(Recommended Reads) 'Uncle Bush's Live Funeral' by Scott Seeke


On the publicity tour for the 2010 film Get Low, the first question from the audience was always "What's the true story that inspired this film?" After more than a decade of research, Get Low writer Scott Seeke answers that question with Uncle Bush's Live Funeral. This book tells the incredible true story of Felix "Bush" Breazeale, a feared hermit who attracted ten thousand strangers to the funeral he held while still alive in 1938. Seeke had begun researching Get Low as an outsider, a New Yorker married into a skeptical East Tennessee family. By the time Get Low arrived in theaters ten years later, he had earned their trust. They opened doors that allowed him to finally learn why Bush had his funeral while he was still alive, and why so many people came. He found the moving story of a man trapped by his culture and past, desperate to rewrite his life's story before it was too late. Uncle Bush's Live Funeral shows that any outcast can find acceptance, and any label can be overcome, all masterfully told by Get Low writer Scott Seeke.


Woke up to a flat tire today and the spare tire of my gut was no help in the matter!

So I woke up this morning to a flat tire...


But I made it to work anyway...



But I need money to cover the expense so once again  I would like to ask you fine folks to pay me for doing what I do best...


No! That other thing I do best...


That's right- my writing and other creative endeavors. Please consider making a one time or recurring donation. Now more than ever your support really helps!

They're taking the franchise in a bold new direction!

From DREAD CENTRAL



Some more possible casting news has surfaced for Kong: Skull Island as Deadline is reporting that Legendary Pictures is in early talks with Samuel L. Jackson to bring his fire to the role that J.K. Simmons vacated. They have a small list of actors to play the one Michael Keaton exited due to scheduling, with John C. Reilly atop of it. The site goes on to report that Tom Wilkinson has also just been offered a lead role in the film. Jackson isn’t locked yet, but the actor has shown a liking for being part of blockbuster fare. If signed, the actors will join the previously announced Brie Larson, Corey Hawkins, and Tom Hiddleston...

(Recommended Reads) Arcane Solutions (Discord Jones Urban Fantasy Series Book 1) by Gayla Drummond



On New Year's Eve 2000, the stroke of midnight returned magic, both light and dark, to the world. Discordia Jones missed it. Struck down at that same instant like a cut-rate Cinderella/Sleeping Beauty mash up, she awakened three years later to a far stranger life, and saddled with psychic abilities. Working as a private investigator for Arcane Solutions only brings on more strangeness. At least there aren't talking mice...

(Recommended Reads) The Whirlwind in the Thorn Tree: Vol 1 & 2 Box Set (The Outlaw King)


From award-winning author S. A. Hunt comes a blockbuster fantasy tale inspired by such old-school fantasy classics as Stephen King's The Dark Tower, C. S. Lewis's Chronicles of Narnia, and Madeleine L'Engle's A Wrinkle in Time.


After coming home from a stint in Afghanistan, veteran Ross Brigham learns that his father has passed away. Dearly departed Dad was a famous fantasy novelist, and the 300 fans that show up for the funeral demand that Ross finish E. R. Brigham's long-running magnum opus.

Ross and two of the author's devotees investigate his untimely death and discover that he might have been murdered...and the time-bending gunslingers of Dad's steampunk novels might be real.

As they try to acclimate to the arid deserts of the author's fantasy world, the three damaged heroes become pawns in a war for humanity's survival. The Muses have grown tired of immortality and now incite atrocities on Earth, trying to lure down a leviathan from the stars.

Can Ross and his new friends stop the scheming satyrs before both worlds are eaten?

Hawkeye vs Green Arrow - do you agree with the outcome?

MANOS THE HANDS OF FATE's soundtrack is coming out. The Master approves.

From ARROW IN THE HEAD


I've got to hand it to fertilizer salesman Harold P. Warren. His craptastic 1966 horror film, MANOS: THE HANDS OF FATE has had a more lasting legacy than, say, the collected works of Charles Dickens. You'd be hard-pressed to find somebody still talking about Oliver Twist, but just this year we're getting a special edition Synapse Blu-Ray of MANOS and now Ship to Shore PhonoCo has announced their intention to immortalize the film's dizzily jazzy soundtrack on a vinyl release...
