I know I'm tooting my own horn a lot lately but think of the months years you never heard a peep from me. A confluence is happening for some reason. Maybe Vermont and Banff had a part in it. Maybe I should blame Emily and Toby for the editing skills and encouragement. Or Hillary for being an amazing reader. Whatever is going on, I'm enjoying it while it lasts. Yesterday "Flash Flood" at Every Day Fiction and today an interview at K. C. Ball's 10FLASH.
Here's the link to the interview: A Look at Pomegranate
So has anyone seen the recent commercial for Kahlua?
It features a man and woman stumbling onto Montezuma's throne room. Being the king of the Aztecs, Monte demands to know how dare they intrude.
He asks "Are you kings?"
The girl starts to tell the truth, "NO we---" but she's hastily interrupted by her friend.
He shouts, all full of confidence, "Yes! Yes we are kings!"
And the crowd in the throne room explodes with cheering and demands for more Kahlua!
Now where can the genesis of this scene be found???? Who you gonna call?
You guess it. At least I think so.
On the roof of Dana Barrett's building, our guys with proton-packs stumble into Gozar. Here's the scene:
Gozer: [after Ray orders her to re-locate] Are you a God?
[Ray looks at Peter, who nods] Dr Ray Stantz: No.
Gozer: Then... DIE! [Lightning flies from her fingers, driving the Ghostbusters to the edge of the roof and almost off; people below scream]
Winston Zeddemore: Ray, when someone asks you if you're a god, you say "YES"!
Dr. Peter Venkman: All right! This chick is TOAST!
