Spielberg to direct Ernest Cline’s ‘Ready Player One’

My wildest geek dreams have come true. A movie of Ernest Cline’s 2011 novel, Ready Player One is in the works and steven spielbergWarner Bros. Studios has Steven Freakin’ Spielberg set to direct it.

So why is this so amazing? First, they’re gonna need a bigger special effects budget. To give you an idea, here’s a brief synopsis of the novel:

In 2044, the world has deteriorated to the point that the population spends their days logged on to the OASIS, a virtual reality utopia where anyone can go to school, earn a living and customize their avatar. When James Halliday, the 80’s obsessed creator, died he hid an Easter Egg in one of his thousands of virtual worlds and willed that the person who discovered it would inherit his entire estate, including control of the OASIS.

Crypticon Seattle Horror Convention: Day One

I’ve been going to Crypticon Seattle for the last five years, and I have to say that this year’s convention was the best. It wasn’t the amazing celebrity guests though there were many including the Soska Sisters (writers/directors of American Mary) and Sid Haag (House of 1,000 Corpses). Nor was it showings of new indie films like Bind and Julia that I regret not having time to see. Nope, the best part about Crypticon was reuniting with all my fellow horror geeks and meeting new ones. As my new friend Tony Kay put it, Crypticon is horror geek summer camp.

Books are Delicious has a new look!

I redesigned the theme on the page complete with new header, updated About Me page, and a new theme. What do you think? Is this too busy? Can you navigate the page easily? Is there anything else you would like to see on the page?

My original intention for this blog was to focus on books and writing, but as you can see I’ve been posting a few videos from my YouTube channel Horror Addicts where we review and parody all things horror. So far, I’ve only shared videos on Books are Delicious that are book related. Would you like me to share all of our new videos here, none or stick to the ones about books?

Also, there was a suggestion to add a page listing my upcoming reviews. I was thinking about creating a TBR (to be read) page and marking the books that I plan to review either on my YouTube channel or this blog? How does that sound?

I want to hear from you! Please leave a comment with your feedback and let me know what you think of the new look and my ideas for the site. Thanks!
