Dickwhistling cockmongers

Hey [personal profile] mirrorofsmoke , I TOTALLY want Trin's voice saying 'DICKWHISTLING COCKMONGERS' to be the sound our computer makes when it boots up now.

I dunno what the best shutdown noise would be.  Maybe you saying "vagina" a whole bunch of times.

Why 'little tin cults'?

Feb. 23rd, 2017 | 02:51 pm

Okay, so other folks have started using the ‘little tin cults’ tag, and a couple others have asked me about it, so here’s where the name comes from.

When we were in high school, we really liked a book called Pyramid Scheme, by Flint and Freer.  The plot and content of the book is irrelevant, but at one point, there’s a joke where a bunch of academics are called “little tin gods,” because they expect the military staff around them to understand their field and resulting importance.

I started using the phrase to refer to anyone who were considered big fish in a very small, rather piffling pond.  And well, cult leaders who run these fandom/plural cults are stellar examples of the type.  They very well may be the center of their followers’ universe, and have a vastly bloated sense of their own importance, but outside their tiny circles, they really are nothing.  I mean, Scientology and Sun Myung Moon have been heard of outside their circles; they have a place in pop culture.  But these little guys don’t even rank among THOSE malcontents.  Even by cult standards, they’re unimportant!

So little tin gods have little tin cults. This entry was originally posted at http://lb-lee.dreamwidth.org/815347.html.

How to Oust a Douchebag

Feb. 23rd, 2017 | 02:14 pm

In my research so far, I’ve only seen one time when a cultiple got ousted with a minimum of time and bloodshed, and it still took a flame war.  It was the Usenet newsgroup alt.books.poppy-z-brite, and they drove off Draven (who at the time was Kurt Cobain and possibly the Crow) in April of 1999.

Peeps Oreos

Feb. 23rd, 2017 | 01:22 pm

On Tuesday, Sneak discovered Peeps Oreos.  And of course, ze ate two of them, because pink + sparkles + LOTS of sugar = Sneakfood.

I think I'm STILL digesting those damn things.

Battle the Universe: The First Rule of Blackmail

Feb. 20th, 2017 | 09:47 pm
mood: accomplishedaccomplished

The First Rule of Blackmail
Series: Battle the Universe
Words: 2000
Summary: Tank lies in a hospital bed, and Lucinda and Kara plot what to do next.
Notes: This story makes reference to ‘the Gynecologist.’ You’d be best off reading at least that story, and probably ‘The Choice’, ‘One Step Ahead,’ and ‘Hamster Man’ as well. This story was prompted by [personal profile] mirrorofsmoke and [personal profile] kaylin881 , and sponsored by the Patreon crew! The scene with Zambi and T, believe it or not, was actually one of the first things we ever wrote involving Tank, so this story has been a long time coming! We hope you enjoy it.


As the All-Seeing Eye rolled off, Kara lay in the hospital bed and thought hard. Lorry was still out cold, half-sprawled on the front, and probably would be until pain and exhaustion passed; Kara certainly wasn’t going to take on the added inconvenience. She was angry enough as it was.

But this was an opportunity to prove that she’d been right all along, that she was the only person who could truly manage the group. Lorry had lacked the intelligence and creativity. TJ was a child, probably sobbing in panic and fear in back right now. The Zombie needed no explanation. And as for Lucinda…

“Well?”

Kara snarled, but that was all she could do. With Lorry down and her own strength exhausted, she was trapped at front, unable to do anything. It was difficult to even mentally see, in her position; Lucinda seemed only an ominous silhouette behind her. Kara didn’t like it.

“The moment we’re out of the hospital, Law and Justice gives us the eject,” Kara sneered. “Ungrateful insects.”

After that post where I described myself as a large hairy catfish, [personal profile] silvercat17  sent me this picture of myself as a very large and hairy catfish merman.

I am RIDICULOUSLY delighted by this.  They gave me permission to share the image, so here it is, guys, me as a very hairy catfish merman. :D

Ralph Allison and the history of the word 'multiple'

Feb. 20th, 2017 | 05:14 pm

There are PASSIONATE fights about multiplicity elsewhere online.  One relatively recent nugget of bullshit that keeps cropping up on tumblr is the idea that unless you have a diagnosis of Dissociative Identity Disorder (and/or DDNOS-1, depending on the flavor of bullshitter), you CAN NOT use the word 'multiple.' You have to come up with some completely unrelated word, otherwise you are appropriating from a Very Serious Mental Illness.

Of course, this is total nonsense, but it can really fuck with the heads of young, baby multis first venturing into selves-awareness. And by depriving them of the very words to describe their experience, douchebags keep them from attaining that awareness and community.

Rogan the Catfish

Random trivia: I’m blind in headspace.  I can see some, but I’m severely near-sighted, and can’t make out any visual detail unless something is RIGHT in front of me.

For the longest time, nobody in the system realized this, and I presumed everyone else in the system was just like me.  It only came out around 2010 or so, when someone mentioned the design of the metal in stained glass we had in the House at the time, and I was like, “wait, THERE’S METAL IN THE STAINED GLASS?”

In headspace, the impairment is pretty minimal, but it’s also non-negotiable.  As far as I can tell, vision just takes too much of my mental bandwidth; if I wear my glasses and concentrate REAL hard, I can make out a bit more, but it’s pretty much never worth it.  Since there’s a weird... I dunno, headspace sense that allows me to get a sense of mass around me, I navigate fine.  I may not be able to SEE it, but I can still tell it’s there, and that’s all that matters, really.

But it means me and Rhymers have hilarious conversations because they have a bunch of system members who’re the reverse of me.  I’m blind in a sighted vessel; they’re sighted in a blind vessel.

It also means that it kinda bugs me, reading stories about blind characters who’re always like, “I can never see the details of my love’s face in crystal clear Kodak picture!  Woe is me!” I can safely say that that has never once bothered me.  I can see them well enough with my hands.  I know their scents, and the sounds of their voices, and thanks to whatever you’d call that headspace sense, I can feel the joy in their smiles and the grief in their tears.  I feel that more than makes up for my abominable headspace vision.

So you know, in case you ever wondered how I can tell what Mac’s face looks like, it’s because I rub my face all over him and use my beard as antennae.  I’m like a large hairy catfish.
