nightdog_barks: (Glass Full of Rain)

We FINALLY got some decent rain early this morning, along with lots of thunder and lightning. Now it is partly sunny and not too bad.

Stayed up way too late last night when I noticed TCM was showing Eraserhead and I watched the first 30 or so minutes of it. Have any of you guys ever seen it? It's certainly ... um. I mean, I did think some of it was actually funny, like at the beginning when Henry (Jack Nance) is in his apartment and there's dead ... plants/ivy/vegetable matter all over the place, and he looks straight into the camera like, "You see what I have to live with." I stayed with it until the first scene with Mutant Baby and then I went to bed (it was about 1:30 in the morning).

Does anyone recognize either/both of these two Housefics? The second one (hiding in rafters watching funeral) sounds vaguely familiar to me but I can't place it ...

EDITED TO ADD ... One fic found, one fic ... well, maybe. Are you out there, [personal profile] verbal_kint? See comments on this post for details, thanks to [personal profile] menolly_au. :D

Have been reading Jay McInerney's Brightness Falls. It is set in 1987, which seems like a lifetime ago and another world. McInerney doesn't appear to believe in consistent question marks, though, because there are many many sentences like this -- "Who is this person," Russell asked Donna. But there are other sentences where people are asking questions, AND THERE ARE QUESTION MARKS. I don't know. It's just an annoying tic in an otherwise good book.

The hiding in the rafters one I remember - I think it might have been one of Jezziejays? The other one I've bound to have read but no idea what it was called.

Went to look for her journal and apparently I missed a post saying she was deleting all the stories :( There's 5 on DW but its not one of those.

I think you're thinking of the one by Verbal Kint (??) - four of them in an accident and I think Wilson went for help even though he was badly injured (and concealing it, the noble idiot).

I've read quite a few 'house has his leg amputated' fics but you'd think I'd remember one where Wilson did the deed!

I think it might have been Wednesday's Child looking through the tags on LJ House-Wilson but I could be on the wrong track entirely.

Now I sort of want to read that other fic :)

Well I cheated by going to her tag on the comm and looking for post series fic :) But the one I found on the comm was Wednesday's child ( so I don't know!
