Knowing me now, and in the future

Yes, as regular readers will know, every so often I read a story that inspires me to blog about it, or the concept of it at least. And yes, today was one of those days. A link to the story

Oh, by the way, for those concerned, the mind control is only hypnosis, and the concept its used for, is just so sweet. Fine, if you want to read the story, without knowing the plot, go do so now!

OK, you’re back?

No, I’ve never met myself from my future, as far as I know, and given my age, I dont think its going to happen now! Pretty sure I havent got 30 years left, and I certainly hope thats the case at present, the way things are. But yes, it might have been interesting, had it happened when I was younger, and could have moved things along in a different way, if I’d had the choice. And fine, re the story, let me add that I’m no fan of piercings (beyond ears, once), and despite having one small one, not a big fan of tattoos either.

But in terms of looking back/forward at how lesbian relationships were looked upon, and events, even happening now, it makes an interesting historical piece. If anyone from the future had told me, at the beginning/middle of the 80’s, that single sex marriage would be legal, I’d have laughed at them. But here we are now, and…

In terms of myself, my only other voice I’ve heard, was the one from the past, and that technically wasnt me, it was my past life. But as was said at the time, her voice was so different to mine, it was quite amazing. Yes, sweet little Clara Johnson. But of course, I couldnt talk to her at the time, unlike Jessica in the story.

I’ve never yet, considered getting Clara, and her modern day self, CJ, to meet in one of my stories, I just feel that would be a little too weird, for all involved! Mainly because, despite all the crazy things she’s done, CJ has not yet done any time travelling! And fine, given my attachment to both, I’m pretty sure I’d struggle to write a scene with both of them in, anyway!

But yes, I wonder what we would do, if in our early twenties, we could meet ourselves, in our early fifties, and maybe change our lives for the better? Possibly its best that its only fiction!

The video, well, knowing me, knowing me, isnt a song title, so this is as close as I could get!

Heading into the future, for all we know

So fine, I might be exaggerating slightly, but strictly, I head into the future tonight, when the clocks jump forward an hour, for British Summer time. I know, all my American readers (and there are seemingly a few), went through this leap a fortnight ago, but this is the weekend that Europe catches up with you. At least I can stop trying to adjust my natural thinking as to how far behind me, various parts of the US are. Fine, in the end, we will also put the clocks back, before you do, but thats 7 months off, at present. So for now…

Ironically, last autumn, I missed out on getting my hour back, given I was in the US when Europe put the clocks back, but was in Europe, before the US followed suit! So yes, I feel a bit robbed, in that sense! No wonder I still feel tired lol.

Of course, putting the clocks forward one hour, is hardly heading into the future, in a literal sense at least. Strictly, it is time travel, but on a more serious basis…Yes, its not going to get me any cute little space craft to travel in, or develop the technology to turn me into a robot, by going forward one hour, so… Oh, talking of cute space craft, I’d love one of these

CJ and Todd

So, if anyone has one laying around…? No, thought not! 😛 Or has the ability to make me look like this?

gort

Ah well…

Yes, fine, if the opportunity arises to not put the clocks back until November, or I can manage to miss out on my hour again, I wouldnt say no. But as things stand at present, I cant see it happening, but a girl can dream, at least?

Funnily enough, this afternoon, I was writing a little time travel story, with travel from the 1930’s, right through to the 2060’s! Somehow I suspect my vision of life, 50 years from now, will be hopelessly wrong. Thankfully, I wont be around by then, to find out!

OK, the video. What does the future actually hold, beyond a one hour jump forward tonight. For all we know, it could be anything

This blog has been kidnapped!

OK, fine, before I let someone else take over for 1 night (Yes, I know, but I have news they need to know!), just one quick piece of news. Yes, I’m beginning to feel better at long last, and seemingly solid food is beginning to stay down, without issue, so fingers crossed, tomorrow, I should be back to normal. However, I requested the interview to be delayed, as I wouldnt have been at my best (even more so, after a 70 minute bus ride, and 20 minute walk), and the firm concerned have graciously put it back till Monday afternoon, so…

Ow! Ouch! Leave me alone, you can have the computer now, OK? Right, as mentioned, you have a special guest writer tonight, so I’d better let her get on with it!

……………………

“Right, fine. How do I use this weird looking type writer then? Oh, right, like that, and when I’ve finished, you’ll do the clever stuff? OK! Fine, fine, I’ll do the mind meld later, as promised!” 😀 “Yes, and if Boris Karloff can get that weird machine of his to work, look just like me too!”

Hi there, modern day gentlemen, and ladies, my name’s Harlean, but you know me better by another name, Jean. Ring a bell around here, or six, maybe? 😉 Yes, I’m here today to mention that its my birthday today, March 3. Not looking bad for 105, if I say so myself. Alright, fine, if you’re being fussy, I know, I died 79 years ago, but where’s the excitement in that?

Yeah, time travel. I know Myrna (Loy) and Clara (Bow) said not to mention it, but hey I’ve got to explain how I’m able to use this computer thingy, anyway. Besides which, the amount of times Clara, and Brooksie, have had their pictures taken, using their cell phones, sheesh! Bill (Powell) has told me not to say anything nasty about Louis B (Mayer), and being I’m a good girl, fine by me.

Alright, if anyone had told me back in the 1930’s, that I’d still be amazingly popular 80 years on, I’d have laughed at them, I wasnt that great an actress, surely? But yeah, fine, its nice to know, all the same, thanks so much. 🙂

Right, lastly, before I let that boring, modern day person take her blog back over, lets kill off a few silly rumors.

1. My Mother did not stop Doctors, or Nurses seeing me in my dying days, she just didnt trust the ones that Mr Mayer wanted to use, and I dont blame her for that. Oh, and if they had worked out what was wrong with me earlier, no change, nothing could be done for kidney failure back then. 10 years or so later, yes, maybe, but back then, no chance.
2. My kidney issues did not relate to the bleaching/coloring of my hair, being beaten by anyone (nope, not done), or any of the other silly stuff suggested. I got scarlet fever as a teenager, and that caused issues with my kidneys, though no one knew it. Might have been fine, if I hadnt smoked heavily, had a drink, or six, but given I did…they gave up the fight!
3. The real me, was the one you see in the later movies, not the wild sex tiger, of the pre code days. Yes, fine, it was fun (at times) playing those sort of roles, but important word, play. Yes, fine, I wasnt ashamed of my body, and I might not have been a virginal angel between relationships, but at other times…
4. Yeah, those 60’s biog movies they made of me. Sheesh, pure fiction! Yeah, Bill got hold of a copy, and we spent the night wondering who they were based on, sure wasnt me. Laugh, you bet we did! There’s a good, but hard to get one, written not so long ago, by a guy called David Stenn, thats accurate at least! Maybe you can find it online, if nothing else?

Oh right, I’m told I have to put up a video. You’re not going to like this, its me, singing. Yeah, fine, wasnt my strong point, not that I was a great dancer either, but anyway… So you might want to be brave, or you might want to pass on this.

Yeah, sorry, normal, boring service will be resumed on this blog now, I’m afraid. Who knows, 1 year from now, I might bully her off here again! 😀

Bye! Jean xxx

If I could turn back time

I suppose one of the more interesting (in a sense) events that have come out of the internet era, are some of the crazy theories doing the rounds.

And no, I dont mean things like whether we actually went to the moon, or not (we did), I mean things dating far further back than that. There are several videos on You Tube (find them for yourself, if you care), which supposedly show modern gadgets being used in the late 1920’s, and claiming this as proof of time travel. Fine, it has to be said that I’ve seen pictures of Clara Bow, and Louise Brooks with something in their hand that really does look like a modern mobile phone, but I assume is just a compact, or makeup mirror? I mean, the biggest issue, even if they were time travelling back then, is how they got these devices to work in 1929? I mean, yes, there were dozens of cell phone transmitters back then, not!

All the same, I admit it, yesterday I wrote a story that played very much to that theory, telling the tale of how they ‘supposedly’ got their pieces of modern technology. Yes, folks, pure fiction! I know, I know, the pictures suggest maybe, but seriously…?

Mind, having said that, if Twitter is anything to go by, a good number of silent era, and 30’s movies stars are time travelling, and using Twitter as social media. I know, I have a Harlean Carpenter (Jean Harlow) account on Facebook, but I use it as much to have Jean as a time hopping character, as much as for just focusing on her short life. Oh, and given what I write, it enables me to hide, to some degree, some of my personal kinks. Mind, given Jean’s attitude to sex, she might have enjoyed them, if she was alive now…no, not getting into that!

Gable, Lombard, and a few others are seemingly all active on Twitter, but if you asked me my favorite of those types of account, its an actress whose peak was from well before the Harlow era, Lillian Gish. Yes, I know, she lived to 100, did she have some special trick, or…? But seriously, if you’re on Twitter, and you know anything about silent movies, go follow @MsLillianGish there. She is just wonderful! Though Marion Davies (as far as I know, not on Twitter) gets some flak from her, I think its just good banter between the 2, somewhere in the mists of time.

Fine, the video. Really big clue in the blog title!

Its up!

No, not my skirt a la Marilyn Monroe, the book, darlings! Just follow the link in the previous posting. It is also up at Amazon, and Barnes and Noble, if you prefer those outlets.

I’m not expecting the profits to pay for my next trip to the US, but a few sales would be nice, and might inspire me to write something new while I’m away. Assuming you want something new of course, lol?

A hint to the tale, well, this video is a good one, even if this is more of a planned trip than the one in my book

Seriously, if this was real, I would so be booking up for that venture! Of course, if someone wants to treat me… Mind, some might want to make it a one way trip lol!

Beyond that, just a quick note to say that its going to be a week or so until the next posting, due to work, dont think I’ve deserted you or anything. Should be 1 more from the UK (at least), and then it will be ‘Letters from America’ again for a while.

Really looking forward to seeing Kate again, and the fun that will ensue.

If I Could Turn Back Time

Yes, at least half of the planned story postings have happened this weekend, the 2 short pieces have appeared on the latest EMCSA update. The 2 for ebooks that require far more work to get them posted, doesnt look like it will happen at this point. 😦 I think I’ve got most things done apart from that though (3 more stories on the update, and I’ll be relatively happy), so not a total blowout.

Oh, and why am I trying to plough through so much reading, simple, am having my hair done Tuesday morning, and my nails done in the afternoon, so that will kill off my free time for the day pretty well. No, nothing dramatic, just a lot more blonde than at present after highlights done, and a bit shorter, but not Louise Brooks short, I’m too butch for that look! I get one or two comments/sniggers about looking like a guy with shoulder length hair as it is. If I got a short bob look…! facepalm!

Funnily enough, both sets of stories include one that involves a genre thats rarely used in mind control stories, time travel. No, I dont know why, and time stop doesnt seem to be used either, but lets face it, neither are more fictional than mind controlled sex slaves, and people being turned into robots! Oh, what?…Ah well, lol! 😛

And yes, alright, both pieces of time travel involve the 1920’s, though the ebook version is only travel in a dream, not reality. The EMCSA one, thats for real lol! One I used as a play on history, the serum run to Nome in 1925, the other was simply to give me an option to play with someone who might be Louise Brooks! Thats the one you can find here

http://192.155.80.152/SoftwareBlunders/SoftwareBlunders2.html

Yes, well alright, sue me, but its fun to imagine… 😉 Mind, I have no idea of the reality of life in the 20’s, just gaining my knowledge from words and images of that era, thats all. No, I dont think anyone from now could really fit that seamlessly into a 1920’s lifestyle, but who knows until you try it?

Me, I’d love to find a hypnotist who could put me in a trance like state where I am a 20’s flapper girl, but lets face it, not likely to happen. Maybe not to stay that way, but…might not be too bad if I could still have internet lol!

Right, the video, clue is in the title, though many may not know the song,
