Misc. Monday

Saturday was the Villisca investigation. Sunday was sleep. More on that later.

I've never watched much of The Apprentice, but have been getting into the new season of Celebrity Apprentice. Are they always 2 hours long?? It's not a bad show, but I start to lose interest when we're closing in on 45 minutes and I know I'm not even halfway through. Time for some MST3K on Netflix!

Red Steel 2 comes out this week for the Wii. Although the first Red Steel is known as one of the worst games ever, I wasn't so put off by it. Thought it was fun enough in a goofy way. This one looks pretty cool, though. From what I've seen, the motion tracking for the sword fights looks impressive. We'll see.

Got Ninja Assassin on DVD, but haven't watched it yet. FINALLY a higher-budget Ninja movie!! As long as there's plenty of sharp objects flying around and blood-curdling battle screams, I'll be happy.

My car is making a funny noise. I should probably take it into the shop before that noise becomes a funny rattle followed by a not-so-funny explosion. Isn't there a scientist working on that Portal technology?? Step it up, people!!!!

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.
