Ilyka gets a sex-change: Reminds me of a Chuck Palahunik novel
I'm going to spare the tongue bath here; everybody who reads these stupid pages knows I think Ilyka is the Cat's Ass, as my grandmother used to say. All I can say is that if Ilyka finds herself a strapon and goes after the web from the other end of things (there's a visual for you), I better be getting a friggin' email. I don't think it'll work, if she actually does it, as Hubris pointed out, I think I'd probably recognize her writing from a mile away, as would alot of people. That's somewhat of a backhand compliment, but a compliment it is.

I had a whole long post here, but it went away. Instead, what it boils down to is a very smart thing some old guy told me one time: illigitimi non carborundum. Don't let the bastards bring you down. I've never been the subject of sexual discrimination, so I don't pretend to know, but I hope that some stupid remarks won't force a good writer to quit. There's alot more people saying complementary things than people saying discriminatory things; and even if I'm wrong on that, then that's all the more reason not to quit.


howdy, thanks for stopping by. what you're looking at is the intermittent ramblings of an iraqi vet, college student, goth-poseur, comic book reading, cheesy horror loving, punk listening, right-leaning, tech-obsessed, poorly typing, proudly self-proclaimed geek. occasionally, probably due to these odd combinations, i like to think i have some interesting things to say; this is where they wind up.

"I think we ought to read only the kind of books that wound and stab us...We need the books that affect us deeply, like the death of someone we loved more than ourselves, like being banished into forests far from everyone, like a suicide. A book must be the axe for the frozen sea inside of us.
