Why I need to visit York, PA

Published September 6, 2013 by christinenorris

It seems that things in my life in the last year or so are somehow connecting me to the little town of York, Pennsylvania. First, the guys who brew ROCKIN’ mead are headquarterted there. That would these guys:

They own the J&J Miracle Mead Company. Their stuff is AWESOME.

Next, my friend Buffy Andrews lives in York. She is an author who just sold, like, a buttload of books and she runs the York local paper. This is Buffy:

This is Buffy’s Website

And lastly, but certainly not least-ly, is the Booker Albert Literary Agency.   They are also in York.

This is Jordy Albert. She is now MY AGENT!!!

Yay! I am so excited to be working with Jordy. She is so sweet and awesome.

So now I guess I need to make a trip to York, PA.

I HAVE A NEW AGENT!!!

Media Monday — What’s new for Fall TV

Published September 2, 2013 by christinenorris

Last week I went down the list of shows I can’t wait to return for Fall.  Most of them end up in my DVR, because quite frankly I don’t have time to watch them when they’re on air, and I like to fast forward through the commercials.

There’s not that much new TV I’m looking forward to this fall. I hate reality TV in general, especially network reality TV. I gave up on American Idol after Season 2. It’s just boring. There are some good looking new shows, like THE 100, and ALMOST HUMAN.  BACK IN THE GAME sounds like a re-boot of THE BAD NEWS BEARS, and we’ve taken a bunch of movies and turned them into shows, like ABOUT A BOY and BAD TEACHER (like teachers need any more help. Please stop.) There are more cop shows, like CHICAGO PD. Enough with the cop shows already, we have enough that are good. BUT, then we have…

AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D (ABC): Yeah, I am totally geeking out about this one. I honestly cannot wait for it.

COWORLD (SyFy): I am a Geek. I let my Geek flag fly. So watching a competition (I said I hate reality shows. I do. But THIS involves costumes and cosplay. All other arguments are invalid.) about cosplay is just like Geek Nirvana.

DRACULA (NBC): Nothing like taking out an old classic, dusting it off, and giving it new life. It worked for Sherlock Holmes (though I have yet to see a single episode of ELEMENTARY, I am faithful, as we all know, to the Cumberbatch.) At least this has good source material, and the talent is proven. I am not a fan of the vampire drama, not a Vampire Diaries or True Blood fan, but I might give this a gander.

THE GOLDBERGS (ABC): Okay, this one is a gimme. It’s brain candy, and as a child of the 80’s, I am powerless to resist. I love THE WEDDING SINGER too.

ONCE UPON A TIME IN WONDERLAND (ABC): Again, powerless in the face of Fairy Tale retellings. OUAT has dragged me in and held me captive for two seasons. And this is WONDERLAND. I seriously cannot wait for this one.

What are you looking forward to that’s new this fall?
