HAHA I know, I’m trying to cut down on books, why would I be collecting them? Well, part of cutting down the number is because I want to be more intentional about the books I collect and hold onto. I want to complete some series I’d started accumulating, and some collections based on author, but…… Continue reading I’m Starting Book Collections
I did a dog book tag, it’s only fair I also do a cat one! I found this one on Musing’s from Neville’s Navel. First, dis my kitty: Kitty name of Mo. ^_^ As always, book selections reflect recent reading rather than all-time perfect choices. purr: What book made you happy and relaxed? Mooncop by Tom Gauld?…… Continue reading The What Cats Do Book Tag
I’m back on the Star Trek posts at Comparative Geeks, with a reflection last month and a post on movie commentaries today! I’ve gotta actually watch more TNG soon and get some more posting material, I know… I’ve been sick-slash-injured for most of December and January (moral of the story: if you have severe allergies,…… Continue reading Update: February!
No posts this week due to the holiday. Have an excellent weekend, whether you celebrate or not, and don’t forget there was another massive oil spill in the US last week. It’s relevant.
This month’s Star Trek post is basically about how the structure of the show lends itself to Kirk/Spock shipping, with particular attention to the famously shippy licensed novel Killing Time. It’s probably the best Trek post I’ve done in a while, if I do say so myself. But it’s certainly the topic that has interested me most, so…… Continue reading Update: October!

I’m in the process of setting up books and posts for the future, though, and I’m excited to have more time and energy for blogging and blog-reading. I do have a Star Trek post up…… Continue reading Star Trek and #readmyowndamnbooks Updates
I successfully defended my thesis WOOOHOOOO YAAAAAY! One more summer of class and I graduate! My brain’s still pretty fried from all that, but my buddy Rose and I put together a Star Trek post for Comparative Geeks: Let’s Talk About First Officers. June is Pride Month, so in addition to some of the usual shenanigans, I’m…… Continue reading Quick update and Star Trek and stuff!
I turned in my thesis essay and I’m back as promised with a new Star Trek post on Comparative Geeks: “I Loved Star Trek: The Original Series, Where Can I Get More Episodes?” It’s sort of a stealth review of a comic I really liked, with some extra recommendations for good measure. I’m defending my thesis at…… Continue reading I’m Back, with Star Trek Comics!
This month’s Comparative Geeks post is in conversation with two friends on a topic I’ve been contemplating for some time: how emotions are portrayed on Star Trek. That post is mostly focused on how Data and Spock represent types of human neurodivergence, not a complete absence of emotion or a state of repression that needs release. We…… Continue reading Review – The Myth of Irrationality: The Science of the Mind from Plato to Star Trek by John McCrone
