"I can say it, but you won't believe me."

Just some ramblesome meanderings before I email the next batch of notes to briansiano, as we are now editing the final cut of the full-length trailer for The Drowning Girl. And I need to send Steve Lieber a new line of dialogue tonight. And I have to begin work on Sirenia Digest #75 tomorrow, and I haven't a single idea for a vignette.


Saw Celine Danhier's Blank City (2010), a documentary of the no wave and transgressive film movements on late 1970s and early 1980s NYC. Also saw Kenneth Branagh's Thor (2011), which I was prepared to hate, but it was really quite good. Not Velveeta at all. Oh, and Joseph Kosinski's Tron: Legacy (2010), which I liked even more than Thor. Though both were shot in 3D, only occasionally did the gimmicky for-3D shot damage the overall design and cinematography.

I've been reading in spare moments, mostly from the Journal of Vertebrate Paleontology, and I finished Weishampel and Jianu's book on Transylvanian dinosaurs. But also some of the stories from Joshi's Black Wings. Let's see. A pretty good Michael Shea story. An utterly awful Nicholas Royale story. A wonderful story by Michael Cisco. A so-so story by Brian Stableford. A decent story by Dave Schow (though it needed to be longer).

It's still hard winter here in Providence (or so it seems to me), and I haven't seen the sea since late December. I feel worn very thin.

  • Two in a Row!

    And, just so you know, the last time I did two LJ entries on two consecutive days was October 18th and 19th. What happened? I went into COVID-19…

  • Start Again

    I did not actually consciously decide to put the journal on hiatus. It just happened. I could not image to continue recording that "Today I did nor…
