On Monday I’ll post my review of Gender Outlaws: The Next Generation over on I Fry Mine in Butter. I’ll hold back for now on my opinions and reactions, save to say that this is not your mother’s transsexual.
The Good Wife starts its new season next week on CBS. I was enthralled with the series last year but annoyed by its cell phone cliffhanger. So I’m hoping we get past the wannabe love triangle and return to snappy courtroom drama. Besides, is anyone ever going to get picked over Chris Noth? Please.
I’m doing an experiment with Amazon’s direct digital publishing doohickey. Read: I’m releasing some flash fiction to see how the process works. Look for a link early in the week.
For some worthwhile reading of other good stuff, check out:
- A challenge to writers to dare read through some online slush piles. It may give folks a better understanding of why agents and editors gripe so much about having to contend with bad queries and synopses.
- Stephen Colbert’s in-persona testimony to Congress. Colbert spent a day taking up a farm worker’s union’s challenge to do migrant farm labor for a day. One of 16 people in the entire country who was there. This somehow made him an expert witness to testify. Maybe not expert, but certainly hilarious.
- The Fry Butter gang sat down to talk about the Grey’s Anatomy season premiere. We’ll be doing a roundtable discussion every week, over at Bitch Magazine’s blog. Bookmark it, if you haven’t already made their blog a favorite.
- Speaking of Chris Noth, he just told the UK’s Telegraph newspaper that the Sex and the City franchise is “dead.” I knew they shouldn’t have set the last film in the Middle East. That’s the ghost of Ed Said for you, people.
Now then, get reading and get a good weekend started!
