Werewolf Wednesday…Movies and Books and Cakes. Ridiculous cakes.

Still trying to get into the swing of blogging regularly. Life has been particularly wild lately — in good and bad ways — and I haven’t had much time to sit down and write a thoughtful blog post.

Instead, have an annotated collection of werewolf links.

DreadCentral.com: Paul Davis updates on S.C.U.M. and Gladiators vs. Werewolves.

Apparently Shaune Harrison has done some “wonderful work . . . on the werewolf designs and sculpts.” I withhold judgment until we can see more, but way, way too often the werewolf designs and implementations of those designs leave me wanting a lot better. (I frequently curse that with all our tech, no one has given me a werewolf look I love. Some have come close — I’m pretty fond of Dog Soldiers — but nothing that really blows me away.)

Bloody-Disgusting.com: Elvis’s granddaughter joins cast of Jack and Diane.

I am still intrigued by this movie. And from the pictures included in the article, Riley Keough is gorgeous, if a bit thin and young for my tastes. We’ll see how this goes. The way they keep switching up actors and delaying things, though, I worry it will never be made.

Cakewrecks has a hilarious post about wrecked werewolf cakes. If you know of any good werewolf cakes, I would love to see them. Cakewrecks did the post in honor of the release of Claire de Lune by Christine Johnson, which looks like it might be a really intriguing werewolf book, maybe without some of the sexist trends I keep running into in other books.

Fearnet.com: Teen Wolf series a go.

I’m not sure which would be worse: a ridiculous farce or if they tried to make it dramatic and serious. Or maybe both? Who knows.

Only tangentially related to werewolves, in that Jackson Pearce as a book, Sisters Red, out next month about werewolves that looks really awesome, but damn, the author is hilarious in this vlog music video about writer’s block.

I was supposed to be preparing to head to a conference this weekend, but life got in the way and I can’t attend. Still, maybe I’ll make writing progress instead. And blogging progress.

  • Is anyone else watching "Happy Town"? When I watched the first episode, I kept making gleeful noises when I recognized actors I enjoy. #
