So, Google+ - who's on, who wants to be on, who wants to connect to a person who posts next to nothing?

In other news, I finally finished my essay on the impact of trans vlogs in portraying trans men on film: Part 1 and Part 2. Also, a new QWB episode with a (now outdated) discussion of callout culture and setting in indie games.

Beyond work, I've mostly been watching my way through Master Keaton, the anime adaption of one of Naoki Urasawa's earlier manga. The show really only works because of Keaton's non-detective charm, but even so, I feel like it's the lost gem of Urasawa's work for English speakers (the manga was never officially translated).

So, I did my first round of making some of the MLP: FiM drinks. The most charitable thing I can say about most of them is that I kept them down, though the Applejack was good enough it might be revisited at a later date, using much better cider.

- I now have a sizable 60 Bookmooch points, most of which I don't expect to use anytime soon. Thus, if anyone is after a book and wants me to look for it/add it to my wishlist, let me know. If it comes up, I'll e-mail you for a mailing address to have it sent to. If you're not in the continental US, I'll have it shipped here before sending it out.

- I have not yet decided if I can love Arrested Development yet, but it's trying very hard to win me over. I'll keep with it through Season 2 because I really enjoy me some Portia Degeneres, but I'm not sold on Will Arnett yet.

- Finished both Monster, 1959 and Weight: The Myth of Atlas and Heracles this week. I'm not entirely sold on Monster, for though Maine knows his kaiji, his attempts to expand the metaphor (Humans are the real monsters) fell quite flat. His tone grows increasingly strident through the and the final "twist" bludgeons the reader so hard it could make them to launch the book across the room.

Weight balances its metaphor much better--it is Jeanette Winterson, after all. But there's still a bit of Monster's sermonizing laying about, the indirect lessons of the Atlas myth write so large as to be blinding. Winterson's language, though, is such a delight the reader can endure a few more blows for it alone.

- [livejournal.com profile] re_silvera and I are finally relaunching Queers With Beers! The first attempt putzed out due to lack of time, but we're giving it a second try. The full, one-hour show will be released monthly; the shorter “QWB: Happy Hour Edition,” wherein I explain the history behind and mix various different nerdy cocktails, will be on a bimonthly schedule (as time allows). (Also, I'm not going to edit episodes after this one, which should do wonders for getting stuff out on time.)

It's a basic “queer nerds + booze” format, half queer stuff, half nerdery. The nerd topic of the month is, unsurprisingly, a mutual love of ours: Kamen Rider Hibiki.
