Mystery Witch, The Case of the Haunted Stripper, what?

Hey there folks who still read blogs occasionally. I know I said I was going video blog, mostly. but here is a quick post to flog my new short story, the first in what I hope to be a year long series. Last year I wrote a short character backstory for a tabletop RPG that never materialized as an actual game. But I loved the character i came up with, and the short scene really nagged at me to be expanded. I came up with over the last year about a dozen or more ideas for this character, and her universe.

Her name is Moira D'Arc, and she's a Homicide Cop who finds comes into supernatural abilities at her 45th birthday party while a haunted male stripper is swinging his bits in her face. Then things get weird.

I hope to be able to sell a few copies of each story every month, building some readership, and eventually serializing all my unfinished novels, and more stories that come to me.

I am also selling some Strawgirl calendars, magnets and other artsy ephemera more and more in the coming weeks, and eventually full time, i hope. all creative all the time. Book design was by me, so if you are looking for some coverdesign let me know!

9 movies I can watch any time of day or night pretty much.

The Maltese Falcon
Midnight Run
Young Frankenstein
Raiders Of the Lost Ark
Citizen Kane
The Breakfast Club
His Girl Friday
Nights Of Cabiria

Lots of other films out there, but I wanted to do a list of nine, and these are literally the first 9 I thought of. The list is in no particular order. All of the films are obviously favourites, but if I was making a best of list as opposed to a most re-watchable, it would be different. some films require more time passing between viewings than others, in my opinion. I don’t even really like rating a film until i have seen it at least a few times over several years. Tastes and times change.

Indolent Spinster Weekly Report #5

Music Talk with your  Indolent Spinster,  Josie Boyce.
Thoughts towards a Trans Soundtrack for Generation X Trans Folk. 

This one is just thoughts in movie form about music, the 80's, gender and me. none of it is very deep. it's just the start of a conversation. I will dig deeper in further weekly reports! I thought about narrating it, but didn't like how i was rushing it, the pace is better just reading the text, and is more what this film wanted to be. I'm just the vessel. Sometimes the vessel speaks, sometimes it just texts.

As a kid I was embarrassed but secretly over the moon about any song, movie or tv show that referenced trans-ness, in however vague or concrete. The movies were completely horrifying or campy generally, with trans characters being murderers or prostitutes or mentally ill, some combo thereof... in TV land it was more men in dresses kind of humour. Either way you had to scour visual media  to find any ‘positive’ role models, I never fo…

Weekly Report of the tenth variety, short, sweet and a few weeks late. filming to the beat as much as cutting to the beat. Stars Missy the Kitty, and a couple of local crows who like to taunt her.
