Too cool for Poppy Z. Brite

Could this be the apotheosis of LiveJournal drama? Seminal teen-angst vampire-novel author Poppy Z. Brite kicked out of LiveJournal group, presumably because the moderator wanted the honour of smacking her down. Champagne comedy, folks. (via bOING bOING)

(I didn't even know Poppy Z. Brite had a LiveJournal; though, in retrospect, it'd be more surprising if she didn't have one. Which makes me wonder: does Trent Reznor have one?)

She writes about seminal teen-angst.

Ah. She sounds like an idoru to me.

She lives in New Orleans and writes novels about vampires, alienation, angst and embracing your inner darkness, i.e., all the stuff that sells to sullen teens who buy their clothes at Hot Topic. She was something like the Original Teeny-Goth Novelist, followed by ranks of Professional Goths like Caitlin Kiernan and others. To this day, the only decent writer with "Goth" on his business cards is Warren Ellis.

You'd hope that name was intentionally pretend ironic.
