On Remembering Lilith: Fiona Apple

So, I was really slow at getting into music (Plus, young...Fiona Apple is almost 10 years older than me) and this is the first time I've seen the video for Criminal.

I'm kind of uncomfortable with how hot that was.

On Where Have All the Good Book Covers Gone?

Those new Animorphs covers are a travesty! The originals were so so so good.

On Get This Look: Sports!

How can there be a person to first play professional football. Don't you need really need a whole bunch of them at once?

On Other People's Kids, Homes

@katerrific I pictured actual fish for a moment there. Made that story much more horrifying.

On Your Friday Book-y Post

I got to this post too early! Usually I pop open my library website and just start dumping in alllll the titles. But there aren't enough comments yet!

just read "The Pattern Scars" which may have been on my list because of a Hairpin recommendation, but oh man it was fabulous!
Also because I am behind the times I only recently got to Wolf Hall and Bring Up The Bodies. Truly amazing books.

On Your Friday Book-y Post

@cosmia I am not that excited for Maddaddam.
But. The Blind Assassin may be my favourite piece of fiction. So, that makes up for not being so excited about the new stuff. Love her immensely.

On 'Game of Thrones' Men, by Hotness

@Amphora holy shit that made me laugh so hard and so suddenly that it was mostly coughing. You are a genius.

On A Big Book-y Post

I have a library hold list problem. It keeps getting longer, not shorter. Too many things to read!

And on that note! I recently discovered that Edith Wharton is the shit. I love love love her.
Any good recommendations for lovely small books about people living their lives in tragic/romantic ways? Because I want more.

On Bi Identification, Moving Out, and the Rhinestone-Encrusted Manicure

@Urwelt True! Ardent desire is very much a thing that should be there. But we don't know what the LW wanted. She never mentions. Maybe this whole relationship was screwed up and unhealthy, maybe the D/s was fine and this particular threesome incident was the only thing that went terribly awry.

On Bi Identification, Moving Out, and the Rhinestone-Encrusted Manicure

@Danzig! yeah, that particular incident clearly went badly. And there's definitely responsibility to be laid.

I'm just projecting a little bit, because I read that letter and my knee jerk reaction was 'oh noes! too much D/s' and then I stopped to think about why I thought that and couldn't come up with much.
Then got pre-emptively defensive because in my relationship my partner explicitly has the ability to tell me to do things (and people!) that i'm not really into. Which tends to make people knee jerk 'oh noes!' But unlike the letter-writer I have been totally untraumatized by such events and happily anticipate more in the future.
