30 Harshest Author-on-Author insults in History. Gertrude Stein on Ezra Pound might be my favorite: A village explainer. Excellent if you were a village, but if you were not, not. Nabakov apparently hated everyone, lol.

Ancient Graffiti from Pompeii. I want to use some of these as fic prompts. Theophilus, don’t perform oral sex on girls against the city wall like a dog.

Sometimes it's easy to forget, but Beyonce is actually pretty awesome.

Have you checked out Do Ask, Do Tell, a consent comment fic meme, yet? YOU SHOULD.

Americans, did you know Tiger and Bunny is available to watch FREE on Hulu? BECAUSE IT IS.

Did you know the Gestapo's Most Wanted in France was a woman? Read all about 'the White Mouse' and her TOTAL BADASSERY.

Takashi Miike may be making a Phoenix Wright movie. YES. REALLY. grumble grumble i bet capcom still won't put the games back in print grumble

If anyone wants a DW invite code, let me know, I just got a bunch.

FAQ for college students regarding the Rapture. (via [personal profile] ithiliana

101 asexy sex scenes, by [personal profile] melannen. Some of these have a remarkable amount of attention, I'm just sayin'. Here are just a few suggestions:

[Sherlock] is ace, and doesn't actually want to have sex with [Lestrade]. This is not denial. So would the erotic dreams please stop?

[Sanzo] and [Gojyo] play sex chicken.

[Schuldig] has mind-reading powers, but being able to feel other people have sex and feel attraction doesn't make it work on a personal level.

Isn't this a fun game?

Enjoy this 1960s bachelor pad Weiss HQ.

Now I need to fix all the things 'dog found in my Buffy story. Fuuuuuck.

Scenes from a weird abandoned amusement park. There's a plot bunny here, someone should find it.

Fuck yeah, Raja, devoted to my favorite queen from this season's RuPaul's Drag Race.

Femininity is just something that comes from within. It doesn’t necessarily have to present itself in the physical or tangible sort of way, but I think it’s something that you feel and is innate within you. I really celebrate femininity in its provocative sense.

So yeah. Also, he's gorgeous as Raja and as Sutan Amrull. (And a Gemini!!)

I also present the final .gif wall for your enjoyment. SPOILERS if you follow those links.

I have kept myself from getting annoyed with the Royal Wedding madness with Kate Middleton for the Win.

Via [personal profile] telophase, A quick call for submissions for a non-genre fiction anthology aimed at LGBTQ teens. Deadline's end of February.

UK voters: There's some dicey stuff going on around the disability allowance.

Anyone want BPAL?

A supermarket chain in Arkansas covered the, er, cover of US Weekly with Elton John's new baby. On the upside, a ton of kids probably snuck a peek just to see what the fuss was about.

Lily Tomlin's judging Drag Race next week! Squeeeeeeee.

ETA: Fucking unicorns! My country. LOLOL.

This letter is fantastic. FANTASTIC.

Did you catch the fiction writing tips from The Guardian that went up in February? Read it now!

Some Saiyuki fic writer smarter than me should do something with this article on the possible medicinal effects of salvia. Kappa! Mu!

I've gotten all kinds of holiday cards, thanks to all who've sent them! And thank you, [profile] alice_and_lain. ♥!

And happy New Year, y'all! 2010 went out okay for me. I hope 2011 is great for everyone!

Will be relevant to quite a few interests here, I think.

I want to build an online marketplace for gender-variant clothing solutions.

Not a store where I sell to you, but a service like Etsy and Ebay where we sell to each other, in a focused, supportive community. And while we’re at it, we also trade all sorts of tips and inspirations on how best to look the way we want, gender-be-damned.

You know what I’m talking about. Tuxes for hips and breasts. Size 16 extra-wide high heels. Custom alterations, custom orders, custom tailoring. Hot unisex indie designer labels. Hand-made t-shirts. That awesome skirt from your closet that doesn’t fit you anymore. A good chest binder. That amazing jacket you found at a thrift store for $5 that you want to resell. And while we’re at it, let’s bring in styles from every subculture that celebrates androgyny, which is pretty much all of them.

Linked from a friend, but under lock so I won't credit here.

A nice rundown of the Avatar: TLA movie and its horrible suckitude. There is color coding.

Real yakuza review Yakuza 3.

If you're not reading the stories at [community profile] 7thnight_smut, you really should be-- at least if you like Saiyuki. All the stories are locked, but membership is open. I've been working my way through them for days. (I confess my current favorite is the one where Goku's a chef and Sanzo's the world's bitchiest restaurant reviewer, although the space AU with the OT4 is fighting for top place.)

You may have already heard about the soon-to-be infamous SPN fic, which set Jared and Jensen as a doctor and photographer in post-earthquake Haiti, but here's a nice roundup. On first glance, I thought this was well-intentioned fic gone wrong; the details are rather more horrible.

In better news, the Venture Brothers team-- along with some other cartoon artists-- are auctioning off a boatload of stuff to benefit the Baton Rouge Area Foundation and oil spill recovery. LOOK BROCK SAMSON FIGHTING PIRATES OMG.

I think I finally figured out my [community profile] dark_agenda switcheroo, and how to make a reasonably long story that can actually get done by July 2-- maybe. Whee!

EDIT to fix borked HTML.

The Dark Agenda fuck you Airbender movie Racebending Revenge Ficathon.

Re-write one or more white characters in the fandom(s) of your choice as chromatic/non-white/PoC, in a story of at least 500 words, with some acknowledgment of how the racial difference would make a difference to the story being told.


Speaking of which, [personal profile] ranalore recast Leverage here, and there is Dante Basco. Yes.

Also, Minekura has apparently decided the fourth wall is for wusses. I ♥ her.
lady_ganesh: Ishida Uryuu, stitch master (i can outstitch all you bitches (Bleach))
Ganked from all over the place. I think at least one of these came from FWD/Forward but I've forgotten the rest.

Pop Culture

Larry Hart got the idea to decorate his mansion with spackle squeezed out of cake-frosting tubes from a book on Versailles...

The American aesthetic of bling.

Marlee Matlin had an idea for a reality show that she hoped would bring some insight into the lives and struggles of deaf people and how they cope. But while reality TV has brought us wife swappers, party girls, aging rock stars and dieting divas, apparently no one was ready for something that real.

Marlee Matlin launches her own reality series on YouTube.

While winning the role may have been serendipitous for R.J., what he is making out of the opportunity is quite deliberate. It has allowed him to discover himself -- not only as an actor but also as an activist for the rights of people with disabilities in the entertainment industry.

A profile of R.J. Mitte.

This Is Possibly Kind of About Fandom

a lot of people look at the critical impulse, and the work that it sometimes produces, as some kind of attempt to kill their buzz

Snobbery, projection, resentment.

If you can't unsay something you just realized is horribly wrong, the next best thing is to claim you never said it.

World's Saddest Internet Argument Techniques, 2010 edition. I think I've gotten every fucking one of these.


You're welcome.

This is a test. This is only a test. The lovely [personal profile] sophie gave me a paid account (she did the random giving thing, how awesome is that?), and I'm thinking of re-upping once my free two months are over-- but I'm having trouble getting the crossposting to work. So...this is a test.

Here, have an interesting article from Mother Jones about a former Republican operative working for gay marriage. And another one about where human hair extensions come from.

Also, Gerber? I am not entirely sure X/1999 is where you want to be advertising on Hulu. Just FYI.

1. Wow, [profile] karose, that Speed Racer movie sure was slashy. I think I'm gonna watch it again to see Rain bite his lip. Also, if there is An Association to Give Christina Ricci A Sandwich, I would like to join it.

2. Nifty article with [personal profile] sartorias, aka Sherwood Smith, here.

3. In case you haven't already seen this, the Thousand-Hand Guan Yin performed by a troupe of Deaf Chinese dancers.

4. [personal profile] lindentreeisle is correct. The GI Joe movie looks stupid. If you don't believe me, I have one word: Supersuits. Yeah, I don't get it either.

5. Gay marriage is looking good in Maine! US NEW ENGLANDERS WILL TAKE OVER THE WORLD, YO.

6. Am working on several fics and two short stories at once. Seems to be the only way I make progress on any of them. Am well aware this proves I am insane.
