New book: Red, Yellow, Green!

Mar. 26th, 2017 | 07:44 pm

The signing went really well!  I was really nervous, since I'd never done before, but I had a great time, made good money, and Tony (the guy who owns Million Year Picnic) wants me to do another when the weather warms up.  So yeah, on the whole, an awesome experience!

Mac is trying to persuade me to buy a gift to celebrate.  But that's hard.  I did let Mori and Biff buy me a ledger though; I took advantage of my day off (no drawing, inking, editing, or PDFing for me today, hooray!) and filled in the numbers.  I've been meaning to get a ledger for ages (until now, I've itemized my monthly income/outgo using some long list sticky notes [personal profile] silvercat17 gave me a while back) and this is a huge improvement.

...and conveniently, the ledger is the perfect size to clip the sticky notes to.  Thank you, ledger!

In other news, my other new book is now up for sale!  Say hello to Red, Yellow, Green!

Cultiples #1 now available!

Mar. 24th, 2017 | 11:25 pm

Cultiples #1 is now available!

Cover behind cutCollapse )LB has spent years discussing the good, neutral, and challenging sides of multiplicity.  Now they take on the cult leaders within their demographic, starting with Tristan Grey (legally known as Desiree Hamm).  Tristan, LB's penpal of two and a half years, is in jail for kidnapping, sexually assaulting, and branding two teenage girls, who he roped into an online roleplaying cult.  Cultiples #1 dives into his story and tactics.

The paper book is $5. The listing is up HERE.  People coming to my signing on 3/25/2017 will get it first; I can’t ship them out until Monday.

The ebook is pay what you want, as promised.  Please spread to whoever you think would be well-served, especially fellow plurals.  I’m also considering making an Issue #0 just for my posts about tactics, without using any leader in particular, but meh, maybe not.

Okay wow I’m apparently in a really nasty mood suddenly.  Time for me to do something fun!

Give me a character and I’ll write a doofy ‘I lik the bred’ poem for them. (Not in Old English.  You will cry.) This entry was originally posted at http://lb-lee.dreamwidth.org/825303.html.

Tristan Grey old news stories screencap collation

Mar. 24th, 2017 | 05:20 pm

Due to the nature of Tristan’s offenses, early newspaper articles covering his case were deleted from the Internet to protect the privacy of his victims. However, before the sexual abuse allegations came to light, enterprising newshounds at scaredmonkeys.com collated these early stories, which is the only reason I'm able to know what happened during the first month of the girls' disappearance.

As a compromise, I have chosen to insert screencaps, so my words can be fact-checked, but at the same time, I have censored them to protect the girls’ privacy. And since it turns out forum screen-caps are dreadful to read when forced into a zine intended for print (the ebook versions look fine, thankfully), I've chosen to post and transcribe these caps here.

Insurance solved!

Mar. 24th, 2017 | 02:59 pm

Well, it took a ton of calls, making an online account, and finally reaching a human being at our health insurance, but I have good news!

The letter was sent to us in error.  We aren't losing our health insurance after all.  They just sent out some bogus letters by mistake and I got one.  I guess that's the state's way of playing an April Fool's joke on me.

It's all solved!  Whew.

Revenge of the paperwork errors

Mar. 23rd, 2017 | 02:29 pm

Welp, just got a letter saying I’m losing my stupid healthcare at the end of the month.  Apparently, in the past four months, I’ve gone for being eligible to Medicaid, to INeligible.  Even though NOTHING about my circumstances have changed, far as I know.

I wouldn’t lose all healthcare, just get kicked back to Medicare alone, which doesn’t cover dental and involves $60 a month in other costs. (Yes, I know this doesn’t sound like a lot, but I live with very little financial margin for error, and am legally forbidden from widening it.)

I have a week to find out what the fuck happened and if there’s anything I can do about it.  I’m not even sure what agency to fucking call--my current health insurance?  Medicaid?  Medicare?  Social Security?

Goddammit, I was just getting used to financial security, and now it’s back to being on the edge afuckingain.

Cultiples #1 almost ready! (and free?)

Mar. 20th, 2017 | 05:05 pm

Okay guys, I finally got a working draft together of Cultiples #1, the Tristan Grey/Desiree Hamm issue.  And I'm considering putting it up for free, since I figure that this is information everyone should be able to access and use.

I'll also be selling print copies; maybe I'll do a 'pay what you want' for the ebook.  I haven't put anything up for free in years, it feels good to think about!

Arturo the Centaur Guy

Mar. 19th, 2017 | 03:31 pm

Night before last, I dreamed about exploring a gorgeous volcanic cliff seascape with a big strapping centaur named Arturo who had some extremely limited shapeshifting abilities.

I appreciate how our subconscious apparently has a much better eye for beautiful landscapes than I do.  And that in dreamland, my vision can be sharp enough to actually APPRECIATE IT.

The Secret of the Golem's Rivets

Mar. 15th, 2017 | 07:55 pm

Okay, those of you who’ve known me a while know that I really like golem legends, specifically the Golem of Prague. (I actually have a wee tiny clay golem from Prague who sits atop a compass and watches me work at my desk.  I call him Yossele.)

One thing that really bugged me, though, was that a lot of the pop culture images of the Golem of Prague (including my teeny Yossele) show cracks across his chest, held together with rivets, like so.  And I couldn’t figure out where that design quirk came from!

It’s not in any of the legends. (And I’ve read a LOT of renditions of the Golem of Prague legends, I have FOUR books with him in it.) It’s not in the 1915-1920 silent movie series. (There, the Golem looks like this.) It was driving me crazy!

Well, today I found out where the golem’s rivets come from.  It’s from a 1951 movie, totally unheard of in the states, called The Emperor’s Baker. (Well, it’s two short movies shown together, the Emperor’s Baker and the Baker’s Emperor.) It’s a freaking comedy, of all things. It’s mostly about an emperor and a baker switching places, but the golem has a minor role in it, and there, he looks like this.  The cracks, the rivets, the only vaguely humanoid shape, it’s all there!

The Emperor’s Baker was a total nonentity in the states, but it was a BIG hit in its native Czechoslovakia--where, of course, the legend originated.  That movie seems to be pretty much singlehandedly responsible for how every person in Prague envisioned the golem forever after... and of course, they were the ones making most golem memorabilia, including mine.

So yeah, this random movie I’d never heard of (but now want to see) is responsible for the golem’s design forever after!  That’s so cool!

And I’m so glad to finally know where it comes from.  Drove me crazy!
