Okay, I know I really need to slow down on this Nicholas Cage video thing I got going here, and after today's post I promise to let things cool off for a little while before I get into my thoughts on Face/Off, but before all that, I gotta show you guys something: 

The trailer for 1989's Vampire's Kiss

I heard about this movie from YA writer Chris Rylander (he's got a book coming out in September called "The Fourth Stall" that looks really amazing/funny/neat.  There's gonna be more about this in the future, but why don't you give his blog a visit in the meantime?) and I just watched the trailer on youtube today. 

And this ranks right up there with "The Wicker Man" highlight reel. 


So, without further ado, Vampire's Kiss

I'm pretty sure tracking down a copy of this movie is going to take up most of my weekend.  Granted, I should probably spend this time working on the new book, but life is all about making priorities. 

More news: 

Saint Francis High School Career Day

Was awesome.  The kids were great.  I talked a lot.  I answered questions.  I ate some donuts and felt really bad about myself for doing that.  I signed some books.  All and all, it was a pretty good day. 

Quick side note:  I visited the Flintridge Bookstore in La Canada and Once Upon a Time Bookstore in Montrose to sign some books.  Both of these stores are really cool, so if you're in the area, I advise you drop in and take a look around. 

Question:  And should you buy a copy of Sophomore Undercover while you're there? 

Answer:  Yes.  You should totally do that.

wow, this made my day. when i saw the video, i screamed. which made everybody here at work uncomfortable.

i so hope you're able to track the movie down, it needs to be seen. i know it is available for instant viewing on your computer via netflix.

also, i really appreciate you mentioning my book on your blog. that's awesome of you. i thought i should mention, though, that i recently found out that my release date has been moved to summer 2010.

Failure by that committee would trigger automatic cuts in programs beloved by Democrats and Republicans, respectively, unless Congress later this year passed a Constitutional amendment requiring balanced budgets.
