Go ask Alice...
Well, it looks like we've got our first electric gig opening for a band at the end of April. Some friend of Fernando's who is in the other band. Very exciting. Working on some new songs, which is really enjoyable.
Cold here. Damp and cold. Coldest winter i've ever seen here. I am outlining a new novel. I think this is the one i want to write next. It's science fiction, i guess. More so than anything i've ever written.
The Three Settings:
Spanish Inquisition, Rotterdam in WWII, and a futurist world called Chimerica Very exciting to be back in the planning stages again. I love writing. It was lovely not to write for 4 months. But i was writing for two and a half years before that. Guess i'm just used to it. I need to do it. Weird. Like drumming. Hobbies are critical i should think. Hobbits too. I love those hairy little bastards.
Tired. I go sleeping.
Color me relieved. There is no need to fear death, even the most horrifying kind of murder. Because the afterlife is exactly like the album cover for a 1970s progressive-rock band. -Kyle Smith, New York Post, in his review of The Lovely Bones.
It was a visually stunning, and disturbing movie. Stanley Tucci was spellbinding as a weird old serial killer. Terrifying. But it was a bit hokey and disconnected at times. A lot reviews said the book just did it better, which was certainly the case in The Time Traveler's Wife. That movie just sucked.
Got lots of computer stuff done. Boo yeah! Done and i went for lunch. The starter was gambas. The main dish was cordero lechal (milk lamb) which is a baby lamb, like veal, and you get the leg. Stupendous!
Alice: But I don't want to go among mad people.
The Cat: Oh, you can't help that. We're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad.
