31st-Oct-2014 09:34 pm - defining narrative compassion
talibusorabat: An older white man in a crown "So I've executed all the sorcerers...wait, there's Harry Potter." (Merlin: Harry Potter)
As promised, and in honor of Halloween, I'm launching a series of posts about narrative compassion in horror films.

This has been a research paper fantasy of mine for awhile now. But I'm not an academic, really, and I don't have the discipline to do a properly researched paper. I can, however, write blog posts (believe it or not).

so watch me write )

talibusorabat: Rarely pure & never simple (DS9: Never simple)
Happy Halloween, everyone! Later on today I'll be launching a new little blog project in honor of the season, but first — this week's recommended reading! It turns out I save a ridiculous number of links over the course of a week — seriously, I had 50+ links in this list before I culled it down to about 22. You can find all the links I've saved on my Pinboard. But these are, I think, the truly must-reads.

Links to read over the weekend )

talibusorabat: Interesting - engaging or oh god oh god we're all gonna die... (Quote: Interesting)
I still feel like I don't have a lot to write about, but I have been doing a lot of reading. (ReadKit has been, if you'll permit a little melodrama, an absolute lifechanger.) I have a Pinboard account where I save links I think would be interesting to people, but I thought: Hey, why not make a weekly links post like all the other cool kids on the net? If nothing else, it will give me something to post about. (It also gave me a great excuse to spend an hour messing around in Keyboard Maestro, creating the best macro for putting this post together. Few things make me happier these days than messing around with Keyboard Maestro macros.)

So, for your weekend reading, may I recommend:

17th-Oct-2014 03:58 pm - this post has no point
talibusorabat: A man makes a confused face "I don't like where that's going" (Community: Where thats going)
I feel a weird kind of anxiety whenever I think about blogging again on Dreamwidth. What would I write about? I don't feel articulate enough to write about anything of interest, and my life is pretty dull.

I've been struggling with words overall for months now. I hardly RP anymore. The tags I write keep getting progressively shorter and shorter. The actual quality of my writing is steadily declining. Almost every time I go to write, my mind goes blank. Actually blank.

I'm not sure what the point of this is. Odds are good that I'm just going to post this and then vanish into the deep again — inarticulate keysmashing on plurk, reblogging things without commentary on Tumblr, saving articles on Pinboard. I'm not unhappy with life right now. But I guess I've lost the sense that I have anything worth saying.

I miss it.

Because not everybody reads Bleach for the endless battles and penis contests.

Legend of Korra is definitely better watched with a friend. My roommate had missed the past two weeks, so we watched the last three episodes together and spent the entire time laughing about Verrick as Stephen Colbert. It was great.

But this week's episode...

Honestly, my main thought about this episode?

SKY BISON BABIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

They justified the existence of this episode. I mean, I liked the rest of the episode, but. Come on. Sky bison babies.


Real spoilers behind the cut )
