"The black river, your city lights shine."

The day out there is, I suppose, the sort of day one calls beautiful, sunny day. But there's the sky to be reckoned with. And it isn't warm. The sun would only have me think that it is.

Yesterday I think I finally found my way over the wall and into the plot of Cherry Bomb. I wrote 1,502 words on the first chapter.

There isn't much else to be said about yesterday, but that ought be enough.

In case I haven't mentioned it here, and you don't follow me on Facebook or Twitter, I will be reading, along with Michael Cisco, at KGB Bar in Manhattan on October 16th. At 7 p.m., I think. And no, I have no idea what I'll read.

Latest childish and utterly cringe-worthy internet slang: "selfies." Use this if you want to remove any doubt you're a simpering idiot.

Last night Kathryn and I watched all six episodes of Hit & Miss (~4.5 hours), a 2012 British mini-series about a transsexual contract killer who discovers she has an eleven-year-old son. Directed by Paul Abbott, it stars Chloë Sevigny, and...wow. It's brilliant. Sevigny brings a vulnerable, brutal authenticity to her role that makes the series both hard to watch and impossible to look away from. See it, if you can. It's currently streaming on Netflix.

And I have to write.

Someone Please Cut the Lights,
Aunt Beast

I've had Hit & Miss in my queue for quite a while; I'm glad to hear positive feedback. I'll move it up in the line.

Are you tired of reading 7/7/7 ? If so, something from Ape's Wife if you want to read something new ?

At any rate, I'll be at KGB that night! Hopefully you can chat for a bit and take a pic with me =]

I really have't thought about it yet. Often I decide a few hours before or even right there on the spot.

Though I guess it's an apt term considering what they're describing tend to be childish and cringe-worthy.

That does sound really good. I love Cloe Sevigny but I haven't seen her in anything good since My Son My Son What Have Ye Done?

True.

See it. Now.

Okay. I need a new show to watch since I just finished The Thick of It anyway. Britain sure seems to make good television.

Indeed they do.

Okay. Funny.

I'd never even heard it until about two weeks ago. But then I do lead a sheltered existence (thank fuck).

That's the plague of the internet. Instant crap. I swear I'm going to try to plant the most bullshit "word" I can think off.

Just added Hit & Miss to my list. It sounds interesting and Chloë Sevigny is a bonus.

Wow, indeed. Finally checked this out. Totally loved it. Don't usually watch much of anything, so wouldn't have found this without your recommendation. Thank you!
