I hoped to have a review up; but my wife got off at midnight and after that we had to go grocery shopping and that took a while*. I wanted to post something and since I posted an Author Showdown this time last week I figured a repeat performance would be appropriate.
*Oh yeah, and I wanted to watch the episode of Monday Night Raw that I recorded while I was at work.

About Written in BloodI was born in Spartanburg, South Carolina on March 4, 1962. I guess that makes me old, but I certainly don't feel that way. I still play video games and listen to rock and roll music. I love movies, especially horror films. I have a beautiful wife who is my all time best friend. She supports me in everything I do. More importantly, she calls me out on my bullshit. This blog is dedicated to her for everything she's done for me.
