Music to Murder By

Needed to note this.

Lately I've been in a cycle of music to write by.
The ones that keep coming up again and again that kick ass to write to:

Tool - Laterus
Zeppelin IV
2 live Crew - Nasty as they wanta be
Public Enemy - Takes a Nation of Millions
Massive Attack - Mezzanine
and the whole fucking Nine Inch Nails Library

Jerry Reed and Warm Gloves

I've got the mother of all rants coming up soon. It's been a long fucking year and I've got a lot to say about it.

But right now, I'm feeling a bit like Jerry Reed. I've got a long way to go, and a short time to get there.

I'm basking in the blue glow of my monitor, working on the last pages of the first draft of a new screenplay.

I haven't had time to cut the heating vents properly yet, and it's colder than a witch's tit down here. When I'm taking a break and just thinking, I put gloves on because my hands are freezing from a combination of lack of warm air current and typing as fast as I fucking can.

But oh... I've got a flame inside like you wouldn't believe.

Quick update

Of All Evil is up now at: for their Christmas issue.

My short Bluebottle Summer is posted at and has been getting a lot of attention lately. Since second week of October, 214 people have checked it out.

Lurking around some message boards and came across a contact for an agent... the Reader's Digest version of what happened is that she asked for some loglines/summaries of my script The Pink Room, and what else I was working on. She's been getting a lot of requests for horror scripts lately, and on average 5 - 10 leads from production companies a week (not just horror, but all genres) and after reading what I'm currently writing (script adaptation of Bluebottle Summer, and after that, a medical thriller called Lower Levels) she wants to be my agent. We'll see what develops here.

ffft ffft.
