* ashbet - yes, yes, yes!!!! Watch The Kettering Incident!!! *flails* This show had me falling off the sofa last night. I did not see THAT coming and I should have! All of you who loved Stranger Things are going to go nutballs for this adult version. Watch it!!!!

* Autumn has FINALLY arrived and I hope it brings me some renewed passion for the things I once was so passionate about but which this long summer seems to have stripped me of. Fall and Winter are my months. I am already waking from a dream-filled sleep at five, and that's something I want to continue...get up, write for a few hours until my boss wakes up, and then move into the day. I feel grey. It's a strange sensation for me especially in this long-running way.

* D brought me home an offering this week. It is....disturbing....so behind a cut. Trigger warning for sad tragic dead creatures.

I watched 2 episodes the other night and am looking forward to getting back to it -- thank you for the heads-up!! :D

Those baby-bird-mummies are beautiful and pitiful at the same time -- gorgeous photography, as always!

yay!!! It's GOOD, A! And it gets BETTER!

Pitiful, yes. Thanks!

Yeah, for getting your seasons on! The awakening is a wonderful sensation.

Might be able to watch The Kettering Incident when I get back from the Feast. Right now that is my focus, although this silly cold has laid me a bit low, so not quite on it yet. Good news! I found my Penny Dreadful disc! See, I misplaced it. That is I lost it. I live in a state of clutter and chaos, but since it is self-created, I pretty much know where everything is. I rarely really lose anything, but I go a little nuts when I can't find something. I become obsessed. Can't think of anything else until I find the lost item. So, that has been foremost on my mind for the last few days. That said, season three has been pre-ordered, and hopefully will arrive before I leave. But, when I get back I will look into Prime, because it looks as if The Kettering Incident is available on Amazon.ca Prime.

The baby birds are so beautiful, delicate. Sad. Leave me wondering how, why they died. Poor little things. Even in death there is beauty.

You photographs give them life again.

I need an awakening, M. Or a returning to the shore....I'm feeling quite a bit lost at sea...

Ah, yes. It might be hard to track down. Darn this new way of watching tv. I was thinking the other day that this streaming experience may have led to the demise of LJ in that we aren't all on the exact same page any longer due to tv scheduling, etc.

Those babies. Now I feel this huge responsibility towards them. They were found in a wall of a house.

What program are you watching this show through? I looked on Netflix and didn't see it, and because I'm easily dissuaded, gave up.
Sep. 24th, 2016 03:35 pm (UTC)
Just realized it's amazon prime. Damn. Sorry for getting folks heated up about this. I'm frustrated with the way in which we watch tv....

OMG. I have been debating for WEEKS coming here specifically, to your journal, to lose my mind about The Kettering Incident and insist you watch it, but every time I got here I was like, "Yeah, nahhh..." and wandered off again.

I am so glad I was on the money though! Haha!

Yay!!!! I'm surprised no one seems to be talking about it. I was just thinking...the other day...that perhaps this new way of streaming shows and mainlining shows has helped LJ became a ghosttown....none of us have the same schedule or access any longer and the sense of a shared experience has disappeared....

You were on the money!

And how are YOU???

those baby birds are disturbing, creepy, and really beautifully shot. and at first i thought they were dead bats. ^"^

here's to a renewal of passion! i don't have a really fall icon, so have some tomatoes.

They are so disturbing AND beautiful, C. A total life/death conundrum. I, too, wasn't sure what they were for the first few moments...hard to look at. I'm glad the photos offer them some grace. Believe it or not, I went to my "gift box" and took out a nice, glass domed cheese tray...that I was going to give my son's bf for Christmas...and they are in that now and they look....very Victorian in there. It's nice.

Thanks for the tomatoes! I need some pumpkin icons! Have a pomegranate!

i bet they look good under the cheese dome. they look like they'd make a very interesting (and definitely victorian!) display.

the pomegranates are very persephone-y (shocker :D ) and thus seasonally appropriate. also, a great color.

I've come to appreciate the tragic beauty of things like those mummified birds. I hope they will inspire you to more Otherworldly tales.
Sep. 24th, 2016 03:41 pm (UTC)
*hugs* Thank you, L!! I need to find my way back to MY shore....it's been a difficult summer for me. Hope you're well and writing! Will you do NaNo?
Sep. 24th, 2016 03:56 pm (UTC)
I think so, but as a NaNo Rebel. I don't think I have it in me to start a completely new fic and aim to work almost solely on it this year. Hit 50k though, that's a goal I could do with meeting!

Love D's offering!

I drove past a really strange little shop in a tiny, boarded-up little town in upstate NY and thought of yew-w-w-w. :-)

The storefront windows were too dusty to take pictures through, so I hunted down the Etsy site so I could show you:


They also do tattoos! :-)

I want to try the Kettering Incident! Sounds perfect for my mood. Have Prime, will add.

Autumn is here too. It's so good.

Those babies make me sad, but I'm glad you have them. Put them in a nest under glass. <3
