And my sister is NOT HAPPY about it. This is her favorite book, and she argues that both Gatsby and Daisy are ALL WRONG, and having read it, I see where she's coming from. It kind of looks like an entertaining trainwreck to me (as ceilidhann says, "This will either be a stunning adaptation of a classic or a Showgirls style hot mess. There is no in-between"), but then, I've lucked out with Books I Care About. Mostly. If you'll excuse me, I need to go pour one out for the unfinished His Dark Materials movie trilogy.
Also, I feel kind of bad--I don't picspam costumes on Tumblr anymore (mostly because I despair of trying to image-describe them sufficiently), but I have been using it for the kind of things I probably used to put on LJ. Mostly because there's a nice modular quality to it--a conversation here, a trailer there; you don't have to stop and collect enough stuff to merit a whole entry (or flail around when you have a backlog to deal with). But you can't get a good conversation going for shit over there, given the way commenting is (not) set up. So. I should probably make more of an effort to do a Tumblr roundup here. Thus, for example, we have an Avengers tag with Some cute Avengers fan art, Freakishly Lifelike Loki, and THORGI. (Also: Thorgi and Lokitty.) I also tend to throw any interesting conversations under the "twitter" tag. Which is where you find all the squamous ladies. So. \;;;/
