Stranger Things

I finally got around to watching this, and now I want all the meta. Anyone written anything (or seen anything good)?

Imzy invitation, anyone?

Imzy is a new threaded discussion board--I haven't really done much exploring there, but someone on ffa was offering free invitations and I thought I would namesquat in the event that fandom happens to move in that direction. I now have ten nine (they keep adding more as you give them out, apparently) invitations, if anyone wants one. [Please leave the email address I should direct it to if you want one!]

Chuck Tingle is a gift to humanity

I have been reading all about him since the Hugo awards thing (mostly via ffa) and have actually been tempted to purchase some of his oeuvre, especially this most recent one:

Pounded By The Pound: Turned Gay By The Socioeconomic Implications Of Britain Leaving The European Union

"When Alex learns that Britain has decided to leave the European Union, he’s shocked by just how normal everything seems. But the calm doesn’t last as Alex is suddenly accosted by a giant living coin from the not so distant future.

In this horrific future where Britain has left the EU, four story busses lie strewn about the streets of London after a failed plan to cut costs, the Queen’s Guard have been replaced by flying reptiles with machine guns and the River Thames runs red with molten lava.

Now Alex and his handsome sentient pound must travel back to the past and sway the vote for European solidarity, by proving that all you need is love."

I'm actively rooting for him to win that Hugo now.

Signal boost

Since a lot of folks on my flist seem to be on disability, this NYT article on new disability savings accounts may be helpful. (Full text behind the cut for those who can't read because of the paywall):

Captain America

Wow, posting two days in a row--the world might end! Spoilery comments (but mainly reactions, not analysis; I haven't read anyone else's reactions, so more analysis may follow). Read more...Collapse )

Holy fuck, Supernatural

Ok, I honestly didn't think anything would make me watch SPN again, but then I was spoiled about a plot development in tonight's episode and I had to. (And may need to watch next week too!) Read more...Collapse )

Hail Caesar

I enjoyed Hail Caesar much more than I was expecting. I generally like but do not love Coen brothers films; their style of humor is not generally mine, but I laughed quite a lot at this film. Read more...Collapse )

Overall, if you have any love for 50s movies or Hollywood shenanigans from the "golden age of filmmaking," I'd highly recommend it.

Shannara

Was I complaining about the lack of plot and forward motion last week? Clearly they were saving it all up! Read more...Collapse )

Tonight's X-files

Ok, clearly they just should have had Darin Morgan write ALL THE EPISODES. OMG this was legit awesome. Read more...Collapse )

Recent TV

There are too many new shows I want to check out--I always seem to be running behind.

I will probably watch the entire mini-series of the X-Files, but not because I am loving it. Probably spoilery comments on the first two episodes behind the cut. Read more...Collapse )

I also checked out Lucifer, because it sounded like it might be up my alley, but every time Lucifer just barged in on things it tripped my embarassment squick hard. Between that and the fact that I'm not really interested in any of the cast, I doubt I'll keep watching.

I also have very mixed feelings about Legends of Tomorrow. (Spoilers for the first two episodes) Read more...Collapse )

Shannara, on the other hand, seems to have actually hooked me. (Spoilers for the aired episodes so far possible behind the cut). Read more...Collapse )
