Because there’s a lot in the mix today.
First some interesting science fiction news.
Patrick Tatlopoulos, the director of the Underworld movies, will be directing a post-apocalyptic sci-fi environmental disaster movie called The Colony.
Leonard Nimoy has officially retired. His last role was a guest spot in the season finale of Fringe.
A sequel to Dreamwork's How to Train Your Dragon is in the works and will be out in 2013.
And at the moment, most reviews are recommending everyone skip Shrek 4. After Fallen’s take on the movie (she got to see a special advanced screening) I think I will follow that advice!
On to other things…
Pay it Forward
Pay it Forward was started by B. Miller Fiction who is hosting an awesome Pay it Forward contest on her blog right now.
Hart at Confessions of a Watery Tart decided to “Pay it Forward” to me – thanks, Hart!
I’m recommending you follow these three people:
Beth, a delightful lady with a wonderful assortment of blog posts and ideas - Beth: A Work in Progress
Karen, an author who throws out some great insights and inspirations - Coming Down the Mountain
Will, a father, musician, and a writer – and a great sense of humor - Fatherhood and Other Common Terrors
These are all really awesome people!
If I Were …
Tagged by Amity at Dreams are my Reality
If I were a month, I’d be December because Christmas and cold weather rock.
If I were a day, I’d be Saturday without a doubt.
If I were a time of the day, I’d be 5pm because it implies food and relaxing time.
If I were a season, I’d be fall.
If I were a planet, I’d be Mars because it’s mysterious. (Sure wouldn’t be Uranus!)
If I were a direction, I’d be lost. (Lost is a direction, isn’t it?)
If I were a drink, I’d be a hot chocolate because I’m always warm.
If I were a tree, I’d be an oak, because I’m stable.
If I were an animal, I’d be a tiger. (At least, that’s what my wife tells me.)
If I were a musical instrument, I’d be a guitar of course!
If I were a fruit, I’d be… okay, I wouldn’t be a fruit!
If I were a food, I’d be a pizza. Oh wait, that’s my favorite food…
If I were a celebrity, I’d be Ryan Reynolds! Okay, maybe not…
If I were a color, I’d be a dark blue.
If I were a book, I’d be… hey, what kind of questions are these? If I were a book, I’d probably be a doorstop somewhere!
If I were a song, I’d be Count of Tuscany by Dream Theater
If I were a movie, I’d be… damn, most likely one of those boring dramas.
If I were a flower, I’d be… A flower? Are you kidding me? Is crabgrass a flower?
If I were a facial expression, I’d be a smirk!
I’m passing this along to Spunk on a Stick, who is also having a really cool contest on her site.
