We still have hair!

In hindsight, I don't know how this didn't burn off either Marty's or my hair… We were literally engulfed by Erik's fireball, but luckily walked away with both a lit cigarette and a good shot. Anyone know what a Century Optics 0.3x lense is worth? That was my other worry!


While I was gone, Rachel had been handling it, but since I got back I hadn't had a chance to update the newsfeed so it went unchanged for a half week. It was sort of an experiment as well; I wondered, if I left it, would people step up and start submitting stories, or would it simply result in complaints.

Big surprise, it simply resulted in complaints.

Anyway, it's been updated. Here's a few of the stories that I thought were more interesting from this set:

Anyway, I hope that cuts down on my hatemail on the “why haven't you updated the newsfeed” subject, at least until tomorrow. I've got to get to work on some offline things for now so I'm not doing a non-BME news update, but it's not as if the lies will only last for a day.

20 pictures

Some more pictures from the filming in England…
I'll do a trailer some time this week coming up:

I need a holiday

Before anyone suggests that I work too hard, let me show you my fortune cookie of the night… According to the prophets, I don't work hard enough.

Adults only

The adults only system has been fully coded. Right now it allows you to rate either single diary entries (which is what I'll use, since my page as a whole is all-ages, but I do post adults-only entries regularly) or your entire page, including galleries. There isn't currently a way to rate individual galleries but I'll do that in the future.

My bandwidth is all being consumed by the upload right now, so I won't actually make this change until tomorrow some time, at which point I'll post full instructions on how to use it (it's really easy).

In any case, I'm going to go brush the snow off the satellite dish so the upload doesn't crash, have a **** so I can keep my supper down (I've been having a lot of trouble eating lately; I'm very environmentally sensitive and the UK really did me in pollution-wise as far as I can tell), and then try and eat.

I take too many pills, it helps to ease the pain
I made a couple of dollar bills, but still I feel the same
Everybody knows my name
They say it way out loud
A lot of folks fuck with me
It's hard to hang out in crowds
I guess that's the price you pay
To be some big shot like I am

Then after that it's back to work for as long as I can stay awake and handle the pain I guess, then I'll take some codeine and lie down for a while. Eventually I'll wake up, and the cycle repeats. I feel like I ought to be telling you how I've seen things you wouldn't believe… Attack ships off the shores of Orian, and C-beams glittering in the dark off of Tanhauser Gate, and things like that…

Sometimes I just wish I'd stuck with being a goat farmer!

Not that it's a big surprise, but I got this out-of-the-blue this morning:

Yeah, he's one of my better known but less well-equipped superfans… There's a dozen or so people that claim to hate me, but are totally obsessed and message me strange notes like that constantly. My somewhat bored reply: “Atthay isway uiteqay ascinatingfay. Elltay emay indkay irsay, erewhay oday ouyay etgay ouryay eatgray intellectway?”
