Life is beautiful and life is stupid. This is, in fact, widely regarded as a universal rule not less inviolable than the Second Law of Thermodynamics, the Uncertainty Principle, and No Post on Sundays. As long as you keep that in mind, and never give more weight to one than the other, the history of the galaxy is a simple tune with lyrics flashed on-screen and a helpful, friendly bouncing disco ball of all-annihilating flames to help you follow along. This book is that disco ball.
Cue the music. Cue the lights.
Lillelara and I have started the long-awaited new book by Catherynne M. Valente as a buddy read. Long-awaited because the title and subtitle "Space Opera - In Space, Everyone Can Hear You Sing" sounds way too hilarious to pass up on.
If the first few pages are anything to go by, this will be a very quotable book, so there may be lots of update posts spamming your feeds.
Also, am I the only one thinking it is time to plan the annual party for the Eurovision Song Contest?
