The Little Man of Gold, Kat Richardson, and Commerce City
It's time for the Oscars! For best pic we have:
A Serious Man
The Blind Side
The Hurt Locker Up Up in the Air
While I thought the Avatar story had holes big enough for a starship, it was entertaining and
that's what movies are all about. The Hurt Locker is getting lots of good press but I'm sure the vote is going for the big blue people. My choice is Inglorious Basterds which I loved for its noir-ish elements and intriguing plot. Sadly though, not one zombie or vampire flick got nominated (But Avatar and District 9 do have aliens). At least I hope that Christoph Waltz gets the nod as Best Supporting Actor for his role as the self-effacing yet creepy Nazi Colonel Hans Landa.
Any faves for your Oscar picks?
A really cool thing about being a professional writer is that you get to meet so many great people. High on my list is that brainy and mysterious lady from Seattle, Kat Richardson. Here she is doing what she does best (besides scribbling awesome dark prose)...molesting lesser life forms like this cute little goat! I lifted the incriminating pics from Astres Live Journal. PETA will hear about this.
I also get asked about books I'm reading. Here's my current list for Mind Meld over at SF Signal.
This Tuesday I'll be at the Lakewood Library to talk to their Book Group about my first novel, The Nymphos of Rocky Flats. Drop by to say hello. I think there will be free cookies.
Colorado is a vacation playground. Denver, as the largest city in the state, gets a lot of press which unfortunately overlooks the local suburbs. One jewel among these treasures is that mecca of business and trade and the great American way of life, Commerce City. But don't take my word for it.
