I meant to post before now.

Really I did.

But for my Literary Critique course, I had to read about 90 pages this weekend.

Pfeah. 90 pages. I can do that on my head.

Yeah, 90 pages of Marx and Freud and Nietzsche. Oh, and I had to read Othello for my Drama class for Monday.

I think my brain melted somewhere around 6:30 Sunday night.

But, I managed to recover, knock out the paper for my Tuesday class,survive the first two days of work this week and do "reasonably" well in class both Monday and Tuesday night. Luckily, I only have about 40 pages to read for next week's Critique class.

Plus, I'm 66% done with my column for the March issue of Penumbra, I've added another 1200 words to The Mountains of Night, a companion piece to The Demon's Head, and today, I added 2100 words to The Full Moon Affair, a short story I'm developing after listening to too many Sam Spade, Boston Blackie, Green Hornet and "A Man Named X" radio shows. If you're familiar with 50's radio, this should sound as if Howard Duff is reading the part of the lead character. If you're not familiar with the old radio shows . . . then I highly recommend that you spend a little time getting to know them. There's some really good stuff out there for the Theater of the Mind.

So, I feel good that I'm able to knock some writing out in and among the college stuff. Let's see how long I can keep it up.

And tomorrow night, it's time to meet with the accountant to do 2011's taxes. Oh, goody. </sarcasm>

I love old-time radio. Really need to add to my collection. Do you shop with Radio Spirits?

No, but it sounds like a place I should check out.

I picked up 15 CD's worth of radio shows at Dragon*Con several years ago. Along with the noir, I have a big chunk of the Abbott and Costello radio show, some Groucho Marx stuff, several radio dramas by the Mercury Theater group (to include the War of the Worlds) and some SF dramas.

The next things I want to see if I can find are the old Lone Ranger, Superman or Batman radio dramas.

Well, the visit to the accountant wasn't as painful as I was afraid it might be. It's never "fun" but there are good and bad versions of this visit. This year, it was a good one.
