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 ...

The feeling of sending a novel off to your editor/publisher is quite euphoric. Having done that last Friday (Tara Sharp 3) I headed off to Supanova feeling light and deserving of a break.  In that frame of mind, how could I fail to have fun at my favourite event!

Many thanks to Ineke for making my stay on the Dymocks stall so pleasant and a big wave to my fellow authors – Ian Irvine, Cory Daniells, Kylie Chan, Tracey O’Hara and Keri Arthur (and Trent Jamieson, who was there on Saturday) for being such good company. It feels like home from home with my Supanova family; Missy, Fel, Q-dog, Bruce, Tiarne, Chris and Dion and Daniel and the Z family. One of the highlights of the weekend was having my photo taken with all of Damien’s Dr Who’s. I also caught up with a bunch of friends including Dinah Saur, Rupert, Allan, Maddy etc and finally got to meet Sean the Bookanaut.

While I was off cavorting, some things popped up on the net, including my interview with Holly Harper at Readings Books and Yunyu and my interview with The Spotlight Report, my favourite entertainment e-zine. I also blogged about Twelfth Planet’s Press’s World Fantasy Award win.

Ryssi made some neat Night Creatures badges for fans – so help yourself:

 

And I think that’s the current crop of news. I have Tom Taylor coming up in Super Creatives and (I hope) the director of the Gold Coast Film Festival. Stay tuned!
