Or is it?
I’m incredibly busy for someone who barely leaves the house. Still doing all my usual SEO work. I have about a dozen SEO clients right now. I also write an article or two a month for Kinkly. Those articles tend to go bonkers online. I guess people on the internet like sex. Who knew?
Still reviewing Dexter (meh, so far) and Under the Goddamn Goddamn Dome or whatever it’s called. I might as well make the title longer since they’ve got the nerve to give us a whole second season of that watered down claptrap. H hasn’t read the book and he still says it’s flat and absurd, and the dialog is clunky and most of the performances are stiff. Dean Norris is giving a stellar performance though. The totality of my snarky comments may be found at Geekbinge.
We’re doing some Breaking Bad stuff to celebrate the new season. I’m doing an In Memoriam article with snarky commentary on everyone who died, and a short piece on why Skyler is the worst wife in the history of anything. Well, it’s supposed to be a short piece. But she’s awful, so it might get long and a little ranty. I’m caught up with the first half of Season Five, and am pretty stoked that they brought in Justin Louis. I love him! I was sad when he turned into a zombie that time.
And of course…the mag is going on. My experiences with theme issues thusfar has led me to conclude that there will be no more theme issues. I’d like to leave each issue as a grab bag where you never know what you’ll get. We’ll feature things in a way that has universal appeal among horror fans. Undead September is happening, and we’ve got some cool vampire stuff in the mix for October. Remember, vampires are villains, not fuck buddies.
Horror is a vast landscape and I don’t want issues to be restricted to any one thing in particular. Submissions are slow at the moment. I’m hoping that once issues get out there and people see how badass the mag is, that will change. In the mean time, you might consider subscribing so as to get your hands on the horror. It’s a mere $1.99 a month or $19.99 for a whole year. I’m not even sure how you could resist. You can’t, can you? Besides, how will you review it if you haven’t read it?
And finally, IT’S SHARK WEEK!!!
Granted, I liked Shark Week better when it was about shark conservation and the importance of not hunting apex predators to extinction. Now it’s about how scary and bitey sharks are, and how high they can jump. I gotta confess, some of that leaping white shark photography is fucking awesome.
I mean, seriously.
