Meanwhile...

I just wanted to repost something from docbrite's LJ, which I probably should have posted about days ago, as I first got wind of the trouble Bad Moon Books was giving Subterranean Press sometime last week. Poppy writes:

"I see where the eBay seller 'badmoonbooks' has launched a vendetta against Subterranean Press, railing against them in his auctions of Subterranean books for being 'greedy bastards' (yes, he's calling them names even as he makes money off of them) and urging a boycott of them in his non-Subterranean auctions. I haven't dealt with Roy of Bad Moon Books for several years and don't know what his beef is, but I do know that Subterranean Press has always treated me and its customers with the utmost professionalism and respect. By contrast, using eBay as a bully pulpit to advertise a feud is incredibly unprofessional, and Roy apparently doesn't see a problem with hurting individual Subterranean authors who've done him no wrong in his mania to hurt a publisher. For my part, I hope none of you will patronize badmoonbooks' auctions or store, as someone capable of this kind of unprofessionalism is not likely to treat your order very professionally either."

So, yeah. What Poppy said.

Okay. Now, cue Movie-Trailer Guy voice: In a world gone mad, roving bands of wayward transvestite brigands are having their way with New Orleans. . [cut voiceover] You already know this is President Asshole's fault, right?

Today was the two-week anniversary of Sophie's death. The house is a strange, quiet place in her absence.

I thought the badmoonbooks auctions were poor ideas too. Fortunately, by using "bastards" in his auction description, the seller violates the no profanity rule so hordes of annoyed people can click the "report this item" on every one of his listings from the 21st to the 25th ( the ones that mention SubPress) and theoretically ebay will remove them. I posted a "how-to" over in the prime_liquor community.

If Bill is irked about it since he's the target, he can likely get an ebay Live Help person online and have them pulled quicker.

Pets do leave a terrible hole when they go... there seems to be no cure for it.

Never heard of Bad Moon Books, nor, now, will I ever. Bill from SubPress is a great cat, and I *love* his products and service.

BTW, Ms. C: I just picked up some horror anthology with your tale "Le Peau Verte" in it. DAMN fine tale. I finished it over a nice glass of Montmartre and now I think it needs a theme song....

Admittedly, I'm a true sucker for body painting in general, and green women in particular.

There are a couple of these floating 'round. One company makes resin kits of famous guns-- including Mal's pistol from Firefly. However, this model with the moving parts is a lot more fun to wrap one's broken fingers around.

Forgive me if this topic has been bruited before. I seem to recall Coyle pretty much figured out which guns the original propmakers used, got the guns or parts of them and went to work.

That article is priceless, I love the names of the employees, Ogle and Bonga. Seriously, some of those lines are priceless, I wish the Murder City Devils were still around just so they could name an album "Cheap Wigs and Masculine Legs". Best of the bunch was, "...and there’s little Eric from next door on the sidewalk with a bunch of stuff he managed to grab from one of the guys..." I would fucking kill to hear either John Waters or Vincent Price saying that line.

Metaquoted, Friended.

(If after looking at my journal you wish to reciprocate the latter, cool. If not, I understand, no problem.)
