The Autobiography of Russell
Life from a different perspective
Bored with a side of comment drought
Anyone else bored right now? Wait, don't answer that, you'd have to break your vow of comment silence on my journal. I haven't gotten a single comment in over a week now, not that I've posted any comments to generate a response anyway. But I digress, because I'm an attention whore and know it.

As I was saying, I'm bored. I've already read the first three books of Honor Harrington over again. I can't say I'm happy with the books that are primarily centered on Peep action because there's so much backstabbing I can barely stand it. What I want to do is get back to the books focused on Grayson and/or talk about technology R&D like the new LAC designs and what-not. But that's still a while off and for now I have to endure "Field of Dishonor". At least she'll kick butt.

PS: Admiral Courseviour and Admiral Yanakov should've got it on while they were together, not that they would've seeing as Yanakov had a couple of wives, but they did so many things in sync it's funny.

To comment on the last two HH related comments, I get the impression that there are hidden gay characters in the Honorverse, and Andreas Venezilos springs to mind. I don't know why, but the scene with him on basilisk ACS as Hauptman was coming to Basilisk read that way. Same with Fearless' recommissioning party in The Honor of the Queen. Something about how fervently he was beating women off with a stick.

Oh, and somebody make paulo d'arezzo gay. Not cause he was bred for a fantastic body, but b/c the darkness of that escape from slavery has created a deep and powerful personality. Have you seen any of Tony Leung's movies, specifically Hero? He's got an ordinary face or body, but the depth of pain in his eyes is such that it brings a sad and appealing sort of beauty to his face and eyes. I so want to go see 2046 . . .

I definately like the technical parts of the books, where he describes how the universe has evolved and why things work. It's a deus ex machina approach to it, but I love the little hints that he's given to the history and astrography of his universe. Given how fervent my interest in the history of Earth is, I'd love to have a chance to look at ~2000 years of reliably recorded history. It'd be facinating!

That's part of what was so amazing about The Shadow of Saganami - It's the first time since On Basilisk Station where he has managed to create that sense of total wonder in me, and to feel like i'm really exploring space.

It's kind of like reading Heinlein!

I've not read any of the HH books. What are they about?

Think Horatio Hornblower in space.

Unfortunately, I tend to comment less when I'm not bored.
And lately, I'm not. Doesn't mean I'm not reading, though.
