Going to Bar Sinister tonight. Been several years since I last attended. I'm excited! :)

Brom Signing
angry

The book signing for Brom’s The Child Thief was wonderful. Instead of reading from the book he told us about some of his background and inspiration. I preferred that to a reading as I would rather get to know the author better. When he signed my book he told me my review was the very first one to reach him (I read the ARK way before it was published) and that he appreciated it. *smiles*

He was very sweet, down to earth and tall!


A brief glimpse of Wednesday

I found a clip from Star Trek on youtube this morning where I am visible to the far left of the screen. Not sure if this is the full screen version or not, I seem to remember seeing a bit more in the theater. But that could be due to me not thinking I was going to visible on screen at all that when I did see my big fuzzy head to the left I freaked out a bit. *laughs*



Can you spot the Wednesday?


The entire scene:

And all this from two 14 hour days of filming. We shot so much, perhaps more on the DVD? There is an awesome Fish like Jabba-esque creature whom I was one of his dancing girls. I hope they have that on the DVD, he looked awesome!

Putting Out Fire With Gasoline...

Saw Inglourious Basterds last night and loved it. Watching the audience squirm over the gory parts and unexpectedly hearing my favorite Bowie song* were the highlights of the evening. *Cat People (Putting Out Fire)

I'm posting the youtube video for the song, I don’t care to much for the montage:



I have the Cat People soundtrack on vinyl and it sounds better with the static of a record. :)


Side Note: I have some bizarre crush on Eli Roth/"The Bear Jew" in this. Odd.

“Simon Snootle and OTHER small stories”

I was just handed this darling book “Simon Snootle and OTHER small stories” by Lorin Morgan-Richards. I was struck by the whimsical illustrations, unique and often forlorn stories and the fact that he hand makes every one of these! (My favorite story was "The Callous Shrub".)

 


Available at Book Soup bookstore and direct through the author's website: www.lorinrichards.com

I think the picture of him making one is very cool. :)

I hope he does very well with them!

Werner Herzog

More Book Soup blathering:

We had Werner Herzog here this past Saturday and got on today's Publisher’s Weekly image of the day:



"German filmmaker and author of Conquest of the Useless (Ecco), Werner Herzog, stopped by Book Soup on August 1. The director (front row, in gray) is pictured here with the Book Soup staff (l. to r.): Hilary Parkin; Devin Tanchum; Charles Day; Tyson Cornell; Solaris Cornell; Scott Rothstein; Manny Chavarria; Brian Gottlieb; Donald Pangburn; Michael Barile; Kate Peck; and Julia Callahan."


I am not present, but look how cute that baby is! I dont even like babies but he has some strange cute power over me.

And also...Herzog is the awesome:

She's very awesome, a kindred spirit and easy to talk to for a shy one like myself.

Dienzo

I’ve recently had the honor of being painted by the extremely talented artist Dienzo :

 

 
"Wednesday"


"Ursula"

It is apart of an ongoing solo gallery show called “Vampyrically Speaking” at Hyena Gallery in Burbank, CA. (Which is an awesome gallery)

And I’m already sold! J http://www.hyaenagallery.com/dienzo.html

 

I am also pleased to say he mentioned me in this LA Weekly article:
http://blogs.laweekly.com/style_council/art/fiendishly-cute-how-myspace-go/ 
"I think MySpace has been a great source of reference and inspiration for me because there is such a diverse offering of people and the people that respond to my work. I've actually painted components, if not literally, the people that are my friends on MySpace. For example, there's a woman, she goes by Wednesday Mourning, who has a great goth sensibility..."
 

Squee!! :)
