Updates and vagaries --

Delivered "Kafka Kaiju Eiga" to my son Dan, and spoke to him briefly yesterday. Looks like his zine (in which my humble four-page effort will appear) goes to press this week, and may even be on sale at the Boston Zine convention this weekend, if all goes well (yep, I rang Dan up, Dan, and he's into it! - that's a note to Dan Barlow, all). I'll post mail order info here ASAP, once my son gets it all together.

So, the day began with a rare one-sheet poster for Adolfas Mekas's 1963 underground feature Hallelujah the Hills falling into my lap (for the ongoing Vermont film book project). I've also lucked into a little goldmine of Mexican monster movie DVDs (including the rare 1933 Crying Woman) and much, much more... reckon I've got some serious screening time to clear for April!

Thanks to one and all for the birthday wishes on the comments, much appreciated. Also, please note that Colleen from the CCS has indeed posted the tabloid headlines from Tuesday -- if you haven't checked 'em out already, it's waiting for you in the Wednesday comments section, below.

I'm blogging amid travel, so signing off for today. Hopefully see you here tomorrow...
