So I watched Torchwood in more or less one sitting. All three seasons, during the course of one rainy week in December, when I was laid up with the pig plague.

It took me a couple of days to sort my thoughts enough for me to actually write down what I thought of Children of Earth, and even then this is all very knee-jerk. I did my best not to edit it as I typed it up, because it's what I thought before I became at all involved in the fandom. I think I had a different take on a lot of it because I didn't have any expectations. It was all immediate for me. Looking back on this, even just a few months later, is interesting.

Edited to say: Obviously, spoilers for CoE.

All in all, I gave it four out of five exploded pterodactyls. )

A quiet moment between freak-outs in regards to my digital media classes. I'm having an awful time finishing my model for the first class. I can't do heads. Heads are, as it turns out, kind of important when it comes to having a believable person. Also, I have to add bones. I've got to bone her. Hahaha.

I really need to take the time to find a new icon. I'm full of lazy. I'm also full of irritation, and not so full of money, which is a major source of said irritation.

Anyways, I just finished reading "The Astonishing Life of Octavian Nothing, Vol. One: The Pox Party" by MT Anderson. It was an awfully good book. I have to confess, I bought it because I thought it looked vaguely fantastical, and I have a weakness for YA fantasy. I also have a weakness for MT Anderson; "Burger Wuss" helped me survive my stint at McDonald's in high school, and everytime I see someone on their BlueTooth, I have a flashback to "Feed". As it turns out, Octavian Nothing isn't a fantasy novel, but rather a historical fiction, set at the beginning of the American Revolution, which is both entertaining and poignant. Every couple of pages, there would be a sentence on the page so beautifully rendered that I just had to stop and stare at it. Octavian's tale is both disturbing and moving, and I can't wait for the next book. And that's my impromptu review. I flew through it so fast that I'm not going to have anything to read at work tomorrow. Okay, back to the grindstone.
