I have no idea why there is a smiling face where an 8 should be! LOL!
It has been crazy in the world of writing and interviews. Due to the upcoming holidays, I will not be posting until after. I hope all of ya'll have a wonderful time! Don't drink too much booze!
I have to admi...Read Full Post »

There are a whole lot of books about writing out there. I know, I've bought enough of them over the years. A quick glance of my shelves reveals in the region of a dozen and that fails to take in to consideration the ones that were so bad they went swiftly in the direction of the nearest charity book shop.
Now, as you know if you follow my blog contributions, I like to concentrate on being positive so I'm going to point out the ones I have found useful and show the wear and t...Read Full Post »

A few thoughts on some recent movies I've watched, and also a couple of old reviews as well....
(My rating system, *-- excrement, not worth even reviewing usually; **-- not especially good, has many flaws but perhaps worth a watch; ***-- a good film that works on most levels; ****-- truly admirable inspiring work, involves the viewer in something utterly unique and mesmerizing on multiple levels, a classic... fractions are also implemented to suggest in between grades)...Read Full Post »

Ya'll will never know how excited I was to find out from Beverly Randolph that she would do an interview for my site! She is really a sweet lady to take time out of her schedule! So, what are we waiting for? Let's see what went on in and out of the set of Return of the Living Dead.
I was 15 when Return of the Living Dead came out. Needless to say I had my ways of getting into the movie and loved every second of it! What is your reaction to how many fans you have and...Read Full Post »

Do you remember when those really low-budget campy horror films were actually good? I absolutely love most of them. There was just something about these films that were fun to watch. The bad acting with the awful effects were just the icing on the cake. Below I discuss two of my favorites, but trust me, I have so many more that are proudly displayed in my collection.

I had been commenting for the past couple of days regarding political strategies, propaganda, myths, lies and power-brokering - yes, a typical couple of days for this erstwhile philosopher. Sometimes the writing process which can be quite technical when it is assignment-driven can take on another life of its own, one whereby one key notion can be drawn and expanded upon not just by the writer but hopefully by others many times over.
Ego was a word that came to min...Read Full Post »

If you went by the words of a notable betting company advertisement 'It matters more when there's money on it'. But can the same be said of this writing lark?
Obviously it must be a great feeling when someone is so taken by your words that they will thrust cold hard cash into your hand but It isn't the reason you put them down on paper in the first place.
You probably already spotted the word 'must' there didn't you? I'm still waiting to experience that par...Read Full Post »

Is this man the scariest person alive? He could very well be. Don't believe me? Allow me to produce some evidence:
1) He is one third of the League of Gentlemen. Not only was the League one of the funniest shows on TV, with the warped characters and strange twisting plots, the "horror" elements were genuinely horrific. The Butcher portrayed in the show b...Read Full Post »

Well I lost my blog post I was in the process of writing. Fuck it. I'll do it another time. It was my top 5 favorite slasher/serial killer movies. And why MANIAC wasn't one of them. Anyway--
Word of warning to bloggers here: there apparently isn't an auto-save function if you're blogging right into this white box, so be careful. My 1.5 hours of work gone in an instant.
And to all who read this blog (do we have a real audience yet?)-- if you want to guest...Read Full Post »

For as long as I can remember I have had a deep and resonating fear of dying. I always just assumed the rest of mankind shared this feeling. There are people who have through various means convinced themselves of an afterlife, of heaven and hell, and the like. And these ideas massage away their fear of dying, which really is a fear of loss of consciousness forever. But, when an immediate and convincing threat arises that could end their lives-- eg., a mugger with a gun pointed at your head, a...Read Full Post »
