Live From Dragon*Con!

September 2, 2011

(mostly for J)

I had to wake up at 4am this morning!  Wish you were here!

 

In News That Is Way Cooler Than I’m Going To Make It Sound:

Got to registration and discovered that the Line Was Moving.

Like, I got my cardio in for the day and was slightly out-of-breath when I finally made it to the end of the labyrinth.

I tried to take a video of this, but Jason didn’t teach me how to switch from camera to video on my iPhone.  Or, to be more accurate, he didn’t teach me the way that I will remember.

As you can obviously tell, I have a few hours of employment-type-work to do before my first panel.  Instead, I’m posting this picture:

Adaptation

April 1, 2009

IFC has announced that they’re co-producing a theatrical-length adaptation of Anita Blake: Vampire hunter (in conjunction with Lionsgate).

I’ve read a limited amount of Laurel K. Hamilton–she’s not bad, although I always liked Merry Gentry better than Anita Blake (and, to be frank, some of the creepy sex stuff squicks me after a while, so I haven’t gotten very far into either universe)–but I was surprised to see this particular set of bedfellows. (sorry, I just couldn’t resist the pun)

LKH is an author who is famously truculent with fans. . . and, as we all know, so is her husband. I didn’t think that an author who is so unapproachable would be picked up for developement–nor did I realize that Anita Blake had become high-profile enough outside of the fan communities.

And it really never occured to me that IFC would be the one to develop the movie.

Interesting, non?
