Experimental horror novella adaptation with gifs and magical ingredient #3 (for Zac)
p.s. Hey. Page loading time apologies. ** David Ehrenstein, Hi. That's very interesting about Bill and Roberts Blossom, and thank you for the 'Early Plastic' quotes. Sometimes I feel like Bill has known everybody. ** Tosh Berman, Hi, Tosh. I'm sure Mr. Wallis saw your thanks, and I thank you/him too. Oh, re: your FB thing yesterday, I think a strong case could also be made for the greatness of 'Bits and Pieces'. ** _Black_Acrylic, Hi, Ben. Ah, a brief 24 hour delay. May your fevered anticipation pay off big time. Yes, if I didn't already offer a prime spot to announce and celebrate Art101 here, let me do so now with bells on. Cool, excited to hear how the meeting went! ** Steevee, Hi. Then it turns into 'The Corrections'?! Wow, it's sounding less compelling by the moment. Me, a picky reader? Ha ha, probably. I'm just not much of a fan of magic realism, in fiction, in movies, etc. Don't know why. My imagination hits a wall in that case. I like Marquez more than I like Rushdie, but I gave up on the latter pretty quickly. ** Chilly Jay Chill, Hi, Jeff. Thursday or Friday should work, I think. Let's check in as those days approach to figure it out, There's a never ending batch of impending film stuff to do, but it should be just fine. Getting the Sleaford Mods album is on today's agenda. My music listening has been hampered of very late, and it's been mostly involved in finding some music we need for an upcoming scene which takes place at a somewhat apocalyptic electronic music gig. Oh, I o have an advance of the Sunn0)))/Scott Walker album, and it is quite fucking incredible. So, there's that. Interesting about the new Gibson. I must admit I haven't read the last number of his novels, but I adore his early books, so, despite its daunting length, I think I'll go page through it at Shakespeare & Co. and hopefully pick it up. He's great, and such a sweetheart of a guy. ** Misanthrope, Hi, G! Super glad to hear that your birthday was so much fun even without the originally hoped for context. Wedding cake are the magic words. I wonder if the French make or eat wedding cakes. I don't think I've seen a real, old fashioned wedding cake since I've been here. Yummy. I love mashed potatoes. I mean truly love. You can keep the seafood, of course. Yeah, I don't think you would make a very convincing sow. But I suppose that's for others to decide. Enjoy your first day of suddenly being one year older. There's something kind of magic about that first older day. You just have feel it or something, man. Or I don't know what I'm saying. ** Sypha, Hi. RS is such a funny press. Listing your book before signing the contract. It's kind of crazy, but I like it. Next few months? Like I said, they're funny and crazy. Crazy like a fox or whatever. Great news! ** End. I made another horror novella out of gifs for Zac today, and you're highly invited to see if you'll enjoy it too. So do that. I'm going to Euro Disneyland tomorrow, but I should be able to do the p.s. before I split, so see you then!
