Is this a huge mistake? Will it ever work? Will anyone care? Anyone building an app for the first time is wondering these things. You’re not alone. “No one knows what they’re doing.

BATMAN ON FILM

In the summer of 1989, Tim Burton’s BATMAN redefined the summer blockbuster. Not only was Bat-Mania taking place on the silver screen, but it also changed soundtracks forever. BATMAN was Prince’s 11th studio album and featured some heavy sampling from Michael Keaton, Jack Nicholson and Kim Basinger throughout the album. What a wonderful piece of […]

Wildflowers of the West Village

Happy 9th Anniversary . . . March 22 on the calendar marks another year, nine (9!) years, of Wildflowers of the West Village. Happy Anniversary . . .

File 770

(1) DON’T BLAB. Mary Robinette Kowal dispenses some wisdom in “Debut Author Lessons: So you’ve been nominated for an award…” Over the years, I’ve learned a few things and so here’s the stuff that I’ve told new Nebula, Hugo, and Campbell finalists.

The Pursuit Diaries

Happy First Day of Spring!! I can’t believe it’s finally here! I don’t know about you, but I’m ready for warm, sunny weather and spring showers – and where’s the best place to enjoy Spring? Central Park! I normally go to NYC a couple times a year and it’s one of my favorite cities in […]

Phil Lindeman

I’m working on my elevator pitch. In one or two sentences, I’ve got to explain what a story is about, why you should care and — most importantly — why it’s worth turning into a major motion picture that’ll keep the royalties coming for decades.

She’s super bummed about it and so are we. Now the good news. Elvira Kurt has stepped in as headliner. Yes, you read that correctly; ELVIRA FREAKIN’ KURT! […]
