Peki: /come on guys. What are your worst fears about what goes on in The Ladies' Room?


That the woman are all sharing stories of our inadequate love making, sexual stamina and size before indulging in an epic pillow fight in which boobies pop out left and right and no male eyes get to enjoy?

Admittedly, that might be just me there.

*awkward silence*

Yeah, prolly just me.

Wolf892: stoli n coke: Wolf892: The only thing that terrifies King these days is the prospect of sitting down in front of his computer and writing a satisfying conclusion to one of his novels that doesn't leave the reader feeling they've wasted their time.

And I'm sure he soothes that fear with his giant piles of money and the knowledge that even the fans that biatch about his work the most will still buy the latest installment no matter what.

I haven't liked a lot of the endings of his books, but I'm aware that he doesn't give a shiat.

Oh, and not very good reporting in TFA. He publicly announced he was pulling Rage from the shelves 13 years ago. That's why an original paperback can sell for hundreds of dollars.

I was a fan, then I hit adulthood and wanted something more from my stories...a decent beginning, middle and end. Not books that throw your fandom and devotion back in your face with a sneer that says "It was a giant space spider all along, biatches! What do you think of them apples!"
He's great at creating characters, he's great at telling a story, he just really sucks at ending that story in a way that feels true to the world he's created and leaves us the readers content.


Translation: I never enjoyed a Stephen King book as much as when I was twelve. Christ, does anybody?

stoli n coke: Peki: quatchi: The "Ladies Room" novella concept was sorta interesting but I found King's reasoning for keeping "Rage" out of print the real takeaway

This.

Also, I know how to finish the book: You tell the truth.

Period sprunts.


Sprunt - wasn't that what George Carlin wanted to call his brand of feminine deodorant spray?

Someday I need to go back and re-read the Stand.  It's probably been 15 years since the last time I read it.

Fun fact: when Stephen King started writing Pet Semetary he set out with the goal of creating a story so scary that people wouldn't be able to finish it.  When he was done writing it he held on to the manuscript for an entire year before submitting it to his publisher because he was so disturbed by what he'd written.

That's right; Stephen King managed to scare  himself shiatless.

/loved Stephen King's cameo in Sons of Anarchy.

ask any person who has been an officer cleaner or a janitor and they'll answer "I don't know why they call it the Ladies room". that's the truth.

My worst fear would be walking into the ladies room and walking in on the woman who has been the object of all of my sexual fantasies loudly grunting as she is pinching off a huge stinking terd. And the worst part of it is after she finishes taking a crap she walks out without wiping or washing her hands.


If she didn't wipe then she wouldn't need to wash her hands.
