In Which Tempus Fugit

Yeah so it's been... (checks watch) ten months.

The website came and went, again. I'm looking at creating the whole thing blog style, maybe on wordpress. I just don't have enough going right now to justify the expense of a non free site and a domain name.

More after the holidays. See you in January.

In Which the Author Beeps Horn, Throws A Book At You, Drives Off

So, I'll update personal junk later, as there is stuff to report but I don't have it coherently formatted in blog form yet.

Instead, here's what I want to show you now: NEW translation of Le Brick (aka the original Les Misérables) coming out from Penguin Classics books! With a new cover. By awesome artist Jilian Tamaki.

Here's the link for the preorder, since you'll probably want one, as you can never have enough translations can you http://www.penguin.com/book/les-miserables-by-victor-hugo/9780143107569

What makes this so dang awesome as opposed to every other cover of every other translation? I mean you can't even see Javert anywhere on it (at least I can't) but...

Look at the spine.

LOOK AT IT.

Do you know what that is? Besides a barricade I mean.

It's hair. And teeth.

To quote from one of my favoritest adaptions of Les Mis ever, also known as The South Park Movie: "Holy shit, dude."

Okay, back to everything else. We'll talk later.

Happy New Year (which the author says in)

Hello 2015! Not a day too soon, believe me...

Not much to update currently. Real Life slowing down my efforts to work on website but I'll keep plugging away at it. One of the biggest problems is finding the images that didn't convert over for some reason. I have so many disks with bits of website archived on it that it's kind of ridiculous, but I keep looking. Also I have a few reviews I'll be doing, I'm just not sure which one I want to do first because reasons. Too long, too boring, don't want to watch it again. Those are three different versions, btw, not all the same one (you know of which movie I speak :-D )

Still working on Inferno; writing some sections out of order to save the heavy research ones for later; normally I'd get the heavy ones out of the way first but I just don't have all the materials and frankly the stamina to do it right now. But it is getting worked on.

Finally, just want to thank the nice people who sent me Christmas cards, and the guy who donated money to the Bishop's fund, and the ones that tweet me goofy stuff. You people are awesome. Every little bit makes it worth while seeing this thing through to the end.

I'm not sure how often I'll update this blog this year; I'll try and keep a twice a month minimum schedule, and of course when things go up on the website I'll be sure to post it here.

And now here's something I hope you'll really like! /bullwinkle
