* Inbox zero!!!! Has been a long time coming, so: FINALLY.

* Does anyone have any (online, preferably) shop recommendations for storage solutions for paper/stationery/etc? Ikea have some lovely things, but their delivery charge is exorbitant and I most certainly don't have the spoons for a trip to Croydon any time soon.

* Night Vale live next month EEEEEE.

* Work is going well! Have resolved some slightly snarly client stuff and am getting things done. Last couple of weeks have been really rough but I'm working my way back to where I want to be.

* I am not getting much (any) writing done and I'm slightly panicking about that 'cause it's Exchange Season and i have no idea what I want to nominate for Yuletide.

* I'm also not reading much, but this is an Ongoing Pattern and has been for at least a year. I have zero attention span.

* I think that's it for now!

A link!

This article on queerness in Night Vale from [personal profile] thingswithwings is a really, really interesting read and if you are into Welcome to Night Vale I highly recommend it.

Think about this reversal, listeners. Think about the horror story where we side with the strangeness and the darkness and the monsters hidden from view. Where the bright yellow sunshine of Strexcorp threatens to burn away the angelic darkness protecting Old Woman Josie; where Intern Vithya ascends to heaven pulsing with a "dark aura."

Really. Go read.

So this is about to be followed up with some heavy-duty Googling, but I thought I would ask my lovely dwroll as well.

I'm looking for media that meet the following criteria:

* Fictional media written in the West (preferably the USA, but I'll also take Western European and Canadian stuff) that deals with or portrays the USSR (and to a lesser extent the rest of the Eastern Bloc) during the Cold War. Contemporary stuff is preferred over historical or retrospective stuff, as most of what I'm interested in is attitudes back then, but I'm also interested in modern-day representations of what happened back then.
* Fictional media written in the West about Communism and Communist governments more generally.
* Articles on the Western perception of the USSR/Eastern Bloc and Communism during the Cold War. Scholarly, journalistic and just-a-person-thinking-about-it articles are all welcome here, but please bear in mind that I'm not attached to a university and don't have easy journal access.

Yes, so I might be thinking about writing an essay on how Night Vale is influenced by Western/capitalist ideas about Communist governments.
randomling: Peter Bishop (Fringe) ponders something. (peter)
This is a placeholder, so I can put this URL in my sign-ups. I will extemporise later, when I've decided what I actually want.

Also, I need a Night Vale icon.
