Stuff (tm)

I've had very little to report, but now that I've built up a bunch of that very little, I can make a substantial post.

Kicked off my Only-Horror October (see my last post) fine, but haven't had a guest over yet, which is kinda lonely, but then again, I'm an introvert, so it's okay. Posted a lot of quick reviews to all of them on my Letterboxd. Have watched two 5-star films. The Gate, which I don't watch every year, but is my all-time favourite horror movie, and oh my shit, Tucker & Dale vs. Evil is AWESOME. Never saw it til last night :)
I have skipped a couple of scheduled films, which I will get to at a later date. Right now, I'm caught up, except for The Dead Inside (a favourite, which I'm waiting on Charles to watch), Slugs, which I probably won't watch, but who knows, and the original Funny Games, and Evil, which are both foreign, and I wasn't in the mood for subtitles last night (after trudging through The Nameless, which was just awful).

This conversation happened:

Sunday, I lugged two extremely heavy and full trunks (as well as a bunch of other stuff) down my stairs, into the car, up the stairs at Vertex (the goth club), and set up shop for the night at the Gothic Garage Sale flea-market event. I stole the space next to mine when no one claimed it, because I had a LOT of stuff. I made $90, but after paying Charles back for last week's music lesson, and buying a couple of drinks, my total profit came to about $40. Still good though!

I don't know if every city has a First Friday event, but Rochester's art galleries and such have a public art crawl called First Friday. I've been to one, but I didn't count it because it was also the opening of a gallery exhibit I had some art in. I hadn't remembered til it was too late since.
Ron invited me out this time, picked me up (he finally remembered how to get to my house), and we had a really nice time (I'm also pretty happy, because I thought he was starting to forget I exist, because our usual Tuesdays are no longer since working nights. So having him ask me was a nice turn).
We went to the Village Gate for a gallery event for one of his friends, who had her art all hanging in a doctor's office! We meandered a bit, explored dark crevices on the third floor (where we actually found a hidden event, which Ron ended up going to on Sunday). Then we scooted next door to Anderson Alley, which I haven't been to since it was a fabric factory. Hung out in a printing press for a long time, then went off to a sweltering embossing room, where Ron, inventor and engineer, chatted up with one of the guys, while I ran into Brendan, Casey, and a couple other friends. Then Ron took me up to Nosferatu Studios where I fell in love instantly.
We ended the evening at Starry Night cafe, just chewin' the fat out at a table. It's been such a long time since I got to really sit and talk to Ron, just us, so I don't get drowned out in the cluster of people talking over me, and it was so nice, and I'm really happy he invited me out. I needed that.

And everyone and their brother has been posting to my FB wall, or texting me about the return of Twin Peaks. I only needed to hear it once, guys ;)

A profit of $40 at a flea-market isn't too bad! A Gothic flea-market sounds like it would be right up my alley. I wish we had stuff like that nearby.

Your First Friday adventure sounds like it was a lot of fun, I'm glad you finally got to spend some time with Ron, it sounds like you really needed that.

You could host a Gothic Swap if there's nowhere to host a flea-market :D
I did a clothing swap ages ago, and ended up with a few of my favourite pieces, then at the end of the day, I bagged what was left and tossed it at the nearest second-hand shop. I was glad to get rid of what I did :)

Gothic flea market sounds good - I wish we had that here. I have tons of stuff I have to get rid of
Actually I just packed up 2 dresses and a couple of blouses/shirts for my cousin who is 2 sizes smaller than I am ... and a Goth as well ... so ... all is good!

You should host a swap :D I've done clothing swaps where everything's free, and have gone to swaps where you can make an offer on some things if you're having a hard time letting them go ;)
