Fairly productive today. We've also got Pete on the premises, and that dog and his lampshade are the saddest thing I've ever seen. Meanwhile, I'm thinking of going back over some of my old work, the really short pieces, and dusting them off again. I'm sure this will upset the three people in the world laboring under the delusion that I was a good poet, bless them, but the problem with most of my poetry is that I always try to cram a story in there between the lines, and it occurs to me now that I might just try expanding them into vignettes. My prose voice is probably one of my few real strengths, so it's worth a shot, I guess. It might be nice to try submitting to magazines again, I don't know. I'm thinking about posting a few of them here instead. So... we'll see.

Hm. So for today's flashback... let's go with that mini-entry about The Black Dahlia. Note: I only made up one thing in that entire paragraph, and that is "crushed by a falling anvil." Every single other thing actually happened in that movie.

Roger Ebert Regrets Reviewing Movie He Only Watched For 8 Minutes. Note the first: He said up front in his review that he'd only been able to stand eight minutes of it.

Speaking of 'Friday the 13th', Remember How Hilarious Part III Was? From I Watch Stuff: "While looking around at Friday the 13th stuff earlier, I ran across this: Friday the 13th Part III with dubbed-over laugh track from a Beverly Hills episode. It's sort of funny how the laughter immediately transforms the film into a run-of-the-mill sitcom, but the I think the bigger point to take away from this the flipside: that it turns out every bad sitcom has basically been Friday the 13th Part III without the murder."
