And now for something a little different—a video rant about “literary fiction” and “genre fiction” (both literally meaningless labels). Emo!Ten, our cardboard cut-out of the Tenth Doctor (he survived a near collision between Sasha, the small Honda Civic, and a MARTA bus; his sadness attracts disaster), looms over my shoulder, Demora Pasha’s fan is really loud, and our window of dramatic lighting, well, lights dramatically.
Incidentally, my voice is half an octave lower in my head.
I finally finished Marriage, a History and Wicked this week; I’ve requested Sabriel from the library, considering that Tim Curry narrates—he’s the patron saint of my college’s bad movie club, so I’m obligated. I received Dark Jenny in the mail; it comes out Tuesday, so I’ll be finishing it up to try and have the review up tomorrow! Wish me luck.
