It's a warm and sticky day. Currently, 77˚F and 83% humidity.

If you have an interest in obtaining from me a copy of the very, very fucking nifty "collector's edition" of A Menina Submersa, the Brazilian, Portuguese-language edition of The Drowning Girl, this is likely your only chance. Ever. I'm auctioning one copy.

Yesterday was spent at the Hay proofreading Houses Under the Sea: Mythos Tales. I made it through “Pickman’s Other Model (1929),” “The Thousand-and-Third Tale of Scheherazade,” and “The Bone’s Prayer.” Also, Sirena Digest #113 went out to subscribers yesterday.

I have a 25,000-word novella and a 125-page screenplay to write. Currently, these are priority #1.

Last night we saw the beautifully filmed and incredibly charming A Girl Walks Home Alone in the Dark (2014), directed by Ana Lily Amirpour. I never expected to see an Iranian vampire film that felt like a Mexican surrealist fairy tale. It goes on my list of favorite vampire films.

And now, we're gonna go see Teminator Genysis, which may well suck, but, then, I'm a sucker. We're talking Emilia Clarke as Sarah Connor. Fuck yeah.

Later Taters,
Aunt Beast

I can't wait to hear what you think of it. This is one I'm hoping to see on the big screen as well.

A Girl Walks Home Alone In the Dark
Yay! I'm so glad to hear you enjoyed it. The image of her ("The Girl") scooting around phantasmally on her skateboard in her long black cloak is endlessly cheering to me. She has earned a solid place in my personal demonological lore.

I also greatly enjoyed the soundtrack... Listening to it evokes all the beautiful imagery from the film. It is rather addictive.

I really wanted to see that last year, it really bugged me it wasn't playing anywhere. It's still on my list.

And now, we're gonna go see Teminator Genysis, which may well suck, but, then, I'm a sucker.

I feel pretty confident predicting you'll hate it but I'd be very happy to be wrong, no one deserves to go through what I went through watching it.

As it happens, I very much enjoyed the film. Even though I loathed the way it was filmed. I'll say more tomorrow.

Oh. Well, I envy you. It would've been nice to have enjoyed a new Terminator movie.

Hope the proofreading goes well. I have to say how much I enjoyed "Pickman's Other Model".
Looking forward to your thoughts on Terminator Genisys.

A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night was probably my favorite movie of 2014.
