With Hollywood unable to create anything but reboots, sequels, prequels, and crap, many are turning back to good ol’ TV. But some tune in to find their favorite show gone! What gives? You ask “Why in the frak did Hollywood cancel that show while all this dreck is still inducing people to go slack jaw in front of their telly’s for hours on end?
Well, I frequently ask that same question, only this time I’ve come up with ten really good shows TV said goodbye to too soon. Let’s take a look.
This coming weekend, the fourth installment of the I Zombie series goes live! That’s right, you can get your hands on the latest adventures of Bethany Nitshimi in a few short days. This particular release is of significance for a number of reasons. Shall we count the ways? Oh lets.
The world is losing its collective mind. Every day you see something worse and worse happening around us. Someone claiming to be an “adult” and a “parent” leaves a baby or animal locked in a car when the temperature is in the triple digits. Those claiming to have brains somewhere trapped inside their skulls are taking drugs that cause them to want to eat their fellow man (and not in the good way!) Politicians are lying, CEOs are making 600% more than what we are making, cats and dogs are STILL not living together (why did you TEASE us Bill Murray?)!
So with all of this going on around us, how do we deal with it? How in the name of Geddy Lee do shore up our sanity and continue on…
Fellow Hoosier and Awesomesaucer, Red Tash, is giving it away!
No, not that! Get your mind out of the gutter!
In an effort to help the remarkable citizens of Henryville, Indiana (after the tragic levelling by an F4 tornado on March 2, 2012), a portion of the sales from the Troll Or Derby paperback have been earmarked to benefit March 2 Recovery, the not-for-profit case-management charity on the ground actively stepping Hoosiers through the rebuilding process with FEMA and other organizations. Originally Red was going to cut off the fundraiser on 7/13, but since she only managed to raise $12 that way, she’s extending the fundraiser through 7/31, in hopes of raising a more respectable total.
And… there’s a giveaway! Can ya stand it? Yes, you can. So much so… anyone who emails Red at RedTashBooks at Gmail dot Com and asks for a Roller Deb badge will receive one in the mail.
Ladies and gentlechums, the getting of jack’d has been on one Hell of a serious ride lately. Continuing on with the trend, I have another major player in the game of awesome. This time around it’s Claudia Lefeve. A lover of skulls, pugs, and one of my favorite television shows. Are you ready for this? Let’s Get Jack’d!
I wanted to make the announcement here that I am no longer affiliated with the Indie Eclective group. The short stories that were published under their name will remain in the collections for which they belong and I will continue to publish short stories with other writers as well as on my own.
To the group themselves, I want humbly thank you for bringing me into your collection of talent. The friendships I made within that group were powerful and enlightening. I wish you the best and know that much talent and success will come from the newly formed Eclective Books.
The world of indie authors is an amazing place. We are all eccentric, exciting, and wonderful. Thank you again, for letting me be a part of something special.
Happy Friday the 13th ladies and gentlejunk! I hope you have some seriously horrific plans for the day! Today is one of those days where I feel like barfing up some strange and wondrous facts about meself. Yes, it’s a bit self serving, but hey — isn’t everything in this day and age a teeny bit self-serving? I kid! I kid the now — with love.
Anyway – let’s have some strange factoids about Jack. Straight from ze horses hoof ‘n mouth.
Most of what I speak of here is my writing (or things related to the genres I write about). But there are other facets to Jack that you might not know about… and one of those facets has some projects about to be tackled. I thought I’d share some of the “news” with the Jackverse toay!
Yeehaw! Let’s get this hayride up to one hundred miles an hour.
Lunatics and Gravelings, it’s time again for another edition of Get Jack’d. This time around I have a fellow purveyor of the macabre, C.W. LaSart – who is scratching at her coffin to hop out and chat. So, without further foreplay, let’s get down and evil.
Ah True Blood — that show that takes the smexy to eleven and the plot lines to the moon and back. It’s obsessive-level fans drool and bleed for each and every episode and it is undeniably one of the hottest shows on the ol’ tellebubbly. But what is my take on this season? We’re four episodes into the season now and things are on a tanning bed fire ride straight to Hell. Let me offer up my feelings on how True Blood, season five is shaping up.
Fear not, no spoilers are included.
I am a proud member of Pen of the Damned. This is a collection of writers of dark words and we share bits and pieces of our own personal dark fantastic with the world. Generally speaking I use this as a medium for my poetry — something I very much enjoy writing. I wanted to share with you, the members of the Jackverse, a taste of my most recent work.
