And then "Coffee and Porn in the Morning" (one of my favorite blogs -- hot picture blog run by a bi writer chick YES PLEASE) totally posted a picture that looks just like Mal and Theo (no tattoo though -- too bad!)last night:

mostly naked boys kissing so prrrrrrrrrrrrobably nsfw )

But all of my life, I’ve been treated like a fool [Jan. 10th, 2012|04:18 pm]

I am so fucking sick. I don't know what's up with my stomach lately. I mean, I expected some pain after the holidays, but I swear to god I'm becoming so fucking delicate in my old age. WTF. Plus my head hurts and I'm achey --

So actually, I'm pretty sure I have the flu or something.

Oh well. I have Kasabian tickets for March 20. If anyone wants to go, I got an extra!

Also, Theo has a theme song.

Jesus. How convenient that they're one of Malory's favorite bands...

Sorry. I just. I mean. I always thought of Paul Banks when I wrote about Dart's looks. But THAT PICTURE OH MY GOD.

ETA: Non tumblr-stretched version here!

My inner Becca just went a little weak-kneed. Then went back to wanting to alternately fuck Tommy's brains out and punch Tommy in the throat.

But still.

(Actually, my inner Paul [Appleby] even went a little weak-kneed, but we all know the guy's queer as a three dollar bill and just doesn't know it, right? Right.)

There should be an annotated version of The Resurrectionists that uses John and Meghan's comments, I swear to god. They're so much better than the text. I'm sitting here editing from John's version and I know Megh's cracked me up hard on the last draft, too.

As a sample, from the bit I just edited (which is full of such rad hilarity leading up to this point, too):

Tom, meeting her stony glare with one of his own, only slightly different for the hint of smugness about the mouth and eyes, said, "Miss Hannah, it's nothing for which your admirable beau ought to feel ashamed. As I have long said, God has not left him without resources--and surely He would not be so cruel to the rest of our sex as to endow one man with every desirable quality. What woman would deign to speak to the rest of us?"

Hannah's smile twisted into something cruel, and she drew herself up to her full five-feet-and-four-inches. "So it is not only envy, but also jealousy. I daresay you're right to feel as much, Mr. Brandon. Absolutely right." [Oh, snap! - John]

I laughed so hard it hurt. Oh my god.

I now have this unshakable image of Paul, after Hannah flounces off, going, "Oh, snap! You just got served, sucker!"

And Tom being like, "Fuck that noise, man--haters gon' hate." As he straightens his cravat.

That is all.

Well, on that subject. Another day spent in the Library of Congress, and this time I got to an abolitionist newspaper. As expected, it was extremely self-righteous and irritating, in the exact same measure that the Southern Dem paper was batshit insane.

And I'm pretty sure the Know Nothing Party were the Tea Party of their day. Xenophobic, Anti-immigration, Catholic hating, slavery endorsing idiots. So... yep. That's about right.

We're not on the verge of Civil War, though. So I guess we're still doing better than they were back then--which, to be frank, I did not expect.

I still might go to the historical society next Tuesday. Just because it'd be awesome, and maybe I'd find a few neat little turns of phrase. But for the most part, my work for this week is done apart from printing the covers. This is partly because I hemmed and hawed about it. If I print them myself, I can't print them to the edge--there will be a bleed. And so, I thought I'd just do the images smaller and not even try to take up the whole page--what's the point? And then I thought, what if that looks even worse?

But fuck it, I like empty space. I'm making these fucking things one at a time, here. People won't mind. Anyhow, I think I'll go pick out some card stock and do a test print tomorrow. Wondering if it's smarter to print one and do color copies on it or print them all... thinking the former. Wondering if it'll look decent.

The cover is fucking stunning, though. Even more stunning than Hansen and Sam are adorable. Which is SAYING A LOT.

Today is Gianni Fiorenza's 102nd birthday.

Happy birthday, Head Person of Some Note. I hope you get whatever you want tonight. But then, you usually do.

And we're back from WV. We were there way, way less than 24 hours, but the Madrigal thing was great, the kids are awesome, Nick's script was even better than last year, etc. etc. And Paco is awesome.

As a side note, god, my mother is weird.

Hey, you know what ELSE makes me feel better?

This fucking adorable drawing of cartoon!Tom and Paul, that's what!

Shannon van Muijden did it. She has all these cartoon dandies on her profile and... well, you can see why I asked her if she was game.


Well, there's motivation to get the Resurrectionists page sorted on the website, huh? ADORABLENESS!

(See, doesn't Tommy look proud of himself? Yeeeeeah. And Paul? OMFG EXACTLY.)

I feel better already.

Dude, something was wrong with Balaji's stomach yesterday, but something's always wrong with his stomach. Now today something's wrong with mine and I realize too late that the fucker had a bug. Dammit!! Queasy and gross, but hey, if he's any indication, it's a 24 hour thing. Still, fuck.

So I took him to Union Station a few hours ago and put in Aldo's CD on the way back. It is seriously my favorite fucking CD ever:

1. The Boy With The Thorn In His Side - The Smiths
2. Endlessly - Muse
3. Never Let Me Down Again - Depeche Mode
4. Poison Heart - The Ramones
5. Hateful - The Clash
6. Boys Don't Cry - The Cure
7. The Hand That Feeds - NIN
8. Nobody Loved You - Manic Street Preachers
9. Paranoid Android - Radiohead
10. Angie - The Rolling Stones

So now I'm in an Aldo Mood: listening to NIN very loud and drinking Coke.

Icon Meme, since my brain is broken anyhow )

is it my imagination, or have we finally found something worth living for? [Jan. 29th, 2010|11:44 pm]

They brought me a martini glass, maybe 1/4 full of Amontillado sherry. The manager dumped a tiny spoonful of gold dust into it, then he poured Cava on top of it. It churned for a good half hour. It felt like champagne on my tongue, and the aftertaste was aged oakey sherry.

Holy christ, the Golden Boy from Jaleo is officially the Perfect Cocktail.

(From a writer standpoint, someone needs to invent it and name it after Ronan. Also: the server looked disturbingly like Elan. Note to self: Jaleo is entirely too Navaquin for comfort, while writing this shit.)

Other Things:

-Joe Don Baker is still made of awesome.
-I scored a bargain-priced book about witches (nonfiction stuff!) at the Natural History museum. What else burns? MORE WITCHES! (Yeah, we had to quote half the movie at that point.)
-Car was broken into, as part of what has apparently been a week-long string of car burglaries here in Yuppie Town. A neighbor heard someone else's alarm go off (ours didn't, wtf?) and called the cops, so they caught three dudes. Our window is smashed, and the Garmin gone. They left the CDs, which Nick feels is a commentary on my taste. He's probably right.
-Nick bought Sherry her first Art Book-- she fell in love with Jasper Johns (which I saw coming as soon as she said the words, "mixed media").
-Bargain book table at National Gallery yielded up a fucking fabulous catalogue of Van Dyck stuff. Obviously I do not have enough books on Dutch and Flemish baroque already, right? Right. (In my defense, none of them are specifically on Van Dyck-- which is just wrong.)
-Also got a little overview of Botticelli's most famous stuff since I was all high from having seen my favorite portrait of his upstairs*. Also, Malphus's vanity requires recognition after he did me a good turn this week. (Really nice reproduction of Madonna of the Magnificat in there, and that's him!)
-Gotta go get the car window fixed today. Fucking irritating!
-La Boheme today, and Megan's going to come with us too, since she's in town from San Francisco for the week for a conference, so yay! Now, let's hope they fix the car window before it's time to go...

For those of you who are semi-interested in what I might be writing and/or pretty things, but not reading my ridiculous fucking author blog ([info]kvtaylor... come on, it's easy to follow!), I would like to provide a link to the current project page for the Audio File, a novel of mine, right now. Go have a real quick look, because it has an awesome picture [info]thecory did of Izzy on it now. I did a blog post crowing about it too, but I put it on the project page because I can't bear to see it slide down and off the front page. Permanent home, ftw.

Thanks again, Cory, she's perfect. Definitely looks like trouble-- and even has her lucky yellow scarf!

Well after 24 hours (and then some) It looks like crazy ass bloodthirsty fucker is going to be called Silvi by one vote. This is probably good, since there were attachments in two different camps to the two other name choices. Bela didn't get the write in vote-- but that's cool, I'll use that name for someone awesome later. Because, man. It's Bela!

Although I do like Silvi. He has his own psychotic charm. Kind of.

Thanks, you guys totally own! I started scripting some stuff that involved him just today.

I guess this means my head is totally free to run away with this thing now. Oh dear.

<3 Thank you!

Okay, long story short. I have this fucked up character who has to have a Romanian-ish name. He's superhuman, half pseudo-vampire (He does bite, but he doesn't drink blood. Likes it a lot though. A lot. As in, probably bathes in it.) half Machiavellian brat (but he ignores that side more often than not. It takes way too much sanity to be so controlling.) Completely unstable and flat out cruel. Definitely not human.

So help me name him, because I want it to be something ridiculous, and therefore cannot pick. He's kind of secondary, too, so I don't really care.
