  • And I thought James Patterson just wrote hundreds of books

    I recently caught James Patterson doing the talk show schtick and was intrigued by a project he mentioned to the interviewer.

  • Grammys weren't *gasp* all about the sales

    Interesting night in the awards show department. Top of the list is Robert Plant and Alison Krauss for their haunting performance on Raising Sand . I gotta say this is a great album that, while old world, is alive in a real way.

    When I was a young lad, way back in the 70's, we used to watch " The Creature from the Black Lagoon " in 3-D on Halloween. We would have to go get 3-D glasses from the store and prepare ourselves for the red/blue-glasses headache (Ahhhh promotional marketing.)
