I love the holiday season. Usually it means extra time at home and hopefully extra time with my wife. This year here schedule is a little screwy but we get Xmas eve alone. Very cool.
We're planning on having some friends over which is always nice.

I used to hate the fall. Going back to school meant waking up early and haveing responsibilty. Study, pay attention, be on time.
As an adult I need to be on time, pay attention and other various
things that goig along with being a grown up. Howeve I now love the
fall. The weather is perfect, cool and hopefully rainy. Less kids
running around the streets because they are in school.
Fall also means gearing up for Bouchercon. While I will be sitting this

Don't get me wrong, I love the Miami Vice theme, the eighties had a
large effect on me for better or worse. However, the best all time
television theme song has to be
I love the drums, I love the horns. I love the shot zooming in a McGarret and then flipping 180 to show his face.
Great show great song.
The NCIS theme is pretty good too, as is the theme for Bones and Torchwood.

Publicity is a very funny thing. Publishing Crimespree gives me
exposure to a lot of people who want publicity, usually with out
advertising. I understand it, and I even try to help, but sometimes the
trhings we get are just kind of sily.
Strange occurance 1: I received a book to review that came with a press
kit in a nice folder. Part of the press kit was a list of questions I
could ask the author. Problem 1: When I interview someone I use mys… Continue

the whole thing. We've been getting some nice feedback about the
DVD reviews as well.
I am also doing a page per issue about comics. There are an awful lot
of authors who are now writing comics also. Pus some comics
writers are now writing novels. It's an… Continue

So I made a mistake that I make every so often, I read Dorthy L.
There were some posts about Casino Royale so I just had to check them out.
These people need drug testing, or maybe they need to do drugs, or
drink, they need to do the opposite of whatever it is they do.
