Can't brain, I have the dumb.

I just finished my first script for Catch or Kill, and it feels good. I expected more fanfare, maybe a fatted calf or two, but you know? It's just good to know that I am as good as I had hoped.

One down, hundreds to go, eh?

Coincidentally, the four hours of writing leave me without words for the moment, so I am going to watch Spartacus: Gods of the Arena and eat something before I waste away.

What I should be doing is writing. What I am doing is reading.

I know, I know- it's fundamental, I'm the first to say it. The problem is that I am reading Walter Mosely's Futureland, re-reading Orson Scott Card's Ender's Game and Warren Ellis' Transmetropolitan , and like an idiot, I decided that today would be a good time to open Gibson's Neuromancer.

So, instead of giving you the super-delicious, oh-so juicy articles and comics that I have been promising, I'm thigh-deep in reading three of the best pieces of sci-fi... period. It could be worse. At least I'm not blowing you off for the demon seed of Stephanie Meyer's(lack of) imagination.

If I catch a lull, or finish early, I promise to spend all of my time giving you that thing you like so much.

And you know you do.

My problem with comic books, Part One.

Don't get me wrong. I love comics. I adore them. Have since I was old enough to read. Problem is, in many ways, the Action Magazine industry hasn't grown with me, and in many ways, I have been left wanting. Over the next few posts, I'll go over the myriad points of contention that stand between me and my first true love, four-color fantasy, and the wonders therein.

First, I'll open up discussion on costumes; what changed, what needs to, and what needs to go away. The next post will be about the Women in Refrigerators epidemic and why it has to stop. It will bring me nothing less than pure joy to wrap this tryst up in a neat little bow with a double-header of two tired tropes that I call 'Legacy' and Murder by Proxy'.

As usual, I encourage comments, expect to see the first post soon!

Mind the gap.

Bollywood Matrix- Endhiran.

You haven't seen this movie. You haven't heard of it, and no-one that you know is remotely aware of its existence, but it's your future new favorite movie.

I could tell you about the frequent, full-blown music videos, but I won't.

I could, instead, let you in on the INSANE fight scenes, but that, too would be a disservice to you.

Instead, I'm just going to leave this right here.

And you are so, so freaking welcome.
