Been a busy week! But a lot of fun as well.
The reports that “The Bones of the Earth” has errors in it is getting to me. I know it does but, damn it, I’m so tired of reading it, haha. I’ve read that book so many times in so many forms. However, I will read it once more to catch these obnoxious grammatical errors that people are mentioning. It’s weird, because someone won’t find any at all, while others will report a whole bunch at once. I hate knowing the book has them. For anyone who has one of the earlier editions of the paperback, contact me and I’ll send you some free short stories as compensation for the errors.
The Kindle owners are in a good spot, though, as I can just push out updates.
I continue to work daily on “Three Heretics.” I don’t have a set number of words I aim to write every week, but maybe I should, so that it’s finished sooner. I really do want to get it out there so that people can feel confident in the series, knowing that there is a continuation coming and that their questions will be answered in one way or another not.
“Easiest Job in the World” and “Black Occult Macabre Vol. 1 Issue 7” are currently being edited. I’ll let you all know when they’re done, and I’ll probably make them free as well when I’ve uploaded the new editions.
The screenplays … not sure what to do with them. They’re canon, and they’re important, but they’re screenplays. I may pull them from Amazon so that I can turn them into something else later on. Novellas or novels.
I have an unpublished short story entitled “Nights in White Satin.” It’s unpublished because it contains quite a big spoiler for “Three Heretics.” The goal was to put it in the anthology; however, I submitted it to a friend’s publication way back when, so if it ends up in there, you’ll get an early look at it. It’s a zombie story, but if you’ve read “Bones,” then you know it won’t be your typical zombie story.
What the hell did I even watch this week?
The Green Inferno: Eli Roth’s kinda newest movie. It’s been delayed for a while now. I’m not one that buys into hype, and he’d hyped this movie up a whole lot, but even so, I was disappointed. Moments of it are decent. But aside from the first kill, it is far too tame for something that wants to be considered alongside Cannibal Holocaust. The acting is lame (whatever, it’s horror), the camera they used looks like shit (low budget film, fine, but low budget digital? blah), and the weird humor sprinkled throughout really messed things up. If you’re going to use humor, then it needs to be more consistent. The good? I really liked the idea of it, I liked the digs at twitter and SJW’s. The tribe was really neat to see, as well.
Cannibal Holocaust: My brother and I came home to watch this after Green Inferno. This is the Duke of New York A #1 of cannibal movies. Oddly enough, it’s actually a really good movie. Usually, these kinds of things are, you know, oh cool it’s gory or shocking, but there’s no substance. Here, there’s substance, and its filmed really well. Badass soundtrack, too. Real animals are killed in this movie, however, which was totally unnecessarily and something reportedly forced upon the director by the producers at the time.
You know a horror movie has done it’s job when a judge orders the director to have the actors come to court to prove they weren’t actually killed on screen.
Eaten Alive: Seeing a theme? We watched this and the previous two all in one night. An early Tobe Hooper film regarding a wacked-out in and the alligator that lives beside it. Really weird movie with awesome lighting. Very slow, kinda dream-like. Trashy, too. The blu-ray is pretty impressive from Arrow.
Prisoners: Amazing movie. Snubbed so fucking hard at the Oscars. Easily one of my favorites.
Videodrome: Best Cronenberg movie? Maybe. Probably. The origin of my obsession with flesh and body horror? Definitely.
Metal Gear Solid V: I know, I know. I’m slow, what can I say.
Bloodborne: Perfecto, as it always is.
Soma: Very Bioshock-y. Really starting to get into it.
So, I kind of, like, oh my god, saw Ghost last week. Was fucking amazing. Here’s some pictures I stole from my friend’s facebook. Hail Satan!
Oh yeah, I do read, too.
So my loyal, loving fans (and when I say this, I’m basically talking about two people; don’t get the wrong impression that I’m that cool) have been recommending a book to me.

Nothing says “you’re comfortable with yourself” like a shitty picture not long after you’ve woken up. Can’t wait to read this bad boy.
Ah damn it. Sideways. Oh well. Adds to its charm.
Anyways, back to “Three Heretics”
