Kindred by Octavia E Butler: Audio


I was telling a friend about Kindred by Octavia E Butler. This is one of my top 5 books of all times...if not my very favorite. Well several years ago I saw an audio version of this book performed by the SeeingEar Theater. They perform in the way of the old time radio shows, with the background sounds and everything. It has a great cast:

Alfre Woodard as "Dana Franklin"
Lynn Whitfield as "Sarah"
with Ruby Dee performing Slave Narratives


Checking it out!

Emoboy update

Hi guys, just wanted to let you know that I am working furiously on the follow up to Emoboy. This story deserves the best update that I can write and it's not going nearly as fast as I thought it would. I picked up writing this second part even while the contest was going on. 


And I'm still not finished. 

But I have showed it to a few people to get their feedback and it is getting the thumbs up. I should have it ready for your reading pleasure in about a week. It's much much longer than the first story, and it's going to wrap up some loose ends that was left behind. Based on the initial feedback I believe that you guys are going to be pleased with the results. Thanks for your patience.


Pepper Pace

~PS~

I'll leave you with an excerpt.  



“You know we didn’t fool anybody, right?” Blair asked while anxiously biting her lower lip.

He shrugged. “They’re lucky I lasted as long as I did. Imagine if I would have thrown you on the table and fucked you right in front of everybody. That’s what I wanted to do.”

“Daniel!” She said in shock before falling into a fit of laughter. “You have changed, Emoboy.” She was eying him in appreciation. “And you look so sexy with that tan.”

He glanced at himself in the rear view mirror as he pulled out of the driveway. He had tanned some but was far from the hues of browns that would be considered true tan by California standards.

“Where are we going, baby?” He asked as he reached over to grip her hand.

“Head towards Dixie Highway.”

He raised a brow. “Kentucky?”

“Yep.”

“Alright…we aren’t really going to meet friends are we?”

Blair slipped her hand from his grasp and lightly traced the erection that even now strained against his slacks. Daniel yelped and jumped.

“No.” She gave him a quick squeeze before gripping his hand again. He licked his lips in anticipation as a warm shudder enveloped him.

Daniel didn’t know their destination until they finally pulled up into winding drive of The Wildwood Inn. It was a hotel that provided themed rooms. It also had a high price tag just for a nightly stay. Daniel didn’t need a themed room. All he needed was a bit of privacy and possibly a surface to lay, sit or stand on. At this point he was easy to please...

I have been a fan of this woman's for years. She wrote a song called Wasted Time. This song used to have my face burning because it was exactly what I felt for a certain someone that had moved on. She's an amazing songstress. Wasted time just stops. It's what makes this artist so amazing to me.

There is a song for every mood. Some of my favorites are Thankful, Shirk, Outside Your Door, You made a fool of me. This woman has put music to my most inner thoughts and desires. She's an amazing talent. For me, this says it all:

just wanna be happy
and thankful
not just
try to get through

Top 5 REASONS...

Let's just make an entire thread of Top fives! Any top fives listed can (and will be) subject to repost, though the creator will always be given credit.


5 REASONS YOU ARE NOT MARRIED (Adapted from Tracy McMillan’s Huffington Post Blog)
5. You're not good enough.
Oh, I don't think that. You do. I can tell because you're not looking for a partner who is your equal. No, you want someone better than you are: better looking, better family, better job.


4. You're selfish.
If you're not married, chances are you think a lot about you. You think about your thighs, your outfits, your career. Sometimes you think about how marrying a wealthy guy — or at least a guy with a really, really good job — would solve all your problems.


3. You're a slut.
Hooking up with some guy in a hot tub on a rooftop is fine for the ladies of Jersey Shore — but they're not trying to get married. You are. Which means, unfortunately, that if you're having sex outside committed relationships, you will have to stop. Why? Because past a certain age, casual sex is like recreational heroin — it doesn't stay recreational for long.


2. You're shallow.
When it comes to choosing a husband, only one thing really, truly matters: character. So it stands to reason that a man's character should be at the top of the list of things you are looking for, right? But if you're not married, I already know it isn't. Because if you were looking for a man of character, you would have found one by now. Men of character are, by definition, willing to commit.


1. You're a Bitch.
Here's what I mean by bitch. I mean you're angry. You probably don't think you're angry. You think you're super smart, or if you've been to a lot of therapy, that you're setting boundaries. But the truth is you're pissed. At the state of the economy. Or the bad politics of the country. And it's scaring men off.


5 REASONS YOU ARE MARRIED (Contributed by Casey of Pepper Pace's blog)

5. You fell for Disney's propaganda.
Your mother foolishly paraded movies such as Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty in front of you as a child making your impressionable mind give up all independent thinking and fall for the bullshit sold by Hollywood, that a woman needs a man to make their dreams come true.

4. He's Rich!
You did it! You got lucky and snagged a rich man! Yes, he’s a douche bag and he may even cheat but those 3 carat diamond earrings and Loubiton shoes that he buys to make up for it look great!

3. You're Ugly
Lets face it, the world is a very unkind place to an ugly girl. When you find a man who can stomach having you smile your ugly sneer across the dinner table hang on with both hands and marry his ass.

2. You're a Control Freak Bitch.
You are a strong, proud, independent woman, your life is exactly to your specifications, you have made sure of it! To bad you are a raging lunatic that scare children and animals with your loud overbearing ways. Suddenly the perfect man comes along he’s weak and stupid with a mother that you hate because she is just as crazy as you. Luckily your able to steal him away from mommy with manipulation and sex.

1. You got Knocked Up.
The condom fell off. It broke. He said he’d pull out. You had no idea that antibiotic canceled out birth control. Take your pick of excuses, whatever, you have a bun in the oven. Hell no your not going to wait around for him to pay child support he can support all three of you while you get the title and license to prove your not a hoe who doesn’t know how to make him wrap it up.


5 REASON'S YOU'RE DIVORCED (Contributed by Ben of Pepper Pace's blog)
5. Sports
You enjoy sports, your other does not and does not approve of your sports affection. You have to receive permission slips for anything you might enjoy and your other does not (see item #1). Why do you want to have something outside your spouse’s enjoyment? Your spouse is all you need to satiate your life. Work + spouse = enjoyment. Huh?


4. Your coffee is too strong
Your morning routines are vastly different. Your coffee is too strong and gives her the shits. She prefers instant coffee swill. You want to sleep in on the weekend; she wants to get up ass early and “do stuff”. Never will the twain shall meet (or something to that effect).


3. You’re a little bit rock’n’roll and they’re a little bit country.
Similar to # 2, but you want to listen to Donald Byrd and Pig Destoyer back-to-back (and somehow that’s relaxing to you) and your partner only has music as a background every now and again.


2. Scenes from the Class Struggle in Beverly Hills
While the Hollywood versions of different socio-economic matches sail away into the sunset to live happily ever after, the reality is the class differences only aggravate your partner. They aren’t seen as quirky or cute once the rings slide over the fingers. Now it’s an issue of dealing with in-laws and deciding vacations/holidays and stress/strife and ultimately resentment. Hey it does work with sane people, but who said marriage was based on anything sane?

1. You’re too clingy
Tandem is a term reserved for the Olympics or a Bicycle. Just because you’re married does not mean every daily event becomes a reason for both of you to be synchronized. You don’t need to coordinate attire nor do you have to coordinate every aspect of living. It is okay to still have some shred of individuality within the marriage realm. Women living together might sync up their cycles, but men and women living together should not be syncing up every event. 




5 REASON'S YOU'RE STILL UNEMPLOYED (Contributed by -A of Pepper Pace's blog) 
5. You have a crappy work ethic.
Your philosophy is “minimum work for minimum wage.” Your last job paid just enough so wouldn’t quit outright, and you worked just enough so you wouldn’t get fired. You think being on time and showing initiative is for the haters who like to keep their nose warm and snug between the supervisor’s tightly clenched butt cheeks.

4. You’re under-qualified.
You’re not fully qualified to do, well, anything. First there’s the advanced degree you absolutely could have completed if your previous job hadn’t been so soul-shreddingly tiresome. Then there’s the certification course that cost you hundreds of dollars. How were you supposed to know that it wasn’t worth the paper it was emailed to you on? The company that administered it had a website and everything. Finally, it’s not your fault that the only job responsibility you had at your last position was to operate the staple and paper clip station. You were the master of your domain! Never a misaligned corner, and your staples were always at a perfect 45 degree angle. You signed up for hole-punch training, but alas, the course was abruptly cancelled due to a major “de-stacking” incident. Totally not your fault.

3. You love the taste of government cheese.
No, I don’t mean that mystery loaf they used to hand out back in the 80s. I mean cold, hard government cash, welfare, unemployment, public assistance, food stamps, TANF, Sections 8, 9, and 10. Ain't no shame in your game. If the government can dish it out to rich oil companies making BILLIONS of dollars in revenue, why would anyone begrudge a few pennies trickled down to lil ole you?

2. You’re sloppy.
Casual Friday? More like casual every day. If those losers at work can’t appreciate you for your inner beauty, then they can stick their Manolos where the sun don’t shine. You will freely admit that maintenance had to ask you to clear some of the papers off your desk because they getting a mite too close to the halogen lamps suspended from the 15-foot ceiling overhead. Fire hazard and all that. The silly string decorating your old cubicle could be characterized as a creative art experiment, but even you can’t explain why your resume is hand printed in red crayon on a McDonald’s napkin.

1. You’re a lazy dog.
Yeah, work sucks. The terms blue collar and white collar mean nothing to you. Let some other dog wear a collar. You’d rather be fun and fancy-free. Plus, there’s always some self-righteous bastard at the other end of the leash. You ain’t never been nobody’s bitch, and you ain’t never gonna be nobody’s bitch.

to be continued... 

5 reason's you're divorced

5. Sports
You enjoy sports, your other does not and does not approve of your sports affection. You have to receive permission slips for anything you might enjoy and your other does not (see item #1). Why do you want to have something outside your spouse’s enjoyment? Your spouse is all you need to satiate your life. Work + spouse = enjoyment. Huh?

*This brilliant creation come from Ben, one of the blog followers. Thank you Ben! While I've never been divorced (since I've never been married), number 5 is a prime example of why I am single, # 2 is the reason that my co-worker is about to become single (she made farting noises during a teleconference with our manager and analyst...).

Gosh...do we have any more self-deprecating observations that we can post?

Caught in the crowd

My daughter came into my room a few minutes ago and said, " Mom, I just saw this video and I think you would like it.  It reminds me of something you told me."  She proceeded to describe the song.


It was a bout a boy that was so shy that he kept his head down. He wore his long hair covering his face and his shoulders slouched. One day he went up to a girl that he liked and mumbled something or other. The only thing she could make out was the last word which was his name; James. She reached out and shook his hand and she and James became friends. 


James would get bullied and one day some boys were taunting him and calling him a freak and saying that he didn't have any friends. He told them he did have one friend and he looked around and saw her and he said, KATIE!


But Katie just turned around and slunk away.


So I held up my hand to stop her from telling me the rest of the story--I refused to believed that she was such a bitch to him. I searched for the video and watched it for myself feeling very emotional.  I was praying that she would have made it up to James.  I put the video here for you to watch. 

Caught in the Crowd by Kate Miller-Heidke.
video

I had tears in my eyes when I watched this. The reason my daughter shared the video with me is because I had told her a story of one of my biggest regrets. I've mentioned this on blog before, that when I was a child I lived in the projects. For those that don't know the term it's the ghetto; an economically depressed area. 


Back then being a latchkey kid at the age of five or six was no big deal. My mother had to pick my sister up from daycare at the same time I got out of elementary, so many times I would have to walk home. In my neighborhood you...just had to be careful. 

On the way home there was a building where a little girl my age had been murdered and her body had been found there. I would literally feel the essence of that child as I walked by. I don't know how but I could see her lying there so vividly and my body would be so filled with terror that I couldn't even breathe until I had sprinted past it and then I could breath again. 


Well there was a little boy in my class that lived near me. I knew he liked me, he used to look at me all of the time. But I was super shy and I didn't like him in that way. But he started talking to me and walking me home. Soon I would wait for him and we would walk together. And I discovered that he walked me clear up to the top of the hill even though we would pass where he lived. 

When I walked with this boy I wasn't scared anymore, and I didn't fear that some maniac would leap out and snatch me or the bad kids in the neighborhood would harass me. I felt real safe and comfortable with him walking me home.


One day my friends started making fun of me and saying that the boy was my boyfriend and I yelled, "He's not my boyfriend, I don't even like him!"  And then I turned and there he was watching me. I felt so ashamed but I didn't apologize or take back my words. After school that day I looked for him but he wasn't there waiting for me. He avoided me and I never saw him again.


To this day I have been so ashamed that I hurt that kid. I just want to say, little boy, whoever you were, I am so sorry I rejected you! Even though I was only six years old, I have never forgotten that look of hurt in your eyes.


I feel a little better.

Adapted from Tracy McMillan’s Huffington Post Blog

I found this so funny that I almost made myself late for work as I sat in my car listening to the Russ Parr Morning show. As a woman that's never been married I had to ask myself if there is some truth to this, and I actually find that there is, at least for me. Whether it's completely true or not, it was still funny as hell.

Pepper as an Avatar

I thought you might be interested in seeing what I did before becoming a blogger or writer on literotica. So I'm sharing a story written by me and a group of RP writers in a MMORPGs (massive multiplayer online role-playing game). 

When you write in an RP, you write with a group of people who each take turns jumping in to complete their own portion of a story. There are many strict rules to RP writing but many positive things come from it, one of which is to be so in-tuned to your co-writers and the story that you compliment each other. I think we achieved this. One draw back is that your work is never seen. Your group is generally closed off to members only.


This is a novel length RP that was written over a 16 month period. The owner of the group is a friend of mine that goes by the name of Elifaustus. I don't own this story. Each segment was written and created by the person named in his/her post. You can post a link to this story, but please don't copy and post it anywhere because I can't give you permission for that.
*Incredibly violent story with way too much cursing, drug use, sex, coercion, rape, and just lots of BAD stuff. NOT FOR THE SENSITIVE!

FIFTH AVENUE PT 1
FIFTH AVENUE PT 2
FIFTH AVENUE PT 3
FIFTH AVENUE PT 4-The End

(The following is written by Elifaustus; group owner)
Fifth Avenue:
After many years of repression and reform, Serenity, [formally known as the United States] became the first utopia this world has ever seen. Beauty and perfection ruled. Models and superficial flawlessness latched onto the country’s heart, closely paired with a strict conservative outlook, and fed off it like a parasite.

No longer was there room for violence, illegal substances, or deviancy. Sexual intercourse was restricted to the sole purpose of reproduction. Technology continued to progress but in a continuously monitored and censored way. Violators to the law were sentenced to one of two fates depending on the severity of the crime, exile or death.

As society around the globe fell to ruin, Serenity rose above the chaos and turmoil and would have attained the status of perfection if it wasn’t for one small blemish, Fifth Avenue.

Music from commercials

Just out of curiosity...am I the only person that becomes near obsessed by music from popular commercials? My current obsession is from the Amazon Kindle Commercial-January 2011; the second half of the song. Now, I'm not interested in going out to buy a Kindle because I love my Nook...but, if I had heard this song first before I bought it...

But I am pretty positive that I bought my palm pixie based on the commercial listed here.


Kindle Commercial


Lover's Carvings by Bibio




 Palm Pixie Commercial


Sleepyhead by Passion Pit




Liberty Mutual


Half Acre by Hem




VW Commercial

Pink Moon by Nick Drake

Ok, I'm just curious, but is it just me?

AND THE WINNERS ARE....

The winner is They Say Love Is Blind ~ 155 votes
Second place is Blair and the Emoboy ~ 131 votes

624 people voted and I really appreciate it. First I'm going to thank you all for voting, coming back to check the status and even changing your votes to get the most favorable outcome. I'm only going to write the two continuations. But Jamie and Kenny will make an appearance in one of my newer ones. 

As far as Urban Vampire is concerned, it did get 84 votes which put it in 3rd place. I'll really consider continuing the third novel at some point in the near furture. As you all know from when I wrote WOS, and might remember from when I re-wrote Juicy, it takes a hella long time to do a novel length story and will knock me out of commission for other things that I'm  DYING to write. But...if it had come in second instead of Emoboy, I would have honestly pushed everything else back and wrote it. *Does a happy dance that I don't have to consider it...for the moment*


One of the projects that I've already started is a series of twisted Fairy Tales. Some of the stories are going to be raunchy and some are going to be sweetly romantic. It will be a Fairy Tale to satisfy your different desires...


But first...you can expect to see the two winning stories posting backwards with Blair and The Emoboy's continuation first--since I'm already halfway done with that.


Thank you again for voting!

The New Boy

I decided to post another feel-good movie this morning (Morning for me 6 am). If someone from outside of the US can't see any of the movies then drop me a message and I'll download it to my computer and post it directly from blogger. These are really worth watching.


This one has over a million hits, 13,000 likes and only 412 dislikes. It is the winner of the Best Narrative short at the 2008 Tribecca film festival and was even nominated for an Oscar. Also, it made me cry.

The Invitation

It doesn't interest me what you do for a living. I want to know what you ache for and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart's longing.

It doesn't interest me how old you are. I want to know if you will risk looking like a fool for love, for your dream, for the adventure of being alive.

It doesn't interest me what planets are squaring your moon. I want to know if you have touched the center of your own sorrow, if you have been opened by life's betrayals or have become shriveled and closed from fear of further pain.

I want to know if you can sit with pain, mine or your own, without moving to hide it, or fade it, or fix it.

I want to know if you can be with joy, mine or your own; if you can dance with wildness and let the ecstasy fill you to the tips of your fingers and toes without cautioning us to be careful, be realistic, remember the limitations of being human.

It doesn't interest me if the story you are telling me is true. I want to know if you can
disappoint another to be true to yourself. If you can bear the accusation of betrayal
and not betray your own soul. If you can be faithless and therefore trustworthy.

I want to know if you can see Beauty even when it is not pretty every day. And if you can source your own life from its presence.

I want to know if you can live with failure, yours and mine, and still stand at the edge of the lake and shout to the silver of the full moon, 'Yes.'

It doesn't interest me to know where you live or how much money you have. I want to know if you can get up after the night of grief and despair, weary and bruised to the bone and do what needs to be done to feed the children.  

It doesn't interest me who you know or how you came to be here. I want to know if you will stand in the centre of the fire with me and not shrink back.

It doesn't interest me where or what or with whom you have studied. I want to know what sustains you from the inside when all else falls away.

I want to know if you can be alone with yourself and if you truly like the company you keep in the empty moments.

~Oriah Mountain Dreamer

Superbowl commercials

I don't like sports.


There, said it. I don't want to engage in them. I don't want to watch them. I don't want to discuss them. I tried to play racket ball once. The ball whizzed past me. I looked at my then boyfriend like he was 14-kt crazy. That muther fucker could have hit me in the face! I walked right out of the room.


I tried to run after a tennis ball once. I was on one end of the net, the ball went to the other end and I remember grumbling, 'god damnit. I gotta run after that?!'


Because I was nearly 6ft tall in high school everyone wanted me to play girls basketball. I thought...why? Why would I willingly chase a ball up and down the court?


I DON'T GET SPORTS!


I digress...Sunday, my daughter calls me and announces that she is not going to be home until after the Superbowl. And I said, 'Today is the Superbowl?" and she says, "Mom!!" Haha...I had no idea who was even playing. Later that evening I was talking to my friend Y-Not who is a huge sports fanatic and he says, "Ewww...I must turn on mute to stop my ears from bleeding; The Black Eyed Peas are singing..." I scream, "Are they singing Time of My life????" I love that 30 bit part.


But the reason for this drawn out account is to mention something I'd forgotten. SUPERBOWL COMMERCIALS!!!!  Oh, and half-time.


I missed all of them, of course. But here are some that I later caught or heard about:


~Doritos; guy sucks the cheese from another guys finger (entitled; the best part)



~Doritos; guy sprinkles Doritos dust on dead things to bring them back to life; including the dead Grandfather.



~BestBuy: Ozzy vs Justin Beiber



~Car commercial with a cute Darth Vader kid



~Snickers; Roseanne Barr/Richard Lewis loggers



~Go Daddy: Joan Rivers in the bod of a 20 year old



~Bridgestone: Email sent to to reply all


~Chevy: Old folks home (commercial plays and old people misinterpret what is said)



~Brisk Iced Tea: Eminem


-Bridgestone: Beaver

CONTEST ANNOUNCEMENT

This contest has amazed me! On the 2nd  I announced the contest and here it is the 7th and there has already been 400 votes. 


To show my appreciation for your continued interest in my stories and for visiting my blog and making it a success, I've decided to write a continuation of the top two voted stories regardless of which one wins. 

What I'm saying is, everyone already knows that I'm going to continue the Emoboy story whether it ends up in the top two or not. So...if Emoboy ends up in the top two; then I'll write that AND one other story. If Emoboy doesn't end up in the top two, I'll STILL write Emoboy AND two others.


See where I'm heading? And if anyone wants to change their vote, the poll allows it. I am very happy that Emoboy is so popular! Shows that people are open to a well told reluctance or BDSM story. And I am very much enjoying writing the continuation of the Emoboy story as we speak (*blushes), but...you guys can get more stories out of me if Emoboy doesn't win.  


Just my input.

btw, in case you are wondering why I included the story in the poll in the first place...because lazy Pep would have jipped you out of a story (*double blush), but nice, kind, considerate Pep will uphold my agreement with you all: You give me a vehicle in which to write away my anxiety and I will continue to give you something to read that is worth your time.

The Shadow People re-edit

I had sent someone a link to The Shadow People because it was listed on the contest poll, and I decided to give it a quick read since I hadn't looked at it since October. It was so poorly edited that I'm surprised I didn't get feedback on that! Since I do my own editing, I have no one to admonish but myself!  Anyways, I decided to re-edit it. It just reads smoother now with no major changes.

I have submitted it to Literotica. This year my resolution is to pay closer attention to my writing skills and that includes editing. Here is the link if anyone is interested in reading it again. We have some new blog followers so if you haven't seen this story yet, please enjoy!

Contest: Which Pep Characters should have their story continued? (REDUX)


*Sorry I had to delete the first contest thread. But I found a neat Poll Feature that will make it easier. PLEASE VOTE AGAIN  IF YOU ALREADY SUBMITTED YOUR VOTE IN THE FIRST THREAD!*

How would you like to see one of your favorite Pepper Pace stories continued? I don't just mean an epilogue but a brand new story starring the characters from your favorite Pepper story. Vote here for whose story you want to see continue and I'll post the winner on Valentine's day.


There are two stories that you can not vote for:
Can't vote for WOS--since I'm already doing updates.
Can't vote for Juicy--since I'm shopping it for publishing. 

I've added a poll at the top right of the blog where you can vote. It will only allow one vote per person, but if for some reason you can't use the poll just send me a message and I'll hand count it. 


 Voting ends on Valentines day February 14!
