I’ve always loved pulp magazine covers, which is why I’ve been reading Pulp Covers for years.
WARREN ELLIS LTD Articles.
Yes, this is “ironic.” I am taking painkillers and not even looking at the damn news yet.
The temperature has dropped hard here, but so has the pollen count. Frankly, I tend to prefer autumn weather anyway, so I’ll take it.
Inbox 15, and I really need to reply to all of those today, but it’s noon and I can’t see straight yet. And I need to straight into the GENEVA overview document and land that by end of play. Already sent out notes on an editorial response, so I guess I’m in the saddle already. I am alive, and will begin responding to messages shortly.
I got three of the five GENEVA module documents out the door today, while talking to Lordess a bit and half-watching the beautiful film THE WHISPERING STAR and listening to old Leyland Kirby/Caretaker stuff a lot. Tomorrow I have to get into the main GENEVA overview document, so it’s another day of broken focus because I have to jump around the document and figure out various parts of it. These bible-style documents are never clean writes for me, it’s always bumping between sections and expanding bit by bit. Pain in the arse.
“Spanish porn actor arrested over fatal toad venom ceremony.” Okay, I’m out. G’night, reader.
I keep meaning to link to this and forgetting: ATLAS MINOR, the blog of writer James A Reeves. Short pieces of writing with a photo, often accompanied by a music choice. It’s very good, and has become a daily read for me.
“Today I learned that curfew comes from an old French term to “cover fire.” Medieval towns would ring a bell each night as an order for citizens to extinguish their hearths and prepare for sleep.
“Helicopters hover in the sky all day, waiting for something to happen. The streets smell like fresh plywood.”
New beard oil from Fires of Freyja, who you can find on Etsy. It’s very good. Today I smell of the sea. As well as, you know, cigarettes, coffee and failure.
First half of the day will be turning this PROJECT GENEVA rough into an outline that can be read by other humans, because right now it’s 2000 words of gibberish. Then rewriting two other GENEVA module outlines. That’s basically going to be the entire day. I am not ready.
Inbox 12. Keeping one eye on it because I got an extremely interesting proposition the other day (get your mind out of the gutter) and I’m waiting to see if it turns into anything. In the meantime, I have my little corner of the world to attend to, and people are waiting on me to generate paid work for them. Here we go.
