I feel that no matter what, you have to admit that Timothy Dalton was a pretty decent Bond.

Via Manly Man Training.

I don't really plan to have a son, but gups will benefit from this wisdom.

Also, I'm still not smart enough for Tumblr.

HOWEVER, THIS MORNING, I MADE THE BEST POT OF COFFEE KNOWN TO MANKIND.

Sarah Cloutier, a good and dear friend of mine, is an amazing artist, and whilst moseying through my bookmarks, I rediscovered it.

... There is a portrait of Greyspell in there, from a few years ago when I was just noodling with him, and his HAIR IS LOOSE AND I CAN SEE THE SKIN OF HIS THROAT, and it seriously weirds me out. XD

Go! See! Enjoy! Her colorwork just blows me away.

This is true. JAMES CAMERON.

Also, for the hell of it, my favorite "Oglof" (work-safe): IT'S HIS FACE.

Remind me, won't you, to post with the books I'm reading, or the stories I'm writing, or how adorable my guppy is, or why I find it satisfying to rp a horrible blood elf warlock.

THIS WEEK I AM NOT GOING TO POST FURTHER UPON MY EMPLOYMENT, THOUGH.

Made me happy and warm and wriggly to be a human!

Let's have a warm round of applause for:

Straight, the male blood elf paladin.
Warcock, the male undead warlock. ** Extra points awarded for being HIGH WARLORD Warcock.
Arolaide, the female human paladin. (I propsed her because ... I came up against her in the Gulch, and I just could not kill her. I mean, what do you even do.)
Treeformcow, the ... treeform... tauren druid.
Ihategnomes, the male undead rogue. WELL SAID, GOOD SIR.
Iwantmymtv, the troll hunter.
Raptordrood, the tauren druid. RAPTOR DROOD!!!!!!

They all lack the simple elegance of 'Greyspell', but we can't all be as awesome as me.

Except for Warcock, that guy's awesome.

One of the most common geek fallacies is "everyone I am friends with must also be friends with each other", which is perfect waffle when you think about it, because while I love Ann, Barbara, Carla, Dylan, and Erin, I know that Erin thinks Ann is a sack of doorknobs and Barbara would like to stab Erin in the eye with a corkscrew and then twist that motherfucker like she's got ants and weasels in her pants and shirtsleeve. Carla is okay with everyone but wishes Dylan would be less shrill about her hatred of Felicia over in the corner and no one else but me even knows about Felicia's blog.

The point is, some of y'all don't read [personal profile] nextian, which is okay by me, but please permit me to gank a link from her about a meme, a kingdom (two kingdoms) (in which there are such colors), and the mental image of Penelope Cruz with snake-fangs. RECONQUISTA

I would seriously watch the hell out of that show.

CALMAS!

This has made my whole day.

Also day-making: getting up at six to shred. I'm hungry, I'm sore and tight all over, and I feel excellent. If I can pull this off for twenty-seven more days, I will be so proud. (And then I start over with Level 2.)
meej: (awesome)
Made me and Steve Jobs laugh retardedly.

I have always loved the old fairy tales - the horrible things we tell to children that warn them against the dark, the grim tales told by the Brothers Grimm (who were, apparently, also super hot). Tanith Lee does this well (I am thinking principally of her Tales from the Flat Earth, although she also does actual vampyr novels and some hella dark fairy tale retellings, like I don't even know what to tell you about her Snow White story), and China MiƩville, for all his faults, totally kicked my ass with the moths of Perdido Street Station. (I can never decide if I like MiƩville or not; I know that I liked The Scar a lot more than PSS, but really what I like are tiny things buried in the middle of the muck and grit and grime and slime of his world. Also. The mosquito-women. Oh my GOD.) George RR Martin has some fantastic terrible fairy tales, although I want it noted that he, like Blizzard, totally ripped me off when I ripped off Tolkien.

I like the horror that patiently waits for you to notice it. Stephen King is excellent with this. So is Cordwainer Smith. The horror in pastels, the blood on the flower, the fairy tales with gorgeous prose that kisses you to sleep with poison fangs.

One of my very favorites is given to me by Tolkien.

Your mileage may vary for given values of Do I Like Tolkien's Prose Or Poesy. )
