if we're choosing bloodborne roles, I wanna be horny old Gehrman.

he crushes on Lady Maria so hard that he builds his own RealDoll... and then lends it out to people.

I, of course, am The Keeper of the Old Lords, because I get the coolest witch hat, all the edginess I could ask for, and a neat way to light cigarettes.

There's over 100 of us in this meat-suit. You'd think it runs like a ship, but it's more like a hundred and ten angry ghosts having an old-school QuakeWorld tournament, three people desperately trying to make sure the gamers don't go hungry or soil themselves, and the Facilities manager weeping in the corner as the garbage piles high.

So my car's computer shat in traffic yesterday, which is awesome for a "fly by wire" vehicle.

I will have my revenge on 2020.

She's a sweetheart, huh?

Also, Howl, in all honesty, you need to just start to make your peace with God.

You know?

By upper-decking his toilet.

I've spent the last while going through the testimonials about Warren Ellis

https://www.somanyofus.com/

They are depressing, paint a picture of a gross, needy and controlling little man who preyed on his groupies.
But it looks like he knew where to draw the line: I don't see any that suggest he either insinuated access or media contacts. He did consistently plug these women in his emails blogs etc, which is the tangential way of using his prestige to both endear and control them but its not the same as saying, I will send this on to X person, though some of these women did form contacts through this vicarious method with comic book industry people it is through them being contacted by others in the industry off their own bat after seeing the plug in warrens email, to me that's not the same.
There's a pattern of manipulation, as a form of abuse, but nothing like sexual abuse or anything, though there is consistent pesting.

He's a scumbag, but what I said previously about him never working again, there's no smoking gun like that or even a suggestion of it. In fact a lot of the testimonials are pushing for him to confront and grow because they still think he could be a good voice in the comics industry to do good.


I dont think I feel like reading anything of his for a while, and may not again, but hopefully the good these women seeks come of that. When people talk about Cancel culture, I really like these womens approach, they both want him to own what he did, confront it, grow and be a positive voice through the reach he has.
I guess that wouldnt be possible if he was a rapist or something, he didn't do anything illegal, just shitty.

The Secret is a book about the Law of Attraction, which is basically like secular witchcraft, but they don't see it that way. Think Sigilization, but instead of occult aesthetic, it's Live, Laugh, Love aesthetic. You make a dream board with pictures of beach houses and, because you visualized it, the universe will give it to you. So if you're miserable, just cheer up. Your sadness attracts negative energy, so knock it off.

Unfortunately I know too much about the Law of Attraction and its cousins (contagion, recurrence/memory, etc) for that explanation to allow me to really desperately upset people the way I need.

It's too late now, you ruined the only chance i had to greatly misunderstand something
