So, um... hey guys. Nothing new on the Fifteen Minutes front at the moment, but I'd gotten a couple of questions about it, so I thought I'd answer those. Also, I do a lot of writing over at my personal journal (cleolinda
, obviously), so I wanted to update you on that. What will the next Movies in Fifteen Minutes be?
Well, my answer is always going to be "I don't know," because I find that saying I'll do something jinxes it. (Which is why I can't
take requests or suggestions.) But I swear, since Wanted
, the only two movies I've seen were The Dark Knight,
which I really didn't feel comfortable working with at the time, due to the Heath Ledger issue, and Hamlet 2
, which, being a comedy, isn't something I can do anyway. But a lot of people wanted to know if I'd do The Dark Knight,
and the answer is... not at the moment. Maybe I'll get the DVD and enough time will have passed that it'll be easier to handle; I do have some notes. But I don't know.
As for which movie I'm pretty sure will get done in some capacity... keep reading.Why don't you post more frequently?
Well, you know? I post every day on my personal journal. Usually movie news linkspam; a few personal anecdotes, some commentary or recaps, i.e., Stuff That Is Intended to Be Funny (Whether It Succeeds or Not). And quite honestly, three parodies in a calendar year is pretty good over here, compared to my average output. I think of m15m
as a special-occasion thing, so, you know... if you're wondering where I am, it's usually at cleolinda
. Will there be another book?
I'm to the point where I feel like Fifteen Minutes(es?) work better as things I post here occasionally, for fun, the way I started doing it and the way I went back to doing. I'm glad I had the opportunity to do the book, and I'm grateful to have had that introduction to the publishing industry, but I feel at this rate like there's no way to do another and keep the content timely. I tried writing a draft for movies of 2005 and... well, here we still are.
What I always thought I'd be doing was writing fiction, so I'm trying to finish a novel right now that I've been working on for a few years. Victorian vampire steampunk. There you go. It'll be fun.Will the book you did publish EVER COME OUT IN NORTH AMERICA, SERIOUSLY?
At this point, I'm not seeing any movement on that front. When I do, I'll let you know.
(ETA: Sorry--here's where you can get it for now.
If you see two different books, one called Cut!
--that's the paperback version. They're both the same book.)Okay, so what have you been posting?
Well, What I Did on My Summer Vacation was write about the Twilight series. A lot.
(Clarification: musings on Twilight, commentary on New Moon and Eclipse, full-on recapping for Breaking Dawn and Midnight Sun.) Right now, the movie publicity is in the home stretch so we're watching the TOUR OF TERROR
over at my journal. (Warning: If you love Twilight unironically and wholeheartedly... my coverage or commentary may not be to your taste.) After that, I started recapping True Blood
, and while I'm behind on those again, I tend to catch up all at once, so... that should be forthcoming. Oh, and if you've ever wondered what my voice sounds like, I guested on a couple of podcasts
a while back and posted two short story readings on Halloween.
And then there's also The Secret Life of Dolls
, which I post every now and then on a whim, but there's a number of them up now.
And yes, I decided the moment I saw the Twilight
trailer in May that I would do it for m15m
(or die trying). I don't know who I can con into taking me to see it, but if anything happens with that, "Twilight in Fifteen Minutes" should go up later this month.
Anything else? What's up with y'all?
