The Thanksgiving holiday delayed me in doing a website update until now. But now, I’m getting back on track. Small details of cleaning up on the site – such as improving the look of the navigation bar buttons – have been tackled.
I’ve added reviews of music recordings. Since my interests and tastes are very eclectic, they are going to be rather wide ranging. Indeed, the first reviews up are of a set of Beethoven’s symphonies and of Rod Stewart’s latest release.
I joined the ComicSpace site. The site, which launched the first week of December has become an attractive networking site for the comic book field. As that site progresses, I may get into reviewing individual issues of comic books I’m reading (harking back to my “glory days” as a DC letter column letter-hack).
I recently attended a screening of The Nativity Story, as an InterMission event. As a storyteller, particularly as a screenwriter, I have to admit that it is not the most exciting or moving version of the Christmas story. Although the music score is lovely, I found it a bit overdone, especially near the end where it became “exposition by music”. Instead of having the actors convey the power of the moment, we got Christmas card poses and swelling music. It frustrated me as a storyteller. Still … it is a beautifully shot Christmas pagent.
In the near future, I’m hoping to add PDF files of my two comic stories for the Shooting Star Anthologies, “Tsalosha” and “Zeus’ Box of Deceit”.
