels

I've caught up on Steven Universe! The one advantage to being 2 years behind is that this show is very short and airs very rarely so catching up didn't take too long. Although catching up meant diving right in with so much Lars stuff. Apparently it is possible for me to be MORE hating Lars, wow. Sometimes I think "well, it's a kids show, Lars must be representing jealousy and selfish feelings", kinda like how Oscar the Grouch represents grouchy emotions on Sesame Street, except that only explains, like, 1/3 of Lars's plot line. Ugh, please write him off. At the very least, stop highlighting him so much.

I did delay catching up, I admit, because of the whole Rose Quartz = Pink Diamond thing. As soon as I heard about it, that... it was very "I don't like this I don't like this I don't like this". She hid it from everyone! Except for Pearl, who was not allowed to tell anyone! For thousands of years, what the fuck. I know time doesn't really pass for space rocks like it does for humans, but this is still not great. I just felt like it was a giant moral event horizon thing and was worried about how the show would handle it. I also felt like the show did it because they'd written themselves into a corner: they didn't want Steven's mom to be a premeditated murderer (shattering Pink Diamond) so instead, surprise, Rose is Pink Diamond! Who was hiding it from everyone because... reasons? And Pearl has some kind of compulsion so she can't tell Steven and has to manipulate to find a way around it, that makes it even worse. This changes every single thing, turns every single interaction into a lie, turns the last several thousand years of their lives into lies, and I don't like it.

So, yeah. I was dragging my feet on catching up because I lost a lot of wanting-to-catch-up from that stuff.

Anyway, having caught up, some Things: Reactions and unhappiness )

Everyone gets bonus points for being so voluble re: Jane Eyre. *huggles that post*

No one at all suggested that Captain Picard should indeed pass along his wisdom to Cadet Crusher via his genitals. I am extremely disappoint. Next thing you know, y'all will be saying the highlight of Beverly's shore leave should *not* be getting groped by the ghost who used to grope her grandmama. Sheesh.

I will at least follow it up with something less so. LOL

1. Our oven died. We have been in this house not even 8 months yet, and we've had to replace one faucet and the underthings of two additional sinks. The whirlpool bath got stuck whirling without responding to the off button for awhile, and now I'm afraid to use the jets. And now the oven.

We could replace the motherboard for nearly 700 dollars with a 30 day (YES, I SAID 30 DAY, MY FRIENDS) warranty, but screw that noise. So new oven it is. What we have now is an oven/microwave combo, and what we really want is a double oven. Double ovens are even cheaper (400-1000 dollars cheaper) than replacing what we have. However, they are also bigger, so a carpenter is going to have to go into either the cabinet above or below what we've got going on which will cost who knows what.

2. I am so freaking tired of Emma's school being a source of misery and stress for her. Right now, the problem is her chemistry teacher. I've been teaching long enough that not only is it clear to me that this teacher is not a good one, the ways in which she is floundering are clear. First, she's been absent a lot but trying to keep to the same testing schedule despite her missing days. Second, there's a mismatch between her assessment and the content of her course. She explains things in a very elementary way, and then her tests assess those concepts but at a higher level and with different vocabulary than she's used to teach. She's not creating her own tests which is always a potential problem (I mean, I've used tests created by others before, especially when teaching remedial grammar or reading comprehension, so I don't think it's always bad to use them), and when she's asked for explanations or to clarify a concept, she just repeats what she's said before in the exact same words. This tells me that she doesn't really know her subject--she doesn't know it well enough to make an effective assessment, and she doesn't know it well enough to explain a concept in a variety of ways. Anyone who knows a concept well enough can provide multiple examples and approach that concept from a variety of angles. Third and most irritating to me, she has made a pet of several students who I'm assuming go to her church and is rude to the other students.

I called the school today and left an anonymous message for the principal about how this woman gave one student the extra credit material that's supposed to be for the rest of the class and failed to inform the rest of the students and I'm sure that's an oversight and not just her benefiting the student with whom she clearly has a personal relationship outside of class. Bless her heart. /flames on the side of my face

3. I am still waiting to hear back from endo re: labs and steps forward, and it's been two weeks already! I'm ready to move forward on this. I am so tired that it's really bringing me down.

4. I took Emma to her pediatrician while we are waiting for her rheumatology appointment to come around on March 4 because she reported a new symptom, a burning sensation in her arms (and, oh, my friends have I not gone down that rabbit hole because at the end of it is MS and a bunch of other scary shit), and I think he said, I mean I don't know. I can't decide if I'm overreacting, if he was just trying to prepare me for us not being able to figure out what's wrong with her in a quick and easy way and just did that like a dumbass or what. But he basically said that she's anxious and this is probably all psychosomatic, and he's not sure he'll be able to help us at all re: trying to get her accommodations at school because chronic tendonitis isn't really a diagnosis.

I don't know what to do. If we get no answers at rheumatology, he has offered to refer us to a neurologist, which we will do. And then, I think I'm sacking him and trying a new ped if that goes nowhere because SOMETHING IS FUCKING WRONG WITH MY DAUGHTER AND IT IS AFFECTING EVERY FACET OF HER LIFE YOU FUCKHEAD. /flames on the other side of my face

Alright. Better shit to post ahead.

Watching: If Beale Street Could Talk

Feb. 20th, 2019 09:34 pm
white_hart: (Default)
[personal profile] white_hart
In something of a turn-up for the Year of Biopics, tonight we went to see Barry Jenkins' If Beale Street Could Talk, based on the novel of the same name by James Baldwin. Set in New York in the early 1970s, If Beale Street Could Talk is the story of nineteen-year-old Tish, her romance with her childhood friend Fonny and her efforts to clear his name when he is falsely accused of rape by a cop he previously antagonised.

In a week when my social media continues to be full of discussion about racism in the knitting community it felt important to be watching a film about African-American life and the everyday discrimination suffered by black people in the US. It's also a really good film; surprisingly funny in parts, hard-hitting but not grim. Kiki Layne's Tish is a compelling lead, and I loved both Regina King as Tish's mother and Teyonah Parris as her protective elder sister Ernestine. It made me sorry to have missed Jenkins's first film, Moonlight, due to having been off work ill the day we were supposed to see it, and will look out for his future work. (I have also now managed to get it firmly into my head that Barry Jenkins is a talented young African-American filmmaker and not a middle-aged Welshman, only slightly after I worked out that the Steve McQueen from The Great Escape and the Steve McQueen who directed Twelve Years A Slave are different people.)

Next week it's back on track with the Year of Biopics and On the Basis of Sex, with Emma Grundy from The Archers as Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

THE BOOKENING TITLE #17: Record of a Spaceborn Few, Becky Chambers.

Here is what I wrote in 2017, in a never-posted entry draft, when I learnt this book was coming out:

I hadn't realised a third book in the Wayfarers series had been announced! It's coming out next year. Aaaaand it's about a new cast of characters again. BECKY CHAMBERS, YOU'RE KILLING ME. I just want more of the crew from The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet! Stop going, 'There's going to be a sequel! ...and it's not about those guys.'

Stupid authors, inexcusably writing the things they want to write instead of catering exclusively to me.

But I still read it, of course! And I did enjoy it, but not as much as the previous entries in the series.

This book focuses almost exclusively on human characters, and, honestly, I missed the aliens from the other Wayfarers books, although the worldbuilding was still interesting and I'm glad we got to know a Harmagian at last.

I think the main reason this didn't capture me in the way the previous Wayfarers books did, though, was that the viewpoint characters didn't really interact with each other until a few brief scenes near the end. I don't think Tessa ever spoke to any of the other viewpoint characters at all. We were following a collection of largely separate stories, and I'd have enjoyed it more if they had been more intertwined.

Spoilers for Record of a Spaceborn Few. )

Ultimately, The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet made me happy, and a lot of this book makes me sad. I think there's a lot of love in both books, but Small Angry Planet felt joyous, and this book felt more morbid than I was prepared for. That isn't a flaw in this book, but it does mean I like Small Angry Planet more.

I did enjoy my time with Record of a Spaceborn Few, though, and I liked the ending scenes a lot. A solid ending can do a lot for a work of fiction, provided you enjoy the rest of it enough to get there!

I have spent the last couple of weeks either writing fic for ficathons, or signing up for ficathons. I know exactly why I'm doing it - April looms ever larger and frankly I'm going to keep myself busy with whatever works at this stage - but I need to pace myself and make sure it's a positive distraction rather than having a meltdown later on. I'm signed up for [community profile] space_swap  and [community profile] smutswap  and will also be doing the [community profile] waybackexchange . The others on the horizon are [community profile] ssrconfidential  and [community profile] hurtcomfortex . Probably others? I know this means I'm not writing as much for 'till human voices wake us' but I am thinking about it and letting it percolate. I still want to finish it soon. Maybe not before Endgame - there's a bit too much to go of the fic for that - but soon. I feel like this is the trickiest part of the fic, where I'm closing out one section and moving it into the next section, and I need to make sure I'm absolutely certain of where it's going before I commit to it. It's good practice I suppose, but it is tricky to manage.

I haven't seen Umbrella Academy yet. It'll be a Sunday afternoon watch I think.

DC's DCeased preview has me shuddering. I mean it looks amazing, but also NO NO NO. (tw: scary clowns. Er, the other scary clowns.)

*shows up fifteen minutes late with raktajino*

I've been rewatching bits of season 1 of DSC, and keeping up with season 2, and…I have a lot of thoughts and feelings about Star Trek. It's been a while since I've had a lot of feelings about Star Trek. Rewatching the first season now, I find myself having a lot of thoughts about Lorca, and the way that it's increasingly clear that the first two seasons were designed to complement each other.

Thoughts about Lorca, Star Trek, and the mirror universe )

Prologue Here

Sam’s memories of previous leaps were always vague and filled with gaps, if they existed at all. But he knew that he’d recently leaped into one of the men in Tom’s SEAL squad in Vietnam and stopped Tom from getting killed.

His older brother was still a young man in his early twenties then, sharp, strong, naturally athletic. He was a confident leader, a crackerjack officer and a good man. The Tom Beckett whose reflection he stared at now was older by about a decade, but the added years were the least jarring of the changes. Tom’s sandy brown hair was unkempt and longer than Sam had ever seen him wear it, his face was gaunt, almost skeletal, and the dark, hollow look in the hazel eyes made Sam’s blood run cold.

the rest under the cut to spare my f-list )
lightbird: (QL: Sam & Al Leap Background)
[personal profile] lightbird

Al once told him that from the Project side of things often several days – even up to two weeks – passed between his leaping out of one life and into another. But to Sam quantum leaping seemed instantaneous; one scene faded as he was yanked away, a new one immediately materialized and he had to get his bearings all over again. A moment ago he was oppressed by stifling heat and humidity. Now icy wind stung his face and seeped into his bones. Clinking beer bottles and boisterous laughter were replaced with a cacophony of honking horns, humming engines and ominous-sounding coughs.

The surgical center called this morning with scheduling information: they want me there at 1 p.m., and it's okay to have a "light meal" beforehand. I'm also supposed to take my regular morning medications at the usual time.

Also, my doctor's office doctor sent me the lab report on the pre-surgical blood testing, with the comment "looks good."

1. Pimpage! It’s Browse Week at [community profile] fandomtrumpshate! (The auction goes live next Tuesday, February 26.) You can find all the offers at [personal profile] fth2019offerings. The sticky post at the top tells you how to search the tags if you’re new to DW; you can search by fandom or creator, as well as search multiple tags. My offer is here.

2. Lunch(es)! On Monday we had lunch with friends at Zebb’s. (They both work at public schools, so we generally go out on Mondays when they have a holiday.) It was a nice time, if you don’t count the fact that I had some car sickness. (We had planned on driving so I could sit in the front seat, which helps, but there was snow and they have a 4-wheel drive vehicle, so they drove.) I took a dramamine before leaving the house, had some peppermint with me (gum and essential oil), cracked the window, and closed my eyes, which kept me from getting too sick, but I was happy when we got home.

Today I had to be home early because they turned off our electricity to work on the lines. Mainly, I wanted to make sure the heat came back on without a problem (we have a coal stove, but we had to unplug it and I don’t know how to restart it, so oil furnace it is). When I was at the bakery having breakfast with my friends, I ordered one of their salads to take home. When I complimented the one owner on the chocolate-covered strawberries from last week and said that his mother could make more if she wanted to *hinthint*, he told me that they were going to make more. I didn’t realize he meant they were going to make more ~today! Obviously I couldn’t leave without one four.

3. Knitting! I had my first knitting class last Friday. I got a few rows done that evening, did a few more on Saturday, and a couple more last night. It’s taking me a bit to get the hang of holding the needles. Right now my output can be summarized as ‘a hot mess’. Somehow on Friday I went from the 30 stitches the woman cast on for me to 39! Also, I’m using a thin yarn, and I’ve been told that it’s easier to learn on a thicker yarn (which I have since purchased). I know I’ve missed stitches, etc, but since this is merely for practice, I’m not worrying about that. I’m more concerned with getting my fingers to do what I want them to!
