K Tempest Tumbles

I'm K. Tempest Bradford, a writer, blogger, tech geek, and all around nerd. I'm such a big science fiction/fantasy/speculative fiction fan that I even write it (I know, pretty hard core!).

I have a non-Tumblr blog and that's where the majority of my long-form posts go. This blog is for my more fannish activities, link sharing, and squeeness.

About to see a preview of Guardians of the Galaxy while wearing futuristic glasses. #365feministselfie

Here’s the Black is Blue lipstick again. No filter this time. I’m still not convinced, but I’m not as horrified as before. Thoughts? #severelipstick #365feministselfie

It’s the weekend and time again for some short story love. There’s a particularly awesome novelette tucked in here this week. And I continue to sing the praises of C. C. Finlay’s turn as guest editor of F&SF:

"C. C. Finlay did an excellent job as guest editor, to the point where I got through this entire issue without wanting to throw it across the room once and found multiple stories I loved a lot. This hasn’t happened for me with this magazine since… ever."

Next weekend you’ll find out why I’m so angry at this lipstick. #365feministselfie

​io9 Newsstand: Best Short Stories for the Week of July 21 - 26

Themes and synchronicities keep popping up in my short story reading. Many of this week’s stores are about witches and demons and dangerous feminine magical powers of awesome. Not all of them. The others are just about cruelty and theater and magic and desperation. Normal stuff.

I tried a new lipstick today. Didn’t quite work out. #365feministselfie

Gourmet peanut butter is my kryptonite. #365feministselfie

The other weekend ReaderCon happened and, on the whole, I had a great time. I am sad I had to leave early to go to a wedding in the city, but that’s way better than missing everything. ReaderCon is usually a good time, even as much as we snark about…

Liveblogging Jem: Episode 11 

- Title: Last Resorts. That sounds SUPER REASSURING. I’m sure this resort vacation is going to go GREAT! 

- “Frank! Are you okay? It sounds like you’re being extorted.” 
" Well, I am." 
… that was surprisingly straightforward. Getting right to the point. I like it. 

- Wait, guys, what if this dude is in debt because he sponsored THE MISFITS? YOU DON’T KNOW HIM. It could all be a TRAP. RUUUUUUN. 

- Did Jem just get rescued by a sexy german ski aerialist? Did she just get rescued from a SNOWBALL FIGHT by a sexy german ski aerialist? 
… okay. 

- Rio, upon seeing the sexy german ski aerialist: “I brought the equipment. You can practice now. IF YOU’VE GOT THE TIME.” 
My boyfriend: “Shut up, Rio.” 

- OH MY GOD THEY ACTUALLY ADDRESSED IT! 
Jem: “I thought it was Jerrica you cared about?” 
Sven: “Oh, come on, you can’t have two girlfriends and me with none.” 
THEY ADDRESSED IT
HOLY MOTHER OF SEXY GERMAN SKI AERIALISTS, THEY HAVE ADDRESSED THAT RIO IS MAKING OUT WITH TWO DIFFERENT WOMEN

- Did Sven just off ski backwards into the sunset? Did he just call out Rio and then ski off into the sunset? Backwards?  I LUV U SVEN! 

- Of course Kimber wants Sven. HE’S MINE, KIMBER

- You’re wagering a resort on a ski race between two rock groups? ooooooooookay? A SKI RACE? Between ROCK BANDS?  

- WHY DOES THEIR MAKEUP NEVER RUN EVEN WHEN THEY’RE SWEATING? 

- Pizzaz just threw herself onto Clash’s ass. This show is getting so much more homoerotic. 

- Also, I just realized that if you don’t know who “pizzaz and clash” are, that sentence seems pretty weird. 

- Svenson is my still my favorite. “Ah, yes, I actually bothered to catch the bad guys! I am a competent ski instructor.” 

- Why is Jem wearing an apron on her head? 

- The eighties were truly a different time. 

ktempest, this is all your fault. 

I take full responsibility. Glad to do so. because ahahahahahahahaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
