look, a meme

I'm bored and on the internet, so I decided to do a book meme, because why not. NPR's top 100 sf/f books meme, from [personal profile] troisroyaumes. This is the usual kind of book meme: strong the ones you've read, emphasis the ones you intend to read, underline series/books you've read part of, and strike the ones you never intend to read.

guess which character wrote that secret

For my birthday this past weekend, I got the flu. Now I am achey and tired and cranky and fever-and-chills-y and hard-to-focus-y and I can't read fic and I screwed up the decreases in my knitting like twelve times yesterday because I couldn't count.

So I thought it was time to post a guessing-fannish-stuff meme!

Some months ago, [personal profile] aria posted a bunch of post secret-style secrets from the POV of various characters, and asked people to guess who wrote which secret. At the time I thought it was a great idea, and wanted to turn it into a meme (again), but then it took me a long time to make any secrets, and also to come up with secrets, and anyway I'm bad at getting around to posting things, so I just stuck them over in posts-to-maybe-make-someday. But today is clearly a good day for it!

Behind the cut: forty-some secrets by characters from twenty-some fandoms; includes text descriptions )

One NSFW secret is here, under a separate cut )

I'd love to play in your versions, too! )

ETA: There are two secrets left unguessed (counting the ones where someone made an awesome guess, but nobody guessed what I'd originally intended): #7 and 41. So I thought I'd narrow down the fandoms somewhat; the remaining ones come from: Stargate SG-1 and Nintendo video games.

Vorkosigan recs, meme, other stuff

1. A rec! Vorkosigan-verse, missing scene three months, [archiveofourown.org profile] philomytha's Aral Vorkosigan's Dog. It's set during the Barrayaran-Escobaran War, when Illyan's mission is basically to follow Vorkosigan around and watch everything he does, and it's all about how he stops being a neutral observer and how watching changes him. (Note: this story involves Ges Vorrutyer, so it includes rape and torture and the same predatory-kinky-bisexual-evil-dude thing as the book does.)

This is the kind of story where the two main characters don't sleep with each other, and I almost don't need it, because that moment when Illyan holds out his hands in silent fealty - and when he thinks of himself as Aral's loyal dog - oh geez, guys, it it amazing.

Though that doesn't mean that I would turn down an Aral/Cordelia Aral/Simon story in which Cordelia gives Simon her blessing and they all love each other fiercely. You know. If anybody has one on offer. There's [personal profile] dira's amazing Aral/Cordelia and Aral/Jole series - The World That You Need - which I love a lot and think is great and does a lot of nice poly/open relationship things. But it doesn't feature Simon.

And while I'm doing Vorkosigan recs, philomytha also wrote Dazzled, a snippet in which Duv Galeni imagines swearing a fealty oath to Aral Vorkosigan and is immensely drawn to the idea. Neo-feudalism and oaths of loyalty, guys, some fandoms just bring the gen kink and the fascinations with power dynamics. Fantasy and scifi novels that play with monarchy and patriarchy and feudalism and take them seriously, that want that system back and want to be on top of that pyramid, often make me uncomfortable. But make it a story about revolution, or a story about erotics - about the way someone can subvert that power pyramid and take power back by getting off on it in interesting ways - and I am so there.

4. I have been so fucking tired today. I don't know why. I slept plenty of hours! I went to bed at a more reasonable hour than I often do! But I just barely managed to claw my way out of bed this morning, and all day I was so tired I couldn't even focus on the laptop to watch tv. I tried sugar and protein and a walk out in the cold (to the coffee shop) and a soy latte (from the coffee shop) and nothing worked. But I was determined to send this story off for beta tonight, and I did, so there, exhaustion.

3.

But then I don't post it! Because it has to wait until round two is closed! So I keep being a little confused about what I've posted and where. *facepalm*

4. I'm sort of doing three weeks for dreamwidth all the time, since I'm not crossposting, but I thought this related meme was interesting: What kind of topics/entries would you like to see me posting about? Any particular questions you've always wanted to ask me but have resisted because the answer would be a huge essay? Ever want to wind me up and watch me go on a particular topic? Anything you've heard me say "I should write that entry about _________ I've been meaning to write" and have been patiently waiting for? (from [personal profile] telesilla)

I can't help it! It's just so pretty.

So far, basically everyone on my flist has been jumping back and forth between ocelot-wolf-mouse. I suspect that the questions trend in certain directions, once you hit certain daemons -- after all, your friends are unlikely to say "strongly agree" to "is this person annoying?"

The not-so-much-a-lyrics mem

So I was thinking about the lyrics meme, where you post interesting first lines of songs and people try to guess them.

And I was thinking about how fast I identify songs on my mp3 player: sometimes in two seconds, before any lyrics, just from the rhythm or chords or baseline. And about an oldies radio station where I grew up, which sometimes asked callers to ID songs from three chords.

And then, of course, there's the fact that some people don't "hear" lyrics (hi, [livejournal.com profile] fiatlouis). There are people who know songs better'n I do but are surprised when I tell them "oh, I don't like the third verse."

Now, we're a text-based medium, but that's no reason to privilege the lyrics, right?

SO! In the spirit of inquiry, I have embedded a no-lyrics meme. This is a fifty-two second mp3 file, containing the introductory chords for ten songs. The songs are separated by two seconds of silence... which means that the average length of clip is around 3.5 seconds. (It would be shorter, but I objected to only two chords for one memorable song, because it sounded so incomplete without the whole line. I am silly and inconsistent.) These are really distinctive intros, the sorts of songs that my radio station used to ask you to guess with a single chord.

And hey: there's a song in here that is represented by a single chord. But I betcha you can do it.



It's embedded from imeem, and you'll have to click on the little icon to make it start. You may want to make liberal use of the pause button -- I'd've done them in separate files, but ten different embedded files of 3 seconds each? Blargh. Comment below and I'll ETA up here when people guess songs.

To follow, if this works out at all: not-so-distinctive songs (five, maybe eight seconds apiece!) and, of course, the fannish version, featuring people who should not sing and half-second clips of soundtracks.

123 of 1001 Must Read Books - best not die soon

What I've read from this list from the book 1001 Books You Must Read Before You Die. Apparently, per amazon.com, said books are selected by "Derek Attridge (world expert on James Joyce), Cedric Watts (renowned authority on Joseph Conrad and Graham Greene), Laura Marcus (noted Virginia Woolf expert), and David Mariott (poet and expert on African-American literature), among some twenty others."

1001 whole books )

Things this says about me:
1. A ridiculous number of bolded books are things I read before I was sixteen, as part of my attempt to read early genre fiction or adventure novels. (The Poe, the H.G. Wells, the E.R. Burroughs, the Scott and the Dumas, and more I'm not remembering right now.)

2. A ridiculous number of the remaining books are things I read for school and despised. (Edith Wharton, Scarlet Letter, and so on.)

3. I still cannot for the life of me remember the titles of Samuel Beckett novels, and I had to look every one of 'em up to remember which was which.

4. Admittedly, I started at the bottom of this list and worked up, so I was starting to get bored up near the top, but still: nearly all of the "great books" that I've read are pre-1970.

Things about this list:
1. Pre-1700 works are hardly represented at all. Only thirteen worthwhile books were written before 1700? I don't think so. And "book" is defined very loosely here; novellas/screenplays are included (Graham Greene's The Third Man), short story collections are included (Adventures of Sherlock Holmes), children's stories are included (the Thurber), and works of epic poetry are included (Metamorphoses).

So there's no excuse for leaving out things like Canterbury Tales, the Iliad, the Oddyssey, Beowulf, the Ramayana, Journey to the West (which I always call "you know, the Monkey story"), Dante, Milton, and King Arthur from somewhat earlier than The Once and Future King. They'd fit into the definition just as well.

Oh, and while we're at it? Shakespeare. But apparently today we're defining "book" to include Walden and Metamorphoses, but not Hamlet. I mean, at first I thought it was just novels, so they had an excuse for not including some of the things I mentioned above, but then... Walden! Metamorphoses! WTF!

2. Nine Tailors and Murder Must Advertise are better'n Have His Carcarse and the other DLS books with Harriet Vane? Hmph. Oh, and: Cause for Alarm is the best Eric Ambler? Martin Eden but not Call of the Wild?

3. There's a lot of author repetition: regardless of how much I like Douglas Adams, should both Dirk Gently and Long-Dark Teatime be on the list? Should there be that much Beckett? (Eight novels, and the list doesn't even include Waiting for Godot.) Every Jane Austen novel? Do J.M. Coetzee novels really make up one percent of the books you must read before you die? I mean, one Mark Twain and eight Ian McEwans? More de Sade than P.G. Wodehouse?

4. Based on a cursory glance at the dates, about a third of these were published after 1970, and more than half were published after 1950 . There have been 69 "great books" since the year 2000 -- meaning that there are something like five times as many great books of the 2000s as there are great books before 1700. In other words, this list is top-heavy.

I like lists.

1. I am a sheep! My johari window. Though I agree with folks who think that there are some key adjectives missing, there; I mean, where's practical, funny or anything indicating a sense of humor other than "silly," intense, sarcastic, and so on?

2. [redacted because about work]

3. Thursday I made an excellent apple-pear crostada, which I'm really proud of, because it ended up not just tasty but attractive -- I usually don't snag any points for presentation. Today we're doing cherry-ricotta muffins, which our recipe says should "taste like a muffin taking cheesecake lessons." Where's the bad there? Mollie Katzen's Sunlight Cafe rocks my baking world -- people critique it all the time for being "not the kind of breakfast people eat now," apparently implying that we should all just give up on breakfast except for a cup of bad coffee and a doughnut, but the muffins all keep really well in the fridge. And are nummy. (This is the source of our recipes for lemon-ginger-pear muffins, which kick ass, and for blueberry muffins, and ... actually, I don't think I've baked anything in months that didn't come from this cookbook, except for cookies.)

4. For Valentine's Day/end of examiness, I got [livejournal.com profile] m_shell some Charles Chocolates. Charles Chocolates rock so, so much. We were offered some for free at the last BEA -- hand-outs of a Don't Know Much About Wine sort of publisher. Anyway, the pate de fruits were kick-ass, and the chocolate bars fantabulous, and the chocolate almonds really, really good, and we just sort of hovered there for a while going "oh, the passionfruit one!" and so on. They are far above my normal chocolate price-range, but really good, and now I can say that the mojito heart with mint infusion and lime? Wow.

5. Snow. We may even get "thunder-snow." Fortunately, we have hot chocolate and lots of Netflix.

Random post!

I did make some fabulous blueberry muffins, though, which I called a celebration even though I was planning on baking them anyway -- last weekend I was Iron Chef [livejournal.com profile] eruthros. [livejournal.com profile] m_shell realized, at about nine in the morning, that she had to take food to the choir rehearsal. And that she couldn't stop on the way and get anything, 'cause the car was kablooey, and she was going to be taking the bus. So I did the fastest paging-through-a-cookbook-looking-for-fast-recipes-I-had-all-the-ingredients-for EVER, and we decided on blueberry muffins (frozen blueberries, natch). I should've cut the lemon zest to speed them up, but I still got the muffins made and cooked in about half an hour, and then [livejournal.com profile] m_shell grabbed them and ran off to church, and then her choir ate them all and I didn't get to taste any. So I made some yesterday. Nummy! From Mollie Katzen's Sunlight Cafe, like practically all muffins we cook now. They turned out very well, even though I was an idiot at Trader Joe's and somehow managed to buy lime yoghurt (look, it said "cream lime plain lowfat," and I saw the word "plain," and anyway the container is identical to the one I usually get, and excuses, excuses). Last week's, similarly, were apparently good even though I could swear that I left out the baking soda (never cook a recipe with both baking powder and baking soda at top speed; you'll forget one of the two). Which ... I dunno, maybe it's just a recipe with a lot of flexibility.

Query: if you were looking for screencaps of SG-1 (original team or with Jonas or with Cam) striding off together to save the world, what episodes would you think of? Other than "Serpent's Grasp?" Sadly, they tend to save the world in little isolate pockets these days. I mean, in Reckoning, Daniel's off being ... brain-whammied by Replicators, and Sam's with Jacob and trying to fix the Ancient Weapon to kill replicators, and Jack's at SGC, and. Hardly the bold stride of the credits, where they all walk though the stargate in unison.

Query (2): has anyone ever studied the internet phenomenon that results in every parody song being attributed to Weird Al? Even, like, songs sung by women? (Anyone who thinks Weird Al sang "What If God Smoked Cannabis?" is clearly smoking the good stuff.)

Also, I am tempted by that song meme -- where you pick a number, or a couple of numbers, and I upload the song corresponding to that number on a complete playlist of mp3s. Problem: this computer is barely five weeks old; I don't really have interesting and weird stuff on it yet. Except the Hindi version of Dancing Queen. And the entirety of the extant Camp Records songs. And most of what I do have is old; it's practically all ripped off CD, and since I haven't purchased those weird round silver things in years, well. If you promise not to mock me for the weird combination of the sixties and the mid-nineties, leave a number (or two or three) between 1 and ... *pokes music folder* ... 1632 in the comments, and I'll upload those songs for everyone's listening pleasure.

Also, new icon. I had one with a much better border, but then photoshop crashed, and I couldn't seem to get the exact same shade of red again. Curses! I have a similar one with strawberries, if anyone wants it.

First, write down the names of 12 characters. Then read and answer the questions.
You can't look at the questions (or click on the cut) until you write down the 12 characters you're going to use.


1. Cordelia Naismith (Vorkosigan series)
2. Methos
3. Daniel Jackson
4. Luthe (Damar)
5. His Grace the Duke of Ankh, Commander of the City Watch, Sir Samuel Vimes
6. Granny Weatherwax
7. Estraven (Left Hand of Darkness
8. Lord Peter Wimsey
9. Commander Susan Ivanova
10. Sherlock Holmes
11. Captain Mal Reynolds
12. Spock

If you woke up and I was in bed with you, what would be your first thought? (Be honest.)

Post reply, then post this in your LJ and find out what my answer would be.


(Is it wrong of me to desperately want to edit the language of this meme? To contain the subjunctive? And a more descriptive wossname than "I was in bed with you?" (I mean, you woke up and I was in bed with you? All suddenly-like? Somehow I think it's supposed to be read as "woke up and found me in your bed," which is not what it says. Oh Christ, I'm stuck in a parenthetical comment and I'll never get out. Help! Help!) Oh, that's better. And definitely better instructions than "post reply?" Anyway. Stupid memes. I edit quiz results all the time, too. They need it.)

In non-memeish news, I just received the FireMountain Gems sale catologue, and want one of everything, which is probably a bad thing. Oh, and yesterday we made the Gourmet version of the American breakfast -- pancakes, eggs, and bacon. Except, you know, with whole wheat blueberry pancakes (we're out of buttermilk, sadly), Nieman Ranch bacon, and eggs with carmelized onions and feta cheese. Like Denny's, but better. There are probably more interesting things going on in my life, but face it, it's hard to trump carmelized onions.

Friday Five(ish)

1. What is the first book you remember reading?

By myself, darned if I can remember. (The first book my sister read was Hop on Pop.) With my dad, I read the Laura Ingalls Wilder books, Hound of the Baskervilles, and Danny the Champion of the World in the first grade, but I can't remember the order.

2. What is your favorite book?

Owch. The one I reread most is probably either Gaudy Night by DLS or one of the Guards books by PTerry.

3. Who is your favorite author?

At this exact and precise moment in time, Emma Bull. Ask me again tomorrow.

4. Pick up the nearest book (magazine or any available printed material will do). Turn to page 24 (or the closest to it). Go to the 7th line. What is it?

"That you will be shortly in for tea." [Dragons in the Waters, Madeleine L'Engle, still on my bedside table from my last visit home, when I was doing Childrens Book Comfort Reading]

5. If you could be any character in literature, who would you be?

Archie Goodwin, because that I could go swing dancing, be generally cool, and irritate policemen in fedoras. Or Vetinari -- I did always used to want to be Vetinari. I would like to meet LPW but not be him (I'm anti-PTSD, personally), and I would like to be Harriet Vane if I felt I could do a competent job, but somehow that seems impossible.

And additions to the Friday Five by [livejournal.com profile] gurdonark:

6. Name ten novelists who come to your mind right off the bat as folks you love to read--no snobbery permitted:

1. Terry Pratchett
2. P.G. Wodehouse
3. Emma Bull
4. Ursula K. LeGuin
5. Rex Stout
6. Gabriel Garcia Marquez
7. J.R.R. Tolkien
8. Laurie King
9. DLS
10. Eric Ambler

I thought of GK Chesterton, but mostly I only like his short stories, and of Oscar Wile and GBS, but mostly I only like their plays, and MFK Fisher, but mostly I only like her food writing, so.

7. Name three poets that come to mind that matter to you, no "grad seminar mugging" permitted:

1. e.e. cummings
2. Dorothy Parker
3. Gary Snyder

7a. From [livejournal.com profile] friede: three POEMS:

1. Gary Snyder, How Poetry Comes to Me )
2. Dana Gioia, (though his politics make me wince, I adore this poem) California Hills in August )
3. Adrienne Rich, For the Dead )

8. What three non-fiction books made a deep impression on you?

1. James Clifford, Routes: Travel and Translation in the Late Twentieth Century
2. Christensens, eds. Discovery of America and Other Myths
3. MFK Fisher, With Bold Knife and Fork

9. What three science fiction authors intrigue you this moment?

1. Larry Niven, which is shameful and embarrassing but I really like his short stories
2. Lois McMaster Bujold
3. Carol Emshwiller, if she counts as sf

10. What is the last mystery novel you read?

Either Rex Stout's Not Quite Dead Enough (a pair of novelas) or Laurie King's A Letter of Mary, looking for the Lord Peter bit.

Also, the first sentence of the first post of each month of 2004 as a paragraph: )
