So yesterday, I read The Shepherd's Crown. It's the fifth Tiffany Aching book, and the last Discworld book.
The last Terry Pratchett book. It feels so odd knowing it's over. There won't be any more. This one was shorter and more draft like because he didn't get the chance to finish cleaning it up, but it's easy to see what it would have been.
And it's still sad and perfect.
I get the feeling he was saying goodbye to his readers. I won't yet say why.
I thought it was a good ending to the Tiffany Aching series. Brings it full circle. Doesn't really tie things up for the rest of the Discworld, but that's okay because we can have fun imagining all those lives going on, all the things they have yet to do.

Prog metal + sitar (Indian classical instrument) = Agent can die happy. They've done what I thought was impossible: prog combined with Indian classical sounds, and it's amazing.
One very rarely sees Indian classical music combined well with Western styles because it's nearly impossible. They're two completely different musical systems. I'm not talking about Bollywood/film style, which is pop and lends itself well to fusion, but lesser known Indian classical, which works very differently. Most fusion that I've seen tends to be skewed towards one direction, where one style eats the other. That's what makes it all the more impressive that they managed to do it without compromising the beauty of either style!
I used to learn veenai (another Indian classical instrument) but had to stop when school work ate my life, and then I tried learning guitar, but tendonitis got in the way. I've been meaning to start up again, but...dang. I think I'm going to go hide under a blanket now. And maybe practice more. *mangles the two chords she knows how to play*
tyess: Hello. So... what has happened this year?

mim: I wrote smut to amuse myself, but it forgot to become smut. They ended up fighting instead of in bed. Which was a problem when they were fanfic characters on a site too, actually...
