this is just to say — book signing!
February 16, 2010
I’ll be in Albuquerque on Saturday, signing Kitty’s House of Horrors at the Coronado Center Barnes and Noble. Also on hand, the whole Wild Cards gang signing Suicide Kings. The event starts at 1:30.
I’ve been taking in as much of the Olympics as I can. These opening ceremonies were probably my favorite since the Athens summer games in 2004, which had the really amazing living art history procession. Vancouver gave us a really spectacular use of technology (those projected whales!), the First Nations presentation at the forefront, and some really heartfelt musical performances. Yeah. (One of my least favorite opening ceremonies has to be Atlanta 1996, where I thought, “You’re showcasing American culture and all you can come up with are pickup trucks and cheerleaders?!”)
Here’s my favorite bit from the Athens opening ceremony. This clip doesn’t have the original music, but gives the clearest view of the performers. (Can you spot Homer at the 3:05 mark?)
