Okay, I feel like the work I did on the courtyard has been pretty darned successful — here’s the view from my office:
The Morning Glories have wound their way up through the little elm trees, which is why that tree to the right of the barn door has blue flowers in it. And yes, I realize I need to coil up the hose.
Made some good headway on part 8 of Pete, Drinker of Blood today. If all goes well, I’d say the final installment should be online within about a week. Later than I was hoping for (thanks to the nerd flu), but still ahead of my mid-month deadline. This one will feature a cover illustration by Rafael Navarro. Meanwhile, the fine folks at DangerousRomance.com posted a swell review of Pete parts 1-3, which you can check out right here.
Yesterday my samsquamtch-fighting Canadian brother Axel Howerton hipped me to Total Film’s list of the 50 Greatest Indie Horror Movies, where The Stink of Flesh, the little zombie movie I wrote and directed, placed at #35 (just behind James Gunn’s Slither, starring Nathan Fillion). Not bad for a flick that cost $3000, I guess. I’m proud to say that zombie on the cover there is Jeremy Owen, who you may have seen trying to sell a sword to Nick Frost in Paul, and lead actor Kurly Tlapoyawa is not only Luis Guzman’s stunt double in the new Arnold Schwarzenegger movie, he’s currently doing stunts on the new Denzel Washington movie.
The Stink of Flesh is out of print in the US, but you can still get the DVD cheap on Amazon — and if you’re so inclined, you can also purchase the original screenplay for your Kindle or Nook, and of course there’s Bob Vardeman’s novelization of the movie, as well.
Speaking of the samsquamtch, I think it’s time for some Trailer Park Boys.
