FOUR DAYS until LONG BLACK CURL is available. Here's Alice Peacock​ doing "Paranoid," from her new CD "Live from Space"; the song is very important to one of the book's characters.

Thanks to Pandora's bluegrass channel, I think I've found the first classic folk song for Tufa #5.

The C-in-C and I watched JURASSIC PARK, a little rite of passage I went through with his older brother a couple of years ago. He TOTALLY bought into it, too; the little kids may have bugged me and every other adult viewer, but they completely drew him in. And even after nearly a quarter of a century, the special effects are still special.

They never did explain why the triceratops was sick, though.

You're right, that's another one that I couldn't believe was given PG-13.  Honestly I always check with reviews of friends before taking the kids to PG-13 because of this trend.  Our mother's day movie this year was the current Avengers, but we relied on other parents we know to give their opinions.

Last year's mother's day movie - the complete and subtitled release of Godzilla touring the US for the first time - gave my youngest nightmares. I really did think the distance created between black and white and old style effects would make it ok. But sometimes great acting and a director that can spin tension makes the implicit scarier than the explicit.

The new Tufa novel, LONG BLACK CURL, comes out TOMORROW.  Here's Lou Buckingham​ of the group Wasted Wine​ doing her song "Valiant and Fury Girls," which she was kind enough to let me use in the book.
