In between book signings, I spent the week with family. Despite my best intentions to get some serious writing done, I spent my time catching up on backlogged reading and surfing the Internet. So since I have nothing productive to blog about this week, I opted to point out some of the cool stuff I found on the 'Net.
The Escapist magazine on 16 February posted The Vampire Spectrum comparing the sexiest/non-sexiest/scariest/non-scariest vampires. Kudos for Vampirella and Kate Beckinsale for making the sexy/scary cut, but I'd hate to be Count Chocula.
There are four movies I'm really looking forward to seeing this year. Drive Angry premieres next week. Pure, mindless entertainment -- what more can you ask for from Nick Cage? Battle: Los Angeles looks like this years Independence Day. I'm also anxious about Cowboys and Aliens. I know the premise sounds like a SyFy movie, but how bad can it be if it has Harrison Ford in it? (Yes, I know. No need to remind me of Hanover Street.) Even though I'm not a fan of video-diary movies, I stumbled across this trailer for Apollo 18. This movie looks awesome -- unless, of course, all the best scenes are in the preview..
One thing I've had to give up this year because of lack of time is videogaming. After the initial DTs passed, I got used to not having a controller in my hand. But with the release this year of Dead Space and Dead Island, I have a feeling I'll be spending less time in from of the laptop and more in front of X-Box.
And finally, McFarlane Toys is developing a series of action figures based on AMC's The Walking Dead TV series. Check them out at Zombie Hoard.
Well, enough rambling. I have to get ready for today's book signing.
