jmtorres: From Lady Gaga's Bad Romance music video; the peach-haired, wide-eyed iteration (Default)

Last call for cheap books, kind of an eclectic lot, Shakespeare and Beatles and random SFF anthologies. Most of these are pretty well used, cover wear, etc. Let me know your zip code and I'll calculate media rate shipping from that and book weight.

Let me know before Friday night if you want any of these, because on Saturday they're going to Good Will.

For the Shakespeare, I am including publisher/edition for those who care; most of them are perfectly readable modern editions but I feel I should note that the "new hudson" editions were printed circa 1910 and while they have the same kinds of notes I tend to expect, they are visibly old. Merrills is 1910 as well, and Arden is good gracious, 1898.

 I really have no idea why SyFy thought it was a good idea to air the entire 3rd season of 12 Monkeys in one weekend. (I also thought it wasn't airing until June for some reason.)  They're calling it an "event" which I guess it qualifies as, though that terminology is usually saved for miniseries an TV movies, not the latest season of a show that used to air one episode a seek. I mean, it's definitely a bingeworthy show.  I just finished last night's episodes, and it was definitely written to be a single storyarc and watched together, so there was that, it just seems to be an odd decision.  Then again, SyFy pretty much cancelled it and renewed it for a 4th season simultaneously a few months back, so who knows what they're thinking.

Mostly the episodes were good, however...

 Thursday:  arrive around 12:30, no actual plans beyond staying the night with [tumblr.com profile] sophygurl .  Feel dead the whole time because my plane leaves at 6: 30 am and I can barely get up that early, much less at least 1 1/2 hours earlier to get to the airport on time.

FridaY;  Move to my room at some point and wait for [personal profile] lyssie to arrive.

4-5:15: Love Love Peace Peace: What Makes a Fun Story? 

Saturday:  Farmers Market in the morning, must find people to go with.

8:30-9:45 am (assuming I actually get moving and finish at Farmer's Market by then, which isn't likely)  Rebel Scum: Finding Hope In Resistance 

10-11:15 am (even though I didn't watch the show)  Yuri on Ice! Skating on Love! 

1-2:15  Red As Blood: Women and Gothic Horror 

Sunday:

1-2:15 (if I manage to watch some of it by then)  The Women of Luke Cage 

2:30-3:45:  Hidden Figures 
or
Moral Ambiguity In Fiction 

Monday:  No panels, I don't think, leaving sometime in the afternoon.

I'm not on any panels this year, so they're all pretty tentative and can be dropped in favor of hanging out with people, which is how I intend to spend most of my time, if anyone wants to schedule anything.
