 Song mood: The Globe by Big Audio Dynamite (BAD).


Miranda.  It was an interesting show.  Not what I was expecting.  The perfomance by the singers was great.  If they were going with animation, I wish they would have hired a team of artists.  I know animation is difficult and takes time.  But this looked like it was done in a computer simulation program.  If they hired twenty artists and did an animation that matched the cover posters for the program, it would have been way better.  But that is my opinion.


Three more episodes and I will be finished with the original Inspector Morse.  In the laters seasons, it’s a whose who of british movies.  Many Harry Potter actors.


Tonight Son of Dracula will be on Svengoolie.  @realsvengoolie has been more active on IG.  And that’s how I knew Son of Dracula was playing.  I miss watching horror show host movies.  The horror show hosts do some quirky comedy before and after commercials.  And play some really cool old horror movies.


I’m currently listening to The Dogs of Riga by Henning Mankell.  I haven’t decided on what I will listen next.  A few weeks from now The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue by VE Schwab will be out and I will listen to that.


I have a cast of characters for my mystery.  Next I will work on their motives and alibis.  At the moment I am doing the little things until I get the momentum for writing.  Once I have enough momentum, the project will get under way.

  So I made some changes in plan for my birthday.   I decided to get a room at Aksarben Suites.   I’ll spend the day in Aksarben and pretend that I traveled.   What I will have, I’ll decide tomorrow, although I suspect that it will be Pickleman’s pizza.   I’ll read and chill.   Maybe I’ll take a bus to the Dundee Dell.   So many things I can do.   For coffee, I’ll go to the Starbucks on 90 th and Pacific.   That one has the Verismo coffee machine makes an excellent cup of coffee.   I can even take an early walk at the lake as I make my way to Aksarben.

  Song mood: In Too Deep by Genesis. It’s been an Inspector Morse weekend.  I’m halfway through the original series.  I think I came upon an understanding.  If the show follows the book closely, it will say based on the book.  After the second season, the shows stopped following the books closely and then it says based off the characters.  Some of them say based off an idea by the author, which would indicate that the author collaborated with the producers for the screenplay. The other thing that I realized is that if they are going to follow the series, Chief Inspector Thursday won’t be in the new show for much longer.  Which this last season hinted at. I expect to work on my own mystery this week.  It happens in Sandy, England.  My Inspector Trevor is surnamed after the Irish author, William Trevor.   Trevor is one of the biggest names in literature.  Or he was when I attended college for Creative Writing.  I’ve read a few of his short stories.  I think I should listen to a fe

Trends on Horror

Here are some trends I picked up on recently. The big push for horror isn’t in October.  It’s June, July and August.  As someone who self publishes books, I’m not at all interested in what’s trending.  Mainly because I just need to write as many and publish as many books as possible.  Following trends gets thrown out the window when you want to publish four to six books a year. I already knew that books and dvds, perhaps most streaming get released on Tuesdays.  At one time I knew why. It was the whole business of everything getting shifted because of the pandemic that I realized that the push for horror was June through August.  Harrow the Ninth was supposed to be released in 25 June and now is 4 August.  The Night of the Mannequins by Stephen Graham Jones was supposed to be released on 14 July and is now 1 September.  That was supposed to be my Birthday book this year. What I found out about Stephen Graham Jones is that a novel of his should have already been released, but i
