Yes, we have no , Saki, we have no, Saki, today. What we do have is beer...that is if certain deadbeats don't drain the keg before you get a chance. And if ya just gotta have some foreign devil booze, there's always, tequila.

Scott, your post brought back memories of the original 'Sim City' game and the monster that would destroy your city, Godzilla style, if you screwed up real bad. Ah, the good old days.

Any more requests, I mean, for something to drink?


Boilermaker (beer with a shot of whiskey), then. The Sim City monster was definitely inspired by Japanese "kaiju". I actually had an official Godzilla game for my Commodore 64 back in the eighties. You got to play various movie monsters and take down cities.

Got any sake around? Just had my mind thoroughly blown by the latest Japanese Godzilla movie (Shin Godzilla). If you like seeing cities leveled by skyscraper-sized reptiles, they don't get any better than this one.

The Andromeda Strain by Michael Crichton

I enjoyed Airframe so much, I smashed it in one night. I wanted to check out something else by him. I'm not quite as hooked this time around though. It's still too early to tell, but maybe his more recent stuff...

Wow, an oldie but a goodie. Film version (which I have not seen) has a pretty good rep, too.

Downloaded a couple collections of short stories on to my tablet last night, but I have trouble reading anything long these days. Seem to have developed some kind of mid-life ADHD or something. Find it hard to stay focussed on movies, too, esp. long ones.

Innocent, though I've often wanted to be naked outside. Bit of a closet nudist, I guess.

You have had erotic/wet dreams about real life friends or co-workers.

Saw "Alien: Covenant" last night. I liked it - pretty scary but intelligent too.

It's getting better reviews than Prometheus but that's a rather low bar. The Globe & Mail only gave it two stars but the reviewer raved about Fassbender's performance.

Good afternoon, barflies and beauties. You know which you are. Pull me a draft, Rump.

Fun day planned for tomorrow. Upgrading a web forum (a rather smaller and less horny one) to a new version of the software we use. Unlike Lush, it's all out-of-box software so no Gav is required, just someone like me who can handle more basic stuff. So, since that forum will be down while the upgrade runs, I'll probably dip in here for some company.

Never hard of Lahm but I don't follow football all that religiously, just keep an eye on the big tournaments like the WC and Euro.

Hockey, OTOH, while I'm not a big fan, I follow, else they make me turn in my Canadian card. Canada beat the Russians in the semis at the world championships, putting us in position to win our third straight gold. Haven't heard whether the Finns or Swedes prevailed in other semi so not sure yet who we are playing.

Audios are a little odd to do. I have done a couple. I did one of a poem I wrote called Filthy and it is just that, filthy. I still can't believe I wrote it much less added an audio.

I'll take a Hannah, please. I am going to try to catch up on some reading and get to bed at a decent hour. I need to be up early. Apparently fish get up early or so I have been told. I think it's a conspiracy theory of some sort.

Here's the link if anyone wants to hear me say a lot of really filthy things. I think I'll slink out now and might not be back after posting the link. Embarassed

I'm not sure if it's a coincidence or not but it is my most viewed poem at around 22K views.

Maybe I should challenge myself one day and do an ultra dirty audio story?

I won't be the one to stop you, that's for sure. (Just ignore the panting noises. That's my ... um ... dog.Embarassed )

I will probably be doing more reading this weekend. I don't really read enough on Lush. Of course, I do have two stories (one will be published as a two-parter though due to length) in the pipe as well that I could be writing so it's a bit of a tough call. Read ... write ... read ... write. Usually, I come down on the side of write if I'm up to it.

Ever had a moment where you realized that you really are a "writer"? I was just giving advice in a new thread on how to describe cyber in a story and ended with "my gut feeling as a writer". And when I re-read it, I went, "Whoa. I am a writer, now, aren't I?"

Whiskey on the rocks, Rump. Canadian rye if you've got it, else Scotch will do.

Topic Describing Cyber Sex
Posted 19 May 2017 09:09

hello authors,
any tips on writing realistic descriptions of online encounters? My problem is with the dialogue. In the cold light of morning the chat log is about as erotic as a laundry list (error, some laundry lists are quite good cf Woody Allen).
I feel the reader should be seduced in the same way I was by my cyber partner's chat but oh how to do it?
Many thanks

Don't make it realistic cyber-sex or just adapt the chat you're basing it on. Take the basic fantasy you two were spinning and rewrite it as good dialogue (yes, do format it sa proper dialogue) and make it as erotic as it needs to be, regardless of how the chat log actually reads. If there's some awkward bits, don't use them. Write something better. And be sure to describe your actions as you engage in the chat. That's going to add a lot of heat to the bare exchange of words.

Never written something like this myself, though, so this is just my gut feeling as a writer.

Aye. View to Kill and You Only Live Twice there the Bond themes for the Connery suave character.

You surely meant "Goldfinger", not "View to a Kill". "View to a Kill" was a Moore film and was one of the better themes of that Bond era in spite of being done by Duran Duran.

And a shit time to be losing all the great singers. Life's a damned dirty bitch you try and survive the best way you can. And more often than not, it robs you early.

Great artists dying young is one of those historical themes that never seems to die. You see it going back to Chopin (one of the greatest pianists of his day) and Mozart (ditto). Not sure if there's any statistical justification for thinking so, but it seems to be a penchant for burning bright and flaming out early.

Whatsoever I've feared has come to life
Whatsoever I've fought off became my life
Just when everyday seemed to greet me with a smile
Sunspots have faded and now I'm doing time
Cause I fell on black days

Seattle is covered in black clouds today
and crows fall like flower petals from the sky
wings like silent songs and prayers
disappearing into the hole that's opened up in our hearts

for those who don't get why we mourn the deaths of artists, understand that they have been a respite from the storm, a haven when all around us goes dark and fear eats at our souls. They've been family, friends, role models, cheerleaders, and teachers. They have been there when those who should have been have failed us. They helped us through bad times and helped show us how to survive when things are hard. Sometimes they help us get out of bed. Sometimes they keep us on our feet when we want to give up. Sometimes they save our lives. Artists have inspired us in endless ways during our lives. Shown us the beauty, the ugly, comforted us through fear and through anger. We've made memories with them, so when they die, a part of us dies.

RIP Chris. Love to your family, friends, and fans. You will be greatly missed.

Big Hugs Eloquent as ever, Rachel. Nicely said.

And if anyone ever tells you that something was too "vanilla," I can lay the etymology of that one on you as well. "Vanilla" and "vagina" are etymologically the same word.

Had to go look that one up. Interesting. I had not realized that the Spanish word that became the English "vanilla" came from the diminutive of "vagina". I like vanilla and I like ... yeah, those, too. Embarassed

His Bond track was better than any other.

For all the love Adele's "Skyfall" got, I think that "You Know My Name" is really the definitive Bond theme for the Craig era. Like Craig's Bond, it packs a darkness and drama that is unlike most of its predecessors.

The first paragraph of that book is one of my fave first paragraphs of all time. I love how she says the house is "not sane" instead of insane.

The first movie version of the book is excellent. The second one, despite starring Catherine Zeta Jones, is unwatchably bad.

I'm sick with a bad cold. Hope there is some NyQuil left behind the bar.

I love the 1963 version. Seen it a couple times. Skipped the remake completely. As soon as I heard Jan de Bont was directing, I was out. Knew in my gut he was the wrong person.

And Green Man, I like Tiptree, too. Her own life story is almost as interesting as some of her fiction, too.

Mid-afternoon. Time for some vino, me thinks. A glass of red, please, Rump.

I wasn't a big fan of the grunge scene when it started, but I soon realized just how much talent was packed into that scene. Chris Cornell was arguably the best vocalist to come out of it and one of the best of his generation period. Sad to see him go so young (just turned 52 myself so the age make hit all the harder).

I don't like paint thinner.

You're a classicist too? kai su, teknon?

I am but I have not kept up my languages. Never did much Greek anyhow. I was more of a Latinist. Latin literature and Roman history were kind of my focus and Horace and Virgil remain two of my favorite writers of any era. Thought about grad school but after 13 years in public school and 4 of undergrad, I took the quick way out and did a one year library degree post-baccalaureate so I could get a job and take a break from school. Still haven't gone back and probably won't until I retire now.

I have to agree with you about Shirley Jackson, I had the same reaction to that story as you did.

Funnily enough, I read The Lottery well after becoming a fan of Jackson. It was Haunting of Hill House that hooked me. It is one of the rare novels that I will take down and re-read from time to time. Brilliant piece of writing even if you're not a fan of ghost stories as I am.

Topic Guys would you pay an escort over $250 - $300 to date?
Posted 18 May 2017 05:25

You seriously don't want to go any lower than 300 dollars for a hooker. Any lower and she'll probably look like a cracked out bridge troll.....

1,000 dollar hookers is what you should strive for really.

I'm not really sure what market you are in, but see my comments upthread. $300/hr. gets you a fairly good one around here. It's the $150 and under that you have to watch out for. And I've never heard of anyone charging $1000 around here. That's probably something you'd only see in places like NY and Hollywood where there's people with money to burn. I don't think even the Toronto scene gets that high.

Eleanor Roosevelt

Nice list, actually. I almost went with Cleopatra myself but Hypatia has been a bit of a hero(ine) of mine since I first heard about her in Carl Sagan's original Cosmos. Another one that comes to mind is the renowned Aspasia, mistress of Greek orator and demagogue Pericles. She was highly educated and also reputed (though apparently it is somewhat disputed) to have been a "hetaera", who were the high class courtesans of ancient Athens and were often highly educated.

Florence Nightingale Syndrome really isn't a thing. Maybe talk to an actual nurse before going there.

Much of erotica is in that category, though. Teacher-student happens far more in erotica than in real life (and that is very much a good thing), too, but that's doesn't stop us from writing it.

Though I will say that health care professional with patient is not one I'm likely to do. Hospitals and sickness and such creep me out too much to be sexy. I have one that I have flirted with about a husband getting in on with the home care nurse looking after his ailing wife but I have let it lie. I manage IT for a home care company and know a lot of health care workers in that field so just doesn't feel right.

Topic Undressing...
Posted 17 May 2017 10:00

Kind of answered this your other thread on foreplay. I love undressing my partner, making sure lots of touching of skin and body parts happens as I do. Watching a partner undress is pretty nice, too, but I'd say that undressing a partner myself, unveiling their nakedness at my own pace, is a bigger turn-on when push comes to shove. As for myself, whatever turns my partner on, but having them remove my clothing is very exciting.
