Is this from Saturday Night LIve? This just creeps me out!
Dunno where it is from just googled related topic images..
Thanks Blunt....I want more!
Thanks Nessy, you're very sweet. Life has been busy, but I have completed some obligations and ready to get a little personal time back. So maybe I can make a few more posts. I've been doing lot's of reading, but of the technical variety. I also was able to digest several audible books while commuting. I may try to update some of those books on the "What Are You Reading" postings. I even came across one book (audible) that was so... bad, I really believed I could write a better book; which is a big leap for someone with a technical background, unless your talking about writing an instruction manual.
I can't think of another sK which deals with sea monsters.
I've always liked "psychological thrillers", stories which focus on one character with peripheral characters rather distantly involved. The main character's reality comes into question: what of their experiences is really happening, what are they imagining? Or any kind of story which has a lot of psychological subject matter. My favorite kind of movies are such. And they're sometimes best when a twist ending is included. I know sK has already written lotsa psychological subject matter. The Dark Half and Secret Window, Secret Garden spring to mind.
About Dick Cheney, he could title it 'The Biggest Doofus that Ever Lived.' Or 'Destroyer of the Evidence We Needed to Put the Remaining Terrorists Behind Bars.'
When they tortured the prisoners in this case, every last one of the torturers knew beforehand that torturing people for information would disqualify the evidence to be entered in court.
And I hate every last one of them for doing it, because now the families of September 11 victims will never see any "true justice" in the case. Which matters to me because I'm a family member and have been following the trial. I mean PRE-trial proceedings. Thirteen damn years later and they're still in the PRE-trial - and Dick Cheney as little as 2 WEEKS ago saying we need to STILL be torturing them.
I hope he hangs in oblivion as target practice for the devil himself for making that stupid statement.
I voted for George Bush Junior. I think I can state my feelings about Cheney AND him.
Apart from the obvious #1 choice on my wishlist, I've wondered when SK would take a stab at a story about a bona fide medium.
What's the obvious #1 choice on your list?
A Talisman III.
It may have been in "Danse Macabre" perhaps? I own "Stephen King Goes to the Movies" as well, but I am not sure if that is the book he mentions this in.
Here is a cute one I found for you Evil Queen
Black and Tans. Not.
I think Gaga's looking at Blake........watch out Miranda!
A new collection of short stories every year!
That sounds like 'Mads Version' of Children of the Corn.
Kingricefan said "DO IT!"
So I did.
@peterstraubnyc Atrial flutter & pain severe enough to tweet about it?? Probably not the best time to lobby for a third Talisman. from TN

Okay, now give me all of your money. Because I said to!
In all fairness, the ways he expresses himself in writing terms are genuinely original and that is why we love him. He does tend to be influenced by particular ideas and concepts and transposing them to his Maine locality eg: DRACULA in a small town (SALEM'S LOT). Anyone who can use imaginative concepts and ideas around a feeling and a culture is worthy of being given room to move around creatively. If anything, the dialogue in the books is far wittier and superior than some of the things that come out of the films we see and it was this element of the books that got me hooked.
I think his short story of 1408 was an interesting one and his reasoning to do it as outlined in the introduction to STEPHEN KING GOES TO THE MOVIES is as valid a point as any writer can make about their work. The fact that he hasn't sat back, be it through his accident some time back to continue to create great work is admirable and respectable.
