    Don't Fret

    Don't fret, I have not died yet. Sorry it's been a while, but life has intervened. Did my taxes this weekend, round one, and went temporarily into a mild comma. Easter also brought the death of the fourth inflatable mattress. I'm thinking that I should check the one in closet to see if it miraculously fixed itself over night. So I woke this morning, as I knew I would, on a nice hard concrete sort of floor with nary a 1/4 inch of carpet on top. Won't probably get out to get a new one until the weekend, so will construct a nest this evening from aluminum cans and cardboard. I hope everyone who chooses to celebrate that sort of thing had a nice Easter and for the rest a nice Sunday. Wrote most of Saturday having felt rather bad about not working on the comic-that-will-never-be and am now only 4 pages from the end of issue 2 which I'll shore up this week and start on 3. Afraid I must get back to the Monday "pull", so that is all for now.

    Have been watching and highly recommend:

    JOHN ADAMS - (love everything but the director. Too many unnecessary "Dutch Angles" and close-ups with the wrong lens.)

    LOST - (Do I really need to tell you?)

    DIRT - (Still not sure what it wants to be, but it's fun watching it try and find out.)

    SUPERNATURAL - (Has become my favorite "Lets kill some demons" show)

    TORCHWOOD - (Better than season one)

    JERICHO (which has been canceled again. second half of first season and the second season have been the most subversive television since I can remember. The first half of the first season however is only required due to plot points and character development but should otherwise be avoided.)

    Nothing Really

    I'm just sitting in the bar wondering why exactly I am. A bit of the mental funk at the moment. This too shall pass. Not makin as much headway as I should be on the second issue of the comic. That whole things sort of a limbo thing anyway since there is no real proof it'll get printed. It's more of a back-up marketing bit to try and sell the oncept for a show. Of course it all depends on contracts if the guy I'm doing it for is able to sell the show. Have to keep the comic seperate with regards to ownership or whoever picks up h show would have the comic rights as well. Either way I need to finish up the second issue this weekend. I'll feel OK if I at least have two of four done before I move back to working on my stuff. I'd tell you something interesting, but there currenty isn't anything.. You'll also need to forgive what will inevitably been more grammatical and spelling errors while I use this little keyboard. I can barely see to type and there's no spell check in the Sprint wireless e-mail app. Not for nothing, at least I got this far without the keyboard putting my ohone into a reboot loop. I think I'll quit while I'm ahead.
