Before getting into any of this...could somebody do me a huge favor
and replace the picture of me on the jms wikipedia entry (taken at a
bookstore in the UK) with this picture instead:

It's my own photo, so there's no issue of ownership, it's just that
the one there now makes me look like a ninety year old man.

Now....

One small thing that I can confirm is that yes, I've made a deal with
a cable network to write a pilot for a new TV series in the paranormal
genre. That's all I can say about it for now.

Have lined up the next couple of films I'll be writing after the first
of the year, and will have more to say about them...well, after the
first of the year.

Cannes. Not even a question. Just the whole experience.

The movie. The name of the company was both a nod to the movie that
made it possible, and just me being kind of a rascal. When I told one
friend the name of the company -- And the Horse You Rode In On
Productions -- he said, "Joe, you've gotta let go of the rage...."

Thank you, Russell...I no longer need to worry about people seeing
that photo and calling the police to say, "That's the guy!"
