The Have Done List: November

Played Apocalypse World

Read Two Bear Mambo (Joe Lansdale), The Race (Richard North Patterson), Tomoe Gozen and The Golden Naginate (Jessica Amanda Salmonsen), The Four Hour Work Week (Timothy Ferris), a bunch of Elric stories and most of Billy's new book.

digitised my CD collection

made a tough decision about my writing future


watched Jennifer's Body (it's suprisingly good)

brainstormed a national advertising campaign

help create answers for a Parliamentary Question

watched as the end of that chain of answers led to the resignation of 'my' Minister

handed in a film funding proposal for 2011

went to Apollo 13: Mission Control, where I was interviewed by Walter Cronkite and seized control of Mission Control (best interactive theatre experience ever)

Busy month, November! I've read some Elric... but how were the others?

Hope you weren't too attached to 'your' minister...

I liked Jennifer's Body, too. Terrible from a horror-movie perspective, but a really rather sparkling entry into the Heather-style teenaged girls are hellacious bitches genre.

Karen, I'm finding the Elric short stories, especially in Stealer of Souls/Weird of the White Wolf and Stormbringer to be great fun, much more enjoyable than the novels. I'd definitely recommend 'The Dreaming city' and 'The Stealer of Souls'.

Katie, you are so right about Jennifer's Body. Really, it won me over when Adam Brody gives his heart-felt speech about how hard it is for boys in cute indies bands to make it to the big time. I can totally see this movie getting remade in about 13 years, probably to better effect. However: directed by Karen Kusama? I totally have a crush on her, both as a director (Girlfight, Aeon Flux) and as a person (she's choice).
