fosteronfilm subjected me to the most atrocious made-for-TV movie yesterday, in his on-going effort to make his review site as comprehensive as possible. Urf. I've even wiped the memory of the title from my memory. It was something made in the '70s about a police case surrounding a series of mysterious murders that looked like a werewolf did them. It was bad. Really really bad. And I didn't even have alcohol to soften the pain of the badness.
Updated my Children's Markets Listing to include a couple "at a glance" tables with the just the basics: market name, audience age, word limits, pay, and couple other stats.
Received checks yesterday from Carnifex Press for "Caesar's Ghost" (published) and from Dark Cloud Press for "Sins of the Mother" (forthcoming). Woot!
New Words: 500
On the Red Riding Hood re-telling short story which, err, still doesn't have a proper title.

I offer the following for your bad movie edification.
Who Is Julia? (1986) (TV)
Two young womens lives are changed forever in one moment. A strikingly beautiful and wealthy woman is hit by a truck and is all smashed up and nearly killed. At nearly the same time, a very plain looking lower middle class woman simply faints and suffers brain death. The beautiful womans brain is fine, so, doctors merely transplant her brain into plain Jane. Problems ensue when plain Janes husband continues to believe she is still his wife. She has no memory of him, and goes to live with the beautiful womans husband. She doesn't mix well with her new socialite friends and family. Mirrors are emotional battlefields as well.
Yes, a brain transplant. In a Lifetime movie.

LOL. What'd ya do to husband-guy to deserve that?
Ugh. Anything on Lifetime is synonymous with crap in my book. And...I already had me a long rant about ALEXANDER. Then there's IN THE COMPANY OF MEN, REIGN OF FIRE, THE DAY AFTER TOMORROW, MAY...and many more that some studio owes me a chunk of life for.
Neato market listing!

#3 - anything with Adam Sandler. Especially that one where he peed everywhere. That was the only one of his I've seen right through, and I was in hospital half tranked at the time, which is my excuse.
#2 - anything with Rob schneider. I have never seen one of his movies right through. The short glimpses I've had at movie trailers or while channel surfing were bad enough.
#1 Jackass. Worst. Movie. Ever. Total waste of time, breath and celluloid. All copies of this tripe should be burned. The people who made it shot in the stomach with a smooth bore musket and dragged to the cellar to die. I was at a friend's place for a get together when I saw this, and I had to leave after 45 minutes - it was all I could take. I WANT THOSE 45 MINUTES OF MY LIFE BACK. It was a choice between this and Deuce Bigalow.
I think Deuce Bigalow might have been better.
