raining in my heart.

Totally raining in my heart. Also guys that sounds like a beautiful day.

surm, Saturday, 26 January 2019 16:13 (seven months ago) link

It is very frozen where I am recently and it's been a pleasure to take the dog for a walk out on the ice, watching her scrabble around like she's got wheels-for-paws.

Today I am starting on a score for a documentary about climate change

flamboyant goon tie included, Saturday, 26 January 2019 17:02 (seven months ago) link

Hi gays!

Freezing here too—there have been three days in the last week where I deemed it unsafe to take the dogs for a walk. The one is really pissed at me and has been sulking around the house like she’’s suffering from melancholia.

Currently reading some Butler and Sedgwick in order to flesh out my in-progress dissertation chapter on queering the school story. Fun! (No, really.)

Love the winter so much
Everyone seems to have such a terrific day ahead, digging the creative vibes
I aim to get started on a new ambient project this weekend, trying to learn a new program though which is a pain and a half

surm, Saturday, 26 January 2019 17:24 (seven months ago) link

i'm at work. my shoulders are tired and sore. i need to dig out some good stuff from the collection of a "ufologist" today. going to be not-frozen but overrun by book people next week in pasadena at a book fair.

macropuente (map), Saturday, 26 January 2019 17:38 (seven months ago) link

that sounded grumpier than i meant it to. rooting for yalls creative momentum.

macropuente (map), Saturday, 26 January 2019 18:55 (seven months ago) link

:-) wtf is a ufologist? O u mean like ufos?

surm, Saturday, 26 January 2019 20:31 (seven months ago) link

yes, many books last for decades or longer.

An extremely nutty gay acquaintance messaged me this week that he had dinner in a NY coffee shop in the '70s with Douglas Sirk and Rainer Werner Fassbinder. He said RWF smelled bad.

a Mets fan who gave up on everything in the mid '80s (Dr Morbius), Sunday, 27 January 2019 00:04 (seven months ago) link

you're surprised

Your sweetie-pie-coo-coo I love ya (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Sunday, 27 January 2019 00:05 (seven months ago) link

between movies, plays, writing, and venereal disease, you think he bought Speed Stick?

Your sweetie-pie-coo-coo I love ya (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Sunday, 27 January 2019 00:06 (seven months ago) link

I was not surprised, but took it as proof that he wasn't fantasizing.

I just watched the first thirteen minutes of "Before Sunrise" (never seen it or the sequels) and why are all his films like this
Every one of his movies is an endless conversation I would excuse myself from irl

not ALL of them, just those Befores and a couple others.

The homoerotic college baseball movie is different.

Good morning! I am waking up with Enya this morning. I have a pretty crazy thing to say: at this stage of my life, I enjoy Enya more than I do Kate Bush. !!!

Hi Eric!!! I hope all is well in your world.

surm, Sunday, 27 January 2019 16:12 (seven months ago) link

Update, essay finished. Bought myself a completely unrelated book to celebrate.

plax (ico), Sunday, 27 January 2019 17:53 (seven months ago) link

surm, Sunday, 27 January 2019 18:18 (seven months ago) link

I'm also in the library!

this hangover is not doing me any favors!

surm, Sunday, 27 January 2019 18:21 (seven months ago) link

lol, i bought a book by susan howe about chris marker. the essay was only okay but I hit send because i couldn't stick it any longer. I should mention that the library I was writing in, the SOAS library, is possibly the best library in London to work in:

Lauren Berlant is a talking head in the doc I am scoring and her interviews are so fascinating that I took a break to read some snippets of "Cruel Optimism"

flamboyant goon tie included, Sunday, 27 January 2019 21:48 (seven months ago) link

Berlant is cool; I’m pretty sure I read a chapter of Cruel Optimism for a class once. Her (older) essay on the Lisa goes to Washington episode of The Simpsons is great.

I'm like ready to "get out there again" after a winter's worth of not being out there. I feel like Diane Keaton in Something's Gotta Give.

surm, Tuesday, 29 January 2019 06:04 (seven months ago) link

omg of all the D Keaton films I... forgot almost immediately

life updates:

I have been working IT at a university for the past 3 years
I am dating someone in Boston who is basically a made-up queercore Wuvable Oaf fantasy come to life
I'm gay, still

vision joanna newsom (Stevie D(eux)), Tuesday, 29 January 2019 16:19 (seven months ago) link

surm I still think about you on a fairly regular basis, like something every couple of months reminds me of your unbridled effervescence and joie de vivre

vision joanna newsom (Stevie D(eux)), Tuesday, 29 January 2019 16:19 (seven months ago) link

also plax I am considering visiting London in the next year if you still live there?

vision joanna newsom (Stevie D(eux)), Tuesday, 29 January 2019 16:20 (seven months ago) link

My boyf and I have been dating for 8 months or so and I still cannot believe how hot and smart and cool he is and that someone as awesome as him also finds me hot and awesome??? It's like two people who feel out of each others leagues. He has an encyclopedic knowledge of house and disco, a huge Gengoroh Tagame tattoo on his thigh, 4 cats, and a position as executive director of Boston's lgbt film festival, who IS this person???

vision joanna newsom (Stevie D(eux)), Tuesday, 29 January 2019 16:25 (seven months ago) link

I have no idea what this reference is, but I want you to explain it to me in person.

Just checking in to say I've had really hot passionate sex with two French daddies while on holiday and I could get used to this French kissing business. Hi y'all! Also table I really enjoyed reading your update and have missed you on here. Quite a wild and adventurous life you lead and it makes me kind of envious except for the run ins with crazies and morans

That sounds interesting for sure doc.

Always feel like I should be tough and shit on Father's Day. In truth it kinda blows.

I just had this guy over. We had fun. Then he started talking about music because he noticed my portrait of Britney (Girl With A Grey Hoodie). He then proceeded to give me three fascinating observations. He was like, I appreciate Britney but she's not a good singer, she's not a good dancer, and I hate Mariah Carey. I was like, hi! Please stop talking because I have 3 things to say. 1) Britney Spears is a great vocalist. 2) Britney Spears is a wonderful dancer. And 3) Mariah Carey is my favorite artist of all time. And then I asked him to leave. 💙💚💛🧡💜🖤

I posted in the obituary thread, but my mentor and friend and queer icon Kevin Killian passed away on this weekend. through him i met Dennis Cooper, John Waters, Eileen Myles, George Kuchar, and a host of other queer luminaries. i'll miss him a lot.

i think my friend Jeremy is coming over today since i have the house to myself. and tonight i'm going out to give Ryan the house to himself so he can entertain. definitely not in Kansas anymore lol.

I did well on the test (I think) but no one from the actual university press was available that day after the HR person. So I'm waiting for a second call.

I do chatrooms at my gig job, but I clearly don't give a shit.
