List mail seems to be a little slow today. I sent something out earlier, but it never came through. Since I didn't get an error message, hopefully it's just being lazy.

Not that anyone checks this bloody thing, but sirensrpg.co.uk and glamdevils.co.uk are both temporarily down. I don't know why. The host is down as well.

The list is still working uninterrupted and is viewable through the Yahoo Groups archive.

Mood: amused.
ochre is rocking my arse on the writing front. Well done, mate!

Martin and Natalie:
Martin almost felt like he was talking about someone else's life. The drugs in his pocket felt heavy, alight, like there must be a glow coming from them to tell everyone how far he'd
fallen from when he was a star in his father's eye. He downed the contents of his glass and smiled. "I just wanted to see, maybe sometime we could have a chat about him. About what you remember."

Chaz and Tianne:
Chaz reacted like a coiled spring whose wire had been tripped. Everything fell away from him and all he could feel were the points where he was touching Tianne. Her hip on his thigh, her knuckles touching his neck while she held on to his collar, his palms on her tiny waist - his fingers met on her back -, and his mouth on her mouth, breathing her breath. Like he'd
spiked a vein and mainlined pure sunlight, his blood was hot and his mind was reeling.

Like an errant puppy, the thought gambled across the manicured lawns of the love he suddenly felt for this incredible woman. Before it could be chased off, it sniffed, squattted and let out its beastly summation of this incredible moment: "Gosh."

Mood: blah.
Midnight
criminal metabolism of guilt forest
Rattlesnakes whistles catcalls

Remove me from this hall of mirrors
This filthy glass

Are you her
Do you look like that
How could you be when
no one ever could

~~~

Poet of the call-girl storm

She left a note on the bedroom door.
"If I'm out, bring me to."

~~~

I dropped by to see you
late last night
But you were out
like a light
Your head was on the floor
& rats played pool w/ your eyes

Death is a good disguise
for late at night

Wrapping all its games in its calm garden

But what happens
when the guests return
& all unmask
& you are asked
to leave
for want of a smile

I'll still take you then
But I'm your friend

~~~ Jim Morrison

Subject:Question
Posted by:novadivine.
Time:2:32 pm.
It occurred to me that while SirenRPG has been going for a year, we've only been through about a week in gametime. Amazing, right? Still, it's not that we're dragging our feet or anything. I think it moves at a pretty good pace. I think it's just that we have so many characters, that it's like a long train. It takes awhile for everyone's stories to move along. But there's a lot of action packed into that one week. :)

What do you think? Should we be moving days along more quickly or do you think it's fine at its current pace? Should we jump ahead in time, say by a few months or a year, or keep it like it is?

Your opinions are appreciated.

Subject:Storylines, 10. June 2002
Posted by:traumatik.
Time:6:21 pm.
Martin Drake and Jason Fare of Diabolique have just taken their instruments to the repairman extraordinaire, Snookie. Martin cracked the neck during their performance at the Elsinore, but Jason's bass was played by Tianne during their performance. Jason missed it, having been on another misadventure and the victim of petty crime. He got an earful at Sirens last night about missing an important gig, but his explanation (and a fist fight) settled the matter. Tianne, however, left a few marks on the bass, which made him feel as though someone had interfered with his sister. Snookie promised to repair it, and Martin's guitar. Now they're hanging around the front of Andante waiting to think of something to do.

Their bandmate Eric Alban has spent the bulk of his time lately with the beautiful dancer and massuese Natesa Pillai.

Diabolique's drummer Christos O'Connell is currently foraging for food in the lavish, borrowed flat of American rocker Mark Ash, having just spent a wild night with him and girl-drummer-in-wonderland Olly Outsin of the all girl punk rock band Stinkfish.

Her bandmates Anna Zone and Ginger Beer have met up with Null members Whitey (Kennedy White) and Itchy (Anthony Fabrizzio). New Stinkfish singer Natalie Twist has just joined them and is currently sitting on Whitey's lap.

Null singer Billy Hex and American rock goddess Jami Suede are taking in the sights of London, causing a bit of mischief on day tours.

Fiona Meadows has just found out where the members of Null are staying and has leaned on Tianne Du Claud to get her to join her for an 'important meeting'. Tianne is not terribly pleased at the sudden assignment, given that she's just made a lunch/shopping date with Chaz Nettles of Diabolique.

Lennon has finished her article and is currently waiting for Fiona to show up to their meeting at Gianni's Italian. This morning, she phoned Frankie James' office to attempt to get Nicholas Pyke's telephone number so that they could continue their collaboration on an involved piece about the elusive rock star, at his own urging. She has just been asked by a waiter at Gianni's if it was her seen in the photo with David Sear that appeared in the paper a couple of days ago.

Fiona was just telephoned by Phoebe Prim, assistant to Frankie James, to leave a message for Lennon at Now! Magazine. Lennon doesn't formerly work at Now! and Fiona is all but ignored by James Management usually, so this has got right up Fiona's nose. But a connection is a connection, so Fiona played it sweet and took the message.

Jacky paper has just endangered the lives of the members of the Silencers and their newly found friend Ian Flanigan by driving at break neck speed to Intoxica, where they've met Julian 'Sid' Heady and picked up some of Damon's reserved jazz records. They're on their way to sell one of Jules' paintings to an older collector so they have enough money to get some clothes and food.

Darren Durrell has just left Intoxica, having had a charming meeting with Julian which resulted in his inviting Julian to join him at Edward Brand's London gallery opening.

Edward Brand, famous American artist and collector of people, has come to London to bring Brand Name Labs' own form of artistic excess to the scene. Speaking mostly through his assistant and friend Madelin Chinaski, he's arranged with the London Art Board to sponsor and present a week's worth of gallery openings for the work of up and coming artists from Britain. So far, he's asked Darren Durrell and Tristan to exhibit their works, and is in contact with several other artists in the area. He's chosen Gala Sotto's gallery Inzpirazzione! in which to exhibit the bulk of the week's art, which has Gala and her friends (boyfriend Snake, artist Tristan, Tristan's boyfriend Tilleger, Carlo di Spacatto and his lover Caria Kite) abuzz with excitement. Their current project is to decorate Tristan's flat and make it presentable.

Tristan sent a painting to Nicholas Pyke on the off-chance dream that he might like it and come to his opening. Pyke liked it enough to hang it in a place of honour in his living room and ask for technical specifications so that he could perform at the opening, which knocked Tristan's socks off.

Jared Crowley is in his office at Astral Management meeting with Rob Osbourne and Shandy Bryant of The Hit Parade television show on British Isles Network. Rob had to leave the side of Sarah Bailey (owner of the Lyric Theatre) this morning to make an unexpected meeting with Shandy at Verna's cafe to discuss the fact that their one and only guest for this evening's show had cancelled, leaving them in a very bad position. Rob's solution, to ask Jared if his band Intra Venus could perform, has not yet been mentioned to Jared, as they're waiting for Jared's new assistant Lucy Martin to come to her first meeting on her first day of work.

Jared's not bothered by the fact that she wasn't there at this late hour (noon) because he, along with CC Harlowe and Robin 'Shiv' Graves, kept her out so late that they all ended up crashing on Jared's living room furniture. CC made breakfast, and Shiv and Lucy are currently finishing their meal and are about to head out. Shiv and Lucy are forming a strange friendship, and are quickly falling into the roles of brother and sister tinged with mutual appreciation of their beauty and talent.

Trevor Cale, guitarist for Intra Venus, returned yesterday evening from a court case for possession. The case was thrown out for lack of evidence. He's lying low at home, decompressing.

Eddie St. John, owner of the Germaine Playhouse, is currently in the company of megastar Mae Lin Lee. They're on their way to an 'inordinately decadent meal' at the Ritz, where they'll meet Eddie's girlfriend Kali (performer, fire eater) and British Film Industry superstar Adrian Cross, who has also invited his best friend and Lionheart drummer Paul 'Tuck' Tucker. They will discuss their roles in the upcoming St. John-directed play Waxing the Vine.

New arrival to London, model Marquita Tyson is currently meeting with Judith Hartford at the Judith Hartford Agency. They're on their way to a lunch date with model and Intra Venus drummer Rhys Atkins to discuss the new job they've been asked to do for Edward Brand's upcoming gallery week. This is possibly Judith's biggest client, so she's gathering her best models on the job.

Subject:Just a little inspiration...
Posted by:traumatik.
Time:11:16 am.
Mood: awake.
Rock N Roll Suicide
David Bowie
(From the album Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars)

Time takes a cigarette, puts it in your mouth
You pull on your finger, then another finger, then your cigarette
The wall-to-wall is calling, it lingers, then you forget
Oh, you're a rock 'n' roll suicide

You're too old to lose it, too young to choose it
And the clocks waits so patiently on your song
You walk past a cafe but you don't eat when you've lived too long
Oh, no, no, no, you're a rock 'n' roll suicide

Chev brakes are snarling as you stumble across the road
But the day breaks instead so you hurry home
Don't let the sun blast your shadow
Don't let the milk-float ride your mind
They're so natural - religiously unkind

Oh no love! you're not alone
You're watching yourself but you're too unfair
You got your head all tangled up but if I could only make you care
Oh no love! you're not alone
No matter what or who you've been
No matter when or where you've seen
All the knives seem to lacerate your brain
I've had my share, I'll help you with the pain
You're not alone

Just turn on with me and you're not alone
Let's turn on and be not alone
Gimme your hands cause you're wonderful
Gimme your hands cause you're wonderful
Oh gimme your hands

The website has been updated to include links to GlamDevils Radio and this very Live Journal. Ooh und ahh. :)

Does anyone think I should revamp the characters sheet to be alphabetised by the characters' first names instead of their last? Do you use it?

Also note that the list is now being actively archived at Yahoo Groups. Huzzah!

Subject:Yeehaw, Yahoo!
Posted by:novadivine.
Time:9:05 am.
The Yahoo! Groups service will be down for scheduled maintenance
Friday, March 15, 9:00 PM PST (GMT-8) as we move our servers to a new
facility. We expect the service to be restored the morning of Sunday
March 17.

During this time the web site will be unavailable and email will not
be delivered. (Some users may experience email non-delivery notices
while the service is down, but all email should be delivered once
service is resumed.) Please note: once the service is restored, there
will be email delays due to backlog. We expect these delays to last
no longer than 1 day. Please do not re-send email to your group as
this will only add to delays.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Subject:From YahooGroups
Posted by:novadivine.
Time:1:55 pm.
Monday March 4 10:45 a.m. EST (GMT-5) Groups suffered a hardware
failure which caused the site to go down for 24 hours.

We repaired the system and brought the service back online Tuesday
March 5 9:30 a.m. EST (GMT-5).

One side effect of being down for this period of time is that there
is a backlog in email deliveries. All email sent to your group should
be delivered, so please do not resend email to your group. The system
is currently working to clear up that backlog.

We apologize for the inconvenience. We would have liked to have
notified you in advance, but this was an unplanned outage.

One day, I'll post these things to the right journal on the first try.

Here's the deal. Since I have trouble sending Sirens posts through email, I usually do replies through the YahooGroups site. And since that's been down, and I've waited half the night for it to come back up, my replies will come bright and early tomorrow instead of tonight. :) In the meantime, I went ahead and did a more up-to-date update.


At Sirens:
--Kali has just given Eddie a small demonstration of her act. Together, they're going to try to track down Adrian Cross.
--Spence and Lena are doing something productive, I'm sure. :)

Starlight Cafe:
--Fiona and Gala are still talking with Tristan and Tillie.
--Billy, Riley, Isabella and Ginger have just arrived for lunch.

Harlequin:
--Caria and Carlo have just arrived at the pub.

Ramon's Closet:
--Jared and CC have arrived and are being tended to by RrrraMON!

Verna's
--Natalie and Olly have just met Kennedy White (no relation to yours truly).

Elsewhere:
--After stopping by the television studios, Robert and Sarah are on their way to Sirens.
--Eric and Natesa are getting ready to head out to Sirens.
--Johnny Proper just caught Ian taking his wallet outside some shops.
--Tos and Mark Ash are riding the same bus, heading in the general direction of Sirens.
--D'arcy is up and about.
--Jami and Iago are off together...somewhere...they'll be around soon.
--Adrian and Tuck have made their appearances in court and should be ready to celebrate...and I believe Nicholas Pyke should be awake and ready to party soon, as well. ;)
