the Joy and the Movement and the Dead

Due to my wife’s birthday today, my work sched was rearranged. I did no editing on Cities That Eat Islands. After taking her out for breakfast and to the mall and other refinements, I managed to finish the Miki files. All 11 novels are snazzy with nifty fonts and a design at the chapter head for those into that. Also the chapter breaks are more defined. I don’t think they will get more professional than this. All sales channels should be updated in a few days (kindle, nook, apple, kobo, etc,)

I plan to do the same for the older books but since you people only read my Miki books I’m not rushing. Definitely this year though. Sooner than later.

I’ll get back to editing tomorrow.

Bought my wife the blu Arrow edition of George Romero’s Season of the Witch aka Hungry Wives. This movie hasn’t been rereleased in maybe fifteen years or so and on DVD by Anchor Bay(?) Looks like it has a longer version of the film as well.

Also got her Insidious 4 which we saw in the theater.

She was excited to say the least.

Next up, the anniversary in less than two weeks.

Finished reading The Godfather today. Besides the poppiness of it and how ripe it was to be filmed, I noticed the structure and wondered if Quentin Tarantino was influenced a bit by the book. He has stated how his movies are literary and his structure certainly seems influenced by Puzo’s plot structure for this book.

Two striking deaths yesterday.

Glenn Branca: guitarist and composer dies at age 69

For lack of a better word, Branca was a genius and an inspiration. His contribution to punk, art, and life was immense. I have many of his movements performed by his guitar orchestras and his work with Theoretical Girls on my shelves.  His work has brought such joy and spiritual movement. He has also influence many of the greatest musicians of our time and will probably continue to do so.

Margot Kidder, star of Superman films, dies at 69

Of course every one knows her for being Lois Lane in the only Superman movie that matters. But for the freaks, she was that insane, drunken college girl with the best lines that you couldn’t help but feel a little sad for in Bob Clark’s Black Christmas and the other disturbed twin in DePalma’s Sisters. She had other memorable roles, but those two I hold close to my heart, that move me the most.
