Twitter School

So recently I been really getting hooked on Twitter, and its so addicting especially when you are getting contacts in the film industry. My method? I am going to continuously tag them in my tweets and hopefully they will get the point. However with my decision to not go to school this year (which was quite heartbreaking) I know feel like I'm doing nothing with my life. I researched schools only a year long too save time and now I am on my 2ND year off from school, go figure. However in the end it came down to my trust in the school, unfortunately Toronto Film School was not very organized or in my opinion qualified. Changing the start dates without telling me, course description but I guess you can do that when your not government funded. As of now I am leaning towards Humber or Sheridan college here in Ontario however the courses are 3 -4 years. If I knew what I was doing last time I could be in my second year and almost done if not half way through. I just learned however that New York Film School, which apparently celebrities send their kids there for a degree, is coming to Toronto this Sunday and Monday for a question and answer period, I am thinking about going. The problem is the school is so expensive.

Any ideas?

Check In

As always its been a while since I have written, but don't get me wrong I've been reading..... lots.
About a month ago I finished a 2 book series, currently a third one in the making by Maggie Stiefvater with her fantastic creative skills in her brilliant novel Shiver and its follow up novel Linger.

Shiver: "For years, Grace has watched the wolves in the woods behind her house. One yellow-eyed wolf—her wolf—is a chilling presence she can't seem to live without. Meanwhile, Sam has lived two lives: In winter, the frozen woods, the protection of the pack, and the silent company of a fearless girl. In summer, a few precious months of being human... until the cold makes him shift back again.

Now, Grace meets a yellow-eyed boy whose familiarity takes her breath away. It's her wolf. It has to be. But as winter nears, Sam must fight to stay human—or risk losing himself, and Grace, forever."

This novel you may mistaken for another rendition of Twilight, without the vegetarian vampires. However I found it too be much more interesting, with no connection to Stephanie Meyers transformation and existence of werewolves. The existence of these werewolves in Shiver makes you think that if there really were werewolves in existence this is probably how they would have come about.

To take a turn of events now I am reading The Bad Place by Dean Koontz, and although I love all of Dean Koontz' books I must say this one is oddly weird. I am only about 100 pages into the novel but so far I have found a cannibal, a man who has no idea who he is but always finds blood on his hands when he wakes up from sleep, and two twin girls who has an odd way with the animals. To make this book even crazier apparently they are all related, with some kind of super powers. When did Dean's books become all about the supernatural?

To add in a little interesting facts, yesterday about 50 celebrities went up for bidding to raise money to build houses for the less fortunate. So far the highest I've heard is $6,600 and that was this morning for my favourite actor Zachary Levi from 'Chuck.' The prize? Believe it or not the only prize is to be followed on Twitter by the celebrity you buy for 90 days. Is it worth it? I don't think so, but then again if your rich and have $6600 to spend, why not waste your money.

What are some of the books you have read recently? And whats your view point on the crazy celebrity bidding?
