The Nona Tapes is a mockumentary by Alice in Chains. It is no longer for sale so it’s considered a rarity. There’s parts of it all over youtube in case you want to watch it. According to Jerry, it was Layne who came up with the idea of making it happen.
The context follows aspiring journalist Nona Weisbaum (which is played by Jerry Cantrell) on her quest to find some “Seattle rock stars” for a breakthrough story. Throughout the video, Weisbaum scours the streets of Seattle and eventually finds & interviews the members of Alice in Chains (besides Jerry Cantrell’s because of obvious reasons). Entwined between Nona’s segments are interviews revealing the lives of the band members, and interview of footage regarding the self-titled album.
The video is really odd/strange but still funny. Nona approaches with Sean Kinney, whom in his spare time spends it working as a clown, Mike Inez, saying that he attends a Hot-Dogs stand called “Hot Dogs” and Layne Staley who ends up smoking on a pile of garbage bags and drinking juice. Everything completely ironic.
With all of this; it shows a little not so known for everyone. Their sense bizarre and acid sense of humor.
It also includes the videoclip for “Grind” and and outtake footage overdubbed with “Heaven Beside You”
greek mythology aesthetic: moirai - parcas - the sisters of fate
Clotho (/ˈkloʊθoʊ/, Greek Κλωθώ [klɔːˈtʰɔː] – “spinner”) spun the thread of life from her Distaff onto her Spindle. Her Roman equivalent was Nona, (the ‘Ninth’), who was originally a goddess called upon in the ninth month of pregnancy.
Lachesis (/ˈlækɨsɪs/, Greek Λάχεσις [ˈlakʰesis] – “allotter” or drawer of lots) measured the thread of life allotted to each person with her measuring rod. Her Roman equivalent was Decima (the 'Tenth’).
Atropos (/ˈætrəpɒs/, Greek Ἄτροπος [ˈatropos] – “inexorable” or “inevitable”, literally “unturning”,sometimes called Aisa) was the cutter of the thread of life. She chose the manner of each person’s death; and when their time was come, she cut their life-thread with “her abhorred shears
Hello, everyone. I don’t do these sort of things very often, but I thought I might want to bring one or two things to your attention.
1. My original novel.
I have been writing an original novel with my friends/writing partners Matty and Nona for the past few weeks now, about an adorable lesbian romance between two girls named Cass and Anne. That novel will be available to buy from Amazon and Gumroad within a month or a couple of weeks, depending on how the editing with Nona goes. I hope you enjoy it and buy it as it will mean a great deal to me and that money will help to support me for the coming future. What about my fanfics, you’re probably wondering? Well that leads me to my second point.
2. Getting back to fanfiction
So with this original novel finally coming out, I think me and Matty and Nona are ready to get back to writing fanfics. But recently, I’ve been feeling down about my writing. Not the actual writing itself… well maybe a little bit, but mainly because of the feedback and reception. Frankly, I never used to feel the common writers depression of not getting enough comments and reviews, because I was usually able to motivate myself, but if I’m honest, recently I’ve started to feel that depression. I’m not going to force anyone to comment or review at gunpoint or anything like that, after all if you don’t leave a comment or such, that’s fine, it’s your choice, but comments and reviews really help me out, like most of the time, they make my day when I receive a really nice and kind comment.
So please, if you like any of the fics that are available at my fanfic accounts, on AO3 and Fanfic.net
Leave a comment, and a fav or kudos or whatever you do on those sites and if you don’t know what to do or know what to say, just share it on whatever social media thing you want. The more views and reviews and such, the happier I am and the happier I am, the more inspired I am to write
Anyway, thank you all for listening what I have to say and I hope to see your reviews and comments. See you soon!
