The Catmage Chronicles
It's been hundreds of years since the Darkness last surfaced, a grim time when both humans and Catmages lost their lives. But now the Wild Ones work with humans again, and thirteen-year-old Andy Cohen gets the surprise of his life when a talking cat shows up in his front yard. Goldeneyes, a powerful Catmage, needs Andy’s help. In the exciting first installment of this new series, Meryl Yourish takes the reader into a world of magical cats, dark powers, and a boy who finds himself entangled in their war.

X-Men First Class on Friday, Mr. Popper’s Penguins on Saturday, and Pirates of the Caribbean today. I enjoyed them all. You know, I almost never listen to reviewers anymore. I’m even planning on seeing Green Lantern, even though I have … Continue reading
The Beaver is declared a flop–on opening weekend. Sucks to be you today, Mel. Awww. Are we sad? Nope. Not at all.
Daniel Cloud Campos is utterly amazing in this short film. Via Vanderleun.
Uninformed people, understandable. Uninformed journalists, no: So religious Jews wrapping themselves in tefillin and praying is an “elaborate ritual“? Really? Because I’ve seen people put on tefillin, and it’s not all that elaborate. The AP can’t even get something this … Continue reading
How do you give the awards for sound editing and mixing to Inception, but not the best score? Toy Story3 ? Seriously? Toy Story 3? No comparison to the Inception soundtrack. Well, at least they gave the right film best … Continue reading
