1  Horror Drive-In / Drive In Theater By Night / Re: HBO's True Detective Season 2 has cast... on: September 25, 2014, 11:25:20 AM

Rachael McAdams has been cast in a lead role. This makes me happy. I've had a crush on her for years. http://www.comingsoon.net/news/movienews.php?id=123331


2  Horror Drive-In / Drive In Theater By Night / Laird Barron's The Imago Sequence ebook on sale for $1.99 on: September 25, 2014, 08:34:03 AM

Just a heads up for anyone wanting to give Laird Barron's short stories a try. The Imago Sequence is an interesting collection of weird fiction, and a great intro to Barron's work. http://www.amazon.com/Imago-Sequence-Laird-Barron-ebook/dp/B0070YQT4A/ref=tmm_kin_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&sr=8-1&qid=1411658733

Oh, God, I can't fucking stand either one of them. Maybe they'll win me over like McConaughy did...I couldn't stand him, either, before TRUE DETECTIVE.

Farrell won me over with In Bruges, and he did a great job in the movie Saving Mr. Banks. Even if the movie itself was just a whitewashing of Disney, instead of a closer to the truth bio-pic about the author of Mary Poppins.


4  Horror Drive-In / Drive In Theater By Night / HBO's True Detective Season 2 has cast... on: September 23, 2014, 11:49:46 AM

It looks like True Detective Season 2 has found two cast members. Colin Farrell, who's long been rumored is now officially cast. And Vince Vaughn has also been added to the cast. I'm not sure how I feel about the Vaughn casting yet, but I'm excited about Farrell. http://www.comingsoon.net/news/tvnews.php?id=123252

What do you all think?

Ah, you had me for a moment. I was like, "Oh shit, not more trouble for Mark!"  Ya Bastard.  Huh

That's awesome! Sounds like losing your other job was a blessing in disguise.  Grin

Bug Jack Barron. A 1969 novel that predicted the popularity of reality TV. It is outrageous, courageous, and boldly original. Ellison write an unproduced screenplay for it. Damn it.

I just bought the book version of Ellison's unproduced screenplay for Bug Jack Barron, titled NONE OF THE ABOVE. I picked it up on sale recently at HarlanEllisonBooks.com. It has an introduction by Leonard Maltin.  http://www.harlanellisonbooks.com/project/none-of-the-above/

Awesome news, Mark! Congrats! I'm sure you'll be able to adjust to the circumstances at the new job, but it sounds like it'll be a tough transition. Like you said, you're smart and you'll catch on. Best of luck my friend.

I got a nice haul at a library sale last weekend. The two Arkham house books were only $2.00 each! I showed up to the sale after it had been going on for a few hours, and no one had grabbed those two Arkhams. I just wonder if I missed out on some other AH editions by arriving so late. Oh well.

YES! Congrats, Mark! I'm so happy for you!

I like this quote from C.S. Lewis on rereading, and the fruits thereof.

ďThe re-reader is looking not for actual surprises (which can come only once) but for a certain surprisingness... It is the quality of unexpectedness, not the fact that delights us. It is even better the second time...in literature. we do not enjoy a story fully at the first reading. Not till the curiosity, the sheer narrative lust, has been given its sop and laid asleep, are we at leisure to savour the real beauties. Til then, it is like wasting great wine on a ravenous natural thirst which merely wants cold wetness. The children understand this well when they ask for the same story over and over again, and in the same words. They want to have again the "surprise" of discovering that what seemed Little-Red-Riding-Hood's grandmother is really the wolf. It is better when you know it is coming: free from the shock of actual surprise you can attend better to the intrinsic surprisingness of the peripeteia.Ē

~C.S. Lewis, Of Other Worlds: Essays and Stories, "On Stories" (1947)


11  Horror Drive-In / Drive In Theater By Night / Jaws has died. RIP Richard Kiel... on: September 11, 2014, 09:11:29 AM

JAWS, A.K.A. Richard Kiel, the iconic villain from the James Bond franchise, not Bruce, the animatronic shark, has died. Of course he also had a lot of guest spots in TV including shows like the WILD WILD WEST and the TWILIGHT ZONE. He had a bit of a comeback in the 1990ís playing Mr. Larson in the Adam Sandler movie, HAPPY GILMORE.

I was not the biggest fan of the Roger Moore era of Bond films, but Kiel was an entertaining bad guy. I was more of a fan of Sean Connery, and love what Daniel Craig has brought to the character. Though, itís the TV work of Kiel that I will most remember him for. Rest well, big guy. http://www.comingsoon.net/news/movienews.php?id=122824

Sounds promising. Here's hoping for good news to come soon!

I love to reread favorite books. Itís like visiting an old friend that you didnít realize you missed as much as you did, until you see them again. I think itís also a touchstone back to the place, time, and person you were the first time you read that book. Itís really one of the few true forms of time travel. I find it comforting and a sanity stabilizer to reread certain books every so often.

Two books that I reread fairly regularly are Stephen Kingís IT, and Tim Powersí LAST CALL ( a book which I think everyone who loves fantastic fiction should read). They both have that ethereal ability to take me out of the current time and place and transport me to a time filled with much nostalgia.

I also reread certain books in a series when I know a new book in that series will be coming out. For example, once a publication date is announced for George R. R. Martin's WINDS OF WINTER,  I will reread all the previous volumes in A SONG OF ICE AND FIRE series.

Good luck, Mark! Fingers crossed. I hope hell you are in at The American Theater seeing To Kill A Mockingbird tomorrow night.
