Happy Halloween

And what better day to post that HELLSHOCK/BLACK MASS/THE DA VINCI CURSE is now renamed DEAD KNIGHT, with a slightly different trailer online, though fans of my writing can still see me get machine-gunned in the face.

And now a word from the Midwestern Anti-Defamation League: in last week's episode of STUDIO 60 ON THE SUNSET STRIP, we saw a character getting a visit from his parents, all the way from Columbus, Ohio. Although Columbus is a thriving metropolis with over a million residents, includes Big Ten Ohio State, and is the state capital, this character's parents are portrayed as squinty-eyed rubes--so much so that the dad still has a record player, and has apparently never heard of Abbot and Costello's legendary "Who's On First?" routine. I mean, seriously. Even funnier, the parents can't spend the night with the son in what is probably a pretty nice mansion, but have to "get on the road" back to Ohio after the show's conclusion at what is probably one in the morning. One is to presume that they are anticipating rolling into Columbus by five or six a.m., instead of five or six days later.

Ah, wilderness. Give me a holler at johnoakdalton@hotmail.com.
