Flash Flood out at Every Day Fiction Today

My story "Flash Flood" is up at Every Day Fiction today. If you get a chance, check it out.

Also I just read in the Los Angeles Times Calendar section that this is the 25th anniversary of Ghostbusters!!!

Sooooooo....

I have a couple things planned: quotes of course and maybe tomorrow I'll have time to write a bit about the influence on movies that Ghostbusters has had. Yes, the rhythm, the humor, is rife in film since the first days the boys arrived in the five boroughs with nuclear accelerators on their backs.

Meanwhile, be satisfied with these clues: Die Hard and the most recent Kahlua commercial. I got your back, Dr. Venkman.

And then there's:

Dr. Peter Venkman: [as the Ghostbusters approach Gozer] Grab your stick!
[the Ghostbusters draw their handsets]
Dr Ray Stantz, Dr. Egon Spengler, Winston Zeddemore: HOLDIN'!
Dr. Peter Venkman: Heat 'em up!
[they arm their packs]
Dr Ray Stantz, Dr. Egon Spengler, Winston Zeddemore: SMOKIN'!
Dr. Peter Venkman: Make 'em hard!
[they rack their handsets]
Dr Ray Stantz, Dr. Egon Spengler, Winston Zeddemore: READY!
Dr. Peter Venkman: Let's show this prehistoric bitch how we do things downtown... THROW IT!

One of my favorite movies. I was playing around with the demo of the game last night. :)
