Happy Guy Fawkes/Bonfire Night. Today's a great day for reading a good book or watching a good film. :)

I am going to be quiet for the next few days; my parents are visiting us from Oklahoma, and we're running around the autumn-colored mountains engaging in all kinds of shenanigans, including driving the Blue Ridge Parkway and taking a Ghost Tour of Ashville. I will catch up with everyone as soon as possible.

In other news, I will be appearing at the Voices Film Series "Big Brother, Little Sister" events in Hickory, North Carolina on November 12 (Children of Men) and November 19 (1984) as a discussant after the films. Both events are free and open to the public.

"Big Brother, Little Sister"

Read additional information here.

I hope everyone has a wonderful rest of the week!

Remember, remember the fifth of November,
The gunpowder, treason and plot,
I see of no reason why gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot.

Excellent suggestion -- V For Vendetta is one of my favorite dark SF films. There's a lot to be learned from V, too!

As for the graphic novel version, it gave me insomnia. Yes, I do write horror . . .

Very true!

And the graphic novel version is amazing, isn't it? I can understand how it gave you insomnia!

I saw that they're showing V for Vendetta at a convo tonight, but I was too dumb to realize why...

I hope your parents have a wonderful visit!
Voices sounds like it's going to be great.
