I’m In a Mood: My Top 10 Obsessions, Aug 2013
I’m in a mood people. I like what I like, I love what I love. So sue me if I’m all over the place, from movies, to art, to books, to (where my mind should be) on writing butt kicking erotic romance. Today let me share with you my mood, and my obsessions. Later, when I get over myself, I’ll break it all down into the why’s and wherefores of who’s inspiring.
Here’s my hit list:
1) KICK ASS & AARON TAYLOR JOHNSON
I could not wait for KICK ASS2 to come out. I went, I saw, I came away obsessed.
2 JOAN JETT
More often than not these days her music is creeping back into our soundscape. I want to be her, I want to live her music.
3 HIT GIRL
Hit Girl, you are officially my idol now.
While the KICK ASS2 movie is all over the place—check in on Thursday, when I’ll have a review–I have a solid conspiracy theory about how Hit Girl’s character played out & why the KICK ASS2 plot unravelled the way it did.
4 LENA HEADEY
5 EVA GREEN
Where have you been Eva? So glad that you didn’t sink into a Bond-girl worm hole after playing Vespa in Casino Royal.
I think a story (unpublished yet) by C.M.Kempe has thrown me back into my obsession with this amazing film.
7 FAV J.R.WARD CHARACTERS
Rhage, Rehvenge, John Matthew & Xhex, Qhinn & Blaylock. Rawr. It’s not even how their overwhelming urges and passion plays out. Sometimes it’s the possibility of how their rough n tough love might play out that makes me so incredibly happy.
8 COVERS FOR LAURANN DOHNER BOOKS
This one is my fav —
9 RED VELVET & ABSINTHE – I like what they say here: “Although the greats such as Bram Stoker, Edgar Allan Poe, and Daphne du Maurier are long dead, these contemporary authors keep the Gothic spirit alive…” Nice!
10 PRB & THEIR MUSES – No, not Paps Blue Ribbon–I mean the Pre-Raphealite Brotherhood. Where would they be without their iconic muses/models/lovers? Henrietta Garnett has written a book called WIVES AND STUNNERS.
In it we get the fascinating over the top dramatic lives these people lived as they broke the laws of Victorian culture like they were so much tinder–then heaped the flames high. I especially relate to the depictions of Rosetti’s crazy home life and writing no routine/no routine —that’s me right now!
