  1. No cops at pride, just Florence Welch with a sword. https://knowyourmeme.com/memes/no-cops-at-pride Glad to hear this is happening.
  2. I don't know that I'd put Abercrombie on par with Hobb in terms of characterization. I do think Daniel Abraham is much closer, with his sharp focus on characterization. I'd say they both lean more towards character studies than plot, but they also write great stories in cool worlds. I may be biased though because they're my two favorite authors
  3. I definitely miss 5-10% of the dialogue, and I think that's making me struggle to understand what's going on beyond the surficial stuff. Interesting that they just don't have subtitles, I thought it was me that couldn't figure out how to enable them on my Roku lol
  4. I got pfizer #2 this morning and was not prepared for diarrhea (anything but that!). Arm got super sore right off the bat, and I'm now starting to get achey all over. 100% worth it.
  5. There are different cultures in the US, and it's based entirely on if you say pop, soda, or coke.
  6. I just finished clone wars and am starting on rebels. What good shows! I can't believe I slept on them for so long! Had been feeling pretty burned on star wars after the sequels and this made me excited about it again. As someone who grew up on the prequels, what I loved about clone wars is that it took the best parts of the world Lucas created for the prequels and fleshed those out in (mostly) the best possible ways. Also, I never, EVER suspected Anakin could actually be likeable! What a truly great show. Ahsoka's theme has been stuck in my head for days.
  7. I've also seen the 2005 adaptation - very good! still need to watch Handmaiden
  8. Based on the Best of 2020 thread, I picked up The City of Brass and finished it in 2 days. Looking forward to completing the trilogy in the next couple of weeks!
  9. I read more (new) books this year than I have in a long time, and found a lot of good ones. (1) The Broken Earth trilogy by N.K. Jemisin - if I had to pick one from the trilogy, it'd probably be book 1, but what a fantastic read. As someone who studied geology in school, it was really cool to learn more and more about the magic system. (2) Under Heaven by Guy Gavriel Kay - I hadn't read a GGK book since high school and doubt I appreciated them as much then as I would've now. Anyways, this book stayed with me for a long time; beautiful, poetic, bittersweet. (3) Uprooted by Naomi Novik - I was on a fairytale streak in late 2019, finishing up the Bear and the Nightingale trilogy, then read Six-Gun Snow White by Catherynne M. Valente and Ash by Malinda Lo, so was looking for something similar. I read Spinning Silver first (which I enjoyed), but Uprooted really brought the malevolence of the forest to life, so much so that I stopped taking walks in the woods for awhile. Anything that can affect me like that deserves to be near the top of the list. (4) The Physicians of Vilnoc by Lois McMaster Bujold - I love the Penric and Desdemona novellas, and this one didn't disappoint. Despite the infectious disease-related plot, it was a wonderful escape. (5) A Deadly Education by Naomi Novik - There's some recency bias here as I just finished the book a couple of hours ago, but this was so fun, I could barely put it down. Can't wait for the next installment! (6) The Ten Thousand Doors of January by Alix E. Harrow - A fun, light read that sparked my imagination more than any book recently. Overall, a good year for books!
  10. It is extremely wholesome and super gay. Highly recommended.
  11. Discord could work very well for this, their screen sharing system works great for socially distanced movie watching. I keep hearing about Acorn TV but a quick look doesn't show A Suitable Boy in the coming soon section, unfortunately.
