1. Eye candy for the day: 16 Stunning Photos That Shatter [White US] Society’s Stereotypes About Asian Men

The article itself I could take or leave, but the pictures! *___* Probably my favorites are #1 and #6 (the underwear photos, while attractive, cracked me up. Possibly I have strange reactions!).

2. Still plenty of space left in the daily December meme! Topic suggestions welcome! :)

And now it's back to work for me, gotta clear my plate as much as possible before Thanksgiving.

⋄ Ahahaha, JLin, never stop being adorkable! you've changed, bro )

♣ Finally managed to find someone to watch Fruitvale Station with me... if we can fit in the time. ^^; Wire fans, you might be interested in this Michael B. Jordan interview if you haven't already seen it. (... I still haven't managed to watch The Wire yet, sigh.)

♥ I signed up for Touch Pass after all! I'm still debating whether I want to add more requests, but I like the ones I have so far (super-short-form: Riko + Satsuki + Alexandra being awesome/terrorizing their players, Aomine + Kuroko relationship repair + preferably spectators loling forever, Riko + Hyuuga + Kiyoshi being their OT3 little selves). Now it's definitely time to play catch-up, I guess.

Q.U.E.E.N. )

1. I FINISHED CODING THE LAST OF MY 30 TRANSCRIPTS TODAY! \o/ \o/ \o/ and also OW, I feel a return of tendonitis-ish pain thanks to all that scribbling. I imagine this is what surfacing from scuba diving must feel like, except all in my brain.

2. Oh look, a Kuroko no Basuke friending meme! Maybe I'll actually play in this one while I'm recovering from thesis immersion... or maybe not, considering how little I've been able to interact with new people from the last friending meme I played in. ;____; (Hi, new people! I swear I am reading, it's just that I am awful at remembering to comment on things.) Also I have managed zero fannish content, icons notwithstanding. Woes.

3. Jeremy Lin meets Wat Misaka- ugh, my heart. JLin, how do you do this to me, I am not even invested in basketball. (Or... non-Kuroko basketball. >.>)

4. I've been going around spamming your threads at [personal profile] staranise's words and deeds love meme, but I know I've probably missed a bunch. If I haven't commented, please feel free to toss links my way! Also, I just put up my thread, because it would be nice to remember the things I've done that you felt were meaningful while I'm scrambling to accomplish so much thesis else.

1. For those of you who haven't come across it already, [personal profile] littlebutfierce is hosting a love meme! Thanks for my thread. ♥

2. I just finished Random Family, and it is AMAZING. Ostensibly I'm reading this for academic reasons, but I just inhaled it at my fiction-reading pace. (It feels SO GOOD to be reading things at my fiction-reading pace!) I'm in no state to book-blog properly, as my head is full of ten million other things, but INCOHERENT FLAIL. I am so glad the author chose to tell the stories of the people in the South Bronx.

3. Kao Kalia Yang's essay on The Science of Racism is a must-read. I can say nothing about this piece that she doesn't say more eloquently herself.

4. Because I want to end on a more cheerful note today: check out GQ's Jeremy Lin interview! JLin, please never lose your down-to-earthness, it is the most adorable omg.

Washington Post; Presidential Memorandum. &hearts I know that there are many larger issues that need work, but thank you, Mr. President, for not overlooking the more personal side of politics.

Also, this reminds me that I forgot to share the treasure trove of Time photos I discovered the other day! (Way late to the party, of course, but still.) collegiate!Obama spam )

Why yes, there will be icons soon; why do you ask? *g*

In other news, it's a writing-at-work kind of day, so I think I'm gonna get back to that. :) Happy Friday, everyone!

eta; forgot today's poem!

Outside the Wind Whispers

Outside the wind
whispers through the dark,
softly, through trees
no one can see now-
Softly, from open hearts
the simple word floats up:
that you and I, love,
are still each other's... )

-- Tarjei Vesaas

+ Women's figure skating last night was epic, and also, exploding with awesome Asian women- Mao Asada! Miki Ando! Mirai Nagasu! Kim Yu-Na! &hearts &hearts &hearts pretties~ ) Rachael Flatt was adorbs as well, but I was infinitely less excited about her after watching all that amazingface, heh. I cannot wait for tomorrow, basically! *____*

+ Nurturing the artist, an amazing interview with dancer/choreographer/dramatist Lee Su-Feh (via someone on the network):
Part of why we dance is that so much of dance is about shared code. In a shared culture, dance transmits the cultural code. The logic of the dancing body, the rhythms, the manners — the things transmitted through the dances are [found] in that society. But if you take that dance to another culture, those codes don’t make sense. So the dance becomes decoration and it’s just pretty. If it’s just pretty, it becomes an object — you can buy it, you can toss it away. And fundamentally, I don’t think that’s what dance is for but for the most part, that’s what dance has become.

So when we live in a multicultural and diverse world, without a shared mythology, how do we connect to our bodies? How do we address the question of dance? Yet, I think we all need to feel each other’s bodies, to have a fuller understanding of each other. Understanding is not just intellectual. There’s a whole body intelligence that I feel is missing in our efforts to live together.

Have just come back from the movie and my reaction was basically AGS:DLFKHS:DLKJG: *\o/*!!! More thoughts later, maybe.

ALSO, HAVE A VERY SLASHY PROMO INTERVIEW (thanks for the pointer, [livejournal.com profile] osolone! &hearts :D) WITH RDJ & JUDE LAW. [WARNING: contains spoilers, including movie clip.]

I am not an American Idol fangirl, neither am I an Adam Lambert fangirl. However! Adam's Out interview (which I am sure many of you have already seen thanks to [personal profile] astolat) is really amazing and happy-making, and since I've been rather grumpy these last couple of weeks, I am feeling the need to put more happy things up here. So, here, have a dose of happy!

Part 1 | Part 2

It's just... really nice to see someone so centered and confident and accepting of himself. :>

In other news, I finally watched Merls 2x06 last night! However, I am putting off all TV commentary until I'm done watching 2x07 and 2x08, and probably until I've written my small gifts fic as well (since that is looking easier to plot, and I'd like to finish something before the next two weekends of crazy).

[[livejournal.com profile] kelene, please consider this my apology for being slower than a snail. D: This latest round of nitpicking really should do it, I promise! &hearts]
