Hi Guys!

Hi Everybody!

Tomorrow is the first signing for Hunter. I'm stoked!


I edited out what I posted previously because I got on my soapbox and was waving my fist and shouting. I got really po'd at some nasty people on a couple of loops I've been a member of. But the solution to that is to just leave those loops. No point in putting people who are kind enough to stop by the blog through that kind of ill tempered nonsense.

I know it takes all kinds to make a world. I know that there is cruelty. I'm not completely naive. I even write about it sometimes. There are some very very dark themes in some of my work. But I don't like it when people rub their nastiness in other folks faces. Gets my back right up it does. But here I go again, starting to climb the soap box steps. So, let's change the subject.

I found a great present for my son James last night -- on a CLEARANCE table. A DVD version of The January Man. Whoo hoo. Early Christmas gift. Which was good because we were both kinda down in the dumps. So we watched the movie (which is one of our favorites) and by the time it was time to go to bed we were both in a MUCH better mood. I'm still looking for a DVD of Flash Gordon (wah haa... savior of the universe). Haven't seen it yet, but I'm going to try e-bay. James actually found a site that had Flanders and Swan's "At the Drop of a Hat" on CD, but it doesn't look like we'll be able to pick that up for a bit. Still, soon as there's some spare cash lying around it's on the to buy list. Because, how can I pass up such all time classics as "Mud, Mud, Glorious Mud" (a/k/a "The Hippopotamus Song") and "The Reluctant Cannibal." Weird British humor at its best! I can always use good laughs. I swear, I'm even thinking of getting the DVD we describe in the vampire book -- Fawlty Towers. Laughter is the best medicine, and I really need to take my medicine.

Anyway, I'm thinking of setting up my OWN list for movie buffs with James writing reviews and special sections for classically bad movies that are wonderful because of it (Flash Gordon, Attack of the Killer Tomatoes, Galaxy Quest) and "Big Dumb Fun" movies (more explosions per buck). I need to finish thinking it out, but I may just go for it.

Real quick,
You can get a copy of that "Flash Gordon" from Go to then go to the search box in the uppper left corner, then click on the arrow and change it to DVD and then type in "Flash Gordon" and a bunch of DVDs come up (ne of which is the one you are looking for I think). If you buy it new or used through their sellers there, you'll see you can save a ton of money too (I love Also, if people are be ing rude on blogs, the heck with them, rude people make the whole blogging thing no fun. I know lots of people who have left sites they liked because people were rude to them, so I know what you mean. Have fun at the signing!
