Well, the day is still moderately young – three hours and forty-six minutes of daylight remaining – and already someone has managed to piss me off. And I'm behind on work, and angry, and therefore this will be a short entry.

Sirenia Digest #73 went out to subscribers early last night, and I'd love to hear feedback. I do apologize that the second chapter of the original 1993 Silk text was omitted. As I was doing the layout, MS Word decided there was something corrupt about the old file (last updated 1994) on my machine – though it was never an issue before – and freaked out. It took me about an hour to get Word working again. Since then, I've figured out a somewhat circuitous solution to the problem, and Chapter Two will appear next month, in Sirenia Digest #74.

Fuck, but I wish the ceiling in my office would support a punching bag.

Today will be spent making edits to Alabaster #3 and on a conversation with my agent.

Oh, also, if you'd like to purchase a print of one of [livejournal.com profile] kylecassidy's beautiful still shots inspired by The Drowning Girl: A Memoir, just follow this link. Later, there will be a page on the website devoted to ordering the prints.

Weary of Nonsense,
Aunt Beast

I've only read the Prolegomenon in Sirenia Digest so far, but that was brilliantly done IMO. Also, the cover image got me dropping my jaw on the floor (yes, dropping, more than once).

And that's only part of the image. I wish I'd had room to use the whole painting.

I'll definitely pursue it. Though I admit, now I'm imagining an "In The Mouth Of Madness"-esque collage of Sirenia cover images...

I like the clinical voice of "Blast the Human Flower," but I love "The Lost Language of Littoral Mollusca and Crustacea." Some of its entries seem to call for Edward Gorey. ("Strife, Ennui, Buy more snuff.") Some are very nearly five-word short stories. I am looking forward greatly to Part Two.

This all makes me very, very happy. Spooky also loved "Buy more snuff."

I keep aiming to have some sort of compassion for assholes, but it’s very difficult

its so not worth it, and they never fully appreciate it either, nor comprehend why... now, if pouring salt on them would work correctly...

It's just utterly pointless. They remain assholes. You may as well try to stop plate tectonics, or get the tea party assholes to stop queer bashing.

The trailer and photos are beautiful - for lack of a better word, beautiful is inadequate but the brain isn't able to find the right words. Bow Tie to the Nth? (and I did groan to myself as I wrote that.)

Since Cephalopodmas I am seeing cephalopods online everywhere.
I shared a bow tie photo on FB for you bc it is well, bow tie, and the idea of a photo gallery of pre-talkie cephalopods pings the brain, in a good way.

That works for me. Kyle and Brian did a bow-tie job!

I saw it, and thank you.

I have to say I like both a lot. Blast the Human Flower appeals to my phytophiliac streak; but The Lost Language is *delightful*. Favourite entry: "beware of one-eyed women bearing gifts". It would be lovely to see this as a monograph-cum-chapbook, with lots of pen-and-ink drawings (I've read it on the mobile, so I have yet to check out the true artwork).

To the next episode, brava Aunt B.
