Auld Lang Syne

Here's a lovely Auld Lang Syne for you to enjoy. And another. Are you having a happy new year yet? How about now?

I am. I was assigned to write a bit about Bruce LaBruce's new gay zombie flick Otto; or, Up With Dead People. My hunt for fresh details (or even a trailer) was fruitless, so I decided to try to get in touch with LaBruce myself and see what was up with the movie.

To my great surprise, he got back to me right away-- so instead of a simple article announcing the upcoming premiere of the movie at Sundance, I got to break an actual interview with the filmmaker. Bruce was incredibly gracious and I hope his movie raises hell on the festival circuit.

As for the rest of the year, we'll see. I'll consider this a good omen.
