Whiskey. Must ... have ... whiskey.

Or something inspiring. I'm dancing back and forth between two possible comp entries and hate both. And I've got a new story that's finished to the point where I just need to edit the hell out of it but that I've put aside to try to enter the comp. So do I finish it and maybe miss out on the comp? Or put it on ice for a couple weeks and focus on finding a comp idea that I can work with. Decisions, decisions.

Topic The True Face of Batman
Posted 02 Dec 2016 08:05

I disagree however that the Bruce Wayne from Nolan's trilogy (ie. Christian Bale) doesn't depict this aspect adequately. In my opinion, that's the version of Bruce Wayne who had the most emphasis on it. There are plenty of instances where you can see Christian Bale being insolent, driving ostentatious sports cars and dating models. This particular scene has it all:

Of all the Batmen so far, including Affleck who I haven't seen in action, just in clips, Bale seemed to me to be the one most likely to be an actual superhero. Yes, he played the role of Bruce Wayne, millionaire philanthropist playboy but he didn't seem as believable in it to me as West or Keaton (or even Kilmer, not that Kilmer was especially believable in any aspect of the role IMHO). Can't speak to Clooney, though he actually strikes me as fitting the part of Bruce much better than that of Bats. I boycotted Batman & Robin after seeing the horror that was Batman Forever.

He's too pretty to be Batman. Unless he toughens up, Underdog will pee on his leg..

I think that's kind of the point of Bruce Wayne, though. He's not supposed to come across as the Batman type when he's out of costume (something that, incidentally, I think worked against Bale and in favour of guys like West and Keaton). His reputation is that of a womanizing rich brat. That way, no one suspects him when the guy in black tights shows up and kicks ass.

Tough one. I love'em both. Really, I'd rather see them team up and kick the shit out of Ghidorah or something. But, if push comes to shove, I'd give the big G a slight edge (though Kong more or less won in the 1962 film).

Topic christmas
Posted 27 Nov 2016 14:14

There were festivals celebrated around the Solstice and in the late Fall long before there was a Christmas. Christmas even nicked bits from some of them. Further, Christmas has become secularized enough that one can enjoy the celebration without ever mentioning Jesus. The decorations, presents, family dinners, and so on have little to do with Jesus and a lot to do with just getting together and celebrating being together.

For me, there is still spiritual meaning to the season even if I stopped calling myself a "Christian" a long time ago (what I am is complicated and in flux). I will even go to Christian services on Christmas Eve without the slightest intent of being ironic. The story of hope for "Peace on Earth, Goodwill among men" born in simple surroundings is a resonant one and fits nicely with other festivals celebrating the coming of light into the darkness of the winter.

Mine has always been quite modest. Dresses nicely when we're out but never especially sexy. Even her swimsuits are as modest as they come these days. I kind of like it as long as it comes off around me (which it does). Makes her my secret or something like that.

Americans may know him from Shark Tank but he's actually a Canuck and was on our version of Dragon's Den for most of its run (quit a couple seasons ago). He hasn't actually thrown his hat in the ring yet, but is (for about the third time) musing about running for the leadership of our Conservative Party.

Topic if you could change to the opposite sex for a day, what would you do?
Posted 26 Nov 2016 13:06

Dress up fancy and hit the stores I don't normally like going in (ladies fashion places, lingerie stores). Women really do have more clothing options than men and more fun shopping for them.

Then I'd get my sexy on and find a guy so I can see what being on the receiving end feels like.

Since it's only for a day, I'd be unlikely to have a period or get pregnant but if I could be one for a year or something, then experience those.

Posted 26 Nov 2016 06:46

Curious, does anyone else start writing a great story (not so much the sex, but the story) and then go "Shit, I've been here before." Not necessarily the specific but the general thrust of the situation. I have a story mostly finished and I haven't published it because I've realized it hits some of the same buttons as " April's Secret " - a passionate night followed by a revelation about the partner followed by a "I love you anyway" moment.

Find a plugin for your forum software that checks against stopforumspam. For small sites, it's a godsend that will weed out the bulk of spammer sign-ups.

My site is a little hole in the wall that's mostly me talking to myself, but the plugin has blocked over 4700 registrations this year — more than double last year. Which was more than double the year before. That's not even counting the registrations blocked by another plugin, those who never validate their email, those I catch because I have the time to check out every sign-up that makes it through, etc.

We use Xenforo which has StopForumSpam built-in. I'm talking about what gets past StopForumSpam, it takes care of the vast majority of them. We tightened things up this summer but a few still slip past.

Topic Do people believe in Destiny?
Posted 24 Nov 2016 05:44

As an external force directing our lives to a particular goal(s)? Not really. We are certainly affected by external forces in many ways (to the point where free will becomes somewhat questionable) but those forces don't have a particular, precise destination.

That said, my own life story has one example of why people believe in it. My wife and I were born on opposite sides of the planet, me in a relatively stable world, her in one of her country's most turbulent periods. Somehow, we ended up doing graduate degrees in the same program at the same university. If I had chosen a different program (I had two options) or she hadn't been allowed to go overseas to study, it might have all ended right there, but everything aligned and we met and ... to go further would be TMI.

Thanksgiving is long over in Canada but, unfortunately, our stores have insisted in joining in the whole Black Friday thing (largely because stores in border towns were losing business to US Black Friday sales). I'm not much of a shopaholic, so I'll just hang out here. A beer, Rump. Make it a pitcher.

Topic Multiparter publishing
Posted 23 Nov 2016 06:08

My first story here was the first of a trilogy. I got the second part up fairly quickly (for me) after the first, but then I had about a year's gap before I managed to get the final part finished, and no-one really cared by then, lol.

I have another trilogy in mind, which will probably take me until 2019 to complete, but my plan would be to write it all and post them about a week apart.

Problem is, I get so excited about posting that I can't wait to get the first part up. Then I inevitably get distracted by something shiny, or some music, or Rachel gets me addicted to izombie and then I'm useless for weeks on end.


PS. Hi Scott love7

Hi, Jen. Big Hugs

Distraction is my big worry, not so much something shiny or Rachel turning me on to a TV show Regaeman Man as my mind wandering to a new plot. I have a story idea (non-erotic, though it started out erotic) that I came up with years ago (before I discovered Lush) that I've never really been able to stick with long enough to get the plot fully worked out.

my advice, finish the whole thing, then release the chapters a week apart.

That does seem to be the consensus on here so I'll keep plugging away. Big Hugs for you, too, Rach.

Topic Any suggestions?
Posted 22 Nov 2016 13:40

There's a couple other threads on the subject if you go hunting. My preferred technique isn't really kinky, just great at giving me good, strong orgasms. I like to lube my cock and fist, then stroke very slowly by either sliding my hand along my slick shaft or thrusting into my closed fist. By adjusting the tightness of my grip, I can control pressure and therefore "edge" a bit. Sometime do it in the shower with soap, sometimes in bed with lube.

Topic Multiparter publishing
Posted 22 Nov 2016 13:22

So, I am making progress with my first multi-chapter story. No idea how long it will be in the end since I'm only on chapter 2.

However, I am starting to think about how to publish it. My current thinking is that I'll wait until I've got 4-5 parts complete, then start putting up one a week. That means it will be a month or more before I run of stuff to post, which should let me get a couple more done and then keep ahead of things from there. Of course, it may end up being only 4-5 parts but I don't think so. The first couple chapters are fairly short and punchy.

Alternatively, I wait until it is done and then publish at a faster rate, but that could take a while since, while I've got the basic outline done, I haven't got it completely parsed out into scenes and chapters yet so I'm not sure of the final length.

One thing I don't want to do is to start publishing and then "lose the plot" and leave things hanging. That's why I want to wait until at least a few chapters are done before I start actually posting them.

So, authors of Lush, how do you do your multiparters? Publish as you write, get a head start and then publish, or wait until it is complete before posting anything?

Topic Adult Sites Without Age Verification to Be Blocked
Posted 21 Nov 2016 13:57

Many sites just use a credit card to verify since most CC issuers won't give cards to people under 18. So the paying members of any level should be verifiable that way. Not sure what you do about non-paying visitors, though I imagine it mean testing for UK IP addresses and only allowing registered subscribers from those blocks. There's no similar movement afoot here in Canada so I hope that whatever they do can be limited to constituencies that actually require it.

Topic January Fast Approaches... Donald Trump is becoming the President... Should we be TERRIFIED???
Posted 19 Nov 2016 06:03

Given the choice you Americans had, I'm not entirely surprised by the outcome. I'm watching warily up here, esp. as certain hardcore elements in our own Conservative movement start thinking they can hitch their cart to his horse. We just had an anti-abortion, anti-gay right-winger win a seat in our provincial legislature, though I think outrage against the assholes governing this province had more to do with it than Trump spillover. Bigger worry is Kellie Leitch, a candidate to lead the national Conservative Party who is touting Trump-like stands on immigration and "Canadian Values".
