I've been tagged a couple of times with the 'random things' meme. Unfortunately, since I am currently failing to think of interesting or indeed random things about myself, I figured we'd play 'random recs' instead.

Yeah, didn't think you'd mind.

Despite the recs, I am seriously behind on reading fic. So to those of you on my flist who've been posting recently, it's all bookmarked, I assure you.

Fanlistings. I don't get them. Am I missing something, or is this some hang-over of pre-internet fandom I'm not getting? Just... what's the point?


In my search for good X-men (movieverse) fic, I found the [community profile] xmmficathon archive. I've justed started reading through the 2004 entries, and wow - so far, every fic has been worth reading. Just wow.

All this great fic, sitting there on LJ. It got me thinking about reviewing older fanworks (fic, in this case, but the point is just as valid for art), and how, after all this time, I feel sorta odd, leaving a comment. I'm not sure why. A year, two years, no problem. But four?

Perhaps it's because people's fannish lives are so transitory, especially on LJ. 4 years is an eternity, and people move on, from fandoms and genres and writing styles. It almost seems like an intrusion to comment and have a slice of then emailed into people's inboxes.

On the other hand, if anyone dug up one of my fics and commented on it in 4 years time, I'm pretty sure I'd be thrilled.

Anyway. Comments? Anyone else have a personal statute of limitations on reviewing?


X 3

Right. I went to see X-men 3 with the gang last night. What a letdown. Not even that it was bad (which it was) but that it was completely forgettable. Like it couldn't even be bothered to try and live up to the first two. Review, my patented ACME Character-Transplant theory, and what I would have liked to see in this movie )

In conclusion, nice special effects, and overall was not a patch on the other two. Phew. I feel better now, having got that off my chest.

After everyone left last night, I watched ep seven of Dr Who (thanks [profile] cloverfizz!), and have to say, it was rather disappointing too. Not bad, just nothing particularly special. Must have been a night for it.
