Right. First things first: Doctor Who. Because I was travelling for the last two weeks but one, and then sick with the Death Lurgy of the NYC Subway for the next, I watched both of the last two episodes back to back. My reactions to them, respectively, were "meh and ugh and meh and ugh and meh and ugh and mugh" and "WHAAAAAAA?"

Like the nice lady Madame du Hell In High Heels says: Spoilers! )

On a happier fannish note, I just mainlined two books and a novella in the space of 24 hours. That hasn't happened in a while.

The Newsflesh trilogy, which currently consists of Feed and Deadline, follows two adoptive siblings, Georgia and Shaun Mason, as they cover a presidential election for their blog about 20 years after the zombie apocalypse, known in this canon as The Rising. And y'all, it hit me where I live. Political scandal! Internet culture! Surprisingly accurate epidemiology and viral evolution! The response of a society to apocalyptic events! Pervasive yet not cloying references to Edgar Allen Poe! AND ZOMBIES!

SO MANY FEELINGS. SO MANY SPOILERS. SO MANY ZOMBIES. )

Anyone have any recs for Newsflesh/want to babble about what you want to see from the fandom? Because I want to babble about what I want from this fandom. Quite badly.

So right now, I think my Yuletide nominations list has been refined to Newsflesh, The Night Circus, and a third as-yet-undecided fandom, possibly Raging Phoenix, possibly Clueless. I'll trust that someone else will pick up Young Wizards.

So I woke up this morning and pulled my laptop out of hibernation to find that Audacity was open and had a file I only vaguely remember creating. Apparently, when I staggered home from a friend's graduation party last night, I decided it would be a great idea to record a podfic. As one does.

Tip: Don't podfic while drunk.

Better tip: If you're going to podfic while drunk, don't do it in Latin.

My nerdery is probably irredeemable at this point.

Christ.
