Laurell K. Hamilton Movie - Suvudu - Science Fiction and Fantasy Books, Movies, and Games
The Independent Film Channel (IFC), together with Lionsgate and After Dark Films will be creating a made-for-tv movie based on Laura K. Hamilton's Anita Blake vampire-hunter series. The press release says they are looking for something to appeal to the "...men of ages 18-34 year who are looking for vampire content...." Given the erotic nature of her books, vampires aren't the only reason men in that age bracket are buying her books. The film is expected to air on IFC tv in the summer of 2010.
Sickened puppies ate Ontario teen's marijuana stash
The moral: actions have consequences. Case in point, an 18-year-old boy decides to get rid of some marijuana-laced muffins he had left over from several house parties he'd had while his parents were away on vacation. For some reason, he decided that the local park was a good place to leave them. Enter 4 dogs who ate the discarded muffins and became sick, leading to a police investigation of suspected anti-freeze-laced muffins. The boy was caught and explained what had happened, the dogs eventually recovered, and the teen has agreed to personally apologize for his actions rather than face criminal charges.
