Cha-cha-cha and Such

It was a first for me. I actually watched an episode of Dancing with the Stars. My wife’s mission to convert me into a girl is almost complete.

Actually, we watched because we both know one of the contestants. Take away the annoying judges, annoying hosts and annoying post-dance interviews and it wasn’t bad.

I’m reading The Myth Hunters by Christopher Golden. It’s a phenomenal book by an underrated author. How can a guy write a gazillion books and be underrated? I dunno. But Golden is consistently excellent, and it seems he flies below the radar of a lot of horror/dark fantasy fans. Do yourself a favor. Pick up this book. Or The Boys Are Back in Town or Wildwood Road or The Ferryman.

On the movie front, during my recent illness I managed to do nothing but collapse on the couch and watch TV. I caught Borat, Casino Royale, V for Vendetta and The Holiday. I enjoyed all of them on some level, but it may have been due to my fever.
