Madame Arcati: Bye-bye for now

Poppets! Madame Arcati is leaving you for a while. The post just below this explains everything I think. I shall update with my top 20 posts sometime soon. Your comments will go up.

Madame Arcati is not disappearing, however. She will pop up elsewhere from time to time, as will the person who imagines he is me. My thanks for your interest, your contributions, your praise and abuse. A New Moon in Gemini is a good time to move on.

MA x

PS
Especial apologies to two writers due to be interviewed by me: Frances Lynn, for the reissue of her superb novel about '70s excess, Frantic; and to Rupert Smith for his funny, sexy Man's World, in which the gay worlds of the '50s and today somehow converge.

See you soon, sob! (Let's hope I don't have to wear a black armband for long). xx

Alison Cross said...

I'll miss your blog :-(

Will you tell us where we can find the new utterances from Mme A or, indeed, the person who imagines he is you?

Madame Arcati said...

Oh yes, I'll update with my whereabouts - thanks x

J MacFarlane said...

Come back you bitch!

Mrs Trefusis... said...

We faithful will continue to follow.

Madame Arcati said...

Uranus is certainly gagging for it.

You never did do my horoscope. Oh well . . . good luck but resurface in another hat. Many thanks for all your support.

Best, Duncan

Madame Arcati said...

Well I'm not leaving the planet and I can still do your horoscope, the more I learn the better it will be.

I know the feeling. I'm now unemployed because Google shut down the office's advertising (granted, 'The Boss' was shamelessly bending the Adwords rules).

If I had the insight, I'd have nicked the number to directly contact them for you to at least have a bitch at them.

I hope Madame dear you re-group and come back bigger and better..xx

oh, don't go. I've only just found you. Really enjoy the blog.

Here's to a resumption of normal service somewhere else some time soon. x

Duralex said...

I'm not going to lie, this is the umpteenth time you pretend you're leaving. That trick is getting tired. You'll be back soon, Victorino, and so will I. Remember your chimney belongs to me, take care of it! ;-)

Kevin Spacey said...

I am in tears. Where will I read about me now?

It seems as if Madame Arcati has done a Stephen Fry and 'spat the dummy'.
Perhaps next time you could have less pictures of naked mens cocks. We understand you have an inclanation in that direction, but your blog was in danger of turning into the pink version of Nuts magazine... understandaable if you were a spotty youth but at your age...
Good luck in your next reincarnation.... for some reason I think you'll return as a crusty old mans cock in your next life.

Madame Arcati said...

Thank you Duralex. I am leaving Google/Blogger and it is quite likely Madame Aracti will appear elsewhere - on another service (in time) and on other sites. I'll keep people posted here whenever MA pops up.

Madame Arcati said...

Oh Kevin, mop your tears. Thank you for being grist to my mill. Truth to tell, the only film you've appeared in that I enjoyed was Austin Powers. Stick to comedy. It's your forte.

Mwah!

Madame Arcati said...

Actually, cocks appeared very rarely on Madame Arcati. 99% of the time you had oceans of words to wade through, some of the cock-cocking variety admittedly. Whenever a cock appeared it was either to promote some person's work or to have a laugh. Cock and porn are the lingua franca of the internet: do keep up!

Aw Robin Tamblyn, you're found out! As a matter of fact there's no place you can be read about other than Arcati's blog, poor baby.

Madame Arcati said...

I think we can agree there was a lot on Madame Arcati you didn't read elsewhere.

Makes a change from reading about Cheryl Cole's latest brazilian dunnit?

The problem here is your own temperament. You easily fly off the handle and are stormy - I've heard this about you from others. YOU ARE A TOTAL NIGHTMARE!!

Madame Arcati said...

No, I don't tolerate nonsense. Simples.

"No, I don't tolerate nonsense."

Mwahaha, priceless. You tolerate your own nonsense perfectly.

Madame Arcati said...

So, that's why you're here is it?

Madame Arcati really is one of the best blogs. It would be a great shame just to let it go. Most of the newspaper blogs are so stately and rigid. The pieces are just reports or think-pieces whereas you, Madame, know how to do blog. Is my cheque in the post?

Oh Madame - how very sad. I came to you via a link from the matchless Cleopatra's Wedding Present (many years ago) and it has been anonymous coupling by the bins ever since. You gave me Fallowell's magically nostalgic Noto and I gave you a bio-engineered manga catamite.

Its been very romantic, and though I have met your corporeal inacarntion socially I prefer to be discrete. An anonymous reputation is all a girl has these days.

Thank you Steph - you are right. See the latest posting. Come on over when you're ready xx
