All hail Plankton!

Just so you know, in case my gayness was in any way a subject of contention, in case my status as queer was ever in doubt, in case you somehow missed the fact that Spooky is my girlfriend, last night I watched The Spongebob Squarepants Movie. And now I'm admitting it. In public. So there. For the most part, fundamentalist Xtian crusaders might well be ass-widgets, but, in my own humble, queer opinion, this is one damned gay movie.

And I'm not just talking about those singing pirates...

Yesterday, I wrote 1,945 words in two hours, almost repeating Thursday's Herculean feat. And we have the third vignette for Frog Toes and Tentacles. Now that I feel I have a firm beginning on that book, I'll be switching back to Daughter of Hounds on Monday. Hopefully, the transition will come off without a hitch. I'd try to get through a couple more of the erotic vignettes, but I think I need to clear my palate and all. As I've long suspected, writing about sex must be done always with one eye on the danger of repetition. Well, I mean unless you're aiming for Penthouse Forum, and I'm not. Arkham Forum, maybe. Also, I'm discovering that I'm putting in quite a bit more story than I'd expected to, than I said I would. I can't write the literary equivalent of a painting or a photograph, as I'd wished. Indeed, no such thing may exist. Which is sort of sad.

Today, however, I have set aside as a grooming day. I need a bath. I need to wash my hair. Etc. & etc.

For the moment, I remain as loyal to Apple as ever, but I still must admit to being disturbed and disappointed by the following Forbe's article — "Is Apple the new Microsoft?". I've been loyal to Apple since 1986, when I first sat down at an SE II and discovered how straightforward computing could be. And it's probably somewhat naive of me to express any surprise or disappointment over a thing like this. We live in an America where the Bill of Rights is being dismantled in the service of corporate politics and nationalism, and Apple is as surely a corporation as any other.

Okay. Mr. Egg Timer says that's quite enough for today. Please have a look at the eBay auctions

In court filings the company argued that the Web sites were not protected by free speech because they are not legitimate members of the press.

The mind boggles.

*gasp* OMG! You're gay? That's it, I'm never reading your books again. I don't want to catch your queerness!

Oh, hell. It happens all time. I get disoriented if a month or two goes by without someone being an ass about it.

Singing pirates indeed. Hah! I was just listening to Kate Bush's "The Red Shoes" and reading "Tears Seven Times Salt" and I suddenly got this jolt of CRK-love running up and down my spinal column.

Do you have any specific release date for To Charles Fort yet?

No specific date. Not yet. We've been saying late spring/early summer 2005. I'd lean towards early summer, at this point.

Yeh, but is the movie any good? I usually avoid cartoons. This wasn't done by Disney tho, was it? (totally ignorant on so many levels)

It was Nickelodeon, not The Mouse. Was it good? It was funny. Stupid, baffling, bizarre, and funny.

It's too bad they're becoming just another Big Machine. I understand the frustration and anger at the leaks, but instead of attacking the First Amendment they should be looking in their own backyard and finding the source through other means (planting bogus info, etc.). Prosecute the idiot who is violating their NDA. The websites are just doing their job - and apparently quite well.

I'm disappointed too... for this and other reasons with Apple. They've lost their edginess.

Well, that makes sense to me, but appparently not to legal at Apple.

Personally, I blame the iPod and iTunes (neither of which I have used, tho' I have lusted mightly after the former). Suddenly Apple's a lot more visible, which should be a good thing, only they're acting like, Okay, now we're not quite as underdoggy as we once were, so we get to be assholes, too.
