Last week I  fell woefully behind. I can attribute it to various things, such as my husband's birthday (and the birthday shopping beforehand), plus extra visits to the park to go running after two caloric birthday celebrations. But the truth is that I can't entirely understand where the time...

Photo: The Golden Gate Bridge, in an aerial view, from the bridge's Wikipedia page.  Click it; it's a great pic.   I've been trying to read books lately with a writer's eye, so that I could learn what makes successful (defined here as published; maybe also as respected and/or successful...

I attempt to take a one or two hour walk every day. Usually I am successful. On average I imagine I clock in half way between those two points. I am currently visiting a city where I spent over thirty years of my life. My walks are varied but old and familiar. This past weekend I was...

What a wonder is a writer who, after 400 years, is still plumbed to create an adaptation of his imagination and work. Great art is eternal. And I like the looks of the trailer, too. [DE]   * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * Watch Joss Whedon Adapt William Shakespeare By Jason Boog   The...

I'm so excited for the forthcoming Tina Fey/Paul Rudd movie, Admission, for an unexpected reason: my superheroine poster is in it! Yeah, I got an email from Zazzle last fall saying they wanted to use it in a movie. Cool, I thought; some indie flick. When I realized the movie stars the author of one...

Photo: Istanbul's Hagia Sophia, from the film, and from the film's Wikipedia page.   I'd wanted to see this film for a long time, since before it came out, and I'm glad I did.  I'm not a huge Ben Affleck fan; I've long considered him to be the more pale of the Affleck / Damon team....

I gotta say, this is one fascinating article about movie making. It is well worth a read from beginning to end. If you are floating a movie script or two over the seas of Never Neverland, here is an eye-opener. And this is a tale about the end result - with money and big name director and big name...

Photo: Movie poster from its Wikipedia page   Any Tarantino flick is worth seeing, and this one is no exception.  Though worth seeing, however, I can't say it was on par with his latest and greatest.  In fact, this one was the biggest disappointment for me since Jackie Brown....
