An update on the restoration work front (said front being caused by F*ckbucket's new 3rd Party Hostage rules):
The kitchen section has been fully re-equppied with its according photos.
Several opera posts (not always in chronological order) have been rescued as well, but due to the sheer amount of them, this category will take longer.
Larger opera posts restored within the past few days, amidst cursing and more cursing, include:
- The grand Hogwarts Rinaldo After Dark School Special on the Glyndebourne "Rinaldo" with Sonia Prina,
- the "Why Opera Was Invented For Lesbians" Alcina break-down, and
- the "Troyens = Troygays" post featuring Antonacci and the Anna/Didon romance.
Most of my limited blogging time continues to go into these restoring efforts at the moment, which is why there are fewer posts overall.
(the TDU recaps, though I plan to get to them eventually, will have to wait at the end of the line simply because they are very photo-heavy and not a priority at the moment)
These restoration efforts also take over what little I had managed to organize as fiction writing time this summer, to finally continue with "Stages", which is stuck in the middle of Chapter 16 even though the outline through to chapter 30+ is done and detailed.
