...Not that I'm around much anyway. Well, I lurk a lot, but I tend not to comment or post much. Shyness + ADD = not the best recipe for LJ success.
Anyway, I won't even be lurking for the next week or so because I'm leaving tomorrow for an eight-day geology field trip. I think I'll enjoy it, although I'm not so enthusiastic about the fact that I'll only have a day to recover before lectures start up for the year.
and now for the fandom talk )

ADD is annoying. Not being able to find a job sucks. I am sick and tired of politicians talking about climate change and then not doing anything.
Fandom-related essays are cool. Over-analysing fandom is fun. I even have some essay topics in mind about fandom. If I list them here I might actually write them sometime:
-Air Gear, why I love it, and why aspects of it make me deeply uncomfortable (some form of feminist analysis)
-The awesome portrayal of women in Fullmetal Alchemist
-Related to the above: the roles of Riza and Winry in FMA and their links to female archetypes
-The Immortals arc and coming-of-age motifs in Naruto (I actually started this one... don't know if I'll ever finish it though)
And, because I feel like it, here are some really interesting fandom essays from other people:
Labyrinth as feminist myth
Feminism in Bleach
...Dammit, I know there are more than that. Well, I am leaving out some of the more controversial/argumentative shipping essays, but there are others
Ooh, here's another one (sort of): Sherwood Smith on modern reinterpretations of Jane Austen books. She also has quite a few other essay-type things on her journal.

spoilers for recent chapters of Bleach, Naruto, Tsubasa and Holic )
Also, I highly recommend the manga Someday's Dreamers.  It's only two volumes long, but it's lovely.  The central concept is kind of like xxxHolic or Kobato (somewhere in between) and the tone of the store is more like the later volumes of Fruits Basket.

They've been playing Tsubasa soundtrack music at the gymnastics events at the Olympics. Only sometimes, but still. I heard "When Two Powers Collide" and my sister heard Kurogane's theme tune earlier.

I just saw someone quote the parental advisory notice for volume one of the Black Lagoon manga: Black Lagoon is rated M for Mature and is recommended for mature readers. This volume contains graphic violence, strong language, nudity, adult situations, drinkin', smokin', ass-kickin', law-breakin', gun-love, running with scissors and just about everything your mother ever told you not to do.
I lol'd.
