Frustration Loves Company

I'm obviously not the only one with title issues. This is from ANSIBLE, a scifi e-newsletter:

The tile of "SIMON R. GREEN's latest novel had to be changed: 'It was originally called JUST ANOTHER DAMNED HERO, but the publishers said it couldn't be called that, because none of the book chains in the US would accept a book title that had the word "damned" in it. Really. In this day and age. So, the book now has a new title: JUST ANOTHER JUDGEMENT DAY.' Perhaps THIS is why Tim LaHaye's 'Left Behind' series wasn't rapturously entitled 'You're All Damned, Ha Ha, Except For Some Of My
Buddies.' "

Thanks to Sphinx Ink for the above tidbit.

And you'll have to pardon me over the next few days as I adjust to my new computer. I finally gave up on my old Apple and took the plunge on a new one. Not only does this one do what it's supposed to do and refrain from doing what it's not supposed to do, but certain features (such as, ahem, iTunes) work only too well!

Lately, I've found Youtube my personal bane.

Enjoy the shiny new Apple! Particularly for those of us foolish enough to still be using PCs. <:(

Just thinking about your title again...

How bout 'What Sorrow's Grave' from King Richard II: I, iv

"To counterfeit oppression of such grief/ That words seem'd buried in my sorrow's grave."

Or maybe "What Graven Right" from King Richard III: IV, iv
"Where should be graven, if that right were right/ The slaughter of the prince that owed that crown"

Notice I (wisely?) shied from "What Graven Slaughter"...

I kind of liked grave/graven, on account of the two connotations: marked and death...
