Now she walks through her sunken dream to the seat with the clearest view
And she's hooked to the silver screen,
but the film is a saddening bore for she's lived it ten times or more
She could spit in the eyes of fools as they ask her to focus on
Sailors fighting in the dance hall, oh man!
Look at those cavemen go, it's the freakiest show
Take a look at the Lawman beating up the wrong guy
Oh man! Wonder if he'll ever know he's in the best selling show
Is there life on Mars?

Linkee-poos

Elmore Leonard spills his rules of writing. The subtitle sums it up, "Easy on the adverbs, exclamation points and especially hooptedoodle." (Grokked from Astrid)

Justine Larbalestier muses on hating female characters. That's an interesting ponderable.

And then there were two (Cat Valente sells Fairlyand for publication as a YA book). Two do not a trend make, but it's interesting. And no, I don't think I'm going to put Bladesman on the blog anytime soon.

I'm trying to post less of politics, but this was too good to pass on. Yes, it seems that liberals are all about crushing the conservatives and Rush's attempt to be a part of the group making a bid on the Rams is just the latest affront. That's irony, BTW. The link goes to an article that reminds people that the conservatives in 2005 threatened to revoke Baseball's exemption from anti-trust laws if George Soros (as a part of a group) would buy into the Washington Nationals. As the articles state, the liberals in Congress haven't even made a peep about Rush and any actions to remove Football's exemption. Just a bunch of individuals who said "it's a bad idea" and then his own partners dumped him out of the group. Crow, it's what's for dinner. (Grokked from Jay Lake)

"Try to leave out the parts that readers tend to skip."

I love that.
