[personal profile] tiamatschild
I am watching all the Ace Mcshane and the Seventh Doctor serials I have not previously watched as well as rewatching all the ones I have, which, as is my usual, crossover obsessed wont, has led to me brainstorming to myself fellow bisexual working class weirdoes Ace should totally meet. Not very seriously. I haven't actually been trying to fill out a list to write Five Things fic with or anything. Just. As I do stuff.

Which means that this morning I ran across someone's list of Things They Love About Eliot Spencer and thought "Leverage! That's right! Leverage! Ace! The OT3! omigosh YES."

The only problems here are that A) Doctor Who is canonically fictional in the Leverage universe (thank you, Alec Hardison, you total nerd) and B), it has to be the post canon OT3 version of the team because I'm not sure what would happen if Nate and Seven were ever in the same room, but I'm pretty sure it would be extremely ugly. Possibly somewhat funny. But not funny enough to ever justify the rest of it.

My sudden burning desire to see this happen outweighs that though, for all kinds of reasons, I mean, just consider it!

I GOT IN!

It's challenge time!

Comment with Just One Thing you've accomplished in the last 24 hours or so. It doesn't have to be a hard thing, or even a thing that you think is particularly awesome. Just a thing that you did.

Feel free to share more than one thing if you're feeling particularly accomplished!

Extra credit: find someone in the comments and give them props for what they achieved!

Nothing is too big, too small, too strange or too cryptic. And in case you'd rather do this in private, anonymous comments are screened. I will only unscreen if you ask me to.

Go!

kangeiko: artic ice with the sun in the background, and a sledge being dragged by dogs (TG adventure)
[personal profile] kangeiko
Trying to be better about posting here rather than just getting very excited about the new comm we launched ( [community profile] retrof1, in case people are that way inclined).

So today is when the realisation hit of just how much work I still have to do, despite the huge, huge effort of the last few weeks. It feels completely insurmountable. Also not helped by people buggering off at 4.30pm on the dot, which makes me feel like an idiot for working well past 10pm most evenings trying tog et stuff done. I just - I fly back from Iraq tomorrow evening, and there is still so much to do, and I asked people to work a little later this evening and it was like I'd demanded a kidney. I'm really not impressed. Come on, people - I'm here to help, but not to do your jobs for you.

Anyway, I suppose it's out of my hands. I'm doing the best I can, and the best I can manage is... well, it's not ideal, at any rate. But it's better than nothing, anyway.

Meanwhile, I've been reading the New Who adventures and feeling very meh about the ones I've read thus far. I'm currently halfway through Transit by Ben Aaaronovich and feeling v uninterested in it. My desire to quit is mitigated by the fact that it's either that, or Foucault's Pendulum, and I don't have enough brain space left for Eco at the moment.

I think I'm going to treat myself to a stay in the airport lounge on my flight back. Six hours in Amman, and on no sleep - should be another fun flight. :/

Welcome to our Events Calendar roundup for the month of April! The Events Calendar can be found on the OTW website and is open to submissions by anyone with news of an event. These can be viewed by event-type, such as Academic Conferences, Fan Events and Fests, Legal Events, OTW Events, or Technology Events taking place around the world.

  • Eastercon: Dysprosium. Held every Easter weekend since 1955, Eastercon is also known as the British National Science Fiction Convention. This year's event is April 3-6 in London, England. Guests of honor are Jim Butcher (Dresden Files author), author and filker Seanan McGuire, steampunk artist Herr Döktor (Ian Crichton), and longtime fandom contributor Caroline Mullan. The event also includes the Dalekdrome, in which competitors first making over a remote-controlled Dalek and then running it through an obstacle course.
  • It's the second run of the Hobbit Big Bang, with artist claims opening April 4. Crossovers and AUs are allowed, but stories should focus on The Hobbit (books, films, or RPF). Posting runs from May 10-24. (Share your experience with big bangs on Fanlore.)
  • Nullus Anxietas V, April 10-12 in Sydney, Australia, is a fan-run convention for fans of the Discworld novels and other works by Sir Terry Pratchett. The program has several events that appear each time such as the Gala Dinner, "Maskerade," Charity Auction, Guest of Honour Interview, and "Terry's Bedtime Stories."

Help out a researcher!

This month we have received a request for research participation from Jean Drzyzgula at St. Mary's College of Maryland. As part of her thesis for an undergraduate degree, she is conducting research on *fandom and identity exploration* under the oversight of Dr. Iris Ford.

The purpose of this research study is threefold: to understand the role participation in media fandoms has on the development of personal identities for young MOGAI (LGBT, Queer) people; to understand the extent to which participation in media fandoms has impacted participants’ identities; and to understand how these trends impact individuals participating in them.

Note that survey participants must be at least 18 years of age. You can find the survey online; a consent agreement is included on the main page.

Contact information is jadrzyzgula [at] smcm [dot] edu and Icford [at] smcm [dot] edu.

The final paper and any future works will be shared with the community, and some limited portions of the data set collected may be available depending on if it is judged to not impact confidentiality (and with advisor approval).

If you have requests for research participation, please view our policy for inclusion at our website.


The OTW encourages anyone to submit an event that's not already listed, and to check out the calendar throughout the year!

The Quick
This is a book that I found very hard to rate, because I found it a pretty compelling read, and I think in many ways it was a good book, and yet every time I wanted it to go one way, it went the other, so that by the time I finished it only the fact that it was a library book stopped me from dropping it in the bath in sheer frustration. It's also a hard book to review without spoilers, which is why I'm reviewing it out of order and under it's own cut. spoilers ) So in conclusion: The Quick might be a good book! I think I liked it! But I also hated it.

Cold, cold weather this past week, perfect for reading.

What I Just Finished Reading

What the Robin Knows: How Birds Reveal the Secrets of the Natural World

What an excellent book this was. Some of the concepts I may have already been subconsciously familiar with, but it was very enlightening to see them explained so clearly, and with such vivid examples. Learning to recognize bird behaviors is a skill that is important to me, but the other applications Young describes - "to recover latent instincts and develop them in to new patterns and habits of perceptions and awareness; to trigger keener awareness, deeper connection, and motivation to use them" - wow. So much of what I'm learning here can be applied to my mindfulness practice, in addition to understanding what's going on in my own new back yard!

I wish our current weather (cold, so very cold for spring) was more conducive to the principle of finding a sit spot in my yard, and spending time there each day! That will have to wait a bit. I may actually buy a paperback copy of this, to keep it handy for review along with my other bird guides.

Snake Agent, by Liz Williams.

Ok, I know I said after Demon's Lexicon that I was going to take a break from demons, but the premise and setting of this book – supernatural and mystical investigations! In Future Singapore! - was so unique that I had to go for it. This was a lot of fun, with very engaging characters – I've already put the next book in the series on my To-Read list.


The Assassin King, by Elizabeth Haydon

I though this was a “Shared World” part of a series, not a “If you haven't read the previous books you will be helplessly lost” series, so I had to give up on this one, because I had no idea what was going on. Also: annoyingly jargon-filled.

What I'm Currently Reading

Damiano, by R.L. MacAvoy.

One of the fans whose interview I transcribed for the Fandom History project told a very moving story about her experience reading this book, how the character's redemption arc resonated with her very strongly in her own spiritual life, and I was intrigued enough to select this for a Women of Genre Fiction selection. I'm about 2/3 of the way through, and no sign yet of anything requiring a redemption arc. Huh. So I asked [personal profile] edoraslass, who had given this all kinds of stars and love in her Goodreads review, and she helpfully pointed out that it was a three-book series. So....

What I'm Reading Next

… two more Damianos coming up!

A friend once asked me (this was some years back): "Do you feel you're getting old sometimes?"

I thought about it, and conceded, "Yeah, my knees hurt now and then."

And then to my surprise she admonished me for "feeling old", and said that age was just a construct, or words to that effect, and that I was letting myself down by not being mentally strong, etc, etc. I forget what else.

It didn't make sense. My knees did hurt from time to time - and they creaked sometimes if I'd been crouching in the same position for too long. So I didn't see what was the reasoning behind the ranting that I was "feeling old"; what was I to say, my knees didn't hurt?

Years down the road, I definitely feel the years. I can't bounce back from a bout of flu the way I used to. Met a friend (another one) for coffee, who was shocked to see how pale I looked and how much weight I'd lost. Hm, now that she mentioned it, I did think earlier that it was pretty nice not to go into gyrations to fit into my favourite dress (since I still felt a bit raw), but was that why?

This post is yet another example of my post-fluitis.

The Enid review

Apr. 1st, 2015 01:49 pm

As advertised, my friend Dave and I went to see The Enid last night.

For those who don’t know, The Enid are a progressive rock* band who trace their history back to the early 1970s. The band was started by Robert John Godfrey, who was a collaborator with the band Barclay James Harvest back in the day.

The show was at the Union Chapel in Islington, which is about three quarters of an hour from where I live. I’d never heard of this venue until Dave told me we were going there, but it turns out to be a Congregational chapel built in the 19th century.

Dave learned from FB that it appeared that they were opening the balcony. Dave is phobic about heights and I’m not good at stairs, so Dave rang the venue and asked that we be allocated seats downstairs. This turned out beautifully, we were given seats in the third row, at the end of a row. Brilliant! I noticed they’d done the same for two people in wheelchairs and a few other people who were mobility challenged.** Score one for that venue.

The concert itself was fantastic. I’ve seen The Enid before, and they always surprise and never disappoint, but this show was the best I’ve ever seen them. For one thing they’ve acquired a new singer, a bloke called Joe Payne. He’s…amazing. It was a very different concert than the time Dave and I saw them in Birmingham with an orchestra and a choir a couple of years ago, and on the whole I preferred it.

Dave can identify which songs they did and from which albums. I can’t. I know when I’ve heard a song before, but not usually which album it came from. He can sometimes tell when they last played that song in concert, which is well impressive. And The Enid is not the only band he follows, it’s one of a very large number.

Back to Joe Payne. One song they did that I can name is, “Something Wicked This Way Comes”, from the album of the same name. I’ve heard the song before, many times obviously because it’s on the album and also because they’ve played it in concert, but last night’s presentation of it was absolutely marvellous. The versions I’ve heard before had Robert John singing, and he’s good, but Joe Payne is breathtaking. I’ve heard singers playing leading roles in musicals who were not as good as Joe; watch that guy, if raw talent is any indication, he’s going to be big.

Anyway, you can find a video on YouTube here: https://youtu.be/gXOvyfLsQMI of Something Wicked and Dark Hydraulic. Not as good as being there, but gives you an idea.



*Progressive rock is that area of rock where rock meets symphonic music.
** Enid fans are getting older. Many were obviously my age and I’m 52.

Erupting Volcanic Lightning!

Apr. 1st, 2015 11:00 am
[syndicated profile] badastronomy_feed

Posted by Phil Plait

Your daily dose of awe: a volcanic eruption showing lava bubbling out of the caldera, a towering plume of ash, and lightning coursing up the ash cloud.

Yeah. Tell me you’re gonna see something cooler than that today.

The volcano is named Colima, a 3,800-meter-high stratovolcano on Mexico’s west coast. It may be less famous than its bigger brother Popocatépetl, but its Mexico’s most active volcano at the moment; it’s erupted dozens of times over the past few centuries, including a big one in 1913.

It erupted again in 2005, and then, in November 2014 it started a series of eruptions that are ongoing. Photographer (and amateur astronomer) César Cantú took this shot on Sunday night. The six-second exposure blurs the ash cloud a bit but caught that amazing lightning blot.

Here’s another shot:

Lightning in ash clouds is relatively common. It’s thought to be due to static charge building up as the rough, glassy particles of ash rub against each violently in the plume. I’ve been to a few volcanoes in my time, but only one active, and nothing like this. Seeing lightning in an erupting ash cloud is now on my must-see list.

Cantú’s work has been featured on my blog many times; below is a list of articles I’ve written about his work. You can follow him on Facebook, too.

FIND



If I had any pull with God, everything you need
would appear right now in front of you.

A door would open and inside it
a rose-strewn path, the yearned-for embrace.

I'd take the broken pieces of the afikomen
and restore them as if by magic.

But that isn't how it works. God isn't
a diner waitress saying what can I get you, hon?

That's why our sages taught: a clay vessel
is purified when it breaks and is glued.

A human heart, charged with a lifetime's losses
becomes real when lovingly mended.

All I can do: ask God to cradle your heart
in Her own hands and make you whole.























 


Blogexodus5775

For today's #blogExodus prompt, "Find," I decided to write a poem, since today is also the first day of NaPoWriMo (National Poetry Writing Month.)

The afikomen is the ceremonial middle matzah, broken during the seder. Half is hidden, and the seder cannot conclude until it is found.

The stanza about our sages and a clay vessel is a reference to classical teachings about how to make a clay vessel which has become tamei (charged-up or "impure") become tahor ("pure") again.

To me that teaching has always held an internal / emotional resonance too.

 

Money mistakes in your 30s

Apr. 1st, 2015 11:00 am
[syndicated profile] getrichslowly_feed

Posted by Suba Iyer

This article is by staff writer Suba Iyer.

As I venture into my early 30s, I think I’ve become pretty careful about our finances. I certainly know not to continue on with the mistakes I made in my 20s like buying more car than I can afford or not paying myself first. But something happened last week that made me go, “Uh-oh.”

Now that spring is here, I went shopping to look for new clothes for my daughter. After a while, my husband looked at all the stuff and asked me, “Don’t you think you’re going a little overboard here? Why so much stuff?”

I started to justify why we needed each item. And after a bit, I realized I was actually repeating myself: “Well, this looks pretty. And this is very pretty.” I could see the look on my husband’s face. I just stopped. I had to admit that she only needed half of what I was going to purchase. She is a baby after all; she doesn’t care about being pretty, only about being comfortable. Uh-oh, I am making new money mistakes!

When we reach our 30s, many of us have our careers on a steady path; most of us are married or are getting married; some of us have started traveling more, purchased a house and might even have a baby or two. But it’s not a time to become complacent with our finances. If we aren’t careful, we can make new money mistakes.

I guess that is true for every stage in our lives — we keep making new mistakes. But we can also keep learning from each other and avoid as many mistakes as we possibly can. Isn’t that why we read this blog in the first place?

So here I am, compiling a list of potential money mistakes my 30-something peers and I should avoid. On the eve of my 40th birthday, I don’t want to be thinking “I wish someone had told me this 10 years ago.” I will start with the one that served as my wake-up call and got this thought process going for me in the first place:

  1. Buying too much for your child. I think every parent makes this mistake. In fact, compared to what I see other moms in my local mommy groups purchasing, I seem to buy very little. And what I buy is more than plenty. So I can only imagine how much money people are spending on cute clothes, shoes, blinking and screaming toys, even educational apps. I (and other parents) should just save that money and start a college fund.

  2. Getting married without talking about finances. Maybe money is a touchy subject for people; but by the time you have reached your 30s, you should be more capable of negotiating difficult discussions. It is extremely important to be on the same page with your spouse when it comes to money. Otherwise, it can become a major source of conflict in your married life and potentially the reason it ends in divorce. Talk about finances with the person who will share your life and develop your monetary goals together.

  3. Still having consumer debt. I have heard of excuses like “If only I were single, I would have paid off all this debt” or “I was paying off my debt, but we had a kid.” There will always be some new event in life; some exciting, some unfortunate. But if we choose to ignore our debt, it can become an obstacle that prevents us from pursuing opportunities that might better our lives. Take charge of your debt! Budget aggressively, earn as much as you can, and pay it off.

  4. Buying more house or car than you need. A lot of people move when they have children, thinking they need more room with a kid than they did before. They take the same approach with cars, trading in their sedan for a big SUV. Why? We don’t need giant homes or huge cars to raise kids!

  5. Keeping up with the Joneses. Speaking of giant homes and huge cars, people of all ages seem to be afflicted with the desire to keep up with the Joneses — but unfortunately, it seems especially common among 30-somethings. Maybe it’s the subconscious messaging of television advertising or the desire to be accepted in our social groups; but no matter what the reason, it is important to keep our spending within our means, forego lifestyle inflation, and chart our own financial course.

  6. Ignoring a will. If you have a significant other or any children, please make out a will or set up a living trust. It may be unpleasant to think about death in your 30s; but you don’t want your loved ones to go through the hassle of fighting the State to get what is theirs. While you’re at it, get a durable power of attorney and healthcare power of attorney too!

  7. Not having enough life insurance. Again, no one wants to think about death; but if you have anyone that depends on your income or your time, you need life insurance. And you have to get enough life insurance to cover the needs of your dependents, not just the minimum offered by your employer.

  8. Not having long-term disability insurance. In your 30s, the chances of becoming disabled and not being able to work are higher than death. Most people have long-term disability insurance from their employer; but you should calculate how much you need and then purchase supplemental insurance. When it comes to insurance, life or long-term disability, it is better to get your own policy and not depend on your employer (unless getting your own policy is prohibitively expensive for some reason). If you change your job, you will lose that insurance and then replacing it will be that much more expensive. This type of insurance is less expensive in your 30s than it is later in life.

  9. Not re-evaluating your retirement goals. In your 30s, you have a new lifestyle; hopefully your income is different now than it was 10 years before when you started saving for retirement. If your income has increased since you formulated your retirement goals, have you done the calculation on how much you need in retirement with your new income and lifestyle? If not, now is the time.

  10. Not paying attention to how your investments perform. You might have started your 401(k) with a very basic money market fund with the intention of learning about investing and doing a better job. Have you done that? Have you studied how your investments are performing and adjusted them based on your current goals and tolerance for risk? If you need help, now would be a great time to find a fee-only financial planner and see if you are on the right track.

  11. Neglecting your children’s education. If you have a child and intend to pay for at least part of their education, you need to start putting money away for college now. At the very least, start saving money in an online savings account until you fully research college savings plans.

  12. Putting too much importance on your children’s education. You should save for your children’s college tuition but not at the expense of your own retirement. Make a budget, fund your retirement, and then find ways to save more money to fund college.

  13. Going back to graduate school for the wrong reason. I am all for getting a graduate degree if it propels your career to new heights. But if you are going to graduate school after a job loss to avoid job-hunting or if you are going to grad school because you can’t find a job with your undergraduate degree — particularly if you have not researched job prospects after a graduate degree — then you are making a huge mistake.

  14. Not diversifying your income. It used to be that you stayed loyal to your employer and in return they took care of you. For example, each of my parents had one job throughout their working years. When they retired from their jobs, they each had a pension. But since that isn’t the case today, we need to find ways to maximize and diversify our income. If you have a hobby that can make some money, pursue that. Try to generate income from sources other than your job. After all, job loss is no longer an uncommon occurrence and the only person who cares about your future is you.

Those are the mistakes of which I am aware. Some of these are things I notice myself doing and others I see happening with my friends. But unlike the mistakes we are likely to make in our 20s, these are born more from complacency, not necessarily naivete. The good news is that we 30-somethings can wake up, take charge of our finances and still hope to achieve our financial goals.

What mistakes do you think people should avoid in their 30s? If you see yourself in any of these items, do you see a way to change what you’re doing?
