I'm guessing from today's Google homepage that it's Vincent Van Gogh's birthday. This affords me a perfect opportunity to put in a plug for my personal favorite, tragically under-recognized, Van Gogh painting: Boots With Laces.


I used to have a print of this hanging in my bedroom as a sort of holy icon for my personal religion of old, dirty, well-worn boots. Let us all now take a moment to gaze reverently upon the painting and think, God damn that is some fucked-up footwear.

As a final note, I'm boycotting Michele's page today because she has a massive, unavoidable, first-thing-to-load-on-the-page porn picture at the top of today's entry. I'd otherwise like to comment on the entry, but can't because every time I try to load the comments page it comes up with the porn (rather than the comments) front and center and I panic and close the window. Therefore I present the comments section of this entry as an alternate location for discussion relating to Michele's post.

gene, can't you make it so when people click on nyataimori in the comments section it goes to the last comment made instead of the top of the page? some people's webpages do that. why not mine? i'll try to figure it out for myself too.

It's a discrepancy in the mt 2.x and 3.x templates.

I've modified Michele's "Individual Entry Archive" template changeing :


to :

"> " />

Notice the rouge letter c that's screwing things up. I checked the current default temlpates over at sixapart's website and the "c" is present so it must be there for a reason.

cursed rogue c!

thanks gene.

So, all I can think is that the CH members basically use some sort of color coded template editor.

Or does Gene not mean "rouge c" literally?

Quite frankly, like he said.

Rouge C! The C is wearing makeup. Perhaps it's cross-dressing, trying to look like some fancy variant on C. The Frenchy C in "Francois", perhaps.

The lipstick C is a different matter entirely. It's attracted to other Cs, but sees that as no reason not to dress in typical feminine C style.

I can't spell worth shit
Rogue C

Rogue : adj. Operating outside normal or desirable controls.

I think I liked the rouge C better. Can I have a special feature where adding color to my templates make them act differently?
