DEMON DIVAS to premiere at Cinema Wasteland

Just got the news: DEMON DIVAS AND THE LANES OF DAMNATION will premiere at Cinema
Saturday, October 3rd at 6:30 PM! This is a great slot and I can't thank Ken and Pam Kish enough for it. And as long as the donations keep rolling in (thanks everyone!) the 10th Anniversary DVD of THE RESURRECTION GAME will be on sale there as well. Wasteland is the patron saint of Happy Cloud Pictures!

The HCP Donation Drive started over at Facebook. If every one of my various 1,000 Friends over here at Myspace join the cause and Paypal just $10 to we'll have enough to put DD out on Blu-Ray, finish the 10th Anniversary DVD of The Resurrection Game and put together seed money for the still hush-hush new film currently in pre-production. Good karma and 10 years off of your Purgatory stay for anyone who donates. Not to mention our eternal, heartfelt love. ;)

Thanks to everyone who has supported us and HCP over the past ten years!

Daily Grammar Made Easy

This is primarily for people who consider themselves writers, journalists or reviewers but tweeters, texters, bloggers and updaters should take note as well:

"Look, it's simple: when you're writing out a sentence, sound out its contents for your peace of mind."

In other words: "Look, it's (it is, verb form) simple:

"When you're (you are, verb form) writing out a sentence

"sound out its (no apostrophe on possessives - to what do the contents belong? They belong to it) contents

"for your (no apostrophe on possessives - to whom does the peace of mind belong? The peace belongs to you) peace of mind."

Possessives: his, her, your, our, its.

Verb forms: You're (you are), I'm (I am), it's (it is), he's (he is), she'll (she will), we're (we are).

I know the whole point of the internet is to get it out fast to the world, but we're not lolcats, don't leave our language dying in the ditch. Think about what you want to say and say it. Especially if you're going to pitch me a story or an interview or a review. Even in email, style and grammar matter.
