I would like to begin with this exquisite Doctor Who-inspired song a friend posted on facebook.
That said, quick update on my cultural activity:
-I finished the seventh Harry Potter book a couple weeks ago. Two thumbs up.
–Darths & Droids is simply hilarious. (Very mild language warning.) It takes forever to read through the archives, but I highly recommend it–even if you know nothing about RPGs or the Star Wars prequel.
-I read a highly interesting book by Etienne Gilson called Heloise and Abelard, about the eponymous couple. Certainly for mature readers (as anyone who is aware of the couple’s history knows), but extremely informative and quite easy to read. I’ve never read Etienne Gilson before, but he certainly comes highly recommended.
-I’m reading Howl’s Moving Castle at the moment; it’s very enjoyable. I’ve already seen the Miyazaki movie, which I loved. They are certainly quite different, though!
