COMMENT!

Well, our Indian Summer draws to a close. And I spent most of it sitting in this chair, and word from the front never came. As it were.

But, at least none of you have to remember President Humphrey K. Ludwig, or the mess that Irwin Allen made of Dr. Zhivago, or (and especially) about the science-fiction convention in Los Vegas (CONsino) during which a splinter cell of angry, disenfranchised furries detonated a twenty-kiloton nuclear device...all that, at least, has been set straight. The past is the past once more. Well...except that thing with Menudo, and the McRib. Sorry. Those, I couldn't fix.

Oh, and that thing with Frank Black yesterday? Of course I meant Frank Booth. But you never sacrifice a wonderful run-on, run-out, not-quite free-association tirade over anything so tiresome as fact. Frank Booth would never have gotten me to Frank Black (née Black Francis), or Frank Black (sensu Millennium), or even the guy in the creepy rabbit mask.

Honestly? I have no idea what I'm supposed to be writing about, that's why?

There's not much to report from yesterday, not that I can report. Kathryn and I continue trying to pull everything together for The Drowning Girl: A Memoir book-trailer shoot this coming weekend. Yesterday, I spoke with Nicola (our Imp) and Dani (our Abalyn), as well as with Brian (our cinematographer). And this past weekend would have been dead-on fucking perfect for the shoot, and next weekend is looking maybe a little doubtful. But there's no way we could have known, and we'll have to take what we can get. There's no time left for rain dates. This should have been shot in July, but work and scheduling conflicts and whatnot continually pushed the date back. And, so, this is it. We are fortunate in that New England is having a lousy autumn, in terms of the trees changing colors, so it still looks fairly summery up here.

Have you ordered Two Worlds and In Between? Have you clicked "like" on the absurdly early Amazon.com preorder page for The Drowning Girl: A Memoir? Have you subscribed to Sirenia Digest? Well, why the hell not? Wait. Don't tell me.

A good bit of RP (including a bizarrely Fringe-like moment...think Olivia/Fauxlivia) in Insilico RP last night with [livejournal.com profile] readingthedark. Last night also marked the first time I've ever RPed two characters in SL at once (on two machines, with two open viewers). It was weird, and while it wasn't easy, it wasn't as hard as I'd thought it would be. And we watched three more episodes of Mad Men (Season Four). And I read, from Halloween, a pretty good story by William F. Nolan, "The Halloween Man." And then I slept, and had unspeakable dreams. Unspeakable at least in the sense that they are now so fragmented that I could not reconstruct them well enough to speak of them. And that, kittens, was yesterday.

Today looks...indefinite. But I leave you with these. Back to that something Spooky and I did night before last that I only mentioned in passing yesterday. I think these two shots are work safe. All the others weren't. And there will be future sessions (after I've lost that Hubero) that will produce very not work-safe images. But these are pretty vanilla. Unless you work for, I don't know, Pat fucking Roberson (or did he die?). Spooky was in the mood to paint, and I was in the mood to be a canvas:

What gorgeous body art! I love the top one and can imagine them as vestigial wings starting to grow out of your spine.

Seconded on the painting; beautiful colours.I've flicked between the two pictures and it's almost as if the art has changed shape.

I finally got my finger out and ordered Two Worlds from Subpress. None too soon, it seems.

I think she was aiming for the sea, feathers, and flowers, all at once.

Thank you. It was interesting working so large, and on a living surface. It left me wanting to paint a HUGE (for me) painting. One with waves and fins.

Yes, I saw waves. If I was being really fanciful, I'd say that the tide was turning on your back.

Those colors are lovely on your skin - the second photo in particular has the look of waves.

(PS - did order "Two Worlds...", finally. Can't wait to read it.)

1) You're not fat.
2) Fat is where it's at, and that's that.
3) Personally, though, I prefer the term "large and in charge."
4) You make a very fine living canvas.
5) Spooky makes for a very fine artist.

(At work, have to log off now. Which is probably why I wrote this in number format.)

Again, not buying the Hubero thing. Also forgot to say that Spooky doesn't need to lose a cat, either. You two are just blind as bats. Paint on.

A true work of Art. Beautiful...

Also, it amuses me to tell you that I bought Threshold and Low Red Moon for my Kindle. I have the books already, of course, two of each. Different editions. So this makes three, and it's lovely re-reading Threshold in a completely different way. Makes it all seem new again!

I know you're not into eBooks/eReaders, but for what it's worth they are both formatted really well (some ebooks suck in terms of layout, errors, etc.).

Is this oil or acrylic, and was it hard to wash off?

Acrylic, and it was more a matter of peeling off than washing off. Pretty easy once it dried. Next, though, I think we're gonna use something oil based, so avoid the cracking, wrinkling effect you can get if the model moves.

Beautiful pictures :)

This week has been for fairy tales. Of a sort. There have been words.

I'm ever so slightly unsettled by the impending horror of NaNo. Let's just say, I don't approve of it.

Quite so. The phrase "fucking retarded" frequently appears in my expressions of said disapproval.

But, then again, we have established that I am arrogant, so. That's probably to be expected.

My brain feels jump-cutty tonight. I want to write (a fairytale about a sleep-robber, a personified insomnia qua supernatural cat-burglar), but I am le tired. The Seroquel has sent Monsieur Insomnia and his occasional paramour, the Midnight Muse, a-packing. I hope they don't show up at your place and invite themselves for the night.

the longness of you....

what endures (my sense of it) in reading your stuff is a feeling that you are reading the stories to me. like your there telling me the story??? i love the feeling (even if it's me dreaming it).

Pretty. One of my favorite things sensation wise, be it paint or ink, brushes or calligraphy nibs. I think at least part of the love came from The Pillow Book because the writing was so beautiful, but I'd been writing on myself since fourth grade or so (ie: in the 70's).
