Topic Alive or dead, who is your favorite guitarist?
Posted 05 Feb 2015 07:01

Robbie Robertson (especially for his work on "Blonde on Blonde") and all of his great songs with The Band. Of course he's Canadian, but more than this he overcame a lot in his early life. Robbie brings influences of Ronnie Hawkins, Van the man Van Morrison, Bob Dylan and so many other "greats" into his creativity. He was not only a great guitarist, but also a great song writer and producer.

Topic Of Flighty Muses, Stampeding Hippopotami And Going Creatively Crazy
Posted 17 Jan 2015 05:54

"The mentality of ordinary human slaves is terrible--they have lost the world--and we had surrendered, not body alone, but soul to the overmastering greed of victory. By our own act we were drained of morality, of volition, of responsibility, like dead leaves in the wind."

Like dead leaves in the wind. Now that is one of my favourite lines from the beginning. A true master of language.

As an avid FAN of this amazing book I would totally agree:

"Some of the evil of my tale may have been inherent in our circumstances. For years we lived anyhow with one another in the naked desert, under the indifferent heaven. By day the hot sun fermented us; and we were dizzied by the beating wind. At night we were stained by dew, and shamed into pettiness by the innumerable silences of stars. We were a self-centred army without parade or gesture, devoted to freedom, the second of man's creeds, a purpose so ravenous that it devoured all our strength, a hope so transcendent that our earlier ambitions faded in its glare."

Chrissie,

Well I'm long over my "Hemingway phase" and attending a bull fight sort of took the shine of some of his musings. Well I understand English is not your native tongue so just making a tiny unimportant correction on usage haha.

OMG you are a CULTURED lass? How many on members on Lush have any idea what the "Subscriber's Edition" of Seven Pillars is? I think maybe YOU + ME haha. The "Proof Printing" of 8 copies (six exist) fetches over US$1 million now for sure. The subscriber's edition was about 200 copies. I do watch out for these, but not easy to find. They will certainly fetch well over US$100K or $200K in the current inflated currency world. Maybe more. I'd love one. The book agents in Mayfair are your best bet or Christie's? My copy is a first edition of the 1926 Oxford abridged text.

I loved you, so I drew these tides of
Men into my hands
And wrote my will across the
Sky and stars
To earn you freedom, the seven
Pillared worthy house,
That your eyes might be
Shining for me
When I came

Chrissie I adore your ramblings. I think I will try some of this for sure.

"Now please excuse me, as I’ve got a story to write about a punk girl who owns Louboutin heels and a Hemingway first print. I’m still not completely ruling out hippopotami."

Well I love Louboutin heels and I've read everything Hemingway ever wrote (twice).......but it should correctly read "a Hemingway FIRST EDITION"?? Not a first print?

My pride and joy is a first edition of "The Seven Pillars of Wisdom". I would love to have a set of David Roberts' "The Holy Land" but a bit out of my reach and also deserves to be in a museum where it can be properly cared for. I do have the original lithographs including "The Approach of the Simoon". I put that print into one of my stories.

Topic When I was a kid
Posted 16 Jan 2015 22:28

Lived in Germany in two different cities until I was three and my mom said I first spoke German.

Then we moved to Ghana in both Kumasi and Accra. I collected scorpions and bugs. I wanted to own a zoo as a kid. We had a Tarantula in the house one time and a 6ft+ black cobra in the back yard one time (the gardener killed it). We had white Egrets on the lawn and a Poinsettia tree in the back yard? I have no idea how those trees got to Ghana since I now realise they come from Mexico?

We lived in 22 houses in the first 25 years of my life. Yes we moved around. Luckily I've seen a lot of the world.

Topic What Are The Most Memorable Movie Scenes That Have Stayed With You Always?
Posted 23 Nov 2014 03:21

Well I'll offer up two.

1. Final scene of "Manon de Source" when he finds out Jean was his son. Fucking gut-wrenching. For me "Jean de Florette" and "Manon de Source" are a single movie and pretty much deal with every human emotion.

2. "I know it was you Fredo."

Topic How do I get people to actually vote and/or comment on my stories??
Posted 22 Nov 2014 06:32

OMG that explains it.....the SITE is failing not me. The lack of comments and votes? It's the site's fault. Damn I should have realised that. And I thought it was my fault. Oh and I haven't won a competition because it's the site's fault. I had always erroneously blamed it on SITTING for writing better fucking stories? Grrrr shows you how off-base you can be. Sorry SITTINGEmbarassed Embarassed . Hey I have a solution? I'll form my own site. I can vote on all my own stories as many times as I want and I can let myself WIN all the writing competitions. Wow that was easy. Hey well at least I'm part of the "pre-2014 crowd" on a failing site. Geez time for a drink. I feel depressed. Will all my stories disappear when the one-year is up?

Posted 03 Nov 2014 02:48

Well I've done two HISTORICAL settings so far and I find it a very nice challenge as a writer. One was a western and one series is a BDSM study set in Napoleonic France. So out of self-interest I will go with HISTORICAL.

Topic *WHICH ONE OUT OF FLEETWOOD MAC WOULD YOU BE?*
Posted 21 Sep 2014 23:59

Okay.....next thought.....FAVOURITE Fleetwood Mac lyrics? Anybody want to quote their favourite lines? I'll start off with the little known "BLUES" number "Love That Burns". It's track 16 on the Essential album written by Peter Green in the period prior to the Stevie Nicks/Lindsey Buckingham era the band is famous for. Peter Green was the frontman who formed the band with Mick Fleetwood and John McVie (they all met via John Mayall's band). So this is vintage Fleetwood Mac. C'mon quote me your favourite lines from the '75 album or "Rumors".....?

And don't you use me as your fool
Baby, 'cause my heart can't stand another lie
Woman never use me, don't use me as your fool
Baby, 'cause my heart can't stand another lie
And if you can't love me tomorrow
Please leave me now in my room to cry
