Geeking Out

OK, everyone is looking back at 2006, but I'm going to glimpse at one really cool thing coming up in 2007: THE RISE OF THE SILVER SURFER! Yes, the first Fantastic Four movie was just barely watchable, and I have no doubt that its sequel will find its way to mediocrity as well, but it will have the Silver Surfer on screen! Will they screw up the story? Most definitely, but it will have Norrin Radd riding that cosmic surfboard - that's all I'm going for and that's all I'm expecting. And lucky me, the movie's trailer is nothing but a race between Johnny Storm and the Surfer. Download it in HD and watch it over and over again, like I have. If I watch the trailer enough times, maybe I won't have to subject myself to two hours of sub-grade comic book movie.

What Did I Miss?

Wow, I've really been out of the loop. I haven't caught up with anyone, I haven't really been checking e-mail, and (worst of all) I haven't done too much writing. I've missed a few things, like the demise of Flashing In the Gutters - man, that was a shock. Others have been publishing their Gutters stories on their blogs, and I'll get around to doing that as well, but it really sucks that the site won't be around. Poor Tribe. I can understand his exhaustion with running Gutters and I really really appreciate his efforts. He should be proud of his achievement.

Anyway, I need to catch up with some people - I have a lot of e-mails to sift through. I think I even had a short story published in the past month.

I promise to update this more often and keep in touch with my net friends - it's actually one of my New Year resolutions. So, I'm off to catch up with websites and blogs.
