Beautiful Music
I was researching music that might have been popular in Regency times for one of the Big Bang fics, and came across Gluck, and then this BBC performance of Gluck's Orfeo ed Euridice.

A lot of this opera is familiar to my ear, I just couldn't put a name to where it came from before. It's one of those things that I feel like I always must have known, and now that it's in my life it fits perfectly.

Crocodile Fairy Tale
A fic I did beta for is now up. I can recommend it if you like nicely crafted fairy tales about lady crocodiles and princes.

...been playing the stupid sexy Rupert Graves edition of the addictive tile game 2048 while listening to early twentieth century blues and jazz on Youtube.

This is such a great era in which to be a loafer. So much free content. I don't even mean illegal downloads either. There are literally hundreds of thousands of books out there waiting to be read for free, whether because they're out of copyright (see Project Gutenberg) or because their authors have given them away. (See [livejournal.com profile] the_slash_pile for original slash novels for free.) That's not even counting the free games, the free legal music online, the free art and the free periodicals.

We live in an astounding age.
