shellfishbeaach  asked:

"The problem with you, is uh... Words lack the parameters to accurately describe how I feel about you. But maybe this will help. Every night, I have a recurring dream. It's you, sleeping in your bed. And it's me, with a pair of garden shears. And I tear that stupid ass nose right off your face. And when your dumb brother comes over, trying to get it back, 43 trucks fall out of the sky, and land EXACTLY where he's standing, killing him instantly. One day, it'll happen.."

❝ I’m sorta concerned about your dreaming habits. Awfully morbid ! Keep sleepin’, dame. ❞

DAY 3400

Jalsa, Mumbai                July 19/20,  2017                Wed/Thu 1:14 AM




Quietly and with great dignity Jaya has won the Best Parliamentarian award today and it could not have been a prouder moment for us all in the family ..  committed, participatory and with an enviable attendance record, she has proved her worth in the annals of the seat of democracy - the Indian Parliament .. !!

Work done with conviction and honesty, does not require any elaborate fanfare, beating of chests or self complimentary brandishing .. the work speaks .. and those that value it notice it ..


This a ceremony at Vigyan Bhavan, the formal theatre for all important GOI functions .. built in the 50′s in Delhi, it has been the centre of attention for many years and a venue for some great moments through the passing of years ..

I first entered its portals to be an audience at the performance of that great conductor, Herbert von Karanjan , he of great fame being the most revered conductor by some of the 20th century .. a dashing silver haired handsome personality, conducting the philharmonic orchestra in Vigyan Bhavan .. and I being a young student then in complete awe of his genius ..

There have been many formal functions that were attended by me, but some of the most important for me were the 3 National Award, Best Actor recognitions at the venue .. 3 of them were located here .. the earlier National Awards were one in Chennai, in an open air theatre facility, for ‘Saat Hindustani’, when the award was presented to me by the then Chief Minister Mr Karunanidhi ; the ‘Agneepath’ award was conducted at the auditorium of the Asian Village ..

I saw the first screening of the film ‘Gandhi’ here when Richard Attenborough had its show for a select VIP audience .. Martin Luther King’s wife was present for the screening ..

Its a pity that we do not have many more Vigyan Bhavans to celebrate important functions .. the same is true for Mumbai as well .. though I believe there are many contributions being made in this direction, and soon we shall be having some magnificent venues ..

When you visit some of the venues in the Western World you are astounded by their beauty and more importantly their respect and regard for the world of performance creativity and the arts of entertainment ..

But we shall soon I hope fulfil that desire too as we move along ..



I am in dream sequence right now .. with a foot already in bed .. prosthetics at shoot does that to you .. 

Good night ..

THE AENEID BOOK I

JUNO SERIOUSLY FUCKING HATES THE TROJANS. UNFORTUNATELY FOR OUR HERO AENEAS, HE’S A FUCKING TROJAN. AENEAS IS SAILING OFF TO FOLLOW HIS DESTINY AND SHIT, BUT JUNO WON’T STAND FOR THAT KIND OF CRAP, SO SHE CONVINCES THE WINDY GUY AEOLUS (BY PROMISING TO GET HIM LAID) TO MAKE A HUGE STORM TO FUCK SHIT UP FOR AENEAS. GOOD GUY NEPTUNE CALMS THE STORM BEFORE ANYONE IMPORTANT DIES OR ANYTHING, SO ALL IS GOOD.

AENEAS AND FRIENDS EVENTUALLY END UP ON A BEACH IN NORTH-AFRICA, AND HAVE A HUGE FUCKING BARBECUE. MEANWHILE BACK AT OLYMPUS, VENUS (AENEAS’ MILF) RUNS OFF TO HER DADDY JUPITER, CRYING ABOUT HOW EVERYTHING IS SHITTY FOR HER SON AND HOW JUNO IS BEING A BITCH. JUPITER TELLS HER TO CALM THE FUCK DOWN AND THAT AENEAS IS GOING TO GO ON TO FATHER A LINE OF FUCKERS WHO EVENTUALLY FOUND ROME WHICH IS GOING TO HAVE THE GREATEST FUCKING EMPIRE BLAH BLAH ROME IS FUCKING AWESOME BLAH BLAH BLAH. 

VENUS THEN GOES DOWN TO VISIT AENEAS, DRESSED SOMEWHAT INAPPROPRIATELY FOR VISITING HER SON AS A SEXY HUNTING LADY. SHE GIVES HIM SOME FUCKING USEFUL TOURIST INFORMATION ABOUT THE LAND HE’S IN THEN FUCKS OFF. BASICALLY AENEAS IS A COMPLETE MUMMY’S BOY AND THERE’S NOTHING THAT WILL PERSUADE US OTHERWISE.

AENEAS GOES TO CARTHAGE (WHICH IS KIND OF A CONSTRUCTION SITE RIGHT NOW SO ALL THESE TROJANS JUST GET IN THE WAY), HE CRIES AT SOME PAINTINGS FOR A BIT (HE’S SENSITIVE, FUCK OFF) THEN MEETS DIDO. DIDO IS A CRAZY STALKER LADY WHO KNOWS EVERYTHING ABOUT AENEAS BEFORE SHE’S EVEN MET HIM. THIS IS FUCKING CREEPY. 

THEN VENUS DECIDES TO MAKE THINGS MORE FUN BY HAVING DIDO FALL COMPLETELY IN LOVE WITH AENEAS. SHE DOES THIS BY GETTING CUPID TO TURN INTO A CREEPY-ASS BABY CLONE OF AENEAS’ YOUNG SON ASCANIUS. CREEPY-BABY CLONE CUPID SITS ON DIDO’S LAP IN A COMPLETELY NON-WEIRD WAY AND POISONS HER WITH LOVE. THIS IS MEAN AS FUCK BECAUSE THIS WILL RUIN DIDO’S FUCKING LIFE.

AENEAS AND THE TROJANS PARTY HARD WITH THE CARTHAGINIANS, UNTIL DIDO ASKS FOR STORY TIME ABOUT WHAT THE FUCK HAPPENED AT TROY.

Quand hier soir mes amies sont venues me faire une visite surprise chez moi…Elles avaient juste prévenue Chloé le matin pour qu'elle soit dans le coup… Et elles avaient emmenées tout ce qu'il faut pour faire un barbeuc…

“On sait que t'as des petits soucis de santé en ce moment. Alors on s'est dit qu'une soirée toutes ensemble ça te ferais du bien. Et on à emmener le repas, on à du Domaine de Pellehaut en moelleux et on t'as fait de la mousse au chocolat. Tout ce que tu aimes” (*pleure comme un veau*)

Lord d'un stage en entreprise, le jour où mon professeur est venu faire sa visite de fin de stage, j'ai fait une crise de panique. Je suis allée me calmer à l'extérieur. J'étais en larmes et en hyper-ventilation. Le professeur est venu me voir, et au lieu de me calmer, il m'a dit : “rentre à l'intérieur, y a des personnes dehors, ça va les choquer”.

Attention Musicians!

Is your character musically talented? Do they like orchestrion rolls, or visiting venues? Playing or singing along? Are they looking for a chance to participate in the creation of new music?

Jun’to Nharuya may be the man for you!

Releasing a new album of orchestrion rolls to coincide with his return to the stage, the Alleycat Kingpin himself is looking currently for collaborators and guest-features on the new songs he plans to put forth, and is advertising as such!

The collection as a whole will be a sampling of various styles Jun’to dabbles in, but will as a whole have a rougher, more unrefined edge to it to accommodate his overall stage presence, as well as to better fit his untrained but powerful voice.

Collaborators and guests will be able to choose the song they wish to have present on the collection, and may, if interested, even be asked to perhaps perform them with Jun’to in the future.

There’s four slots total for collaboration, and one’s already been promised away to @blackshroudmagpie !

So come and get ‘em while they’re hot!

Cover art still a WIP.

Quick Writing Tips: Planning

Not every writer wants or needs to create a plan before they start writing. This post is specifically for the people who do. With Camp NaNoWriMo starting up again in July, I thought it would be nice to list some of the ways I’ve heard of planning out a story. Hopefully one of them might provide some ideas for how to not only start, but finish your next story.

1. The Outline

Basic outlines follow the major events in the story, effectively summarizing an important chapter, section, or scene so that you can see how the story will unfold. An outline as you might write for a high school essay typically involves an introduction, body, and conclusion, with some variation allowed depending on the type essay. You can approach a novel in the same way, planning out the introduction, major events, climax, and ending, or you can make your outline more fluid. Some outlines aren’t necessarily in order; you can list the major events you want to write about, then use the outline to place them in the order you want your story to unfold. If you have multiple characters, flashbacks, or other timeline-bending devices, you might consider telling the story out of chronological order.

2. End-Middle-Beginning

Some writers like to start out of place, first writing the end, then figuring out how their characters got there. Likewise, you can bracket your story by writing the first chapter then skipping strait to the last chapter. This gives you a realistic idea of what you need to fill in the gaps, and can prevent you from straying off on too many bunny trails while you write. Knowing where your characters will end up can also give your story a clearer direction, making the rising action and setup fit the resolution better than if you started from scratch.

3. Maps

This may be specific to fantasy stories featuring a lot of travel, but you you can adapt the idea of a world map to other stories as well. Even if you don’t have much artistic talent, you can still sketch out a general plan for what you want your world to be like. Draw details if you think they’ll be necessary, or just go with something as simple as a square and some dots for cities. Label important features or places – the map is designed to give you a grasp of your world, and can prove an invaluable reference once you start writing. For an epic fantasy landscape, you might add roads, castles, temples, caves, magical sites, locations of past or future battles, homelands of your characters, etc. If your story takes place in a single modern city, you can still create a map. Where are particular stores located, or venues that your character might visit? Where do your characters live? Where will important events happen? If the coffee shop is located on one end of town, and the cinema is located miles away on the other, does it make sense for your characters to get something there after the film? You can determine what makes each location on the map special and unique. Sometimes it’s fun to create the map first and base your story around the locations you’ve created.

4. Consistency

Maybe you have a seed of an idea that you want to grow naturally, but you still feel like you should go with a plan of some sort. Fair enough. Try finding the situation where you write best, and try to consistently spend a certain amount of time writing in it. Do you write best at a certain time of day? Free from electronic distractions? In a special room in your house? Maybe a special place outside, like a favorite coffee shop or library? Do you listen to music while you write? If you do, try to find a genre, artist, or album that fits your story and that you won’t get sick of hearing. Once you find the conditions where you write best, set a reasonable word or time goal (maybe even with an upper limit), and write. Try to do that every day.

5. Story Diagram

If keeping to a strict schedule or planning a linear outline doesn’t appeal to you, try a more creative story map. You can do this with any number of subjects you want your story to explore, but if you’re concerned about structure and story dynamics, start with the characters and events. You can list these out as with the outline, but try to keep them in a format that you can easily change or add to (dry-erase/chalk boards, or posters with the events written down on sticky notes or cards work well here). Play around with the general order of how you think the events in the story should unfold, then add arrows representing how those events affect one another. One character’s actions may initiate a domino effect that feeds into other events later on in the story. Feel free to be mess while you plan your story. Draw multiple maps; one for characters, one for events, one for symbolism, one for mood, one for style, one for literary devices, etc. Use glitter and rainbow gel pens. I don’t care if you’re thirty and writing the goriest crime drama ever, if it helps you, get your hands on some pretty pink teddy bear stickers. Use the ones with the giant purple hearts to show character deaths. Just be sure to actually start writing when the time comes.

6. Draw

You don’t need to be artistically talented to “draw” your characters. I mean, if you are an artist, nothing’s stopping you, and many artistic writers may find it helpful to be able to visualize their characters or world. But if you struggle to draw recognizable stick figures, you can still design your characters and world long before you actually start writing. Use character forms to plan out the way your characters look, maybe even throw some personality traits and backstory in there as well. Chances are, you won’t want to describe every aspect of your character directly in the book, so if you know where to start, you can imply a lot about their person without having to check back in your story for consistency. The same is true for other elements of your story, especially if it contains any made-up elements. Build up the world in which your characters live,visually, on paper, or in your your head. If your story has more realistic elements than fictitious ones, you can keep notes and build your character’s personal world, from their friends and family, to their neighbors, favorite places, their history, etc. If your story contains any subject matter with which you are not yourself familiar, draw from reference sources and keep track of what you want to add to the background of your novel.

7. Chapter by Chapter

Take small bites; consider limiting your chapters to only a few pages, or maybe even one. Each small section of your book should cover a relatively simple single idea, and if you can reach that goal in a hundred words, there’s no reason to inflate it to ten, twenty, or thirty pages. Small chapters are also easier for your reader to handle, and can prevent both you and them from getting bogged down in a 20+ page chapter. This is invaluable when editing!
