  7. They all sound good today! Hope Channing does well in his directing, though I hope it doesn't take him away from being in FRONT of the camera too much!

  8. And AVATAR was Dances With Wolves meets The White Dragon. Channing's movie seems interesting; not the typical YA theme, which seriously makes me gag.

    1. yes, YA seems to branching lately into other topics... they've milked dystopia and all possible illnesses and now it's probably sexual freedoms and this and I think we will be seeing transgender and crossdressing YA novels too a lot

  9. Marcia is in a TV show, Code Black. I think it is getting good review. Channing looks like he lost weight.
