Mario is totally rockin' now that THE NYMPHOS OF ROCKY FLATS has already gone into its second printing. I know why because I just finished reading the action-packed, funny story about Felix Gomez, vampire and detective. Felix has his regrets, but he's not a big ol' baby whiner like a lot of other vamps. And he's not afraid to kick butt.
It's vamps 24/7 with me, so I watched "Supernatural"
last night, and not just because the soundtrack and rides are way cool. The episode dealt with biker vamps who wore black leather, lived in a grimy barn, and swilled JD from the bottle. It was awright, dude, but a little pitchy. I'm thinking that if I had a couple of hundred years to live, I'd definitely be hanging out (upside-down) in swankier joints than a cow-pie-ridden barn. Maybe these vamps were just no good at financial planning.
It doesn't matter, because I like the show anyway. I'm a sucker for smart-aleck heroes battling away at creatures of the night. It's a great tradition from "Kolchak: The Night Stalker,"
to "The X-Files," to "Buffy, The Vampire Slayer," on. I'm talking the old, old "Kolchak," not the stake-me-before-I-die-of-boredom remake that appeared last year.
