Passengers

Posted: March 9, 2017 in Review

I’ve been looking forward to watching Passengers for so long that when it finally came to Vudu, I stayed up until 11:00 on Monday night to watch it.  The movie didn’t do as well as it should have since the PC crowd didn’t like the hidden twist involved in how Aurora (Jennifer Lawrence) awoke from her hibernation pod.  Now, if you haven’t seen the movie, don’t read any further, since spoilers will be discussed.

To give a quick summary for those who don’t like to visit wikipedia, 5000 people are on their way to a new planet in hibernation aboard a spaceship for the 120 year trip.  30 years in, Jim (endearingly played by Chris Pratt) wakes up to discover he is the only one due to a malfunction.  He tries and fails to get his pod to put him back to sleep.  He gets depressed and almost kills himself before seeing Aurora in her pod.  He watches her videos and reads her articles and falls in love with her.  He doesn’t want to wake her, knowing he will trap her on the ship to eventually die, but he’s weak and the temptation is too strong.  Over the next year they fall in love until she finds out what he did. Then she’s furious, calls him a murderer and wants nothing to do with him.  Then one of the crew’s pod malfunctions, so there are now three, but he’s dying due to the way he woke up. Knowing he doesn’t have much time left, he gives them access to the bridge and medical.  They realize that the ship is doomed because of the malfunction that initially woke Jim, and it takes both he and Aurora to fix the ship, to save everyone.

Now before I go any further, it must be pointed out that if Jim had left Aurora in the pod (as the ridiculous PC crowd thinks), he couldn’t have saved the ship on his own.  Everyone, including Aurora, would have died in their sleep.  Keep that in mind.

Jim dies saving the ship, but Aurora uses the crewman’s ID and saves him in medical.  She realizes she loves him and can’t live without him, so she forgives what he did.  Knowing she still wants to live her life with all the others, he tells her that he’s figured out that the pod in medical can also hibernate, and he offers to put her back to sleep.  Aurora decides she doesn’t want to leave Jim, and they live their life on the ship until they die.

The movie ends 88 years later as the crew awakens to discover a changed ship, since Aurora and Jim planted trees and grass and turned the main concourse into a forest. I really enjoyed the movie, but the following things immediately jumped to mind:

  1. Did they have children?  Wouldn’t they? And what happened after those children grew up and survived their parents? Surely they must have procreated and had incestuous children, and those children would have done the same.  The ship would have been infested by possibly brain damaged adults/children.
  2. If they didn’t have children, one of them would have survived the other.  So is his/her rotting body lying somewhere to be found? What if one of them died by drowning or food poisoning? The other would have been stranded on his/her own until death.  The only other way i can think of is that the survivor wouldn’t want to live alone and would have jettisoned his/herself out of the airlock.  Depressing, huh?
  3. What if they fell out of love with each other after a few years? Or 10 or 20?  Would Jim still have been willing to put her into hibernation?  I would think this would have been the most likely scenario. I just don’t believe they were happy until they both died. It isn’t logical.  Or am I being cynical?

The movie makes you think. Well, it should, unless you’re a PC fanatic, then all you can think about is how evil Jim is for waking Aurora.  They demonize him as if he’s a rapist, but he wanted companionship.  She made the first move, and he never forced her to do anything.  But the PC crowd compares her feelings for Jim to Stockholm syndrome. For those who don’t know what that means, it’s how kidnapped people fall for their kidnappers, which is a load of rubbish.  Jim is just as trapped as Aurora is.  She didn’t even really have a purpose. She left her friends behind and planned on going to the new planet and then go back to Earth, so she could write an article about her experiences.  Nothing in her plan really changes. She ends up writing a book about her experiences, which is probably more exciting than what she initially planned. Besides, if Jim didn’t wake her, everyone would have died!

Could the movie have been better?  Possibly, but it’s just pathetic that it didn’t do better because too many ignorant people have bought into the ridiculous notion of being politically correct.  That is the travesty here, not Jim’s decision to wake up Aurora.

I just published a new short story. This time it’s in 2 parts.  I pushed all the politically correct boundaries in this story. It will either piss off everyone or make them laugh. Not sure if it’s a satire or not, and I’m not sure if I should continue it or not.  If I get enough interest, I might, since I have an idea of where I will take it.  If I get time, I might start writing my idea, so it won’t go away. If it turns out well, you’ll know when/if it gets published. For now, enjoy what’s on Smashwords. The first half is free and only 99 cents for the second half.

Be the heroine of your own story

Posted: December 19, 2016 in Erotica

I had an idea this morning, so I’ll share it with you.  How would you like to be the heroine of your own erotic story?  You provide me with your first name and the name of your favorite hero, along with the fantasy plot, and I’ll write you a story.  There is no set length, but it will be at least 2,000 words up to 5,000.  So let me know your fantasy situation, and I’ll write if for you.  What’s the cost?  Let’s start with $1.49 and see how it goes.

I’m still working out how I’ll list it on Smashwords, since they want an actual story.  Maybe I’ll just publish the instructions and contact information and then send finished story to a provided email.

I’ll put some thought into it, so stay tuned.

Worse things than rape

Posted: December 9, 2015 in Smut

I just read some 1 star reviews of my poem, 10 Things Worse than Rape.  For those of you who would like to read them, here is the direct link on Itunes: https://itunes.apple.com/us/book/ten-things-worse-than-rape/id714747294?mt=11

I smiled as I read those negative reviews. Why? Because these ladies are why I wrote the poem to begin with.  Without fail, there will always be some female who thinks that having a dick shoved into her without her express approval is far worse than any other possible horrible outcome.  I will never be able to wrap my mind around a woman who feels this way.  Sex is not the worst thing that can happen.  If the rapist is violent, the beatings or torture would be far worse than the actual rape act.  If you don’t agree, stop thinking your pussy is lined with gold!

I just had some fun reading the reviews on Amazon. Of course I ignored the mindless 5 star reviews from the brainless bimbos who refuse to admit this story is crap, but the 1 star reviews are hilarious and pretty much say what my earlier post stated.  Many are justifiably asking for refunds!

Amazon 1 star reviews for Grey!

Here are my favorites:

“I was so excited about the book. I had to ask for a refund, I already paid once for the story, it’s like she copied the first book, and just changed a few words here and there. ust repeated the same thing.”

Um, were you expecting something else?  Like maybe Midnight Sun by Stephanie Meyer, where you are given a completely new story from a completely new POV?  Nah, I didn’t think so.  LOL

“Boring, boring, boring. This author does not care about her fan base, publishing this book was out of greed.”

EL James, greedy?  No, tell me it aint so!

“Horrible writing, but EL James is going to milk it as long as she can.”

Of course she will, when she has dim witted dip shits adding to her coffers.

“Completely repititous of original book but original book better writen. Added nothing insightful. Made CHristian sound like a whiner. Feel like this was only written to get more money.”

No, really? Tell me it isn’t so.

“I want proof that this is Christian Grey’s POV, because what I’ve read sounds like Anna’s Inner Goddess got snockered on some cheap booze, and possibly some bath salts.”

Proof? On a fictional character’s POV?  Really?

I could go on, but why bother?  It’s still #1 on Amazon, but hopefully that declines soon. This bitch is already richer than Midas thanks to you idiots.  I just can’t…

 

 

 

 

I’m pleased to announce that I have my first author to join the newly formed Blush Erotica Pubs.  Her name is Tress Jolie, and I just published the first part of her first book, Fallen Angel.  Be sure to head over to Smashwords to read the first part for free!

Blush the publisher

Hey there!  I just had a thought after noticing one of my favorite erotic authors on Smashwords is also a publisher.  I think that’s something I can do.  So if you like to write short smut and are too shy to put yourself out there (or just don’t want to give your social security number to anyone), I can publish it for you.  I’ll edit it, design the cover and even publish it on Amazon (in addition to Smashwords and all the bookstores they distribute to), and all I’ll get is 25% of any net sales you bring in.  Since I will be editing and designing the cover (unless you want to make that), I will require exclusivity for a year.

The only catch is that I get final say on what stories I’ll publish under my name.  If I can’t get through it to edit it, then I won’t publish it.  Don’t worry though, it’s rare I can’t finish a story, and I’ve read some doozies. One had anal this and anal that in just about every sentence.  Couldn’t make it through the first chapter.

All I’ll need from you is a paypal account where I can send your monthly earnings (if any), and of course I’ll provide a breakdown of sales. No personal information will be required up front and then only if you make more then $600 in any calendar year. If you still don’t wish to provide a social security number, you can easily apply for an EID (easily get yours now online), which I personally think everyone should have anyway.

There are a few things I won’t even attempt to read, and here they are:

Necrophilia (other than the living dead: vampires, zombie, etc are OK)
Anything to do with crap (literally, that is disgusting)
Sex with children (this isn’t allowed anywhere anyway)
Gratuitous violence and/or gore (remember, this is erotica, not horror fiction)

If I can think of anything else, I’ll add it later.  I’m not including bestiality as a no no, but you do need to realize that it won’t be distributed beyond Smashwords, and I can’t publish it on Amazon. Also note that I deliberately left off gay erotica from the taboo list, since although I don’t like reading or writing it, I know that many people do. So as long as it doesn’t break any of the above rules, hit me with your best shot.
