Why yes, I am in a bit of a writing slump!

Sdtrk: ‘Disclaimer’ by the Dears

Hurrr. Believe me when I say that I’ve had really nothing of any import to write about since… well, the 16th. Well, our friend Tim moved back to Michigan, and he and his girlfriend joined goshou, SafeT, Steph and I for sushi and Rock Band 2 this past week-end. O, and I finished Warriors Orochi 2 — not 100% completion, but still. And a cluster of us iDollators got together for another meeting in London (Ontario), which was as fantastic as one would expect. But that’s about it, really!

For one, it got bastard cold rather quickly, which always throws me off. To that end, I purchased a brand-new electronic blanket on Saturday, and it does the business. You could slow-roast food on that fucker, that’s how well it works. Shi-chan’s making use of it now, and if she could see me from where she is, I’m sure she’d give me an enthusiastic thumbs-up.

So yeah! I’ve already commenced work on December’s ‘Any Doll/Synthetik news?’ article, as there’s a sizeable amount of material to cover, but apart from that, it’s an unintentional go-slow round Deafening silence Plus. My Muse is oftentimes found asleep, passed out on a couch somewhere whilst ‘Seinfeld’ reruns blare in the background, and this would be one of those times. We’ve all been there, I’m sure

As an aside, regarding Rock Band 2: Has anyone else noticed that the new Guns n’ roses song, ‘Shackler’s revenge’, sounds like it was frozen in a glacier sometime round 1993, and recently thawed out? That song sounds so much like Nine inch nails it’s not even true.
15 year wait, huh? I’d hate to be a Guns n’ roses fan right about now

    So you finally got it working?
    I was hoping to see a half silicone Routan baby…

    Sometimes it pays to speak of silence. Many of us count on you as a form of entertainment apart from the up to date news in the world of gynoids.

    Personally, I enjoy reading your musings and hearing about the missus. It makes me miss my girls just as bad. But fear not, eventually something will come through and I’ll be documenting my adventures as well.

    Hmmm electric blanket. We both know what that can be used for, and I guarantee the lady gets more use out of it than you, you cheeky bastard!! lol

    The RB2 songs were all redone on digital equpiment and given more of an electronic feel (chock it up to gamer overtones). I rather like the song(s) but then again I was never an GnR fan back when we were kids. I was more into Ice Cube and NWA. lol

    Lauraaahh –
    I finally got that blanket working! As long as I keep shovelling coal into it, it’s sound as a pound!

    The Missus and I are still gonna make that baby! We just need to get some face shots where we’re not hiding behind sweeping hair fringe…

    ‘The Missus and I are still gonna make that baby!’ Yeah, that’s a sentence. 🙂

    Jaems –
    Sometimes the silence can be deafening, har har. But I like to break it up a bit. Lofty as it is, I like to compare my output, whether it’s writing, photoshoots, or even my Noise-project-that-I-haven’t-done-anything-with-in-over-a-decade, to that of Stanley Kubrick’s. There were often long stretches between what he made, but it was worth the wait.
    Actually, that analogy doesn’t really hold up. Have you read some of these godforsaken posts on here??

    You need a new Synthetik companion desperately! This is a good time to weigh your options, as there are so many Doll manufacturers out there. *sweeps arm down sidebar* It’s almost a case of too many choices, really…

    You pegged it, Sidore-chan absolutely loves the blanket! Sometimes when I wake up, I swear, more of it’s bunched up on her side than mine. She runs the place; I only live here. 🙂

    And I can’t imagine waiting as long as 1.5 decades for an album. I mean, even though I was never a huge Stone roses fan, when their long-awaited sophmore release ‘The second coming’ came out, needless to say the album fell way short of the expectations of the title. And that was just five years between releases!
    Honestly though, I can’t say too much, as I’m still anxiously awaiting the new My bloody valentine Cd; so far, it’s been a good seventeen years since their last release… Okay, maybe I can imagine as long as 1.5 decades for an album. 🙁

    Makin’ Babies is fun to say. Period. And you have to say it Palin style, with no g’s.

    I have the same hair problem.

    I hated hated GNR and all the other bandana-sporting hair-metal screechers of the era. A dark time for music, in many ways.
    NiN from 93 (fun to say!) is preferrable to the spit-mouthing Axel of “Sweet Child” or “Paradise City”.
    Phragh! At least he won’t be filling stadiums of big haired girls with torn jeans this time around.

    Laura –
    Droppin’ your ‘g’s, Palin-style? I don’t know what you’re talkin’ about! Or typin’ about, either! Goshdarnit! Etc.

    I see you have a similar hair problem! You’re probably like me — using your fringe as something to hide behind!…

    And it’s not so much the makin’ babies that’s fun, but the endless amounts of practise. 😉

    I honestly don’t know what’s worse, hair metal or grunge. At least you can laugh at hair metal; grunge is just emo in flannel. And I hate NiN, but as a producer or musician (not as a vocalist), Trent’s got some chops, admittedly.

    You never know; there might be some filling of big-haired girls! I mean, filling stadiums: there’s still a negligible market for hair metallions. After all, Harpo’s and I-Rock are still in business, right? Plus, there’s always Macomb county.
