Quite possibly the most depressing and on point ERB in history.

Excuse me, I need to find some conveniently branded chewable aspirin and attempt to OD now.

That's a damned shame. It isn't like that door hasn't been opened already, even at Marvel, with Wolverine's son, Daken. But I guess he gets the 'bad guy' pass.

You know, for all I joked about it last night, Spider's Bite wasn't bad.

It was deliciously old school noir, with a protagonist who was genderflipped.

But if you like the standard noir cliches, right down to the dead partner and the hooker with a heart of gold, the one honest cop and the dangerous blonde, this book had them. Just from a slightly off-kilter, urban fantasy angle.

I'm pretty sure that proving to yourself that you aren't a literary snob because you just can't read a Star Trek novel, much less one where the protagonist is an alien with a Scottish name, by starting to read a book that is apparently about a BBQ chef by day, paranormal assassin by night is some kind of masochism.

No, no. She is ... The Spider!

You have to add your own musical sting there.

The audio book thing while playing FF XIV worked out so well that I've decided to make a deal with myself. Which is to say, as nice as the soundtrack for the game can be, I will spend the time I'm gathering and crafting in the game (since those activities don't require sound, really) also listening to stuff I've been meaning to read. 

First up: The Black Count by Tom Reiss. One of the best biographies to come out in the last few years, I've heard. And the story of Alex Dumas, upon whom his son, Alexandre, based some of his most interesting and enduring stories and characters.

After that: Isabella: The Warrior Queen by Kirstin Downey. I've also heard really good things about this. And I have to admit, Isabella is largely overshadowed by her flamboyant husband in my limited historical knowledge. Apparently, that's not the real story. :D

I can see why this book won a Pulitzer.

The history of French and French Colonial racial politics is fascinating. I'm a few hours in and we haven't even started on the life of the titular Count.

We have, however, discussed coffee and sugar crops in colonial Haiti, the brief, amazing flower of a multi-ethnic society in Jeremie that was the rival of any city other than Paris herself.

Also, the blending of commedia dell'arte and voudoun!

Oh, and how to crack a safe and the proper method of bribing a French mayor.

I find myself inexplicably nostalgic for the Buffy universe today.

I wonder if it's fair to say that show changed the landscape of genre TV (and urban fantasy in general) or if that's just my interior fanboy speaking.

Well yes, but that was after the network switch.  I'm thinking of the season before when the most they could have those two do was dance and float in the air.  Rarely held hands and didn't kiss.

Just as a note, I don't care who gets my stuff after I die, but you should be aware that I licked everything. Everything.

Triumph: The roomie brings me a spinach salad!

Tragedy: We have no salad dressing in the house.

Tragedy: Said roomie asked for a pint of fresh lemon juice from the grocery and received a quart.

Triumph: The Internet gives me a lemon vinaigrette salad dressing recipe.

I'll call this one a win. :D

+Alexandre ToutCourt Hi, and thanks for the kind words. Alas, I don't speak French, but Google Translate assures me you're a great guy. ;)

In any case, happy weekend and friendship to you, as well.

You see this?

This is the kind of obsessive madness that makes me love MMO players sometimes.

Imaginary fishing, broken down by the imaginary bait used, the imaginary weather and the imaginary time of day you're pretending to fish.

So much love. I'm not a hugger and I wouldn't anyway, because our lines would get tangled (if you know what I mean), but the people behind 'Cat Became Hungry' deserve a hug for this work of pointless, obsessive, really well-designed brilliance and madness.

It took me literally 30 years or so to get over my fear of sissies. First of being one and later of being seen with them. At the same time as I adored and worshiped them on screen.

This is a great (and much more healthy) approach to the whole 'sissy' gay man archetype.
