This year I watched GotG 2 in the cinema, and then went to visit [personal profile] blnchflr, and we watched Ant-Man, CA: The Winter Soldier and CA: Civil War. After that I needed to work through my feelings by reading MCU fanfic, pretty much exclusively, and tons of it. Yesterday I went to the cinema and watched Spider Man: Homecoming, and now I'm reading fanfic for that, too.

Yeah, I guess I'm really back in MCU fandom. I didn't expect that to happen, but I'm not unhappy about it. *g*

Hello dear fellow fen,

I hope you are all doing well and enjoying summer <3

I will be in Copenhagen on the 12th of August (right, [personal profile] blnchflr? ;D), and I'll be travelling with the (by now not so) tiny human. I would love to meet up with you guys, if you're in town!

Noon to early evening works best for the tiny human, but she's usually pretty mellow these days, so we could meet in town and go to a café, or go for a walk around the lakes, or something :)


Mange hilsner og tanker fra Linden :)

Might as well post the movie & TV lists while we're here. Last year I did them by month; this year I collected them for longer in part for Festivids reasons and in part because I was embarrassed for a while at the proportion of sources that weren't for the auction vid. But that is chugging along now.

Averaging a little less than two movies per week, and more TV shows than usual, for vidding reasons )

As with the book list, happy to talk about any of these.

So - on August the 5th Fisketorvet is going to be hosting one of the Pokemon GO Safari Zone events, where you will be able to have: "the opportunity to catch a wide variety of Pokémon in special zones featuring Pokémon originally encountered in the Kanto and Johto regions, including some Pokémon never before encountered in Europe! Additionally, Trainers in attendance will join forces to take on unique and powerful Raid Bosses that will be making appearances at these events."

Apparently, you'll need to register on site.

I mean, I don't even know if any of you are still playing this silly game, but if anybody does - a few hours of wandering Fisketorvet and maybe dinner/lunch and/or a movie, if anything good is on - would anybody be interested?

Readercon was good -- better than expected. I'm hanging out with [personal profile] deelaundry & family on part of their summer vacation. The DS9 vidlet is 9/10 of the way done; still cranking along on the auction vid. Next week is my birthday. This coming weekend [personal profile] disgruntled_owl and I are at long last realizing plans to enjoy an internet-free writer's retreat.

This post is about none of those things, because it's nearly 10 p.m.

For now, it's time to post the mid-year reading roundup!

7 novels, 2 novellas, 8 graphic novels, 6 short story or essay collections, 3 nonfiction, 1 novel-length fanfic )

Right now I'm reading The Grapes of Wrath and the last Assassin book. Down Among the Sticks and Bones by Seanan McGuire came in at the library, but I was disappointed to discover it's about Jack and Jill, not the Land of the Dead; given that it's due in two days, it's probably going back unread, for now.

Between regular curiosity and Readercon acquisitions & recommendations, the "check out next" list has grown quite long. Currently of greatest interest are:

- Roadside Picnic - Arkady and Boris Strugatsky
- So You Want to Be a Robot - A. Merc Rustad
- Technologies of the Self - Haris Durrani
- Stories of Your Life and Others - Ted Chiang
(have all of those in hand)

- Hundred Thousand Kingdoms trilogy - N.K. Jemisin
- Culture series - Ian M Banks (should start before October, for reasons)
- Something by Nisi Shawl, more stuff by Sofia Samatar
- Kindred, Parable of the Sower - Octavia Butler (Parable musical is coming back in October)
- Brown Girl in the Ring - Nalo Hopkinton
- The Smoking Mirror - David Bowles
- Kushiel's Dart - Jacqueline Carey, since it was this month's free Tor e-book and people in fandom seem to love it, although I'm not sure it's my style
- Any of the stack of 7 Nebula awards compilations I picked up for free at Readercon

etc etc etc

There has been so much DOING OF THINGS in the last few months and I’d really like to document it. In an attempt to make sure (a) I actually do that and (b) that it’s not too unwieldy, or rather totally unreadable, I’m gonna steal [personal profile] copperbadge’s Three Things format: three bullet points and an extra per item.
