Sometimes a leaky memory is FUN

Hey, remember that movie Zombieland?? The one with Woody Harrelson and all those zombies? Of course you do, but I forgot about it. I wanted to see it before and didn't get around to it, so I was pumped for the DVD. Forgot about that too until I saw it on the shelves yesterday. It's like a brand new movie with no wait times! WEEEEE!!!

I've only recently read the Planet Hulk graphic novel and it's awesome! Remember hearing they were going to make that into a straight-to-DVD animated movie? Neither do I and I try to keep up on that stuff. So far I've been pleasantly surprised with the Marvel and DC animated offerings so seeing this one was very cool.

Remember Bioshock? YES! Only one of the best shooters in a long time. Of course there's a sequel, but I didn't realize it was set to release next week!! And I keep up on that stuff!! Obviously work's been crazy so my "keeping up on stuff" has fallen by the wayside. Then again, it makes for some giddy trips to Best Buy as I'm surprised by everything I probably had marked on a calendar somewhere.

Next step...forgetting what's in the blue plastic bag in my hands when I get back to the house from Best Buy. What's this? Awww, Santa! You're the BEST.

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.
