17:13 < mdxi> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Henry_Darger
17:20 < solios> dammit I’m missing Metal Church at the Rex
17:20 < solios> wait, I’m ALSO missing South Side on a Friday night.
17:20 < solios> :D!
17:21 < mdxi> ‘In 1968, Darger became interested in tracing some of his frustrations back to his childhood and began writing The History of My Life. Spanning eight volumes, the book only spends 206 pages detailing Darger’s early life before veering off into 4,672 pages of fiction about a huge twister called “Sweetie Pie”, probably based on memories of a tornado he had witnessed in 1908.’
17:21 < solios> O.o
17:22 < mdxi> this dude makes robert jordan and GRRM look like chumps
17:22 < mdxi> that’s his SHORTEST book
17:22 < solios> jebus
17:26 < xeno> That’s solios in 20 years :P
17:27 * xeno has always thought ATC was solios’s Vivian Girls
17:27 < solios> ?
17:27 < xeno> (henry darger)++
17:27 < xeno> solios: you’re Henry Darger
17:27 < xeno> < solios> No YOU’RE henry darger AND SO’S YOUR MOM
17:28 < solios> heh
17:28 < solios> if anything ATC has a bit more in common with VALIS
17:28 < solios> though it’s taken so [expletive] long to get anywhere with it that most of the crazy has oozed out. Which is good for the plot but cuts down the page count considerably.
17:29 < ejp> when you’re arguing which flavor of obsessed crazy you have, it might be time to take a step back

Marketing Strategy

19:44 < dusya> I am saying down the line
19:44 < dusya> Spread that shit like herpies.
19:44 < dusya> Herpes
19:44 < dusya> I combined herpes and harpies there.
19:44 < dusya> You are welcome.

Eight years on 2.

16:08 <xeno> Heinlein’s rules for getting published: 1. Write it. 2. Finish it. 3. Send it out. 4. Keep sending it out until someone sends you a check.
16:09 * xeno errors out on 2
16:09 <xeno> and most of the time, 1

Bedtime Stories

01:07 < dasunt> solios: Tell me a story where everything turns out right in the end.
01:07 < dasunt> And I’m happy.
01:07 < dasunt> And I don’t have to go to work in 5 hours.
01:08 < solios> dasunt: well…. 50,000 years ago, 7 entities destroyed the entire human race.
01:08 < solios> or rather, they tried to.
01:08 < solios> they missed.
01:08 < solios> then, plot happens!
01:08 < dasunt> Damnit!


11:17 <solios_> oy.
11:17 <xeno> awesome

11:18 <solios_> doesn’t have to be now-now.
11:18 <solios_> but the pages are as done as they’re going to be until, oh… you know. :P
11:18 <xeno> has it occurred to you if you’d stop rerererererererererewriting the goddamned thing, i’d only have to typornograph *once*

11:19 <xeno> yeah, after a brazillion pages, my eyes tend to go numb :P
11:19 <xeno> i typoed that as nump and should have left it XD
11:20 <solios_> nump++

Casting (the most recent of many)

20:31 * solios watches something with Clive Owen.
20:31 <@solios> I’ve decided that Clive Owen will voice West.*
20:31 <@aestuo> Clive Owen++
20:31 <@solios> he’d be motherfucking awesome against Christopher Walken, voicing Greymalkin.
20:32 < xeno> Peter Fonda should totally be Grij.
20:32 <@solios> @_@
20:32 <@solios> I’ve always leaned more towards Gary Oldman for live action, Alan Rickman (sp?) for animated.
20:32 <@ejp> na, Grij is Hugo Weaving.
20:33 < xeno> oh yeah.
20:33 <@solios> fucking nobody to ever walk the face of the earth can voice contempt like Rickman.
20:33 <@ejp> point
20:33 < xeno> very.
20:33 <@solios> for live action it’s really a question of who looks good in horns.**
20:34 <@solios> because let’s face it – as awesome as Rickman is, he’s built like Polaski. Not Grij.
20:34 <@solios> Grij is built like Wil Wheaton.***

* It was previously decided that Clive Owen is Ornix.

** Which is a great argument for animated. Really.

*** Just sayin’. I wish I had that guy’s metabolism.
