I have tried to put ItLoTM behind DWcuts but for some reason the system is not co-operating. Hopefully it will be fixed by the time I post further chapters :(

Prologue )
shakatany: (ItLoTM icon-plain)
In the back of my brain there was a large unruly Babylon 5 bush that had been growing wild for over a decade but now a B5 muse has landed on me with a vengeance and I've begun paying attention to that bush and pruning it. The muse is "screaming" in my ear. I'm once again living, breathing, dreaming B5. I'm channeling lines of dialog while I'm walking down the street hoping to recall it long enough to write it down. I've been organizing my story by sorting through dozens and dozens of scraps of paper with bits of dialogue and miscellanea that I've accumulated over the years. And boy does it feel good to throw away those scraps of paper once I'm through adding what's written on them to my online notes and story outline. I have begun to see the basic structure of the fic though I've known where it begins and ends for years. Despite a tremendous amount of trimming, eliminating scenes, characters and plotlines, making it half the size of what it was, it will still be a long fic, consisting of dozens of chapters and vignettes as the story spans over 50 years but I now know the basic scenes that I need and I can rearrange dialogue and various plot points with far more ease on the computer than on paper. Now, of course, comes the hard part...actually writing the story. Wish me luck.

It's now 61 degrees, almost 30 degrees cooler than yesterday - whew!

The book launch was a rousing success. Of course we behind- the-scenes folks were paddling madly but fortunately it didn't show. The space was large enough for the 100 or so people who showed up as it was a large studio divided up into various smaller spaces with great flow. Until Amy told me the party was being held at Peter Max's studio I truly thought he had passed away some time ago as he was such a huge hit in the 60s and 70s but he's only 71 with a younger looking wife (who's much too thin). I actually got to talk to Melissa Leo who is small and also thin and almost unnoticeable in "civilian" life. She lives somewhere in the Catskills and is in town for the Tribeca Film Festival in which she has an entry and is a juror for a film award. The food was plentiful and delicious and vegetarian of course. This was a lesson in how to do a book launch on a shoestring as Amy got several vegetarian restaurants in town to donate some of the food and organic wine and the guacamole and hummus, which garnered many compliments, came from Costco!

I made a point to look at all the artwork. His style has changed a bit from his early days but the colors in his later work are also extremely vibrant. I played a game of which one I would like if I had the money (the prices were in the thousands) and this was my favorite. The party was supposed to last from 6:30 to 8:30 but when I left at 9 it was still going strong. All in all it was a very memorable evening. The next book event will be at one of Lilly Pulitzer's stores but thankfully they will do all the work.

Arlen Specter has just announced that he is turning Democrat!! Now once Al Franken is seated the Dems will have their 60 filibuster-proof seats - yay!!

Today is the day of the official book launch party of my friend Amy's book. It will be held this evening at Peter Max's studio somewhere near Lincoln Center. We are all in a tizzy doing a zillion and ten last minute things. The temperature here in NY will be 90 degrees - what a day to have a party with over 100 guests!! There will be a mix of people from humane societies, farm sanctuaries, vegans and show biz (Melissa Leo is expected to come). If I don't post for a while it will be because I'll be recuperating *g*

[Error: unknown template qotd]I made debauched_angel's acquaintance while she was using another name from her now defunct website. That must be about 6 or 7 years ago.

Way back in October '07 I wrote a post with a link to a cockatoo dancing to the Backstreet Boys. Here is one dancing to Ray Charles:


I recently caught the new "Red Dwarf" special on the internet and IMO it wasn't very special :(
I also caught up on the 6th and 7th episodes of "Law & Order:UK" which are the last to be shown until the fall. Both were rewrites of episodes of the original series (1.06 was based on "Heaven" and 1.07 was based on "Helpless") but done with a few small twists and again I must say that the British stiff upper lip has vanished - the last ep "Aleysha" was absolutely riveting and much better than the original.

Once more I found a long lost article on the web. Way back in 1997 I read an essay in the Smithsonian that so resonated with me that I never forgot it. I finally tracked it down again. May I present to you Think of all you'd miss if your reading skills weren't 'enhanced' by age by Frederica Mathewes-Green. LOL

According to this GeoCities, a free Web hosting service that achieved fame in the mid-90s, died Thursday at the Yahoo headquarters in Silicon Valley. GeoCities was 15 years old.

 

GeoCities had suffered a long and drawn-out battle with its health over the past decade. An antiquated service model and outdated technology are widely blamed for the struggle. An official cause of death, however, has yet to be determined....GeoCities site is expected to remain functional through midyear as a tribute to its life. Funeral arrangements are now pending.

Many of the early BtVS fics were posted on geocities sites. I don't know what will happen to the geocities websites but if you have any favorite fics that are only found on such a website I suggest you start saving toot sweet. There are a bunch on BtVSSlash that I liked and Jameschick's site and Kizmet and Windzweaver and...
