Coming to Santa Fe

We have some really cool events scheduled for the Jean Cocteau in March and April.

On Monday, March 13, we'll be screening the second season premiere of HAP & LEONARD, and Joe R. Lansdale his own self will be returning to Santa Fe to host the show, talk some, and scrawl in some of your books.



Then, just a few days later, on Thursday March 16 and Friday March 17, H.P. LOVECRAFT will be returning from the dead, to our stage. That is not dead which can eternal lie, and with strange aeons even death may die. Aiee aiee shub niggarath, the goat with a thousand young...



On Saturday, April 8, we have a special screening of the classic animated film WATERSHIP DOWN. We're doing this one in connection with Rabbit Rescue, who will be offering free pet bunnies for the attendees to take home. C'mon, boys and girls, help Hazel and Bigwig find a new warren.



On Saturday April 15, JOHN NICHOLS, author of the MILAGRO BEANFIELD WAR and many other great titles, will be visiting us for some conversation and booksigning, and we'll be screening the film of his novel in honor of his visit.



Just two days later, on Monday April 17, JOHN SCALZI will be in town on his COLLAPSING EMPIRE book tour. We'll talk, he'll sign, a good time will be had by all.



And on April 21-22, we'll have a return visit from the magician FRANCIS MENOTTI, who stumped Penn & Teller and filled the JCC the last time he was in town.



A number of these events are a good bet to sell out, so if you'd like to join us for any of them, I'd advise going to our website to secure your tickets now.

If only I could come for the Lovecraft event. I'm very interested in his work, I just haven't picked anything up yet. What would you recommend as a starting point?

Two questions. No relevance to your post, I apologise.
Is it possible that Jon didn't die but yet lived through unimaginable wounds? And have you seen the new King Arthur previews directed by Guy Ritchie. And if so, what are your thoughts on it? Thanks.

free pets are an extremely bad idea. taking an animal should be a soberly deliberated decision, not an impulse buy like a bag of licorice or popcorn. give away pets and i guarantee 80% of them will end up dead or at the animal shelter in 4 weeks. it is known. seriously this is a terrible idea. if pets are free, people attach less value to them. a shelter or reputable animal breeder makes adopters apply and evaluates their character. they dont hand them out to whoever walks by. you could be giving pets to people with animal abuse convictions, you dont know. btw i say this as someone who has read mostly all of 1k worlds and asoiaf, all purchased legally. i check this blog every day but i dont complain about you know what because my reading entertainment is just that, entertainment. but i have to raise issue with this.

We are doing this in partnership with Rabbit Rescue, the city's leading rabbit refuge and adoption agency.

On a different subject
What are your feelings on the Jets getting rid of all those veterans? Is it something you can get behind that needed to happen or do you wish they would have kept at least 1-2 of the guys out of those they got rid of?

Also sorry to double post
But the Rabbit thing is awesome. Anywhere I can donate to help this since it seems adoption fees and the like are being covered by the group.

I was unaware that Omar and Mark Antony had a show together. Once again my life is made better by reading your live journal.

Lovecraft!
Is there any chance (you know, just as a theoretical possibility) that you will ever write about Carcosa?

That would be so cool!

Lost tales from the Mountains of the Morn maybe?

Envious of those getting to see Watership Down on the big screen!
What a fantastic and underappreciated telling of Adams' story. I vividly remember watching it as a child (and crying my eyes out at the ending.) It inspired me to read it as a young adult, and now read it aloud to my children. Happy memories. I'm glad that work lives on.

"offering free pet bunnies for the attendees to take home"?

I think I preferred the ad in the butcher's near the location: "You've read the book, you've seen the film: now eat the pie!"

I've never met a rabbit that didn't improve on acquaintance with garlic and claret… (If you want my Boozy Bunny microwave casserole recipe, i can supply!)

You'd eat Bigwig? Hazel? Fiver?

Monstrous.

You must be an orc. They eat hobbits too.

No, I think I'm just an overgrown Dwarf.
(I can't stand Hobbits: duplicitous little ___s.)

I find it curious that in the US, rabbits are seen primarily as pet animals. They disappeared from tables here in the UK for a while because of myxomatosis, but when my Mum was a girl in the '30s, men would come round selling them from a horse-and-cart, to be skinned and prepared at home. You can still get rabbit in supermarkets, more as a game meat than as the cheap meat for the poor it used to be, pre-myxy.

You da man, George!

Those rabbits come from an interesting time in feature length animation.

Not sure I'd show some of those scenes to a little kid who was adopting a bunny the same day.

Rad as hell, tho!
Wish I lived close!

Is there any chance that HBO will allow you to show the original Game of Thrones pilot on Jean Cocteau?

No chance whatsoever.

Too bad. Sounds like they are pulling a George Lucas, who don't want to release the original unaltered Star Wars trilogy or The Star Wars Holiday Special on Blu-ray.
(And since we are talking about studios refusing to release movies people really want to see; Channel 4 in England is still holding back the short film The Gourmet from 1984, about a rich gourmet who have decided to eat a ghost.)
