wook77: (FAIL BOAT)
You ever read a book and think, "this shit is so bad that I have to share it with the world"?

Below, is a c/p of a sex scene in a book called Bareback Mountain by Frank Sol. It is, hands down, the worst sex scene I have ever read. I laughed so hard I started choking. I scared my dogs as my laughter echoed off the walls of my room.

armpit licking, man-juice, gobbling, uncut prime piece of meat and when no means yes, all for the opportunity to slurp everything out of a fleshy tube )

I'm suddenly feeling a lot better about my own writing...

"Poke, poke, poke," Clint said. "Oh, I just love poking things. Poke, poke, poke, WHAM!" and Clint shoved his hard dick up Jesse's ass.

I know the last few review posts were filled with snark but, honestly, most of the books I've read this year are crap. This post, however, is full of gems. I recommend each of these highly.

I will be linking to All Romance eBooks as they offer a really great rebate program (buy 10, get 1 free plus rebate cash to use towards future purchases depending on the book/publisher). I do not receive a commission or anything. Feel free to buy where you want from. I just happen to really like the rebate program here.

Everything I Needed to Know About Life, I Learned From Sesame Street (and Mister Hooper)

Sesame Street's anniversary makes me grin and shake my head and realize that I'm getting old. I grew up on Sesame Street. To really get an understanding of how much Sesame Street, 3-2-1 Contact, Electric Company and Mister Roger's Neighborhood meant to me, I need to explain where I grew up and what little exposure to the outside world I had.

I lived out in the middle of bumfuck. We had 20 acres, most of which went back to woods with deer that would walk around our orchard looking for fruit. We had a garden that was a few acres big and we, for the most part, grew all of our veggies and fruit. We made our own jelly, canned our own tomatoes and I cannot tell you how awesome it was to steam up our own asparagus.

My driveway was half a mile long and we owned a snowplow that broke more often than it worked. We lived in a huge dip in the road and that dip resulted in me, literally, walking uphill both ways to school. In the snow. My walk to the school bus was over a mile long. One year, for Girl Scouts, as part of our environmental awareness campaign, we had to count the cars that drove past a major intersection near our houses at rush hour. I had 3. All day. For sitting at that intersection for 4 hours.

So all this is to say that there's a reason we only got three stations, the local ABC affiliate, the local NBC affiliate and PBS. Cable? HA! We would've had to pay for the poles to go down our street and our driveway!My family and I devoured the PBS because it was either that or movies (rented from the nearest movie rental place that was a 30 minute drive away and was a mom-and-pop store) as far as young children went. We watched everything. 3-2-1 Contact was huge in our house. I learned about electricity and helping others and science. Mister Roger, on the other hand, scared me. It had something to do with the changing the sweaters and the shoes. IDK, my little kid brain was weird. Or, god, Captain Kangaroo. That show ROCKED.

But, by and far, the most popular show in my house was Sesame Street. I remember Gordon, Luis, Maria, Linda, and Bob. I remember signing along with the songs and dancing about as Big Bird and Oscar taught me about caring and sharing. I remember learning a bit of Spanish and that pinball routine where they taught you to count. (and I might still sing it) here is a link and you'll be singing it for hours afterwards. It's addictive.

I remember learning about death when Mister Hooper died (offscreen) of a heart attack. I remember my mum and dad sitting down with my older sister, my older brother and me and talking to us about how sometimes, when people get old, their hearts give out. I remember crying and wondering where Mister Hooper was because who was going to run the store and sell paperclips to Bert if Mister Hooper wasn't there.

I just rewatched it again and, I'm not ashamed to admit, I still teared up and sniffled.

I am appalled at how behind I am. So here goes - a few catch-up reviews. Standard disclaimers apply - spoilers and such are rampant throughout. Books I highly recommend have links so you can get a better description of the plot.

After this? there's only 52 more to go that I've accomplished so far. :/ When I say behind, I really really mean behind.

A Few Recs

I've been promising links to a few of my favourite GLBT books.

The first is Kirith Kirin. I reviewed it before and it maintains a very high spot on my favourite book list. A small caveat - I would not read the continuation of the series. It devolves into a weird world that I didn't enjoy.

Lynn Flewelling. No, srsly. She has two series - Nightrunner series feature a gay couple as the two main heroes. Every book (but the last one which I hated) is well written. I have high hopes for the next book as the author took the concrit and worked on the issues and promised to improve the issues. So give this series a try.

The second series is Tamir Trilogy features a transgendered heroine. It's a fantastic concept and it's fairly well executed. I quite like this series.

So there are some of my favourite books. Do you have any recommendations?

Finally, a few more fandom things - I've been promising a link to this story - Why Sex Ed Should Stay in Schools - it's a Sesame Street slash story and omg. The lulz. I talked about this at Terminus a lot. I've talked about this story in chats and on vacation and just go read it. It's seriously amazingly crackalicious.

Verbotene Liebe playlist. Srsly awesome in a semi-poorly-acted German and subtitled sort of way.
wook77: (wtf - politics)
I have had a really bad headache all day. I think it's 95% caused by "someone is wrong on the internets" syndrome, 4% caused by the weather and 1% caused by genetics.

[livejournal.com profile] rs_games is posting Round II. Why not pop over and give it a try? It's going a lot more smoothly than before. There have been some rather awesome stories. Especially by Team Experience Wins Every Time versus Team Why Is My Willie Hard And What Is It Really Supposed To Do?.

I have thinky thoughts on what being a mod is all about but I'll leave it for another day.

I spent the evening off either sleeping or reading the trashiest novels ever. The current one isn't even well written. SNARK AHOY!

In fact, Review of Soul Song by Marjorie Liu. To sum up - merman rentboy and that's the best part )

Final Verdict? 3 out of 10 if just for the crack factor.

The other one, I spent good money on, all of three dollars and thirty eight cents. The Nymph King by Gena Showalter )

Final Verdict: A surprising 5 out of 10. At least it didn't have a bunch of typos.

Finally, the last book I've read in the past day and a half - A Hunger Like No Other by Kresley Cole )

Final Verdict: 6 out of 10.
wook77: (Deamus - Kiss)
My gift at [livejournal.com profile] hpvalensmut has been posted and it is, to put it mildly, fucking awesome.

Finish to Start - Deamus NC-17.

Summary - In which Dean Thomas has a vivid imagination and draws a picture. A relationship in reverse.

Warnings: wall!sex; hand kink; irish gaelic; unrequited love; the rambling thoughts of an artistic mind

Ok - first reaction when I read the warnings - oh god, not again. Not another artsyfartsy stupid incomprehensible story**. Not another story where the names could be lola or harry or boba fett. Please Lord, you would not be that cruel.

** - when I say artsyfartsy stupid incomprehensible story, I do not mean the one you think I mean. In fact, you probably have no idea what frelling story I'm speaking about. Please don't assume that whatever story you think this might be about is the right one or even *GASPSHOCKAMAZEMENT* the right fandom. Have you seen my userinfo? Have you seen how many fandoms I participate in? Cryptic much on this? Yep. I'm just tired of people assuming they know what story I'm speaking about.

spoilery review of the story )
