I'm going to assume this involves one or both of you dressing up as characters from a Japanese cartoon for small children.

Reading Maskerade by Terry Pratchett. Sure, I'm being wilfully thick - but I'm actually enjoying reading something for once.

Just finished Monument Maker and, yes, it’s probably too long but I think many on here would really like it. This is more like the Keenan who wrote Hidden Reverse about Coil etc. Very much in the searching, mystical territory. If one were being unkind one could say it has David Mitchell (Cloud Atlas bloke) elements- mix of genres, seemingly unconnected stories that slowly link and refract but he’s much better, less schematic, far more fun. And it is self indulgent but reading many of the posters on here…well , you get the idea. And there’s a bit of smut in it for those who need that in their novels. It’s got the right balance of playful and dead earnest.

I finished the higgs bio of blake, pretty good. Sort of goes a bit off track at the end when he tries to mount a half hearted critique based on gender, nature, some other stuff.

He actually mentions mycorrhizal and tree intelligence, shows how pervasive that idea has become.

Just ordered this

Speaking of graphic novels, Junji Ito has a big new manga volume called Sensor that's coming out in English in a few weeks, which I think I'll have to get.
Got this for my birthday and have just finished it. Pretty good, although perhaps not quite as good as Uzumaki, and much shorter. I'll post some photos, as the art is as incredible as ever. Although I see he still hasn't learned how to draw more than one "pretty girl face", haha.

I read that earlier this year. It's really interesting, lots of history unknown to me. I found it occupied a bit of a weird place in relation to Vodou though. He's quite attached to Batille and I think it's just wrong to project that into Vodou rites But it's not a major point tbh.

Not started it yet, I'm reading this frankly terrifying book about breath that my friend recommended me. Very persuasive argument against mouthbreathing.

I'm reading Ze French Revolution by Lefebvre cos I've had enough of that supercilious snob Oliver Craner telling me I'm ignorant of history! Which I'm not at all anyway.

I smashed my first year history essay despite zero interest. They chucked all the nobs in the bastille. that's all you need to know

Is it the James Nestor one? Annoys me everytime I see it mentioned 'cos I think I know more than him (I probably don't but still....).
A guy at work has done the "tape your mouth shut at night so you nose breath" thing. It just sound .... funny
