R.I.P. <3 - You've Been Replaced

Anyone who spends any time on Internet forums, social media, or just plain old texting knows <3 is the emoticon equivalent to a heart, to signify a love for something - such as: download (1) But today (for me at least) that meaning is defunct. Thanks to one of my favorite people on Twitter, Charlotte Moore. Contributor to Dragonwriter: A Tribute to Anne McCaffrey and Pern and Director of the Fantasy Literature track at Dragon*con in Atlanta, Ga., Charlotte is constantly whipping up internet gold 140 characters (or less) at a time. The below exchange is one such time.   In my excitement I followed up with (Yes, I am aware of the typo's, bite me) Shortly thereafter I saw this tweet: And all I could see was a book Queefing. So thank you Charlotte Moore, and Twitter, and @PimmsCupPimpCup (whom I don't know but was part of the exchange and therefore should share in the credit/blame) for forever changing the internet landscape for me. Oh and if you are interested, you can buy Dragonwriter on Amazon.

30 Years of Carrie – Discussing One Of The Longest Lasting Titles In Modern Horror

This week we talked about the movie 1976 Horror film Carrie (you can see the video of the discussion below). We took a look at the Spielberg/De Palma collaboration not only as a classic in the Horror genre but also as a snapshot of what was common/acceptable in movies almost 4 decades ago. But we also happened to draw this movie while the Carrie 2013 remake is out in theaters, so this really turned into a discussion of Carrie as a franchise. Below are some quick Highs and lows from the three films: carrie_1976_film_carrie_gets_angry
