The Baron In The Trees by Italo Calvino?
Love in the New Millennium by Can Xue?
An Individual Note by Daphne Oram?
This Is Supposed To Be A Record Label by Frans De Waard?
Actually those are all likely to be Good Books, but I'm realizing none of them feel like home tonight.
So I'm going to read from the next section of part one of the Mahabharata (the long-ass full translation) and bide my decision.
This has been the Nov 20th edition of A Too Long Toot.
I had a really good streak of reading great books going, then I hit a patch of baddies.
I just decided the one I'd picked up yesterday is a non-starter, couldn't bring myself to drag my way through another baddie... I have a hard time deciding to put something down after I started.
So tonight I'm in book limbo -- very much wanting to dive into something good but completely undecided as to what.
I guess I'm doubly confused about this because I've seen a quote from him circling where he calls out superhero comics for racist, misogynistic and childish ideation, all of which are present in spades in this LoEG comic. Maybe he... got better? I mean kudos for the sentiments but I don't see the walk being walked, just the talk being re-tooted...
I read the first League of Extraordinary Gentlemen last night. The writing was obvious and tedious, the story leaned entirely on sex and violence and gimmicks but not in any interesting way. The sex and violence often became rape or suggestive of rape. The only female character exists entirely through the gaze of the men.
He’s supposed to be a great writer? Am I missing something?
I remember feeling similar about Watchmen when I read it in high school...
I'm in the middle of a greenfield work project that uses almost no JS and yet replicates a bunch of fancy functionality previously implemented in several MB of JS. This is both an exciting and slightly terrifying process. (Maybe terrifying is going too far, but nobody ever got fired for buying IBM and I just wrote a purchase order for a fleet of NeXT cubes.)
