Another List

I recently outed myself on the Books and Booze podcast, about being a lover of romantic comedies. When I was put on the spot, I could only think of a few I liked. I tried to look through my DVDs, but it wasn't easy. I keep them shoved in the back.

I do enjoy a good romantic comedy. I wouldn't consider any of them my favorite movies, but I still like to watch them. I've even made a list of the the ones I like best.

Here are just a few of my favorites:

Definitely, Maybe
Wristcutters: A Love Story
Love Actually
Sweet November
Benny and Joon
The Notebook
Nights in Rodanthe
P.S. I Love You
10  Things I hate About You
French Kiss
Say Anything...
High Fidelity
Grosse Point Blank
Sixteen Candles
Romancing The Stone
When Harry Met Sally
The Proposal
Groundhog Day
About A Boy
Eternal Sunshine Of A Spotless Mind
Easy A
Love And Other Drugs
Zack and Miri Make  A Porno
Knocked Up
Chasing Amy
Jersey Girl
The Holiday
Garden State
The Break Up
It's Complicated
Nick And Nora's Infinite Playlist
How To Lose Friends and Alienate People
It's Kind Of A Funny Story
Down With Love

I know I forgot some of my favorites, but you get the idea. I didn't include details about the movies, or trailers for anything. Look them up. See what sounds good, and give them a chance, if you haven't already.

Some people may be thinking that some of these are not romantic comedies. I agree. I still like them, and according to the lists I found and IMDB they are. That's good enough for me.

Making 2014 My Year

A lot of things have happened since my last post. This is just a quick update to highlight my trip to The River City Festival of Films. I've included some pictures. If each of these pictures are each worth a thousand words, it still doesn't do the event justice. It was a great show and meeting Peter Weller (Naked Lunch) was incredible. 

He was such a kind and interesting person.

It's safe to say that the entire event was a success. Everyone had a good time, money was raised for several charities, and I personally did well at this show. I sold a bunch of books and a couple copies of The Collective Vol. 6, featuring our short, Trepidation. 

Here's a little bit of what the show was like. 
Selling some books and DVDs

Meeting Peter Weller (Naked Lunch/ Robocop)

Artist Cory Brown find him on Twitter @corys_art

Make plans to be in Evansville April 4th & 5th! 
The Next show I'll be doing together is POP!CON in Evansville, Indiana.

I hope to have some more updates and announcements soon. I've been very busy working on some scripts, new stories, and a new novel. I like to stay busy.

This is going to be an exciting year!
