I'm dead...

...okay, so I'm not really dead; however, I did just have Randy snap a bunch of headshots of me pretending to be dead in order to take a chance at getting one of the pictures included in a "casualties pulled from the rubble" sequence in the upcoming film version of Jeff Vandermeer's Shriek: An Afterword. Oh, and in case you're asking "Jeff who?", then you need to pick up and read City of Saints and Madmen, an amazing literary work that is definitely making my top ten book list this year - call it a must-read recommendation.

So, would you be an interesting corpse? Do you want in on the action? If so, hit up this thread over on the Night Shade Books message boards (and while you're there, you might as well take advantage of the 40% off coupon - NSB0640) and post a picture (or try to post a picture - that part didn't work so well for me). And be interesting, after all, the dead of Ambergris would probably be more diverse than a bunch of T-shirt clad computer geeks in zombie makeup.

Good luck, have fun, and try not to bleed on the carpet.

The one I'm submitting.

you look great "dead"

Sounds good. Name the time and place, I'm pretty much open.

how about next tuesday . . . wanna meet in your neck of the woods? any nifty places over there?

Tuesday sounds good. Morning would be best for me, maybe you can come along when Maddie and I go out walking. In that case (walking distance), I'd recommend either the Bus Stop Coffee cart or Deaf Dog.

a walking tour with miss maddie and "dead ross" sounds like just the thing . . . will you be wearing the hat? :P

what time?
Jun. 8th, 2006 10:48 pm (UTC)
It's been a bit windy for the hat lately. ;)

It's Tuesday, which is one of our early mornings, so just about any time after 8:00 is fine by me.

Your icon disturbs me. ;)

In a good way I hope.

I find the guy on fire to be the oddest part of that icon... which can be found here........


along with other cool yet disturbing things.

"Disturbing" being the key point. ;)

I asked her if she wanted to, but she said that it was entirely too hot for that sort on nonsense.

Baxter is dead too.
But I've always been dead so does it really matter?

Re: Baxter is dead too.
You've also been gay and Chinese, so I guess it doesn't really matter. ;)

Re: Baxter is dead too.
People ask me if I am Chinese all the time, just because I carry a parasol. People are strange.

Re: Baxter is dead too.
Parasols are cool! Jennifer's got one (with dragons on it), but feels a tad embarassed to walk around downtown with it.

Re: Baxter is dead too.
I've got one in almost every color now (I get the silky-plastic fabric kind these days because the paper ones just fall apart after a bit of use) and I always take whichever one matches my outfit with me when I go out. Cuz the sun is bad. 8) Plus it is nice to have your own portable shade when it's hot! Also, people love to see women with parasols and it makes them smile. She should take hers out! It's fun.

Re: Baxter is dead too.
Where do you find your fabric-y ones?

Re: Baxter is dead too.
I got them all at the San Diego County Fair for five bucks each! But I think you can probably find them on-line or at any shop that sells lots of Asian gift items. Or maybe a swap meet? If I find some on-line I'll let you know! 8) They are super useful and last a long time (and even when they start to fall apart, they are easy to re-thread and stuff; just use fishing wire instead of silk thread.)
