1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    I'm reading Gatsby again. First time since high school. Oh man. The pale tone of detachment between characters is great. As is the imagery. As are the illusions.

    The Sourcebook of Magic: 2nd ed

    You two should get together.

    I haven't started yet, but I intend to read david cross' ''i drink for a reason''.
    I've heard that it is really awful. Even Cross fans hate it.

    I hate reading plays unless I'm going to see them performed by competent actors. Even then, they're often so infused with ideology that the characters become fonts spewing forth political and sociological messages instead of dialogue. This is especially true of 20th century plays and almost a law after the invention of television.

    No wonder Broadway is what it is.

    Currently:

    "Effects of overnight sleep restriction on brain chemistry and mood in women with unipolar depression and healthy controls." Bernier, et. al.

    Riveting results linking magnetic resonance spectroscopy results in the dorsal prefrontal cortex and pons to physiological responses to sleep deprivation.

    Also: various radiation physics textbooks

    CAN'T WAIT TILL GRADUATION...the reading list has already been accumulating.

    I haven't spent enough time reading plays to make a judgement of my own, but why don't you like reading plays, bad stage interpretations notwithstanding?
    The screen version with Richard Burton is quality.
