today is the 20th anniversary of the release of Pulp Fiction.
Do I love this film? The answer would be yes.
“I’ll just walk the earth. You know, walk the earth, meet people… get into adventures. Like Caine from Kung Fu.”
I just found out, thanks the the Mighty Internets, that I could get my hands on a most prized object: the Bad Mother Fucker wallet. Now that’s the way one celebrates an anniversary like this.
In other news…
Look at the amazing comic strip that my friend Pat McCuen, creator of The Devil & Mr. Gandhi, did for me (he put me in it!!):
And here I am with the two first fantastic issues, and Pat’s Sampler (filled with goodies):
And here’s a sample of the great stuff you’ll see in issue #2…
I love his work.
In other other news, all seems to indicate that there’s going to be another great Harry Potter convention in 2016! It’s called Leviosa, and it looks like it’s going to be stupendous. I do plan on going.
I’m still very much hoping to hold my own small gathering for introverts, Quietus, in 2016! Perhaps it’ll be in September or October of that year? It’ll probably be more like a meet-up than a straight out convention. We’ll see what happens…
In other other other news, I’ve begun a new writing project. It’s a non-fiction book entitled There’s a Hula Girl on my Dashboard: How I Left Faith Behind and Embraced Life.
I’m very excited about this book. It’s going to be about my personal journey away from organized religion and Christian dogma (sin, redemption, divine laws, all of that). It’s going to be about joy and freedom, about living in the moment, about living with mystery; about driving along the highway of life, enjoying sunsets and the wind upon one’s face, dealing with potholes and flat tires, and breathing in What Is. It’s going to be about the dignity of simply being human—nothing else required.
I want this book to be available around the holidays. I’m very confident that it will be.
And then, there’s NaNoWriMo just around the corner… I’ll be writing the first draft of my horror/supernatural thriller, Specimen.
Then, it’ll be the turn of Outlaw in the Outer Reaches—I’ll have sketches of the cover illustration for you soon.
So, plenty of good things ahead! I’ll be keeping you abreast of everything 🙂
