Okay commie goblin, how does tomorrow at about 930 sound? It's a bit late but I will be rushing over there after work- the place I'd called lovecraft, take the f train to 2nd Ave.
Sounds good to me; the comrade I was supposed to meet up with tomorrow evening has been called to DC on union business. I'll doublecheck with La Principessa when she gets home tonight and let you know!
Doodlebug, I really have to wonder... are there any walls in your house, are they all just bookshelves?
I had been telling my hawt commie NYC schoolteacher girlfriend that she should start filling the available wallspace in her apartment with shelves now. When she came up to visit, she looked at the books in my room and said, "Yeah, I don't think all of these are going to fit." When she asked why I was making such a hangdog face, I replied "I've also got 14 boxes stashed in various attics across New England."
I didn't even bother showing her my record collection.
I have nothing at all planned throughout the week, so I am available all the time! Work it out amongst yourselves, and I'll be there.
Btw, Comrade Freehold, I have a phone this time. La Principessa made me buy one. She also wants me to go back to school and thinks I smoke too much pot.
Some Facebook Posts:
Jackie Wilson--"(Your Love Keeps Lifting Me) Higher and Higher"
So, that last one...La Principessa and I were shacked up in a room at the Free NH Goblin Resistance Hideout while the Black Goblin and his Pregnant Dreadlocked Libertarian Ex-Welder Girlfriend cleaned up the place. They were blasting tunez from her laptop and Jeff came on. I broke a passionate liplock to look La Principessa in the eyes and sang along:
"But you don't really care for music/Do ya?"
She pouted and replied, "But I like this song!"
Haven't kept up on reading any of the books I've started, but luckily I've got another 5 hour bus ride to New York in my near future. Hopefully, I'll finally finish that last Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser story.
Speaking of which, someone above, actually two someones I think, made a comment about the increasing amounts of perviness in the series towards the end. After reading about Fingers the Cabin Girl, I had a dream in which I was cavorting with a 14-year-old who turned out to be an undercover cop. When she slapped on the handcuffs, I woke up in a cold sweat. [Shudders]
Irl, I can't even look at women in their early twenties anymore because they look like children to me. [Shudders some more]

Later in the same thread, we came to the conclusion that Samuel Jackson is evil.
Be assured that we would. Recognition and treatment of blacks has come a long way, but they are not yet seen enough as people to be allowed to be villains in movies.
Missed this before and it reminded me of an exchange from two years ago:
Madame Sissyl: A related issue to "all the people of this race are evil and bad" is "all the people of this race are good". Quick, name five black villains in major Hollywood movies, made 1980 or later.
Me: Marcellus Wallace, Samuel Jackson in Unbreakable, Samuel Jackson in Django Unchained Denzel Washington in Training Day, Wesley Snipes in New Jack City.
Did it a minute, no internet searches.
Bow before my cineaste excellence.
Was going through some boxes and found my childhood copy of In the Beginning: Creation Stories from Around the World.
Left The Magic World at Mr. and Mrs. Comrades', so I started reading the final Fafhrd and Gray Mouser story. Kinda sad cuz I don't want it to ever end...
Finished The Dark Light Years today on the bus back to New England. Pretty f&&+ing depressing for its meager 120-something pages.
Knew I was gonna finish it, so I grabbed something off La Principessa's shelves. Was tickled pink to discover that she has three of those League of Extraordinary Gentlemen companion guides. Thought about trying out Pynchon or Marquez, but in the end opted instead for E. Nesbit.
Caught my attention and tickled my fancy 'cuz Mrs. Comrade, like many a comrade before, has been trying to learn Portuguese by listening to Astuid Gilberto songs.
Vashti Bunyan--Just Another Diamond Day (an incomplete posting, alas)
Mr. Comrade was sharing a meme that said something like "People voted for the Nazis and people like Coldplay. You can't trust people."
Gave me a sinking feeling, so I went and asked La Principessa if she liked Coldplay. She hemmed and hawed and then, finally, admitted that she did. "You need to stop making fun of the music I listen to," she pouted. "Baby, I don't make fun of the music you listen to." "Oh yeah," she responded while brightening up, "I make fun of the music you listen to!"
Which is a long way of saying I can't bring myself to listen to the Shawn Colvin song she sent me, but she did, at least, also send me a song by Paul Westerberg and a clip from Bambi (yes, the twitterpatted scene).
