What are you reading?
Time

I first read this novel back in 2006/07. I remember finding it underwhelming, but couldn’t remember why. Having re-read almost half the book, it’s coming back to me. Little’s quite talented at infusing creepy/disturbing imagery in his descriptions, but these characters are weak and the strange happenings which I assume are meant to instill dread in the reader mostly come off as absurd and tedious. Consider this one weeded.

The Something Political Thread (Was: Random Political Thoughts)

I mentioned it earlier in this thread and I got to thinking about it, and I just simply do not get what the supposed problem is with cultural appropriation. I think our society needs to evolve past cultural identity and dividing people based on culture and what better way to do that than to adopt positive aspects of certain cultures while disregarding the rest of them?

Who are these fuckers making these complaints, anyway? Liberals & progressives? I thought liberals & progressives embraced multiculturalism. That’s exactly what “cultural appropriation” is.

Prom Night- One of the “classic” slasher movies that came out in the wake of Halloween. Carpenter was my film teacher’s favorite punching bag, and I confess that Halloween has never been a favorite of mine, but I appreciate it more the more knockoffs I watch. Prom Night is slow, boring, and even at 94 minutes, feels way too long. No interesting characters, no suspense, no style, flat direction, simply dreadful and dull.

Star Wars: A Lost Hope (The Final Episode in DuracellEnergizer's New PT Re-Write) *CANCELLED*
Time

I’ve decided to cut my losses and officially cancel development of this screenplay.

In my last post, I provided an outline of where I planned to take the story. I’ve since fleshed that outline out a bit, including details I deliberately omitted last time to preserve surprises. You can find it HERE.
