Really, it’s been a quiet week. Snow, storm, stressed out horses, not much to do except feed them, make sure their clothes are warm enough and feed them some more. Add to that, I have not spoken much to Noel Heart, http://noelheartpoet.wordpress.com/ my online friend that usually keeps me up at night, because we have both been sick and none of us have been online much.
Actually, turning off the computer while I had a fever, kind of felt a bit like a relief. No messages on face book, no notifications on my blog, at least not many, because I haven’t been reading much of what others have been writing- sorry, I will catch up soon- only the ever annoying email inbox have with filling up every day. Yes, it has been quiet, and I’ve liked it. I did mention that I am not a social person, right, and even online company is sometimes too much for me?
Anyway, Noel came back online last night, and so did I, mostly because I was editing the Danish version of The Twins and I find myself looking a lot of words up on Google Translate, not so much because I don’t know what they mean, but mostly because I need other ways to translate them, and my mind just goes blank and screams the English word in my face… Yep, I am having a really hard time thinking in two languages, but well, here I was, back online, and we caught up.
First off, it never stops being amusing with the HIM management and the street teams. I mean, seriously.
Is it two days ago? Anyway, some new pictures were released of Ville Valo. Awesome, all the HIM street teamers jumped on them, spread them around and tried their very best to promote the band. Then the official message came from management that the pictures needed to be erased, because they were not meant to be released in this manner. I was almost rolling on the floor laughing when I saw it.
I mean, come on. Really? Do you think that you can recall online photos? Forget it guys, they are OUT, everyone is sharing them, copying them, saving them. Everyone that is, except the street teams. We deleted them, like the good little fans we are.
Then Noel and I came to talking about fans and Ville’s girl friend and had a really good time with that. There are so many rumors at the moment, and really, everyone is waiting for Ville to declare where he stands. If I had been management, I would have made sure he did, because it could easily spin out of hand at some point.
You see, most of the HIM fans are teenage girls and they do not like it that Ville has a girl friend. I mean, how dare he, doesn’t he know that he was supposed to marry every single one of them, once they grew up? Some of them are openly declaring that they don’t like her and that they won’t buy the new album as long as he is with her.
I love that kind of reasoning. Well, don’t then. Buhu.
And at the same time, my wicked little mind are working over time, slapping my hands off the keyboard, not to point out that Ville has not said once that they are actually dating, and that if you look him up online, you can find the first ten pictures (and videos) of him kissing other men, but not one single snap shot of him and a woman. I’m not saying that he is gay, really, but Noel and I had a good time discussing that as well, last night, mostly because if all of the teenage fans are freaking out that he might have a girl friend, how on earth would they respond then, if he was gay?
By kicking and screaming online and not buying the album?
As funny as it is, and it really is, at least when you are sitting up at three am, messaging back and forth on face book, it is mostly just sad. For me, HIM was always about the music. I was a teenage girl as well, when I first became a fan, way back in 1999, but back then, Ville had an official girl friend, and well… It never mattered to me.
Since when did idols lose their right to a personal life? Or is it only amongst the HIM’sters? Because if it is, I might be too old to be one of them by now. No, wait, I think I was born too old for that kind of drama. That’s why I prefer horses, I guess. Really, they don’t care if I buy Tears on Tape once it’s released, no matter who Ville is currently sleeping with.
Okay, I didn’t mean for this post to go this way. What I keep getting impressed by is how much I miss talking to Noel when we go offline for a while. How much I miss our crazy little conversations and the way her mind works, always at the same wavelength as me. I guess I might be a bit more social than I thought I was…
I must mention that I have not been completely signed out even if I was sick lately. I have almost edited my way through the Danish version of The Twins now, missing about ten pages. I am teaching my sister to watch Doctor Who- mostly by introducing her to Capitan Jack Harkness, the easiest way ever to get any girl to watch anything, and she is now very busy watching Torchwood. I am so proud of her. And I have been wasting a lot of hours, watching Battlestar Galatica, because my boyfriend thought I should learn a bit more about Sci-fi if I was going to write in that genre next. I am still considering it.
I mean, I have to write something, I am going crazy without my stories, without the private world in my head I can always escape to whenever I have a free second, so why not Sci-fi? That would be new and challenging for me, that should keep my mind busy for a while right? So far I am not blown away by Battlestar though, but I am learning a lot. A lot of what I won’t be doing in my story. I guess that has value to.
Anyway, sort of pointless post, sorry, what I am really doing is avoiding my bike and the snow storm for a little while longer, by writing this… I am sure the horses have not eaten all their hay yet… I can stay in for a little while longer…
Won’t spring ever come? Say please?
