musesfool: mal & zoe, out of gas (can't take the sky)
Monday night, [personal profile] innie_darling and I met up to see the new Jake Gyllenhaal/Tatiana Maslany movie about the Boston Marathon bombing, Stronger. The acting was good, I thought. It was not the kind of movie I would have sought out on my own, but I was glad to have seen it.

While we were waiting for the movie to start, we were talking about fannish things as per usual, and about how I sometimes classify a pairing as "I don't not ship it" and in thinking about it more over the past couple of days, I came up with my own personal taxonomy of shipping:

- OTP OF OTPS (i.e., the all-time greats, ironclad, no matter what)
- OTP
- I ship it!
- I don't not ship it
- I could/might be convinced to ship it
- I don't care (i.e., if it shows up in a story that otherwise has things going for it, I'll keep reading, but I don't seek it out)
- meh, I don't ship it / it bores me so I don't read it
- I dislike it but whatever, other people can do what they like, I can scroll past
- NOTP (i.e., it's blocked so I don't have to sully my eyes with it)

Generally, when I talk about a pairing as as "I don't not ship it," I mean that they are people who are most definitely weird about each other, which is one of my personal flags for shipping, but in this particular classification, I don't care if they are having sex with each other or not (or with other people, depending), as long as they are somehow together – partners, brothers, whatever. I think (I hope!) it's implicit that I understand why people would ship them*, but I just...don't take that particular read on the relationship under most circumstances.

*as opposed to pairings where I don't.

And if they are having sex, I personally prefer it not to be framed romantically? Or, rather, in most cases, in terms of canon (rather than AU) settings, I don't find the usual shippy romantic tropes particularly interesting with these sorts of pairings. I mean, sure, 'there's only one bed' or fake dating are always on the table, but I don't feel like even those tropes should follow the regular narrative path. The clearest examples we came up with were Sam/Dean and Mal/Zoe, and I mean, I don't see either of those pairings as people who go on dates or have traditionally madcap rom com hijinks (which isn't to say that that couldn't be done with great results, but I don't think it could be played straight, as it were [I mean, Sam/Dean is incest, so it has its own challenges]). And she threw in Middleman/Wendy (which I do ship more traditionally), and I brought up Obi-Wan/Anakin, which is what I'm having complicated feelings about lately, and so it seems like a useful category to have. idk.

aralias: (blogging at the end of the universe)
just back from the london crystal maze experience. booked this about when i joined this current job - and three months later, it finally arrived! i thought it was both very good (really nice, knowing, silly recreation of the television show game style, really good host) and not QUITE as fun as i had hoped. admittedly i think i thought it would be a lifechanging super high, and it was actually just pretty pleasant and really neat seeing all the different zones. perhaps the fact that you don't win a prize, which takes the pressure off (though i went with a lot of SUPER competitive people, so maybe not. we all wanted to win, whether or not we could actually win anything)(spoilers - we did win. nailed it).

i'd say - yes, recommended. but it is a lot of money for an hour of mostly shouting instructions at your friends.

started watching the most recent episode of the new show this morning to get in the "zone" as it were - but didn't finish it until this evening, which is good as, after a strong start, they failed abysmally. i pointed out to an only minimally interested erin that while the show had chosen to call these contestants 'the cosplay group'... they were actually and very obviously furries.

quite funny.
musesfool: Jason Toddler shows off his new costume to Dick (everybody starts somewhere)
Board meeting went well, even though it rained so the rooftop terrace at the venue went unused. Sigh. I went home afterwards and fell into bed at 8:30 pm after eating cookies and milk for dinner. I win at adulting!

Of course, the one night I go to bed without checking my flist, it turned out there was a question about my yuletide nominations. It is a spoiler for Crooked Kingdom but spoiler! ) As of this morning, he was approved without my having to say anything, but I did comment anyway to say what I said under the cut.

Now Gotham Academy has to be approved! I'm sure there'll be a question about Damian Wayne there too but he does show up more than once over the course of the comic. Which I guess is as good a lead-in as any to discuss Second Semester:

What I've just finished
Gotham Academy: Second Semester, which I enjoyed, though boy they do not shy away from making the kids selfish, thoughtless and highly teenagery. spoilers )

I did like that they have all really gelled into a team - I enjoyed Colton and Pomeline sniping at each other while they work together a lot. And any Maps+Damian team-up is A++ in my book. Best Team! For yuletide, I just want schoolgirl (and boy, though I care less about the boys) supernatural detective shenanigans, with occasional Robin.

Though have we ever gotten an explanation on why/how MacPherson knows Bruce Wayne is Batman?

This morning, I also read the Star Wars Annual #3 which is a nice Han/Leia story with some fun Indiana Jones references and Leia being her usual awesome self. I also liked how it explained Han sticking around with the Rebellion, neatly giving him an excuse he could live with to cover up the real reason.

What I'm reading now
Still A Ruin of Angels. I have to admit, I find "Trust me! / Don't you trust me? / I didn't tell you this hugely important secret because plot reasons it was too dangerous!" to be super irritating in a character so a lot of the plot machinations are making me say, "If Woody had gone to the police, this never would have happened!" "If Ley had just told Zeddig what was up, things might have played out differently!" Like, things still would have gone to hell in a handbasket, but I'd have a lot more sympathy for Ley when they did. Otoh, Izza and Kai and Tara! <333

And speaking of Crooked Kingdom above, yesterday I was thinking about how dropping the Crows kids into the Craft universe would work, since so much of the magic etc. in the latter is based on negotiation and deals, and the deal is the deal, right? Someone who isn't me should write that.

What I'm reading next
Two weeks until the new Magnus Chase comes out, so who knows? I do have a ton of stuff on the iPad, ready to go!

musesfool: Batwoman (your name in the title)
ZOMG this day! Board meeting imminent!

I just wanted to let people know, in case they didn't and were interested, that Alice Hoffman has written a prequel to Practical Magic about the Aunts, and it's coming out in October: The Rules of Magic! I only found out the other day!

I love both the book and the movie, though they are very different, and I'm excited to read the Aunts' story! #please don't suck!

musesfool: text icon: somewhere in this building is our talent (somewhere in this building is our talent)
dear universe,

I have some complaints:

- as per this xkcd (hat tip to [personal profile] twistedchick), & should be used for friendship and / should be used for romance. Please stop getting my hopes up that there is new pairing fic to read in my rare pair when it is not, in fact, pairing fic.

- it's bad enough that I'm following a bunch of works in progress now, but what is up with people getting to the penultimate chapter of a work (and I'm not talking anything short here, I'm talking well over 100K words) and then just...never posting the last chapter? I would plaintively cry, "who does that?" except I am now in possession of such knowledge and it's more than one person! (And I know this because it'll be listed as 53/54 or whatever.)

- this is less a complaint and more a bit of bafflement, but I never know what to say to people who leave feedback along the lines of "I hope you keep writing!" or "I hope you've written more!" Like, click on my name in the by line? There'll be 700+ stories there? I mean, thank you! But yeah.

- why is writing such a garbage hobby? when I have the words, I don't have the time. when I have the time, I don't have the energy. when I have the energy, I don't have the words. Bah.

- subset of the above: I actually opened a story to work on last night, wrote one (1) sentence in two (2) hours, and gave up when I realized it would need to be all porn from there on out. Bah.

no love,

me

aralias: (WWBD?)
sunday afternoon, erin's out and will be out for a few days. that means it's either time to apply for a new job... and/or tell you about this early draft of 'voice from the past' that i have! let's do one of them anyway.

i think large parts of this are hilarious, btw - very different from what was one screen. if you read only one long analysis of a blake's 7 script by yours truly, you should read this one (or pressure point, which is similarly interesting, but shorter).

if you'd rather read the script as a PDF, than you would read about me reading the script, it'll be here for a short time.

Meow, pussy (WARNING - IMAGE HEAVY) )
musesfool: baze and chirrut (i don't need luck i have you)
Last night, L and I went to the premiere of this English language musical version of The Romance of the Western Chamber (Xi Xiang Ji in Chinese?).

It is not, in fact, Romeo and Juliet, or it kind of is in terms of love at first sight and climbing up balconies and exchanging poetry in letters, but without the tragic ending. Which I was glad for.

It's very charming, though the male lead's voice was not up to the singing, imo. The ladies were all fantastic, especially Mari Uchida as Hong-niang, the matchmaking maid. The women's costumes were lovely; the men's were...well, they started out all right, but Mr. Chang's wedding outfit was made of what looked like baby blue lamé, which is not a look I personally endorse.

Afterwards - and it was not a short play! - we attempted to go here, because it was a beautiful night for a rooftop bar, but apparently my randomly picking a place in the vicinity of the theater because it looked cool meant I'd actually picked someplace popular and happening? There was a large line outside the door anyway, so we were like, we are too old to wait on lines for bars - even rooftop bars! - so we hopped in a cab and had dinner at the bar around the corner, and then stopped off at Insomnia Cookies for cookies. Which I didn't eat last night, but which will be my breakfast this morning.

All in all, it was a lovely evening, and I got to wear my star-print sun dress from eShakti, which is such a pretty dress, guys. I love it a lot.

I also have been catching up on Gotham Academy so I can make my yuletide request, and when Amy showed up in Second Semester, I at first thought, ugh, did they try to shove Harper in here as well? but I sincerely doubt Harper would ever do the nasty things Amy does, so it's not her undercover. Whew. I'll probably have more to say on Wednesday!

musesfool: Princess Leia (so what level up)
I left work slightly early yesterday and today has been calmer, thankfully. I'm still dragging and my brain is on a bit of a time delay - why is sleeping so hard? even when I'm so tired? - but it's Friday and it's almost over.

Today, while I've been collating etc., I've been thinking about how in Leia, Princess of Alderaan, spoilers )

I really want to read that story without having to write it. You should get on that, stat.

***
musesfool: Artemis from animated Young Justice, drawing her bow (a woman's got ambition)
I missed reading Wednesday in all the madness, but things are slightly calmer at the moment (though the MTA didn't help this morning with the 1, 2, and 3 being suspended. I had to walk through that long tunnel to the A, C, E at 42nd Street, which is at least slightly less rank than it used to be but also this morning it was full of a ton of extra people unhappy about being there), so books:

What I've just finished
Wonder Woman: Warbringer by Leigh Bardugo, which I loved after I got over my slight disappointment about it being an origin story. I liked that Diana got to save the world with a couple of teenage girls and recontextualize Helen of Troy a little while she was at it. Also, it reinforced the notion that spoiler ).

Star Wars #36, which I'll talk about by itself, since it is pretty self-contained. This is the issue where Artoo finally gets to the Devastator(? I think?) to rescue Threepio, and it's very cleverly done imo, with the narration telling us all sorts of typical instruction manual specs about the R2 astromech line, and Artoo being his usual badass self, thanks in part to some programming upgrades, some very skilled teachers, and of course, a complete lack of memory wipes. Everyone knows he's the real hero of the rebellion. (Sadly, he doesn't ever get to give Vader the tongue-lashing he deserves but I will just go on including that in every story I write, because it pleases me to do so. *g*)

What I'm reading now
A Ruin of Angels by Max Gladstone, which is the sixth Craft sequence book - featuring Kai Pohala and her previously unmet sister, with a cameo (so far - could end up being more?) by Tara Abernathy. I'm enjoying it so far, but as usual, the random references to our world always make me blink - is this a super alternate universe? a far-flung future? Like, I guess I could accept a coffeehouse employee being a barista, even though there is no Italy in this world, but then it makes a Rent or a Casablanca reference, and I'm like, that is very specific to our world! I dunno. It's kind of a weird thing to get hung up on, but it strikes me every time.

What I'm reading next
*hands* One of the things I did last weekend, in addition to getting rid of more books and dvds, was to start sorting through all the books I've downloaded and adding them to iBooks or Calibre (though I can no longer dedrm kindle books via Calibre, which sucks), so I have a lot more books than I realized and they're mostly sitting around on my iPad waiting to be read.

Lastly, here's a link: Ranking the Robin Hood Adaptations — Which Tales Fly Truest?

It gets it right, I think, though there's a sad lack of appreciation of Alan Rickman's Sheriff of Nottingham, which is the only reason to watch the Kevin Costner version, and Robin and the Seven Hoods doesn't even get a mention! But I think the one-two punch of Errol Flynn and that Disney fox is the correct answer.

(I feel like there is also a sad lack of Jason Todd references in this post - after all, he was Robin and now he's a Hood - but I'm too frazzled to come up with good ones. Take it as read that Robins as in Batfam are never far from my thoughts.)

musesfool: jason todd is not all right (always all right)
Yesterday, I ate my breakfast at 12:30 and then just didn't eat lunch. I could rant about what I think is poor time management and poor organization, which given the fact that I have never in my life not procrastinated on a thing to the last possible moment, would be really saying something, but I won't. It's pointless. I'm just here to redo all my edits because someone kept editing a(n old version of a) document after they sent it to me for updating. Whatever.

Monday night, I was here late and then L and I met up on the spur of the moment and I had three pints of beer, which I haven't done in years and which I should never ever do on a weeknight again. Ugh. I am officially too old for this shit.

Last night, I got home by 7 and just sat on the couch refreshing Tumblr and playing 1010 until it was time to go to bed. Yes, I know I said I deleted it off my phone, and I did, but that didn't remove it from my iPad, so I still have it (and I re-downloaded it to my phone the other day when I was waiting for a train) but I also found it online so I can just play on my laptop now. *hands*

In better news, I heard from the loan officer that my loan commitment letter is preliminarily approved but they needed me to send a bunch of documents I've already sent them twice, plus one new thing that just proves what a dumb racket the whole credit thing is because I have excellent credit, but since I've tried to purchase a home, my credit has been checked three times since April, which is concerning to them. The fact that it's all been in service of trying to get a mortgage, and that no additional lines of credit have yet been opened, doesn't seem to matter. It's like if you have too many accounts, they tell you it has a negative impact, but if you close an account to have fewer, that is also a negative. You carry a balance, which means you have debt! but if you pay it off every month, then that's a negative because you have no outstanding loans! No matter what you do you can't win, which is a clear indication that the whole thing is rigged against you.

I might just be exhausted and ranting. I don't even know. Anyway. Once I get the loan commitment letter, I have to send in the board application package and hope they call me for an interview. Of course this is happening at the same time I'm prepping for my actual board meeting (see above re: work), so the timing is terrible.

I did have a very cool dream where I visited [personal profile] destina and she fed me very fancy pasta and then we went to a murder mystery reenactment.

Lastly, I did my yuletide nominations while I had a free moment, because I didn't want to forget, so this is what they are right now:

Six of Crows
Inej Ghafa
Kaz Brekker
Nina Zenik
Nikolai Lantsov

The Middleman
Wendy Watson
The Middleman
Ida
Noser

Gotham Academy
Olive Silverlock
Mia "Maps" Mizoguchi
Pomeline Fritch
Damian Wayne

I guess I'll let you know if I change my mind.

Indecent Suggestion (16340 words) by aralias
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Blake's 7
Rating: Explicit
Warnings: Creator Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings
Relationships: Kerr Avon/Roj Blake
Characters: Roj Blake, Kerr Avon, Ensemble
Additional Tags: Community: unconventionalcourtship, Hypnotism, Episode: s02e10 Voice from the Past
Summary:

There has been a mistake! When Roj Blake and Kerr Avon go to a hypnotherapist, they expect to be deprogrammed, removing the residual influence of Glynd’s ‘course interceptor’. Clearly the treatment hasn't worked, because Blake is still acting strangely. Oh, and now they're having sex. Lots and lots of sex. And it's definitely changing things between them.

Lovers come and go, but what about the needs of the revolution? Is Blake ready to sacrifice his goals for the sake of a little--okay, a lot--of seductive satisfaction? And yet, how can he possibly resist such an indecently sensual suggestion?



and if you liked that (which is not completely implausible), here's some thoughts about picking this fic up 3 years on

musesfool: jar of flower petals, spilling (but there is this)
this day is always weird and solemn, and for the past 15 years, I would call my dad and we'd be thankful he'd survived a terrorist attack (2 actually, since he was there in '93 too), but now he's gone.

The six-month anniversary of his death is Thursday, and then the fourth anniversary of my mother's death is a week from Saturday, so this is a rough stretch to get through, I guess.

On the other hand, work has been so ridiculously hectic that this is the first moment I've had to breathe since I walked in the door, so it kept my mind occupied, which is good. I might just crawl into bed when I get home. I feel like I could sleep forever, but the rest of this work week is going to be busy too, since we're gearing up for a board meeting next week. Boss1 bought me flowers to brighten me up.

musesfool: lester bangs on rock'n'roll (music)
Yesterday, I had that awful achy skin feverish feeling and got nothing done. I just wanted soft, comforting things, so I went to finish my AtLA rewatch and discovered that it was no longer free as part of Amazon Prime! WTF?! I didn't feel like digging out my dvds (hush), so I ended up watching the back half of The West Wing season 2, and then this morning I watched "Two Cathedrals" and those final six minutes set to "Brothers in Arms" might be the best use of music on a tv show ever.

Which started me thinking about other iconic musical cues from TV shows, and this is a very short, very incomplete list:

- "Renegade" in the SPN episode "Nightshifter"
- "Don't Fear the Reaper" in the SPN episode "Faith"
- "Bad Moon Rising" in the SPN episode "Devil's Trap"

I could probably fill this list with ONLY SPN moments, so here are some others:

- "Full of Grace" aka, "the song at the end of Becoming II"
- "Devil Town" in the opening and closing episodes of s1 of Friday Night Lights
- "Come Back" in the FNL episode "Wind Sprints"
- "Eli's Coming" in the Sports Night episode of the same name
- "There She Goes" in the pilot of Gilmore Girls
- "Momentary Thing" over Veronica and Logan's kiss in VMars
- "In Your Wildest Dreams" in the HLotS episode "Full Moon"

I'm sure there are many others - what am I missing? I know "Life" used music excellently but I'm blanking on any specific moments right now.

*let's take any moment that uses "Hallelujah" out of the running for now. I still haven't recovered from its overuse in the late 90s.

musesfool: text icon: Gryffindor: We have done the impossible and that makes us mighty. (we have done the impossible)
Here's a fanfic meme from [personal profile] misbegotten, but it's 50 questions long so I'm breaking it up into parts and will eventually answer them all.

So here's part 1:

Fandom Questions

1. What was the first fandom you got involved in?
Online? Homicide: Life on the Street. alt.tv.homicide was the first newsgroup I lurked on and then participated in. We're coming up on the 20th anniversary of that: November 1997!

It was an amazing newsgroup to break into online fandom with, and it was highly influential on my online behavior.

2. What is your latest fandom?
Latest, and also one of my oldest fandoms: Star Wars. I blame The Clone Wars and also The Force Awakens. The former for making me care about Anakin Skywalker *shakes tiny ineffectual fist* and the latter for giving me Rey and Finn and GENERAL ORGANA.

3. What is the best fandom you’ve ever been involved in?
Aw, they're all great (and terrible) in their own ways. Maybe MCU circa 2012 when Avengers came out, because it was sort of the culmination of friendships that formed when I was in XMM twelve years before. Harry Potter was great because it was such an upswell of creativity and making connections with other fans.

I don't really feel like I belong to any one fandom these days - everything is so disconnected and I don't really have a sense of community in Star Wars. It's more like my DW flist is my fandom, and to a lesser extent, my tumblr dash.

4. Do you regret getting involved in any fandoms?
Ahahahahaha. I regret the way my participation in a couple of them ended.

5. Which fandoms have you written fanfiction for?
Ahahahaha! According to AO3, and including one-offs, and lumping various comics and movie properties into umbrella fandoms, here is the list:

~68 or so fandoms )

6. List your OTP from each fandom you’ve been involved in.
I don't always have an OTP, but here are a few:

HP: Remus/Sirius, James/Lily, Harry/Ron/Hermione
Star Wars: Han/Leia, Rey/Finn/Poe, Baze/Chirrut
Ocean's Eleven: Danny/Rusty
Narnia: Cor/Aravis
MCU: Steve/Bucky, Tony/Pepper
DCU: Tim/Kon, Clark/Lois
XMM: Logan/Rogue, Charles/Erik
The West Wing: Josh/Donna
Gilmore Girls: Luke/Lorelai
FNL: Coach/Mrs. Coach

7. List your NoTPs from each fandom you’ve been in.
I don't always have a NoTP, but here are the ones I very definitely do have:

Marvel: Steve/Tony
Star Wars: Reylo
XMM: Jean/Logan
SPN: Dean/Cas
DCU: Clark/Diana
Gilmore Girls: Christopher/Lorelai

8. How did you get involved in your latest fandom?
It's Star Wars? I've been involved in it, or at least a fan of it, since 1977? If you mean how did I suddenly start writing fic for it after years of not writing fic for it? Well, Ahsoka Tano's appearance is a major key to that, as well as the sad lack of stuff dealing with Leia and Vader's relationship. And of course, the Clone Wars made me invested in Anakin Skywalker, and also provided me with characters like Satine Kryze and Asajj Ventress, whom I love! Those were the main things that I was interested in, and then Rey and Finn came along and I wanted to know more about them, too.

9. What are the best things about your current fandom?
Nearly everybody knows a little bit about it, so you can enthuse about it in public without getting odd looks from people. (Otoh, when you say something like, "But I really like Anakin Skywalker!" be prepared for people to judge you, and not even silently. *hands*)

10. Is there a fandom you read fic from but don’t write in?
Oh yeah. Mostly Yuletide fandoms (e.g., Queen's Thief, Gentleman Bastards, Rivers of London) or things like Discworld or Good Omens, where I would like to write but just haven't really had any good ideas. This also goes for a lot of the one-off fandoms I've written in - I'd like to write more iZombie or Arrow or Sports Night, but I just don't really have ideas for them.

I guess that's a good start!

The Leftovers

Sep. 9th, 2017 10:46 am[personal profile] sheafrotherdon
sheafrotherdon: (Default)
Who among us has seen the HBO show The Leftovers? My friend, M, got me hooked - or rather, she wouldn't stop talking about the show, and introduced me to the achingly lovely score, and then earlier in the week I figured hey, why not watch the pilot and see how it is? And now it's ten episodes later and I am hooked.

If you haven't seen the show, the premise is that, without warning, 2% of the world's population disappears one October 14th. The show picks up the story three years later as everyone's still grappling with their loss. (The premise might sound sort of like the rapture, but it's not - it's never handled as that in the show, and ultimately you get the suggestion of other reasons why people disappeared.) The main protagonist is Kevin Garvey, the chief of police in a small, upstate NY town. He appears not to have lost anyone in the event, but he loses everyone just the same. His wife is in a cult-like group in town. His son is with a charismatic religious figure in the southwest. His daughter is deeply fucked up and remote. His dad is committed to a psychiatric hospital.

And then there's Matt, a local preacher, who lost one version of his wife, Mary. And Nora, who lost her husband and two children in the event. There's Patti, who's in charge of the cult, and Meg, who wants to join, and the town's mayor, Lucy, who is trying to chart a path through increasingly turbulent waters.

It's a slow burn of a show - I wasn't bowled over by it, but rather won over by it. Every episode the writers would drop a nugget of information about a character and I'd realize that meant X or Y, and then have to keep watching to see how that impacted everyone else, and before you knew it, it was episode ten and every, damn, thing in the show tied together. It was gorgeous.

Fair warning - in the first couple of episodes, as well as episode seven or eight, a dog (or dogs) are shot. If that's a deal-breaker, this wouldn't be the show for you. There's also some pretty graphic violence.

If you've seen it, talk to me about it!
musesfool: baby Terry from Batman & Sons (it's always time for hugs)
Friday grab bag:

A. Ugh, the trains were disgustingly crowded and slow this morning, and then there was some sort of croissant crisis at the other Starbucks, so the waiting area was jammed with people waiting for pastries that were never going to come. On the plus side, it's Friday! on the minus side, we're back to full days on Friday. *sob*

ii. I forgot Timeless on my potential Yuletide noms post yesterday! Certainly Wyatt, Lucy, Jiya, and Rufus should all get nommed by someone who isn't me. Agent Christopher, too, I hope!

3. Some reading material:
- Donald Trump: the First White President by Ta-Nehisi Coates

- And something a little lighter: Mets Legend Keith Hernandez On Baseball, Books, Broadcasting And Battles at SI.com

d. And speaking of the Mets, y'all saw Dylan O'Brien throw out the first pitch the other night, right? He was very cute about the whole thing, though if I closed my eyes, he sounded like uncannily like my older nephew.

V. from the we make our own fun file: Batman & Darth Vader: two sides of the same coin? I amuse myself, anyway.

5a. And for more serious meta: the dark side is a choice. Oh Anakin. I'm probably gonna have to read this book aren't I? Sigh. #i'm not mad i'm just disappointed #i hate that i have ~feelings about darth vader now #the most problematic fave

5b. and for my own amusement - and from a different comic - someone telling vader what we'd all like to.
