here comes the holidays

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.

We did finally get the BIG ASS TV we have been planing for. A 48" LCD and it rocks. I plan to spend a lot of time in the next month in front of it staring till I go blind. I now plan to re watch a lot of things, Lord of the… Continue

end of summer

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

Tv Theme Songs

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

Hawaii Five-O

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.

Favorites anyone?

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

Old Television and comics

It's a strange thing that part of putting out

Crimespree now includes watching DVDs. We started reviewing DVDs a

little over a year ago, and Jeremy has done a great job coordinating

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…

What the fuck

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.

"The new bond is wimpy and effeminate, There's not enough action, I turned it off half way through..."

Wimpy??? Did they not see the ass kicking going on in the…
