Links and Happy Gossip

And now, from the Department of Making You Click Links, we have… links.

From Walt and his cuppa: a link that will make you feel dirty even as you keep scrolllling to look for more: a blogspot gallery of David Kawena’s illustrations of Disney heroes in their undergarments. Note: Not entirely work safe – the images or the main image of the blog itself. There’s also a Deviant Art gallery that requires a login. Is it wrong of me to think Prince Eric is stare-worthy? Because I’m ashamed of myself but I’m not entirely sure I want to be right.

From a blog detailing the trials and tribulations of your local Big Book store employee, scroll to the end for the Romestern Times game. Pick up a romance novel title, and pick a western novel title: “I guarantee that 75% of the time, you won’t be able to tell which is a Romance and which is a Western.

As Romances are geared predominantly towards women and Westerns predominantly towards men, I guess we can see that there probably isn’t much of a difference anyway between the sexes.”

Ha!

And finally, you want some nice post-RT news? As I caught a cab out of Pittsburgh, the cab driver asked if I was a writer. Nope, I said. Just evil press.

Book CoverWhy did he ask? Seems he gave a ride to one author by the name of Lori Andrews, and he was so impressed with her, he can’t stop talking about it. Seems Ms. Andrews and the driver, Mr. Williams, had a lovely conversation on the way to the Hilton, and he is now telling everyone he knows about her book. He had a signed copy of her latest in the cab with him, and at every spare moment he’s reading a page or two. Yet another example of kind manners equaling good press – he’s telling everyone in greater Pittsburgh about Ms. Andrews’ book, and can’t say enough about how her writing scares the crap out of him.

    What an adorable story about the cabbie! I wonder if she’s just created a new romance fan…

    I’ve seen (accidentally, I swear!) some of that Disney porn stuff before, the best(?) being Jasmine from Aladdin with the genie forming, um, a “toy”… My poor, poor childhood.

    Aladdin…rowr!

    Re: the man who wanted to talk to the manager…

    People get crazier every day. But what was the personal matter? I guess, since the manager was apparently a woman, he wouldn’t say, and we’ll never know. Possibly he wanted B&N;to stop stocking books written by women.

    I’ve seen the Disney pics before.  I’m more along the lines of Sitka, David, Kocuum.

    *G* Love the cabby story.

    That story about the cabbie is great.

    And, not that I make a habit of noticing these things, but did anyone else think that of all the Disney heroes, Hercules was the one with the most muscles and the least prominent package? It’s just like in real life!
    Stay off the juice, boys. ;)

    Awesome. Disney. Pics. Mmmmmmmm. I was always in love with Prince Philip and Shang, though I may have to add Prince Eric now too. Thank you for cheering up my morning!

    I don’t have to have seen Atlantas to ogle Milo, right?

    Wonderful PR for Lori Andrews! Never underestimate the power of a good giveaway. Thanks for a nice report from RT.

    And as for the Disney hunks, perhaps I’d better give cartoons another chance…

    Wow, I wish more authors would have taken a page from the “be polite to others, it’s good publicity” book.  This RT was like… the conference of “DO YOU KNOW WHO I AM??!!”

    *G*  Main thing I noticed about Hercules was that it looked like he was checking to see if he remembered deodorant.

    Damn Disney Pr0n!  I have a meeting to go to!

    spamword: boy43…I could look at 43 more pics of those Disney boys, sure!

    One Prince Phillip and one Milo Thatch to go, please.

    What?  Y’all know you were thinking it.

    Ri L. says:

    I’ve seen those!  I love David Kawena’s work.  Who knew conservative, clean-cut Prince Philip could be so hot?

    Me, I’m waiting for him to draw human-Beast in his undies.  I’ll take one of those, please.

    (spam word: became62.  I hope not, I like being young :()

    Love the cabbie story, and love the *ahem* pr0n *grin* but then, I’ve always had it for both Milo and Aladdin.

    Is it sad I’ve seen David Kawena’s pictures before?

    Hmm, now I want to read a Lori Andrews.

    Disney guys~David and Sitka are more my type.  My father-in-law’s name is John Smith so I skipped right over that one LOLOLOL

    The cabbie story is great. Being kind makes more of an impression than anything else. I’ve never read her, but after reading this story, I’m off to hunt down some books by her!

    As Disney porn goes, actually relatively tasteful. (That blog banner ain’t, though! :o )

    There is nothing to be ashamed of in thinking Eric is a total hottie because he is!  Dark hair, blue/green eyes?  Yes, please.

    That being said, Aladdin is also a total cutie although as far as personalities go, the Beast is my favourite.  However, I probably wouldn’t recognise him in his human shape and I, er, would rather not see him in his Beast form in his underwear.

    Disney porn!  Oh my loving gods, I had NO IDEA. Like a dummie, I went and googled it, and now must BLEACH MY EYES!  Not to mention scrub my browser history.

    The manga! The superheroes! The flipping CARTOON CHARACTERS!  That Bart and Lisa Simpson stuff was just disturbing.  Seriously, seriously disturbing.  I may never watch The Simpsons again.

    thats53: Yup, that’s about 53 minutes of my life that I wish I could erase.  (Yeah, it was horrifically mesmermizing, I couldn’t look away…)

    Oh my…how delicious is Eric?

    The Little Mermaid was always my favorite Disney movie as a kid…Oooh…I must to back and look at those pics…

    You’d think they’d be trying to hunt that stuff down, instead of daycares that use Pooh on their walls. . . but what do I know.  :D

    OMG….so a little digging about Deviantart yielded cheesecake/beefcake photos of Disney villains (different artist):

    Cruella deVil

    Gaston

    Captain Hook

    MY BRAIN KIND OF HURTS NOW.

    I like Hercules’ pose, really. He’s posed like some of that Greek artwork. (Seen on pots and things in the actual movie. Heh)

    (Captcha: Kind86. JJ was NOT KIND for killing my happy place.)

    No No No…  No one should see Milo from Atlantis in his undies.  *shivers*  Its just creepy.

    Hell, my eyes hurt.  I think I’m scarred for life.  Shudder.

    That’s what I was thinking. They’re so bloody fanatical about protecting their trademark. I can’t imagine that they don’t know about this. >>>shrugs< <<

    Re: David Kawena

    I’ve been worshiping at his altar for months, my dear. I’m one of the insane fans demanding he make with the Prince Adam (Beauty & The Beast)

    I also highly recommend Brianna Garcia @ http://bri-chan.deviantart.com/—no beefcake, but she has this great little Disney romance between an older Alice and a younger (and better looking) Mad Hatter that has a HUGE following.

    Deviantart can be a gift from God sometimes.

    I like the John Smith one.  But why does he have a ferret in his pants?

    In other news…

    Dayum, David is packin’.

    Is it a black footed ferret?

    Now why are Posers considered so hot in this context yet so unhot on book covers?  (Maybe I could come up with an answer if I felt like thinking about it, but I don’t.)
