prom image doll 2Words can’t begin to describe the past 6 weeks.  Perhaps if time ever permits I will give it a try.  In the meantime, a quick update on all the Deviant News that’s fit for print (there’s actually quite a bit of it that just isn’t quite yet, alas.)

In less than 2 weeks trippin’ will open for DEATH IN CHARGE, for a change of pace, at the Traildance Film Festival.  DEATH is up for BEST SUSPENSE/HORROR and BEST PERFORMANCE (Congrats, Team and Marina!)   I am so disappointed not to make it out for that one not only because it sounds fabulous, but also as DOLORES D.P. John Klein has a feature screening there, too (which is also up for several awards, congrats, JK!)

There’s so much more to share – an embarrassingly long overdue Bram Stoker recap, an account of a mind-and-life-altering directing workshop,  trippin’s ever fascinating journey, news of a major grant on the horizon and the tale of a fabulous New Orleans insect dinner to name just a few.  We’ll be back soon… or eventually.  Happy 2011 – I hope everyone agrees – this  year so rocks!

*On a personal note – my apologies to anyone feeling slighted.  I’m about 3 months behind on personal e-mails at least and almost never venture onto FB.  I’d love to hear your news.   Direct e-mail or, better still,  in-person chats over coffee or something stronger are much preferred modes for catching up.  My Internet time is mostly  reserved for work-related tasks these days.  And porn, of course.
