DEATH CIRCLE - This is a single page comic--from my collection of 70s/ 80s early horror comic books--which I find quite inspirational, in my writing.

CHOMP! They Came from the Swamp

CHOMP! They Came from the Swamp - What would happen if you set a horror story in a greenhouse full of plants? “Little Shop of Horrors”, you might answer. A better answer is: “CHOMP! They Came from the Swamp”, which is a new exhibit at the Conservatory of Flowers in Golden Gate Park. The exhibit is chockfull of meat-eating plants in a one-of-a-kind display like none other. Get a sense of the reasons why plants attract, capture, eat and hunt. There are several large models with a POV experience tiny insects feel when these voracious predators turn them into their next meal. The show runs through October 19, 2014, so make time to see it!

CAPOTE - This is a trailer for the movie “Capote” for which Philip Seymour Hoffman won the Academy Award for Best Actor in 2005. The scope of the movie is closely confined to Truman Caopte’s decision to travel to Kansas and write “In Cold Blood” with Harper Lee. Sadly, Hoffman died of an overdose in 2014, after a lengthy period of sobriety.
