I really liked the first episode of 11.22.63

I finally watched the first episode of 11.22.63. This as you know is based off the Stephen King book about preventing JFK’s assassination. It is my favorite book from King. I had dreamed of it being a movie but I knew with so much detail it would best be served as a series. Now it’s here on Hulu and I love it.

Of course as I am watching this I have to judge this and compare it to the book. So far, all the important details remain the same. There are some name changes and time changes but that doesn’t affect the story at all. Instead we get a real riveting adaptation of the book in visual form. What I like most about it is that because I already know the story, I can anticipate what happens next and still get excited to see how it unfolds.

It sucks that I have to wait until next week to watch but it will be worth it. I hope people like it. The book is good and I hope the show does it justice.

11/22/63 is coming to TV and I am so excited

This is my favorite Stephen King book of all time. Plus since you know I am obsessed with JFK assassination theories, this is perfect.

I love the book so much I might need to read it again.

This trailer is really promising. I have time when this comes out. I will binge it all!

The pineapple cake preview

Remember when I said I had some story ideas? Well, I realized that I may never write these as a book, but a short story isn’t out of the question.

I decided to take one of the ideas and start to write it. I am not sure where it goes and how long it takes. I have never written anything of this magnitude before, especially as a fiction story.

But who knows? Maybe it will turn out OK. Here’s a sneak preview of what I have so far:

The story of how I got to meet Dr. J

What a great experience for me.

But at the end of the day...

Several weeks ago I found out too late about a Stevie Nicks signing at a Barnes & Noble in LA. That devastated me because I love Fleetwood Mac and she’s my favorite. However that day, I also found out that Julius Erving would be signing his new autobiography a couple weeks later. I knew for sure that I could not miss it.

For these kind of events, it’s actually free. Of course, you have to pay a price for waiting in line and buying the book to sign. But other than that, it’s a pretty great deal.

I woke up at 6AM this morning to make sure that I was in line when the store opened at 9AM to get a wristband that secured a signed copy of the book. 6AM is early but if you understand LA traffic, it was the right call. I actually got to the shopping…

Celebrating The Room, buying ‘The Disaster Artist’ book and meeting the cast for a huge laugh

I was rushing to get off work in hopes of making this event. Greg Sestero wrote a book about his experience in filming The Room. They were having a book launch in LA and he was going to be there along with the author. The event started at 7PM and I was able to get there at 8PM. Luckily, they started late which was OK by me.

I got there and just stood in the aisle for about 10 minutes as they played the documentary of the making of the movie. We learned a few things such as the breast cancer scene and how there was no conclusion to it, so it was just determined that it was a lie the whole time.

Following the documentary, Sestero and the author Tom Bissell took some Q&As from the audience. Shortly afterward, he invited the rest of the cast of the movie to join him onstage. Juliette Danielle (Lisa), Robyn Paris (Michelle), Kyle Vogt (Peter) and Carolyn Minnott (Claudette) joined Greg on stage to entertain questions. It was great, lots of laughs.

Getting ‘Holy Toledo’ weeks after its release even though I helped Kickstart it

Months ago I invested money into the new “Holy Toledo” book by Ken Korach. It was by my donation and those of many others, that the book’s project was funded. But because of the poor planning, I never got the book prior to release as promised. Instead, it was a couple weeks after its release that I got it.

That sucks for someone who actually invested in it and receive no benefits. I was told that I would get a shirt as compensation. OK, I can do that.

But anyway, I got the book now and I will get into reading it real soon. And I got it signed!
