Meh. Can't do laundry because roommates left the Smartcard in their room (or hid it somewhere unusual) and are sleeping. I like doing it in the morning because there's usually no competition. If when they wake up all the machines are full, killing spree time. Well, probably not. But there'll be a frowning to remember!

Anyway, let's get to the Book Foo...

Finished: Queen of Candesce (Book 2 of Virga), by Karl Schroeder
Started: The First Half of the Book of the New Sun, by Gene Wolfe (technically two books)

I don't really have many extended comments on this one. I liked it, but not as much as the first in the series. Some of the setups of Spyre and the different kingdoms seemed a little artificial (in terms of setup, of course they were artificial in origin). Still, I'm going to get the third (and probably fourth) eventually.

Finished: Nocturne for a Dangerous Man, by Marc Matz
Started: Chasm City, by Alastair Reynolds

Comments behind the cut, short version: Meh, not my cup of tea. (no real spoilers except for concept and characters)

Finished watching the first season of Wolverine and the X-Men (because the UK jumped past us, playing it every day instead of weekly). Rather good, overall. Could be better. (some spoilers for end of season coming)Read more... )

Also lately been enjoying the second season of Spectacular Spider-Man. It's nice to have good cartoons again, finally.

TVwise, Terminator wasn't bad, BSG was... kinda a waste for a second last episode, but we'll see how they end off.

Edit: Oh, and I finally saw Watchmen. My thoughts, spoilers behind the cut both for the movie and the GN. Short version: Liked it, a bit soulless in parts, but I'll probably buy the extended DVD. Read more... )
