Okay. The Ultimates 1 &2. Great. Starts you off on uneven footing, and you get less sure of your assumptions and second guess yourself even more from there. From the word 'go' the entire world is ever so slightly off kilter, and the story is relentless enough not to give you time to reorient and get your bearings. Definitely recommending to sit and read it in one go. It's four TPBs, not really that long, but it's got quite a bang for your buck. Cameos from everybody. And truly *epic* covers for the entire run. It's really quite astounding.

Also, am rewatching Torchwood. To everybody who thinks the Limeys are nothing but staid, stuffy and repressed: TORCHWOOD. And no, John Barrowman (Cpt. Jack Harkness) is not actually an American, he just plays one on telly. This show is breathtaking. The scope is epic, the music is good, the stories can be a bit over the top with the gore (eg 'Countrycide' and 'Meat'), but the sex is *fantastic*. I seriously love Jack/Ianto, and i wish Gwen would quit thinking that the universe revolves around her. I miss Owen and Tosh, even as I sit here and watch them; it hurts more, knowing what's coming up. There's nothing quite like seeing it for the first time, all unknowing what lies ahead. Seeing it the second time, (or third, or fourth,) I feel like I know these people, I empathise with them. And knowing what is in their future, it hurts that i can't give them more time or see them solve their problems or have a "happy ever after" even for just a little while.

It's still kind of irritating that they strap all kinds of useless and extraneous LEDs to absolutely *everything*, though. I mean, come on. A *toolbox*?
Really?

P.S.- 'Rum' rhymes with 'yum'. Remember that.

California burns
Clark
1sands_of_time1
It's like the whole world is on fire right now. The sky is smoky, the sun and the light are always a dirty orange, and the last two days have been an extended asthma attack. I heard on the radio (NPR) that this could go on for 30 days. Thirty days of gasping, feeling nauseous, floaters in front of my eyes, itching and burning and insomnia. Dear God, why didn't we do more controlled burns earlier so there wouldn't be so much damn fuel lying around.

Fire:



From calfire.blogspot.com

"This natural-color image from the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Aqua satellite on Monday, June 23

Red outlines shows the places where the sensor detected actively burning fires.

The Northern region of California has experienced record low levels of rainfall this spring, leaving dry vegetation throughout the State ready to burn when approximately 6,500 lightning strikes hit the Northern area of the State in less than a 24 hour period which ignited more than 800 Wildland fires. A rare example of 'dry lightning' that brought little or no rain but plenty of fire to the state's parched forest and grasslands.'

The dry vegetation, rough terrain, windy weather, limited access, and firefighting resources slow to arrive has made firefighting efforts very difficult and dangerous.

5. Don't you dare dig for that "cool" or "intellectual" book in your closet! I know you were thinking about it! Just pick up whatever is closest.

You Should Be a Science Fiction Writer

Your ideas are very strange, and people often wonder what planet you're from.
And while you may have some problems being "normal," you'll have no problems writing sci-fi.
Whether it's epic films, important novels, or vivid comics...
Your own little universe could leave an important mark on the world!


I thought it would be long and complex and interesting, but no. I was foolied! damn. back on to find the origin of "bitch cakes"...

christ on a pogo stick, why wasn't this on the news, or something? 
******************** 

Dead Men’s Pearls 
Filed under: brainjuice — warrenellis @ 1:20 pm 

     Time was that a world-changing news datum would come every ten years or so, if that. The world was slow. Around the time of the Industrial Revolution, that ramped up to a dizzying rate of one a year. Towards the end of the Twentieth Century, the rate was up to one a week, quickly reaching one a day in the early 21st. 
     Today, the rate is one every fifteen minutes. And here’s what’s at the top of the hour: turns out girls from San Francisco can make dead men come after all. Either that or there’s a necronautical anomaly restricted to the Bay Area, but I like my version better. 
     As news-rich as we are now, there’s still no way to determine exactly how this began. I mean, how do you discover that you can give dead men erections? And, frankly, what kind of freak swallows, in that situation? 
     Nonetheless, word got around that, in NoCal at least, you can get dead men off. And there was a reason that the news spread. It turned out that corpse-loads, black and red and with the consistency of passion-fruit pulp, conferred some kind of near-psychedelic experience. The legs of perception spread wide and led you into the world of the dead. Which appeared to be a men’s toilet in an industrial club sometime after 1am on a Saturday. 
     It wasn’t long before communion-girls (and a smattering of men) began spitting instead of swallowing. Dribbling blackened cadaver-jizz into little plastic vials. And selling it. Dead Men’s Pearls, it’s called. Fifty bucks a pop, which is putting an awful lot of girls through media studies courses at UC Berkeley. 
     And introducing a lot of guys to the taste of semen. Which is doing wonders for the social fabric of the Bay Area, in a “Honey, do I really taste like that?” “Honey, this is why I keep mints by the bed” kind of way. 
     We have made contact with the world of the dead. And it’s an endless corridor of toilet cubicles full of people throwing up with Einsturzende Neubauten playing tinnily in the background. Which, perhaps, is as it should be. 
     And since it’s taken fifteen minutes for me to explain all this to you, we’re now due the next world-changing new discovery. Can’t wait. (Written May 2004, very quickly, to try and get it the fuck out of my head.)
