I realize LKH had nothing to do with Charmed. I just thought the community might enjoy these reviews. Mostly because the reviewer notes many similar points about Charmed: the heroes are really the villains, narcissism, feminism fail, logic fails, male abuse, and all kinds of snark.

Season 1: http://thatguywiththeglasses.com/videolinks/teamt/ol/manic/38380-manic-episodes-charmed-season-1
Season 2: http://thatguywiththeglasses.com/videolinks/teamt/ol/manic/38467-manic-episodes-charmed-season-2
Season 3: http://thatguywiththeglasses.com/videolinks/teamt/ol/manic/38701-manic-episodes-charmed-season-3
Season 4: http://thatguywiththeglasses.com/videolinks/teamt/ol/manic/38934-manic-episodes-charmed-season-4

There's more for the other seasons, but I didn't want to flood the board, and I wasn't certain how interested you'd be.

Happy watching and discussion.

Me, reading from my latest novel, Affliction. 10 seconds is not long. *laughs*

My friend reblogged the Affliction Book Trailer (I guess the trailer came out today).



Now, I'm a huge zombie fan, so I'm guessing the current zombie boom is what inspired this particular storyline (I haven't been following her blog or anything so I don't know a lot of what's going on). I want to like this, but I'm not holding out hope that it's going to be decent at all. Even though the trailer obviously ripped on every other zombie trailer out there, I can't fault them for it because so many zombie stories are rehashed plots and ideas already.

This link popped up on Twitter a couple of days ago, I've only just now gotten around to watching it: Adam Curry interviews LKH (I've been trying to get an embed code, but no luck!)

It's 26mins of general chatter with some Hit List promo thrown in there, sadly none of it that you haven't heard before. So, get out your bingo cards, Lashers! I'm paraphrasing here, but these are the highlights:
  • "I pioneered the genre!" (inb4 Buffy!)
  • "Vampires are the new Prince Charming"
  • "The people who hate the books are still buying them!" with an added "And the people hate the books read them more closely than those who say they love them." (Which I thought was a lovely way to flip off pretty much everyone)
  • Claims she's one of the first to have created vampires that can have sex with an "I have a biology degree!" bonus
  • No, there won't be any tv show/movie because she cannot understand how a full length novel can be "winnowed" down to 120-ish pages of a script. ("What do you take out?" It's like she doesn't understand that all the pages spent on description can easily be summed up with a couple of visuals)
  • She does not watch the Vampire Diaries/True Blood or reads anything within her genre.
  • Apparently she has the highest "rate" of male fans in her genre (with maybe an exception of Charlaine Harris' Southern Vampire books thanks to True Blood). I think she means percentage, but...uh, okay.
It's kinda nice that Adam Curry isn't a fanboy in this and asks questions without gushing too much. I really wish that LKH didn't just recycle the same answers she's been giving for at least the last five years for every interview/podcast that I've managed to get my hands on. I get that she's probably been asked a lot of these questions before, but that doesn't mean she has to give answers like predictive text.

But I sort of wish she'd do more interviews/podcasts, because she has got a lot more charisma in person than what gets across in blogs/social media. It's far more pleasant to listen to this than to read about it, even if I still wind up rolling my eyes and shaking my head in quiet despair.

More important to get home than to save the day? That's a terrible concept for a main character.

"What? Save the day? Nah. I''d rather just get home; staying might risk my life!"

No one should be writing books about a character who just wants to "get milk and go home." Books about characters who are not working toward something interesting end up being not interesting. This video doesn't say, "My book is going to be fun and exciting!" It says, "My main character has turned into a rather selfish coward."

 This is Jon's youtube account and on it he has a 14 part Q&A with Laurell on her tour with Bullet.  Thought this might be an interesting watch for everyone (if you can survive all 14 parts).

Updated with the Q&A summary in the comments

Hello everyone,

I've just joined lkh_lashouts after being directed here from Amazon. I've been lurking the past couple of days and laughed myself silly over the bookflogs, snarking and realisation that I am not alone in head-desking in the presence of such blatant cruelty to the common comma, the crotch of doom and über lack of series consistency or plot.

Of the many, many things that has annoyed me is the condescending attitude of the author to her readers. I don't honestly know why this should irritate me more than the racist, homophobic, misanthropic rants that have replaced any semblance of a plot in her books but it does.

The "this" in question is contained in the following youtube vid of a Q&A session. In particular, at 5.25 she talks about the difference between European and American fans.

www.youtube.com/watch

I'll summarise in case you don't want to use to brain bleach and watch said vid. She states that Americans find the sex offensive and Europeans find the violence offensive. O___o
Me thinks not. Me begs, wholeheartedly, to differ in fact.

1. Europe is not one country. We have many...more than 20 even.
2. European is not an ethnic group.
3. If we are going to pander to ignorance stereotypes, I would, in fact, say that Europeans *sweeping generalisation alert* are less hung up about sex and so have an even more fine tuned appreciation of what is good sex. Let me tell you Laurita, boring stereotypical teenage boy multiple partner/penetration porn fantasies, of the "oh my god you are so tight, so wet, fück me now-uggity uggg*  type, are not good sex, and certainly not erotica.

I, a bona fide European, started reading the books due to the supernatural murder-crime whodunit factor. Yes really.

Finally I find the anti-Germanic hatred very insulting. FYI tall, blonde, WASP-ness is....*drum roll please* a sociological and cultural ethnonymn that originated in the US and Canada and is used to refer to Americans of Northwestern Europe. /ends wikipedia quote

It is not a goddamn ethnic group. Forget the Aryan mythology, it does not exist. Germany is not populated by predominantly tall, blonde, white god-like creatures.

Gosh that feels better.

I'm not sure if this has been posted here or not, I had a search through the tags list, and didn't see it, so I thought I would link it.

Whats everyone's  take on it?  I thought it was pretty funny in places, with the rubber ducky, and the penguin, but terribly sad if someone meant it for anything but a joke vid.

Is this an accurate representation of a troo fan ?(if so we need help in here stat) :0P
