Phew! It was rough going for a minute there, but Typepad has recovered, and we're back...

Not that I would have been the least bit fucking upset about losing my two LEAST FAVORITE things ever to be posted on WTC: Gabriel's farewell (this little nugget of pure genius notwithstanding), and the "cockfro" thread. There's nothing we can do about Gabriel; a man's gotta do what a man's gotta do -- or, at least that's what I've gathered from the cinematic works of Martin Scorcese -- but the rest of you better watch the fuck out, and start having a little fucking respect for art and hopeless love.

In other news, and appropos of nothing, I downloaded and watched the "Starsuckers, Inc." video last night, just because apparently the memory was so traumatic that I had forgotten of what, exactly, it consisted. Unfortunately, last night, as Trent was jumping around in a long leather coat and Kabuki make-up in my computer, full of sickly, self-congratulatory glee for throwing Mechanical Animals straight into the toilet, breaking Fred Durst's plate-face, and dunk-tanking fat Courtney, while his leggy girlfriend, Marilyn, frolics gaily by his side, I remembered the one and only time I have ever truly wanted to say "FUCK YOU, TRENT." Biggest misstep in the entire video (I mean, besides its fucking EXISTENCE): the camera is not on his face so that we can see his eyes when he says "...don't you dare call me a whore."

I guess the moral of my story today, also appropos of nothing, is that some traipses down memory lane are more rewarding than others. Not that numbers like "The Beautiful People" don't have their own brand of special genius, but can I just confide in you guys how FUCKING HORRIFIED I would be if my Nine Inch Nails concert were interrupted by a Marilyn Manson interlude, a la that time on the Fragility tour?

Oh, Jesus Holy Motherfucking Christ, NO.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to get back to thinking about Trent, circa 2005, naked.

Jerome Dillon's ass? kissed. Plus, FINALLY, an explanantion of what that fucking capitalization is about:

In explaining the nearLY project name and his recurring dream, Dillon says, “I could come up with a really artsy-fartsy answer for the capitalized letters, but it would be bullshit. The name nearLY itself was directly related to a recurring dream (or nightmare) that I was attempting to document musically through the record.”
His dream was actually a very peaceful one that took a few years to play itself out. “I kept getting a bit further along the path every time I had the dream, so I thought that it must be trying to tell me something,” he says. “And for about the last year of it, the dream ended with me accepting an invitation to drown myself in a very serene and calm body of water. Without sounding too bleak or depressing, the name ’nearLY’ just seemed to represent where we’re ALL heading: to the end of our time here.”

Oh! Great! That makes it a lot clearer.

(Message to Jerome: still stupID.)

Ewww. Starfuckers. Ew.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who tries to forget that video exsists. Seriously, i have more fun watching "Deep" than "Starfuckers"

I loved Manson when I was thirteen. Now... it's a completely different story.

Glad to see everythings under control here, D. Have fun thinking about Trents nekkid muscles!

Well, thank GOD shit is up and running around here again.

That Jerome quote sounds like something Tori Amos would say in an interview. I love her music, and I'm sure she's a pretty sensible person in real life, but you stick her in a room with a reporter, and Holy Jesus.

Dierdre, why did you have to go and remind us all of the "Starfuckers" video? I bet even Trent cringes when he thinks of that one. Simply. Dreadful.

Posted by: maise | Dec 17, 2005 9:21:12 AM

Jeez, Tori certainly seems to have a thing for Mary Magdalene. (or at least on that quotes page)

And this the last from me I swear…
“This is a 70's porno. You know how I know? 'Cause the guy's dick has sideburns.” I just couldn’t let this little gem go to waste. Sorry Dierdre. Yell at me if you must but I’m still laughing from some parts of that cockfro thread. I agree other parts may have gotten out of hand. I’m really sorry it got started when you were in such a bummed out mood. I hope that you’re feeling a bit better now even if you are miffed at all of us.

I don't care what anyone says, I love JD. I appreciate that he's finally getting to express himself, no boundaries. And I don't have a hard time understanding his explanations of things, why do you all? I can actually relate pretty well to the things he says.

At least he's not being an ass to those that support him.

I'm feeling high today. My signed copies of nearLY were mailed last night and I should have them in hand no later than mid next week.
Back on topic;
A naked Trent? Do we have a photo essay on the way for that D.? Will any of the photos include our newly "ripped" Trent? He'll look like one of those Greek nude statues!

I got my tiiickets I got my tiiickets! Haha bitches I'm gonna be right up front this time! HooYah...can you feel the excitment people!

Posted by: Iris | Dec 17, 2005 2:08:01 PM

Bex, maybe it's the fact that he DOESN'T MAKE ANY SENSE? Did anyone notice that the latest cause of Jerome's health troubles was a "freak accident"?

A little consistency wouldn't hurt that guy.

Also, why does the fact that his record is about a recurring dream explain the stupID affected capitalization of his painfully pretentious band name?

Here's what I think: he's a bit dense, and he's been hanging out with clever people long enough to think he's one of them. Don't get me wrong... he seems kinda sweet, and he certainly is tall and attractive, but COME THE FUCK ON.

Posted by: Jane | Dec 17, 2005 5:39:55 PM

The fact that he's kinda sickly makes him like 15 percent more attractive than he normally would be.

You know what would be HOTT...if he had "consumption." Not fatally or anything. You know, just a bout of consumption that sends him to a spa in the Alps for a few months.

Posted by: maise | Dec 17, 2005 8:05:15 PM

Consumption. that sounds like fun

I wikkid fucking drunk right now.

Jusrt wanted to let you know that durnk nicole loves you all!

Back to the party. Woo.

I just made everone listen to broken. it waas great!!!!!!


Posted by: Nicole | Dec 17, 2005 11:16:12 PM

OMG, Maise! I LOVE CONSUMPTION! I can totally imagine Jerome in that Thomas Mann novel, The Magic Mountain, lying on the terrace of his room at the sanatarium, looking as pale as death in his fur-lined sleeping bag, coughing up just enough blood to be picturesque...

Posted by: Jane | Dec 17, 2005 11:24:31 PM

Exactly! Consumption is sooooooooo romantic!*

*Ex-Catholic/Superstitious Disclaimer: I don't actually wish any real illness on the guy. Don't let anyone cough on you, Jerome!

Posted by: maise | Dec 18, 2005 1:08:36 AM

One more word about "cockfro" and I will throttle you using my Darth Vader pschyic powers, Iris. One more fucking SECOND of your crowing about your fucking TICKETS, when I CANNOT GO, and I will make sure the pain is long-lasting and unbearable.

Nicole, I love how you spell "wikked."

Jane & Maise, it's true: there's nothing like consumption to make a sickly, romantic hero! Jerome can be a man of long-suffering vitrue, like Ralph Touchett in The Portrait of a Lady!

And, Maise, I should think your Catholic guilt disclaimer would be unnecessary here! Obviously, no one wishes Jerome any harm... except, maybe, MIMI.

What's wrong, Kim?

Posted by: maise | Dec 18, 2005 11:14:43 AM

Just about everything.

Posted by: Kim | Dec 18, 2005 11:24:08 AM

That sucks...hang in there. :(

Do you want to talk about it?

Posted by: maise | Dec 18, 2005 11:31:01 AM

Nah, but thanks for the offer.

What's everyone up to?

Posted by: Kim | Dec 18, 2005 12:23:01 PM

Not much, just got back from christmas shopping. Very hungover christmas shopping.

I think I'm going to go pass out.

Yeah, tequila and smirnoff dont mix, I drunkenly rambled here during the good part...

Posted by: Nicole | Dec 18, 2005 12:36:33 PM

Spent today Christmas shopping too. I've got to make one more trip to the Mall From Hell.

Posted by: maise | Dec 18, 2005 4:59:36 PM

Fucking-A, you people are fascinating.

Posted by: Jane | Dec 18, 2005 9:25:08 PM

Ooooh, Jane's too *hip* and *cool* and *mysterious* for hangovers and Christmas shopping. Well, what did you do with your Sunday?

Posted by: maise | Dec 18, 2005 9:33:44 PM

And I sat around feeling like shit. Christmas shopping for me consists of giving my friends money to spend on what they want, and letting Mom take care of presents for everyone else.

Talk about not being able to sleep. I kept waking up feeling like all I'd been doing was laying there, not actually sleeping. For some reason my meds were wanting to keep me up.

Posted by: Kim | Dec 19, 2005 3:13:56 AM

I slept late on Sunday, and woke up to SNOW, SNOW, SNOW! After that, I briefly pretended to shop, then met some friends in a cafe, where we took refuge from cold winter weather, swilled espresso and talked. After that, all of us went to another friend's house with a bottle of wine, some lovely feta with olives, sundried tomatoes, and a baguette for a delicious snack and more hanging out, doing nothing.

Saturday, I went to a choral concert and heard carols in English arranged by Benjamin Britton, some Vivaldi, and then some Jan Ryba. Very nice.

Not a bad weekend, really.

Posted by: Jane | Dec 19, 2005 4:35:31 AM

omg, speaking of cockfro, I'm so excited that 40 Year Old Virgin is out on DVD!!!

Posted by: Baal Glyttr | Dec 19, 2005 7:59:13 AM

Oh, and Iris, thanks for the tidbit about the sideburns. LOVE IT!
