Guess who’s back, back, back again . . .
I couldn’t resist. Bad news: some WiFi troubles left me Internet-less (which is both better and worse than you think it is). Good news: I was able to get work done on my novel Tears of Elmaya. Combine them and what you end up with is a two-week break from the Slog. Here I am now, refreshed and ready to continue our journey in pop culture and storytelling.
Upcoming writings include reviews of the new Netflix shows Bloodline and Daredevil and a review of the upcoming Game of Thrones Season 5 premiere, as well as a new, semi-regular column called the Hollywood Echo Chamber where we examine the largest – yet most insular – creative force on the planet. It’ll examine dueling movie battles like 2012’s “Snow White” films Mirror Mirror and Snow White & the Huntsman 2013’s dueling “Die Hard in a White House” films and Olymups Has Fallen and White House Down.

Thanks for being patient and, like Kendrick and Tyler the Creator, I will drop both my upcoming debut mixtape as a rapper, titled SPF as well as the long-delayed first epistory in my detective noir series Caged when you absolutely least expect it. And most likely when I least expect as well. Creativity runs in bursts, you know. So here . . . we . . . go.
