Even a man who is pure at heart...

Ok, Wolf Man update. Now I've heard that Benicio del Toro is going to play the lead and Anthony Hopkins will play his father. Sounds to me like this could be pretty good. Also, it sounds like they'll try to stay faithful to the original, which bodes very well for the project. I'm willing to cut the movie some slack since, let's face it, I'm GOING to see it sooner or later.

More often than not, I'm fully prepared to like a movie going into it. Why get all skeptical and complain and then go see it so you can complain about specific scenes? It's entertainment, so let yourself be entertained. Even crappy movies are fun on some level. That said, if they don't have that awesome, silver-tipped cane in the remake, I'll send some scathing emails!! Just kidding.

Or am I?? (DUN-Dun-duhhhhhh)

This is what happens without editors

I'm Marcus Pelegrimas, author of the SKINNERS series. Here you'll find various ramblings about movies, video games, TV, and...oh yeah...those books I write. If there's anything you'd like to discuss, just let me know. I try to update whenever the mood strikes me, so feel free to leave comments. There may be some occasional foul language, but anyone who's too easily offended probably doesn't read my stuff anyway.

Free Stuff

Here's how it goes. As usual, I've got my truckload of promo covers from EOS Books. I'll be going to some conventions, so I hope to see you there and I'll gladly sign your books. If you can't make it to a con, just email me your name, address and any inscription so I can send you a signed cover.

BONUS ---> If you would be so kind as to write up a review for any or all Skinners books and publish it on a site like, Barnes & Noble, Borders, or any other major review site, I can send you something extra. I made up some bookmarks (which I'll sign) and I've even put together some Shimmy's VIP passes (which I'll also sign). Can't guarantee the passes will get you into a real strip club, but I think they look pretty cool. Send me a link to your review along with your name, address and inscription, and I'll get these out to you as well.
