"It's innocence lost."

Through no one fault, really, I had to go without one of my meds last night. Which meant very little sleep. And this morning I'm already in mild withdrawal, all that flue-like wonderfulness. And yet, even though I only slept for four (restless) hours, I'm more awake, more alert, than I've been in months. It's truly shocking and deeply disturbing how stupid Seroquel makes me. I actually use my brain for work, even if my brain doesn't exactly work so well, so this sort of matters.


Another reason I'm so fond of Sons of Anarchy is that the series has, at one point or another, use five principal actors from my much beloved and much lamented Deadwood (2004-2006). I'm at the beginning of Season Six, and so far we have twelve actors shared between the two (Deadwood characters in parentheses):

Major Cast:
01. Dayton Callie as Wayne Unser (Charlie Udder)
02. Robin Weigert as Alley Lowen ("Calamity Jane" Cannary)
03. Paula Malcomson as Maureen Ashby (Trixie)
04. Ray McKinnon as Lincoln Potter (Reverend H.W. Smith)
05. Kim Dickens as Colette Jane (Joanie Stubbs)
06. Titus Welliver as Jimmy O'Phelan (Silas Adams)
07. Julie Ariola as Mary Winston (Countess)
08. Dan Hildebrand as Sean Casey (Shaughnessy/Tom Driscoll)
Minor Roles:
09. Keone Young as Bohai Lin (Wu)
10. Cleo King as Neeta (Aunt Lou Marchbanks)
11. Kevin P. Kearns as Luke (Pasco, as Kevin Kearns)
12. Tim De Zarn as Nate Meineke (Townsman/Townsman who pays crier)

And I have a feeling I've missed some of them. I'm guessing Sutter is a Deadwood fan.

Yesterday, I wrote lengthy character descriptions for Joëlle Jones. And I tried to begin Part 2 of The Good, the Bad, and the Bird. But all I managed was the title page and typing "Page 1 ( panels), Panel 1" on ms. pg. 2. It would be very, very good if I could finish this script by the end of the fucking month. I need to get paid.

Speaking of, please look at the eBay auctions. Thank you.

The clouds and wind are back today.

Last night I finished both Todd Balf's The Darkest Jungle: The True Story of the Darién Expedition and America's Ill-Fated Race to Connect the Seas and my re-read of The Heart of Darkness. I also started Candice Millard's Theodore Roosevelt's Darkest Journey: The River of Doubt. Connections between the three should be obvious. I also played a lot of The Secret World, leveling as my new Illuminati character, India Onnalee Shore. She made it to Egypt, thanks to Spooky helping me as her adorable, punky Illuminati girl, Agelaius.

This morning, I dreamt I was on a bridge above a lake, Kathryn and I. I looked up at the sky, and the Milky Way was more brilliant than ever I have seen it, stretched from horizon to horizon. And in the sky, between the stars, there where black craters. I told Kathryn to look, that the Milky Way was so bright, and she said, "Yes, but I can't hear the ocean."

I need to lie down, but that's what I won't be doing.

A Bit Strung Out,
Aunt Beast
