If anyone is interested in doing a Fringe gift exchange this year, let me know by leaving a comment here or (preferably) at [community profile] fringe_exchange.

In other news, I'm working on our ♥ ♥ ♥ season three ♥ ♥ ♥ schedule. Look for it by the weekend at the latest. We'll probably skip a week and start again the beginning of October.

Now I'm off to watch "Over There," Parts 1 and 2. I can't believe we're nearly done with season two.

Okay, so even though the first one was slow and weirdly-paced, I'm really digging Outlander. I do sometimes think Claire is the worst time traveller ever, and I run into the same issue I had with The Eagle where I have a hard time sympathising with the English. (Especially today, but we'll see how all that turns out.) I love that they use so much Gaelic and don't subtitle it--it's good practice for me and a nice conceit for the show to make the audience feel as out of place as the protagonist--and the bad guy is truly terrifying. After this season is over I should probably read the books.

I do think I would like to see a crossover between that and Connie Willis' time travel universe. I can just see Claire encountering a travelling historian:

"I'm from Oxfordshire."
"Oh! What a coincidence, so am I."
"I have a lot of opinions and demeanors that don't fit in this time period at all."
"I was noticing that actually. You're the worst time traveller ever. Did your department not prep you AT ALL?"
"Department? What are you talking about? You're from the future too?"
"Well, yeah. 2065, reading history at Oxford. This is for my thesis."
"....1945 so confused whut?"
"Oh! I shouldn't have said that. I had a friend who did Oxford in the 40s though, maybe you know her."

Anyway. Still liking the new digs! And I get to see three of my favourite humans every day. But I sprained my ankle pretty badly about--oh, two weeks ago today, now, and it's still sore though it's a lot better than it was. So I haven't been able to get out and do much, which makes me tired and blah. I want to get out and go for a walk and clear my head, but it is a physical impossibility. Alas.

My housemate is going to stay up and watch the referendum results all night. I don't see the point, as it won't be a sure thing till morning anyway. My opinions aside--and it's probably not too hard to guess which way I'd vote, but I don't live there so it's not up to me--what excites me is how much new voter registration there's been. Whichever way Scotland goes, if 97% of the public turn out to vote (which is the last prediction I saw) then at least it won't be because people didn't care. They do care, and that is how democracy is supposed to work.

Not much too report, really. I have desperately wanted to write lately, and found it just impossible to make words work, which is frustrating and sad. I will blame this on the sprained ankle and resultant lack of exercise and fresh air, because at least then it has an end.

Warning for animal in peril but no actual animal harm )





The cleaners have to come back and clean more - there was just that much dust. But the walls and shelves and windows are good, and I think we can start bringing stuff over from the pantry, the kitchen cupboards, omg help.

There's so much stuff to take to the op shop. There's stuff to take to the tip. There's stuff we're leaving for the Lions. (The Lions Club run a trash and treasure stall in late OCtober.)

Oh, but look at the treasure I found while packing: Dinkum flavour, maaaaaate )

I got yer linkspams. And yer picspams.

- [ profile] reign-soundtrack collates all the amazing folk-pop from season one. I am still enjoying this ridiculous show that has no fucks to give for actual historic events. And Adelaide Kane, who plays Mary, is really great. (And an Aussie! Go Aussie!)

- Speaking of Australia (casting spoilers for Arrow) Cut for fair dinkum Australian language )

- Tiny caravan you can pull with a bicycle - it's a tiny dwelling made from two water tanks. (Tiny dwellings are my fantasy right now. Moving will do that for you.)

- 23 Plus-sized bloggers to follow on instagram. I don't do instagram, nor do I particularly do fashion, but these women are amaze and gorgeous.

- How To Cook Quinoa Perfectly Every Time On The Stove Or In A Rice Cooker With Photos. I have a rice cooker. I have a packet of quinoa somewhere in the pantry which I'm sure to come across in the next couple of days as I clean out EVERYTHING.

- Something to covet: Eco-friendly rainbow sea glass jewellery. Pretty glass pebbles inna tube! Definitely something that I'd hang around my neck. (My sister said they look like jelly beans, which is not exactly dissuasive.)

- Recycled jeans journal. This is something I could actually make. I think I'd like to give it a go. WHEN WE HAVE MOVED. AND UNPACKED ALL THE CRAFT ROOM.

- The back of the Sleepy Hollow DVD describes Abbie as 'feisty'. This offends me; it's so infantilising, and it's not true at all. Abbie is measured and deliberate and not feisty. (Who the fuck is feisty, really? Apart from ponies.)

Here, have a picture of Amandla Stenburg. She's in a band. It's adorable.Now I feel bad for saying she is adorable, because isn't that infantilising, too? )

- This just came up on the Miss Fisher facebook page! Ugh photobucket won't let me resize this and I can't be arsed resizing it myself so just glory in the enormous beauty that is Phryne )

- Lastly, one birthday: Happy birthday to [personal profile] kaffyr, my favourite revolutionary journalist. I hope you have the loveliest of days.

Wow reading post-TS-by-BS Sentinel fic is a really different experience once you've started and abandoned a dissertation and an academic career. Damn.

Although I liked having the spotlight on Peter, and I always enjoy a nice trip to the forest, this episode seemed like filler to me. The only important thing that happened was the scene at the end, which surely could have been worked into the two-part season finale. Additionally, the writers didn't even try to have this story make sense as a mystery/police procedural. It may be of minor interest that "Northwest Passage" was the original name for Twin Peaks, the influential 1991 serial drama created by David Lynch. Well, I've seen Twin Peaks, and this isn't even close.

Writer: Zack Stentz, Ashley Miller, Nora Zuckerman, Lila Zuckerman
Director: Joe Chapelle
Originally aired: May 6, 2010

Synopsis: Still angry, after checking himself out of the hospital, Peter heads to the Pacific Northwest where he becomes involved in a serial murder investigation.

Most Memorable Quote:
PETER: I don't know what to say.
ANN MATHIS: You saved Bill's life, and you tracked a killer - what else is there to say? I wish there was something I could do for you. Whatever your experiences are, whatever you can't or won't tell me about... I think you're looking for meaning in things that... have no meaning.

Post your recs in the comments, please. I'll edit them in. Weirdly, in everything I've read so far, the author wants to reunite Peter and Olivia before Waltenate arrives, thereby eliminating Fringe's best season.

I did love the little reference to Leonard Cohen's gorgeous "Anthem."

There is a crack in everything.
That's how the light gets in. That's how the light gets in.
