New Book Release

I’ve been horribly neglectful of my blog. There’s a reason for that. Since I began my YouTube channel last summer, all of my energy not spent on life and writing (and trying to maintain a crappy herb garden) goes into making two to three BookTube/AuthorTube videos a week. I’m having tons of fun doing it,Continue reading “New Book Release”

Great Villains Part Three

Psycho Bitches – The Borderline The best depiction of a borderline personality disordered individual ever committed to screen is Glenn Close’s Alex in Fatal Attraction. This Cluster B disorder (of which women are most afflicted) is marked by poor boundaries, impulsivity, and a violent reaction to any real or perceived rejection. At first these seductiveContinue reading “Great Villains Part Three”

The Horror of Aging

I’ve Had Those Moments As a woman in my mid-fifties, I’ve experienced the horror expressed in this classic moment of cinematic grand dame guignol. I started a YouTube channel recently, and I admit to spending as much time on my make-up, hair, and flattering lighting as I do my “content.” Like many Virgos, I’m vain.Continue reading “The Horror of Aging”

Nocturnal Animals – Devastating Lessons in Life through Art

I watched Nocturnal Animals for the second time (thanks HBO) last night. And I’m sure I’ll watch it again. I know, I know—many critics wrote it off as style over substance, the fashion designer director has the visuals down but no depth of content. (spoilers abound). The film begins with an odd montage considering theContinue reading “Nocturnal Animals – Devastating Lessons in Life through Art”

A Taste of Evil is Delicious

Suuuuusan….. Summer reading (and viewing) demands a lapse of taste (let’s save the serious stuff for the first autumn chill), so I’ve been happily cooling off in a witch’s pond of pulp Gothic romances circa 1970. I adore them! A close aunt of mine, as eccentric as any dowager you’ll find on these faded pages,Continue reading “A Taste of Evil is Delicious”

Twin Peaks: the Return

Lynch is still cool. Lynch has always been cool. Like many an artsy college student in the early 1980’s, I first encountered David Lynch at the campus’ art house in the form of Eraserhead. Next, was The Elephant Man which I loved,  Dune I missed (till recently), but then Blue Velvet came and really knocked myContinue reading “Twin Peaks: the Return”

Indie Horror Review #5

Blue Meat Blues by Joshua McGrath In my quest for finding indie (self-published) horror novels to review, I consulted a list on Goodreads and deliberately chose the book with the least reviews and the weirdest cover–I’ve always had a soft spot for the underdog. I checked out the author’s profile page and see that hisContinue reading “Indie Horror Review #5”
