Easter holidays with the family have been lovely so far, lots of sunshine except for Friday, hence also lots of hiking through the Franconian scenery. However, the APs are having computer troubles, which means my only internet connection is via my trusty Ipad, which means certain tv will have to wait until I'm back in Munich (which I will be tonight). (Except for Orphan Black, which is now up at Itunes and hence accessible to yours truly. Will be reporting anon.)

This also means I don't dare to go on twitter or facebook for their horrible spoileriness and only very carefully on lj. Once upon a Time especially is something I want to watch sans spoiler. However, there is always fanfic from closed canons, like this wonderful Londo (& G'Kar, Vir, Delenn, Timov) Babylon 5 story. Among many other things, it illustrates why I'm glad B5 didn't end with s4 plus Sleeping in Light, not despite but because Londo is my favourite character. Yes, Londo is in an apparantly good place at the end of s4. But it's one of denial. He hasn't confronted what he did yet, not really. This story bridges the time between Rising Star and The Very Long Night of Londo Mollari in s5, and builds up to the confrontation of his past and responsibility that starts there.

The guy is technology correspondent on The Observer, reviewing a book, The People's Platform, about The Internet. http://www.theguardian.com/books/2014/apr/19/peoples-platform-review-astra-taylor-internet

In this he mentions the 'startling' instances of gender imbalance and asks:
Why there is not more public debate on this?


Okay, maybe it is the particular corners of the Web that I frequent, but yr hedjog notes no lack of debate, comment and protest precisely on this issue. Which suggests to me that Mr N is not looking in the right places, no?

[personal profile] oursin


A writer or painter must be knocked back by shock or suffering that stuns his or her rational mind and allows access to inspiration, whether that bold idea comes from some deeply buried detail of psychology or some external daemon muse.

Also not persuaded that what he describes - wandering around sleepless because nowhere to sleep - approximates to most people's mundane experiences of actual insomnia, where all the conditions for slumber are there, but Morpheus has left the building without stating any time of, or indeed intention to, return.

I just watched the pilot episode of "The One Hundred" on Netflix. It's actually pretty good, if a bit on the typical CW side, aimed at the same crowd who like The Hunger Games and The Vampire Diaries, I think. I was entertained, and not just by the story. I kept seeing familiar faces from shows of yesteryear and also current shows..hey! there's Alessandro Guiliani from Battlestar Galactica! there's Theseus from Continuum (can't remember the actor's name) there's the guy who plays a future cop on Continuum! Several other actors I recognize but don't know who they are. TV shows filmed here in Vancouver tend to be a bit like a lot of British shows, filled with familiar faces. Guess there are only so many actors here.

Watching Netflix is in so many ways so much better than network TV. I can binge if I want to, catch up on shows I've missed, and see shows I never would get to see on TV. I'm a convert.

Easter Wells 2014

Last year I was in London during the Easter holidays, which meant I couldn't follow one of my favourite Easter traditions, to wit, visiting the beautiful Easter Wells in our Franconian country side. This year, I did so one day early, because rain was broadcast for Good Friday (and sure enough, it's raining now), whereas yesterday it was lovely and sunny. And thus, I can share with you my annual Easter pic spam again - the wells in their multitudes of colours and eggs are there below the cut.

In case I shan't be able to post properly again during the holidays: happy Easter to all who celebrate it!

Fashion Advice?

My niece is getting married this June, and the invitation says that the dress is "semi-formal, with lawn friendly shoes advised." Ummm,okay. Perhaps that means I should wear my good jeans and clean tee shirt. Or not. I see shopping in my future, and I do not like shopping for clothes, especially "semi-formal" clothes.

The wedding is going to be held on my sister's back lawn, followed by a "semi-formal BBQ". Should be interesting.

I looked in my closet, and realized I do not own a single dress, or even a skirt. Never mind lawn friendly formal shoes.

I'm delighted to be going to the wedding and to seeing my family, but I now have to shop for an outfit, and for a wedding present.

Clothing stores will never make their fortune from me, I'm afraid. Still, it will be nice to have one thing I can wear to a fancy restaurant or such without feeling like the country cousin. I'm just not thrilled about shopping. It's hard to find something that is not old ladyish or too young for a woman of a certain age.

Maybe I should hire a personal shopper!

Five perfect books for men who never read.

Wow Urgent

So Phallic

Such Manly


Books for men who do not read, we consider, should start off with something even simpler than Ernest H's stripped-down prose. Maybe Thomas the Tank Engine, coz of boyz luv traynz. Nursery slopes.

And we note the inclusion of Finnegan's Wake which is surely the primest of prime examples of A Book Not Read For Enjoyment But For Sense of Superiority And To Impress.

What with this at one end of the spectrum (srs manly bkz for manly menz so they don't look gurlie when reading) and Poems to Make Grown Men Cry*, is it, you know, just possibly rad and subversive to suggest that Men: Not A HiveMind?

*Most being poems that don't confine their tear-jerking qualities to a single gender, honestly.
