MDP On MusicVids: “This is What it Feels Like” by Armin van Buuren feat.Trevor Guthrie

MDP On MusicVids: This is What it Feels Like by Armin van Buuren feat.Trevor Guthrie

I really like this song. A lot. It has that D.J. dance beat that characterises club music of the last five years; Swedish House Mafia, David Guetta, Afrojack, Calvin Harris, blah, blah... But I don't think I've been irritated by a video clip so much in a long while. Two men boysing ...

Because Rock of Ages

Because Rock of Ages

I just felt the need to revisit one of the best nights of my life: Rock of Ages on Broadway! So below here are videos of some of the best songs. Catherine Zeta-Jones rocks the twinset and pearls like no one else can. And soooooo many mullets. Russell Brand looks right at ...

MDP On TV: Longmire

MDP On TV: Longmire

Having recently feasted upon modern day cowboy series Justified (I'm up to season 4), I was interested to see whether Longmire could steal my affections. However, Walt Longmire is definitely not Ralen Givens. He's older, (occasionally) wiser, even more set in his ways, and twice as prickly. Walt is Ralen in ...

Review: Heaven is a Place on Earth by Graham Storrs

Review: Heaven is a Place on Earth by Graham Storrs

reviewed by Jamie Marriage What is reality when all people see is artificial? What is control when all people have is submission? What is truth when all people know is a lie? Graham Storrs doesn’t answer these questions, but he touches on them and attempts to reveal the morality of all-encompassing change. Heaven ...

MDP ON TV: The Bridge

MDP ON TV: The Bridge

First thing I have to say is, that The Bridge has the most exceptional theme song. Hollow Talk by The Choir of Young Believers is a moody, delicate, depressing song. Perfect for a series, which is all of the above. The Bridge snuck up on me. I had it in the ...

MDP ON TV: Being Human

MDP ON TV: Being Human

The UK series premiered in 2009 and I heard a lot about it back then. As often happens with me, I watched a half an episode on TV and got distracted and never got back to it. Then I bought series one, but that languished on my shelves for a ...

MDP On MusicVids: Dark Horse by Katy Perry ft. Juicy J.

Though I'm not strictly a Katy Perry fan, it's hard not to admire how hard she works and what a marketing genius she is. I loved the ROAR video clip but this one is even better. With SUPER high production values, as you would expect, and colourful sets, Perry lets ...

I’ve recently taken part in Fablecroft’s series on Indie Press and you can find my thoughts here. Also upcoming is an article in Geek Speak about the Peacemaker Comic and my Bibliobuffet In Conversation with Gillian Polack and Justina Robson. Will post those links soon.

Tara Sharp 3 is surging along on a tide of Tara-like investigations and nonsense. Always such fun to be in her head. I’ll be taking her with me to SheKilda and hope I can step out of Tara-land at the convention and be me!

Brigitte has done some character sketches for the new characters in issue 2  of Peacemaker and will be starting on the sequencing soon. YAY!

Angel Arias is in stores in about ten days and Yunyu’s wonderful new song Bluebeard will be made available free for everyone to enjoy with the book. The song really fits the tempo of Angel Arias which is quite a fast-paced survival tale. There is also a pirate in the book which connects well with the title (even though my pirate is called Ruzalia).

There’ve been some wonderful reviews for Burn Bright over the last few months but this is definitely one of the best I’ve read. The reviewer really understood the themes of the book.

Lastly, I’m always happy to see people are still discovering Parrish Plessis and this review just popped up for Nylon Angel. “Guts and Personal Demons” is certainly an apt description of Parrish!

Glitter Rose has had some kind reviews; words that make an author’s tender heart expand and glow. Today there is one such review up at Bibliophile Stalker and recently over at Book Smugglers, Geek Speak and the Bayside Bulletin. However it was a casual line by Jeff Vandermeer that really touched me. In a Shelfari blog post he referred to the stories as ‘beautiful and delicate‘ and coming from him – a magnificent craftsmen – it was terribly gratifying and made me feel like the emotion I poured into those stories was worthwhile.

So that’s my writerly spillover for the day. I will add though, that because of my warm fuzzies,  there’ll be some Christmas giveaways during December of Glitter Rose, so watch both this website and the GR site.

Some upcomings for you to anticipate include an interview with the Cool Shite/Joffre Street Team, likewise for Team Apollo talking more about the new Apollo Awards, plus Super Creatives from Spike Spencer and Paul Jenkins and my girl, and brilliant comic artist, Nicola Scott. And you’ll all be thrilled to know that Anne Bishop will visit again in the future to talk about Ephemera and new worlds.
