Firstly: a follow-up on the $500 eBay Werewolf Transformation Spell. YOU GUYS. The vampire one is EVEN BETTER.

SO I HAD MENTIONED VAMPIRE ABILITIES RIGHT? OK WELL LET ME EXPLAIN THAT. WITH THIS SPELL YOU CAN CHOOSE YOUR OWN VAMPIRE STRENGTHS AND WEAKNESS’S. SO WHAT EVER ABILITIES YOU WANT YOU WILL TELL ME AND I WILL TELL YOU IF ITS A POSSIBLE ABILITY TO HAVE. HERE IS A LIST OF THE MOST POPULAR VAMPIRE ABILITIES SOME LIKE.

1) STRENGTH

2) SPEED

3) PSYCHIC POWER

4) INVISIBILITY

5) TELEPORTATION

6) IMMORTALITY

7) NEVER GROW OLD

8) X-RAY VISION

9) SHAPESHIFTING

10) TIME TRAVEL

SO THAT IS A FEW IDEAS FOR YOU.

LET ME SAY THOUGH THAT IF YOU FIND SOME EBAY VAMPIRE SPELLS OUT THERE FOR LIKE $20,$50,$80 WHATEVER, THEN I ASSURE YOU THAT THEY ARE SCAMMERS. ALWAYS IF YOUR SEARCHING FOR A SPELL AND SEE THE SPELL YOU FIND AND ITS PRICED KIND OF HIGH THEN IT IS MOST LIKELY LEGIT.


This one, since you mention it, has been marked down to $500--as of last night, it was going for $2850. Draw your own conclusions.


Secondly, from kellyrfineman: "Today [a day which was before actual today] is the launch of Breaking Waves, an e-book anthology featuring some heavy hitters from the fields of science and science fiction/fantasy, including Ursula Le Guin, Tiffany Trent, Vonda N. McIntyre, David Levine and more (including a poem by me, in the interests of full disclosure). The e-book comes in four formats, and costs $4.99 U.S., 100% of which will go to the Gulf Coast Oil Spill Fund, which is doing a lot to help fishermen & their families, abandoned pets (SPCA) and environmental monitoring down in the Gulf following the BP oil spill."


Thirdly: linkspam!

All That Bullshit with Joaquin Phoenix Was Fake, After All. Not that anyone thought it wasn't, but it's nice to know for sure that Casey Affleck wasn't filming and enabling the downward spiral of his own brother-in-law.

Thank you very much for the mention. Smooch!

Ah, a Nac Mac Feegle! Rob Anybody is one of my favorites.

"All That Bullshit with Joaquin Phoenix Was Fake, After All."

Andy Kaufman did it a whole helluva lot better.

There is also a new word that needs to be added to the dictionary;
Hogger = hate blogger

Hogger already means "humiliation, defeat and despair." Ask any Alliance player.

So it was all a social experiment, eh? :p

MESSAGE TO SELLER ambroselamia:

Hi! I saw your vampire transformation spell auction and was really intrigued, especially by the part where you offer a wide range of potential abilities!

I would like the power to have scammers banned from ebay and taken out back and beaten with sticks. Is there a spell for that? Let me know!

I am in NYC if that affects my shipping options.

thanks,

liz

"I'd like to live just long enough to be there when they cut off your head and stick it on a pike as a warning to the next ten generations that some favors come with too high a price. I would look up into your lifeless eyes and wave, like this. ... Can you and your 'associates' arrange that for me, Mr. Morden?"

Time travel is a vampire power? The more you know!

How do you think they score those sweet frock coats?

I'm a little weirded out by Sasha Baron Cohen as Freddie Mercury, but I could see it working, as he looks a little bit like him...?

And he'll have someone to reign him in, I hope, which could be really awesome.

This. I can't think of anyone else off the top of my head who looks that much like Our Freddie, but...Sasha Baron Cohen? Really?

*claps hands in glee* Okay, for real, I'm not sure I knew/remembered who Orlando Bloom was playing in The Three Musketeers, but I clicked on the link to the pictures and shouted, "OH YAY he must be playing Buckingham! Perfect!" Then I looked it up, and so he is. :D Perfect!

The cats, unfortunately, don't really care. So I have to share my glee with you guys instead.

Also, SBC as Freddy -- yeah, I can see it. I think to properly do Freddy, you'd have to be a performer willing to get really bombastic (but in a good way, y'know), and I can see SBC really embracing it.

Me, I mistook the reference to Orlando Bloom's hairstyle for a reference to the historical figure and was first of all trying to figure out why y'all got your Pre-French Revolutionary France in my 17th Century France and second wondering why the hell you'd want Orlando Bloom to play her. I am pleased to be wrong in this matter.

6) IMMORTALITY

7) NEVER GROW OLD


Um...these really aren't superpowers so much as "the entire point of being a vampire."

(Deleted comment)
Bahahaha, I enjoy this person's horrendous grammar - if they have vampire powers, then they have the time to learn how to speak and type properly.

The picture of Orlando made me glad I wasn't drinking anything, because it would be all over my keyboard. xD WHAT is that costume?

" xD WHAT is that costume?"

Word. And a bad word at that.

The New Oxford American English Dictionary article has a link to a longer one, which lists some new phrases in the dictionary, including "herding cats." "Herding cats" is new? I've been using that one for years.

Also, apparently Sweet Baby Jesus takes place in Bethlehem, Maryland. I just googled where that is, and it turns out that I drove through it today and didn't even notice. So there you go.

Whoa. I used to live all of fifteen minutes from there. I'm not surprised you didn't notice, it's rather...unremarkable. And I would sincerely hope the Second Coming didn't start there. Also it's a terrible speed trap.

I can see SBC doing Freddie...but it just terrifies me.

I had the same initial reaction, but the more I think about it the more I think it might actually... not be horrible. I mean, I don't like anything SBC's done to this point, but I dislike them all in very different ways. Or maybe I'm being swayed by Peter Morgan writing it and John Deacon's approval.

What I want to know is how they're planning on handling the singing. My horror will increase dramatically if they try the Walk the Line method -- you Cannot Fake Mercury.

You know that whatever these people are getting in the mail is probably a "potion" made with Lime kool-aide, star-anise, and a healthy dose of LSD.

This whole Joaquin Phoenix thing makes me mad. Like, really, really mad for some reason. I can't even quite articulate why. Obviously the idea of his brother-in-law making a buck off of a legitimate tragedy is more abhorrent, but... Maybe it's because I used to really like Joaquin Phoenix, and was legitimately saddened by what I thought was an actual crisis. I felt a real emotion for what I thought was a real person, and to have Mr. Affleck say that it wasn't a hoax of any kind and that it never even crossed his mind is so disingenuous that I want to slap him. I also find myself now, rather than hoping Joaquin will "turn it around", hoping that he will experience the delicious irony of having actually destroyed his career and never working again.

This movie is wrong on so many levels, it's hard to even begin to articulate how. Like...why? Why would you do this? What kind of sick and twisted publicity stunt is this, to make everyone believe that your brother-in-law is a pathetic lowlife? Why would people enjoy seeing someone collapse to the point of utter depravity and completely ruin their life, whether it is real or not? It just blows my mind. What is the point of all this?

New Oxford American Dictionary Adds BFF, Bromance, Hockey Mom & LMAO Entries.

This is the dictionary used by the Kindle, the Mac's dictionary widget, and the iPhone and iPad dictionaries provided in the iBook and Kindle apps. YOUR IPHONE WILL KNOW A BROMANCE WHEN IT SEES ONE.

This explains a lot regarding the things my iPhone chooses to auto-complete.

I'm sure the Oxford English Dictionary is acting like it doesn't even know us right now.

Someone needs to write OED/OAD hatesex fic now. ;)

Or some sort of Pride & Prejudice adaptation where OAD thinks OED is just some pompous, uptight, non-slang using jerkass, when really it just doesn't know how to communicate its feelings, due to its restricted upbringing. Then OAD will see OED's beautiful library and meet its adorable pocket-sized sister and realize the error of its ways. And everyone gets married at the end!

I like how it is carefully noted that you will live forever AND you won't age. It's no good being a thousand years old if you *look* a thousand years old. It scares away the food.

Also, time travel? I was not aware that was a common vampire trait. Suspicious lack of "avoid direct sunlight" warnings as well.

I'm just concerned that now apparently you don't have to get BIT to become a vampire. How did they fix that one?
