hahahaha. I'll probably eventually google "Watch (insert name of show here) online streaming free" -_- i try to pay for stuff (or, let's be honest, let boyfriend pay for me) cause i know how hard people work on things like tv shows. i haven't illegally downloaded music in years. or if i do, i buy a tshirt from the band to make up for it. -_-

I feel like the worst part of this challenge so far is that I want to start reading, but I can't bring myself to count a book I read in between now and Monday as a 2018 book lol...

fair enough, Claire. we have netflix, and if it's not on there, i just use watchseries. to be perfectly honest, we really have no take-home pay - it all goes to bills and paying down the credit cards. *sigh*

sylvan - tee hee.....

Okay also on The Handmaid's Tale hulu series... I don't think I've ever said this before about anything else, but the show is better than the book. They delve a lot deeper into the world than the book does. Even the author herself said that the show added another, much needed, dimension to the book.

if i recall correctly, doesn't she work on the show too? (like GRRMartin with Game of Thrones)

Also, Margaret Atwood has a cameo on the first episode as one of the Aunts ;)

so, her being involved somehow on the show might be why it worked so well.

any ideas when S2 will be released?

I want to read more Atwood too, but I'm staying far away from Handmaid as I'm sure I will not like the themes.

I read Surfacing and Oryx and Crake in college and Uni. (Neuromancer as well (lit degrees are great!).

I'm making myself a tiny list as well, just one book a month. The Princess Diarist will also be in there. My mom got me the memoir on Gordie Howe for Christmas, so I want to read that as well.

Maybe I should just make a list of books.

I wanna read Neuromancer because one of my favorite books is Snow Crash from Neal Stephenson and I know cyberpunk doesn't exist probably without Nueormancer. -_- I feel like that's one I should have read a long time ago.

Handmaid's Tale was hard to read at points because of how real it felt to me, but I'm a radical feminist so I might have a different perspective on the subject matter than most people. uwu

Liberal Feminist here, and I fully expect the story to make me angry and annoyed, so just not going there. I don't like to be sour with books I'm reading for leisure.

Apparently, Gibson went to see Blade Runner in theater when he was writing Neuromancer and it looked so much like the world inside his head he had to leave the theater.

You'd have to add Phillip K. Dick in there if you want to talk cyberpunk. I'm interested in the genre but haven't actually read too much into it. We read Neuromancer in my Literature and Popular Culture course in the section on cyberpunk, as inspiration for things like The Matrix

woooow. that's interesting about Gibson and Blade Runner. I haven't ready anything by Phillip K Dick, but there are a couple that I am aware are majorly majorly MAJORLY important to the genre. I fell in love with cyberpunk because anime lol.
