Um. Righty-o...  
For the record, I did not mean for my previous post to undermine the Jack+Sally. No, not one bit. As one of the few canon, heterosexual pairs I enjoy, they must be placed highhighhigh on a cobwebbed pedestal for their magnificance. But you have to admit that it's definitely... interesting... trying to imagine how a ragdoll and a skeleton would copulate. A skeleton and burlap sack full of bugs just propels it into that "no, I don't want to know" sector of romantic conquest.

And yet you can't look away...

Then... I have a lovely (read: terribly upsetting and gross) idea for a Willard fic, the title of which seems to be "Sane Enough to Read My Suicide Note." I'm pretty sure it crosses over into the realm of gratuitous authorial masturbation (you know... the way Anne Rice did?) and... yeah. I guess that would be bad. That, and I still haven't finished "Terrier," mostly because it has absolutely no plot whatsoever. ("And I think it needs a verb to be a sentence...")

Then some part of me started developing what appears to be a Hand Puppet Theatre version of Re-Animator. The only problem is that I'm not really witty or interesting to a large percentage of the population. My "jokes" tend to be either obtusely intellectual or just plain not funny.

Happily, I think most of the world agrees that Herbert West would make a kick-ass puppet.

As for everything else in life, I am holding my hands over my ears and singing "Lalalalala!"

You know, you're about the only person who can make me say nice things about fan-fiction.

I'm starting to think I should do something about seeing this Re-Animator thing y'all are going on about . . .

I highly recommend it, but only if silly, gory horror movies don't make you go "ick." Too much.

If Willard is an intellectual's horror movie (loosely speaking), then Re-Animator is a stand-up comedian's horror movie.

Heh. If I can stomach Evil Dead and Cabin Fever, I think I can handle anything from the silly/gory department. I know we carry the sequel, because I remember making fun of the cover with my manager when it came in a couple months ago, but I hate to start with a sequel . . . Netflix, here I come!
