Getting sicker - not good.

Still managed to do a quick edit on Too Late the Rain and send it off to another market. The one it was at is currently very unstable due to personal issues with the editor, so I sent it off a new one. Fingers crossed.

I also received the contract for The Blackness Within anthology from Apex. Unfortunately it won't be seeing publication until July 2010 so you've got plenty of time to save the penny's.

I watched "Terminator: Salvation" and "The Last House on the Left" - both average films. Terminator pretty much continues the franchise but it lacks the polish of earlier versions, which sounds strange to say about old films, but this one is definitely grittier and edgier. I'm also not a big fan of Christian Bale but the Aussie lad, Sam Worthington, easily steals the limelight. He was very good in it. The Last House was slow to get going and we questioned its ability to sit in the thriller genre until nearly halfway through. It then takes off and becomes a good ride but the end is ridiculous.

I've got Sweeney Todd lined up to watch next and I have the Dexter Omnibus to read, but sitting up and reading is difficult at the moment. Focusing is hard and my nose is running like a tap.

Time to return to the bed covers. I hope life is better where you are.



  1. I hope your bug clears up soon! In the meantime, might as well try to find some inspiration in all that mucus.

  2. I really hope you get better soon. I thought The Last House on the Left was rubbish but I loved Sweeney Todd so much I bought it on DVD.

  3. Hope you get to feeling better soon. You seem to be getting sick a lot lately.

    The last movie I watched was The Incredible Hulk with Edward Norton. It was decent. I might watch it again.

  4. I almost switched Sweeny Todd off after ten minutes, but by the end I was loving it.

  5. Thanks guys and girls.

    Nat - I'm only online now because I can't sleep, but I can't focus enough to think creatively.

    D - looking forward to Sweeney Todd. Have been for a while.

    Jamie - Haven't seen the latest Hulk. Waiting for it to make it to Fox.

    Anton - I'm hoping I haven't built my expectations up too far.

  6. I haven't seen Sweeney Todd but I keep hearing it's good.

    I hope you turn the corner and start getting better soon!

  7. Best wishes for your health...and keep catching up on the films.

  8. Geez, hopefully the bug doesn't stick around for too long!
