Hey, so I'm going to be participating in DL Hammons' WRiTE CLUB. DL's one of those inspirational bloggers who's also one of those aspirational writers, and he's been doing this WRiTE CLUB for two years now. I figured I was already doing Martin T. Ingham's Shootout and had just released Monorama and have no idea how to promote myself, so I'll just get myself out there with stuff like this and see how it goes.
I've also launched a new blog, and it's called Tony Laplume and yes, it will be totally about me as a writer and I hope that will help solve some of the problems I've been thinking about recently. Maybe yes maybe no but Blogger doesn't charge for these things, so it can't possibly hurt.
It's also worth noting that Michael Abayomi is participating in his own writing challenge. Have a look at that.
Anyway, saw the movie Evolution last night, which was something I was interested in when it was originally released in 2001, but never got around to it. Yes, I sometimes support things I have not technically personally supported. It's directed by Ivan Reitman (and yes, was dismissed at the time as a poor effort to recapture his Ghostbusters mojo) and stars David Duchcovny, Julianne Moore, Orlando Jones, Seann William Scott (and actually features the onscreen origin of his bird imitation that amused me so much in The Rundown), and minor roles for Dan Ackroyd and Ethan Suplee (whom you might remember from My Name Is Earl). As I thought back then, I was amused by it. Evolution is no great contender for the greatest film ever, but it's worth a look, definitely. It's basically a spoof on the scientific community as well as the academic community (and yes, it was also dismissed at the time as Duchcovny's half-hearted attempt to cash in on his X-Files fame without actually doing X-Files) and could possibly today be mistaken for a spoof of Prometheus, some ten years early.
