Am feeling... petulant, I guess. I seem to be pretty good at sitting down in front of my computer and going, "Hey! I really suck!"

And nothing seems to prompt it. Not thinking about being worthless or worrying about the future or worrying about money or self-hatred... none of those thoughts. Just a sort of generalized depression. Everything does not suck, but I am nonetheless unhappy.

Applied to run a Herbert/Dan fanlisting, to operate in conjunction with a Re-Animator slash site. Have a pretty good handle on what I want to do with the layout... my only stumper is that, if I align the main content left, I should have a chunk of space going unused on the right. I was thinking about putting in a sidebar, but I'm not sure what sort of content I could stick there... more links? A picture? A set of randomized pictures? Fanlisting affiliates? Features? Or just scrap the sidebar idea? I am torn.

Suggestions welcome. I'ma go do something else now, I suppose.

ETA: Also for text on the splash page: "Herbert West has a very good head on his shoulders... and another one between his legs." Too dirty? Too stupid? Too confusing? The name of the site is going to be Mad Scientists Give Good Head (don't blame me; ghostgecko thought it up, and I'm just stealing). So am I going overboard with the 'head' thing? Again, suggestions welcome.

You asked for suggestions, and even though I don't really know you (no, you don't have a stalker--unless you want one *g*--I'm just cruising for anything Re-Animator right now), I think the Mad Scientists Give Good Head title and the twist with the Re-Animator tagline are both brilliant!

Also, you don't mind if I haunt a bit more, do you? I'm interesting in joining your fanlisting when it's up and running, and then living on your Re-animator slash website :) I can't help it... it's just too tempting and there isn't enough around.

As for your "bleh" state... I know the feeling. I know it doesn't mean much coming from a stranger, but I understand the confusion of having it pop up when there doesn't seem to be a reason for it. Unfortunately (for the the both of us) I have no worldly advice to make it better*, but I do hope you feel better with time. You seem really nice. Don't let The Man get ya down :)

*Hey, that's wrong: there's always medication.

Ah, thank you so much for your input! :D I'm glad you like the twist on the tagline, because I've been deliberating over how confusing it would be... and it's between that and "You haven't been loved fully until you've made love with the dead" which is in the novelization. Well, I'll use both of them, but I like the tagline parody better, so yay. :D

As for the fanlisting, oh. Haha, I just checked the site and I guess I am allowed to make it; I hadn't gotten an email from them so I didn't know for sure. But now I do! So all seems to be well.

Also, if you have any content (art, fanfic, icons, graphics, uh... anything happy like that) for the fanlisting or the main site, feel free to pass that along. Not that I'm trying to wrangle anything out of you. (Yes, yes I am, gimme all you got!)

And thank you for the sentiment... yes, blehness. But I shall continue to do battle against The Man as best I can. :D Thanks again. And, please, haunt all you want.

"You haven't been loved fully until you've made love with the dead" which is in the novelization.

Gotta ask: where'd you get the novelization? I've heard there's blatant slashiness in it. Anyway, I like that line too, but honestly not as much as the other one. But it's still fun :] I just have a special place in my head for that tagline.

I've made a dozen or so Re-Animator icons, and I used to manipulate pictures a lot. I'd love to make some more, so when I get the time (whenever I get a break from school), I'll make some and send'em your way. Wouldn't be a hassle to me. I'm not a big writer, more a reader, and I'm especially 'eep'ed by Re-Animator fic because I don't think I could get West's voice down. And if you can't do that, what's the point?

Thanks for adding me to your friends list. Now haunting you is like all convenient-like :)
