Wednesday, 20 May 2009 Acts of Blatant Plagiarism

Act I: I truly have no shame, none at all, and have no hesitation in saying that I purloined this (the link, that is, not the inane chatter) from Michael Stone. (By the way, do yourself a favour and check out some of his work at Dunesteef).

The Name Decoder cuts to the chase and tells you who you really are. With a choice of Cyborg, Monster or Sexy (oh, yes) there’s something for everyone. No need for over-priced therapy or painful flagellation; simply type in your name and be at one with your inner self. Harmony, understanding and self-actualisation await.

Of course, I had to go for the monster option and think the result pretty much sums me up.

As much as I hate to admit to bad habits, nuns are indeed very tasty. We all have our vices, after all.

Act II: Another purloined link. Most people who read this sorry excuse for a blog are probably already members of the 52 Stitches family and so have most likely seen this trailer already. It’s presented here for those who haven’t and it’s very cool.

I’ll keep it short and sweet: read 52 Stitches now.

Act III: Well, I’ve never bothered with a third act before, so I’m not going to start now.

Your description is cool, nun eating and stuff.

Mine just says I'm blood thirsty and consumed by anger. Yes, but where are the specifics? How do I vent my anger, on small rodents, vapid cheerleaders, used car salesmen?

Makes me mad not knowing. ;-( grrrrr

Ah that trailer is cool. Only just discovered 52 Stitches....wait, 52 Stitches was how I found your blog after reading your cool story.

Rebecca – I’ll gladly send one of my nuns your way; she may help calm that anger a little. Worth a try.

Benjamin – 52 Stitches is highly recommended. One of the best so far is Vorhang (published 1st Feb).

Shameless self promotion - while you're there check out my other stitch (In the Garden).

Michael Stone said...

No doubt about it, your monster turned out the best.

Thanks for linking to my Dunesteef fic. Much obliged.

L.R. Bonehill said...

Michael – No problem. They’re great stories and Dunesteef is one of my favourite podcasts.

You're right. Vorhang was fucking creepy! I posted about all of the cool short fiction I've been reading.
