How Do You Like Me Now?

Well, what do you think? I changed my template to fit in a little better with the Man in Black theme. Plus I accidentally screwed up my template over the weekend, so I figured fudging around might fix it. Something in my Friday post messed up the template so I had to delete it, many apologies if you used that post to sing your children to sleep at night.

But the blog is officially fixed, and there are a few new developments. Today I have my first blog up at M.J. Rose's BUZZ, BALL & HYPE. This will be a weekly event, and I'm very flattered that M.J. asked me to take part. She's done an incredible job and her website is an invaluable tool for writers, readers and industry pros, so hopefully I can live up to the high bar she's set.

Killer Year is off and running, make sure to check in every day for a brand new blog from one of our members. Today Brett Battles has a post about making an impression, something the Class of 2007 will undoubtedly do. Read it, or incur the wrath of Eric Cartman.

On another note...does anyone out there really want to see "Little Man," you know that movie starring the Wayans brothers where one of their faces is CGI'ed onto a midget? This is what I refer to as a "trailer movie," where the premise is so simple (i.e. idiotic) that you can watch the trailer and essentially see the whole movie. If there are any funny parts, they're in the trailer. But the trailer is still pretty dumb (Guy gets hit with a frying pan! Ha! I've never seen that in a movie before!), and if it does well I fear for the future of humanity.

I like the Wayans brothers. No, really. But these "paste-eating third grader" concepts like "Little Man" and "White Chicks" are tough to watch. I still think Marlon could have been nominated for an Oscar for his role in "Requiem for a Dream," one of my favorite movies of all time. And between "In Living Color," "I'm Gonna Get You Sucka" and the "Scary Movie" series, you can't argue with the impact they've had on popular culture.

Now excuse me while I go watch the "Look Who's Talking" trilogy for the 1,328th time.

Sorry, about that previous. Something went haywire with my italic tags. Anyway, what I THOUGHT I'd said, sans italics, was . . .

I caught the trailer for Little Man when I went to see A Prairie Home Company last week, but until I read your post just now, I'd convinced myself it was part of some awful dream.

(P.S.: A Prairie Home Companion though? A+)

Oh dear. That Little Man concept gives me the creeps. Just when you thought we couldn't sink any lower...(shiver).

I like the new look!

I'm thinking about writing a novel called "Paste Man," where a guy eats paste and morphs into a giant bottles of Elmer's Glue. Now that's high concept!
