I’m noticing a pattern this year, and I’m not quite sure I’m completely happy with it.

  • For as much as I say I love the horror host . . . is it a genre? A movement? A . . . revolution? Whatever it is, I don’t watch all that many movies presented by horror hosts. (I don’t count the movies I introduce at the Joy Cinema.)
  • And, perhaps more embarrassingly, I only read two books last month? WHAT? A writer really should feed their brain with as much reading as possible to keep those writer neurons from getting lazy, and beyond that, I love to read. What was I thinking/doing last month?
