I don’t know if you have seen this book by Robert Coover but it is a very unusual book. It seems to reflect my attitude towards spanking almost perfectly. Like the instructions on your shampoo, lather, rinse and repeat. The first copy had this cover but I misplaced it.
I just downloaded an ebook version and I did enjoy the cover art for this version.
Okay I don’t understand how the same story can be credited to a different author unlike this other edition.
But I am pretty sure the books are the same. Any way the story is set in a single site with a master and his maid. She is regularly punished for shortcomings and the tone is quite surreal. The description of the Times mirrors my own feeling about the book and can be found here http://www.nytimes.com/books/98/09/27/specials/coover-spanking.html. I just regret that spanking the help has gone out of fashion.
I can not believe it, it does not compute. Robin fucking Williams is gone! I can not say I don’t get it, I mean professional persons in this wonderful place we live in will tell you: Its only pain, you won’t die from it! I actually had a “Doctor” tell me that, it was his professional opinion and he could not have been more wrong. If you are hurting and there is nothing that you can do about it the only choice is giving up.
I mean you really can not successfully “beat a dead horse”. It is beyond your ability to influence in any way, unless it’s a zombie. I hope that he has found the peace that he was lacking in his life.
The “Crazy Ones” wasn’t that bad, but I enjoyed the outtakes more than the show, maybe Mr. Williams should have written them damned thing!
I just have to post this any way. I was a huge fan of Karen Gillian ever since she first appeared on Dr Who as a kiss o gram police officer.
I have to admit the tiny skirt she wore did not influence me at all. Well maybe just a little. Then she shaved her head to be in Guardians of the Galaxy. I can not imagine cutting off all that lovely red hair.
She was cast as Nebula and did a fine job, will probably be back for the sequel. After I had seen her in GOTG I just had to check out what she did in between. I found 2 films Occulos a Gothic type horror tale and Not Another Happy Ending. a Rom-Com. I just happened to catch her on Craig Ferguson and she was saying that she was nude in that movie.
The scene is short but there she is trying to complete her novel, sitting at her word processor, dressed in only a baseball cap. The other Woman in the scene actually says that she would not do a nude scene unless it was vital to the story. Most of the time she is covered up but she runs away from the camera and Karen does naked really well. She claimed that by the end of the day she actually forgot she was naked. You can see her here
I make no apologies I am dedicated to ALL THINGS TREK but also like many other science fiction programs. I actually almost lost it the first time I went on the star trek experience simulator, well I did control my reactions, mostly but I did have to hunch down on the final simulator part to conceal my reaction.
I first was exposed to Dr Who via PBS and I thought that Tom Baker was Dr Who. His trademark scarf and gently humorous banter, not to mention a robotic doggie companion K-9. I could not help but appreciate his response to being physically threatened, he would hold out a loaded paper bag and offer a jelly baby, most of the time it worked.
I have recently come to know the other incarnations of the doctor and acquired some of the early episodes. I was shocked to find that the original doctor traveled with his granddaughter, Susan and two of her teachers. Susan was credited with naming the doctor’s machine the TARDIS. Susan referred to the doctor as Grandfather.
Well I watched some of the first two seasons and came to “The Dalek Invasion of Earth” not the first appearance of the one of the doctors’ oldest enemies but an interesting chapter nonetheless. After a few moments of dialog since apparently this doctor’s TARDIS had a mind of its own, the doctor had finally returned them to Earth. Susan accidentally causes a bridge to collapse and injures her ankle, preventing their access to the TARDIS altogether, Susan apologizes and the doctor answers “Now you are paying attention in a huff” he scolds her and ends the discussion with “What you need is a jolly good smacked bottom”
That got my attention, not a way I had heard it expressed before but I was sure I knew what that meant. I replayed the scene several times and was reassured that was what he said. This show was aired originally about 59 years ago but strangely enough if you Google the quote from the doctor you will get all kinds of links to Dr Who fans and blogs, who knew.
Well if this worked you can see the scene for yourself. A different way to describe a spanking that I hadn’t heard before and on a favorite show to boot. This was Susan’s last appearance as the doctors granddaughter, it may reflect the writers opinion of her leaving the show.
Will somebody please open a window, anyone I am just asking for assistance? Almost 4 years ago something strange happened to me. One morning I woke up, I was in Southern California trying to complete jobs for my old clients and I was completely confused. I was unable to initiate speech and could barely answer questions. I could not put the correct name to devices that I had been working with for at least a decade.
Since I was there to work I tried my best to just carry on like nothing was wrong, I went on several jobs and finished some despite my diminished capacity, I actually had to resort to technical assistance and let others perform the services I was there to provide.
Just recently I had an additional MRI and EEG and it seems that some time ago I had some kind of traumatic event similar to a stroke. It was limited to the part of my brain that regulates speech and visual memories. I suppose I should be grateful, I have had older members of my family suffer the after effects of a stroke with the worst being 50% paralysis, strange drooping of one whole side of the face and the inability to move one arm and leg.
I guess I should be grateful. I could have been paralyzed or dead and despite the name I really don’t think that the dead are grateful. At least I can confirm that I was not imaging things or gone completely mental, aside from the fact that the damage was in my brain. This does explain a lot, I have been deteriorating since then but I never would have done anything like this blog before.
I got better but I was different, a little slower, a little dumber, and I sometime wish I had a delay on what the fuck comes out of my mouth, seriously folks I even look over prior posts and can not imagine who posted these items. I mean aside from putting up my favorite images and pictures the stories I have posted are mostly true or at least as accurate as I can remember them. Since most of the events are highly embarrassing I would have at least hesitated before I put the down in black and white and sometimes in color.
I am felling better and hope to attend the fabulous spanking event Texas All-State Spanking Party and have hopes that it will be an awesome time. I hope to report about that in a later post.
