Because my muses are demanding to be wined and dined first...

Aug. 8th, 2012

It's that time of year!


I'm really sorry, I'm resurrecting this banner from years ago and I don't know who made it. If it's yours, please let me know and I'll credit you!

PRART!!

That's Porn+Art, for those who aren't as portmanful as [info]hannah_dee. But that's neither here nor there, because what's here now are a few pieces of porny goodness donated to support the [info]bbtp_challenge.

NSFW, obviously. )

IT'S ALMOST TIME!!!



TWO. FREAKING. DAYS. UNTIL. [info]bbtp_challenge!!!!!!!

Sundries

I've been looking for a new knitting project, and I found it! (Much less tricksy than the last pair of gloves!) And in pretty, pretty green. *pets*

[insert relevant transition here]

In complete randomness, I just discovered that someone I went to high school with now writes gay erotica. Exceptionally good gay erotica. What's extra weird is that I bought a compilation of Best Gay Erotica years ago, and he has a story in it, although it's a common enough name that I never imagined it would be him. But yeah, some Facebook stalking confirmed it is. Crazyskates!

In somewhat-related news, I finished my porn for [info]bbtp_challenge last night. Have you?

So here's the scoop for you new folks: A few years ago, shortly after many of us emigrated here from LiveJournal, there was a general feeling that we'd gotten so caught up in politics and wank that we'd forgotten the reason we loved fandom: the porn! Thus BBTP was born. It was my first and still my favourite fest -- a total free-for-all, open to any fandom, any genre... heck, I posted vintage beefcake/pinups icons and the story of the Athletic Model Guild one year. Anything porny that you can contribute to the wonderful IJ community is welcome!

PSA and porn!

Looks like LJ is dead. Oh well. Come to IJ and DW! We have cookies! And porn! That's right, folks, it's time for my favourite fest:



Just got home from a lovely dinner with [info - personal] paraka et al. in their new abode. OMG ice cream cake! And now I am about to pass out, but I must leave you with this: The long-awaited (by us, anyway) swimwear photoshoot! )

Hope you're all having a wonderful weekend!

BBTP: Vintage wank material

BBTP: A Semi-True Parable of Porn

In the beginning there was a young film director named Bob Mizer. And the angel Smutael appeared to him, saying, "Bob Mizer, thou hast been chosen by the Lord to go forth and bring gay male porn into the world." The young man could not believe his ears. "But how can I do this?" he asked. "Nudie pictures of women are everywhere, but naked men are illegal!" And Smutael spoke, saying, "Thou shalt create the Athletic Model Guild where thou shalt photograph men in various states of undress, and thou shalt call it 'physique,' and it shall be good."

Opa!

Well, that was lots of fun! Turned out it was the first night of Ottawa's Greek Fest, so Rhonda and I met her bf there, enjoyed great music and delicious food (meat-on-a-stick! dolmades! olives! and wine, so much wine!), and then we danced off all the calories. And watched the Zorba Dancers, a male dance troupe who apparently enjoyed touching each other as much as they enjoyed dancing. Oh, and during the belly dancing portion of the evening, there were also a few men dancing, and boy could they shimmy!

Just skimming my flist tonight -- I will catch up this weekend, I promise -- but I found a great article on Rocknrolla. (Heads up, [info]omarandjohnny!) I'm looking forward to it ... a little something to temper my disappointment over HBP. (As is this drool-worthy Draco/Harry picture. As [info]sarcastic_jo says, "They're so shagging." Damn WB for delaying my eyecandy!)

And I promised a Porny Snippet tonight -- [info]bbtp_challenge is in just 17 days! Not wanting to neglect the artists, I went looking and found this amazing thing by [info]artisticentropy ...

*takes a moment*





Now I'm beat, so I'm going to turn in. Sleep well, chickadees!

MS Office doth vex me

I've been having serious MS Outlook woe lately—every time I close it, I get a message saying it encountered an error and has to close. Whatever, that's just mildly annoying. But today it wouldn't connect to the gmail POP server and that's not on. So I summoned up my courage and uninstalled Office. Boy, like I was telling [info]muppet, watching all your files flip from Word and Excel docs to unreadable creatures needs to be on that list of most traumatic life experiences, not far behind divorce and losing your job. Both of which I've experienced, so I think the comparison is apt. Anyway, everything's reinstalled now, only a few hiccups in restoring my backup file, and gmail's feeding in now, but the error message is still there. Now it's gone from mildly annoying to grrr!

You know, last year when my sucky HP laptop was in the service centre for over 100 days and I was flipping through Staples' loaner computers, I got really good at installing and troubleshooting things. After a year of not having to deal with it, I've forgotten so much and I've lost a lot of the confidence in my abilities. I'm a bit sorry about that. Not that I want to return to those days, but I miss feeling that tech savvy.

Guess it's like anything you practice, tho, which is why I've really got to push myself to write. That muscle's atrophying too. I've got about 1000 words of my [info]bbtp_challenge entry written but it's still pre-porn, dammit! *shoves the boys together* And I was really hoping to have a second one done by then, too. "The hammer is my penis" is far too tempting a prompt to ignore.

Wow, I can't believe it's almost August, scary thought there! Time to start thinking about the Toronto Film Festival (Sept 4-13). I'm debating whether to splurge and stay downtown (which would mean only going for a few days) or staying longer at a cheap hotel in the hinterlands. Of course, as always the schedule won't be released until like the day before the festival starts. Prepare to hear plenty of bitching about TIFF admin in upcoming weeks! (And if there's anybody in T who cares to meet up, please let me know! I'm definitely planning a visit to The Purple Purl this year.)

Bring Back the Porn!

I'll spare you a recap of my week, which other than dinner with [info]pierspaul last night has been dead boring, and instead serve you up another Porny Snippet(TM). I picked this one for those on my flist who've been sucked into Supernatural. I never understood what all the fuss was about, but after reading this I can start to see the attraction.

As NSFW as you can possibly get )

37 days!!!

A moment's peace

This week's almost over, and I say goodbye and good riddance. But wow, has it ever been a reminder of how much I need/love/want you guys. You've kept me sane and that's been no mean feat.

Special most wonderful thanks are due to the amazing [info]angela_snape who totally made my day with Work Woes (a drabble for me!!!) and to my darling [info]sdk without whom I would have been left un-Horribled. YOU GUYS ROCK!

I'm having a breather tonight before the last gasp of hell week. Searching through some vids I found this stunning piece of work: In Exchange for Your Tomorrows by Lim. You Snape fans will have seen it, I'm sure. I only discovered it because I'm in love with her SGA video, This Is How It Works, and you know how those google-trails go. Anyway, if you've never seen it (or if you need a refresher) check it out and be amazed. To me, it seems to distil the magic of the wizarding world into its purest form.

And you know, it seems like a good time for more Porny Snippets(TM). 45 days until Bring Back The Porn!! Which means that 320 days ago, [info]xie_xie_xie posted a sizzling hot story called "TLC". How can you go wrong with a story that starts out with...click for teh pr0n. )

Jul. 15th, 2008

Today is an important day!

And no, I'm not talking about Dr. Horrible, which I can't see, dammit, because the servers have crashed. Grrr.

No, this is another occasion: It's 48 days until Bring Back The Porn!!!

Not excited yet? Well, then I think it's time for Porny Snippets(TM). That's right, random bite-sized bits of porn from stories I haven't read, hell, from fandoms I don't read in, in this case with characters I don't even know! It doesn't matter, it's PORN!

And it's a reminder that last year's Bring Back The Porn Challenge generated a heck of a lot of porny goodness. So with no further ado, here's your first Porny Snippet(TM). )

Let's keep the porn flowing, peeps!

Jul. 6th, 2008

I didn't see this one coming

Ganked from [info]telesilla

Which Fantasy/SciFi Character Are You?


I don't believe in the no-win scenario. An impassioned commander with more respect for individuals than for authority, you have a no-holds-barred approach to life and its obstacles.

I'm still recovering from Doctor Who. I admit, I was blubbering like a baby for a good while there. I want to watch it again tomorrow before I talk about it -- I'll have the tissues handy this time.

Oh, and it's that time again! Go forth and pimp:


Clicking the banner will take you to the asylum.

Last year's BBTP holds a special place in my heart -- that's when I wrote my very first HP story. Not to mention that it was an all-around incredible porn-filled day. I can't wait for this one!

Apr. 11th, 2008

Help! I'm being oppressed!

Arrrrggggh! I'd uploaded a bunch of icons to Photobucket for a fest. Now they're giving me the



I know they don't want "pornographic images" but I don't understand their rationale for leaving some and deleting others. What's the logic here? )

It is more fun when he's around

Anybody else incapacitated by tonight's Torchwood? I was hoping to be productive this evening, but instead I spent it rewatching select scenes (you know the ones I'm talking about) and squeeing like mad. Somebody must write office fetish Janto fic now. Extra points for creative use of a photocopier.

Eye candy: not just fanon anymore..

(ETA: And here's some wonderful office fetish porn: Ass on the Glass by smallwaldo.)

I also watched the new BBC miniseries of Sense & Sensibility, which was really quite dreadful. No, that's not fair. One thing I always like about BBC adaptations is that their heroines look real, pretty but never too glamorous, and Hattie Morahan's Elinor fit my mental image well. The lovely sideburns of David Morrissey played Alan RickmanCol. Brandon and Edward was played by David Stevens, a beautiful man who looks like the lovechild of Hugh Grant and Paul Rudd. But poor Dom Cooper needs to be avoiding period pieces in the future. And the music was awfully distracting and one of the Steele sisters was played by Little Britain's Vicky Pollard. So entertaining bordering on dreadful.

Yes, I'm indulging in lots of mindless television because I almost lost my job yesterday. I thought a big deadline was on Wednesday, and realised almost too late that it was instead Tuesday. Panic is a wonderful motivator. I managed to get through everything, and clients were happy, but it was a hell of a day and I never ever want to go through that again.

Finally, I put together my first mix for[info]mixed_music. But since it's a locked asylum, I figured I'd post it up here too. (And join [info]mixed_music too, there's some very interesting music there.)

Roadtrip music with a Southern flair )

Missing muses

The Bring Back the Porn master list is posted, many thanks to [info]unbroken_halo. It's an impressive collection, with some fandoms I'd never read before (Dead Poets' Society for one, with a great entry). But I'm a little shocked to find some favourite fandoms missing. Where is BDS? or LOTR? or Heroes? I need my broyay!!

Hmmm ... I think I'm going to have to drag out some of the old boys for the [info]ides_of_march.

Sep. 1st, 2007

Saturdays are great, aren't they?

What a nice day. I woke up, posted porn, made a big breakfast, read some porn, took a long nap, read some more porn, made dinner, read more porn. Every day should be so peaceful.

And there's some really great stuff out there! I've read awesome Dead Poets' Society wankfic, lots and lots of hot HP stuff, some gorgeous Atlantis fics, and even several original pieces that knocked my socks off. Now I wish I'd bookmarked the ones I liked so I could rec them, but that would have required foresight and, well, my brain's taking a holiday too. But one I definitely recommend is "Tranquilo", a Burnt Money fic that just broke my heart. Oh, and if you haven't yet read [info]sarcasticchick's wonderful SGA/Torchwood x-over, you definitely should check it out. You can find all the rest at [info]bbtp_challenge.

You know, I think today finally broke the grip that LJ's had on me. I've been going to IJ first, reading it, and then heading over to LJ to read my flist hold-outs. But when I went over today, I spent about 5 minutes flying through, realising that the only thing that interested me were these cool goddess icons, and came flying back to IJ where I've been amused all day. *hugs flist*

However! I do have one small gripe. WTF is up with this "highlight to read the warnings" trend?** Do they think they're being sneaky and won't get caught by people looking for Very Bad Things™ in their fics? Sorry, but that's not how the Internet works. It's still text, even if it's white text, and it's still going to show up in a search.

But that's a small annoyance on an otherwise perfectly pleasant evening. Hope y'all are all enjoying your weekends!


ETA: And btw, I'm not talking about big spoilery warnings that give away things like "death of a major character." No, the ones I've seen today include things like:

* Unbeta’d, femmeslash crack
* Minor in a sexual situation...dripping come?
* Male/male sex
* RPS

ETA2: Okay, I screwed up -- the highlighting was how [info]bbtp_challenge requested headers be formatted. Aaaand I guess that means I didn't follow directions. *facepalms*

Now, I have been seeing more highlighting recently, before BBTP, but hopefully most of it will go away now.

Bring Back the Porn

My f-list is overflowing with porn!

And, once again, I am absolutely floored by fandom. This was just an idea that [info]florida_minxie threw out on her journal, and people took it and fucking ran with it! You guys, you just rock, you know that?

Here are my contributions to the cause:

Fair Play (Harry Potter): Harry and Draco take a break. With porn, of course. (NC-17, 665 words of total PWP.)

Attention (Stargate Atlantis): A McShep drabble dedicated to [info]seleneheart, who shared one of Einstein's best observations: "Any man who can drive safely while kissing a pretty girl is simply not giving the kiss the attention it deserves." (R rated)

And over at [info]nsfw_icons I posted a few naked men bases, most from the French Rugby Calendar. I am so not an icon maker, but the world can never have enough pictures of naked sweaty men, right?

Now that I've got my contributions posted, I get to spend the rest of the day wallowing in porn. What a beautiful day!
