The Call of ME-thulhu

Home from Willy Wonka. Grinning silly-ily.

Awake enough to do a meme:

Which creature of the night are you?
Your Result: Cthulu Spawn

You are really an alien thing, aren't you? I can't describe you because you are beyond. We say "left field" and you say "Krn Grth Thchrang." You are the wild card of the bunch, the unknown quantity

Making dream-synopses funny is a good skill

I'm packin' up me mind preparatory to sleeping, so not too many more of my words will come out tonight. Instead I'll share Caitlin R. Kiernan and something she said today:
Yeah, so...despite what people might think, whatever preconceived ideas might have been nurtured by the sort of erotica I write, it is only very rarely that I have sex dreams. That is, dreams with sexual content, much less dreams wherein I actually get any. This morning, however, I had what can only be described as a Buffy slash fic dream. Me and Willow (Alyson Hannigan). Only she was older, and was dressed very like Stevie Nicks (some might say this is a Wiccan's worst nightmare). And I was a werewolf. And just as things were getting interesting, Spooky (who'd been there all along, watching from the sidelines), told us we should both put our clothes back on. And we did. And then the dream headed off elsewhere. Spooky claims that I cannot hold her responsible for things she did in my dreams. I mean, to her credit, in her defence, it was my dream. But...I'm suspicious.

Danny Elfman Interview

Via Mike Russell: a two-part, one-hour-long interview with composer Danny Elfman, touching on such stuff as:

* his recent score for Notorious, a movie about the life of The Notorious B.I.G.
* writing songs for films
* his influences
* his working relationship with Tim Burton
* fans who were incensed that he wouldn't reference Jerry Goldsmith's Planet of the Apes music when he scored the remake
* His reaction to an animated version of himself getting his head cut off on Family Guy's Star Wars episode
* And how he was moved to get political during this election by creating a "We can't risk a President Palin" commercial. (He also founded the website Our Greatest Fear.)

He swears. So you know.
