p.s. Hey. ** politekid, Hi, Oscar! You are correct, sir, I am very interested in that. Thank you, thank you for thinking of me in its regard. I will hereby plunge. You ultra-good? Sure hope so. xo ** Tea, Hi. My life’s been weird lately too, what a coincidence, or maybe how normal. Wow, cool therapist, and big up to him for urging you to enter here. Thing is there are all kinds of ways to get known, right? I’ve always done whatever I wanted to do, and I got known albeit in a ‘cult’ way. Yeah, I stopped drugs in the 90s, and I think if I didn’t have that peculiar high that comes with writing to make up for the loss, it would’ve been pretty hard as opposed to realising the high of writing is kind of infinite. What do you write? I guess I mean fiction, poetry, non-fiction, other, all or none of the above? I’d be interested to read some at some point if that becomes an idea of interest to you. Big Thursday! ** Jack Skelley, Awesome, glad you dug. You are the most deviated person I’ve ever known in my entire life even though I don’t even know what the hell that means. ** Misanthrope, A ‘little’ Paris? Paris doesn’t do ‘little’. I saw that Suede and MSP are touring there together. Pretty killer double bill there. MSP are wunderbar live. Definitely go. No, I was thinking more like Ben Turpin. Onwardian and upwardiness. ** _Black_Acrylic, Cool! Oh, you know, I think I’ve only read one AM homes novel, her ‘transgressive’ one and the one that made her famous initially: ‘The End of Alice’. I liked that one, but, otherwise, I’m not versed enough to do a recommendation. But, yeah, you could start there? Maybe others around here know. Everyone, Are there any AM Homes fans here who could recommend a good book by her to start with for our curious pal _Black_Acrylic? Thanks. ** Dominik, Hi!!! Oh, don’t undervalue the value of a great editor like yourself. What I do here with the blog is pure editorial, you know? I wanted to buy my friend  this giant fireworks box that shoots many exploding things very high in the air where they burst amazingly, but then I realised that he couldn’t shoot those off in Paris without being arrested, so I ended up buying him a bunch of smaller fireworks that might still get him arrested but less arrested. Wow,I  really hope he doesn’t read this before I give him the gift at noon today because the surprise would be destroyed. Your love of yesterday had such an admirable goal and desire. Love, G. ** Bill, Yes, very sad about his passing. He did a lot work in SF and was very involved with Canyon Cinema. You picked two goodies among the book bunch. ** Jamie, Hey, pal! It’s so very awesome to see you! It’s been ages! I’m doing alright, all in all, thanks. That’s very sad news about the folding of the monthly film club. Oh, man, sucks. But, yes, labor of love thanks to even the smart film buffs’ utter lack of daring and disinterest in learning anything actually new. Grr. ‘RT’ is going to happen, and hopefully pretty soon, but there have been and continue to be imposed travails that exhaust us and that I best not discuss here. We’ll get there. You’re writing! What are you writing? How’s everything else with you? Do please hang out if it suits you. Would be sweet. Beastly friendly love, me. ** Steve Erickson, I haven’t yet investigated Dimes Square, and perhaps I won’t, ha ha. Dominik is reading the Masters/Dahmer book and said it’s really good. I haven’t read it yet. I do think ‘Killing for Company’ is the best of the serial killer books that I’ve read, and I’ve read quite a lot. ** HUNKUSRAZE, Yes, use that ultimate weapon ethically. Thanks for reading my stuff. It won’t build muscles though, I have to warn you. Yes, every artist feels that exact same fear. If you didn’t, you wouldn’t be an artist maybe. Leap, iow. Later, dude. ** Okay. It’s been quite a while since I foisted one of my gif works on y’all, and it being Halloween time, I decided to restore this Halloween-related one that ended up after bit of editing being one of the stories in my book  of short gif fictions  ‘Zac’s Coral Reef’. Enjoy it if possible with my compliments. See you tomorrow.

    Cooperstown! (Have I already used that one?) Methinks I shall snag 1 or 2 of these choice gifs and a Jon Behrens clip for my IG story page…. I know I have big news but only 2 coffees in this morning and MEee HAVE NO BRAIN WoRdz. Oh! Interstellar Theme Park is No 20 on Small Press Distribution Bestsellers List. Does that even mean anything? Part 2 of the book’s L.A. Launch (Eastside edition) is Sunday at Stories in Echo Park. Where I now virtually reside. Tosh Berman is MC!! .. . I was at Stories last Sunday for “Autofiction” night (whatever that means) with Chris Kraus and Ottesa Moshfegh. Place was packed up the bunghole. (I have secret news about that event to relate later…) Here’s more: Legend Ron Koertge is doing a reading Oct 13 (“Lucky!” – Napoleon Dynamite voice) at Village Well– great newish bookstore in my Culver City hood. Just call me Jumpin Jack POetry Flash. Verily and sooneth we shall each other behold! Go Dodgers … -Jack

    I feel I have a need to see Suede in Los Angeles. I got into them very slowly, and step-by-step. Brett Anderson, their lead figure, is sort of a younger version of Mick Jagger, and in a good way. I have watched countless live videos of them, and he’s high-energy all the time on the stage. Also, his first memoir is quite good.

    And what a great blog today. I love the image with image, and it becomes something else. I feel like another part of my brain is taking it all in. Narration works in many ways!

      Black: I would highly recommend A. M. Homes’ book of short stories THE SAFETY OF OBJECTS as a gateway drug to the rest of her work. Terrific read. The film version is also good.

    Hi!!

    Thank you for the SCAB compliment(s). (If I could insert emojis, I’d send you a small heart one here.) And a major thank you for reviving this awesome post!

    Did your friend like his present? Hopefully, he’ll find a remote spot where he can enjoy it fully without being arrested, haha.

    And yesterday’s love is definitely here to share with him! Impressive, fuck! Love feeling like the skeleton with the set of female legs in your GIF story above, Od.

    These Halloween-related posts remind me that I really should start reading some of the unread horror novels/short story collections I have lying around!

    Dennis, would you be interested in letting the blog host a day related to the upcoming Neo-Decadent anthology (NEO-DECADENT EVANGELION)? I think you would find it interesting, as you know some of the contributors, like Audrey Szasz, Golnoosh Nour, and… well, me, obviously, ha ha (among others). I’m very excited about it, partly because it’s been 3 years since I’ve appeared in an anthology, but mainly because I think with this one, there’s no weak link.

  5. _Black_Acrylic

    GIF novels and Halloween and horror stories all add together to hit a sweet spot here. It does make a perfect kind of sense.

    Sad to report that my flat purchase is currently stuck in stasis with the solicitor not doing what she said she would do, which would make it the whole process a great deal easier for everyone involved. We will just have to keep chipping away and eventually I’ll be out of this so-called Recovery Hub.

    Hey D, it’s nice to be back in the comments again, I must say!
    I remember this gif piece from the first time round and I enjoyed it again today, in bed with the first coffee of the day. I’d noticed that you’ve not been doing some many gif fiction pieces, or maybe not posting them on the blog. Are you still working on some? I always love them, even though I find it hard to articulate any thoughts on them. There’s a beautiful sequence in today’s one, the second last with the ‘are you frightened’ text followed by the boy yelling.
    I’m glad RT is still full steam ahead, even with cash travails. I’m super excited to finally see it one day.
    To answer your writing question, I took Chelsea Hodson’s Finish What You Start course a few months back and it’s totally whipped my writing game into shape. I’m currently editing a novella I drafted years ago and writing a first draft of another. For someone like me ,who used to find it unbearable to even look at old writing, this is wonderful.
    I’m still enjoying Brussels life, even sans experimental cinema club, and really enjoying the sudden lurch into Autumn (although it already suddenly feels like Winter).
    What else has been happening with you?
    Oh yeah, your Piss day was a total winner, thanks! Can you recall the piss-based band you featured on the blog once? There was a full live video and everything.
    Gelignite love,
    Jamie

    One of your best. Xx

    Yeah, I also became addicted to writing for quite some time. I would pull all-nighters and not eat so I could keep going. It took people giving me an intervention for me to realize what I was doing. An intervention for writing…that’s something, alright. I have a better handle on balancing my time now, though the occasional sleepless night comes along.

    I write both fiction and non-fiction, mainly the former. I want to get into writing poetry, but I have this strange embarrassment with the medium. Most everything I write is selfish wish fulfillment. I find that writing things out instead of really doing them can excise the urge. I take my urge to “parent” people out on fictional characters, for example.

    And it’d be an honour (seriously) if you’d like to read it sometime. I just need time to get better I think, haha. The past year, I’ve “matured” a lot, because I’m now resisting the urge for instant gratification. I.e., drawing things out, rather than getting into what I want ASAP.
