I was very happy to see Guillermo will be producing another Spanish language thriller, JULIA’S EYES. He struck gold with THE ORPHANAGE, which was a wonderful and sad ghost story, so let’s hope that it happens again. Bringing ORPHANAGE star Belen Rueda back again is a great omen.
I’m excited that I will be picking up my brand spanking new laptop today. For a computer geek such as myself, this is a big event! I finally will be stepping away from my desktop and going fully mobile about the house! This should allow me to send the occassional tweet while I watch the kids. It has been really tough lately to find the time to even do that.
Some of you may be wondering what happened this weekend with the Wizard World Convention in Chicago. I was very excited to attend and meet up with some fellow DTF’ers and get to see Doug Jones and Luke Goss. Sadly, my cousin passed away last week unexpectedly and I had to cancel my trip to attend the funeral. So what was supposed to be a highlight of my year turned into a lowlight. My cousin was only 22 years old and died in his sleep. As I write this, we still don’t know why. Very, very sad – I was heart broken for his parents and sisters.
I think it part of the grieving process to meditate on death and what it means to die. I thought about it quite a bit this week. I recommend to readers here to revisit some of Guillermo’s thoughts on death – they are quite interesting.
