A random collection of music-related bad puns and jokes, mainly grabbed from a FB friend who likes to post bad jokes and make us all wonder when we're getting a 'groan' button to press!!

These jokes cover a wide range of musical tastes, over the decades, and so apologies if you don't get all of them!

Lots of groans ahead )

 With only 12 days until The Last Tycoon season 1 is available for streaming at Amazon Video, I needed a themed header, so here it is. ** points at header @ DW **

I need to make some TLT icons... Hmmm.

Another thing I've meant to create for quite some time is a TLT animated mood theme for DW/LJ. Or a Matt Bomer one. If only I'd find the time  somewhere to make any of them...

Someone told me awhile back how to alter your browser so that you can copy/paste fics into Word, but I've forgotten! If anyone knows, could you remind me please? I don't often go to for fic these days, but have found one I'd like to read offline (it's big so I can't read in one go, the person hasn't split it into chapters, and it's much easier to mark a Word document with 'start here' to remind you where you're up to if you need to read it over a period of days).

I use Firefox if that helps. Thanks in advance!

EDIT: Thanks to [personal profile] starwatcher for the answer!! :D

Going on from yesterday's post, I also decided that a good burr up the bustle would be to join a few low-pressure icons comms; so you'll be getting the odd little collection swept and and posted here every so often.

Like these... just a few of Arthur of the Britons, Blakes 7, Magnificent 7, Merlin, Stargate Atlantis, Stargate SG1, The Sentinel and White Collar.

And more... )

Icons On the Subject of... Thinking

Because I haven't done many this year, and I just thought I would like to... I tend to use my own thinky icons rather a lot, which gave me the idea.

It's a mixture of fannish and nonfannish, the former for {deep breath} Arthur of the Britons, Blakes 7, Dr Who, Jeeves and Wooster, Magnificent 7, Merlin, Primeval, Stargate SG-1, Stargate Atlantis, The Sentinel and White Collar, plus one each for The Avengers, Chalet School, Man from Uncle and Muppet Show, a few film ones, some cartoons and some just... because I liked the pictures :)

As always, take if you want, text can be added (or probably changed) if you want, or you can just (I hope) enjoy the pretties...

Genius Loci and Other Tales by Clark Ashton Smith (1974)

So okay, I'm a hoarder.

I bought my first four Clark Ashton Smith paperbacks in my teens, from a small, shabby secondhand book shop (now, sadly, long gone), entranced by the wonderful wonderful cover art by Bruce Pennington that wrapped around to the back (see the scanned copies of all four below). I now have a full hardback collection, and pretty much all of my favourites are also available online. Buuuuuutttt........ I'm a hoarder, so the Panther paperbacks are still around here, shabbier but much loved.

Ashton Smith is very much associated with Lovecraft, personally I find him far more readable. Lovecraft does have the celebrated mythos and the world-building, but I love Ashton Smith's actual writing, arcane, ornate and yes, eldritch (and yes, I first found that word in one of his :) Probably not a style that meets current styles, but the creativity, sheer skill at visual imagery and gift for chilling ideas and dreamlike nightmare fuel, and a sly sense of humour that peeks through are wonderful, and the delicately archaic style works a treat for me. The title story also introduced me to the expression genius loci, as the same time giving it a lovely sinister gloss that I've never lost.
This is such a varied collection, some SF (very old-fashioned but with added horror that really sticks and lifts it), some sword-and-sorceryish fantasy (with added horror) and some straight out horror; some set in his own little universes (Hyperborea, futuristic Zothique, his own medieval ghost-ridden French province of Averoigne), some set loosely in his own time. Plus - just for fun - one delicate little fantasy story set in a tapestry. While my absolute favourite CAS is in another volume, this has several that come close :)
