Happy Birthday to Me...and Eric Spudic!

OK, I turned 39 yesterday so I have one year left to plan my mid-life crisis!

Got a free ice cream sundae at lunch thanks to my boss, my wife made me a dinner of lasagna and chocolate cake, I rocked out to some KISS cds and my son and I watched a b-movie about giant ants!

Life could be worse.

I share my birthday with Captain Kangaroo, Tobey Maquire, Hellen Keller, H. Ross Perot and Eric Spudic (!

Saw NACHO LIBRE the other night with my son and we laughed and laughed and laughed.

Got some stamps, stamped the Dr. Squid mailers mailed 100 of them out on Wednesday. Hope it generates some funding for a deal I'm trying to make.

Going to send a new master of TAINTED BLOOD to the editor for the ALWAYS MIDNIGHT anthology. He said the timing is good as he's hoping to get it wrapped up by the end of the summer.


Got Brett Kelly's new address so I could send off the check for the Dr. Squid ad in his upcoming BONESETTER comic book.

Have all of the NEW NEIGHBOR footage imported into the iMac. Have started trimming down to good takes and have first two shots dropped in to the timeline. Baby steps...

Created a photo collage web graphic for John (Pipedreams Entertainment) Bowker last night. Waiting to hear if he likes it.

Been a bit of delay in getting the news graphics put over the Link Masters footage, but should be ready in a few weeks.

Have gotten myself involved with a zine cooperative thing called SPAZ. Have to get 4 pages together to contribute, then a central guy assembles everyone's contributions, prints it up as a magazine and sends it out to everyone. Kind of like an APA I guess, but I'm woefully unfamiliar with a lot of zine terminology and history - I just make make 'em. My buddies Mike Hegg and Robert Sumner are the men behind it so I had to take them up on their invitation. I see it as a way to ease into getting a full issue of Dr. Squid published by the end of the year.

More later...

Time Flies

Wow - it's been a couple of weeks since my last post.

Never did get back to the mummy outfit. Hope springs eternal - there's always this weekend!

Finally got that Dr. Squid mailer printed up, then folded. Distilled my mailing list down, printed labels and labelled the mailers. Now I need to get some stamps and get 'em off in the mail.

Got a back-up mater of TAINTED BLOOD made, trashed the files from my computer and just finished importing all of Ron Ford's footage for the "new neighbor" segment of TWISTED FATES. Going to get that cut, exported to master & back-up tapes, then move on to DEADLY PREMONITIONS.

Never managed to get going on the 14-day screenplay contest, however, I did talk to my wife about one sci-fi movie idea I'd had rolling around in my head for a while, but had trouble getting from the big plot twist to the ending I wanted. As usual, she made the perfect suggestion which then made the path to the ending logical and smooth and now I can't wait to start writing it!!

Ordered SASQUATCH HORROR COLLECTION the other day and told my wife that can be her birthday present to me. I'll post more about why I ordered it later...

Gotta run.
