Argo Fuck Yourself
this piece about DW for the Irish Times recently. Nice. Also, got to see Dennis Lehane that week in St. Louis and he says Ben Affleck will be adapting Live By Night as his next film (the second Lehane adaptation for Affleck after Gone Baby Gone). Took in Affleck's latest, Argo this week and he continues to impress me as a film maker - nothing particularly new or gimmicky, just solid fast-ball down the middle film making that featured at least three fantastic sequences.
this call for submissions for issue #8. Ryan Sayles? Tom Pitts? Whoever over there is the one to see - N@B is sending Sonia L. Coney your way, I hopes ya pay attention.
Got Pulp? Brown is best known for his role as Dan Dority on Deadwood, but he's been in tonsashit, and apparently was a classmate of Scully herself, Gillian Anderson. Go the hell read it. I'd love to see McBride interview more folks, he got in there good.
I'm looking forward to seeing Matt and other N@B survivors like Frank Bill, David James Keaton and Les Edgerton in Corydon, Indiana next Saturday, November 3. Sounds like the Booked podcast crew will be hauling some folks down from Chicago (perhaps more N@B pals like Richard Thomas, Dan O'Shea and Kevin Lynn Helmick?) Anyhow, go the hell to Beef O'Brady's Saturday night - we'll put on a helluva show - promise. Have you seen the cover of Les's next book, The Rapist? Good gawd, that's striking. And Helmick's got a hot novella tearing ass down the lost highway in a matter of weeks, look for Driving Alone soon.
