So I of course have been watching “Fear the Walking Dead“, which in addition to being generally good advice is also the spinoff of/prequel to “The Walking Dead“.
So as I’ve mentioned before, ever since, in his old age, Dennis the Vizsla took to noisily exhorting the humans to go to bed already in the evenings, we’ve been watching television with the subtitles on. In addition to helping with sometimes unclear dialog, subtitles can be humorous, grammatically horrifying, or subtly (or not-so-subtly) different … Continue reading Fear the Wonky Subtitles
So apparently the Walking Dead have constructed an amusement park in Avalon on Catalina Island — excuse me, “Catrina Island” — in an attempt to draw in more victims. You may want to visit Two Harbors instead. Here’s what Avalon looks like from a similar angle when it’s not being overrun by the living dead … Continue reading #FearTWD #BecauseTheyBuiltAn #AmusementPark On #CatalinaIsland

This week instead of Teaser Tuesday, I decided to reach into the big pile of ancient rejection letters and see what I would find.

I’ve been hoping to pull this rejection out for a while, as it’s one of my favorites, but I haven’t. So I took matters into my own hands and went looking for it:
The votes are in and the winner for the next scene of the month, by a landslide, is “Dragon Stones”. This is sort of a good thing for all you fans of “The Wolf” as it lets the anticipation drag out a little longer, given that “The Wolf” is less than half finished and would … Continue reading Scene of the Month: Dragon Stones
